Weekend Recap

Hello!  Today is President's Day and my boss gifted our office the day off.  Our company never takes smaller holidays off so this is a treat.  Because I have today off, I stayed an extra day down at my moms.

My weekend highlights include:

- Friday morning I discovered a new J Crew Factory store nearby and scored a chambray shirt and some new earrings.  I think I could have spent hours in that store!  I was happy with the items I walked away with.

- I ran into Deena at Home Goods while on my search for navy blue pillows (that I never found).  While we continued running errands together, Deena scored an amazing new white desk for the empty nook in her new apartment. We have been discussing this space for a while, so I am happy she found something!

We both ended up purchasing the same basket!  I placed mine on top of our entry way table to keep the "walk through the door" clutter contained!

- Stumbled across this cute blog, The Inspired Room.  I can't wait to spend more time on this site and go through her in review for room inspiration!

- I had coffee with one of my best college friends, Erin, who was in town from Salem, OR.  Erin is working as an Occupational Therapist.  I love how successful, motivated, down to earth and smart my friends are!

- Celebrated 6 years with Dustin.  Dustin had to work but I was able to meet him for lunch at one of our favorite Teriyaki shops.  We decided to forgo a dinner out since we ate a lot of heavy foods this weekend.  Our dinner was light - fresh chicken salads and angel food cake for dessert.  It was weird to give gifts since we just celebrated Valentine's Day.  However, I found a Seahawk Fleece for Dustin that he loved!  Dustin gave me an envelope with two Groupon date nights in it.  One for the observatory deck atop the Columbia Tower and the other for the Underground Tour of Pioneer Square.  I love Groupon because it makes you venture out to something new!

- I watched UP with my mom, which is one of our favorite movies to watch together.  Followed by an episode of the Kardashian's (it is our guilty pleasure but we both get a kick out of watching it). Mom was so sweet and asked me to stay up longer with her.  So we watched the news for a bit as well into the wee hours of the night.

It was a good weekend, overall.  I love being able to cherish moments with my friends, mom and Dustin over the weekend.  It really gives me the fuel to power through another work week!
