We went to eat at a restaurant that NEVER has a wait to get in even on the busiest Saturday night. However, Valentine's Day is another story apparently. We got there right before 6, and there was already a 45 minute wait. So, we hovered over some people in the booths in the bar and sat down after only about 15 minutes. Win.
... got a conversation heart cake! After we came home from dinner, Donny brought out this ice cream cake for me! I love these candies, so this was an awesome surprise. :)
And some beautiful roses. :)
... made this Bacon & Pea Mac & Cheese for dinner on Friday night. Donny absolutely loved it. I, however, thought it was gross and ate cereal for dinner. But then again, I don't love cheese, and this was very much cheese-flavored. Blech... I didn't even take a picture because it wasn't worth it for me. Ha.
... slept in. On Saturday morning, I slept until about 9:30, which I haven't done in forever. It was heavenly. (Sunday beat that-- it was 10:05 before I woke up to get ready for church!)
... watched curling. For some reason, Donny is obsessed with curling. I don't really understand a lot of what happens during a curling match, but I'm learning. The US Championships were Saturday, so we watched them on tv.
... ate Chipotle. So I didn't have to leave my nice, warm house in the snow, Donny went and got us Chipotle for lunch. :)
... saw Safe Haven. We decided later to brave the snow flurries and went to the theater. I loved the movie even though there were some significant story changes from the book. After the movie, we went to dinner and then to Barnes & Noble for a bit. I think I only added about 10 books to my goodreads to-read list while we were there, so I'll call that a victory.
... finally finished Natalie. After church, lunch at my grandma's house, some shopping for baby gifts for babies we will be seeing this weekend, we finally made it home where this quickly became the scene:
Yep, we're reading machines. I wasn't loving the book I was reading, so it took me over a week to finish even though it was only 240 pages. But I finally powered through on Sunday and got it done! We also watched Killing Lincoln on National Geographic last night, and I was slightly disappointed with it.
... woke up before the sun this morning. And just like that, my relaxing weekend came to a screeching halt when the alarm went off at 5:45 am. I managed to drag myself out of bed and to the gym after an extended hiatus. It felt good to get up and get going, but I could definitely tell that I forgot my Advocare Spark. It's an absolute requirement for those 6am workouts!
How was your weekend??
