last week was absolutely crazy. we started off the week with this disaster on monday, and each day seemed to get progressively worse. needless to say, we were very happy when friday rolled around. we decided to take it easy this weekend and to try to recoup from the stressful week . . .
on friday night after work, we kicked off our weekend by going out to dinner at a restaurant that we had never been to before. there's nothing like chicken parmesan to brighten my mood. after dinner, we ran some much needed errands and then went out for ice cream at cold stone. (we had a coupon and a gift card, so that meant free ice cream for us!)
on saturday, we woke up bright and early and made some pancakes. we spent a leisurely morning driving around to several local yard sales. we actually found a few great deals! we had lunch and then took a drive out to blue ribbon dairy. (we have been wanting to check out blue ribbon for a while now, but we never seem to have the time. it turned out to be so cute!) we came home and took a dip in the pool to cool off. later in the evening, we curled up on the couch with a few movies that we rented from redbox.
on sunday, we did some much needed grocery shopping (thrilling, i know) and then we went biking. we found out that a new trail opened up this past week, so we were excited to check it out. the trail was so nice and clean, and paved too! along the trail, there are wood carvings and sculptures that local artists made. it was pretty neat. we made it back to the car just in time before it started raining. after biking, we came home and watched another movie with some popcorn while it poured outside.
i'm glad we had a chance to relax and recuperate this weekend. here's hoping that this week is less crazy than last week! happy monday!
