Weekend Recap

I had a good weekend and it was nice to switch things up a bit.  My mom had two of her good high school friends come into town and visit with her this weekend.  Because of this I only stayed with her on Friday.

I think this was a good break for me.  I have been bottling up some frustrations over the week with our mother/daughter relationship.  So it was a healthy break for me to not be there for the whole weekend.  Even though I most definitely felt guilty.

On Saturday night, I invited one of my best friends, Farrah, up for dinner and drinks.  Typically, Dustin and I really like exploring restaurants and bars within walking distance from us (when we do stay in West Seattle), but I really wanted to try a few new places.  We started our night with dinner at Circa in the Admiral District of West Seattle.  I really liked their beer selection and loved that my burger came with a fresh Macrina bun.  It certainly stood out from the normal pub burger one would order!

After our dinner we decided to meet up with Dustin and our good friend, Phil, for drinks on Alki.  Margaritas were calling our name so we ended up at Cactus, right next to Morgan and Preston's old town home!

On Sunday morning we attended a baby shower of one of Dustin's childhood friends.  The shower was all the way in Port Angeles which took up the majority of our day just driving there.  Our friends Spencer and Mallory tagged along as well!

We got a little loopy being in the car for so long . . .

After our all day long excursion, Dustin and I agreed that some pizza and wine sounded good!  We headed back up to Pizzeria Credo after having such a great first experience there.  Their service is wonderful and I love their wine list and their Con Carne pizza.

Last night, I booked a flight to visit Thayer and Addison!  I was not able to attend Addison's Birthday party this year due to my mom's health.  Not that my mom is stable again, I really wanted to spend some time with Addison before my months start to get crazy with wedding planning.  I am thankful that I was able to find a low cost flight!
