Weekending Highlights

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Despite the crummy weather, mine was pretty good!
{via}
My weekend highlights included:

~Friday date night with MG to Bonefish where I ordered some yummy bang bang shrimp tacos, and we splurged on the pumpkin creme brûlée dessert (usually not a huge pumpkin consistency fan, but this was super delish!)
~Finished the last couple episodes of Homeland's last season

~Saturday morning of coffee, Cooper snuggles and blankets since we hadn't turned on the heat yet (but were forced to when it was 62 in the house)
~Returned some things to Loft, and then got this super comfy and cute cardigan from Target with the leftovers of a gift card (cost me $1.90 out of pocket!). Thanks for the rec, Amanda!
~Saw The Martian with MG, my good friend from work and her husband--it was very good, and really well done...the reclining seats didn't hurt the experience either :)
~Had dinner at the Wegman's Pub with our friends afterwards--the burgers were mega delicious!

~Sunday morning started early with Cooper whimpering and acting odd--got up at 7 and took him out where he threw up. Not a great start to his birthday. :(

~Ran errands which began with a stop at Starbucks for my first PSL of the season!
~Cooper got a birthday bath before getting his birthday presents (and was luckily feeling better than he had that morning)
~Did a little vacuuming around the house, and lit some Fall candles
~bought some cute Fall decor online--can't wait for it to arrive!
~Went to a local bar to watch the Skins-Eagles game which is our fun, inter-house rivalry (my team won :)
~read more of The Royal We--seriously loving this book

~Had a light, low-key dinner at home

~watched the first episode of The Good Wife (first time watching it as the season airs instead  of binge-watching episode after episode)

~Off to bed to rest up for another week ahead!

I hope your weekend had nicer weather than we did here, and was filled with fun!

  4. We have the same inter-house rivalry. My husband's family all root for the Eagles but we are Redskins. I'm sure once we have children I'll be the minority in the house… Glad to hear cooper felt better in time to enjoy the day!

  17. Amanda's snaps made me want that cardigan, too! If the rain ever stops I might have to make a Target run for it.
    Hope Cooper keeps feeling better!
