Weekend Highlights

This weekend went by in a blur--I can't believe it's already Monday! Luckily this weekend gave me lots of fun stuff to get me through the Monday morning blues.

My weekend highlights included:

-Friday night 'dinner party' with our friends Mike and Wendy.

-MG made grilled pizzas (soooooo yum!)

-I made my feta dip (always a huge hit), and have determined that The Perfect Pita makes the absolute best hummus ever (and eating it with cucumber slices is perfect)

-Getting to put some wedding gifts to use:

-Our brother-in-law staying for the night, on his way to get their new puppy

-Saturday errands

-Cuddling on the couch with Coop

-getting in some good quality time with my Kindle

-Dinner out  at Cava with our new friends who rented our house before we bought it

-Flaming cheese (if you've never had it, you need to!)
mmmm my mouth is watering just looking at it :)
-An encounter with 2 drunk guys, one of whom fell over in the middle of the street....twice. On his own.

-After dinner drinks at Circa

-Sleeping in on Sunday (and sleeping for 10 hours! I never do that!)

-The most perfect weather on Sunday

-Watching the first games of the season at a friend's birthday party/football get-together (too bad my Skins lost, but at least the Cowgirls did too!)
At least one of us has a winning team!
-Pics and videos of the new puppy, Burton, along with some FaceTime sessions. (He's pretty much the cutest thing ever!)

 I'm super excited today, too, that I'm the featured blogger over at Monday Morning Gossip!!!
