My kind of weekend.

by katelin on April 11, 2011

Oh weekend, you always leave too soon. But per usual you were lovely and you are so very missed already. So a recap shall we? Sure, let’s go!

Friday: Oh what a big day at work. We had to pack up the office and clean up for the big move on Monday. So basically the morning was a little nuts and all sorts of hectic for me. Eventually we all went out to lunch to commemorate our last day in Silver Lake and it was so fun. I had breakfast for lunch and just good times and chats with coworkers I don’t usually get to see and just yes. Once we made it back to work our internet was wonky and we all packed up and called it a bit of an early day, which was so needed and very appreciated.

To celebrate Friday night Matt and I decided to make it a sushi date night. Oh how I love me some good sushi, we even branched out and ordered some rolls we didn’t usually get. And to make the night even more entertaining I realized about fifteen minutes after we were seated at the sushi bar that I was sitting right next to my high school art teacher! Seriously, small world sometimes. We caught up a bit and ironically he had just returned from a trip to Italy and we got to chat about that and just sushi and how life had been for me since I’d graduated (nine freaking years ago, holy crap). After dinner Matt and I hung out for a bit before our friend Gianni came over bearing wine and wafers (excellent combo) and we flipped between the Masters (boring) and the L:akers and the Dodgers and just had all sorts of fun conversation and loverliness.

Saturday: Slept in for a bit (hurrah!) before Matt and I decided to venture to Universal Studios for the afternoon. We went to the animal show and rode the Simpsons ride and took the studio tour (which is the actual best part of the whole place) where we learned some new things and I took some pictures I hadn’t before, like this one of Amity Island, a place I’d never want to visit (ever, ever!) haha:

The rest of the afternoon I spent at home doing some spring cleaning and napping and TV watching and just relaxingly wonderful things. We ordered take out BBQ (pulled pork nachos may the BEST EVER) and lounged which was just so nice. Eventually we met up with my sister and her boyfriend at our local dive bar and had some drinks there (I mean we figured being social with other people would be a good thing as well, haha). Twas a good nigh all around.

Sunday: Slept in again (hurrah times a million) before doing some morning cleaning and Wii dancing. Later in the day I did a couple miles worth of walking with my mom (ohmygodthehalfmarathonisamonthaway!) which was nice, perfect weather and all. The rest of my day was spent doing some more Spring cleaning, giving myself a pedicure, napping and having breakfast for dinner with Matt. My kind of Sunday.


All in all it was a lovely weekend and glad I got to spend so much of it with Matt since the next fiveish weekends are already set in stone with all sorts of plans (nuts I know).

And how was your weekend? Get some cleaning in? Sleeping?


happy monday!

  • It sounds like you had the perfect weekend! Pulled pork nachos sound like heaven. I had a lovely weekend, too – got some cleaning, sleeping and reading in!

  • Your weekend sounds fabulous. I love when you have no big plans so you have the freedom to go out if you want or just be spontaneously lazy!

    I spent the weekend in Boston with my best friends. With all the work/school/life craziness lately, it was definitely needed!

  • Jen

    Yay for nachos! Yum. Sans pork, for moi.

    And sleeping in and pedicures sound fab.

  • I am jealous of your weather but it was 80 something here on Sunday!

  • Sounds like a really fantastic weekend! I’m so glad the weather stayed nice even though it was forecast for rain. I didn’t plan anything and then ended up having a really enjoyable and really packed weekend. It was nice!

  • Pulled pork nachos? I need more of those in my life whatever they are. Sounds delicious.

    I love that you went to Universal again and the studio tours at theme parks are some of my favorite things ever. I always learn new things at those :)

    I didn’t get sleeping in, but oh well… this weekend hopefully! I did do a bunch of cleaning on Friday night before the guests arrived though. So that was good.

  • I want a weekend like that! I want to sleep in and have breakfast for dinner! I did manage to experiment with a new ice cream flavor: Lucky Charms Ice Cream. But other than that, it was a productive worky weekend.

    Maybe I’ll do breakfast for dinner tonight!

  • Good luck with the big move!
    We, uhh, bought a condo this weekend. So lots of stress and no relaxing but so worth it :)

  • I love that you can just wake up on the weekend and decide to go to Universal Studios. I’m so jealous!

  • Sounds like a lovely weekend! And we’ll definitely be getting some walking in this week to in New Orleans, WOO!

  • you had me at sushi date night. swoooon.

  • Sarnt’ Ed

    Hey Kate! Sounds like you guys had the weekend I have been craving for a loooooong time! I am holding my breath until next week, we get to take leave for a whole week! I get to go home and actually spend time with Oxana and Sophia! I cant wait! Especially after a month of training in the field playing Army! Lots of love to you guys!

  • I loved what you’ve done here. The design is elegant, your content classy. Yet, you’ve got edginess to what you’re offering here. Ill definitely come back for more if you keep this up. Don’t lose hope if not too many people see your vision, know you’ve got a fan right here who values what you’ve got to say and the way you’ve presented yourself. Good on you!
