Weekend Highlights

The first weekend of Spring was a great one! We finally got some pretty weather on Saturday and Sunday at least and some sunshine!

This weekend's highlights included:

~Another rough end to the work week, where I debated drinking this whole bottle of wine when I got home
I didn't, but I thought about it!
~Instead, I had a Friday date night with MG (where only one glass of wine was consumed) :)

~Enjoyed the beautiful Saturday Spring weather

~Tried on my pretty Loft purchases that arrived on Friday
 

~Did a Piyo workout (and my legs are still sore!)

~We took Cooper for a long walk

~Decided on a plan for what to do with our basement fireplace. Hopefully after we get the floors done, this will be the focal point in our basement family room:
(Isn't it beautiful???)
~Finished my book on my Kindle and did a little Us Weekly reading
Lily James is FLAWLESS!
~Had a double date dinner with our couple friends

~Gorged on apps, wine and more food--so so good!

~Took a stroll through the streets of Old Town after dinner
~Sunday errands

~We went to lunch with my couple friends from work and had the favorite buffalo chicken wrap with homemade blue cheese dressing. So yum!

~We visited my dad in the hospital--he looked much better, and said he was feeling the best he has felt since everything happened. I was so glad that we got to see him.

~Had a low key rest of the night on the couch with my two guys

All in all, things seem to be settling down a bit after the craziness of last week. My dad's looking and feeling better, and MG's feeling better. Despite some work stresses, we've got great friends around us to have fun and unwind with. Overall, it was a great weekend and just what I needed!

I hope your weekend was everything you needed, too!

  7. Glad to hear that your dad is looking/doing better. My friend told me awhile ago to try that wine, I don't like red, I might have to buy a bottle for when she's here this weekend & finally try it.

  14. Sometimes you just need a “drink an entire wine bottle” night! But one glass is better too; especially for enjoying the next day! Glad your dad is feeling better! Cooper is too cute; love all your activities with him this weekend! All your events out look like so much fun!

  17. You have so much more luck at Loft than I do! Their clothes just doesn't fit me right! I needed a "drink the bottle night" this weekend too. Sadly, it was more like "drink half a glass" because that was all I had left and didn't want to open a new bottle! I'm glad to hear your dad is doing better!
