Good morning! It’s Monday and we’re back to the grind. How are you doing with the time change? I didn’t change the clock in my car and did a double take this morning lol.
The weekend was jam packed on this end so let’s jump in…
Friday night was a cozy night in, Marco BBQ’ed us some chicken and we sat on the couch, had some drinks and chatted–the perfect decompress evening.
On Saturday evening, we had my parents over for dinner and to hang out. Marco whipped up some amazing Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches and I grabbed some key lime tarts from the local bakery–so good!
My parents also surprised me with an Instant Pot for my birthday! So excited to try this tonight! Do you girls have any recipes you love? Would love to hear.
On Sunday I attended my friend’s bridal shower and it was so wonderful. The MOH, bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride put on an incredible spread, including wine 😉 which was a huge hit.
The food was overflowing, there were tons of women there, we played a fun trivia game that the MOH set up on the tv as a Powerpoint slide show wherein the questions had been asked to the Groom in advance and the Bride had to guess what he said–which turned into a drinking game for her! Questions such as, “What is your favourite physical feature about the Bride?”, “Who made the first move?”, “What was the best date you went on?” and “What annoys her the most about you?” etc. I know a lot of people groan at the idea of games, but this was really kept everyone engaged and laughing, it was so fun!
And finally, on Sunday night, Marco made an amazing dinner for us in between watching golf and I relaxed and caught up on some YouTube. I love social gatherings but find they take a lot out of me so recharging my batteries afterwards is imperative.
My girlfriend also gifts me with my first wedding magazine and a planning book! So sweet and excited to flip through this and get organized.
Hope you girls had an amazing weekend!
