Weekend Recap

This weekend recap starts with dinner and drinks on Thursday night.  I met up with Sally and two of her daughters for dinner and drinks at the BOB in downtown Grand Rapids.  They were going to the Kenny Chesney concert, so I met up with them before the show.

Friday was pretty uneventful.  Kevin and I took the dog for a walk and then caught up on all of our shows on the DVR.  

Saturday morning I got up and did some grocery shopping and cut some fresh daffodils from our yard.  The daffodils are in our backyard where the dog plays, so I figured I better cut them and bring them in the house so I can enjoy them before they get trampled on by the dogs (we are watching Kevin's mom's dogs this week, and they love to play in the back yard).

I also may have purchased some RumChata during my grocery trip on Saturday morning...I had it for the first time on Thursday when I went out, and I LOVED it, so I had to pick some up.  The waiter that brought us our shots of it described it as "the milk that is left after you eat a bowl of cinnamon toast crunch cereal."  And that is exactly what it tastes like--soooooo good!

Kevin's dad and his wife came over and we all went to lunch at Smashburger.  I had never been there before, so I was excited to try something new.  You can order from their menu, or you can build your own burger, which is what we all did.  I forgot to take a picture of my burger before I devoured it, but trust me, it was delicious!

After lunch we went to the casino.  Kevin and I didn't leave as losers, but we also weren't big winners either.  I guess winning $15 is better than losing or winning nothing at all!  That night Kevin and I took Admiral for a walk and then we just hung out at home for the night.

On Sunday I ran some wedding errands.  I picked up my wedding band since it was back from getting re-sized and I purchased jewelry for my bridesmaids.  We went for a nice long walk with Admiral before Kevin's mom came over to drop her dogs off.  We just hung out with the dogs and did some things around the house for the rest of the night.

I hope you had a great weekend and here's to week of beautiful weather here in Michigan!
