Weekend Recap: IT’S SO NICE OUT!

And it’s Monday again! Time to go with the weekend recap. I did try to vlog a bit this weekend, but I’m not sure I got much footage so we’ll see. 🙂

Friday I worked from home. I had a few conference calls and a few Dropbox emergencies (which is how we get my “client” their work…). Thankfully my stomach was much better on Friday, so I think the flu is finally over!

After work I spent a bit cleaning up my apartment and went over to Ben’s apartment around 7:30 p.m. to eat some random stuff we got from Postmates (it was good, but I only ate about 2/3 of it) and watch Harry Potter. SUPER exciting Friday night. 😉

Weekend Recap: Postmates Food

Saturday we woke up around 8:30 and headed to Starbucks by Ben’s gym around 10. We worked together until he had to leave for his only client at 11:30 and I met him there for our lower body workout at 12:30. We took it slow and light (#tyss haaaaa) since we both hadn’t worked out much the whole week prior due to the stomach flu.

Lower Body Workout

After our workout, I went back to my apartment to cook up some lunch, shower and change.

You Better Have Tacos Door Mat

A couple hours later I headed over to Ben’s and we watched an episode or two of a documentary before we headed out to Ben’s friend’s birthday party at a bowling alley.

I haven’t been bowling in at least five years and it was so much fun! I even got a strike – wooooo. On accident, though. I have absolutely no form.

Sunday we got up, Ben made me breakfast 🙂 and we headed to Starbucks for some serious work. I had to get a ton of work out to someone and Ben had a bunch of new client programs to write. It was so hard sitting next to the window, looking at people running around outside in the nice weather!

After Starbucks, I ran home to eat and change quick.

Trader Joe's Meal

We headed out to a beach (Montrose Beach, I think??) to sit by the water (favorite thing #1) and watch the dogs on the dog beach (favorite thing #2). It was soooooo amazing. The weather was gorgeous, Ben and I laughed at all the dogs (and contemplated stealing some) and then we took a walk around. We were out there for a good 1.5 hours or so, and it was so relaxing. I felt SO happy afterwards.

Montrose Beach

After the beach, we headed over to Cone for a pre-dinner ice cream snack.

Ben had Cookie Monster (the blue one, which turned his lips bright blue which I thought was HILARIOUS) and I got Birthday Cake. Both were SO good, but so rich, so I spent the rest of the night with a bloated, pregnant-looking stomach. Yay, dairy intolerance!

Once we got back to Ben’s, he did some work and I played around on my phone. We ate quick and spent the rest of the night watching Harry Potter. Seriously, the best Sunday ever! Can’t wait for many, many more. 🙂

How was your weekend?

Linking up with Katie!

    It was so nice I could actually run outside on Sunday, even though the wind nearly knocked me over. haha Sounds like a fun weekend. Let’s hang the next weekend you’re free. Maybe the 22nd? Also, during the summer there’s free yoga at Millennium Park I want to do. You should join me! It doesn’t start for a bit though.

      It was! OMG the wind was awful, haha! We walked down by the lake at one point and couldn’t even keep walking because of the wind! Haha just seeing this comment, but we’re already texting about plans. 🙂 And I definitely will try out summer yoga with you!

    Glad that you’re feeling better! And sounds like a productive weekend too! Congrats on the strike too! I’m terrible at bowling, haha. I need bumpers otherwise they almost always end up in the gutter. I think I would be at the beach every weekend just to watch the dogs if I lived there. I would totally want to steal one too!

    My weekend was good! It went wayyyy too fast. I did go to a bar Saturday night and met up with a man friend. Just friend. But it was still nice to get out of my normal routine a bit.
