Weekend Recap

I live for the weekends that Ryan is not working! His current schedule has him working 2 weeks on, and 2 weekends off. So we really try to pack in a lot!

This weekend we decided to really try to get a mix of fun and rest -- as we know the next couple of weeks are going to be insane!

Friday night he surprised me, and got tickets to see Gabriel Iglesia - aka "Fluffy". Such a good show! There is nothing more healthy for the soul than a comedy show, I always say! The concert was held at the "Ava Amphitheater" - which is at a casino west of town. It is actually a really cool venue - as the seating is out in the lawn and you are surrounded by mountains.

We went to our favorite Mexican food truck for some late night eats after the show: Karmelo King. I swear this is the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. 

Karamelo King: A food truck in a random parking lot in a shady part of town. They only come out at night. And you have to order in Spanish - or point to what you want.The sodas they serve are from Mexico. The women run the truck, the men run the grill - and they play mariachi music and yell at each other in Spanish.

It. Is. Awesome. And delicious ;)

Saturday morning I cooked and packed, while Ryan did homework. Then we headed to a friend's house for a pool day/BBQ. We came home and did some more packing, and watched Marley and Me - and I sobbed like a little girl.

Sunday morning: Ryan and I went to Reid Park -- which is a golf course in the middle of the city with a 3 mile running path around it. We did a 6 mile run together, and then walked over to Starbucks for some Americanos and shared a chocolate croissant.

Did you know that I have gawked at this croissant in the window for YEARS. (about 8 years to be correct, because that's how I've been drinking Starbucks). But never would order one - because I was being calorie conscious. Boy was I missing out all these years....

Life is too short to gaze at the croissant in the window.;)

Then we went to mass. Did some fun "Home Depot" shopping". The rest of the day was very "adulty" and quite lazy. We packed up about 5 boxes of kitchen items. Caught up on Orange Is The New Black (which we are getting semi-obsessed with), ordered pizza, and watched the 1st real monsoon swoop through Tucson!

Now the crazy begins - as we head into closing week! We signed our life away tonight. Tomorrow we do the final walk through. And while all this is going on - it's also the most stressful week of the year at my job because Medicare started their audit yesterday! I'm going to be so happy to kick my feet up Sunday night, when we are all moved into the new home! ;)

How was your weekend? What is your go-to indulgent treat?
