I missed the Society of 1895 luncheon again this year. At least Brian got to go on our behalf. I’m going to make this luncheon one of these days.

Brian took some photos and sent them to me to make me feel included.

We almost missed it too because we were just lounging around the house after work. I’m so glad that Jay called to remind us. Jay and Becca brought their new puppy Gronk for the photos and then they came over to hang out and have dinner at the house after. Gronk got to play with the girls in the yard.

It was a lovely way to end the day, which is even more reason why Good Friday was a GREAT Friday.

Good Friday Was a GREAT Friday

Posted on April 8, 2018 by under Food and Drink.    

Even though I had to work on Good Friday, it was still a great day because Brian was off that day and was able to meet me for lunch at the pop-up park down the street from my office. It was a beautiful day and one of our favorite food trucks, Uno Mas, was there. Here are a few pics of our delicious lunch.

Brian got their Cuban sandwich with the jalapeno fries.

I tried their elote, which is delicious!

And, of course, I got some tacos. You can buy food from the best taco truck in town and not get tacos!

Until next time. Cheers!

Final Movie Before Vacation

Posted on April 7, 2018 by under Food and Drink, Things to Do.    

We normally don’t watch movies on opening weekend but we made an exception for Ready Player One because Brian has been waiting for this movie – FOREVER.

I bought him the book four years ago and it quickly became one of our favorites. We don’t typically enjoy the same types of books but this is one that we both enjoyed reading. Brian enjoyed the book so much that he reread it again recently in preparation for watching the movie.

Oh, you might notice that we went to see the movie in the balcony. We haven’t watched a movie in the balcony since Warren 21 opened. Somehow they didn’t have RPO showing in the 21, which we thought was quite odd.

This is Brian’s “excited” face. His excitement is two-fold. First, he is super excited to finally see the movie that he’s been waiting for since he first read the book four years ago. Second, he found out that he could get Walnut River’s Warbeard (his favorite beer) in a giant 32 oz. mug.

Cheers!

I was on steroids that day (literally, it was prescribed by my doctor) so I couldn’t drink (I usually get a 32 oz. hard cherry limeade) and had to settle for dessert.

After looking over my options, I decided on an old fashioned chocolate malt.

Here are some pictures of our food.

Pretty basic because we are basic people. Also, we try to stick with finger foods at the movies. Full meals are just too much hassle with the makeshift table.

After the movie, Brian got a photo with a movie display for another movie that he’s been long awaiting. It’s on like Donkey Kong after we’re back from vacation because we’ve got some movie passes to burn and rumor has it they won’t accept them anymore after the end of May.

Easter Surprise

Posted on April 6, 2018 by under Zumba.    

The YMCA is always closed on Easter Sunday but Alex, Amanda, and I had the treat of seeing the Easter Bunny on Saturday in between our Zumba double.

There is a new Zumba class in Andover on Saturday mornings at 8 am. The girls (Alex and Amanda) had been doing it since it first started. I’d been wanting to do it with them but first I was sick. Then, the following weekend, I had to cover Amy’s 7:30 am Zumba class at East Y. If it wasn’t one thing, it was something else. Anyway, I knew I had to make it happen last weekend because my Sunday class wasn’t an option (due to the Y being closed for Easter). If I was going to get my normal weekend workouts in, I’d have to do two classes on Saturday.

I’m glad I did because we had a blast. I had to take my medicine (the doc had prescribed steroids, which I had to take with food) so we went to Dunkin Donuts in between classes. Brian picked us up from the Y and brought us back. This photo was taken while we were waiting for my 10:30 am class to start.

BTW, I’m not sure if you noticed but the Easter Bunny shrank compared to last year. I’m making a mental note to get a photo with the Easter Bunny again next year to see if there’s a change. Until then, have a fabulous weekend!
