Weekend Update!

Long time, no see…I apologize for my lack of posts lately…do you ever have those times in your life that are so draining (both emotionally AND physically) that you just can’t muster up the energy to do anything that isn’t absolutely necessary?  Well, that was my week last week.  Don’t worry…nothing tragic was going on…just a lot on my mind and a lot going on both personally and professionally, and I just needed to take some time for me!  So, without further ado, here’s what last weekend was all about…

Nikki (a friend that Alysia and I used to work with) was in town for the weekend and the three of us met up on Friday night for some after work drinks.  It was so fun to get to spend time with them…reminded me of the good ole days when we were all meeting up on the reg!

Saturday, after thinking it was going to rain all morning, I finally decided to just take the risk and head to the pool…it ended up being a great day for soaking up some rays…four hours and a mean sunburn later, I was officially baked!  That evening, Patrick and I had a little date night.  We headed to The Sushi Train for dinner, then to Trader Joe’s, then to get some froyo!  It was a great night!  We both liked The Sushi Train, but neither of us thought the sushi was amazing!  Still, it was a cool concept and a lot of fun.  IMG_0601IMG_0603IMG_0604IMG_0606That evening, we came home and tortured Zoey with some treats we had picked up at Trader Joe’s!  This is one of my favorite tricks of hers…she would sit still for hours if we made her waiting for us to tell her she can have that treat!

That evening, Patrick and I headed to church at Crosspoint and then to Chuy’s for dinner.

This weekend was equally as wonderful!  Friday night, we had dinner with Jason and Amanda at Shabu Shabu House.  For those who have never eaten Shabu Shabu, it’s like The Melting Pot for Asian food.  We had a great time!  The food was really good and the company was even better.IMG_0610On Saturday, I ran about 985 errands and then it was time to head to the Gooch’s Annual Pool Party.  Apparently, this was the 7th year of this awesome shin-dig, and this year may have been the best year, yet!  It was so fun to relax by the pool with some of my favorite people. 

Sunday was spent laying in bed too late, watching Crosspoint Church on TV because we were too tired to get dressed and go to the actual service, and some laying by the pool that afternoon.  That evening, I cooked dinner and we just relaxed and prepped for the week.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend as well!  Cheers to a great week, too!
