We were in #PrinceEdwardCounty on a spontaneous day trip over the last long weekend so it wasn't a surprise that all of the restaurants we called we're booked up for dinner.
While walking back to the car to search out a McDonald's my wife spotted a small chalkboard with a menu from @midtownbrewingcompany so we decided to stop in and try the food and boy were we glad we did.
The steak was sous vide and then finished on the grill. It was served with some highly addictive fries and a roasted shallot. OMG!! It was absolutely delicious. We also had their heirloom tomato salad. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'd be happy with this salad alone, the burata was so nice and creamy and the dressing was spot on.
I'm so glad the boss spotted the small chalkboard board and saved me from a McDonald's meal. Go visit Midtown, great beer and yummy food!
Day 2 of my staycation is off to a glorious start. Yoga this morning followed by the most luxurious (and long overdue!) facial. Feeling amazing! Thanks Sue Marie!
I decided to give myself a small treat. The hotel I work for has discounts on rooms every now and then. So, why not take advantage? When I got to the hotel, they asked if I'd be interested in a slight upgrade, no charge. Fuck yeah! I didn't know this shit was gonna be this good! Mini kitchen, tons of space, 3 Tv's and pimped the fuck out! These next two nights are gonna be awesome! #lasvegas#sincity#staycation#palmscasino#palmsplace#giggity#studiosuite#goddamn#relax#chilltime
Night ya'll! The bedroom wall is painted, pay day is coming, a 35mm lens will soon be mine, and interiors posts galore will be coming your way. For now, still longing back to our night in the Cotswolds & our hotels decor 🙌🏻
These days I seek nature in my down time! I woke up yesterday a bit disappointed because my plans were to go to the beach but for various reasons those plans changed & I had a negative sour face 😕. I'm sharing this because I took a deep breath in and clicked on my affirmations app which said "I am flexible and flow easily when things don't go as planned." How fitting right ?! I repeated this affirmation a few times and released my cranky face and attitude and I'm thankful I did. I had an awesome yoga practice and meditation followed by delicious leftovers for lunch and then my friend and I sought out a water source for some play time.
We drove about an hour away and found a pull off along the side Of the road along the American river and to our surprise when we hiked down the bank there was a lovely sandy area and some beautiful little rapids!
After hanging out a bit I challenged my friend to catch fish with a stick and up he went to his car grabbed some line and his handmade lures and taaaa daaaaa it worked! My inspiration was a success he caught and released two rainbow trout and taught me how to fly fish with a stick. It was an amazingly fun overcast day.
Life doesn't always follow the way we wish just like a river with bends and rapids you will never know how it will turn out but you do have control over your reaction. I'm thankful I chose to release the negative energy and enjoy an amazing day. I'm thankful I'm starting to see that when I release that which is out of my control the universe still has my back. 🙌🏼🐟 ^* and my backside ( I totally busted my arse on a slippery rock) 😜
