Sorry the recap is a bit late… I’ve been a little under the weather for the past day-ish. The weekend overall was wonderful, though!
1. Friday- highlight was by far was when we saw Maisie tilting her head at this one commercial on Fox. We replayed it over until it wasn’t as funny to us- and then we decided to videotape her, which made it even more funny.
2. Saturday- we went to see The Hunger Games at the Mez theater in Charlotte’s Epicenter. It’s basically like a movie theater/club – and while I hate clubs, it was sort of cool to leave the theater (filled with assigned seats in huge recliner-like chairs with drink service- yes, really)- disoriented from the movie into a raging scene a la South Beach.
Here’s some pictures and a few captions of what we did as well… also sorry for the iphone pictures… we don’t seem to bring the big Nikon camera with us that often on random weekend excursions…
Window shopping on Saturday… see that Boston Terrier print? We’re going to be those old people with Boston Terrier towels, I’m convinced.
Speaking of, Maisie had her annual vaccine and bloodwork done, which involved not two but four pricks since she was so surprised by the whole thing. Poor thing slept and shook and favored her left shoulder all Saturday… so the baby was allowed to sleep with us that night. This is Maisie first thing Sunday morning (on a pillow, no less). She’s such a princess.
Saturday is cheat day for our (well, Dave’s) diet. We stopped in Hickory Tavern in the Metropolitan in Charlotte and enjoyed some oysters and a couple Fat Tire beers.
Ok, so this was from Thursday- but my article for Inventor’s Digest ran! If I can figure out how, I’ll link to it for you.
Wow. I’m totally out of order here, huh? Friday night I had a couple glasses of chardonnay and decided to watch Dirty Dancing. It’s by far one of my favorite movies of all time. I love the misunderstood, incommunicable Johnny and innocent, naive Baby.
And last, but not least, I went to Paper Twist for my new notebook (finally!). I ended up with cards in the Snow & Graham hydrangea print (they didn’t have the notebook) and a Russell + Hazel white notebook. They had the store all decked out in Russel + Hazel organizational/desk supply things (binders- including mini ones- and including the one I blogged about here, as well as recipe organizers, pretty file folder boxes and binder insert sheets and dividers that were all so. pretty.) I’m gushing so I’ll stop- but at the end of the day, I went for the crisp white notebook. I guess minimalist + spring finally caught up with me.
Annnd… that was the weekend! I’m feeling better tonight… although my head is pounding & it’s taken me quite awhile to write this silly little post so I’m going to call it a night. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well!
I bought the hat.
