Good morning!!! How was your weekend? Ours was one for the books!! On Friday, I drove to Arkansas with a friend and my two puppies to meet my husband (he was already there for work) at our friends’ house to surprise them for their birthdays (they both had birthdays on Saturday)!! It was such a fun surprise and we had a busy weekend with lots of plans!
After we arrived to our friends’ house on Friday afternoon, we had a cocktail on their beautiful porch!
The pups were happy to be out of the car!
A big group of us went to out to dinner and I got the beet salad, which was delicious!
Me and the birthday boy!
After dinner we hung out at the house while playing some games. All the girlies!
Our best attempt at a group picture Friday night.
Saturday morning started bright and early with a run around the neighborhood. Our friends live in a neighborhood with a ton of hills so I was pretty sore from my run. I had to ice my shins when I got home last night.
After we got ready, we headed to Arsaga’s for brunch! I got the kale salad and two scrambled eggs and it hit the spot!
The girls after brunch!
After brunch we wondered around the college town and did a little shopping at a cute boutique. I got 3 new casual dresses for our upcoming trip!
After a little shopping, we came home and took a long walk with the pups and relaxed a bit before heading to Gloss to get our nails done while the boys played golf!
After our nails were nice and pretty, we headed to pick up a few things from the store to grill for dinner. We grilled salmon, burgers, and lots of veggies. We dinner we sang happy birthday to our friends and cut the cake! It was a milestone birthday for our friend Rachel. How cute is this cake that her fiance got?
They blew out the candles (my friend Rachel and her fiance have the same birthday!! How crazy is that??) and we watched as Rachel opened all her “gag” gifts! We all had quite a few laughs. 🙂
After dinner and gift opening, a bunch of their friends came over for a party at the house. It was really fun!! Then we headed to the bars for a little more fun. Our first stop was this bar called Shotz. The bar is known for its shots that are served in ice shot glasses that you throw on the ground after taking the shot. I don’t do shots, but loved watching everyone else! 🙂 After another bar and lots of dancing, we called it a night.
We headed back to Dallas Sunday morning. I drove the whole way while the boys slept…. I surprisingly had a lot of energy when we got home so after unpacking, doing the laundry, and taking the pups on a walk, I ran an easy 5 miles on the treadmill and ended up with over 18,000 steps for the day. I am pretty pleased with that number considering I was in the car for 5 hours!
I didn’t get a chance to do any grocery shopping yesterday (I avoid on Sundays if possible because it is so crowded) so we ordered thai food for dinner. These fresh salad rolls with peanut sauce were soo good.
We were wiped and headed to bed early. I made it to my Body Pump class this morning so my week is off to a great start!! I hope you guys had an amazing weekend and that your week is just as great!
