Best Weekend to Kick off Summer

I had the best weekend to kick off the start of summer and being done with work! MG came home from his work trip early, so we caught up, and then made dinner plans with our couple friends. None of us really knew where we wanted to go but all settled on Ray's the Third. If you're in the DC area, you've heard of Ray's Hellburger, and Ray's the Steaks. Ray's the Third is a steak/burger type of place near the other two places and the food is bangin'! It's one of those places that's kind of hidden, but well worth the find when you get there.
I saw lobster mac and cheese on the menu and HAD to order it, while the other three got an amazing cut of steak. We had a fun waiter and the food and wine were awesome. Overall, it couldn't have worked out better!

The rest of the weekend involved more stuff revolving around moving into the condo, and then some time at the pool because the weather this weekend was absolutely incredible! 

We had dinner with another couple friend of ours randomly on Saturday night which was nice cuz they're in the middle of planning their wedding so we haven't had a chance to see them as much lately. During that dinner, plans to have a Girl's Night to see Magic Mike were made....yesssss....

MG and I also tackled building a storage cabinet together, called our dad's for Father's Day, and ran some errands to prepare for our trip to the beach this Wednesday--can't wait!!

Overall, it was a weekend with great weather, lots of time with friends, and spending time together as a couple that "lives together" (hehe). All of which made this weekend the perfect start to my summer vacation!

To top it off, I got to have breakfast with one of my friends from grad school, and her adorable son. I couldn't have asked for a better last couple of days!
Now, time to focus on what to bring for a week at the beach! :)

Happy Monday!
