Something Saturdays (4/1/17)

Happy April Fool's Day! Michael's favorite day and the day I am suspicious of everything lol.

This week has been SO NICE. I love having Michael home!

Last weekend we enjoyed the beautiful weather on Saturday by checking out the patio on a new-to-us restaurant nearby, The Main Street Grille--we loved it and will definitely be back! Then we watched Moana and spent the rest of this week having all the songs in our head.

Monday and Tuesday we went down to Marietta, OH (the oldest city in the state, a super cute small river town). Michael was helping with some trainings for work so I spent my days exploring. I spent most of my time at Front Street, Marietta's downtown. I started with lunch at Boathouse BBQ, a spot right on the river-it was pretty tasty but the view was definitely the selling point. Then I checked out some local shops (SP Curated and The Cook's Shop are a blogger's DREAM!) I also grabbed dessert at The Buckley House and had a chocolate caramel mousse that was TO DIE FOR. When Michael was done with work we had dinner, and he had a beer, at Marietta Brewing Co. (Michael loved their milk stout and grilled chicken sandwich, and I really liked the Brewhouse pizza-it had braised ribs, turkey, bacon, caramelized onions, roasted garlic, and bruschetta...OMG). The next day I had a few chocolates from Putnam Chocolates (I actually wasn't a fan), did some more shopping (Whit & Whimsy was my favorite of the day!), enjoyed the park and saw some steamboats. Before we headed home we got dinner at The Levee House where we both loved our appetizer (fried ravioli and spinach artichoke dip that came with salsa) but were both meh about our entrees (burger and root beer pork). Wednesday, back home, Michael and I spent the whole day shopping/running errands and then had dinner with his family. Thursday his friend David came over and they hung out and also hung up some paintings in our living room. Friday we saw Beauty and the Beast (EEEE!) and did some more shopping. Today we're having dinner with my boss Val and her hubby, and then showing them our house! Fun fun!

Also....we're attempting to decorate and are terrible at it. We like simple, clean, modern decor and it's ridiculously difficult to find what we want apparently. If you have places to shop let me know!

Posts from this week 
Monthly Meal Plan-April (Easter/Spring)

Movies/TV Talk (assume there'll be spoilers)
Beauty and The Beast-I LOVED IT. Like...all the feels. Don't get me wrong, the original will always be superior, and there were a few things in the movie I would have done differently, but there were also some things they improved upon (I liked the way they handled the backstory much better!) and I loved the entire cast.

Moana-LOVE. The music is fantastic (of course, Lin Manuel Miranda composed for it so just...of course.)

Once Upon A Time-Gahhhhh KILLIAN! NO! UGH-EMMA THIS IS NOT HIS FAULT! (Meanwhile like....yay for Evil Queen? But I still feel terrible for poor Regina...)
