I started my weekend on Friday afternoon by getting a babysitter while I spent a couple hours at the salon getting my hairs did! I was long overdue for a highlight (roots are for trees, say what???) and cut, so now I feel like a new woman!
I came home a little after five, paid the babysitter, and poured myself a cocktail...it most definitely was 5:00 somewhere...ahem, like my deck in the backyard! It was only 75 degrees on Friday, and I wasn't going to let that weather go to waste! I was craving my new favorite cocktail concoction: Smirnoff Root Beer Float Vodka mixed with Cherry Coke Zero. Seriously delish!
Saturday morning came way too early...but I forced myself to get up and go for a run because I just knew that the day would involve a lot of eating, eating, drinking and more eating! Plus, there was no way I was going to let the 55 degree morning go to waste!
When I got back, we all had some coffee, chatted, then got ready for the day. We ate brunch at an amazing little diner where I had an amazing bacon, cheddar and swiss cheeseburger omelet, (sounds gross, but came highly recommended, and it definitely didn't disappoint!) hash browns and pancakes...
We waddled out of there, and headed down to the zoo again...even though we were just there two days before! That's what the out of towners wanted to do, so we obliged ;) It was a gorgeous, unseasonably cool 75 degree day so it was ideal...and everybody and their dog thought so too...as there were thousands and thousands of people there!
We came home, put Madden down for a nap, and we headed to the backyard to play a few yard games and a few hands of cards...followed by what else?? More snacking, and drinking! I'm pretty sure I drank my weight in root beer float vodka this weekend!
Then, after all six of our babysitter options weren't available, we ended up bringing Madden with us to dinner. I was nervous about dragging him along, but he did FANTASTIC! We didn't even know he was there, 90% of the time. We enjoyed some more delicious food, then headed home a little after 9. We tried to play a few more games of cards, but we were all exhausted and ended up crashing around 10:30.
Sunday morning we grabbed breakfast from our new favorite taco hut by our house...hands down, the best breakfast burrito I have ever eaten. Homemade tortillas just make everything amazing. We followed that up with some coffee on our deck, while we enjoyed another beautiful unseasonable cool morning before they packed up and headed back North.
We played recovery the rest of the day, while I baked some cookies, a strawberry peach streusel and did laundry to get ready for the week...then, to end the night, we all hopped in the car and did a little Sunday night cruising with the windows rolled down as we jammed to some music. The perfect ending to a great weekend.
Until next time...
