Hi friends! How was your weekend?

Ours was a pretty good one – the weather was unbelievably beautiful (but, um, made me slightly concerned about global warming?) and luckily we got to spend a lot of time outside on Saturday. Here’s a recap!

Friday

Friday night was dedicated to watching the Yankee’s playoff game. Fabio picked up some pizza from our favorite take-out spot, Wise Guys, and then we enjoyed it while watching the game. When we were done eating, I painted my nails and sipped on some wine.

Jack watched the game with us too. 🙂

It was a nice night, and the Yankees won!

Saturday

On Saturday morning, we headed into D.C. to celebrate two of our friends tying the knot! They held an intimate celebration at The Bird, which was a cute spot in Logan Circle I hadn’t been to before.

My forever wedding date!

P.S. – I wore this dress from Lulus and I thought it worked well for a fall wedding. 🙂

We were joined by a bunch of our close friends from college, which was so nice. It was great catching up with everyone!

The space was half indoors and half outdoors, which I loved. We wound up eating inside, and then hung out outside for a while mingling!

The food was also delicious – I got the chicken and waffles. Yummmm!!

I also loved the details they included – like little white pumpkins covered in succulents and take-home mugs with their last name printed on them.

And we had gelato and cupcakes for dessert!

I was stuffed so I wasn’t able to finish everything, but it tasted SO good! I definitely recommend The Bird if you’re in the area.

After the official celebration was over, we all headed over to Wet Dog Tavern to keep the party going. This was another fun outdoor bar that I hadn’t been to before, but would absolutely recommend. It had such a fun atmosphere! We spent the rest of the afternoon drinking outside with our friends, and it was such a perfect way to spend the day.

Our buddy Hershman!

Eventually, we headed back home to watch the last Yankee playoff game. They sadly did not win, and Fabio was SO disappointed. Poor guy. Maybe next year!

Sunday

Sunday began with meal planning, and then Fabio and I headed off to the grocery store.

Unfortunately, I spent most of the rest of the day working, but I took a break at 4:30 to start making dinner (we’re having meatloaf tonight! I don’t know if we like meatloaf, but I guess we’ll find out!). And now I’m relaxing while it finishes in the oven.

Work is probably going to be crazy again this week, but I’ll try to pop in again if I can. Hope you have a great Monday!

Question of the day: Meatloaf lover or hater?

Fabio claims he’s a hater, but I’m trying to win him over. I’m the least picky eater on the planet.

Hi friends! I’m still alive – just insanely busy at work. It’s been really hard for me to arrive home at like 8 p.m. and then make dinner and sit down to blog, but hopefully things should be calming down soon. November is right around the corner, which means our American Diabetes Month campaign will […]

Family Weekend!

This weekend was exactly what I needed after a super stressful week at work. My coworker Carly and I were able to finish up a big deliverable on Friday afternoon, which meant I didn’t have to do any work over the weekend. Hooray! I left the office in the best mood ever and couldn’t wait […]

It’s 7:51 p.m., and I just got home from work (well – I came home from work, immediately changed into pjs, and then sat down to write this post). Life is super busy right now, and though I’m enjoying it, it doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for the old blog here. Take yesterday […]

A Saturday to Myself

Hey there, and happy Monday to you! I’m actually writing this on Sunday morning, which is fairly unusual for me. I’ve got my favorite cooking shows on in the background and Jack is snuggled up close nearby, and since I had some free time I figured I’d sit down and get this blog post knocked […]

Little did I know my amazing bridesmaids had an awesome surprise up their sleeves! After dinner, presents, and photos by the river, I was brought inside where I […]

Birthday Celebrations at the Bay

**Edited to add: I woke up this morning to the devastating news about the shooting in Las Vegas. My heart is broken by the evilness, and my thoughts and prayers are with anyone who was affected. <3 Hello there, and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun weekend! Ours was mostly spent […]

SweatBox Review & My 28th Birthday

On Wednesday this week, I celebrated my 28th birthday! It was a really perfect day, and it started off with an awesome sweat session with Anne and her friend Kath at SweatBox! I’d heard about SweatBox a few months ago from someone else who had tried it out, and I was immediately intrigued! Then when […]

Oktoberfest in New York City

Fabio and I got home from New York at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, meaning there wasn’t much time for me to sit at the computer and get a blog post together. That was ok though because we had one of the most memorable weekends in a long time! A while back, I planned a weekend […]

Wedding Weekend: Rehearsal Dinner Part 1

One of my favorite parts about having a blog is getting to relive some of my most favorite memories, and our rehearsal dinner was one of them. It just such a wonderful, happy day! As I mentioned in my last recap, we had our photographer take some photos of us during the rehearsal dinner instead […]
