This weekend was about "SELF". About being us and having fun without drama. I love my friend Katie. She has a big heart and soul. She is really truly someone I needed in my life, when moving here. This move has been a good one, but at times I just want a huge (LIFE X WORK X PEOPLE= STRUGGLE). She is like a sister, bestie, close buddy, long lost friend, and has my back. She listens to me when I'm going through tough times. It's hard being a women, but better to have friends who helps you work through it.
The drive up to Connecticut was suppose to be me SLEEPING. That didn't happen we laugh, giggled, snacked, talked, sang. It was great. We then arrived around 800pm (due to traffic). When we got there it was very empty, dead, and the roads were free. It's crazy that I would be ok with that for a weekend, but after that I need crazy nonsense happening all day long. It was nice to be away. I love the suburbs.
In the morning we drove to Boot Camp and I was a little nervous, but honestly it wasn't that bad. I didn't eat much. A little cup of fruit. I drank a lot of water the night before and during. This really helped me breath and to be mentally prepared. Afterwards we were hungry. We stopped at this spot about 30 mins from the gym called "The Sloppy Waffle". I called and let us know a big group might be coming and to make sure they knew it was Katie's birthday. We arrived at that venue which wasn't crowded but you knew it was delicious, the hole in the wall, and was normally always busy in the AM. The staff was helpful, sweet, friendly, and overall great customer service. They are a CASH ONLY establishment, but had at ATM that was only 1.67 to take out cash, which is really ideal!

Side note: The pancakes weren't the best, but I will say they looked tasty and big....
|Beautiful weekend in CT, Hartford|
We were told the address BUT no name, but of coarse I looked up everything and come to find out it was a Spanish spot.
We arrived to our destination BARCELONA RESTURANT; WINE BAR, (my favorite song was on: Classic Man--that doesn't have anything to do with this story). and it was cute. Then we arrived inside and it was adorbs. We had a seat outside and our two friends greeted us. I finally wore heels with a white and black theme going on. It was outside with a little breeze and the tiki torch like heat warmers. We sat down and was told we will have a few entrees/desserts/appetizers brought out to the table. We had shots too.
I really enjoyed my weekend here in Hartford Connecticut. It was my first time coming and we drove from New York and it only took about 3 hours and some change. I love road trips. In fact on the way up I decided to head to Rhode Island. I was going to head up for a fun drive and enjoy myself and maybe stay at whatever hotel I saw on the way. I'm not sure, but stay tuned for the next: adventureswithdaishaandkatie.
