The theme of this weekend? Relax!

Hey guys!

I hope your weekend was really great 🙂  I think the theme of the weekend for Brian and I was unintentionally “relax.”  Initially, we planned on skiing on Saturday but it was just too warm, and our friend Oliver was DJing a show on Friday night.  That being said, we were out late on Friday with friends which made an early ski wakeup call out of the question!

Friday night was SO fun.  It was pretty spontaneous on my part considering when we found out about the show Brian and I were already in PJs.  We quickly tossed on some regular clothes and headed to Oliver’s show!

It was so fun to see him up in the DJ stand.  Once he was done, we headed upstairs to the main event where people were giving light shows (pictured above!), break dancing, and just totally rocking out to the music.  It was pretty darn cool and impressive to watch those dancers!

Saturday morning, I got busy in the kitchen…

I made a batch of Coconut Maple Granola and Almond Milk to go with our housewarming gift for Noah and Marisa since we were headed there later that afternoon.

Once Brian woke up we both enjoyed smoothies for breakfast, put  on our running shoes and jogged a couple of miles to Lululemon for free yoga.  It was a wonderful class and a great way to start the day 🙂

After yoga, we played with Bernie a bit 🙂  (per usual…)

And then we headed out to Noah and Marisa’s housewarming party!

Marisa did an AMAZING job on all of the appetizers.  It was so fun to try the healthy and delicious eats 🙂

My absolute FAV is pictured below…blackberry, mozzarella, and basil.  It was like a blackberry caprese.  YUm!

Raspberries with a little chocolate chip, anyone?

So fun!

After the housewarming party, we put our Butler gear on and headed out to the Irish Snug to watch the Butler Notre Dame game.  We had a blast watching the game.  It was very close the entire time, which really had everyone on the edge of their seats but unfortunately we lost 🙁

Sunday morning, we headed out to get Bernie’s last puppy shot.

And, as a reward we got him a pup cup from Starbucks. AH! I just love watching him eat that little whipped cream.  He is so stinking cute 🙂

Brian and I then headed out to get some massages…so relaxing and amazing! (see how the theme is coming into play here?  Saturday yoga, Sunday massages…)

After our massages and getting a bit of work done, I whipped up some kale salad and these carrot cake cupcakes from Detoxinista to share with everyone at Liz and Aidan’s for a little Sunday family dinner/cookout.

We enjoyed homemade potato salad, kale salad, chicken, cupcakes and sangria.  What a way to top off a wonderful weekend 🙂

  1. I would have to say that my weekend theme was “preparation”. We spent all weekend moving into our new home in Oregon and getting organized, setting up for our home-based business, and settling into the area!

  2. I have never done a yoga class at LuluLemon but I always want to try them out. Did you enjoy it?

      Brian and I LOVE the yoga classes at Lulu. It’s a great way to get exposed to new/different local studios and it’s a fun way to start Saturday 🙂

  3. Is that your new blue dress that you ordered recently? I love the color! Bernie looks good in it too! lol

  4. Wow, looks like a really fun weekend, and love seeing pictures of Bernie! I think I need to have a relaxation weekend soon too!
