Weekending Highlights

Happy Monday friends! I hope you're all rested up and ready to take on another week! Ours involved a lot of yummy food, some new clothes, and a visit with my in-laws! :)
{via}
My weekend highlights included:
~Friday lunch date with work friends after our morning training (love teacher work days!)
~Happy Hour with 3 friends that ended up being a happy FOUR hours
~Low key night in with MG

~Finalized our big summer trip plans and all of the hotel details (more on that in the next couple days!)

~an unexpectedly rainy start to Saturday morning

~went to the mall to look for a few things for MG and I hit up Loft because...well, Loft. I found this gem of a dress and was able to get it with a gift card I had. Love it!
~Since we were at the mall that has the restaurant with my favorite lobster bisque, we had a little lunch date and devoured that bisque!
~a visit from my in-laws in the afternoon followed by a yummy dinner out in DC at Del Frisco's Grille. Highlights: the truffle mac and cheese, the steak (and I'm not a huge steak fan), and the yummy potato cakes. I had parmesan crusted sole which was really tasty too. So much good food!

~a short walk around--got to see the Capital 
~Back to the house to nurse our food comas where I may have fallen asleep on the couch before 10:30. Ok, I did. :)

~Sunday morning MG's dad helped us fix the outside light for our deck so now we can see at night when we grill again (and because of that, we got to cancel the electrician coming on Tuesday--yay for escaping that hassle!)

~Went shopping at the outlets and picked up some adorable navy patterned shorts at J Crew, and a comfy yoga jacket top at Under Armor
(and then I got the orange tank top too after the sales woman told me it would go well with the shorts and it did)
~Took Cooper for a long walk since the weather was gorgeous

~Ran errands late in the day after my in-laws left to head back home

~Learned that inlinkz changed something (still not sure what) and now my recipes and book pages don't work on my blog anymore #angryemoji

~grilled up some burgers and corn on the cob for dinner

~did a little bit more research on some things to do on our summer trip #icantwait

~relaxed for the night and caught the first episode of Game of Thrones before heading to bed

That was about it for us this weekend. Not too crazy, but definitely got some cute clothes and some yummy food!
Hoping yours was fabulous, too!!
