Quite a "Heart"y weekend.

Oh a weekend that was productive, I almost forgot what that was like. I swear I've been sick forever and finally not being confined to the couch was definitely a good thing.

Friday: After work I headed to my father-in-law (god that is still weird to write)'s house to meet up with Matt and our friend Danny and his girlfriend Amanda. After a bit we headed on over to Gus's for dinner and ohmyfreakinggoodness it was delicious. I had a pulled pork tostada and I've decided I could eat that every day and with a sangria on the side, heaven! Pretty much it was a fun night hanging with friends and family and a perfect way to celebrate the end of the week.

Saturday: Despite the morning rain Matt and I had quite the "married day" as I called it and did all sorts of productive things. I bought birthday presents (my sister and brother both have birthdays this week), picked up a library book, printed pictures (yay!) and got some new pajama pants from Victoria's Secret that I pretty much want to live in (I am not even kidding these pants are heavenly!). After shopping I relaxed a bit at home, watched some TV, napped while Matt went to watch some college football. Eventually we were social together and went to Dave and Buster's to celebrate my sister's birthday. That place is pretty ridiculous, fun and tasty food and delicious drinks. All in all it was a fun night of playing games and birthdayness, woo.

Sunday: Relaxed at home for a bit before heading over to the W Hotel in Hollywood with my sister for a day about heart health awareness sponsored by my lovely friends at Nintendo. The afternoon was pretty fun, my fried Megan came as well and Jenn was there and we all played some Wii games and had some tasty snacks. Eventually we had lunch and listened to a panel that shared some facts with us and answered questions, it was actually pretty fascinating. After the panel we played some more Wii, had some delicious fruit and hung out a bit before heading on home.

The rest of the night was spent hanging out before heading to my parent's house for dinner. After dinner was a little birthday shindig for my brother and sister with the family. It's always a good time when my family gets together and Sunday was no different with cake and cider and laughs and ridiculous teenagers.

can't you see the family resemblance, haha?

It was nice to spend some time with the fam and relax and eat sugary foods and just yes.

And that my friends is what I call a productive and loverly kind of weekend, the perfect kind in my mind.

And how was your weekend? Anything fun and wonderful? Staying warm?

happy monday!

I love busy weekends! It's always nice to spend quality time with family :) I feel like I haven't seen mine in a few weeks now & I'm looking forward to our next fam dinner. Also if it helps, I'm not used to having a sister-in-law yet either! (My brother's wife)... It is kind of fun to say though, isn't it?! :)
