After a long week for both of us and working later than I’d like to admit on Friday evening, Scott and I exhaustingly pushed each others’ buttons – poking and huffing over little, nit-picky things. We can see this clearly now, but at the time, we were pissed at each other. In his attempt to start the night over and kick the weekend off right, he suggested we walk Jack down to the Miwaukee Ave Arts Festival. After a protest on my part (I’d rather stay home!, I’d said; man, I was moody), he convinced me we’d have fun, spend time with our friends, and (obviously) look at art.
That night, we made our own prints at the Spudnik Press booth (which we plan to mat and hang as part of our living room booster), connected with an artist that had me drooling for donuts, and snacked on bad-for-you foods (and boy, was it yummy!).
We followed our Friday fest bright and early with a day of bicycles and brews at Tour de Fat, a favorite of ours that comes to the ‘hood once a year. This time around, we watched our intake of Sunshine, allowing us to avoid our afternoon slump and enjoy a late night barbecue on the patio with our neighbors.
As the weekend wound down, I treated myself to a bit of pampering with a pedicure (in Turquoise and Caicos) and a pint of my favorite treat (coffee Haagen Dazs, mmm).
Happy Monday, all! How did you spend the last few days?
