Weekend Recap 6.27.16.. Boating, Brunch and a Date Night!

Hi there! Happy Monday to you!  I hope your week is going well so far!  I got in a run at 4am today, which is a big struggle for me on a Monday, so I am pretty happy about that!  Only 2 days of work this week before we are off for a long weekend with family for the 4th of July.  It was so nice to have a weekend at home with not much on the agenda.  We ended up doing a lot, but it was all fun and relaxing.  And I got my house vacuumed, mopped, dusted, organized and back in order, which is a great way to start the week!

Friday afternoon we took it easy with a short walk with the pups and a little cuddling.  Then this happened…. Otis fell asleep with Callie sleeping on top of him.  They literally slept like this for 30 minutes.  My husband and I took a million pictures because it was just too funny.  They are the best of friends.  


Friday night we ate a quick dinner of a bunch of leftovers… kale salad, spaghetti squash with pesto and roasted sweet potatoes.  Around 8pm, we went to our neighbor’s house for a little get together.  They made homemade spicy margaritas and sangria and loves of delicious snacks.  We played a few games, met some new friends, and had a blast.  


Late Saturday morning we headed out to the boat with our friend and the pups.  It was a beautiful day and the water was amazing! 

The boys and the pups.  (Our doggies love being on the boat.)

Riley and I enjoyed floating in the water for a while.  It was so refreshing!


Saturday night my husband and I had plans to use up a gift card at our favorite restaurant, HG Supply Co.  We started out with the ahi tuna appetizer and it was to die for!! It was paired with avocado over a seaweed salad.  


I got my usual make-your-own-bowl with mushroom quinoa pilaf, roasted brussel sprouts, grilled salmon, and guacamole and my husband got the burger!


Date nights are very important to us and we make a priority to have one almost every week.  It is nice to get a little dressed up and get out of the house together.  Love this guy! 


Sunday morning we met up with my husband’s aunt and uncle and some of their family friends for brunch to celebrate my husband’s aunt’s birthday!  We went to Boulevardier, a little French restaurant in a cute area of town called Bishops Arts District.  


I got a huge omelette with tons of veggies and it was so tasty!!


My husband and I with Aunt Nanci, the birthday girl! 


The whole crew! 


After brunch my husband went to play in a tennis match while I went home and cleaned the house.  Late afternoon we headed out with another friend for a short boat cruise.  The boys wake-boarded and I cheered them on while sipping some champs from the boat. 😉 

Fun in the sun with my sweet girl.  She is a momma’s girl, that is for sure.  


We were pretty tired last night so it was early to bed for a 4am alarm clock for a run before work.  I hope you all had an amazing weekend too and let’s make this week a great one!


  1. Tell me about your weekend!  What did you do?
  2. Have you tried any new restaurants near you lately? 
  3. If you have a significant other, how often do you guys get to do a date night?

  2. Your pup is SO cute. Props to you on getting up so early to run! That is one thing that is tough for me. Your weekend sounds like so much fun too. Being out on a boat in the sun with friends is the best. This weekend I worked, hung with cousins, and watched the gymnastics meet on tv and the olympic trials with friends!
