a weekend in words.

I’ve taken approximately 3 pictures over the past week, which mostly just sucks for you guys because what’s a blog post without pictures?  You’ll have to rely solely on my wordsmithing skills to paint you a picture of my incredibly exciting life.  So… basically I’ve been having amazing hair days, the weather has been incredible and I’ve been doing the fanciest things.  Ok maybe only like, one of those things is legit.  I’m not going to tell you which one though, a girl needs to be a little mysterious, no?

But yes, I’ve been slacking in the photo department.  I think it was that we we’ve had so much going on over the past few weeks that I just wanted to do stuff for a few days without documenting it.  Photographically at least.  In theory it was great but now when I actually want to tell you about it, all I have are my words.  You’re welcome?  I’m sorry?

We did have a pretty great weekend though.  There was a beer festival with friends on Friday night, a birthday brunch in the park and then dinner at a friend’s house on Saturday, and Sunday was spent doing house-type projects before we treated ourselves to a picnic table crawfish boil at our favorite neighborhood bar.  A crawfish boil probably eliminates “doing fancy things” from my mystery list.  I didn’t really have you fooled on that one though, did I?

On top of all that PG13 fun, we also found time to hit up Home Depot, Target and Ikea.  We had lists and everything!  At one point on Saturday we considered trading in the Ford Focus for a minivan because really what’s left to do after you’ve spent the weekend brunching and dealing with window treatments going to the freaking park?  I think we aged 8 years over those two days… I kind of feel like I’m one light fixture away from getting bangs and joining a book club.

It was good weekend, whatever.  How was yours?

It feel weird not showing you any pics though – so here is one of the three photos I took over the last five days.
