Spring Weekending Snaps

Happy Spring! I hope it actually feels like Spring where you are, unlike here in NoVa where the first day of Spring had a high of 45 for the day, was overcast and snow flurries in the forecast! #gohomespringyouredrunk
This weekend was pretty low key for me since MG was out of town at a Bachelor party, and lots of friends started their trips and vacations for Spring Break. The restful weekend was actually really nice, and gave me some time to just relax and be by myself.

My weekend highlights included:

~Celebrating the start of Spring Break with a little personal sized champs and pretty weather
~These yummy treats that my coworker brought in to work for me on Friday (they were so pretty I felt bad eating them....but that didn't stop me haha). I haven't eaten them all....yet.
~A relaxing night in catching up on all of my DVR shows, including RHOBH which I'd fallen asleep during last week (oops), and a super long, highly entertaining text convo with Brittany

~Saturday morning coffee date with my friend Lisa
~Watched The Best of Me with hottie James Marsden. It was good, but I wasn't expecting the ending. I also didn't mind all of the shots of James Marden in his tank tops #drool
~Lots of puppy cuddles
~An hour long phone convo/catch up with my bestie. Love that I get to see her next weekend!

~Watched our wedding video because I just wanted to see my dad, and I kind of wanted to do it while I was home alone

~Pizza and cheesy bread for dinner because it was mega rainy gross out and super cold and I didn't want to leave the house. And just because pizza:)
~Watched How to Train Your Dragon 2 which was still just as cute as the first one. I love Toothless!

~More puppy snuggles. Love me some Coop.
is there anything better??
~Funny texts from my husband. One of which included a text that they caught a "cab" on the way back from the casinos which ended up being a limo...only cost them $30 haha

~Seeing this incredibly beautiful painting that our friend painted. I told him we want one! :)
I'm so in awe of how talented he is and I'm obsessed with this painting!

~Waking up Sunday to 30 degree weather but thankfully no snow on the ground. I wouldn't be surprised if this was our forecast (saw this on Facebook):
~Did some laundry, and cleaned around the house, then ran errands for the week once MG got back home to kisses and tail wags (Ill let you figure out which ones I gave and which ones Coop gave :)

~Did some meditation with a new app I discovered, which was really calming and pretty incredible

~Started reading a new book thanks to Stephanie's recommendation the other week on her Show Us Your Books post (thanks, Steph!)

~Had a little sushi dinner with MG followed by finishing House of Cards before heading to bed. Oh my word, did the season end well!

And today I have a day date with my friend--lunch and shopping are on the docket and I can't wait! 
Hope your weekend was just what you needed!

  6. Sounds like a pretty good weekend to me! With it being so cold and damp, staying in and catching up was a must.

    I'm glad you got to watch your wedding video and see your dad. I regret not getting a videographer, but for a variety of reasons, we didn't. I also regret not having more videos of my mom when she was alive. I guess that what dreams are for; and she visits a lot!

  7. Yay for Spring Break! I loved our super hilarious text convo on Friday; totally had me rolling! ;) I'm thinking I'm going to need to watch that movie…you're right, why is he still SO HOT?! And um, pizza, sushi, champs and wine all sound like the perfect meals/drinks to me! Enjoy hubs being home and your fun lunch today!

  12. I took a meditation class in grad school and sometimes when I'm super stressed out I go back to those principles. Which app is it? Puppy snuggles make everything better!

  13. Sounds like just the weekend you needed. Glad you got to see your daddy and get some puppy snuggles. xoxo

  14. Wow those cookies really are almost too pretty to eat..almost ;)

  15. Sounds like it was a good weekend. I totally get watching your wedding video alone, I'm sure it was very emotional for you. Sometimes being alone with our emotions is very comforting. Your father is forever in your heart even though you cannot see him. Snuggling with cooper sounds wonderful.

  18. Ooh, which book?

    This weekend's weather was pitiful for spring. PITIFUL!

    I hope you have a fabulous week off.

  19. Which meditation app do you use? I've tried a few before and haven't really stumbled upon one I really like yet. Oregon's spring is drunk and needs to go home too... we had some sun Saturday and then hail/wind/sleet again Sunday. Sigh. Have a great week off this week!

  26. Oh, I forgot about The Best of Me! I read the book a while back, but I totally forgot that they had made it into a movie! I need to put this in my Netflix list!

    I hope you enjoy your week!

  29. omg at that weather meme-- so true though! I was going to say your mini champs were so cute, but then I saw the cookies and they were SO cute, what a fun treat. Glad you had a nice relaxing weekend!

  30. I still have 4 episodes of House of Cards left, but this season is so much better than last! I've been told the last 4 episodes are the best so woo hoo!

    Glad you had a good weekend! Alone time is always nice! Oh and I liked the book The Best of Me better than the movie. I just didn't by the adult versions of the young couple the cast. Even though you're right James Marsden is still a total hottie! lol

  31. Glad that your spring break is off to a good start! Sometimes a weekend to yourself is the best - you can do whatever you want and not have to worry about your husband. :)

  32. Glad you had a nice relaxing weekend! PS - email me your Snapchat name!

  33. Yes, yes, what a great weekend! I really liked The Best of Me but those movies never end "right"! Your Domino's has me craving pizza for dinner now ;)

  34. It sounds like you had the perfect start to your Spring Break and got lots of catching up done with your DVR! We still haven't started watching the newest season of House of Cards, but hopefully we'll be able to watch it soon! I hope you enjoy the rest of your Spring Break!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sounds like a great weekend! Rainy days make for some nice relaxing and pizza always!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Your weekend sounds heavenly. I always order pizza while my husband is out of town. It's the best ritual made even sweeter because he has diabetes and doesn't eat pizza so I never get to have it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You had the perfect weekend. Champagne, pizza, House of Cards, sushi and puppy cuddles. Sounds amazing. I can't wait to finish House of Cards now. Awe.

  38. I love your personal champs bottle for yourself! And what is your snapchat name?!? I love treating myself to a pizza all to myself when Derek is away - you are a girl after my own heart! Hope spring break is off to a great start!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So much good food!! Sushi, pizza, personal bottle of champs.. yes, please! Glad to hear HOC ends well, we only have a couple more episodes to go! Hope your week is off to a great start!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I watched Best of Me this weekend too and was surprised at the ending too, it was a cute movie and totally loved James Marsden in those tanks! Personal champs and pizza, sounds like a great idea for "me" time! I need to work on finishing HoC!! Enjoy the rest of your spring break girl!

  41. Our weather in Colorado is the same. 70 today and 30 by Thursday. I want a pedicure but I'll probably have to go on a cold day in order to be ready for the warm days.
    No shame in pizza...and dreary weather is a great excuse to stay in.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It sounds like it was a very nice and relaxing weekend!

    I watched The Best of Me for the first time recently and I totally didn't expect that ending either. I cried. =X

    I hope you have a great week!

  43. this is the second time i have read 'on the docket' in a blog post today and i am super intrigued. we actually call receipts dockets so i am definitely interested haha.
    omg the best of me. i think i read the book years ago but had forgotten the ending and it about killed me. james marsden is so pretty though. and yum, pizza! i totally do that when i'm home alone, no shame in my game.

  44. Love low key weekends like these! I feel like we've been going nonstop lately and I need some down time! Those cookies are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  45. LOL! Dragons! That's how I feel over here in Michigan! We're supposed to be getting snow and freezing rain starting tomorrow!? What?! Ok. Whatever weather.

    I read The Best of Me, but it I can't remember what happens. I read it after having a baby. Ha! Shows how my brain was working! Yikes! I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Haha!

    Have a great week! Happy Tuesday!
