Weekend Rewind

Wooooooo for the first warm weekend of the season! We had 70 degree weather all weekend and it was absolutely glorious.

Kev and I wanted to try a new local restaurant so with Yelp and Urban Spoon’s help, we dined at Mussel & Burger Bar in Jeffersontown and we’ll definitely be heading back again soon.

We both had our eyes on the “Good Ole” burger which was a 100% angus beef patty with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and red onion on a pretzel bun, however we didn’t want to both order the same thing. That’s boring! So I volunteered to get something else – the spare rib nachos.

While they were delicious, Kevin’s burger was out of this world! It was hands down, the second best burger I’ve ever had and I immediately had order remorse after trying a bite of his.

One of the other highlights of Mussel & Burger Bar was the sweet potato fries that I ordered as a side. Perfectly salty, crispy and sweet – I’m counting down the days until we go back!

IMG_2757 Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and headed to Cherokee Park for a run with Grace. The hills were killer, but the weather was too good to pass up. Did you know Louisville is actually “known” for their parks? In fact, Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park in NYC, designed many of the parks in Louisville. Cherokee Park was stunning – we’ll for sure head back for more runs!

On our way back home, we stopped by a big blue box to drop off save the dates! Coming soon to a mailbox near you. 😉

IMG_2759We got home just in time because Danny and Sara were on their way to visit! After enjoying the weather and a great BBQ dinner, we Skyped with Peter for some evening drinking games. Always a wise decision.

IMG_2761 Today included a trip to Target, writing a few thank you notes, setting up the digital picture frame we got for Christmas (I know, it’s April) and making a killer plate of homemade butternut squash gnocchi, which I combined with sauteed mushrooms for dinner tonight.

IMG_2783Now I’m sulking because it’s Sunday night, which always comes way too soon. I think adults should get a summer break – we need it more than students anyways!
