Random Highlights

It's another Monday. *sad face* Does anyone even look forward to Mondays? I know I don't! The weekends just go by too fast.

On Friday, Michael and I had Cristine and Tim over and they brought this incredible spread over for apz (note Blaire's curious face)!

Saturday was a pretty relaxed day. We went to brunch and in the evening went to Nishino's for dinner and watched 'The Hundred-Foot Journey'.

If you like movies feel-good movies about food. I recommend this one! Michael and I loved it. It was funny, light-hearted, had its serious moments, but all around was inspirational.

Sunday morning I finished my current read, Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas, a YA psychological thriller. Let me just first say, I'm not much of a thriller person, but I did enjoy this one and I already have Dangerous Boys loaded onto my kindle. I'll post a review sometime this week :)

In the afternoon, Michael, Tim, Cristine, and I went to to the soapbox derby hosted by Redbull and then had lunch in Pike Place. Sorry for my lack of photos. I just wasn't on top of it this weekend.

Too lazy to cook dinner, we ended up going to Bottlehouse for dinner and dessert!

And that was my weekend in a nutshell. A few things to look forward to, however, is Labor Day weekend! I'm back on my normal work schedule instead of doing four ten-hour shifts. Michael and I's 'meet-aversery' is next week, and then we'll be off to Oregon for a wedding. Then, by the time we know it, Fall will have come, which will make me super nostalgic about school. Anyone else miss romantic literature lectures? Or is it just me?

Happy Monday, all :)


  1. Dude, is that a desert in a candle tin?! It looks JUST like a candle!
    Methinks your cat is eyeballing the deli platter. Lol! I so miss having a cat. ^_^

    But yeah, Mondays...

    1. It's actually a dessert in a jar, but it does look like a candle! ahh yess, cats are the cutest and so fun to have around.

  2. That dessert looks so effin good!
    I can't remember my weekend. No. It wasn't "so crazy" that I forgot. More on the uneventful side.
    I got a hair cut tho :)

    1. Haircuts are eventful! I love getting a new cut. Makes me feels so relaxed and refreshed :)
