Labor Day Weekend 2016

6 Sep

Happy Tuesday! I felt like certain parts of this weekend flew by and others went by nice and slow. I loved everything about this past weekend, but especially the time we were able to spend with our close friends and family. I feel like we spent quality time with SO many different people and that was really nice.

As I had mentioned, I took Friday off and that meant I was able to sleep in a bit and write this Stitch Fix post and prepare our dinner. I was planning on going to boot camp but once my alarm went off, I was just not feeling it so I used it as a rest day. I spent the afternoon doing some shopping and I enjoyed a delicious Cobb salad from Panera outside on their patio. I came home and unloaded my goodies and spent a good couple of hours lounging in our sun room. It was a perfect, leisurely start to the holiday weekend. That evening, we enjoyed some crock-pot turkey chili along with a fabulous red wine before heading to the Diamond.

Gimme all that avocado 🙂

Saturday morning was spent at the farmer’s market where I was able to spend some time with my aunt and cousins while Dan and my Dad replaced the brakes on our Explorer (thanks guys!). The majority of Saturday afternoon was spent at a celebration of life for our best friend Tyler’s mom who had recently passed away. It was a beautiful celebration and it was wonderful to see so many people there supporting him and his family. Saturday evening we were a bit hungry so we decided to head to Birch Hill Tavern for some apps and we devoured their Sea Scallop and Arugula dip which was INSANE and I want more of that right now. We ended the evening by falling asleep at 9:00 on the couch watching the Harry Potter marathon. We are super cool.

Sunday was the absolute definition of a Sunday Funday. We went to Gouveia Vineyards with Alex and Natasha and then enjoyed a dinner back at our house of chicken, steak, and shrimp kabobs with sides of macaroni and potato salad. I took zero pictures of our dinner but it was delicious. I wish every single Sunday could be filled with that much laughter and love.

Monday was literally spent on the couch, I think for something like 12 hours. Robbie and Jenna came over, and later so did Morgan and Kody, and we watched four Lifetime movies and ordered Chinese food for dinner. It was the absolute laziest day we have had since we bought our house and it was perfection.

It was a great weekend and I’m happy that we have a short week so I can get back to more fun like that. Somehow, I’m still totally exhausted but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I hope you all have a fabulous week ahead!
