Hi, friends and helloooo workweek. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little sad that our 3-day weekend is over but it was so nice to have an extended break. The hubs and I kept this 4th of July pretty low key due to several trips coming up. He got not one but two games of golf in over the weekend while I did some reading for work… and caught up on Mistresses and UnReal. Let’s jump right in to my short but sweet weekend recap!
I sleep like a rock (one of my best qualities) and logged a total of 11 hours on Friday night. Whoops! I know, I know… it’s a bit much but I guess that’s what a long week and a tough FlyWheel class will do to you. On Saturday we did some things around the house and later that night we headed back to the City Lights rooftop bar. Their signature drink is amazing -the sparkle & pop- and I highly recommend the strawberry lemonade. Because a popsicle in prosecco is such a good idea!
On Sunday we squeezed in some pool time and stocked up on grilling essentials. We also drove by our townhouse construction site to see the progress of our new place. We were supposed to be moving in fall of this year (but you know how these things go) and now they’re saying it may not be until first quarter of 2017. Meh!!! I just have to be patient but can’t wait to share progress updates with you guys. I know that foundation is just waiting to be poured!
Yesterday I ran a few errands, grilled out with some friends and caught the fireworks show uptown. They recently moved the show to the baseball stadium and O.M.G. the whole city was packed!! I have seriously never seen so many people in uptown at one time. Please see photo below.
I felt sorry for the poor people trying to drive out of here but thank goodness we just had to walk a few blocks. Perks of city living, right?! Instead of facing the madness in Romare Bearden Park, we took an elevator to the 7th floor of a parking deck and watched from there. Much less crowded and much better view! The show was amazing and watching fireworks is always a great way to end the day 🙂
I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend and hopefully we can all easily transition back into the workflow today. With a large cup of coffee, of course!
