Weekend Review

Better late than never, right?!?

I say it every time, but three day weekends are where it's at!!

Friday night my sister and I met up to do some sewing. We followed this YouTube video and made ourselves some fancy reversible aprons.

I must say, this project was more difficult and time consuming than our others thus far, but I think it would be easy peasy after doing it a few times. We are very happy with how they turned out.

Saturday morning Mr. Pickle and I went out to breakfast and then came home and lounged

It was so nice to not have an agenda and just relax. We watched The Town which we both liked, but I swear my blood pressure was up at some of the suspenseful scenes!!
Sunday morning Mr. Pickle's parents came over to help us with a few house projects. Mr. Pickle's mancave is pretty much complete with all of his sports paraphernalia hanging on the walls. We had a lunch date with some friends at a nearby dim sum restaurant and it was tasty. I always crave dim sum, but don't eat it very often so it was a nice treat. Later in the day we went to my grandpa's to visit with him and bring him dinner. I tried Tara's pot roast recipe (found here) and thought it turned out great.

Monday we did some chores around the house and enjoyed our extra day off!! It was a beautiful day, but a little chilly!
