Weekend-o-lovely.

Monday? Again? Already? Okay I guess. At least the weekend was great...and goooo!

Friday: Work was work. Then I came home and Matt and I went out for a fantabulous date night. We went to Island's for dinner (seriously I love that place) then watched Wolverine. And oh man, I gotta say I loved Wolverine. I love the X-Men movies and I thought this was a great prequel, great special effects, hot guys (hello Hugh, we're friends, remember me? Nice job in the movie), awesomeness.


why hello there Hugh

After the movie Matt and I came home, relaxed, drank some wine and it twas loverly.

Saturday: Woke up earlyish and headed over to Santa Anita to see Matt's younger brother graduate from culinary school. For a graduation it wasn't too bad, they served food and beer, but you couldn't really hear any of the speakers and everyone in the audience talked the whole time. But hey it was a graduation and Matt's brother did it, so woo! Time to celebrate!

Matt, Brad the graduate and Ryan


the whole group celebrating


After the graduation Matt and I went home for a bit to relax and run some errands (yeah I know those two words don't go together but run with it, haha). Eventually we headed over to Matt's dad's house for dinner with everyone to celebrate. We got to eat some tastiness, watch some Robin Williams LIVE and just hang out. Twas loverly.

Once dinner was over we headed over to Michaela's family's house to drink some more, hang out some more, laugh some more, all in all hang out some more. After that Matt and I came home and watched some SNL (ohmygosh Justin is a SNL gem, love it all) and drank some wine. Another solid night.

Sunday: Happy Mother's Day!! Matt and I headed over to brunch with my family and my grandma and it was delicious, I mean who doesn't love brunch? Afterwards Matt and I headed over to Michaela's family's house again to go swimming. It was awesome. The weather was perfect, the pool was perfect, and Michaela has some of the cutest nieces ever, it was so much fun. After swimming I took my mom to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past as a Mother's Day treat and it was actually pretty cute. We headed home after the movie and my dad and Matt cooked dinner and it was delicious. Eventually Matt and I headed home for another lazy night of catching up on the DVR and drinking some wine.

All in all it was another pretty spiffy weekend (yeah I said spiffy what of it?) and I'm already counting down to the next one (but really I mean who doesn't do that? haha).

And how was your weekend? Enjoy the good weather? Drink some wine? Have some good times? Woo!






happy monday!

This weekend I tried to get my motorcycle rear brake fixed. It was cleaned and replaced on one of its parts. Unfortunately, it's still the same slippery as before. Ahh, I need to get a new motorcycle I guess :(

What a cool, relaxing way to spend the weekend.... Somehow I didn't drink any wine this weekend .... too busy w/my 3 adult-kids.... Had a great Mother's Day that started Saturday and ran into Sun.... If u have time u can read up on it...Anywho, I will tell u I received my very first Kate Spade handbag (anniversary edition).... My middle one gave it to me- a big jump from the days of handmade cards- which I still love....

It makes me zeaaaaaaaalouuus how you actually can have fun with your family and relatives, not that I'm not close with them..but I'm usually limited to mom dad and brothers..I get annoyed with people outside of them, not good.

It is so funny how everyone I talk to mentions brunch for mother's day. I don't know how those two things became linked, but perhaps it is the combination of being able to wake up late, and drink at breakfast!

Sounds like you had a great weekend. No wine here -- just a lot of dirt, weeds, and muddy feet & paws as we ripped up our backyard. Boy - I could have used some wine after all that!

Love your blog! Thanks for sharing!

Tada! said...

WHAT COLBIE IS PREGNANT! I DIDN'T KNOW THAT! Anyway, I hope they never bring Stella back. Her character ruins the show.

AquaSass said...

oh the wine. so delicious and satisfying.....for the first couple glasses...I drink white wine, but I need to stop. Red is better for you, lower in calories, and doent make your mouth go numb from tart after two glasses. Which do you drink?

How much cake do you eat each day

Annette said...

Hi. I just stumbled..well, actually didn't stumble...actually saw you on Blogs of Note. Congrats! One read and I am a fan! You sound like you are enjoying life and that is fun to read about. And wine? Who doesn't love wine? What is the world without a nice glass of wine? I see you are reading Janet Evonovich. Isn't she hysterical? I just start laughing out loud when I read her books and my husband just looks at me like I'm crazy...especially when I try to explain to him what it is that I am laughing about.
