Weekend Things

Lookie what came in the mail on Friday!

That would be RSVP cards and an invitation to my own bridal shower!  Eeeee!

We met with our photographer after work on Friday to go over our day of timeline for the wedding.  I’ll be honest, I’ve been agonizing over that timeline for months WAY TOO LONG.  I mean it’s an incredibly important day and I just wanted to be proactive about setting it up perfectly.  #ControlFreak

Anyways, it all paid off when our photographer was totally impressed by how prepared we were.  As uptight as I was about the timeline, I trust our photographer so much that I have no specific photography requests.  She’s the pro so I’ll just let her do her thing 🙂

On Saturday morning, I had a facial followed by a massage.  Rough life, right?  I scheduled a few of both of those things for the next two months.  Ya know, to keep myself relaxed.  I think it definitely worked on Saturday.  In between appointments, I had some time to kill so I walked five minutes to my old neighborhood and strolled the street I grew up on.  It was so weird looking at the old house and knowing someone else lived inside.  Sigh, I miss it.

Post facial/massage lunch was picked up at Alfalfa’s.  The salad I put together was just alright but that Upstart Kombucha was delicious.  Even Joey thought so.

Later, we brewed Root Beer!  Cool, huh?  In a perfect world, we would have cooked up our own extract, but sometimes shortcuts are where its at.  Like when you remember that you wanted to brew Root Beer three days before a family BBQ at your house.

Followed by dinner and a movie on the couch — one that I LOVED and am hoping to post about later this week.  P.S. That’s that pizza we bought from TJ’s and Joey liked it so much that he says he’s willing to make a stop at the store just for another one.  What is happening?!

I swear I was going to get up early on Sunday to fit in a run before it got too hot, but my bed just felt too nice and then there was the mention of pancakes and that whole running plan went right out the window.

I can’t remember the last time we participated in Pancake Sunday so this breakfast was extra delightful.  I bought the biggest carton ever of blueberries and thought pancakes were the perfect way to put them to good use.

Followed by a Root Beer tasting at 10 AM, naturally.

I’ll completely bore you and say we spent the entire day cleaning and organizing our house.  All those projects that we were so adamant about doing right away finally got done… 10 months later.

I love my little NOLA wall 🙂

Also, these tape lines that we put up when we first moved in and were trying to decide on some mirrors to hang over our bed were finally replaced by some Georgia O’Keeffe prints that I bought at least four years ago…

Yeah, that’s better.  Although I will miss the conversation starter that the blue tape provided 😛

We ended the day with dinner to celebrate my Mom’s birthday.  She’s leaving for New Orleans this week and will be gone on her actual birthday so we celebrated a little early.  And we ate at an amazing restaurant — something else I’m hoping to post about later this week.

How was your weekend?
