good things.

happy monday chickadees! how was your weekend?
mine was full of lots of good (and tasty) things.
friday: bowling party downtown...turns out i am a great bowler (when the bumpers are up and i have a few fancy drinks)
saturday: meeting with the florist to talk centerpieces and bouquets (more about that on wednesday!)
lunch with my parents (mmmm chicken pot pies are THE BEST)
seeing dougie (aka the cutest corgie) and izzy (she just loves to nap).
movie date! 50/50. JGL has come a long way since his 3rd rock from the sun days
homemade lemon orza with aspargus, tomatoes and feta (it was the first time i zested a lemon...whoa feeling grown-up!)
sunday skype date with marissa from the boot AND {av} from long distance loving
dinner with the family at pasta d'arte (a place we have wanted to go to since we saw it on the show check, please!) the restaurant was a bit of a drive but the portions were HUGE and it was pretty tasty!

xo,
jillian
