Good morning and Happy Sunday. Sorry about my MIAness the past few days, I have wedding plans coming out of my ears :)
My major highlights of the last few days include my ice cream date with an awesome second grader. I was happy (though not surprised) to learn how many friends and family members have stepped up to help her and her mom through a very tough time for them. It is amazing how great people can be when crisis strikes.
Later the same day Eric and I headed down to the Cape, and I woke up early Friday morning to go to a beach yoga class.
Unfortunately I went to the wrong spot on the beach and by the time I actually found them, the class was 10-15 minutes in and I didn't really want to be that girl, so I just turned around and did a few minutes of my own beach yoga...
If you've never done this before, I highly recommend trying it. Not only is the atmosphere obviously perfect, but the uneven surface gives an extra challenge to those downward dogs.
The rest of the day was spent kayaking on the Bass River and shopping for bridal party gifts. I decided against taking my camera kayaking but I did take a picture when we came back so you could see the general gorgeousness of the area...
If you are ever in the Yarmouth area, definitely check out Howie's Kayaks on Route 28. We've now done the Bass River Cruise and rented kayaks from them and both were fantastic. I think it's the best way to see the Bass River unless perhaps you are a billionaire and can afford one of the insane mansions along the river?
While shopping at the mall I discovered something quite cool...
GLOW golf! So mini golf, inside, with like blacklight stuff. Kind of a cool kids (or Kelly) thing for a rainy day, don't you think?
What's Your Restaurant Style?
For some reason this summer has brought a lot of visits to restaurants for Eric and I. Though really, that's not that out of character for us as going to restaurants is probably our favorite shared pastime. Last night we tried an Italian restaurant in Hyannis that was a bit off the beaten path. I didn't take pictures of my food because it was pretty dark and I didn't get anything too interesting. However, it got me thinking about restaurant styles.
Last night Eric and I both got a drink, he got an appetizer, we both got entrees (though mine was a half portion, I love when they do that) and we both got dessert. Not surprisingly our meal was a lot more expensive than what we normally spend, but that's okay because both Eric and I VERY rarely order dessert (I couldn't pass up the mango sorbet) and we also don't usually order drinks when we eat out.
However, I know a lot of people who go out to dinner and go all out- drinks, appetizers, meal, dessert every time. I imagine most of these people go out less often than us though, and see it as more of a splurge. I like this idea, but I enjoy trying too many new restaurants and frequenting our regular restaurants too much to switch to this "style." Plus, I'm using more than full after just eating not even all of my meal, forget dessert or appetizers : )
How do you tend to eat at restaurants? Do you splurge and get everything? Or maybe go more often and order less?
