Weekending Highlights

Happy Monday, lovies! This weekend flew by super fast, but it was both fun and productive, so a total win!
{via}
My weekend highlights included:

~Getting to wear my Loft poncho to dinner on Friday
~pre-dinner drinks at Brasserrie Beck

~Double date dinner in DC at ToroToro, a Latin-inspired restaurant with our friends. Ended up being at dinner for 3 hours just eating and chatting--I love nights like that!
~On the menu: their delicious cheese bread, scallops, smoked guac, mushroom flatbread, oysters, crispy shrimp, and wine. Lots of wine.

~Had my Old Navy shipment arrive and loved every single thing in it except the white puffy vest

~Got an early Xmas present from my mom: ceramic pots and pans which are amazing to cook with! Totally doesn't stick at all, heats up fast, and a breeze to clean! If you're in the market for a set, these are fabulous!

~Saturday holiday shopping at one of the super malls near us--MG made out well with a couple of the stops, and even helped me try and find a new holiday dress (and picked out a sherpa vest, all on his own, for me to try--that guy is a good one, I tell ya!)

~Found one that I liked, but had a weird seam around the chest area that I didn't love, so I didn't get it
~Had lobster bisque for lunch (at the same place I had it for dinner a couple weekends ago)...so damn delicious!

~Got a new pair of glittens (glove-mittens) at Urban Outfitters--these are one of my favorite cold weather accessories! Mine are similar to these

~afternoon hour-long massage with MG at Massage Envy. Heaven.

~made burgers at home for dinner and watched part of the first season of The Affair

~Slept for almost 10 hours

~Sunday errands, wearing the most comfy tunic sweater ever (from Old Navy)--I highly recommend it if you haven't gotten one (get it here--I would live in this sweater if I could...and kinda want to get it in several colors)

~Got our Christmas card list together, envelopes printed, stuffed, stamped, sealed and mailed! Whoop!

~Sunday afternoon 3.6 mile hike with MG

~A cotton candy sunset sky #nofilter

~Pizza for dinner from &pizza (so so so good!) and relaxing on the couch 

It was all a good mix of fun and productivity--plus some delicious food! Hopefully your weekend was equally as relaxing and productive!
Linking up with these pretties today:

  2. We got our cards sent out too with those same gingerbread stamps! Also, you look totally amazing in that dress! I didn't even notice the seam until you mentioned it. Oh and btw aren't the heated tables at massage envy the best?

  4. Sounds like a great weekend, your double date on Friday looks like so much fun! Eating and drinking with good company is the best! I tried that tunic from ON and wanted to like it since it was so comfortable but it just didn't fit me right at all. It looks great on you!

  8. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend! Love the poncho, too cute! And my friend tried on that same dress at Macy's and had the same problem. So weird! That ON sweater is too cute, I think I'm going to have to get it! Happy Monday love! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  11. Cute poncho! Waiting for my cards to arrive! I'll mail them out as soon as I get them! I have similar mittens from Primark, so cute and they go with everything! I think I tried that white puffy vest from old navy, didn't work for me either!

  12. Love the tunic and your poncho. The dress is gorgeous, but again I can't see the seam. The gold looks so good on you as does winter white. I have a gorgeous winter white dress I wish I could just run over and let you borrow! Love ceramic pots and pans! They are often better than my super expensive copper bottoms ones. xoxo have a good week.

  14. I somehow still haven't tried &Pizza even though they are popping up everywhere now and everyone always raves about it-- yours look sooo good! I love the cream and gold dress, but booo for weird seams- it still looks amazing on you! And I'm going to check out that ON sweater right now- it is so cute!

  21. What a great weekend. I love the print on that dress, very pretty. Also, the pizza looks amazing.

  22. Your weekend sounds so wonderful! Funny you mentioned not liking your white puffy vest from Old Navy... I had one too and I didn't like mine either. the down (or fake down, whatever it was) shifted around inside and make weird lumps. I accidentally left that vest in a hotel room a few weeks ago when my husband and I were away and when I realized I had left it there... I wasn't all that mad. :-) Did yours do the same thing with the weird lumps?

  23. It's chilly and rainy here today and lobster bisque sounds amazing. I need some soup stat. I love that Old Navy tunic - it looks so comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That dress could seriously fall into the is-it-gold-and-white-or-black-and-blue camp but I seriously love it. Your weekend sounds AMAZING.

  25. You are the absolute cutest and look fab in everything my dear (including that dress you didn't get!!) Glad ya'll had a great weekend! xo

    ReplyDelete
  26. Looks like a perfect weekend! I want a pair of those glittens, so cute!

  27. A productive weekend in my book would've been successfully getting Christmas cards out the door, but you definitely did way more than that! That sunset was gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've never cooked with ceramic pans before but they sound amazing. I haven't had lobster bisque in forever but it's one of my faves. The holiday dress looks great on you....too bad the seam was wonky! I went shopping for a holiday dress yesterday and found one at Kohl's on the sale rack for $14.50. Score!

  29. I am in love with that poncho you wore, so pretty!

  30. Looks like you got a bunch of stuff done over the weekend, long dinners with friends are the best! I love that dress on you girl, hate when cute stuff have weird seams that don't make it work.

  31. Christmas cards are the best...and an hour long massage...amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love that Loft poncho! So cute! That lobster bisque sounds amazing right about now!

  33. You go girl - getting your Christmas cards out! We slacked off and didn't do any this year! I am loving the poncho and tunic you sported this weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow, I haven't seen a cotton candy sky like that in a while; so pretty. I am stalking that Old Navy pullover sweater now - it looks like it could go with a lot in your picture.

  35. All your new clothes are so cute! I love those gloves. I bet those ceramic pots are super nice too! I've never cooked with them before but I've heard really good things :)

  37. Dang girl those pots and pans… SO JEALOUS!! Love that poncho and that dress. I have been searching everywhere for a dress for graduation. It's like when you really need one you can't find one but when you don't need one you like every single one you see haha

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm such a sucker for sunset pictures! Sounds like you had a great weekend! Xo

  39. I'm fairly certain that this post is a description of my ideal weekend. and also, that poncho is two thumbs up! I'm starting to get into ponchos this year and I don't think I'll ever go back. they're the comfiest clothing item ever invented.

  40. Reading your last weekend post almost in time for this weekend's! LOL

    I frequently purchase things I like in numerous colors.

    Woo hoo for new pots & pans! I might need to buy some for the shore next year. I'm iffy on what's down there.
