Coming at you with my weekend recap a day late, thanks to a non-stop weekend and allergies that are seriously getting the best of me right now. This picture of Brady prefering to nap during our walk than actually walk about sums up how I feel right now, too.
Despite the annoying pollen induced headaches, this weekend really was a great one. Friday was our only downtime so we hung out at home- testing out our new grill, painting our nails (or that was just me) and catching up on the Shark Tank spin-off, Beyond the Tank.
Saturday was our crazy day. We had lunch with Nick's family half way across the state, then booked it back home to meet with a sprinkler company and frantically clean the house before our dinner guests arrived. This was our first 'official' dinner party with our new dining table and it was a success! We had caprese salad, pretzel rolls with pimento cheese, sauteed green beans, grilled steaks and of course, the highlight - chocolate pie - followed by a late night of Catch Phrase and Cards Against Humanity. And now I'm drooling.

When I first woke up at 6:45 on Sunday morning to take a whining Brady outside, it was pouring rain and I knew there was no way we were making it to church. Sometimes it's just too hard to get out of bed so we ended up sleeping in until 10am and it was pretty blissful. We cleaned up from the night before, got ourselves ready and then it was on the road again - this time to my hometown to celebrate my dad's birthday.
We spent the day playing with the dog, checking out their new Home Goods, doing dinner with the whole fam all while taking zero pictures unfortunately. I'm making a mental note to start taking more pictures so I don't just throw my used Instagram ones at you every Monday. But anyway, it was a great way to end the weekend - even if we did pull into our driveway way past our normal Sunday night bedtime.
I'm off to pop some more aspirin and look into getting allergy shots again. Happy Tuesday!
