Weekending Highlights

How has another weekend come and gone? I'm seriously convinced that time is set on warp-speed ahead!
Part of which was probably the case because our weekend definitely was full of stuff, with some relaxation mixed in, too!

My weekend highlights included:

~Almost getting killed by a MetroBus on my drive home from work (I had a full on panic attack when I got home while I called Metro to tell them about what happened--so freaking scary!)

~Friday date night dinner with MG

~Going to my two friends' (who are sisters) birthday party where they had the entire top floor of the bar/lounge area--was super fun and great to catch up with and celebrate the birthday girls!

~Out past midnight (it's been a while since that happened)

~Rainy Saturday errands: Costco (where we ran into our friends we hung out with last weekend), Benjamin Moore and Home Depot

~Watched 4 episodes of Master of None, the new Aziz Ansari show on Netflix which was pretty funny--perfect for a rainy day

~Had dinner plans with a couple friend of ours in DC, but the girl came down with a cold, so we changed plans and went for Mexican food instead #nomnomnom So good!

~Had the perfect Fall evening: rented a movie, started a fire, had some red wine and cuddled on the couch with MG and Coop
~Sunday morning finally felt like Fall had arrived!

~Sunday house project: repainting the outside of the front door (which had been painted crappily by the previous owners). Looks much better now!
MG's painting clothes just happened to go with the blue door theme lol
~Got the deck furniture covered and put away until Spring

~Watched some football

~Went for a 3 mile walk with MG to take advantage of the pretty Fall day and get in some exercise; snapped some pretty pics along the way
~MG made home made burgers and home made fries for dinner (so so so good!)

~Purchased this beauty on a ridiculous discount, thanks to the Bloomie's sale and Amanda for informing me about it
{via} Early X-mas present to me?? :)
~got in a little reading time with my current book, watched a little tv, relaxed and rested up for another week!

I hope your weekend was full of beautiful Fall weather, friends and fun!

  1. Oh my goodness, that is NOT cool about the Metro bus!! Sometimes I think bus/truck drivers think they own the road. Semis blow through snowy roads like it's 80 degrees up here and cause terrible accidents because of it. So stupid. I'm glad you're OK though!!! Fall finally arrived here too! I'm glad you got to take advantage of that with a nice walk and cuddling by the fire :) Happy Monday!!

  5. Glad you weren't hit by the bus, so scary! Buses drive insane sometimes I once saw one take out a motorcycle while I was waiting at the red light. Thankfully everyone was okay but it was so scary to see! The rest of the weekend looks wonderful!

  7. Your walk that you went looks absolutely gorgeous and a great way to catch the last little bits of fall! And your movie, fire, wine and cuddle time evening sounds sounds absolutely perfect! I'm hoping the weather in Texas gets cooler (and stays that way) soon so we can light a fire too!

  13. Love your new bag!! It's so pretty! Sorry to hear that you almost got hit by a bus, I can only imagine how scary that must have been! Some bus drivers are so reckless. They have no regard for anyone.

  19. I watched Master of None this weekend too. I thought it was hilarious. I didn't see the first few episodes because my friends were already a few in when I showed up but we finished the season. I have been craving good Mexican food.

  28. I can't believe we are already in the 2nd week of November, time is definitely flying and FAST. LOVE the cute new bag and the color is wonderful for the Fall/Winter. Sorry about the "almost" Metro bus catastrophe, but so happy you were okay. Have a great week! :)

  29. Well, I'm glad that you're still alive after the bus incident! I swear those city bus drivers have no clue what they're doing most of the time - I always felt like I was going to die when we still lived in the city in Iowa. Looks like you had a beautiful weekend weather wise, too! Good for you for taking advantage of it. Love the front door color!
