Weekend Review - Sans Pictures

Another weekend flew by and Monday has arrived too soon A-G-A-I-N! I must say that although it is Monday, I am not as sleepy as I usually am on Mondays. Why you ask? I fell asleep at 7:30 last night!!!! I can't believe I got that much sleep, I must have been exhausted from the weekend festivities. But, if you think that is bad...Mr. Pickle fell asleep at 6:30. Yes, it is true, we definitely cannot hang like we used to.

Being that I was sleeping all evening, I didn't get a chance to upload my pics from the weekend. Good thing I kinda slacked off on taking pictures because there really would have only been one or two to include any ways. On to the picture less weekend recap.

Friday after work I went to my mom's house to have dinner with her and my sister. She left for Maui bright and early on Saturday morning so we thought making her dinner would be a nice way to send her off (since she was going to be without us in Maui on Mother's Day - yeah, I really don't think she cared, she is in Maui after all). After dinner my sis and I hung out at my house looking at some wedding ideas for her wedding. (Side note, although she isn't officially engaged yet, her and her bf have set a date. Her bf is continuing to save up for the ring since he wants my sister to have the perfect engagement ring!)

Saturday my sis and I woke up bright and early to go for a walk before we helped our friend move to a new apartment. We were literally moving ALL. Day. Long. Finally we got so hungry we decided to call it a day and go to dinner. Then we decided we needed to celebrate the move (my friend just got out of a long term relationship where she lived with her boyfriend, so this move was a little rough on my friend), so we headed out to the bars. I guess we don't get out too often because the bars in the area that used to be kick back bars are now charging cover and trying to be dance clubs. WTF? If I wanted to go dancing I would go to the swanky 'clubs' in a nearby town or go to San Francisco. We resorted to one of our typical bars where there is a juke box, photo hunt, pool tables and not packed with club goers. My sis and I had to be up early the next day so we swore we were only going to go out with our friend for an hour or two, yeah we ended up staying until closing time and didn't get to bed until 3. Oooops.

Sunday morning my sis had a maternity photo shoot for some of our friends. I went along to assist and did a pretty good job if I do say so myself (toot toot). When we got home we took a little snoozer while Mr. Pickle and my sis' bf were BBQing. Later we went to pick up my grandpa and brought him to my house for a Mother's Day BBQ for Mr. Pickle's mom. We had a wonderful time and ate some delicious food, but after everyone had gone home and the mess was cleaned up, Mr. Pickle and I headed to bed! I watched a little TV, but as I mentioned earlier didn't last much longer than Mr. Pickle before I was OUT.

Woke up this morning feeling pretty rested :)

How did you all spend your weekend?

PS. What is up with the rain in Nor Cal???? It is May. In California. I no longer wish to see the rain until November. Kthanksbye!
