Rainy Weekending Snaps

Happy May, friends! Our weekend was pretty much overcast and rained out, so pretty low key, but we still managed to squeeze some fun in between the rain drops!
My weekend highlights included:

~Friday night pizza date with MG at our favorite spot
Love seeing the new pizza box art work that's up every time we go!
~a post-dinner coffee date followed by a quiet night in (and thanks to the coffee I didn't fall asleep on the couch like I normally do haha)

~Did some cleaning around the house Saturday morning followed by an errand to Lowe's

~Took an unplanned last minute trip to one of our favorite furniture stores in the area to browse
Love this place!

~Gave myself a mani in a light grey Essie color ("Cocktail Bling"), but wasn't feeling it, so the next day I traded it out for Essie's Flowerista which is much more Springy
~Headed over to our friends' place for a cook out. Never thought on the last day of April I'd be wearing my Uggs, but alas Mother Nature decided Spring wasn't ready to come around fully just yet after all.

~Had these yummy cucumber infused watermelon martinis that were to die for delicious
~Spent most of the night inside because it started to rain...of course. And then called it a night around 11. (didn't get any snaps of the food but there was plenty and it was delicious!)

~Started Sunday off with more pouring rain, but strawberry pancakes helped to brighten the morning
~Ran errands for the week while trying not to get soaked

~Spent lots of lazy time inside coloring, watching tv, and cuddling with Coop

~We drove to have dinner with my mom for an early Mother's Day since we have a wedding out of town next weekend
~Had a pretty low key rest of Sunday evening before heading to bed for the week

It kind of stinks that we would be leaving for Aruba in 2 days time, especially since the highs for this week are in the low 60s, with rain in the forecast every single day. Been seeing the photos of our friends who are in Aruba and it's kind of torture. Wah!
Hopefully your weekend wasn't as washed out as ours was!

  12. I feel like it's never going to stop raining/stop being gloomy outside! That pizza box art is so cool and pizza sounds so good now! The furniture store looks awesome-- where is it? Flowerista is such a pretty color- I haven't painted my nails in a while and need to change that soon.

  20. YUM, I love a good pizza place- that one looks great! Both of those nail polish colors are super cute, but definitely loving the more spring-y one now :) We have had SO MUCH rain and hail and everything in between- hoping this week we can catch a break from it.

  21. We were supposed to get a lot of rain this weekend, but luckily we only got a few showers kind of on and off the whole weekend. It sounds like y'all made the best of the terrible weather, and still had the chance to see some friends and do some shopping. Just think about how jealous all of your friends in Aruba are going to be when you're in Greece later on this year :)

  22. Oh my word, a cucumber watermelon martini sounds like perfection. Watermelon is my favorite fruity flavor so I would have been all over that! And coloring? A girl after my own heart! Sounds like we need to hang out sometime! And I mean that in a completely non-creeper kind of way. Lol.

  23. Sorry you guys had a ton of rain!!! Even though coloring inside while it's raining out sounds like a little bit of heaven to me!

  24. Even though the weather sucks (New England, get with it!!), it still sounds like y'all had a good weekend :)

  26. Pizza box art....too cool! And if you can bring me one of those martini's that would be greattttt ;) haha, hope your weeks is a good one!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mmmm that martini sounds so refreshing! And I'm loving the pizza box art, how fun and quirky!

  28. Love the Flowerista nail color...so much prettier for Spring although I'm sorry to hear Spring hasn't quite hit for you. The weather has been so weird and unpredictable this year.

  29. That martini sounds delicious! Loving the nail colors. I really need to paint mine like yesterday...

  30. I love the rain, but living in Washington, you kind of get tired of it after the 7th month. But I hope that your rain stops soon and you can enjoy some 75-80 degree weather like we are! Ooh great choice on the second color for your manicure. Definitely a love spring color. I'm jealous because I can't paint my nails. Can't have nail polish in the bakery as it can chip off into food. We wear gloves, but they rip.

  31. Sounds like a nice, low-key weekend! Sometimes, those rainy-day weekends are the best. And I LOVE that new nail color! Perfect for spring!

  40. I really like both nails colors, but I could see how you wanted to go more 'spring.' That furniture store looks really cool. We have this placed called At Home and it has everything you could ever dream up. It's HUGE and has everything you could ever need for your home.
