Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies

Annnnnnd just like that, it’s Monday! Y’all have been hearing a lot from me lately, so I’ll *try* to keep this as short as possible. Speaking of that, if you’re interested in learning the story of how Ben and I met from BOTH of our perspectives, they’re linked below. 🙂

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

And yes, I say both of our perspectives because Ben also wrote his POV throughout the whole thing!

On Friday after work, Ben and I headed over to Mindy’s Hot Chocolate for dinner and dessert to celebrate our anniversary a day early. Super cute place – would totally go back there for hot chocolate (I had the Mexican Hot Chocolate with cayenne pepper OMG) but the food was just okay.

Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies
On Saturday (technically our one-year anniversary), Ben went in to train two clients while I got ready for a wedding. We picked up my friend Perry (to dogsit) and headed over to my friend Saige’s place. Saige, her husband Joel, Ben & I were all driving together up to Waukesha, Wis. for the wedding! I don’t have many pictures because I was being “in the moment” but it was a beautiful wedding full of love. Plus, I got to spend the day with my best friend!

I took a quick trip to Target ($65 later – SERIOUSLY) and then came back just in time for Ben’s little sister and her boyfriend to show up. They hung out with us all day watching football and the boys played some video games. Cora literally slept ALL day because she was so pooped from running around with Nushi (Saige’s dog) all day on Saturday. Kinda nice. 😉

We were supposed to head out to the ‘burbs for a hockey game, but when we looked at the traffic, it would’ve taken us an hour + to get out there, so Ben called it off and ended up working a bit. We listened to an episode of The Black Tapes podcast which I HIGHLY recommend, but I don’t think I can listen to it anymore. I’m already a chicken as it is + I hate the dark, so the last two nights we’ve listened to this and it’s taken me almost an hour to fall asleep.

And now it’s Monday! It’s supposed to be “warm-ish” today, but I’ll be inside all day. I’m planning to work from home the next two days, so that will be nice. Excited for a short week!

How was your weekend?
