A few hours later, I met Jen and Katie for dinner at a Mediterranean place called Zeitouni. I always see Katie raving about falafel on her blog and when we were brainstorming dinner options, falafel sounded so good to me, so I told her to take me to one of her favorite falafel spots. We each had a glass of red wine to start.
And then I of course ordered the falafel platter.
It came with salad, hummus, pita, and probably about 6 falafels. I had to take two home- it was a massive platter!
Dinner with Katie and Jen was great. They are two of my friends that aren't completely obsessed with babies and pregnancy, and I kind of need that right now. Unfortunately, anytime to get together with many/most of my friends now, babies becomes a hot topic of discussion and sometimes it's tough for me. This was a nice break.
Saturday morning I completed a 5K run. I just ran a route in the neighborhood on my own- no race fees or anything. It went fine, but I waited til after 9am to go out and it was kind of hot out, so it took a lot of ice and water too cool me down after my run. The good news is that my left leg/foot issues seem better and haven't been giving me any problems.
Saturday evening, I headed to Brittany's house for a Cinco De Mayo celebration. I saw a bunch of friends, including Cindi and Molly.
I also consumed a plateful of Mexican chips and dips, and had a Mexican beer.
Bets were placed on the Kentucky Derby, but I didn't bet. We all gathered to watch it though, and I did think it was a pretty exciting race with the winning horse coming out of nowhere at the end!
Sunday was rather low-key. House cleaning and laundry happened. Greg came home from a trip and we ran some errands. The weekend ended with dinner at Beef O'Brady's outside with Clyde.
I had chicken fajitas and enjoyed another perfect night dining al fresco with my two favorite guys.
We hurried home to bed where Clyde crashed.
Greg and I watched our friend Austin make his TV debut on the show Tough Love New Orleans. He was one of Greg's groomsmen in our wedding and is now on Reality TV!
