Weekend Highlights (so far)

Happy Monday, everyone--and I really mean it because this Monday there's no alarms waking us up and no work! It's amazing what that extra day of the weekend does for your soul!

This weekend has been great so far. My weekend highlights included:

~Friday dinner and a movie date night with MG to see Avengers

~Watched an amazing episode of Vice about new cures for cancer (highly recommend the docu-series on HBO!)

~Woke up to a beautiful morning on Saturday--perfect for getting chores done in and around the house

~Freshly washed cars courtesy of the hubs

~Went furniture shopping for the basement

~Made plans for a summer beach vacay! 

~Bought a 65" tv and sound bar for the basement (holy crap it's awesome!)

~Cook out at our friends Dave and Emily's place where there was all kinds of delicious food and drink, including this cute flag made of short cake and berries (part way eaten)
~Sunday morning errands

~Lunch double date with my friend Natalie and her husband where I tried Indian food for the first time (it was yummy!)
~More furniture shopping where MG and I finally settled on a nice long power-reclining couch and a side chair (omg this couch is sooooo comfy!)
it comfortably seats 4, even though it only looks like two in this photo
~Homemade tacos, dining al fresco
~Relaxing night in on the couch

And today we're getting the floors installed in the basement! I am so excited to see it all come together!!

Now that I look back, I took a lot of pictures of food this weekend (and furniture, but you don't want to see everything we looked at). 
I'm so glad that we have today to enjoy...and at the end of it, our downstairs space is going to be totally transformed!

I hope your Memorial Day weekend has been awesome, too!
Linking up with these pretties today:

  3. Hold the phone - you never had Indian food before?! OMG. I'm glad you liked it. We should go to the Indian buffet in Rockville so you can taste everything! 65 inch tv is Huge! Jealous ;). We got a soundbar a couple weeks ago and it changed my world! I can actually hear now when people start whispering on the shows (like scandal)
