On Friday, we grilled out and just relaxed. I went to bed surprisingly early and felt so much better when I woke up on Saturday. We ate breakfast at one of our favorite spots, Art's, on Saturday morning and then I forced Corey to drive by our new neighborhood on our way back to our apartment. I make him do this pretty much every Saturday. Its been just a patch of dirt every time we've been by but Saturday we noticed some progress - which had me giddy for the rest of the day.
We headed back to the apartment and picked up Riley to take him to the Whitewater Center for a hike. The weather was finally nice enough that he could walk without getting too overheated.
We rewarded ourself for our workout with a stop at the Biergarten afterwards. I had my first pumpkin beer of the season, which made me a happy, happy girl.
We cooked at home on Saturday night and had some wine. It was a perfect, relaxing evening after weeks and weeks of craziness. On Sunday, my sweet hubby helped me clean every inch of our apartment for the guests we will be hosting the next two weekends. Then, we headed to Midwood Smokehouse for some barbecue. For something we missed so much when we lived in New Jersey, we really haven't had much barbecue since we returned.
Then, on our way home I spotted this sign.
We were actually on our way to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte across the street at Starbucks when the Rita's sign caught my eye. I just knew I had to have a gelati, which is the Italian ice and custard blend. I would get these maybe 3 or 4 times a year when we lived in New Jersey but they were so, so good so I knew I had to take advantage of the opportunity since we haven't seen many Rita's here.
Corey dragged me to a sporting goods store on our way home from lunch and I spotted a Michael's in the same shopping center so I popped in to pick up some supplies for my fall wreath. My mom and I got this owl with the intention of making a fall wreath for my old townhouse in Greenville and then I just never got around to it so I spend the rest of my afternoon crafting and relaxing with my hubby and a certain fluffy pup.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
