Last weekend I went to Summit Brewery with my cousin Erin and then we went to Moscow on the Hill for dinner. In hindsight, we should have done dinner first, then the brewery, but Summit closes at 8:00, so our time was limited. If you go to Moscow on the Hill, I highly suggest the Chicken Kiev. It was so delicious!
Sunday was a rather nice day. The weather was perfect and my parents were doing some chores around the house in preparation for their trip. While my dad replaced the gutters, me and my mom enjoyed some wine on the deck, raked some leaves and ended the day chatting in the porch.
Sometimes you just need that mother/daughter time to chat. Even though I live at home and see my parents every day, it's really not that often that we just sit down and chat. Between work, gym, chores/errands, cooking, there's not a whole lot of time during the day that we are together and can just talk about what's going on. This was the perfect day for just that.
This past week has been interesting. My parents left for Istanbul, Turkey on Tuesday so I've been running the house, taking care of the dogs, making dinner...wait, I always make dinner. There's just a different feel when it's just me and the dogs and I think the dogs notice it too.
Miley has been stuck to me and will not leave me alone. This is usually how we spend our time together now that I'm her only human around.
If I don't let her lay on me, she'll sit on the ottoman and wine until I make room for her. Such a spoiled little girl.
There really is not much to catch up on from this past weekend. I literally didn't do anything. Friday I make some spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, had a couple glasses of wine and was in bed by 9:30.
Saturday I asked everyone I know that wasn't already busy what they were doing, and everyone already had plans. Then I found a friend who sucked me in by offering pizza so I headed to the warehouse district for some Pizza Luce and a movie. Once again, home early to hang with the pups.
Since I didn't get my fill of socializing Saturday, I once again sent out a mass text asking if anyone wanted to have a little Sunday Funday and watch the Vikings get their ass handed to them once again. I ended up meeting an old friend in St. Paul at BWW which was perfect because had he not invited me, I was just going to go to the BWW by my house. I didn't know I was crashing a 'guys day' or a birthday celebration, but it all worked out. At least I knew a few of the guys that were there, so I didn't feel like a total party crasher.
I got home around 5:00, had a fire, watched some Hallmark movies and put myself to bed at 8:00. I am getting really old. I went to bed at 8:00 PM. Like, I was actually asleep at that time. But, it's Monday morning and I feel totally rested for this busy week ahead of me. M: Gym, T: Cocktail party at Chambers/LeMeridian, W: Gym, Th: Pack, F: Friends weekend at the ol cabin. Bring on the flannel and fur hats!
