I have really started to covet the peace and serenity that comes with an uneventful weekend. Rob and I are at that age where it seems that everyone is getting married or having events. These events quickly fill up our weekends and it's nice to just have a weekend full of nothing to do. This past Saturday was the first Saturday I've had off in a long time that wasn't occupied with a wedding or driving to another state for an event.
Rob and I love weekends (Sundays especially) because we can enjoy doing things that we truly love like spending time with our dogs, walking, going to our favorite places, and just being us.
Saturday we started out our weekend by taking our dogs out to a local park for a walk. Unfortunately for Miss P, this park was full of strollers, bikers, other dogs, and geese (have I mentioned that Miss P has anxiety attacks at bypassers?) This made for an eventful walk.
We then headed over to our favorite Indian restaurant that we tend to frequent quite often. Their daily buffet is to-die-for, right down to their traditional Indian dessert of kheer (rice pudding) and Indian bread balls (not sure what the proper Indian name is, they're dipped in sugar syrup and are amazing). I am also addicted to the Chai Tea ... mmmmm ....
We ended Saturday night by grilling some salmon and steak that we got at Fresh Market. We have really grown to love eating out on our deck.
Today we had our weekly trip to the grocery store, where I just had to have a little treat for myself, which I promptly made as soon as we got home:
That brings me to tonight, where I am writing to you all with a lovely cup of coffee to awaken myself at this late hour. I have been going to bed sooo early lately. It's almost depressing going to bed so early. I have decided to intervene tonight by having coffee ... hope it doesn't keep me up too late!
Did I mention that you all are amazing? Seriously, I was so torn between those two dresses and honestly, I was this close to ordering the long maxi dress until I saw y'alls overwhelming vote for the ruffle dress. Look what I picked up this weekend:
So glad I asked everyone ... I love this dress :)
