On Saturday, my fiance and I met with a travel agent to figure out what we want to do for our honeymoon. The appointment was kind of a bust, but we did narrow down where we want to go... it's looking like the winner is going to be St. Lucia! There are so many options of things to see aside from just the beach; we plan on hiking the pitons, going to a live volcano, visiting the hot springs... the possibilities are endless :) All we have left to do is book the trip!
Saturday night, I met up with my friend Leah to celebrate her 29th birthday. We've been friends for over 21 years - I can barely believe it. We went to our favorite local spot, the Green Dog Cafe. I ordered the Harvest Salad - mixed greens with apples, apricots, goat cheese and a walnut vinaigrette. I caved an ordered the gluten-free cookie :)
It was delicious! Not very sweet, so it was the perfect after dinner splurge. Getting home was a little treacherous, due to the fact that it had started snowing like crazy during our dinner. I drove slow and made it home in one piece. I don't know about all of you, but I'm ready for winter to be over and spring to be here.
Our home is a little bit in shambles. We're remodeling our dining room for the past month and have had multiple issues with the contractor for the ceiling. In a nutshell, we tried to prime the ceiling last weekend but couldn't because the plaster hadn't set correctly, so he came to fix it. Then, when we went to paint this weekend the plaster hadn't been sanded to be flush with the ceiling and then paint made it ridiculously noticeable...so the contractor will hopefully be back to fix that this week and soon we'll be able to have the room finished. This seems to be our winter tradition- last year, we stayed in the itty bitty spare bedroom while remodeling our bedroom - it was horrible and just like last year, we'll be so happy when the new room is done.
I threw my coat over one of the 6 dining room chairs that is taking up shop in our living room - along with a huge china hutch and dining room table. About 20 minutes later, my fiance called and said "hey, you should hang up your coat," I checked the pockets to look for my keys and instead found all my favorite candy. We shared a fast break on one of our very first dates after Paul learned I'd never had one before. What a perfect weekend surprise :)
Hope your weekend was just as fun! See you all later with a post about meal prep :)
What did you do this weekend?
