Weekend Recap

My weekend was pretty average, but lots of fun! Here’s the rundown:

Friday Night

Jorge and I finished watching Game of Thrones season 1.

It’s a good series, but they really cut back on the important battle scenes. (and by “cut back on”, I mean “cut out entirely”)  It’s fun to watch, but I’m liking the books a lot better. Isn’t that always the case?

Saturday

Saturday morning was work, work, work. Blaaaaah!

Saturday afternoon, Jorge and I went with our friends Damayanti and Leo to one of our fave downtown Cancun restaurants: Muellecito. They have an outdoor terrace with a palapa roof that I looove, and the food (mostly Mexican seafood) is amazing.

I'm obsessed with their free shots of "caldo de camaron"... shrimp broth. Spicy and delicious!

They always serve chips with numerous sauces (tamarindo, chipotle, etc etc). Since I'm *still* on a diet, I limited myself to 2 chips with chipotle mayo.

My lunch! Shrimp burger, yum 🙂 Again, thanks to the diet, I had to give all my fries to Jorge. However, I can tell you from past experience that they are delicious.

In the early evening, we drove around with Damayanti and Leo while they ran some errands, then we put my diet resolve to the test even further with a trip to Peter Piper Pizza, which is pretty much exactly the same as Chuck E Cheese. (We’re so exciting on Saturday nights.) We received possibly the worst service I’ve ever gotten in my life (they even ran out of pizza sauce at one point…), but it was still a fun time with friends.

Sunday

At 8:30 am Sunday morning I got a text message from Nadia saying “Wanna go for a run right now?” Since I still had awhile before church, I said sure, and we met up at the park at 9. We ran/walked 2 laps around the park (4 kilometers total), and we even saw a 5-foot snake cross the path right in front of us! Scary…

I had to cut our run short to go to church. I’m lucky my church is casual because I showed up in sweaty running clothes, but nobody seemed to mind. Still, if I ever run that early on a Sunday, I’ll make sure to bring clothes to change into next time!

Sunday afternoon I did nothing. I had some lunch, took a nap on the couch, watched some Animal Planet and played with the dogs.

Suki also had a relaxing Sunday afternoon, it would seem.

When Jorge got home from work in the evening, we showed up late to his little cousin Sofia’s birthday party. We spent an hour eating cake (or veggies, for me) and having a laugh with Jorge’s parents.

How was your weekend?

Weekend Recap

Our weekend was less than exciting (sorry), but still nice and relaxing!

Friday Night

Jorge got to The Beer Box around 10 pm and spent awhile chatting about work, and my friends Dama and Nadia (plus their boyfriends and a few of Nadia’s coworkers) met up with us around midnight. There was some really great live music, too!

Saturday

Saturday I slept in because I had the day off from work (woo-hoo!), and spent a few hours watching TV and reading until Jorge got home around 4. We swung by his parents’ house for late lunch, and I talked to my dad on the phone for awhile.

Saturday night, we went to our friend Jhonny’s birthday party, which was held at the house Jhonny just bought. The original owners left him some pretty funky colors in the living room (bright orange walls with purple ceiling beams), but the renovations he’s done so far have been pretty nice. Wish I’d taken more pictures of the house, but I got distracted by tons of friends and a pretty sweet taco buffet:

Sunday

Once again I had a relaxing morning, then around midday I took some pics of the house so I can post a much-requested house tour this week! (finally)

At 2 pm, I met up with Nadia for a run/walk around Parque Kabah. She’s been running for much longer than I have, and she had to slow down to my turtle pace, but we had a great time anyway. We did 6K with mostly walking and some running, but by the end I was feeling faint, which has never happened to me before. I usually run in the evenings, so I think it was the heat that got me.

Jorge and I had planned to go to Plaza La Isla for the afternoon and evening, but when he got home around 4 we both accidentally fell asleep. He was tired from work, I was exhausted from my run. By the time we woke up, we decided to just do something quick, so we grabbed a sushi dinner at Paseo Cancun mall and browsed a bit, then headed home.

Tell me about your weekend!
