Checking In and Relaxing Weekends!

Hey there!! I hope your weekend is going well so far. Mine has been good other than the no sleep last night, thanks to restless dogs. It rained off and on yesterday and all weekend for that matter so I think they have a touch of cabin fever. They were up and down all night last for no reason which made it hard for me to sleep. And on top of that, I stayed up reading my book too late. It was so good though. It’s called Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica.

I bought some OPI gel nail polish that I have been loving lately. It is called Let’s Be Friends and is the perfect pinkish white. I have gotten it the last two times I’ve been to the salon.


As for this weekend, I had a rough day at work on Friday so we laid low on Friday night which was nice! Then Saturday, I went to lunch at Lidia’s with Lindsay for restaurant week. It was sooo good. They do a wine pairing with each course for an extra $10. It was fun to try different wines and we made friends with the bartender so he took great care of us!

The meal started out with bread and flavored butter. The grape butter and the sugar butter were my favorites. Sounds random but they were so good that I want to try and make them myself. I can’t find any recipes for them, so if I have a successful try, I’ll post it!

First course was a caesar salad with a sauvignon blanc. The bread crisps were delicious and the homemade dressing was so flavorful. And clearly I like drink options…water, wine and Diet Coke. I have all the bases covered!


Second course was a trio pasta tasting with 3 different pastas. It is all you can eat which is a great deal for the $15 restaurant week special. My favorite one was the ravioli in the black pepper cream sauce. I loved it!! The red pasta was really good as well. I didn’t eat much of the broccoli pasta one though because there was SO much broccoli and I don’t really like it. It was cooked well and the garlic was good but I couldn’t get past the broccoli haha. Good thing I was able to get a few more raviolis instead 🙂 The red was a blend the bartender recommended and it was my favorite by far!!


Dessert was a chocolate torte with maple cream. It was so light and airy. This is the perfect dessert because it was rich and delicious but the perfect size! The prosecco was also great!


Saturday night I went to Lindsay’s and we watched Girl on the Train. We both read the book and liked the movie but we both preferred the book 🙂 It was definitely worth renting though! I snacked on one of these Island Way Sorbets while I was at her house. It was amazing and only 60 calories. I am going to get them next time I am at Costco!!

Today we took the dogs up to give them baths at Dirty Dawgs. It is a self service dog wash and they have everything you need! Neither of them like it but now they are so soft and smell amazing!


The rest of the day will be spent on the couch reading and catching up on the DVR with our cuddly pups. Have an awesome Sunday night!!
