This past weekend was busy, but so fun! I finally switched around my work schedule for my second job so I have Friday nights off and I can fully enjoy my weekends. The last few weekends have been consumed by yard work, and though they’ve felt so productive when the day is done, we needed to relax this weekend.
Friday night we went to a Mexican restaurant with some friends and just relaxed and had a great time. I enjoyed some rare margaritas, or maybe I should say margarita. When I ordered the 2 for 1 I wanted the smallest size, and Paul encouraged the medium (I never drink and cut loose, and he likes when I do). So I went for the size up, and after the first drink I was feeling it. While I was drinking the second margarita I could definitely tell that it was watered down, but I was assuming the ice was melting and I wasn’t drinking it fast enough. Come to find out the next day, Paul was a little worried I would end up a little too drunk, so while I wasn’t looking he drank my drink and filled it will water. Apparently, I had enough to drink that I really didn’t think much of it until he told me the next day. He just didn’t want me to have a headache the next morning…so thoughtful of him after encouraging the larger drink! Honey has jokes.
Saturday was a little early birthday celebration for me. I turn the big 2-5 tomorrow, but we started celebrating early. Paul told me earlier in the week to keep my Saturday open, and he ended up taking me to the mall to spend the day shopping to buy whatever I wanted. So sweet and thoughtful, and we had fun spending the day together. Then he told me we had reservations for dinner that night, and I got all excited and curious about where we were headed! We went to a local restaurant called Kool Beanz Cafe. It’s an eclectic little place and their menu is always changing. Well when we walked in, I hear “SURPRISE” and I turn to see a group of my friends waiting for me! We had a great night and my friends are so awesome at making events special! Paul and I apparently really liked planning surprises for each other this year 🙂
Sunday we went to church and after I finished worked in the nursery we headed out to the beach to meet Paul’s friend Griffin out at his parents beach house. It ended up raining most of the day, but it was really relaxing just to hang out on the deck with a great view of the marshes and the gulf right in front of us. Griffin’s family is so sweet and they are so much fun to hang out with.
So to make up for our last couple of busy weekends, we spent this weekend catching up on the relaxation part which was definitely needed. We will be headed out of town for the next two weekends so a nice relaxing weekend was just the ticket! Paul and I are truly blessed to be surrounded by such great people, and a weekend like this one just helps see that so clearly.
