Weekend Recap

This weekend was full of relaxation and the usual...good food, good booze and good people.  While we didn't really do much as far as exciting things go, we still had a productive weekend and threw some fun in there.  Some highlights include ::

  • Exploring our neighborhood
  • Honking at deer to get out of the street (it really cracked me up because the deer did exactly what our cat does when he has to get out of the way - panic - and don't worry, they eventually ran off into the meadow out of harm's way)
  • Eating ice cream in the park while listening to the vet's party hard several blocks away
  • Hanging strings of lights in our screened-in porch - our porch isn't anywhere near being finished (I have big dreams for it) but it is so enjoyable to sit out there at night with those lights up.  I hope to eventually have it look at least half as cool as the image above
  • Scrabble on the porch
  • Successful thrift store shopping - we came home with a majority of what we were after! Hooray! And earlier this morning we went back to get an awesome mid-century media cabinet/chest to fix up because Monday's are 25% off everything! Double hooray!
  • Outdoor patio boozin', AmVet pizza (it's so good)

What did all of you get up to this weekend?  I hope awesome things.  Here's to a great week ahead!

ahh. i have a (huge) fear of deer. i know, it sounds pathetic, but i had one come through my driver's side window and hit my face. i am not an overly cautious (nervous) driver in deer populated areas.

Is that your patio? Looks finished to me, love the lights. Thrifting is my favorite weekend adventure. Scored some great large metal letters from signs (for my shop) and a great wool coat which was for my shop but might just have found a home in my closet :)

sounds like a good weekend to me!!! -- i have deer by me all the time - so i'm pretty use to them always being around ..

we went to the zoo, lots of pool time, walked the pups alot and then i went into hibernation Sunday afternoon - i was just exhausted - this is coming from a girl who NEVER EVER naps!

Oh, I can't wait to see your flea market finds in their places-this sounds like an absolutely divine weekend! It's funny-I hated deer when I lived in a heavily wooded area, but now I'd give anything to share the road with them again. Very infrequently.

Scrabble on the patio under twinkly lights sounds like the perfect way to spend a night!

Stephanie August 22, 2011 at 3:05 PM  

I love scoring great finds at thrift stores!!! Sounds like a fabulous weekend!

looking forward to seeing this patio when its all done. It is really nice to be able to sit outside on your own porch with a drink and just chill out. Lazy evenings like that are the bestundb

yay for extra deals on mondays! my local thrift store has 50% off everything on mondays. sounds like a great concept, but the parking lot is terrible on those days! everyone has the same idea as me:) sounds like a lovely weekend.
