A no plans weekend.

So this past weekend was unlike any weekend I've had in a long long time. I simply went with the flow. There were no real plans of any sort and ohemgeee was it amazing. I highly recommend this kind of weekend, I feel like it does a body good (sort of like milk, but oh so much better, haha)

So Friday at work was pretty amazing. We had a taco stand come and we all hung outside for lunch. Then a couple hours later we had a happy hour at work drinking Pacifico and some other beer I had never tried and man was it awesome. The whole office just seemed at ease and not stressed (and hell why should we? it was Friday and we were having beer). After work I headed over to Matt's house where we had no plans. No plans whatsoever. It was lovely. We decided to head out to dinner and went here, where my every part of my meal had some sort of cheese involved and I'm pretty sure my arteries were fully clogged by the end of it, haha, but man was it worth it. Afterwards we headed back to his dad's house, enjoyed some wine and TV before headin to bed...talk about lovely.

Saturday oh Saturday. Matt and I started the all and mighty apartment search! Squeeee. I felt like such a grown up looking at places (if even just from the outside) and calling landlords. Unfortunately we didn't get to see too many places, but we did nix a bunch so that helped. And we have a whole new list to check out for this week/weekend, so we are set and I am excited. After an afternoon of apartment searching I was beat. So we basically spent the night in, hanging out, drinking wine, having dinner and watching some movies. We also watched some of Matt's family videos...basically hilarious. Matt and his brothers were some creative kids. And in a nutshell, my kind of night.

Sunday was just as lovely. My only planned event of the weekend, my youngest brothers birthday party. A very fun time hanging out with family, eating pizza, cupcakes, and all sorts of other junk (oh yes I went to the gym today, haha). After the familypalooza and a nice little nap, I went to see Mama Mia! with my mom, Matt and his mom. It was such a fun movie. Although I probably would have rethought some of the singing choices (ummmPierce?) I thought it was a good time. And how awesome would it have been to be a costume designer on that one?! I mean all the sparkles and glitter and ruffles!? Amazing! It would be like Halloween all day long! And the songs...yeah I can't get "Dancing Queen" out of my head, haha. I guess it's not a bad one to have in there since all I want to do is dance around now...and go to Greece.

So anyhoo that was my weekend and although I have no pictures or went to any crazy parties, it was perfect and just what I needed. And how was your weekend?

oooh and I'm guest blogging over at well-intentioned heartbreaker's place today where I ramble about posts that could be posts, weird I know. So check. it. out.

happy monday!

No plans weekends are the best kind of weekends!

I was sick so I didn't do anything. It was a huge bummer weekend.

Lacey Bean said...

Seriously, sometimes the weekends where you have no plans and just go with the flow are the best. :)

Good luck apartment hunting!!

Lexiloo said...

I SO want to see Mamma Mia!!!

brandy said...

I really enjoyed Mamma Mia. I mean, Pierce's singing was .... horrible but seriously? Meryl Streep made up for him. And the costumes?! And COLIN FIRTH! I actually laughed far more watching it than I would have predicted.

Binary Blonde said...

I LOVE those type of weekends. I haven't had one like that in a long time, but maybe soon...

That's so exciting that you are apartment shopping. Hope you find one that you like ASAP. :)

I love lazy weekends... They are the best!!

Hillary said...

I think I would enjoy my job a lot more if we had taco Friday.

B2G said...

I had a weekend a lot like that, and it was great.

Wickedly Scarlett said...

That sounds like an incredible weekend!! Good luck with the apartment search :) And yeah, I haven't seen Mamma Mia yet, and am DYING to, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why Pierce Brosnan is in it...

dmb5_libra said...

those are the best kind of weekends! sounds like you had a good one :)

i spent mines hanging out at my sister's and her fiances place in the city. nice little lazy get away (and i'm almost caught up with a month of blog inactivity, hooray!)

Carrie said...

I think this is the first time I've read a weekend recap on your blog that wasn't about your action packed party-hopping. Sounds like a lovely little weekend though!

Phil said...

Haha that's the story of the last two weeks for me. But that's what goes with the territory after your honey has surgery. It's actually kinda nice.

And totally agreed, though the only odd voice I found in Mamma Mia! was Pierce Brosnan's. What on earth was going on with that falsetto baritone-ish sound of his?

Sarah Marie said...

tacos and beer at work? too cool!!! im so glad you got to see mamma mia! Yay! so good!!!

Auburn Kat said...

Sometimes you need to have a weekend like that to just relax!!! I want to see that movie....I haven't been to a movie in forever..

Tipp said...

I LOVE watching old home movies. It is the best!

Bayjb said...

Sometimes a no-plan weekend is the best, especially after BlogHer :) Hmm I've heard Pierce's voice isn't so great in the movie, but I'd still see it. Glad you liked it!

Princess.Maria said...

L Sass said...

I am so glad that someone else enjoyed the over-the-top dumbness that was Mamma Mia! Sure, Pierce B. can't sing, but it's still FUN!

Playful Professional said...

I like the way you put it- it's a fun movie. I would've loved to be in the movie but didn't love watching it even though I really enjoyed the musical.

glamour girly said...

These are also my favorite kind of weekends! I finally got to have one last weekend.

Kareer Woman said...

Yeah, I can't wait to buy Mamma Mia when it comes out!
