Good Friends. Good Neighbors.

And so it begins that time of year... baseball and softball are back and there are some weeks when the fiance and I just don’t see each other.  This was one of those weekends.  It’s sad and frustrating, but I remind myself that things could be worse.  At least I’m pouting because I like my fiance so much I want to hang out with him every day.  Not too shabby of a problem ;)

In fact, we like each other so much that he actually straightened up the house and made the bed before I got home on Friday.  You heard me right.  MADE THE BED!!!!  I almost fainted.  Bonus points for future hubs.  

Saturday was my dear friend’s birthday brunch, so I headed over solo.  I was a little bummed to show up alone, but it turned out to be super fun and such a nice day for it too!  She had the most adorable setup complete with a doughnut tower and chocolate fountain.  The bloody mary bar looked amazzzing and I wanted so bad to try one, but every time I think I want a bloody mary, I quickly realize that I still do not like them, so I opted for mimosas instead.  





Saturday night was our neighborhood progressive dinner.  It’s an annual thing and every year reminds us how blessed we are to have neighbors that care about and like each other.  We start with appetizers at one persons house, then move to the next house for soup and salad, then on to the main course, and finally the last house has dessert.  There are about 8 houses on the court and everyone participates so it’s really neat!  We had no idea what we were getting into when we bought the house so we really lucked out!
Appetizers started with oyster shooters.  So that's how we roll.  

Finally, I can’t leave without giving myself a pat on the back for getting a good workout in every day of the weekend, including Friday night! Things have been a little crazy busy lately and I’ve found it difficult to stick with the routine, but I’m hopeful that this will be a great start to the week ahead!  Like I said in my last post, I’m thinking of summer and had better start busting my butt for the body to match my swimsuit aspirations!

  3. I get missing the fiancé. Sometimes when D goes away for business trips, I get like that too. However, I'm all alone in a town where I know virtually no one, so instead of doing all the neat things you go to do, I usually sit around and mope. lol. Sounds like a fun weekend despite flying solo for a while.

  4. Love the progressive dinner idea! We just moved into our neighborhood, I may have to see if there's interest with our neighbors. It sounds like a great way to get to know everyone! #fundaymonday

    1. It seriously is so much fun! It's always tough to get a date that will work with everyone's schedule, but once we get it going, we always have a good time!

  6. Such a great idea! I really want to do that with my neighbors. I live on an awesome street in Chicago, and in an apt in Florida. It is great having neighbors in both places!
