…. and somehow, it’s Monday again.
Did anyone else’s weekend fly by? Mine definitely did, but it was all so much fun! This was the first weekend in a long time that we had no plans…. no weddings, no half marathon, no bachelorette party, and no bridal shower! Nothing!
As much as I loved being a part of such fun things, it was nice to be able to just relax this weekend.
Friday night was date night! It’s been so long since Bobby and I got to go out together, that we wanted to take full advantage.
$3 vodka cocktail happy hour?! Perfect way to start a weekend. I got pomegranate vodka and club soda with lots of lime on the side. Our waitress clearly took my “lots of lime” request seriously.
After hanging out and chatting for a bit, we headed next door to 1 Republik for some dinner. I got the Arugula salad, which I was nervous wouldn’t fill me up, but it was delicious and I was more than satisfied afterwards! The salad had shaved pecorino, roasted lemon vinaigrette, and grilled salmon on top.
I truly think I could eat that salad every day for the rest of my life and be a happy camper.
After dinner, Bobby and I headed home to our couch, where we watched some shows on DVR and I started reading the second 50 Shades book! So far, so good!
It was a perfect Friday!
Saturday morning we slept in until around 8 before heading out the door to the gym. I was so excited to have no time constraints for my workout! After warming up with 20 minutes on the elliptical, I completed one of Julie’s circuit workouts.
I’m still sore, and it feels glorious. Before heading home, I rounded out my workout with 25 more minutes on the elliptical. Such a great way to start my Saturday!
Bobby and I spent the remainder of our day doing chores around the apartment and running some errands. I also attempted my first sock bun….
I’m pretty excited about this little discovery after spotting many sock buns pop up on quite a few blogs recently.
Around 4, I decided to head into NYC to meet up with some girl friends for some dinner and drinks!
It was a gorgeous afternoon, so we decided to go someplace where we could sit outside by the water.
We got a couple of pitchers of white sangria, which were amazing. Since I’m trying my best to cut back on my sugar intake though, I stuck to one small glass before switching to a white wine spritzer.
Gorgeous view from our table…
We were having such a blast that before we knew it, it was 10 and we still hadn’t eaten yet. Although I wasn’t feeling super hungry, I knew I needed to get some food in my stomach.
I suppressed my slightly buzzed desire for fried bar food, and ordered a simple green salad with grilled chicken. I was actually pretty impressed with my willpower, but thinking about my hard workout earlier in the day and being in a bikini in Bermuda helped make my decision easier!
We had such a fun night. It was one of those nights where my cheeks hurt from laughing!
We called it a night around midnight and I made my way back home to Bobby.
Yesterday was spent doing some blog work (updated the Classroom page and dropped the “.wordpress” from my blog name ), a trip to the mall, and relaxing with Bobby and Romo… perfect end to a perfect weekend!
What was the BEST part of your weekend?
