Friendsies weekend...

This weekend was fairly fabulous, if I may say so. 

My law school friend, Kimi, flew in from Houston on Friday evening and we were busy until I took her back to the airport on Sunday afternoon.

Her flight came in at 6:30, and I wanted to take her somewhere fun for dinner, so we headed to Ocean Prime, which happens to be right across the street from my office.  We both enjoyed scallops and risotto (two of my faves - there was no way I was ordering anything else!) and caught up on life for a few hours.  After stuffing ourselves silly, we headed back to the house and watched the rest of the Olympics (oh. so. sad that they're over).

On Saturday morning, I woke up fairly early, so Micah and I sat on the back porch for an hour or so, drinking coffee and enjoying the "cool" weather that blew through for a little while before the oppressive heat made its return.  After we got going and got ready, Kimi and I headed to grab some sushi for lunch and then made our way to Pottery Barn (where else?) to take a peek at their new stuff.  Shockingly, I walked out of the store empty-handed.  I'm not even sure who I am anymore, y'all.

We then made our way over to Pinkberry for some frozen yogurt because I had driven by several times and wanted to try it.  Plus I figured it'd be a relatively healthy cheat on my sugar fast.

Turns out, it's the most disgusting thing I've ever eaten.  Ever. 

I'm not sure why I couldn't get over the super tart, yogurt-y taste, but in true McKayla Maroney fashion, I was not impressed.

So we immediately headed to the cupcake shop next door so that I could get the vomit taste out of my mouth.  Miraculously, I managed to order a cakeball and miniature French macaroons instead of a giant cupcake. 

I won't even try to explain how delicious these were. 

After dessert, we wanted to see a movie and settled on Hope Springs.  I'm a Meryl Streep fan and figured it'd be funny.  Turns out, it was mostly depressing and awkward.  I think maybe I just couldn't relate to the struggles that the characters were struggling with...

We grabbed dinner at On the Border, which neither of us had had in awhile.  (And if you've never experienced the deliciousness of brisket tacos, I feel like I should be the one to command you to try them the next time you see them on a menu.  Oh. so. yum.)

We then drove home and had an impromptu visit with my brother and sister-in-law, who were in the area and wanted to drop by.  LOVED that!

On Sunday, we headed to my Mom's house for an early birthday lunch.  My mom has gotten me the same chocolate mousse birthday cake for the last 14 years, and it's divine.  She also made chicken spaghetti, which was as delicious as always.  But after almost a month with virtually no sugar, the several pieces of cake sent me into a sugar frenzy, and I felt terrible for the next several hours.  That was definitely enough to keep me out of the candy jar until September 1... 

After visiting with my sweet family (including my perfectly perfect niece, who I managed to get ZERO pictures of!) for a few hours, I had to take Kimi back to the airport.

(I had a blast, love, and am looking forward to our next girls' weekend! :))

Once we got back home, Micah and I took it easy (he watched Avatar while I read my book) and made it a relatively early night. 

And that was our {busy!} weekend!  What did you guys do?

Looks like a fun time! I hate you didn't like the yogurt! We have a Yogurtini store near J's apartment and I love it!

My sis was in town this weekend and we had a great time too :)

I've never tried Pinkberry but have always wanted to. Now I'm kind of glad we don't have one anywhere near haha!

We had family in this weekend from out of state! Must be a visiting kind of weekend :)

There are only certain frozen yogurts that I actually like. I know what you mean about the taste. Sounds like you had a great weekend! Have a great week!

There is no reason why colorado drivers should pay more for their auto insurance when there is the online advantage. But you have not eaten. It is purely natural, provides you peace of mind when it comes to your well being and gives you a substantial raise towards fitting into these skinny jeans. Cactus Extracts Side Effects
