Weekend Highlights

This weekend went by in a flash! It was pretty relaxing and low-key overall, but still had some fun stuff which made the weekend go by quickly.

My weekend highlights included:

~Friday afternoon massage

~Had these pretties arrive earlier than expected:
I'm debating getting the multi-colored ones (if they come back in stock), and, depending which ones I like better, maybe taking these ones back...decisions decisions
~Enjoyed the humidity-free weather on the deck with some afternoon reading (and talking on the phone with my bestie)

~Double date dinner with friends at a favorite restaurant of ours--got to catch up since it's been a while since we last got together with all of the busy summer schedules

~Wore this cute outfit and sported two items from my most recent Rocksbox:
~Saturday trip to Costco

~Took advantage of the nice weather an explored a little park by our house and did a nice walk/hike

~FaceTimed with a friend I haven't seen for a bit (but have dinner plans with next weekend)

~Got to put my anniversary gift to MG to use and drove into DC to see Book of Mormon at the Kennedy Center 
~Had a drink in the restaurant beforehand and enjoyed the view
~Laughed so hard at the show--I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it! We were laughing the whole time. And we had some pretty awesome seats!
~Slept past 8am the next morning, which is rare for me, but was so perfect

~Meal prepped for the week and ran errands

~Visited my dad in the hospital since he was admitted again to deal with his congestive heart failure--it seems to be helping, thankfully, and he looked a lot better when we saw him. I think our visit helped a bit too :)

~Gave the Coop-monster a bath and watched him go into crazy dog mode, running around the house super fast after he was done being dried off--so funny 
(and got some extra Cooper snuggles)
~Bought this cute jewelry stand, on sale, so I can finally organize my bracelets and watches 
~Read my newest book for a bit, did a little blog prep (especially for Jessi's and my link up next Wednesday--don't forget to link up with us!), and relaxed into Sunday evening

~MG made grilled chicken sandwiches on the grill along with some of the best corn on the cob I've had all summer! Perfect summer dinner--so yum!

~Ended the night with an ice cream sandwich
And magically had some extra company hanging around :)

All in all, it was a good weekend! I'm so glad I got that extra sleep this weekend, too, so I can gear up for the last week of summer school! 
Hope your weekend was awesome, too!
Linking up with these pretties today:

  9. Love those glitzy earrings and love even more when packages come earlier than expected! Hikes/walks are one of my favorites, especially on a beautiful day. You looked gorgeous for the date night and it looks like it was such a fun one. I have not had an ice cream sandwich in so long and you've got me really wanting one today.

  20. Glad to hear that you had a good weekend and I hope your dad gets better soon! The Book Of Mormon is such a great play to see, I have seen it twice and both times it had me in stitches. Nothing better than a massage, I totally could do with one after these past few weeks.
