Weekending Highlights

Happy Monday and first day of February, friends! We're semi-melted out here in VA, but somehow still got a delay this morning--not a bad way to ease back into work after being off for 7 days.
{via}
We had a relaxing, but fun weekend--my highlights included:

~Attempted dinner at Cheesetique (was craving their mac and cheese), but the wait was too long, so we went for pizza instead at our favorite spot

~Stopped at Cheesetique to pick up two of our favorite cheeses for snacking--so yum!

~Had a low key night in, but stayed up to watch the Dateline special on Making a Murderer since they kept saying they had new info. They didn't. #liars

~Cleaned up the house Saturday morning from all of the snow and other crap that got tracked into the house; prepared for MG's best friend and fiance to visit

~Gave myself a mani with Essie's Bahama Mama

~Got a massage which was heavenly and much needed after all of that shoveling last week

~Gave Cooper a bath so he was nice and fluffy and smelled oh-so-nice

~Picked up our friends and headed to dinner at Virtue in Old Town; had some pre-dinner drinks at the bar and then ordered the amazing crab dip, and all got burgers. So good!

~Stopped for a photo op with all of the pretty lights
~Spent the night hanging out and catching up; always a good time when we're with these two!

~Sunday morning breakfast of blueberry pancakes, hash browns and bacon courtesy of MG

~Dropped our friends off and ran errands; we stopped at a Target we don't normally go to and saw the most beautiful display--I wanted everything
~Couldnt resist a new pillow for our downstairs couch and cute placements for our dining room table
~Went for a 4 mile walk around the neighborhood since it was in the 50s (you saw my excitement if you follow me on snapchat)...still a lot of snow around tho!
~Worked on our 1500 piece puzzle some more--getting so close!
~Thai food take out for dinner and the most gorgeous sunset
~Did some reading, and relaxed before getting back into "work mode" and watched Grease Live and Downton Abbey before bed!

What did you get into this weekend? Hopefully it was fun and relaxing!
Linking up with Biana and Meghan today for Weekending

  4. Sounds like the perfect weekend to me. I always enjoy getting together with old friends - especially ones we don't get to see very often. Cooper looks adorable as always. And girl, that Target display reins me in every time I walk in their door. I LOVE it there. You're placemats are too cute! I need a massage desperately - may need to look into that. Hope this week gets you back to normal and on track at work now that you're able to get out and about more and back into your routine. Have a great day! :)

  7. Clean puppies are the best! The Target home section is incredibly difficult to say no to, every time I walk by there I want to remodel/update every room in my house. Glad you had a nice weekend girl and that sunset is unreal.

  20. Wait, that display was at Target? I love it.

    I hope the six foot wall of snow at the end of my driveway melts today so I don't have to back into a parking space.

    I think Essie Bahama Mama was one of the first things I talked about with you! LOL

  21. I don't think your weekend could've been more perfect! And I'd get in tons of trouble in that Target! What a pretty display

  22. Sounds like a great weekend! I love the Target stores that have the fancy displays, so pretty.

  23. All the snow! I can't get over the fact that in the north y'all have snow everywhere and here in Texas we're enjoying sunny skies and 75 degree weather. It's basically Spring around these parts. Lets just hope its sticks around!

    Glad y'all had a great weekend! Good luck getting back in the swing of things at work!

  24. What a fun weekend. That display at Target is insane!!! I have never seen anything like it before. What did you think of Grease? I think it was one of the best live ones that have been on

    have a great week

  26. What an amazing sunset! It was such a beautiful day yesterday, even though it wasn't super warm.

  27. Never heard of Cheesetique before but I'm pretty sure I would love that place since I'm a huge fan of gourmet cheeses. It's probably my favorite snack. Looks like they do Sunday brunch too which could be yummy! Sounds like an amazing weekend and a fun night out with friends.

  28. So my husband and I finished the last episodes of making a murder and we were so excited to see the dateline from the other night as we had heard there was new information too, what a waste of time it was what we had already watched in the series! Nothing like a gorgeous sunset and a fabulous weekend. Here's hoping your week gets off to a great start as well!

  29. I'm dying to try Cheesetique! I've heard such good things! We have to take a trip to Sona in DC sometime! Looks like a perfect weekend to rest up and recover from your oh-so-hard week at work last week ;)

  30. Your weekend sounds relaxing and awesome!! And then you mentioned Thai food and it was all over for me... yum!! Seriously, your posts always give me food envy!!! Hope you have a great Monday!

  31. That Cheesetique place sounds absolutely amazing, but I pretty much love anything to do with cheese. I got a massage this weekend too, and it was so incredibly relaxing! Cooper looks so adorable all fluffed up, and it sounds like y'all had the best time with your friends!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Cooper is SO fluffy- hehe!! We worked on a puzzle over the weekend too- it's the perfect winter time activity! :)

  33. Target home section is seriously killing it lately!!! Swooning over the side tables and trays. do you think Steven Avery is guilty or innocent? I can't stop thinking about that show... So crazy!

  39. Seven days off from work sounds amazing! Well, minus the snow of course. I watched that Dateline special too & was thinking the exact same thing as you! I was a little bummed about it because I was looking forward to it all week, hah. That Target looks amazing! I want everything in that picture! Looks like you had a good weekend & hopefully all that snow melts soon!

  40. I'm glad the snow is melting there! We got about 25 inches and it's still sticking around and I am so tired of it! Bring on spring! :) Have a great week!
