Extended Weekend Wrap Up: Juneteenth 2.0

Updated: Jan 22, 2022

Ugh...I meant to get this Weekend Wrap Up done yesterday but definitely enjoyed the extended weekend a tad too much (and a random pop up from my boys distracted me). we are! My holiday weekend started last Friday. I am taking advantage of utilizing leave as much as possible becuz I'm making up for always overworking especially during holidays. Since I have such a life these days **cue Maury's lie detector test** let me share my world wind of fun.

Come on now...ur not new here to know how the weekend kicks off. Hoooowever, if u are-VOILA!!! Starbucks jumpstarts me. I've been finding recipes on IG n came across this Cinnamon Almond Milk MockyYahToe (macchiato) which is a whopping 90 calories n taste every bit of it (since the toppings are LIGHT n the pumps are sugar FREE). Yes, I know...Dr. Miami hasn't gotten to my name on the waitlist yet. I'm building up confidence for my future "Ted Tawk" so I find a chill spot to sip my mocky n clear my throat chakras via IG stories so if u miss em...u miss the moment.

My Saturday was pretty packed...with NOTHING!! I was able to loosely do my typical wknd Wegmans run with a focus of snacky foods. Purging my closet has been taking longer than anticipated. Ugh...who knew I'd have such a hard time departing from freaking clothes's **cue tossing dress** coming along **cue taking dress out the pile** slowly...but..surely! Just keep me in ur prayers! My goal is to dwindle my stash down to classic/timeless pieces that matures with me. That's the politically correct way of me saying...I need to be able to fit everything in ONE closet n not spill shyt over to Mason's.

Luckily for the sake of this post...I had a life on Sunday! I took a trip to one of my favorite spot of MD where I can get lost n enjoy being awaaaay from the crowds of DC. The weather was perfectly not sweltering hot n I enjoyed a day to self with frolicking in Downtown Annapolis where I hope to reside later in life. I've never had a problem enjoying good eats n going places solo! Hell I like me so I know imma have a great time.

The views n calmness of being around the water never gets old to me. Since I went off a whim, I didn't have a specific spot to eat in mind. There's so many to choose from but I wanted something light and SEAFOOD!! My feet led me to Pusser's Carribean Grille where I got some skimpy oysters (they must've been vegans) n a soft-shell crab sandwich. What do I do while dining to self? People watch! Make up their lives n how they sound in my head based off how they look lol. I play catchup in the DM's on social media, scroll here n there then enjoy the scenery.

After lunch I enjoyed along the water where I wondered where I need to be hanging to mingle n make friends WITH boats...I went to hit the town. Now yall KNOW I prefer to be out n about as EARLY as possible but since I was being so spontaneous, it was after 2p and unbeknownst to me, there was some type of festival event shindig happening **cue anxiety of too many people**. The streets are only but so spacious (for my liking) n it was just a hoard of folks including them slow walking azz kids wit fist dripping of ice cream as they held the cones. I stopped in a hat place called Hats in the Belfry. I'm not even a hat person but I do love fascinators and the window tugged on my heart.

After not wanting to spend $100+ for a hat, my sweet tooth kicked in as I was headed back to the car. I stopped at Vanderwende which is located in the tuck nearby a a lobster roll spot. I got my childhood favorite flavor as a default since I couldn't pick-Rocky Road!!

After satisfying the sweet tooth, it was time to head on home. This is where I got humbled. The cool weather felt like it got cranked up by ten degrees as I walked further away from water n the shade of trees. My phone is dangling off ONE percent...ONE and I have a horrible memory soooo I forget where I park **cue horror scream** I'm trying to look for the feature on my phone where it tells u where u parked n NOTHING. I can't think of nere nothing I parked close to where I can use it as a landmark n I just felt myself walking in the wrong direction n further away until I paused to take a deep breath. I doubled back in my phone (nervous it would cut me off any minute) to check the location of earlier pics taken. After that...instincts led me the rest of the way n my memory kicked in. Thank Gawd for Deja Vu huh lol. Of course I enjoyed fireworks later that night and DC surely FORCED me to enjoy an extensive show that lasted WELL AFTER...and I do mean WELL (emphasize it to the tenth power) a marathon of fireworks.

Then BAM!! Just like that...its back to work!! When is the next holiday again? Crazy to think we are HALF way through the year...just wow!! I had a great weekend...extended weekend...a gal can get used to this!
