Another weekend in the books and a long one at that. We were pretty busy even though we didn't have much planned.

I worked on Friday while Rory went snowboarding. To say that I was jealous is an understatement. The only redeeming part was the mountain had low visibility so it wasn't an epic day, but still a great day. Or so I heard. I did see the lines were insane and something I am glad I missed.

Friday afternoon we hung out with the girls and then I headed off at 5 pm to happy hour with Stacey. We hadn't caught up in awhile and it was so nice to have one on one time with one of my favorite ladies.

Saturday morning we hit up breakfast and lazied around the house most of the day. We did manage to do some cleaning. And take selfies.

Sunday morning we hit up breakfast again and then went to the mall to burn off some energy. The girls were getting a bit stir crazy being inside so much with all this crazy cold weather, so an outing was needed. We walked around the mall a bit, but mostly hung out at the play area. The girls were very shy at first, but opened up after 5 minutes and had the best time playing with the other kids there.

We soon headed home and put the girls down for a late nap. After the girls woke up, we played some more, did some reading and were just being goofy. At 4:30, my sister came over to watch the girls, so Rory and I could head out for a happy hour dinner to see Nathalie. She was only in town for a few days as it was a birthday gift from her husband. So thank you Nick for sending Nathalie our way. We had wine, many appetizers and the best conversation. Rory headed home at 7 so he could relieve my sister of babysitting duties, but I stayed until 9 pm.

Monday morning we made breakfast at home, did some cleaning and then headed out again. Cabin fever was at a high for the girls, so we decided to run some errands. We had things to return to Home Depot and Lowes from our renovation, so we did those and picked up a few things from Lowes. We were hungry for some lunch, so we hit up bbq. I was beyond stuffed after lunch, so we headed home for some naps, but not before stopping to get a Starbucks pick me up.

The girls napped and I headed to the grocery store to stock our near empty fridge. Then I took Walter for a walk. This was huge for me since I haven't been able to workout or go on walks since surgery, but now I can. I got home from the walk and not much later the girls woke up and wanted to go for a walk. So we bundled up and headed out again. It was the first time we had sunshine in over a week.

We got back in time to do a few things and then my in-laws headed over to hang out with the girls. Rory and I went to West Elm to cash in our rewards for some pillows, a dish for our soaps, sponges and things around the the sink. We also picked up a wine candle.

Then we headed out for sushi. I haven't had sushi in FOREVER and we tried a new place. It was really good. Like amazing. We were able to catch up and have a date night. So worth it. Then we snuck over to the outlets to look for some basketball shoes and anything else that peaked our interest. We got home at 7:30 and the girls were fast asleep. We watched some HGTV and then settled in for the Bachelor. Rory fell asleep midway through. I watched the whole thing and wow. So.Much.Drama.

Chef's special. Almost too pretty to eat.

And that was our weekend. How was yours?


  1. Oh my gosh - look at all those people ready to get up that mountain!! Sushi is my favorite - i eat it practically every week LOL!! Happy Tuesday girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. What a line at the Mountain! Crazy!

  3. I wish I knew how to snowboard. I tried it once and almost killed myself and have not gone back since! LOL! Sounds like a good weekend!

  4. Home Depot, Lowes, BBQ... our weekends had so much of the same ;) Though you had actual date nights - JELLY!! Little Man loves sushi so we take him when we go, but I always forget until we get the bill how expensive it is. We can all eat our own weight in raw fish, and it adds up, eeeks!

  5. YUM that sushi looks so good. Glad you got to have a date night! I have the bachelor on DVR-I am through some but can't wait to watch the rest!

  6. What a beautiful mountain view!

  7. What a great weekend. So glad you were able to get out! Hope you're starting to feel better! And, yum, sushi! I haven't had it in almost a year. I need to get on that.

  8. Holy cow that sushi looks so good! So glad you got a date night. Hope you are recovering well!

  9. SO MUCH DRAMA!!!! I cant believe how attracted Nick is to Corrine. UGHHHH.
    You had sunshine? SO it still exists? Glad to know.
    Those lines on the slopes. Nope. That would make me so glad alone to not have gone.

  10. Wow! Looks like a great weekend. I understand getting stir crazy. Glad you could get out and about for a bit.

  11. What a great weekend! Those ski lines look insane. I'd be glad you missed them! Love your hair curly. That is such a good picture!!

  12. We are so stir crazy here. Thankfully a warm of of some 40's is on the way!

  13. Holy moly at all of those people! We used to go skiing all the time and I don't think I've ever seen a line remotely that long to get back up. That is just crazy! I've never tried snowboarding, but I think I would stink at it... I'm not great at skiing either!
