weekend recap

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had some time to something fun/inspiring/relaxing/exciting this weekend! Ryan and I went to one of our favorite spots, the Northern Waters Smokehaus, for a quick bite to eat-he had the Cajun Fin (House-smoked Cajun salmon, green onion cream cheese, roasted red peppers, pepperoncini and lettuce on stirat) and I opted for the Buffalo 06, their oldie, but a goodie corned beef sandwich (swiss, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing)

I totally forgot to snap a shot of our eats, but luckily other visitors to the Smokehaus have posted pics for me to share with you :)

If you ever visit Duluth or are driving through, you HAVE to go to the Smokehaus-it is deeelicious and if smoked fish is your thing, you can even order from them online! After chowing down on our sammys, we went to the Zinema 2 to (finally!) see Moonrise Kingdom. I really love supporting the Zinema, a locally owned theater here that is known for showing indie flicks/film festival hits and having quirky showings like Bloody Sunday films (horror movies and a bloody mary bar of course!). But anyways, Moonrise was such a sweet and endearing film, seriously. The two main characters, Suzy and Sam, are just awesome and I think everyone can relate to feeling different and not quite normal at some point in their life and these two capture the awkwardness perfectly. Great performances by every person in the cast-Wes Anderson, you sure do know how to make a film! It was a lot of fun and I'm definitely glad we took the time to go check it out...

Other weekend activities:
-apartment searching online (what did people do before craigslist?!)
-a lil shoe shoppin'! Two pairs, $46! Bargain shopping success.
-went on a very hot run with Reef
-P90X yoga with Ry, which was basically hot yoga since the house was 85 degrees
-visited with our roommates family up the shore, too much fun! Made me miss my family, near & far!
-had a verry lazy Sunday: Game of Thrones watching, frisbee throwing with Reef, and reading

All in all, a solid weekend.
