Marvelous Monday!

23 Jun

I can’t believe it’s already Monday! This past weekend flew by which usually means that it was a great one (and it definitely was). I’m excited to fill you guys in on all of the marvelous that happened this weekend.

Marvelous is… an unexpected best friend date with Alex on Friday night!

I always see Alex on Friday nights when a bunch of us go to the Diamond for our usual shenanigans but it ended up being just the two of us since there was a structure fire in town right around the time we were about to leave to go out. The majority of our friends are in the fire department (including Dan) so this meant it was a best friend date night and we were totally fine with that. We were STARVING by the time we went out so I ordered a chicken wrap and she ordered a burger and we split them (because that’s what you do on date night, right?). We had a great night filled with laughter, people-watching, delicious drinks, and fun.

Marvelous is… a Saturday filled to the brim with fun activities!

I was able to get some errands done while Dan worked for a couple of hours in the morning so that worked out perfectly. We had lunch at the Diamond (I’m seeing a pattern here ha) with Melissa and it was so great to spend some quality time with her. After lunch we visited Cassidy Hill vineyard in Coventry, CT, which we had visited the previous weekend with my father for Father’s Day (and loved it) and we knew we had to come back ASAP with Alex because they had ALL the sweet wine and she loves her sweet wine. We didn’t stay too long at the vineyard because I hosted my Tastefully Simple party in the evening. It was a delicious and fabulous time and I’m so grateful to have great girls in my life who will always support me, especially when it involves sampling yummy food 🙂 After the party, a few of us decided to walk to the Strawberry Moon festival (basically a big block party) to meet the boys and from there we went to Hanafins pub and ended the night at the Diamond (duh).

Marvelous is… a true Sunday Funday!

We had plans to go to the Travelers Championship golf tournament with Dan’s dad and brother as a Father’s Day present and I was super excited for it! I have been to the tournament a few times before and its always a good time, especially with weather as great as it was yesterday. We met up with our friends Robbie and Jenna and it was all around a great, relaxing day. We got great tent passes for the 19th Hole Sponsor Club from our amazing friend Katie who works for the tournament (Thank you Katie!) so we were able to go into the air conditioning and there was a full service bar as well as food in there too. We stayed until about 4:00 and then headed home to finish up our Sunday errands. Since it was so beautiful out we decided to grill for dinner and picked up a couple of kabobs as well as some baby cabbages too because I currently can’t live without them. It was SO yummy and healthy too! It was a wonderful ending to a great weekend.
