Weekend Recap: Games & Brunch

Happy Monday! I can say that because this has definitely shaped up to be a pretty amazing Monday. ๐Ÿ™‚ Even so, let’s take a quick look back at the weekend.

Friday I worked from home (and wrote a sneaky little blog post) for the day. I walked to the gym to workout with Ben over lunch, but my stomach was killing me so we just ended up walking home. Hey, at least I got in a walk?

The rest of the afternoon I spent working and logged off around 5. I got ready, headed over to Ben’s and we took off for a night in the city with one of our favorite couples, Frank and Draco. We had some drinks and sushi atย Niu Japanese Fusion Loungeย before heading to FTW – an arcade bar downtown. I had SO much fun! And Ben loved his super girly drink. ๐Ÿ˜‰

After a few hours of games, Ben and I headed home and were all tucked in before midnight. YES.

Saturday I actually slept in until 11 – what?! Ben had left around 7:30 to train his clients, but I just kept on sleepin’.

I met up with Ben at the gym around 1:30 for our own workout. I was not in the right mindset, but I still got through.

Once we got done, we headed to Big & Little’s to try out some tacos. I didn’t realize how popular the place was! It was pretty good, but if I’m honest … I’ve had better tacos in the city.

Once we were all stuffed, we headed back to Ben’s and pretty much chilled all night, watching a Netflix show and then some Harry Potter. Amazing Saturday!

Sunday we woke up pretty early (well, for us on a weekend at least) and after taking our time getting ready, we headed over to Whisk for brunch. I’ve been to Whisk before and I love it!

We walked there since it was so beautiful out, and had a small wait so we stood outside.

I got the Buffalo Chicken Hash (which is what I got last time) and it was amazing again! Highly recommend.

Ben got the Steak Hash and loved it, too! P.S. I just think he’s the most handsome date ever … ๐Ÿ™‚

I was feeling a bit anxious all day, so after brunch we walked home, grabbing a few cake balls from West Town Bakery (no pics, but the french toast one was SO GOOD)ย on our way. Once home, Ben changed and we headed out to the dog beach again. We both have such crazy dog fever it’s not even funny. Ben was so sweet trying to keep me occupied all day so my mind wouldn’t get the best of me.

After the beach, we went to a park over by our apartments before I headed home to shower/eat quickly. Unfortunately the tortellini I ate made me extremely sick, so Ben and I watched a movie on the couch the rest of the night. Feeling much better this morning, though!

How was your weekend?

Linking up with Katie!
