This Weekend I...

I'm linking up my weekend recap with with Sar and Syndal

This weekend I..
met up with some blogger-bitties for HH on Friday after work.
(Jess, Syndal, Jen, Lauren)

"Just one drink" quickly spiraled into 3 glasses of wine and a table full of appetizers.
I had told M he should come over after work and that we'd go have a mini-date-night in downtown. Well, I filled up pretty quickly on appetizers and ended up buying M dinner out of guilt.
He was quite the trooper, showing up to an all girl (blogger) happy hour. He said it was really nice to meet some of the girls I talk about, though, and that the girls seemed like nice people. Even you, Lo. ;-)

He drove me home, and I passed out during the Gopher's game on the couch.

This weekend I...
got my oil changed, like any good boring adult. This was made doubly fun since I made an 8 a.m. appointment for Saturday (WHY?!) and needed M to bring me back to my car the next morning. It was nice to have someone to chat with at the car shop, and he even stopped and got us Starbucks before coming to meet me.

This weekend we...
Once again, hi, I'm a boring adult. but OMG it was so exciting. We had this slipcovered nightmare in the living room for the last 2 years. One day a few months ago when I was getting my oil changed, I wandered into the Slumberland outlet store next to Midas (on Excelsior in St. Louis Park- for you locals) when I saw this pretty:

and nearly bought it on the spot.
A few months went by,..and as a part of my birthday present for this year, M said I could finally go pick out a couch. Of course, this beauty popped back into my head, so last weekend we were putzing around and stopped by the Slumberland outlet again, and she was still there! (they had 7 others available when we bought ours, so RUN AND GET ONE if you're looking for a couch). We bought it on the spot, and picked it up this weekend.

Here's what it looked like before:

I am in love.
TJ approves, as well.

This weekend I...
went over to my parents house on Saturday night with M to have dinner. My brother was working, but it was still nice to get to hang out with my mom and dad.
The guys talked about their fishing trip, and I stared at the wall.
Just kidding, but last year was the first year M got to go along on my dad's annual fishing trip to Canada. I got to listen to them talk about it for 2 months prior to the trip, and a month after.
Well, they're gearing up to go in May again, so the fishing talk has geared back up again.

We hung out for a few hours and watched the hockey game,... and I caught my parents' cat, Lucky winking at me.

He says, "I got you."

This weekend we....
woke up early and headed back to St. Paul to meet my parents at church. It was doughnut Sunday, so we stopped downstairs after mass for doughnuts and coffee and chatted with my parents' friends.

After church, we stopped by Target and did some shopping, and then had every intention of stopping by some open houses on the way home (we nosey, yo).. buuuuttt after swinging by the house, I ended up falling asleep for 2 hours. When I woke up we went and grabbed a late lunch/early dinner at Woodfire Grill in St. Louis Park.

Since then, we've been hanging out at home.
I made a pathetic attempt at writing a cover letter and just wasn't feeling it, so I gave up. My brain was mushy and the words were not coming out eloquently, so I'll take a stab at it tomorrow. Wah.

Hope you all had a good weekend as well!
