A sunsational weekend.

I almost forgot how much I love spending time outside, but this weekend definitely reminded me of that and I can't wait to get back out there.

Friday: After a lovely day at work I headed home and Matt and I headed to dinner at Bar Louie. It was quite a fun looking place, sort of reminded me of Yard House which was fun but their mac and cheese definitely did not live up to the one at Yard House. After dinner Matt and I met up with his brother and our neighbor to see Alice in Wonderland. I liked the movie, but I didn't love it. Basically I think I need to see it again to appreciate it more.

Saturday: After a nice morning work out (I'm looking at you Wii Fit/EA Active) Matt and I were on our way to Palm Desert. Seriously the drive was gorgeous, the sun was shining, there was snow on the mountains and it was just loverly.



Once we got to Matt's aunt's house we hung out for a little bit before heading to Matt's cousins' house. We spent some time hanging out at their house before heading to lunch and talking about our wedding ceremony because Matt's cousins will be officiating. It was fun to get to know them and talk wedding and all that jazz and just have a good time all around.

After lunch we went back to Matt's aunt's house and hung out for a bit and did some walking before heading to this aweosme steak house, Sullivan's, for dinner. Basically it was all sorts of amazing and delicious and I'm salivating just thinking about it again. It was a fun time hanging out with just Matt and his aunt since every other time we're together there are about three times more people and it can get a little hectic.

Sunday: Slept in a bit before having some breakfast with Matt's aunt before heading on home. It was definitely another perfectly sunny and wonderful day for a drive and a walk, which is what we did at the Rose Bowl when we got home. Basically we spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and watching TV and what not and yelling at my computer that just didn't want to work (and still doesn't, ahhhhh someone fix it please!!).

All in all it was a lovely weekend and I am so excited about Daylight Savings and the fact that I'll have a sunny drive home after work today, wahoo!

And how was your weekend?



happy monday!

Ah, I adore Palm Springs! My grandparents used to have a condo there and we'd spend a few weeks there each year when I was growing up. So delightful :)

Happy Daylight Savings! I'm so ready for brighter evenings!!

I used to bartend at Bar Louie! Any place with tots is okay by me.

There are Bar Louie's in Chicago and in Wisconsin and I like to go there. Sure, I had an awful dinner experience once but I still like it. But not in WI where you can smoke there. Ick.

*sigh* Palm Springs is on my "must-visit" list of cities. everything just seems so much more beautiful there.

Oh, sounds nice!

I did a whole lotta nada this weekend. Well, unless you count praising the sunshine for staying out longer! :)

I love it when its warm out. We had a taste of spring towards the end of last week, but now its cold and rainy again.

Patty said...

Sounds like you had an excellent weekend, I almost went to see Alice but it was sold out.

Emma said...

What a great weekend! I love Bar Louie =) Also, I have heard that about Alice..which makes me sad because the Disney version is one of my favorite movies. Need to go see it! Hope you're well! ;) xoe

my friends and I always go the Bar Louie by our place. Our friend is the manager so it's a frequent summer spot for us.

I haven't seen Alice in Wonderland either, so I'll reserve judgment.
