Oh what a summerful busyful weekend.

Summer, I love you. Have I said that already? Because really I do. Even if I'm melting in my apartment as I write this I still love the summertime and the summertime weekends that come with it. And oh what a summer weekend this was...

Friday: After work I headed home and Matt and I had a mini BBQ with some chicken and lots of wine. It was quite nice and relaxing. We even busted out the Wii for some fun competitiveness. Basically it was a great way to wind down from the week and I loved it.

Saturday: Oh what a busy day. Woke up earlyish and headed over to Say Cheese for the cupcake meetup hosted by the fabulous Tara. Got to try some delicious cupcakes like peanut butter, peppermint and pound cake which was awesome (I think the PB ones were my favorite). After the meetup I headed over to Matt's mom's house to swim. Yay swimming! Seriously I'd been wanting to go swimming for weeks so it was lovely to finally do so especially with Matt, my neighbor and even my sister. After some good swim time I headed over to a friend's bridal shower. It was the first one I'd ever been to so I was excited to go (plus I was excited to see my elementary school friends). All in all it was a great shower and tons of fun and I'm glad I got to go.


Me and two girls I've known 18 years!
So crazy.
But heart them all the same.

After the bridal shower I came home to meet up with my college friend Alli who drove up from San Diego! Even though I had just seen her last month I was pretty pumped to hang out with her. And what did we end up doing? Eating pizza, drinking wine, playing the Wii and laughing all night long. It was loverly.


Alli and I posing with the Wii remotes, haha oh boy


Yeah I couldn't keep a straight face


And finally a normal one, heart

Sunday: After sleepin in a bit me, Matt and Alli headed to some delicious breakfast. I love breakfast, seriously it's the best meal of the day. After breakfast Alli headed back home and Matt and I headed to the Dodger game with my mom and brother. Woo Dodgers! Our seats were amazing in the loge level and everything. Even though the game wasn't that great and we lost I still had a great time... and know Matt and my brother did too, haha.


oh my brother is so silly


and so is my fiance, haha

After the game we headed back to my parent's house and drank some margaritas and enjoyed another Michael special. Seriously I saw every Michael special this weekend, I couldn't help it. I miss him, my mom misses him and I can't help watching his videos and singing his songs still.

Basically I spent the rest of the night with Matt watching Transformers and the BET awards (yeah I had to watch the Michael tributes) and it was quite nice.

And how was your weekend? Any summering it up?



happy monday!

Julie Q said...

in light of sad MJ news, my first reaction to when you said you watched a 'michael special' was something NBC did for Michael Scott of the office. yeah, my mind is in the gutter :)

Summer is PERFECT for margaritas. We've been blending up some great peach margaritas, and sipping them on the porch.
