Weekend Highlights

This weekend was absolutely everything--from the weather to the events, it was absolutely perfect!

My highlights this weekend included:

~Surviving my crazy parent meeting on Friday

~Celebrating with my coworkers with a after work drink

~Ordered dinner in and watched The Imitation Game with the hubs

~Attempted to go for a hike since the weather was so nice, but the line of cars to get in was outrageous, so no go

~Spent some time on our deck and took Cooper for a long walk

~Was over the moon excited when the Weekend of Girl Babies took place with THREE good blog friends giving birth to their beautiful baby girls over the weekend!!! (Congrats LynnJess and Jessi--so so so happy for you and your adorable little girls!)

~Made our way into DC and met up with Christy and Holly for a pre-dinner blate! (along with the boys)
Had such a fun time hanging out with these two and finally getting to meet Holly in person after so many years!

~MG and I made our way to our anniversary dinner at Grillfish where we had oysters, pecan crusted mahi-mahi and blackened swordfish, along with a delicious dessert and a bottle of wine--heaven!
(wore my wedding earrings and the bracelet MG gave me on our wedding day!)

~Cherry Blossoms in DC at night

~Exchanged gifts first thing in the morning--MG even researched the first anniversary "paper" gift and made sure, since his gift wasn't paper, that his card matched the wrapping paper, and that it was all in our wedding colors (purple and silver). That man...he's good.

~Chocolate chip pancakes made by the hubs for breakfast!

~Sunday morning errands

~Tried out Amanda's green drink recommendation--and it was delicious! Will definitely be making many more of these in the future!
(the flash went off which is why this looks neon green lol)
~Had my parents over to spend time together, and also got to celebrate the anniversary with them

~Watched our wedding video--so fun to re-watch and remember the whole day again

~Took a Pinterest-inspired 1st anniversary photo

~Cooked dinner together and then devoured our delicious anniversary cake!

~Snuggled on the couch and watched Game of Thrones before heading to bed for another work week!

All in all, it was a weekend full of so much exciting stuff like new babies, meeting blog friends, spending time with family, and getting to celebrate being married to my best friend for a year!
(thanks for taking such a good picture, Christy) ;)
1 year down, a lifetime to go! :)

I hope your weekend was spectacular, too!
