Macaroons and Balancing Acts!

I have had weeks of stress, furniture shopping, car accidents and car shopping have not made for relaxing times. Honestly it feels like go go go, and I’m just ready to stop stop stop.

The coast definitely isn’t clear yet, but my boyfriend and I decided to take the weekend off from all the craziness. My car still isn’t resolved, fighting with the auto body shop and insurance company has been loads of fun, but stressing about it this past weekend wouldn’t make it get resolved any quicker.

I am so glad we decided to do that! The original plan was to go away for the weekend, but that quickly dissolved for a variety of reasons. Instead we stayed local, but had just as much, if not more, fun doing that!

Saturday we spent the day in Georgetown. After the rain stopped in the morning it was the perfect weather for it! We got crepes at this cute little café that’s a favorite of mine called Snap for lunch and then walked around Georgetown for the afternoon. I tried my first macaroon ever at this place called Olivia Macaron. I was too excited about trying them that I forgot to take a picture of them! So I took a picture of the shop instead. I ended up getting a Salted Caramel, and a Cassis. They were both great but the Salted Caramel was my favorite.

Yummy macaroons!
Yummy macaroons!

 

We finished our day with some late night frozen yogurt, my favorite!

Monday I learned that we completely failed during our time at Georgetown. Apparently, at the exact time we were there an event called Taste of Georgetown was also occurring that showcases local restaurants. We would have loved it and we were only one street away! That’s what we get for not researching before hopping in the car!

Sunday we made our way to the Annapolis Renaissance Festival which is always a great time. My favorite part was when we stumbled upon the Barely Balanced show just as it was starting. Those three were hilarious and so talented! My muscles hurt from watching some of the stuff they were pulling off!

You can’t really tell but they’re a “human water fountain” so they’re spitting water out of their mouths.

In other news I’m back to my regularly scheduled running, finally! I’m still not using my GPS watch for the time being so I can just focus on using running to help me distress, but I’ll have to pull it out soon because I signed up for the Baltimore Relay on October 18th! I’m very excited and I feel much more comfortable running that as opposed to the half marathon which I’m not quite ready for yet.

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
