…I’ll post all my eats from yesterday, but I’m really excited to share my experience last night. PS – This is my 400th post!
But before I get into yesterday, take a peek at where it all
started with Jenn! Meet new people, see what others are eating, and join the party!
We didn’t go grocery shopping on Mother’s Day, so our fridge is bare. So, our easy go-to breakfast is Breakfast Cookies. That’s about all we have on hand, and of course coffee…always coffee..
I think I was starving all morning because I played an entire soccer game the night before, which I haven’t done in weeks. The calf was cooperating and I was able to play at about 75%. So, earlier than normal, I was starving for a snack…or two. Even though I know this cheese is shelf stable, I was still weirded out, so I ate a little and threw the rest away. Also, those pretzel thins were stale, so I ate a few and then tossed those too. The almonds were consumed about 20 mins later, since I threw most of my first snack away.
Extreme levels of lazy and indecisiveness were prevalent. After my lunch nap, I still didn’t know what I wanted to eat. So, as I was driving back to work, I decided to stop at Nations Freezer Meats and order a cheese burger and fries. Needless to say, I had food coma about 30 minutes after eating…
Again, with not much else to eat in the house, J whipped up some TJ’s Chicken Sausage with rice. The Guidette and L were there, so we all had one sausage a piece. The Guidette and I killed that bottle of wine (re: juice) before heading off to our event.
Dinner Part Deux

Sip your way through cocktail variations on this award-winning spirit

Here’s what went down
This was the Guidette’s first Yelp Elite Event or any Yelp event for that matter! I love bringing newbies! When we arrived, they were still setting up, since they had two classes scheduled for the evening. We checked in, made our name tags, and laughed about seeing the Guidette’s Snap Chat crush at the bar!
They finally let us into the patio area of RR, it was set up so cute. As we walked in they had apps to the left and the Hendrick’s girl walked up with a tray of Hendrick’s and Tonic. We set our drinks down, grabbed some apps, and found the perfect seats!
