The weekend, with love.

by katelin on July 18, 2011

I love weekends, I really do. And I think we need more of them, all of the time. Clearly. Anyhoo without too much rambling I present, My weekend:

Friday: I took the day off of work but despite that I had to start my day with the dentist, superb. Afterwards I came home and furiously did some work and last minute things to email off before Matt and I made our way to Santa Monica to meet up with Nora and Knight. It was so fun getting to meet Knight and hanging out and we grabbed lunch at a sports bar and just got to catch up and chat in person, pretty much perfection. After lunch we ventured into the Market and had gelato and roamed stores and just yum. We even made our way down to the pier and got some quality people watching in before deciding to take a ride on the ferris wheel. Seriously it was just lovely.

such a cute couple. 

Sadly after the ride Matt and I had to make our way home, so we said our goodbyes and hopped in the car to come on home. An hour and a half later we made it! Just in time to meet my family at dinner to celebrate my mom and my aunt’s birthdays! Dinner was fun times with margaritas and delicious food and my rambunctious family all trying to talk at once, good times all around. After dinner Matt decided that we should own the entire Harry Potter series so we detoured to Best Buy before heading to my parents’ house for some cake and hanging out. The rest of our night was spent relaxing at home with wine and the Wii and twas quite loverly all around.

Saturday: Slept in for a wee bit before doing some apartment cleaning and then lounging before making my way to Long Beach to celebrate the fabulous Kerri at her baby shower. Seriously, it was just the cutest. I thought Kerri was crafty, but apparently all of her friends are too and put on such an adorably cute and fun baby shower. It was so fun hanging out with such lovely ladies (so fun in fact that I only took three pictures! Drea took way more and I cant wait to see hers) and I cannot wait until Kerri becomes a mom:

such an adorable cupcake tree & LOVE the suitcases! 

so many cute girly presents for Kerri, love. 

with the lovely mom-to-be. 

After the shower I made my way back home just in time to go out to dinner with Matt, his dad and brother and our friends Danny and Amanda. It was a fun little Italian place where we could bring our own wine and despite the bad service the food was delicious. Once we finished up dinner Matt and I went to my friend Amanda’s going away party for a bit. There was some excellent music and a good time catching up with her before she departed for England and then moving to Washington, crazy pants. Afterwards Matt and I had some plans but they fell through so instead we came on home and enjoyed the rest of our night together.

Sunday: Slept in a bit again (what? I need my sleep people!) before waking up and went on a decluttering spree of the apartment while watching The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest (almost as good as the book!) and cleaning some more. Eventually I met my friend Katrina for some cheesecake and dip before coming home to play some more Wii and go grocery shopping and then have our freezer go all spastic on us and then watch Harry Potter from the beginning and then blog and then yes. Lots of things. All the things. My life is full of things*

And how was your weekend? Any Harry Potter watching or wine drinking or freezer kapputting for you?


happy monday!


*I totally realized that I sound like Nicole with that phrase. Needless to say having her as a SoCal neighbor is rubbing off on me, haha*

  • “Lots of things. All the things. My life is full of things.”

    Ha! This is how I feel all the time! Glad you had a great weekend! :)

  • Sounds like such a fun weekend! I watched the first 7 harry potter movies this weekend and blogged about it because it was just so awesome.

  • Your weekend sounds like perfection. Yay for hanging out with other bloggers. I love Nora. She’s all sorts of fabulous.

  • adorable pics!

  • Love the cupcake tree.

  • “My life is full of things.” Hahaha…that made me giggle. You’re always such a busy bee!

    Thanks again for taking the time to come to my baby shower – having you there meant so much to me! I’m going to have to steal those photos, too, since I didn’t even manage to take ANY of my own. Yikes!

    Love you, miss. :)


    that pretty much sums up my weekend.

    also? LOVE your dress. so cute!

  • Can I say how jealous I am that you have so many awesome bloggers so close to you? NYC is severely lacking.

  • What a fun weekend! Trying to figure out when you did sleep!

  • Cute shower pix! I would have loved the warm weather for mine.. oh wait, it was 0 degrees out. You guys will totally enjoy the HP movies, and I have no doubt you’ll be able to watch them in the 3 day time period that we did ;)

  • Fun weekend and adorable shower! There was indeed both Harry Potter and wine drinking that took place in my weekend, but happily no freezer kaputing ;)

  • Oh my gosh Kerri looks so cute! What a great shower. And I’m so jealous you got to see Nora! Great weekend.

  • this post makes me happy =) I still need to upload my photos from last weekend and when I do the pretzel picture and the photo of you and Matt is going up/being emailed too you!!!! Was so much fun to see you. Knight was all “why can’t they live closer?” I think he has a man crush on matt.

    And OMG Kerri and the baby shower and just so cute. Glad you had a great weekend and thrilled I could be a part of it! <3

  • Sounds like you had the perfect weekend! I love that first picture of the ocean — it looks so peaceful! Kerri’s shower looks just darling! Oh, and you are rocking that dress! You look beautiful.

  • You look gorgeous in that dress and Kerri is SUCH a darling mama to be, I can only imagine how cute and fun her shower must have been! Reading about your Italian dinner made me want some Carbonara pasta!! I don’t know why but all of the sudden that dish popped in my head, haha!! YUM
