Weekend Snapshots

Happy Monday everyone!

This was probably the first weekend in over a month that I felt super productive and super relaxed at the end of Sunday night.

Last Thursday was our 10-year wedding anniversary, so I got to enjoy these beautiful roses all weekend.

Saturday night, Gary made us reservations at Bistro 234, our favorite anniversary restaurant. It’s fun to get gussied up for a special meal every once in awhile, don’t you think?

We enjoyed a bottle of Healdsburg Chardonnay, sea scallops, prime angus filet, AND a flourless chocolae cake for dessert.

Holy food heaven, Batman!ย We savored every bite.

After we got home, I made sure to be in my pj’s no later than 8:30 and we watched the original Jurassic Park with my dad. I haven’t seen it in years and forgot about some of the scenes. What a great movie!

Sunday morning started with a fantastic breakfast –ย 
I added a few eggs to this and it satisfied us for hours.

Then we spent the late morning and early afternoon cleaning and going through some of my mom’s old things.

By 5 we were ready to relax, so Gary BBQ’d up some chicken thighs using this recipe. My dad cut up some fresh zucchini from the garden for me to cook and we nuked some sweet potatoes.


It was the perfect meal to end such a great weekend!

Let’s Chat
What did you do this weekend?

  11. Great weekend! Happy anniversary!

    This weekend, I worked, went to a work event, and had some alone time to catch up on some movies (I watched Jupiter Ascending and Wish I Were Here – both fantastic in their own ways).

    I have seen all the Jurassic Park movies, and I believe I have read all the Crichton books. Because I’m a nerd that way. ๐Ÿ™‚
