Weekend Update

I can't even begin to express how nice this weekend was. No stress and pure relaxation!

Friday, Chris was off work. I love these days because he always surprises me with a clean apartment when I get home from work. There's nothing better. We then went on a date to see Les Mis (finally) and PF Chang's for a late dinner. No pictures as my phone died... and I was way too hungry to even think about that! It was a fun and relaxing way to end the week. Also, Les Mis didn't make me cry at all. I was expecting waterworks from what I'd heard. Am I not human anymore?

Saturday morning was one of the best mornings I've had in months. We just relaxed... layed in bed for an hour playing Scramble, drinking coffee, and watching tv. I then let my hair air dry- this is a big deal because it takes hours and normally I can't do it because it'll freeze the moment I walk out of the door. We had nowhere to go, so I just let it dry slowly and it was amazing. I painted my nails, got some chores done, which didn't even seem like chores because it was just so nice to do whatever and just be in our apartment. (I wish we could prorate our rent based on how long we actually spend in there- if that were the case, our rent would be dirt cheap). 
Birchbox also arrived (reveal this week!) and I realized how I have a hoarding problem with my boxes.  Frizzy, air dried hair but SO happy!

Saturday night we made dinner: crabcake sandwiches plus plenty of beer and wine, cheese, and crackers. Perfect.

Crabcake sandwiches on pretzel rolls {Maryland style}, sweet potato fries and pasta
Fire Road Sauvignon Blanc {amazing}
Sunday was more relaxing, running errands, including driving by a couple possible houses to rent. Yes, we are moving again in March. No, I don't want to think about it yet.

Then there were the Grammys. I could go into fashion picks and all of that but I just can't get past Justin. 
Fashion "experts" said black and white was "in" for tonight, but this is what they were actually talking about.
Ladies of the world are thanking you, JT, for gracing us with your musical presence. I can't get enough- maybe it was because my love for you started at age (?) and I saw you twice in person... my poor dad even brought me and BFF Liz to see you at RFK stadium while you and the rest of NSYNC dropped down from the rafters on strings (No Strings Attached, anyone? obvs). I digress. Music is where you belong, Justin, and I'm so glad you are back. I'm dragging Chris to your concert and hopping on your tour bus when you announce your tour and I cannot wait already!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Did you do anything fun?


  1. Crabcake sandwiches sound so good! I can't wait to see what you got in your birchbox! I love that polish! What shade is that???

  2. I love that pink Zoya! My weekend was very relaxing as well. It's so nice to just chill out.

  3. I hoard my Birchboxes, too! I keep telling myself that I will make one of those fun little drawer things one of these days, but still haven't yet! The December box was so pretty!

    I love that color of Zoya - which one is it? I might need to add it to my collection!


  4. I am always so jealous of all the food y'all eat. It just looks SO GOOD! Your hair reminds me so much of my own...I air dry my hair all the time, in fact it's a very rare time when I actually blow dry it. My Birchbox is delayed thanks to Nemo...BOO!! It doesn't even SHIP until the 13th now :(

  5. I can't wait to see what is in your birchbox. I need to do a beauty subscription. They look so fun.

  6. I have a big stack of birchbox boxes too!

  7. Eeek!! I just watched the Grammy performance via YouTube and I could die happy! :) I can't remember how old I was 12? Haha! The day is next tour is announced is going to be a ridiculously happy day in my book and I cannot wait!
