Weekend Highlights

Another week is here, but this one is my LAST one of the school year! Here's hoping it goes smoothly!

But, I wanted to share some of my weekend highlights first!
My highlights this weekend included:

~Friday date night with MG

~Installed the wall mount for the tv in the basement, and managed to carry that sucker down the flight of stairs without dropping it (thank goodness).

~Enjoyed the power recliner while MG mounted the sound bar

Cooper claimed his spot on the couch
~Did a little shopping at World Market and Home Goods to get some ideas for coffee/end tables.

~Found some super cute curtains for the basement

~Went to Mount Vernon with MG and my work bestie, her husband, sister and BIL for a night of exploring the grounds, getting to see the very seldom seen cellar of the house, all while enjoying beer tastings from several breweries around the area, and some yummy foods.
And a beautiful view:

(a huge win for the night was that my hair didn't go insane in the heat/humidity!)
George Washington's House
It was seriously so much fun to lay out a picnic blanket and some chairs, with friends and a few drinks, and watch the sun set over the water!

~Our new Wegmans opened up Sunday morning! (for those of you not familiar, it's an awesome grocery store chain that has been being built for well over a year and much anticipated--yes I get excited about grocery stores now #sorry20yearoldme)
~Sunday I headed to go see my parents for the morning and spend some time there checking in on them and catching up in person

~Met up with one of my besties, Trish, for lunch at a super yummy restaurant in a newly built up area thats close to my parents' house. Got to catch up over guac and blackened fish tacos--so much yum!

~Went to do a bit of shopping with MG once I got home, and got the most delicious coffee beverage along the way. The whipped cream was a guilty pleasure for the afternoon ;)

~Spent some more time in the basement space--Cooper enjoyed exploring....and blending in with the rug #camouflagecoop
~Learned not to check my work email over the weekend. #toomuchcrazy

~Had Chipotle for dinner, got in some reading, and watched the finale of Game of Thrones, which I think I'm going to stop watching...I can't handle it anymore.

And now I'm off to start the last week of the school year! I hope your weekend was fun and you're ready to take on the week :)
Linking up with these pretties today:

  6. Hooray for your last week! That is so awesome that Mount Vernon holds events like that - I seriously love that place and all its history. Oh, and don't feel bad about being excited about a grocery store - it's those things in life that generally excite me these days, too. :)

  12. Oh my gosh, after I watched Game of Thrones I thought the same thing. But I have to know what happens to my favorite characters....that are left! Bah! It was awful! Glad you had a great weekend other than the devastating finale. lol

  13. That view from Mount Vernon looks beautiful!

    I have so many thoughts on GoT that I couldn't sleep last night. There is no way "he" is really, truly gone. Maybe dead - but I think he has to come back in one way or another. That would be ridiculous if not. This season really tested me.

  15. That is seriously the hashtag I've read in a long time. It made me crack up because when I went to Trader Joe's this weekend I was thinking to myself how excited I was that they are finally down here and then I was like.....Amanda how far we have come......getting excited over grocery stores ;-) Those pictures looked so pretty from your weekend!
