Weekend Update

Hey Friends! In the blink of an eye, the weekend came and went. So sad but hopefully this week will fly and another low key weekend will be on the horizon. This weekend was the first weekend in the new year that The Husband and I were in town and had nothing to do. We did a lot of nothing and it was glorious. No working, no commitments, just time together.
So what did we do? See the pics below for a glimpse of our weekend...

Friday night we grabbed a late dinner at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. It was just what the doctor ordered after a long Friday! 

My favorite salsa in ATL...

We totally indulged. Salsa and Cheese Dip. Please and Thank You! :)

Margaritas all around! 

My bow cuff showed up just in time for the weekend. Friday was a good mail day! 

Saturday we slept in, grabbed lunch at a favorite spot and then did a little shopping. We hit Ballard Designs, Room and Board and a few other local spots. Here are a few looks I'm crushing on...

Color is something we definitely need more of...

Loving these festive pendents and chandeliers. 

This chair doesn't go with anything in my house but I still love it! 

Saturday was another date night. Swoon! We started off by sampling this wine at home. It's a Bordeaux  blend and really earthy. The Husband liked it more than I did but it was still good. We looked it up and it's won a few awards. Definitely worth a try! 
I realize this pic is not a good close up. 
If you are interested in the name of the wine, just email me. 
I'm happy to send it to you! 

For dinner, we hit another favorite, JCT Kitchen. If you've been hanging around this blog for a while, you know how much we adore the Angry Mussels at JCT. They are ah-mazing!

After dinner, we popped in another favorite for an after dinner drink. I had wine and The Husband had an Old Fashioned. Can you tell we've been catching up on MadMen? 
I think it's his new drink of choice. Thank you, Don Draper. :)

Sunday we went to church, had lunch with friends and spent the rest of the 
afternoon grocery shopping and relaxing. It was nice to be home.

That's our weekend, friends. What did you do this weekend?
Here's wishing you a great Monday and a fantastic week!
