Since Monday was a holiday, and yesterday started with MG's car being broken into, I just didn't have the energy to post yesterday, so I'm here today to recap my Memorial Day weekend with you all for What's Hap-"Pinning" Wednesday!
My weekend highlights included:
~getting out of work a bit early on Friday afternoon and having my Old Navy purchases arrive!
~A sushi date night out and movie in with MG on Friday night
~started the morning off early at Home Depot to look at tile for our downstairs bathroom and get a replacement light fixture for our hallway. Then we went to two more tile places. Because that's the kind of stuff you do on the weekends when you own a house lol
~an afternoon cookout at our friends' place with drinks and yummy food! (I brought my yummy feta dip which was a hit). I didn't have my phone with me so no pictures were taken.
~Had an impromptu meet up with our friends (who were also at the cook out) afterwards for some small plates and more time to catch up on a personal level at one of our favorite spots to go.
~Flaming cheese (saganaki) was ordered and devoured
(it may not look that great here but trust me, it's delicious!!)
~Sunday morning we decided not to go up to Philly as we had planned since we saw the hurricane was supposed to hit up there on Monday and didn't want to get stuck in all MDW traffic AND hurricane traffic so we scrapped the idea
~Did a 5 mile walk across the bridge from VA into MD by National Harbor. We almost made it the whole way into the harbor, but it was starting to get really hot so we turned around. Next time maybe!
~stopped by Lowes to look at their bathroom vanities and tile selections
~Picked up some flowers for our flower pot by our front door to brighten up the space a bit. Also, our rose bushes are taking off (the yellow one is catching up this week)!
~Had lunch with our friends and saw XMen which was pretty good--if you like the Xmen movies, you'll like this one I think!
~We decided to pick up these delicious jalapeno and Monterrey Jack cheese burgers from Harris Teeter (a grocery store by us) and have a little cook out at home
~Relaxed on the deck for a bit before the skies decided to open up
~MG was a trooper and was a dedicated grill master and we ended up having a really yummy dinner with home made fries and corn on the cob. And those burgers. Oh they are the best!
~And of course no weekend is complete without some Cooper snuggles!! :)
That was it for my long weekend! And right now, as you read this, we are getting the new windows installed in our house...FINALLY!!! (after only taking over 2 months to get done).
Now it's your turn to link up with Jessi and I to share what's hap-"pinning" with you!
