I heart long weekends.

Oh my what a weekend. I mean really, is it Friday yet? Because I could use another weekend after this one.

Friday: As I posted on Friday I got out at 3 (glorious), I mean I think we should get out at 3 every Friday, it’s just so nice. Anyhoodles, so after leaving work early I ran some errands, got some birthday presents and went back to my apartment for a well deserved nap. I mean, I don’t even remember the last time I had such a great nap, it was amazing. And instead of going to a happy hour (which was probably a smart decision for my liver) I waited for Matt to get home and my cousins to come over and we all headed out to dinner.

girls on the other :)

we wear our sunglasses at night, haha

So yeah dinner was a lot of fun, delicious food and fabulous company. Afterwards my cousins came back to our place (man I love saying that) to hang out and smoke some hookah and have some drinks, all in all a fabulous evening.

Saturday: I was so productive on Saturday it’s amazing. I deserve a pat on the back, or two for my hard work. I spent the morning organizing stuff in the apartment and running more errands a la the library, Target, Cost Plus, my parent’s house and then some. I was a productive machine, haha. After all that hoopla I finally came back to the apartment to relax a wee bit before I headed over to Glendora to go to my friend’s BBQ. Sadly I didn’t take any pics there because she has one super cute kid and I love taking pictures of him but I think I was just too hot to think about it. After a couple hours at the BBQ I headed back home to get ready for my Uncle’s 50th birthday party. Matt and I got all Mardi Gras ready and headed over to the party which was actually really really fun….and I have pictures to prove it of course:

cute cousins!

All in all it was a great party with lots of tasty food, delicious hurricane drinks, and laughs all around. It’s always a good time when my family gets together, gotta love it.

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!: Woke up to another day of apartment productivity and organizing, it was awesome. Later Matt and I went back to Cost Plus, Target and Bed, Bath & Beyond (seriously the people there must know me by now) to do some more shopping for the apartment. And before we knew it, it was time to get ready for Wicked! Matt, being the best boyfriend ever that he is, knew that I wanted to see it one more time before it leaves the Pantages this winter and got us tickets to Sunday’s night show.

Now I will be honest and say it wasn’t my favorite performance of Wicked, but it was still amazing. I thought that some of the new casting wasn’t as great at the people that performed last year but whatever, I still loved it, obviously. Afterwards we spent a lovely evening at home hanging out and watching a movie, just my kind of night.

Monday: Yesterday was spent hanging out at Matt’s mom’s house visiting with his cousin who’s in town from Chicago, utilizing the free laundry oppertunity at his mom’s house and watching some football highlights. I also made it over to my friend Megan’s house for a mini BBQ and swimming, it was lovely. After I left there Matt and I just worked on decorating the apartment and getting stuff done. Oh and since I owe you pictures of the place, here are two to hold you over:

the fridge is missing a bottom shelf so
haven’t really shopped yet, haha
and no we aren’t secretly living in a frat house

all of our movies in their shining glory,
I love it, LOVE it

So that was my weekend. Hopefully this week Matt and I will finish getting everything up in the apartment and get some real grocery shopping done, haha. I can’t wait.

And also, a very special happy birthday to two of my favoritest people today, my dad and…..Keanu Reeves! Woo! Hope you both have magnificently wonderous days :)

pps. don’t forget to enter the NKOTB giveaway! I already have the new CD and it’s pretty catchy, but then again I am clearly biased, haha. :)

happy tuesday!
