Weekending: The One Where I Attempt to Golf

Weekending: The One Where I Attempt to Golf

Friday night was pretty chill. We went out to dinner at a local Mexican restaurant and of course, it was amazing. I’d eat Mexican food everyday if I could.

We had wanted to go on a self guided walking tour of Old Town on Saturday, but it rained most of the day. Instead we decided to hit the driving range. I’ve been wanting to try golf for a while now, so this rainy Saturday afternoon presented the perfect opportunity.

Guys, it was pretty hard. I grew up playing softball, so I had a really difficult time altering my natural bat swing to a golf swing.I had the worst time keeping my feet planted. In softball, I would always take a small hitch step before my swing. Plus, you really open your hips up in softball. You spin on both of your feet. That’s not the case with golf. Oh and you are supposed to keep your front arm straight. My body was having none of that. I had to do a mental check before every swing to make sure I wasn’t doing everything completely wrong.

I managed to get to a point where I was making contact most of the time, but I still have a long way to go. I’m excited about it though. I think it’s a nice sport to learn, because it’s a very social game and it’s something you can continue playing when you get older.

Anyways, Saturday night we went out in DC and did a bit of bar hopping. It was nice out and Ivan and I had a good time letting off some steam. We ment to meet up with a few friends, but in the end it didn’t work out. That’s alright though, we always have a good time together. First we went to Madhatter, which is bar we go to a lot in Dupont. Then we headed over to U Street, where we ended the night with a jumbo slice. I’m the worst when it comes to drunk food. I always end up eating pizza at some point.

Sunday I did my meal planning and grocery shopping. Then we took Kidd to the dog park in the afternoon and I made Shredded Red Curry Chicken with Slaw for dinner. We capped the day off with a nice bike ride down to Baskin Robbins.

I love Baskin Robbins. Although every time I go there I think of this fantastic scene. Not that I’m complaining. I love that movie.

 What did you do this weekend? Anything fun for Earth Day?
Today I am linking up with Healthy Diva Life for Marvelous in My Mondays & Biana at B Loved Boston for Weekending

  1. Wow, you made me miss Baskin-Robbins. We do not have one around here anymore. Your food looks scrumptious and I’m happy it was a great weekend!

    1. it’s just so good. We have this place here called &Pizza. It’s basically a Chipotle for pizza. You pick whatever you want to go on it and then they put it through a conveyer belt oven, which only takes like 1 minute to cook it. I usually end up there at 1 in the morning hahaha

    1. thats so funny. My sister texted me after I posted about it on instagram and was like “you are ridiculous. what’s up with this golf thing?” She doesn’t really have confidence in my ability to golf either hahah

  2. Oh my god. That Mexican food looks SO good. That photo just made me order Mexican food lol. I’m praying to god it has some flavor! ;) And kudos to you for trying golf! My family lives for golf, but I’m not so hot at it. You’re way ahead of me for actually making contact with the ball! :) Your bar hopping night looks fabulous as well!

    Hope you’re having a great week!
