Memories from the weekend:

After a 5 mile run on Friday night, we met friends at Barriga Llena.  I replenished by eating this whole casserole dish of yaroa - a Dominican version of "loaded fries".  Always hits the spot.

After dinner we went to the drive-through bar.  I never thought I'd be saying that.  No worries, we didn't drink and drive, instead we sat on their patio listening to the many cars blasting reggaeton pass through the drive-thru..  Awesome live music, haha.

On Saturday morning we went to a tiny bakery/cafe that we discovered on FourSquare.  We both had croissants filled with cream cheese and guayaba.  Lately I'm loving anything guayaba, it tastes like a sweet berry jam.  On Saturday night we saw This Means War and it was the funniest movie I've seen in a really long time!  Highly recommended.

This was our view on the way to the beach on Sunday.  Doesn't the water just make you want to jump in?  Instead of buying a beach chair, we plopped ourselves under a palm tree.  I tweeted that our biggest stress of the day was deciding where to sit so that we wouldn't get knocked out by a falling coconut.

On Sunday night, we went to Formosa, my favorite bubble tea place.  They were out of bubbles!  So we tried their hielo fino {shaved ice}.  Imagine a creamy snow cone (probably made with evaporated milk) covered with fresh ripe mango and strawberries..  Delicious!

Hope your weekend was just as nice.  Happy Monday!
