weekend good things.

Wow what a fantastic three-day weekend! I spent most of it visiting friends and family, eating great food, and packing up our condo. 


On Friday night h and I stayed in and relaxed. It was a long work week so we just wanted to be lazy :)

On Saturday I did some pilates and h played the guitar. We cleaned up the condo and eventually made our way over to our friends house for dinner. Liz and her husband Joe are the photographers behind Coach House Pictures and they take amazing wedding and family photographs.
 I met Liz through blogging (yah!) and she is sooo sweet and seriously talented! She is going to start offering photography services for bloggers and she took a few photos of me! I can’t wait to see how they turned out. Liz and Joe recently traveled to Thailand for their honeymoon so we got to hear all about the trip AND eat two types of Thai tacos! SO good! Turns out Joe is also a pretty incredible cook too. H and I went home stuffed and happy.

On Sunday we headed out to the suburbs to my parents house for a family cookout. It was a beautiful day and wonderful to see my aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and some extended family. My uncles are hilarious (they are the ones photo-bombing the center pic of me and my mom above). We stopped by IKEA after the cookout and returned our dresser (it won't fit in our Charleston rental...luckily we never put it together!) Of course we didn't leave empty handed - we found the perfect media stand for our TV. IKEA wins every time. We ended the night with the mid-season finale of Mad Men...I really wish I didn't have to wait an entire year to find out how the series ends!

We spent the majority of Monday packing! Our boxes filled up fast - it's amazing how much stuff you can store in your kitchen and bathroom. We took a trip to goodwill to donate some things-- I am sure there will be more trips in the future (only 3.5 weeks until we move eeek!)! I ended the long weekend with some hot yoga (we should probably turn on the AC.) AND I snacked on lots of Oat My Goodness granola -- enter to win some here.

How was your weekend!?
