Relaxed Weekend

The goal for this weekend was to relax. The bf and I have been running around like crazy, and this was the first weekend in a while that we didn't really have to do anything. It was glorious. We headed up to the wineries with the Manager to pick up the bf's wine club shipments. I discovered a new favorite wine...I like this one even better than ice wine! (and it's about $10 cheaper and double the volume too, which is nice) We followed up the wine trips with a delicious bbq lunch at Famous Dave's. It's not super close to us, so it's always a treat when we get to stop there. The evening was spent relaxing and hanging out down at the bf's house, getting the mini fence up for our puppy so she can be in the main part of the backyard.

Today was early to mass and delicious homemade breakfast burritos when we got home. It was a beautiful start to the morning. We finished up the other fencing bit so that the yard is puppy friendly. After, the bf took me and his mom to our favorite store, where I proceeded to NOT buy every item I put in the basket, which was nice. Kara had her puppy class. She was being stubborn today, and it's always a little discouraging for me when she refuses to listen to me. I can't blame her, she's around the bf a lot more than me. But I know we'll work it out, because I can out-stubborn her any day. That said, she's doing really well. She sits, shakes, lays down, gives high fives (this one is REALLY cool), and the bf taught her to play dead. It's super cute. We're working on rolling over and crawling. Coming on call just depends on the number of things distracting her. She's definitely my dog...shiny things are awesome :) The bf VOLUNTARILY wanted to watch Twilight last night, but we didn't have time. So he put it on tonight. I will never say no to watching that, especially when it's his idea.

All in all it was a lovely and relaxed weekend. We definitely needed that. Especially considering we're working for 12 days straight beginning tomorrow. It'll be fun, but definitely tiring. I'm hoping I'll have time to fit in at least a few posts. I also have pictures of my cousin's ring to share...we did a mini photo shoot when she was down here last weekend. Her ring is gorgeous!

Wow, I hope I can have a relaxing weekend like that again someday! Hope it gives you fuel for at least the next 12 days.

Jaina said...

Shellie - Thanks! I've got 1 day left before I can relax for a bit. I'm struggling, but I spent a lot of time driving yesterday and got home late, so that's half the problem. Thank you so much!

Hope you are planning yet another great weekend! Yay for long weekends.

I hope you made it through the 12 days of work and are enjoying some down-time now.

Sounds wonderful! So what was your new favorite wine you discovered? I love wine. I like the drier wines.

Jaina said...

OHmommy-Thanks! It was a good weekend, even if it wasn't exactly what we had planned and we got nothing accomplished. At least we weren't working, right?

Momo-I made it. There were a couple mornings I didn't think I was going to, but I did. This weekend was definitely well appreciated. :)

Yaya-It's a sweet wine called Sweet Surrender. I like it even better than ice wine, which is saying a lot. (best part is it's about $10 cheaper and you get twice as much since it's a full bottle)
