Weekend Review

I had a wonderful 3 day weekend.

Thursday night, I met some girlfriends for happy hour at a local wine bar. We ended up heading to a country bar after the wine bar. Good thing I didn't have to work on Friday, because those who did weren't feeling too hot!

Friday morning, after sleeping in, I ran some errands and met up with my sister. We surprised our best friend (who just found out she is pregnant) with a surprise visit at her office. We brought her some flowers, a card and a book on being pregnant (since we obviously can't tell her if what she is going through is normal or not).

Afterwards, my sister and I hit up one of our favorite sushi restaurants for lunch. Mmmmm, I seriously could eat sushi every day. And what does a just engaged girl and her sister feel is appropriate to do right after stuffing their faces with sushi?!?! Why go wedding dress shopping of course. My sister tried on a few dresses and found two she REALLY likes. I know it sounds harsh, but I didn't expect my sister to look so good in girly wedding dresses. Don't mean to sound rude, but I was always the girly girl dressing up in pouffy, sparkly dresses growing up and she was more of a tomboy. I must say, her two favorite of the day looked gorgeous on her and totally fit her style.

Afterwards we met up with another friend and saw Scream 4. I thought it was good considering the movie. The Scream movies have never been realistic or believable. There were younger girls in the theater voicing their opinions of how unrealistic the movie is. Uhhhhh, did you see the first three movies?

Still in the wedding planning mood, my sister and I went back to my house to watch sToribook Weddings and Say Yes To The Dress while doing some online research. Eventually I made us dinner, she took me to ice cream and I drove her home. The perfect day off!

Saturday morning I got some chores around the house done and headed to a nearby park for a friend's birthday party. We had a bbq and some other yummy treats. The girls all hung out and chatted, while the boys entertained themselves playing whiffle ball and the birthday boy took a nap on a bench!

I literally came home after wards and lounged for the rest of the night. I was too full to move!!!

But, Sunday was another day and a holiday at that. And of course the only way to celebrate holidays is to stuff your face with your loved ones. (No wonder why I am still chubby!!) We all met at my mom's house and enjoyed a relaxing day with family and friends.
