Today I’m sharing some highlights of my weekend which included some quality family time and date night.
Another weekend is over and it’s time to dive into a new week. How was your weekend? I hope you were able to find some time to relax and have some fun.
Quality time with the family.
On Friday afternoon my dad, brother and I got together for lunch and a movie. My brother was craving East Side Mario’s, so that’s where we went.
We started off our meal with warm bread and salad. It’s always a challenge for me to remember not to fill up on those because I know my meal is on the way. I ordered the sausage and pepper penne. I Was hoping for a bit more bell pepper, but it was still pretty good. The sausage had some heat to them which was kind of nice.
I’m a huge Will Ferrell fan, so I was really looking forward to seeing Holmes and Watson. Unfortunately it was absolutely terrible. It felt like they were trying way too hard to make jokes and as a result it just fell flat. Even though the movie wasn’t very good, it was still fun to spend a few hours with my dad and brother.
The theater we went to had reclining seats. It was the first time I’d ever experienced them, which my brother thought was pretty funny. Apparently he only goes to theaters now with recliners and couldn’t believe that I had never been to one. I have to agree, the seats were way more comfortable that the ones I was used to before.
Date night at Vagabond.
Saturday afternoon I headed over to my boyfriend’s place. We took his bulldog puppy over to the pet store to get him a new collar and harness because he had outgrown the harness already and was close to doing the same with the collar. It’s amazing how fast that little guy is growing.
He was quite the popular guy at the pet store, with both people and other dogs wanting to meet him and give him a pet. There’s just something about a puppy that’s hard to resist.
For dinner that night we walked over to Vagabond. Neither of us had been there before so we decided to check it out. I’m surprised it took us so long to try it out because just a few blocks from where my boyfriend lives.
My boyfriend got the beef dip while I went with the reuben sandwich. The Russian dressing on my sandwich was so good! When I mentioned to the server about how good it was, she said that sometimes she just eats the dressing with french fries – which I would imagine would be seriously delicious.
If you’re in Calgary and going to a Flames game or a concert at the Saddledome, be sure to check out Vagabond before. It’s within walking distance and the food is delicious. The only caveat is that my boyfriend and I both thought that the alcohol was pricey.
We walked back over to my boyfriend’s place (pretty quickly because it was cold with the wind blowing) and we watched Unbreakable on Netflix. I had never seen it before and I liked it more than I thought I would when my boyfriend told me that it was a superhero movie. Both Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson look so young in it.
