1. This weekend was for…
Friday happy hour at Teddy and the Bully Bar which included moscow mules, pisco sours and an americano on tap. 
Saturday morning was for body pump followed by an afternoon at the pool with Kim & Mallory. After a busy day of laying in the sunshine and playing with Cesar the corgi we grabbed an early dinner at EatBar in Arlington which included some amazing roasted cauliflower with preserved lemon, sesame glazed baby bok choi, lamb sliders and s’mores donuts. YUM.
Sunday was for brunch at Open City with Mallory and spending the afternoon with my by myself at the National Building Museum. I’d never been and it was a great way to spend a hot afternoon. I learned all about the Gustavino family and how their tiled vaults shaped many of Americas great public spaces like the Supreme Court, Grand Central and the Boston Public Library. But my favorite exhibit was definitely House and Home which looked at the houses we build and the things and people we put in them to make them homes. It had models of famous houses, videos of families in their nontraditional spaces, all types of household knick-knacks and it even mentioned straw bale houses! (Our family built a straw bale house when I was growing up and it was a totally weird and special experience). All in all, time in the museum was well spent and I fully intend to go back and play on their mini-golf course sometime this summer.
Only THREE DAYS of work this week and then a glorious four day weekend. Can’t wait.
