This past weekend, starting Thursday night, has been different than any other weekend since we’ve moved to California. Thursday evening, I dropped Nathan at the airport; he was off to a long weekend in Vegas for a bachelor party and he’s coming home today. But since I had the weekend to myself, I decided to make the most of my time and get together with the girls a couple times. It all started with the bonfire and s’mores on Thursday.
Friday was pretty quiet on the home front. I had a long shift at work and decided to spend the night snuggled up on the sofa watching Pretty Little Liars. I just finished season 1 last week and season 2 is so much better! It definitely sucked me into the show even more. Saturday was a quick day at work followed up with a little baking and movies in the park.
The night started with a free Talenti Caribbean Coconut Pop and champagne.. the perfect pair!
There was a lot more snacking and wine throughout the night, all while watching this fabulous movie.
It had been quite a few years since I’d seen Clueless but it was just as wonderful as I remembered. Ha! There were even parts that I definitely didn’t get the first couple times around. Reminds me of when I watched Grease again when I was a little bit older.. Greased Lightning? Yea…… listen to those words a little closer next time! Anywho, Saturday was a really fun night and I love that they have movies in the park like that. I’m hoping to make it to more over the summer!
Yesterday was super relaxing and surprisingly productive! I got off to a late start at the gym which meant my breakfast ended up not happening until 11:45.. whoops! I discovered a little vegan shop in Berkeley, Republic of V, in search of some black bean pasta. I got my pasta [black and soy bean] and there are so many different things that I’d love to try. This time I just stuck with what I knew.
The rest of the day was spent cleaning, laundering, and cooking. I’m working a lot this week, including my 5 am shift today [lovely!], so I took advantage of my extra time and whipped up a bunch of breakfast burritos for Nathan, roasted a spaghetti squash, and got my food packed up for work today. I also found a delicious new drink..
.. and had a really tasty dinner using my soy bean pasta, roasted brussels and broccoli, all mixed with cheesy avocado sauce. Delish!
Time for another crazy week ahead. Happy Monday, friends!
