Hello and happy Monday gang! Hopefully your Monday is off to a good start.
We had a pretty great weekend, equal parts fun and productive! We spent a lot of quality time with my mom who we hadn’t seen in about a week since she was in Michigan last weekend.
On Saturday morning Ava and I met my mom at the Del Ray Farmers Market for some shopping and walking around. This particular farmer’s market occurs every Saturday from 7am-12pm right in the center of Del Ray on Mount Vernon Avenue. While I have driven past this farmer’s market many times, I hadn’t yet actually shopped here. While a small market, it was packed with many vendors selling beautiful produce and flowers, pastries, coffee, meats, pickles, and other yummy things.
I bought a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers (check out my Instagram), a jar of sriracha pickles, and hummus. Mom purchased a lot of delicious fruits and veggies for us to enjoy as well. I stopped by Stomping Ground to pick up an iced latte to go for Ava and my walk back home. (Mom drove to the market and was going to drive to our house).
Soon after I went to a much needed yoga class at Mind the Mat while Tommy and mom watched Ava. Just as I got home Tommy was putting Ava down for a nap so we all enjoyed a leisurely afternoon before Tommy, Ava, and I headed to a colleague of Tommy’s house for dinner.
On Sunday Tommy, Ava, mom and I enjoyed some pool time at my mom’s rooftop pool and ice cream at Ice Cream Jubilee.
This morning after a great (read: butt-kicking) barre class at Mind the Mat, I settled in at Emma’s Espresso and Wine Bar for a bit. I had a work call and while on said work call I enjoyed a yummy bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich and my second cup of coffee for the day!
Emma’s is one of my go-to places to work at since it’s generally pretty quiet during the day, it’s relaxing and comfy, and the beverages and eats haven’t failed me yet.
Soon after my call I was on my way to the Navy Yard in DC. I had to do a walk-thru of our condo since our last renters have moved out and we are in the process of moving in our new renters this weekend. Busy times!
Catch ya’ll tomorrow. 🙂
