As I write this post it makes me sad to think our vacation week has ended. Vacations should NEVER end right?
I just started getting used to the “no work” thing and I kinda liked it. We had no set plans each day and kinda went with the flow. Each morning we started our day with breakfast & a long walk. It felt great to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather as well as get our bodies moving bright and early. It just set things off to a great start.
On Friday we made another trip to Tod’s Point. We really couldn’t have lucked out anymore with the weather. Blue skies and warm temps made our vacation beautiful.
Friday night Marc and I had a “date night.” My mom offered to watch Ava so we could get out and have some alone time.
We decided to go to L’Escale Restaurant in Greenwich CT.
It’s a fancy restaurant located right on the water in the Delamar Harbor. Marc and I arrived around 6:15pm and we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or out. It was such a pretty night so we didn’t hesitate to take an outdoor table.
For an appetizer we had Roasted Oysters that came in a bacon, shallot, wine sauce.
I’ve only had oysters a couple of times before and I wasn’t a fan until I tried these. They were so tasty and I was sold after my first one.
Marc and I also enjoyed a glass of Chateau Red Wine. For our entrees I chose the Halibut Provencal which came with fennel, artickoes, tomatoes & potatoes in a saffron sauce.
It was amazing and I’m pretty sure I couldn’t put my fork down. Marc had to tell me to slow down!!
Marc had Branzino Boillabaisse which was rock shrimp, mussels, saffron potato, sea beans, rouille. He liked it a lot!
Our night was perfect and I am so thankful for the quality time we were able to spend together at dinner. After dinner we decided to go to another local steakhouse called Gabriele’s that had a small bar to have a drink together so we didn’t have to rush home!
Marc had a Cucumber Gin Fizz and I had a Skinny Margarita. Both drinks were quite refreshing.
After lots of chatting and good times we headed home!
Saturday and Sunday were all about productivity we did some attic cleaning, some organizing and stuff around the house.
We also had spent some time at Fairways At the Griff.
Ava loved being outside and of course smelling the flowers.
Our vacation was full of great food, lots of smiles, awesome workouts, perfect weather, relaxation and family time. I really hate to say this but I wasn’t looking forward to going back to my regular routine. I enjoyed having Marc home to spend my days with and I might shed a tear that vacay is over.
Now I’m off to teach Group Power and get my sweat on!
How was your weekend?
Is it tough for you to get back to work after taking a week vacation?
