This weekend started on Thursday night for me! I had to take the day off on Friday to use up my remaining vacay day. No problem here.
Thursday night I played volleyball in my friend's league. It was so fun! I haven't played in years so I was rusty, but whatever, I had a blast!
Friday I slept in and caught up on Revolution. Did any of you watch that show? I sort of got into it, but I'm not sure I'll watch the second season.
The rest of the afternoon I had a dentist appointment, a training session at the gym, and a MUCH-NEEDED haircut! I got a Groupon for a cut, full highlights and style for only $60! I had to travel across town for my new 'do, but a girl's gotta do what a girl-with-split-ends-and-root's gotta do!
Andrew knows by now that when I get a haircut I need a drink. I always feel like my hair deserves it because it just looks so nice after a fresh cut and color. Sure it's ridiculous, but I'll use any reason to celebrate actually styling my hair! So when I said I had a haircut this was his reaction: "so I'll meet you at the bar when you're finished?" Swoon.
Saturday was lazy with spurts of busy. We must have called and/or emailed a dozen potential venues for our wedding reception. Two words for you: sticker shock. Oy.
We happily checked our mail on Saturday and the CD of our proposal pictures arrived! Please visit my Facebook page for the whole album, but here are four of my favorites!
Needless to say, we were happy to add these to Facebook and relive the exciting evening!
Then, I ventured out to dinner...
...when should my wondering eyes did appear?
The CTA Holiday Train, and some tiny fake reindeer!
I love the holiday train!
Oh, were you wondering where I went to dinner?
Well, I happened to meet up with the ladies from this link-up! Yep! I met Leann and Sami! I also got to see Dana and Chris from Chubbette Tales! I haven't seen them since the Blogger Blitz this summer, so it was AMAZING to reconnect, meet the lovely Leann and Sami, and have delicious treats at Mercadito!
Our little blogger meet-up, or blate, seriously made me love blogging even more: I mean, I would have never met these incredible women without this blog of mine. Yay for new friends!!
Oh and ladies, why didn't we take a picture together?!?! I'm very sad we failed to do this! Reason to hang out again, I guess ;)
Sunday was a nice day recovering from margaritas, going to Mass, watching football, and checking out our first venue! We really liked it and will absolutely keep it on our list!
But yeah. Sticker shock. Yowsah.
Oh! One more thing I promise!!
I sent some goodies to Meagan at Local at Last and Lola at Waiting for Baby sent two gorgeous and adorable ornaments to me! I can't believe she knew that I love sparkles and penguins! Amazing!
How fun to meet two new bloggers!
How were all of your weekends?
I didn't get to decorating, so that must happen next weekend.
What did you do?
