Jam packed weekend!

How come Friday takes ages to get here and then the weekend goes by like THAT!? I just don't understand this. Whoever had the bright idea of making work weeks five whole days long, and weekends only two, was just outrageous.

Anyway, where do I start!? I think we crammed in more than ever before. Friday night Caleb's mom came into town to close on their home here in Cincinnati and wanted to treat us to dinner. We decided to go to Mimi's Cafe (Cincinnati/Columbus locals -- GO! It's delicious!!), as this is where our rehearsal dinner will be. So, we ate our delicious dinner (gigantic burger for me!) and then picked out our menu options for the night before the wedding...let me tell you, its going to be AMAZING.

Then we ended early enough and his mom had an idea to go see a movie. You know Caleb and I have been dying to see 42, but it wasn't on until really late so we went with that cute cavemen movie called "The Croods" - OMG, so good. Seriously, super family friendly, I laughed, and cried. Highly recommended!

Don't you love cell phone quality pictures in bad lighting?
Saturday morning came and I was so excited for Caleb's date he had planned for us; "All Things Cincinnati"! He treated me to Skyline Chili (our fav!) and a Red's game at the stadium downtown!

It was only 54 degrees, so did we think of putting on sunscreen? Nope.
Did we get sunburnt? Yep.

Then we went back to the apartment and relaxed for a couple hours. My cousin's wife was throwing him a surprise 30th birthday so you nkow we had to make an appearance. He is a HUGE Notre Dame football fan  (gag), but I must say... the cake was IMPRESSIVE!

He was super surprised and the party turned out great. I got to introduce Caleb to a lot of people he's never met before, so that was awesome! There was a DJ and everything! It couldn't have been more fun!

Sunday came, and we went to church like usual... and then some of our good friends Josh & Marie asked us to lunch at a local burger joint, their adorable daughter Nora of course was there. She was the high light of my week. That little girl has Caleb and I wrapped around her finger!

Then we went back to the apartment until it was time to head back to church to hang with the youth group. It was all fun and games until someone sat on my thumb during an intense game of what could be compared to as musical chairs. It took all I had not to cry like a child and run out of the room... lets juts say I can barely move it today. I'm praying it feels better so I can do daily tasks like normal again...makes me thankful for my fingers!

The night turned up though when Caleb turned on New Girl, and then a Modern Family re run after...and we literally BOTH laughed so hard we cried. Season 4, episode 3... watch it. Watch it now ;)

Hope everyone had a blast of a weekend.

Linking up with the beautiful Sami, as always!


  1. That sounded like a jam packed weekend!! Caleb's date idea on saturday looked so fun :) I love modern family - I never watch an episode and not laugh!! p.s. nora is aaaaaadorable!

  2. Oh geez, Mimis is SO good!! Have you had their Buttermilk Spice muffins? Drool.

  3. I cry from laughing at every Modern Family episode. The writers are the funniest people ever.

  4. Mimi's cafe is so yummy!! sounds like a fun weekend :)

  5. Glad you had such a great weekend! & would you believe me if I told you I've never had Skyline Chili?! Gold Star for life!

  6. What a fun weekend! Oh and I completely agree...only 2 days off with a 5 day week is totally lame. Society should really rethink this decision!

  7. Hope your thumb feels better!!!

  8. Woo!! You were super busy. I LOVE Mimi's, and actually ate there last week as well! I love the idea of all things Cincinnati. What a fun day. I'm kinda mad because none of my shows were new last week, so I'm all caught up. Noel and I started watching parks and rec on netflix. Have you seen that one?

  9. looks like you had a great weekend!! and yay for mimis!!

  10. I'm so jealous you went to a baseball game! I'm studying abroad in New Zealand this semester, and I'm so jealous of everyone that gets to go see games, eat hot dogs, and drink tons of beer!! Looks like you had a great time!

    :) Liz

  11. oh hey, another week closer to your WEDDING

  12. Ok so when I show up this summer, I say we MUST attend a game!! That is after lots of girl talk and no sleep what so ever! I love you friend. You make my heart happy. So thankful to know you!

  13. what an amazing weekend! i think we should have 4 day work weeks, and 3 day weekends all the time :)
