Hello friends! I had a busy weekend so lets skip all the shenanigans and get right into it, shall we?!
The Scientist said he has a surprise for me and asked me to meet him at Rock Bottom in the Theater District for dinner. We had dinner and as we were leaving I looked up and saw a sign on a local theater that said “The Shins” were coming to play. I got so excited and told The Scientist that we had to get tickets to see them. Then I looked back and realized that they were playing that same night. I looked back and The Scientist and he had two tickets for us! I was surprised with concert tickets!
The concert took place in the Wang Theater which is just gorgeous on the inside.
Such a fun night and a total surprise!
Fun Fact: Rock Bottom was the first restaurant that The Scientist and I ate at together just by ourselves and The Shins was one of the first things we talked about the night we met.
I woke up bright and early to hit the salon and get my hair all changed up for the summer.
Before & After
I love my dark hair, but it is fun to try something different for the summer.
Since it was Cinco de Mayo I met up with The Scientist a little later in the day to grab a margarita and celebrate. Having a plethora of Mexican restaurants in the neighborhood is a nice bonus on May 5th!
We finished up our drinks and headed out to the most exciting part of the day…to see The Avengers! I love all of those super hero type movies (although Thor was not my fave) and was just as excited to see this movie as my nerdy comic book loving Scientist.
I loved the movie! The change of Mark Ruffalo as hulk was perfect and I didn’t hate ScarJo like I had thought I would. Oh, and who doesn’t love a good Robert Downey Jr moment?!
Fun Fact: To see this movie 3D digital cost $35 for 2 tickets through Fandango. SERIOUSLY! I kept my glasses. That was the least they could do for me.
Sunday=Shopping! It was the return of the SOWA market for the season and I could not have been more excited.
My pal, Meg, and I enjoyed a day of outdoor shopping and dog watching. Come on…how cute is that pup?! I wanted to sneak up and steal him.
Lunch was from the BonMe food truck. Mmm…
While I was gobbling up my sandwich I couldn’t help but laugh when I caught this sign out of the corner of my eye on a rib food truck next door. Technically…they are right!
Final Results of Shopping…
Pickled Grapes from Grillos Pickles.
Nothing but goodness in these bad boys!
Myer Lemon and Sea Salt Popcorn from Quinn Popcorn.
LOVE tshirt in Sign Language & Hindi from Zamforia. Love the cute potato chip bag packaging!

The rest of the night was spent with this guy just hanging out and looking out the window.
No grapes for you buddy!
Fun Fact: The SOWA Market is a MUST visit if you are in town throughout the summer!
The whole weekend was just what I needed after a busy work week! I hope you all had a good few days.
Check back tomorrow for a fun new giveaway!
