Reading, wine & red velvety goodness.

by katelin on March 14, 2011

This past week was slightly ridiculous. Like stressful and dramaful and all sorts of ridiculous. So this weekend I decided to be as lazy as I possibly could. And I’m pretty sure I succeeded. Anyhoo, the weekend went a little something like this:

Friday: Met Matt at our friends’ parents house for dinner. Had a fabulous Italian meal with Gianni and Laura and the family. Lots of laughs and catching up and good times and wine and yay. After dinner we did a Coldstone run and seriously, ice cream? Freaking YES. Eventually called it an earlyish night and win all around.

Saturday: Woke up earlyish and was so domestic by going to Bed, Bath & Beyond and getting such householdy things. Then I came home, cleaned up and did more domestic thingies. In the evening my aunt and uncle had a BBQ which was so fun, I felt like I hadn’t seen my whole family since Christmas. And even more exciting my cousin showed up with her baby (who I had yet to meet) and my ovaries exploded, haha. But really, the cuteness? Fabulous. And my family? Adore them.

The night was fun and chatty and fabulous and yes. Wonderousness.

Sunday: Woke up earlyish and lazed about for a bit. Eventually decided today would be the day to finally make those red velvet pancakes. My aunt gave me some mix for Valentine’s Day and I had been dying to try it!

hello Instagram goodness.

Twas a delicious start to the day, I mean it was red velvet, how could I have gone wrong??

Post breakfast I spent the morning finishing my book and then dozing in and out of sleep (exciting I know). Eventually it was time for Matt and I to head to his mom’s house for dinner and we took a scenic route in Matt’s jeep with the top down (oh springtime weather I truly do adore you). Dinner was lovely with Matt’s mom and his brothers and my sister-in-law to be. We drank wine and had birthday cake (a belated celebration) and laughed and talked and chatted and just yes, loverly. The rest of the night was spent with Matt, some wine and Jurassic Park. Basically a stellar way to end a stellar weekend.

And how was your weekend? Anything red and velvety in the mix?


happy monday!
