Although I didn't do anything fun, I did get a great opportunity to network and talked with someone who offered me a potentially amazing opportunity for my professional life. Super exciting!
I woke up bright and early to work out at 7am, so I could go house hunting for the whole morning. It is definitely exhausting, but hopefully the hard work will result in a house of our own soon!
Since we were in the area, we had a late lunch at El Campeon, which is an awesome authentic Mexican restaurant. Mmm!
I ordered a Beef Barbacoa and my guy had three taquitos. They were both served with beans & rice. These were easily the best beans that we've ever had! I'm not a huge fan of refried beans, but these were perfectly seasoned with a wonderful texture. Also, they had a great display of breads, so bought a couple to take back home. :)
The horse racing was so much fun, especially because we had entrance into the Vessels Club. It was a beautiful course, which was totally surprising to me.
We were located just near the Finish Line, which made for some exciting races! We had a bit to eat and drink while reading the race guide and placing a few bets. My guy made 3 bets (including one long-shot) and I made 2. He didn't win any of his... and I won both of mine! Mine were a bit more conservative of course, so it didn't quite make up for our losses. Yep, this pair of big spenders lost $2.10 playing the ponies. :)
We decided to skip out on the last couple of races after the sun went down and met with some friends for the night. We were out really late, and a fun time was had by all!
I was sooo lazy the next day especially after having done so much the day before on so little sleep. We accepted a couple of meal invitations (again!) and decided to accept them because it was such a lovely day. For lunch, we went to Athens West. I ordered a salad although it was covered in way more gyro meat than I was expecting!
We walked up and down Main Street, which I've loved doing since I was a kid. We even saw a couple of cute vintage cars! Next, we went to The Crema Cafe bakery to pick up a couple loaves of bread. My guy couldn't resist getting a canele. I can't blame him, because they're scrumptious!
Afterwards, I did a little bit of blogging at home and we watched a movie. Yep, nice and relaxing! Next, we went to Thai on Main in Seal Beach again for dinner!
For appetizers, we ordered Beef Satay and Angel Wings.
The main courses were a noodle dish with chicken & bean sprouts, a curry trio, and prawns.
More networking, and I met with Mary for a post-weekend chat. I've been a busy bee even on the weekdays!
This weekend, I'm headed to a fun event in the park and a birthday party. I didn't realize that I knew so many June babies!
What are you all up to for this lovely summer weekend?
