Ahhh, what a great weekend! Don’t you just love those weekends where you feel refreshed Sunday night instead of worn out? The weather in Williamsburg has been gorgeous- 60 degrees and sunny. I took full advantage of the sunshine and spent as much time outside as I possible could.
Friday night kicked off with the usual Hazelwood/Scallion household tradition- pizza night! Riley made a pizza with turkey sausage, veggies and pepperoni. It was a little more meaty than I’m used to, but he used lean turkey sauasage so it didn’t taste too heavy.
He’s toying with the idea of doing a deep-dish pizza, but I don’t think we have the right pan for it. Since I filled him in on how much you all drool over his pizzas, he now feels that he needs to come up with something completely new and unique every week. The pressure’s getting to him!!
Saturday morning started out with a trip to the Williamsburg farmer’s market. While there are usually a few around here, the best one in town is done right in the heart of colonial Williamsburg. Most people bring their dogs, there’s often a band, and local restaurants get showcased by cooking food to sample right there.
I met my friend Kate there and we walked around to check everything out. I learned the downside to farmer’s markets: they’re expensive! I spent $30 and got a whopping four items:
I bought 2 pounds of ground beef from a local farm, fresh eggs, a loaf of cheese bread, and some mocha biscotti. All the items have been well worth it so far, but it was still pretty pricey for me.
After my purchases, my friend and I walked up and down the historic Duke of Gloucester street and back. Round trip it’s about a mile and a half, which was a great way to start the Saturday. While we were walking, we ran into one of the local goats!! You read that right. There’s a man in Williamsburg who owns four goats and he walks them through town on a leash. I’ve seen them before while running, but never stopped to chat. We got to meet Luke, who was super calm and let me pet his head.
It’s official. I want a pet goat. Every time I see goats, it makes me think of this video that has be cracking up no matter how many times I’ve seen it: Goats yelling like humans. Hahaha I can’t even handle that video!
The rest of Saturday was spent walking Bella and grilling out some fresh burgers with Riley.
The highlight of my Sunday was seeing my good friend and roommate from college, Joanna. Joanna’s a rock star. She’s a nurse practitioner who works full time and manages to be an amazing mom to the CUTEST baby ever at the same time. I got to meet little baby Ella for the first time yesterday and it made my day.
I won’t lie- I’m not what you would call a “baby person.” Most of the time, babies look exactly the same to me. I usually can’t even tell if the baby looks like the mom or dad, so PLEASE don’t ask me who I think they look most like!
That said, for family and people that I consider to be family (like Joanna), it’s a totally different story and I love seeing their babies. Ella was, hands-down, the happiest baby I’ve ever seen and so so so cute!
The rest of the day was spent chopping, prepping, and cooking some food for the week. I also almost burned the house down trying to make this delicious baked penne pasta with meat sauce:
Don’t worry, my house is still standing, but it was a scary moment seeing flames come out from my stove.
Workout & Breakfast
I’m starting another 6-day work week, so I kicked it off right with a great workout. I got in a 30 minute run on the treadmill, followed by some leg work- squats, lunges, donkey kicks, calf raises, and some other stuff. I didn’t really plan it out and just made it up as I went, but it was a good one!
Breakfast is kind of a savory hash today- eggs, potatoes, and veggies topped with sriracha. I pre-roasted the potatoes and chopped the veggies yesterday, so breakfast came together in about 7 minutes. So good!
Now I’m off to shower and get ready for work, so I hope you all have a good one!
What’s the best thing you did this weekend?
Are you good at recognizing parent’s features in babies? Please tell me I’m not the only one who can’t tell at all!
Do you have farmer’s markets where you live?
