Weekend Highlights

It's not only Monday, but it's my first day back to work for the new school year. Which means meetings, unpacking and setting up my office, scheduling a parent meeting (since I already had one asking for her kid to be evaluated--LAST WEEK!), etc etc etc. No more lounging and enjoying Summer, back to work!
Instead of dwelling on that, I'm gonna focus on the highlights from the weekend.

My weekend highlights included:

-MG's friend as a houseguest Friday night

-Friday night impromptu get together at our house with a bunch of MG's friends who hadn't seen the house yet

-Several bags of trash filled with beer bottles

-Girl time with the wife and girlfriend of two of the guys

-A rainy Saturday, with a trip to Kohls where I found these gems for my wardrobe and for our house decor:
Especially loving the white mirror (will look great once we paint that wall), and the love birds artwork will be an awesome anchor/focal point for the gallery wall I want to do in our living room!
-Saturday girls night dinner with my friend Jackie

-After-dinner wine at Circa

-picking up our guys after their fantasy football draft (we are now both officially fantasy football widows until the end of the football season)

-Sunday morning errands

-Hanging with my buddy Emily on her new patio
how sick is this fire pit area??
-Wine spritzers (and various other snackies)

-Having a doggy play date with our pups (Cooper is the small man in this relationship)

-Surprising MG's parents on their anniversary trip in NYC with a dinner reservation at  Del Frisco's and dinner on us

-Sunday dinner date with MG

-Early to bed, with the alarm set (boo!)

-Waking up for WORK....bye bye Summer Vacay!

I hope you had a relaxing pre-Labor Day weekend full of fun, relaxation or whatever your heart desired :)
