The Bronze Age, Just Picked (my favorite!), and Mallrat | Fat Cat Creamery Ice Cream | Mozzarella | Bleu | Bauer was not loving the exam table
Friday we tried to make a dent in the Houston Chronicle's Top 100 Restaurants of 2013 list. Last year when the list came out, I had been to 16 restaurants. This year, I have been to 35, so definitely an improvement. We went to Chinatown to have beignets for dinner, but the place was cash only, we had none, and traffic was too terrible to go get some and go back. Sad trombone. No beignets for me.
We ended up going to see The Spectacular Now. I thought it was pretty cute. It's not a guy movie at all. But, there was craft beer and frozen sangria so the night wasn't all bad.
Saturday was Bauer's vet appointment. My vet told me a lot about how the act of giving cats shots can cause tumors (whether it's an immunization or just saline solution) so his lump is something to watch but not something to worry about now. So I won't. It was likely due to the steroid shot he had a few weeks ago (he has asthma...) Thank you all for your reassurances and for caring about my kitty!
I got a haircut on Saturday afternoon. I have been trying to grow my hair out and I was doing so well, but I think she cut more than she needed to! I tried a new place that has been highly recommended. I pre-paid for the haircut when I made my appointment online. Well, when she finished my cut and I went to check out, I was told there would be an additional $20 fee for getting my hair blow-dried and because it was longer and thicker than usual Um, what? No. So I asked to speak with a manager, she said there was a miscommunication, and they sent me on my way. Lesson learned, it never hurts to be a pain and ask what happened. You may save yourself $20.
Dinner Saturday night was kind of the star of the weekend. Andrew made pizzas - one with roasted potatoes, bleu cheese, and basil and another with mozzarella, proscuitto, and butternut squash. YUM. We ate that and some locally made ice cream while we watched The Five Year Engagement. I thought it was cute but very long.
Sunday was errand running and watching football at the gym. I finally went and checked out Wet and Wild nail polish that Joey highly recommended and I love it so far! You can't beat $2 a bottle. Also my fantasy football team isn't sucking nearly as bad this week and I just might win!
Do you ever feel like you surround yourself with too much noise? That's how I felt late last week, like I just needed a break from email and to take it easy. So I didn't blog on Friday. And I learned that the world didn't end and that all of your lives went on just fine without me, and hopefully we are still blog friends. It was nice and I highly recommend it. I really love blogging, but a day away here and there is great, too!
Linking up with Sami and Leeann!
