Weekend Review

This weekend I got out of the house and tried some new places. I made a goal this new year to actually get out of my comfort zone, go out and do more fun things. Well I'm trying to make that really happen! So I headed downtown and tried out two places. The first place was for a meal. It's called Pizza Rock. 
The food was really good. The place had a nice mix of people and wasn't too busy. I had the Gorgonzola cheese fries and they were tasty!

Once we left Pizza Rock, we literally went next door and hit up Dive Bar. I had heard about this place but had never been inside. They have dueling pianos and a huge fish tank above the bar. The tank is so big that they have an actual mermaid or merman swimming around in it. 
I thought the dueling pianos was the best part! The mermaid was kinda cool but odd. I wonder if their hands get water-log? One of my biggest issues when going out to new places is trying to figure out what to wear. I have tons of clothing but I can never gauge what to wear when going to a new place. After much consultation, I ended up going with some black skinny pants, a white top with studs on the sleeves and some silver flats. I fitted right in!

Then I spent the rest of the weekend doing homeowner projects. Let me tell you, I thought this was going to be an easy project.... HA! It's harder than it looks trust me. I had this giant hole right in front of my front door way path. It's near a fountain and I wanted to fill it and make it look pretty. I had been seeing ads in the Sunday papers for lava rock so I went with it. Five bags later.....
I think it completely changes how the front of the house looks and in a good way! I also added this cute little mushrooms to the path...
And I totally mowed my lawn! Like all of it. I have a huge front yard and a large backyard so when I mow it, I usually alternate every week doing just the front or the back because it's so much. This weekend, I did both. 
So there you have it kids, a very productive weekend! Hope all of you have a great Monday!

The mermaid is really kind of strange but interesting too. Was she in the tank the whole time you were there?

Can you imagine putting that on your resume?
