How was your weekend? Mine was really social and really sunny! That is a great combo! I am happy to link up today with Heather, Tanya, and more here.
Friday after my last class, I headed to my deck to read in the sun! I forgot to tell you on Friday that I treated myself to my first pedicure in months Thursday afternoon with Essie’s Bikini So Teeny.
I got to see both boys briefly that afternoon for haircuts. Mason cut off his long hair for his play. He was sad to see it go but wants the play to be really good.
Tom and I went to dinner just the two of us for the first time in forever. We tried a new place called Diamond Street Grub.
I had a dragonfruit margarita.
And, we got fish for me and nachos for Tom. It was way too much food and food that doesn’t save well!
Saturday morning I cleaned out my china cabinet/liquor cabinet. It had gotten so disorganized.
And, I did my Easter/spring decor.
This weekend my high school friend Jim and his wife and two other couples that are friends of theirs and whom I didn’t know stayed in an Airbnb for Jim’s birthday. They invited us to join in their weekend fun – with basically as many breweries as they could visit!
I met up with them at rooftop bar Saturday late afternoon. Tom visited his parents so it was just me.
Then, we moved to a brewery and four more of our high school friends joined. Several of us live in Louisville because it is the closest big city to our hometown. This was in a cool courtyard in an area called NULU which means “new Louisville”.
High school friends Mike, Dan, and the birthday boy Jim. Dan told me he reads my blog daily, which is so sweet. He may be my only male reader. Hi Dan! He has two daughters, so maybe he can impress them with something he learns from me? Lol!
Wives – Kara, me, Katie, and Beth. Beth was also my high school friend.
Kara was excited to tell me she was wearing “the rule of three” and knew I would be proud.
I said goodbye around 8 because I had been hanging out since 5. Remember that introverted extrovert thing? I was tired. I would also like to mention that all of us were fully vaccinated except maybe one and it was a good feeling to finally take pictures together.
Sunday Tom and I met Jack with lunch to watch a baseball game at his college, because Tom and I enjoy baseball. He isn’t that into sports but he obliged us.
We tried a new fast food place called “Jaggers” owned by Texas Roadhouse.
It was nice to see all the people sitting on the hill watching the game.
We said goodbye to Jack and went to three more places with Jim and his friends. I got a bourbon slushie at one of the places.
Then, Tom and I took Jim and his wife back to their Airbnb and sat around and talked for a bit.
They had snacks and I brought guacamole and plantain chips and goat cheese spread and crackers.
Tom with a plantain chip. He thought they looked like tongues.
My friend Jim and his friends live in Cincinnati, Ohio which is only about 1.5 hours away. We made a pact to go visit them this year.
We were wiped out and headed home to our empty nest for a quick dinner and a couple of shows. We were outside for much of the day and the sun felt great, but it really took it out of us!
I hope you had a lot of sunshine, too! Any highlights?
Thanks for reading!
