If we’ve met, you’d know I like to stay on my feet. The world is an amazing place with something new always to be seen and experienced. The sounds go hand in hand with the sights. There’s an experience to be had around every corner. More reasons to turn weekends into mini-vacations.
Don’t get me wrong, we all have a million things going on but it’s doable! It doesn’t have to take all day, break the bank or be hundreds of miles away. It only has to be so much fun to make you forget all of your worries and be in the moment. Here’s a glimpse into my last weekend!
Friday evening after work I headed over to Farmers Branch, Texas to the Bluegrass Heritage Festival. I was about as excited as a kid in a candy store. Bluegrass isn’t something that I get to experience as often in Texas as I did back home in Vermont but I grabbed hold of the opportunity.
Saturday morning I was up and at ‘em early. First, a 15.5 mile bike ride on the Trinity Trails in Fort Worth. These trails seem endless and I pass thru so much – Backwoods Rentals, the park for picnics, basketball and the Pillar Project. Farther downstream following the Trinity River, I came across fitness groups, live music and even a few fly fisherman. All smart folks – enjoying every ounce of the amazing weather!
Next up – a brewery tour!
Who doesn’t love a good brewery tour?! This is one of my favorite things to do. Each location is a new experience for your sights, sounds and tastes. This afternoon I met a couple friends at the Bearded Eel in Saginaw. The stout – yum! Delicious! Who doesn’t love a Saturday afternoon spent with good friends, hearty laughs with a cold brew in hand!
This calls for a girls night to see Gone Girl. Beyond twisted. If you haven’t seen it – it’s good. You’ll get a taste of what “crazy” really looks like.
Sunday Brunch. Brunch has to be one of my favorite meals. On this Sunday, I ate at one of my favorite places, Cat City Grill in Southside Fort Worth. Eggs Benedict – you make my belly so happy!
The afternoon brought a choo-choo! Can you ever go wrong with a ride on a miniature railroad? I think not! Transfixed back to my younger years. Everything was right in the world! (Read more by clicking on the link!)
Afternoon / Evening.
While everyone was watching the Cowboys game, I made these tasty, delicious and fresh out of the oven blueberry muffins (and my apartment smelled the best)!
What’s the best way to prepare for a five day work week? Make sure you have a weekend that gets you even more excited for the next!
What are your plans for this weekend?
