Memorial Day Weekend

Despite the fact that the holiday weekend snuck up on me this year, we still managed to have a pretty good time. I:

strawberry margaritas

+ Made and consumed a delicious batch of chicken wings with ranch sauce

guys at bar

+ Hit the pool. (I LOVE going to the pool.)

+ Affirmed my love for cilantro-jalapeno flavored beverages. I need to figure out how to make them at home.

girl and giant dog

+ Explored my neighborhood with David. We visited some cool parks and gardens, and played my favorite game, ‘pick your favorite house’ on our walks.

+ Caught up on my reading. Sort of..

mint colored penny tile

+ Visited with everyone’s families, which was fun! I always feel a little weird if I don’t see my family over Memorial/Labor Day.

+ Watched a ridiculous amount of Smash. It’s my new favorite guilty pleasure, and I have all the songs permanently stuck in my head.

+ Stayed up too late every night, and woke up early every morning, creating the perfect nap storm.

+ Watched Melancholia, and promptly regretted it. The 6 hour depression following the viewing of that film made it so not worth it.

+ Enjoyed early-evening bourbon milkshakes with good pals. It was a lovely close to the weekend.

What did you do this weekend? Did anyone else dress their dog up like a person?
