Oh hey.. me again. Shocking, since this is my blog and all. Don't mind me... I am just delirious and am having a case of the Mondays. This weekend ended wayyyyy too soon. And since I spent pretty much the whole day in bed yesterday nursing a hangover from hell, I feel like I lost a day and deserve it back. That's how it should work, right?
Anywhoooos, this weekend was an exciting one. Here lately, our weekends have been super low-key. Lots of staying in, movie watching, and sleeping late. So naturally, I'm wiped out from all of the excitement.
Ooh ooh! Before I start in on my weekend, I need to give a shoutout to my parents (hi mom!) for sending me warm cookies and chocolate covered strawberries from Tiff's Treats straight to my desk at work on Thursday. Such a sweet surprise! Parents make the best valentines.
Friday, we had a dessert potluck at work and I pretty much got diabetes and couldn't function the rest of the afternoon due to my inability to say no to all things sweet. It was sooo good.
After work, I beat Graham home to set up this cute little surprise. Too bad he didn't plan for me beating him home and all of my gifts were sitting unwrapped on his bed. Haha, such a ding dong.
He got three bottles of our favorite wine (wait, isn't that a present too me too?), some homemade chocolate covered strawberries and peanut butter balls, the cutest card ever from Tiny Prints (can we talk about how cute that card is!? I chose from a wide variety of options for every flippin holiday ever and added my own picture and words. So cute), and a scale.
Yep. A scale. He bought me workout clothes. Clearly the lovey-dovey gifts were out this year and fitness was in. Except we also didn't coordinate the chocolate purchasing and had close to 30 chocolate covered strawberries between the two of us in the fridge this weekend. Fitness obviously went out the door because those puppies are too delicious to pass up.
He also grilled me a steak and made his famous mashed potatoes, all paired with our fave wine. I died and went straight to heaven, yall.
I scored big time. I mean what a jack of all trades, right? And then our romantic Valentines Day night ended with an intense game of Mario Party, cause that's how we do.
Saturday was a good one. I intended on going to my barre class, but I was way too lazy and settled on eating Quiznos instead, like the fitness queen that I am. Since it was my best friend/roommate's birthday, we spent the latter half of Saturday day drinking by the lake and pregaming our night out with Mexican food and margs. It's important to note that I do not drink heavily anymore. I was a damn tank in college (a whopping 9 months ago) and now I can no longer hang. So I paced myself and only drank 2 beers and 1 margarita over the course of 4 hours because I am a responsible adult and I also did not want to fall asleep at 9pm.
Long story short of the rest of the evening: we went out, my best friend barfed in a trash can in the middle of a bar, and we were home by 12:30. I also took my second tequila shot of my whole life because Graham made me and I did not hate it. So there's that.
Sunday, I barely moved... because I clearly can't hang.
And that was my exciting Valentines weekend. Here's to hoping yours was full of love too!
