Weekend Recap

Wow. I went a whole week with no new blog posts, and it’s already time for another weekend recap!  This last week & weekend was super busy, but the good kind of busy.  I know I kind of failed at updating the blog, but- the good news is I did a lot of blog-related projects, which means I have some good things in store for the future.  So stay tuned :)

Thursday my bestie came to stay with me for the tail-end of her spring break, which means I was a very happy girl all weekend.  I love her visits!  Thursday night after work she and I went to a local bar to play pool.  We are no good, so what should be a 15 minute game is a 45 minute game for us.  (And, we of course, are chatting and laughing the whole time.)  We had $1 tacos and beers which felt like college again.

The birthday party was a blast.  My family is crazy.  We had dinner, cake, and a competitive game of Pictionary on the Wii.  My nephew and brother ended up having a dance off in the living room which was quite possibly one of the funniest things ever.  I was laughing nonstop the whole time.

Hope you all had a great Monday.  Here’s to a new week!
