Weekend Update

Hi Friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! The Husband and I literally relaxed all weekend. Friday afternoon thunderstorms swept through the city and the evening commute was terrible. The Husband and I were both relieved to find out each other wanted to just stay in. We put on our PJ's and dialed up our favorite Chinese takeout place, and plopped down on the couch. It was DVR time!

Saturday brought on errands, a lunch date with The Husband and then some pool time. My favorite Sangria made an appearance and I've decided to call this the Summer of Sangria. It's such a light summer cocktail!

We stayed at the pool until 7:45pm and the thought of getting dressed up to go out just sounded exhausting. So, we hit the repeat button and stayed in to cook up some steaks. The Husband assisted me with cooking dinner and the prep time was cut in half. We pulled out all the stops and had a nice candle light dinner. Clean up was a cinch and it was nice to have a helper in the kitchen! Hopefully he will oblige me again sometime. :)

Sunday we heard a great sermon at church and then we had a nice lunch at our favorite crepe place, Crepe Revolution. We hadn't been there in a while and it was so good! After lunch we hit the pool for more R&R. It was so nice to not think about much of anything other than working on my tan!

I can't believe it's Monday already. Here's wishing you a great week!
