A Spontaneous Weekend!

 

Parrish and I had a great weekend!

We kicked it off on Friday night, with a movie:

The Hangover Part 2! I have to say that it wasn’t as funny as the first, but it was still hilarious!

Saturday morning I woke up super early so that I could mow the grass before the real heat of the day came. I know most folks dread mowing, but I actually love it!

PLUS, I was looking forward to lunch with my handsome hubby:

at one of our favorite spots:

weekend 008

Tyler’s Tap Room @ The American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham

I love the Tobacco Campus! We sat outside, and since I had mowed the lawn, I treated myself to a refreshing cocktail:

Peach Sweet Tea Cocktail – YUM!

And since we were already downtown, we decided to see if there were tickets to the Durham Bulls baseball game that night.

weekend 014

Yes!

We’re pretty lucky to have such a nice ballpark right in our downtown, and even luckier to have a pretty good minor league team!

weekend 017

And even though we didn’t win, Parrish and I still had a super fun time!

And the cocktails continued with this…

weekend 019

$6.00 tiny, baby sip of wine!

Our seats were underneath an awning, directly underneath a HUGE fan, so the temperature was actually perfect! I could have sat there all night!

Sunday I spent most of the day wrapping up loose ends, and prepping veggies for lunches this week. I like to pre-cut most everything, that way I save time and have no excuse not to eat my veggies!

Sunday afternoon I went to a new book club with some new friends that was so much fun! We discussed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I had been dying to talk about with someone!! Fun fact, did you know that the Swedish title was actually: Men Who Hate Women !? I was surprised!
