A Memorial Day Weekend to Remember

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend (hopefully a long weekend)!  I know I enjoyed every last second of my four day weekend.  Is it bad that I am wishing it was still the weekend after four days off?  Nope.  Good.

I started my weekend off getting my hair done.  There is nothing I love more (ok maybe a few things) than getting pampered.  Especially when it comes to my hair.  The thing I don't love?  The payment at the end.  Or the fact that I was out of conditioner and had to buy new shampoo and conditioner for a cool $80.  Ouch.  Never feels good.  But this new shampoo and conditioner, I am in LOVE.

What do I love about these new products?  Not only do they smell like heaven, they are sulfate free, they don't weigh down my fine hair, UV radiation protection, protects against breakage and makes my hair silky soft.

Saturday was spent going to Graeagle, California.  We were scoping out our vacation digs for next month and a few other things.  It was a beautiful 81 degrees, no wind and pure heaven.  I can't wait to go back.  Is it June yet?

Saturday night, we went to see the Neighbors.  Let me just say, Zac Efron....HOT (though a little too young).  The movie was really funny.  Lots of alcohol, drugs, sex and shenanigans.  Let me just add....I don't find it appropriate to bring your six year old to this movie.  This happened with about four different families.  Not ok.

Sunday was our first trip to Lake Tahoe and Hidden Beach.  Amazing.

For once I really enjoyed a Monday.  We met up with our friends who were in town from Oregon plus a few others who joined us for lunch and cocktails.  I got to finally meet the cutest little man, Oscar and soak up some baby time.  It's been too long since I have had baby time and have seen his amazing parents, Brian and Melanie.  It makes us want to go to Portland stat.  And we just realized I have three free nights at a Marriott to use by January, so planning a trip is in the near future.

We spent the rest of Monday buying new shoes (for a wedding we are attending), tending to our garden and cooking dinner.  It was the perfect end to an amazing weekend.
 My peonies are finally blooming.  And we have the most gorgeous roses this year too.  I love Spring.

How was your Memorial Day weekend?
