mem day weekend recap

We had the perfect quintessentially-summer Memorial Day weekend! Friday Drew worked from home, I monogrammed #allthethings, and then we had a lovely low-key dinner at Blue Coast Burrito followed by a walk around the greenway. It was such a beautiful evening -- perfect weather, lovely scenery... even spotted a few palm trees around the Pollo Tropical (we can pretend we're in Charleston, right?).

Saturday I had a potential client consultation over the phone that went great, and then we hung out and got ready to head over to Drew's parents' place for a grad school graduation lunch honoring his brother Stephen. Dan bombed the lawn for mosquitos, but somehow I managed to get out with about 14 new bites. ACK! (May literally have to wear long sleeves and long pants if I'm outside in the evenings from now on.)

Sunday we let Drew sleep in (he helped out his friend Drew move into their new house just down the street from us when their movers didn't arrive until close to 9PM, so they were up laaaate), and then I got to go to the pool to lay out for an hour and read a book while Lilly napped and hung out with Dada. GLORIOUS! Felt like I was really getting away with something!

We hung out at another neighbor-friend's house Sunday night to grill out burgers and brats and they all watched the new Game of Thrones while I took Lilly home for bedtime. (Definitely not sad I missed that... I vehemently hate GOT.)

Then yesterday we sunscreened ourselves up, made some party-melons, and hit the neighborhood pool with LB! Literally the perfect afternoon -- eating guacamole and watermelon, swimming and bouncing with Lilly (who had a BLAST). We tired her out BIG TIME -- she collapsed at nap time and ended up going to bed at 7:45pm last night! Barely heard a peep from her once she was down!

Julianna and Kiggans came over for dinner (Drew's spicy seafood gumbo) and we excitedly made lists for our friendcation that's coming up in 11 days! Can't wait!!!!!


How was your Mem Day weekend? We were chatting last night about government accounting jobs and some that only require 4-day workweeks... that sounds sooo appealing; we'd love to have Dada home an extra day every weekend! (And you know, not have him have to work ON weekends... Sigh.)
