Wedding Planning + Good Eats {Weekend}

How was your weekend? Mine has been great!

I started my weekend early, on Friday morning. I decided earlier this week to take a random vaca day off work. I wanted to take it easy while I can, because two of my two co-workers are going on maternity leave soon. Good timing, because one of them ended up having her babies (yep, twins) early…ON Friday! They are too cute.

I spent the day relaxing until lunchtime, then did some chores and laundry, and worked on wedding stuff all afternoon. Almost ready to send out our Save the Dates. Yay! I am also an uber web design nerd and am pretty excited to start making our wedding website… 🙂

Friday night, one of our closest friends {and best man in our wedding} came up to visit. We went out to dinner for some burgers and beers. Not sure if that’s the best pre-long run fuel, but it seemed to work out okay. Must have been the curly fries. Early to home for a movie and bed for me, while the boys went out.

I watched “The Place Beyond the Pines.” I had heard it was a great movie, plus it has Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper in it.

Yesss. Beyond the eye candy, it was a good story; not one that necessarily left you feeling all warm & fuzzy inside, but not depressed either—just thoughtful. I’d certainly recommend it if you like a good drama.

Saturday, I got up and ran my long run from hell. Okay, it wasn’t that bad, but it was tough.

After I got home, I showered, ate, and laid around for a couple hours watching TV and reading my newest book, The Kite Runner. I was beat. I finally made myself just go take a nap so I could get some energy to do something fun for the day.

Matt and I ended up going out to dinner at a new {to us} place. I got an “Old Cuban” cocktail, made with rum, mint and champagne {think mojito, all grown up}. The food was delicious: We had crab wontons to start, then fish tacos and stuffed grouper as our mains.

The service was great, but it seemed a little over-priced for this area. On the plus side, I felt like I could probably make both dishes at home with some experimentation, so fish tacos is on the menu for sometime this week!

I had really wanted dessert all day {specifically, a bug fudgy brownie} so we stopped by the store on the way home and I got some mix to whip some brownies up. Matt wanted vanilla ice cream, which led me to discovering this thing of beauty:

Haagen Dazs Peanut Butter Pie ice cream

I’ve died and gone to heaven.

OMG. My favorite dessert ever, peanut butter pie, in ice cream form? Yes.

Favorite dessert: Brownie Sundae!

I combined that with my homemade brownies for the best desert in the history of the world. Or at least, this weekend.

And this is the point of the post where I tell you that I am going on a diet this week. Haha! But seriously. It’s happening.

A few more things to be excited about:
I’m only a couple posts away from my 100th blog post. Woo!
And only a few Twitter followers away from 200… Follow me!
