Wonderful Weekend!

10 Mar

Hi everyone! I am SO excited to be able to write this post and recap a busy and fun weekend. I’m actually surprised that I can look back at it in that way since I worked allllll day Saturday but I was able to fit in so much fun in every other part of the weekend that I would definitely chalk it up to being a success!

Wonderful is… a delicious dinner at Wood N Tap on Friday! I was in serious need of some quality girlfriend time as well as some time spent with Dan since I knew I would barely see him at all on Saturday. The meal was delicious and the company was even better. There were so many laughs and so much fun was had. I’m telling you there is nothing better than a dinner out with friends to turn your mood around. For my meal, I started with an app salad with tomato vinaigrette (delish!) and I went with the chick bites as my main course. These are basically like little chicken sliders with an amazing chipotle mayo type of sauce. I was planning on ordering dessert so I made it a point to only eat two of my four sliders and I brought the rest to work for lunch the next day. For dessert, I devoured a chocolate torte which definitely satisfied my sweet tooth!

Wonderful is… Lia Sophia! For those of you who have never heard of Lia Sophia, it’s like Avon or Pampered Chef but for jewelry. I hosted my own Lia party back in January and got over $500 in free jewelry (YES!). More recently my friend Natasha hosted a party and I’m actually attended another one hosted by my friend Alyssa on Saturday night. This was such a fun night with girlfriends and our consultant Denise is always making us laugh. Believe it or not, there are three more parties being hosted within my group of friends within the next couple of months. I’m pretty sure I will own the entire catalogue once we are done with these parties which is awesome for me but not for my wallet! I love Lia Sophia because they always have great promotions going on and their jewelry is beautiful and comes with a lifetime warranty which is nearly impossible to find these days. I am NOT a Lia Sophia consultant but it’s something that I am definitely considering within the next year or so since it seems like such a fun way to earn some extra money.

Wonderful is… a late dinner at Maggie McFly’s on Saturday! After the Lia Sophia party, a few of us wanted to continue the girls night and decided to head to Maggie Mcfly’s for dinner. For those of you who have never been to a Maggie McFly’s, it’s very similar Cheesecake Factory. The food is delicious and the drinks are even better. We started with the mac and cheese bites as an app since I knew I would be ordering a salad for dinner and I wanted to cheat a little bit on my diet  J. For my meal, I had an ahi tuna salad with wasabi dressing which was to die for! The tuna was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and I can’t wait to go back and order it again. I wasn’t planning on a dessert but once I saw the tiramisu on the menu, I knew I had no choice. Tiramisu is my favorite dessert of all time and although this one didn’t live up to my current favorite from Vito’s in Wethersfield (where my friend Natasha works), it still definitely hit the spot. Last but definitely not least I had a Barbie’s Dream House e-tini for my drink of choice and I will let the photo speak for itself. It was a GREAT night with the best girls and I can’t wait to do it again

Wonderful is… a spontaneous Sunday Funday trip to the casino. Dan and I knew we wanted to get away for a couple of hours and get in some good quality time so we decided to head to Mohegan Sun. The plan was to grab a few apps for lunch somewhere, gamble, shop, and then head home in time to prep our lunches for the week. We ended up going to Michael Jordan’s 23.sportcafe and split some sliders, chili, and calamari. The sliders were so yummy and the chili had filet mignon in it which made it very unique and tasty. The calamari was not the best I have ever had but that is probably because it only had the rings and not the little octopus guys that I love so much. Either way, the meal definitely hit the spot and the place had a very cool, low key vibe. We both gambled $20 and lost that quickly but it was fun! The only shopping we really did was at Yankee Candle (#obsessed) and I used a $20 off coupon and got two new summery scented candles. Overall, it was a great day and really awesome to be able to get away for a couple of hours.
