Weekend Update!

Once again, the weekend didn't last quite long enough!  It was a really nice one though.  The weather here in Music City was AH-mazing, and the fact that I didn't really have any plans going into this weekend made it even nicer, since it allowed me to just wing it and decide how to spend my time as I went along.

Friday night was dinner and a movie with my beau!  We went to see this movie:
This is two sentence review of this movie:  very cute and fun for the ladies, but a little too mushy for the boys.  It definitely had its funny parts, but it also had its far-fetched, silly parts as well!  Rental?  Maybe...

Since this was my first weekend to work this year, my Saturday morning was kind of a bust...however, it's still not TOO busy at work right now, so I was able to spend my last hour in the office cleaning and organizing in preparation of "the season." 

As I was leaving work that afternoon, my neighbor texted me and asked me to stop by her house so I spent the next hour and a half hanging out and drinking wine with her and a couple of her friends (don't worry, ladies...I used my Flex Points for that wine, so I didn't blow my diet).  =)  It was so much fun to sit out on the patio and enjoy the first glimpse of Spring!

The rest of Saturday was spent running, grocery shopping, cooking dinner, and just overall relaxing.  =)

Today was definitely the best day of the started out by Patrick and I meeting Adam, Alacia and Baby Hannah at their church for the Sunday morning service.  We had visited their church once before when Patrick was the Godfather for Hannah's Baptism, and we really liked it a lot.  Therefore, when Patrick suggested that we go to church this Sunday, that church was at the top of my list.  Oh, and just for reference, here's a pic of the Stainbrook family back in May the first time we were at their church:

I can't believe how different Hannah is now!  It's hard to believe she was ever that tiny!
Next on the agenda was brunch at Mad Donna's in East Nashville.  We had all heard they have wonderful brunch, including Capt'n Crunch French Toast (does that not sound to-die-for!), so we decided today was the day to check it out.  Obviously, I didn't get the French Toast (there's NOTHING Weight Watchers about French Toast), but all of our food was delicious.  The service however, left a lot to be desired.  There was a wait when we got to the restaurant, but it WAS noon on a Sunday, so we were cool with that.  It was the fact that we waited OVER AN HOUR for our food AFTER we were seated that was a little bit of a problem.  Still, it was a pretty good experience, and if you have lots of time to kill on a Sunday, I suggest you check it out!

On the way home from lunch, Patrick and I made one last stop to pick up my early Valentine's Day gift.  Yes, I realize it's not really romantic to get your Valentine's gift BEFORE Valentine's Day, but since the Super Bowl Party is at my house next weekend, I needed this to go on my bed when people come over:

The rest of the day was spent watching this movie:
It is a GREAT movie!  Oh, and BTW, watching a movie on a laptop because you STILL don't have a DVD player isn't really all that bad.  =)

Now, I'm trying to get ready for the work sure does make it hard when I have a fun weekend like this one...I'm determined this is going to be a good week though...fingers crossed!

What did you all do this weekend?  Hopefully, it was a great one!
