Oh what a weekend indeed. I’m trying not to fall asleep as I type this because I’m so exhausted but man was it worth it in every way.
Friday: After I got home from work me, Matt and our neighbor Erica trekked on over to Duarte to have dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory because I had never been! The idea to go came after talking about the night before we went to the Grilled Cheese Truck, so pretty much we love food, haha. Basically we had no wait and got to sit in a cool little area and were served super fast and man was it delicious. I had this crab ravioli and yum just yum. All in all it was a loverly little dinner party and I’ll definitely head back to OSF again one day. After dinner we all came home and Matt and I caught up on the DVR and just had a nice night to ourselves and it was loverly.
Saturday: Matt headed out early to the Long Beach Grand Prix and I had the day to myself to be productive and productive I was! I renewed my passport, did some grocery shopping, went to the bank, the library, and even fit in some shopping. A while back someone from TJ Maxx/Marshall’s contacted me asking if I’d be interested in doing some shopping there to experience their off-price items and how could I say no? So on Saturday I went to both a Marshall’s and a TJ Maxx to spend $50 total and see what sort of damage I could do and I must say I am in looove with my purchases.
I got these two super cute flowering pots (apparently I have to plant
something now, haha), a lovely frame, some artichoke spread and a dress I looove.
okay so not part of the $50 I splurged and got
this second dress because I just loved it’s dress up office appeal, haha.
Basically a very successful shopping trip. After TJ Maxx and Marshall’s I even made my way to Macy’s to finally get myself a bathing suit and a super cute new purse that when I have a bathing suit body again I’ll have to show it off, haha.
Anyhoozits, after my day o Katelin it was finally time for some fabulous ladies to come over. I had planned a girl’s night just to have it and I am so glad I did. To steal from Ali’s recap setup let’s just break it down like this:
Who: Tara, Kerri, Ali, Michelle, Andrea, Allison, me and Matt (yes I know it was girl’s night but Matt’s plans ended way earlier and we didn’t want to send him away especially since he made an even number for game playing).
Where: Our apartment.
Why: Because girl’s night are totally necessary.
Pretty much the night was full of lots of laughing, brownie and cookie eating, wine drinking, Sniglets playing and jokes about the Backstreet boys, robot walking and Israel. Needless to say it was all sorts of awesome and I cannot wait to do it again.
most of the ladies, cheers!
Ali laughed so hard so fell over, lav it.
Sniglets. You need to play it.
the Sniglet winners.
look at what you started Kerri!robot walk everyone!
Sunday: After some breakfast Matt and I decided to head to Universal Studios to start putting our annual passes to use. I pretty much love that place. I mean it’s all about movies and Hollywood so how could I not love it? Sure it doesn’t have as many rides as other theme parks but I still enjoy it. I also really loved that while on the Tram tour we got to visit Wisteria Lane (from Desperate Housewives). Seriously the houses are so pretty and it all looks so real and fun I love it.
the Solis house, lurve it.
Basically it was a perfect day for some rides and walking around. We ended the day in City Walk at had a delicious lunch/dinner and also got some doughnuts for the right home which I sort of really loooooved.
Afterwards we came home, relaxed and watched some TV, I napped a bit and just had a loverly Sunday night together.
Whew, so that was my busy yet oh so fun weekend. And how was yours?
