Recapping the Weekend

I am begrudgingly typing this up on this late Monday afternoon. I'm not sure why, but all I want to do today is just lay around and watch hours of Love It or List It on HGTV, pathetic I know. Well I figured since I did have a pretty productive weekend, it wouldn't be right if I didn't blog about it right?!

Well let's see, my best friend who got engaged a couple weeks ago decided they wanted to get court married so all of us joined them to watch them get married (legally). Her actual wedding ceremony won't be until next year, but legally they are married. It called for a fun day trip down to the city to city hall and lunch afterwards. It was awesome that I was able to be there to watch my friends say their I do's since we all know I'm a sucker for love. Afterwards we headed over to chef Rick Bayless' restaurant Xoco, a mexican restaurant with a twist. The food was really good and I recommend anyone going there if you get a chance.

After heading back home, I was excited that my package from Stella & Dot was finally here!!! I didn't mention this on the blog, but I was the lucky winner of Bella's $200 Stella & Dot giveaway and I went right to shopping as soon as I could. I was able to get some incredible pieces that I adore!!

I never thought out of 2500+ entries, mine would be the lucky one, but I'm loving that I won and was able to get some stunning jewelry and a gorgeous scarf!! If you want to pick up any of these pieces or tons of others, head over to Bella's blog for more info!!

Friday evening a bunch of us friends went out to celebrate our friends' new wedding at the place where they had their first date, Stir Crazy! The food and company was awesome and I had a blast during dinner, but definitely called it a night afterwards.

I also loved my fortune from that night, I think it's pretty fitting since I'm in a "new relationship".

Saturday I woke up early and wanted to take advantage of the sun shining outside. I cleaned up the deck and set out some of our patio furniture to lounge, that is until a critter was bugging me far too much. I think I soaked up a little bit of sunshine though.

The rest of the day was spent shopping for all the groceries and last minute things I needed for my friends bridal shower the following weekend.

Sunday morning I went to brunch with some friends and then picked up some baking supplies and spent the rest of the day baking, drinking wine, and watching Bridget Jones' Diary. It was the perfect girls day and wonderful way to end the weekend.

I also slacked on another aspect, the winner of my giveaway is Kate!!! Congrats girly, I'll be sending you an email shortly!!

How was everyone's weekend? Linking up with Lisa & Bella for weekend recap and Rachael & Lisa for weekly wrap up.
