In Real Life

After the gym yesterday, Michael and I drove to the Kennedy School to meet Carbzilla and her husband. 🙂

We met her in the Boiler Room Bar.

The McMenamin’s chains re-purpose old schools into cool bars and restaurants. I like the Kennedy School a lot and Tiff and her husband did too. They were visiting from Seattle and when we’d planned a place to meet she happily agreed to the Kennedy School. It’s one of the places I like showing out of towners.

It was my first time meeting another blogger in Real Life and it went great!

I ordered a McMenamin’s IPA and Michael (still suffering from allergies) just ordered iced tea.

Michael and I split the spinach and artichoke dip. Neither of us were very hungry because of a big lunch a few hours before but it was a good munchie snack.

We both had a great time! (Thanks for meeting us Tiff!) They really do need to move to Portland. 😉

She brought me a gift from Vashon Island. Chocolate Fudge! I cannot wait to give it a try.

And it’s low in calories? Yay!

After they left, Michael and I walked around Kennedy School a little bit.

It was so great to meet Tiff and her husband. My first “blogger meeting” was a success!

The rain had finally stopped and it was a nice fall afternoon. Michael and got a few things at the store for dinner and then headed home.

Instead of going out to parties or a bar, we decided to stay in and watch scary movies. I got in my jammies (super sexy, right?) and lounged around. He made popcorn. Neither of us were very hungry for a big dinner so I made a plate of munchies instead.

The smoked garlic was amazing. It wasn’t spicy at all like garlic can be.

I opened the jar of olives that’s been in the pantry for quite awhile. They were good too but the sauce was a little greasy in my opinion.

I cut up some white cheddar cheese, a few wheat thins, and sliced salamis.

Fattening? Yes. Salty? Very. Delicious? Totally! It was a good snacky dinner. I had a glass of white wine with it, too.

We watched “Let the Right One In” and “The Frighteners.” I can’t believe I’d never seen The Frighteners! I love Michael J. Fox! It was a good movie. Needless to say, I stayed up way too late eating and watching movies.

But it was fun!!

QUESTION: How did you spend Halloween weekend?

  1. I’m a gateway blogger. Once you meet me, you’ll be flitting around town meeting every blogger you can score!

    That little Riesling is adorable! Where did you get that? I will have to find some of that next time.

    We had a great time and are working harder than ever to move to Portland! GREAT meeting you IRL!
