Weekend Recap

Well Monday is here once again. Which means I am back to work and ready for Friday to quickly hurry up and get here. Only five more days. Sigh.

This weekend was pretty uneventful. Friday the Hubby and I went out to dinner at Carino's. It was of course delicious as it always is. Then we went to Best Buy and Dick's Sporting Goods so that we could spoil ourselves a little. Aran used his play money to buy movies at Best Buy and I used my play money to buy Colorado Rapids Gear. 

After our little shopping spree, we went home and just relaxed for the rest of the night. Saturday I woke up and headed down to my Brothers house to go spend some time with my family. On my way down there I stopped at Starbucks to try a frappuccino that I found on their Secret Menu. A Butterbeer frappuccino. The Harry Potter nerd in me could not resist this. 

And guess what? It was pretty spot on. Not quite perfect, but it was pretty close. I may have squealed with delight after my first sip. It was delicious and very fattening, I am sure, but I had to try it. 

I visited with my family for a few hours and then headed to Babies R' Us to pick up a few outfits for my best friends baby. There was so many cute outfits, it was so hard to just choose a few, but I managed to walk out of there without buying the whole store.

After Babies R' Us, I headed home and watched the Rapids game. Unfortunately they lost and my favorite player got hurt. Hopefully he can get back to playing soon and hopefully they can win next week. 

After the Rapids game was over, the Husband and I went to get some dinner at this Chinese place that isn't far from our house. I had never been there, but it was delicious and I have now found my new favorite Chinese restaurant.

After dinner we headed to Petsmart to buy some food for our fur babies and then stopped at Best Buy again to grab something for a friend of ours. Then we headed home and started watching the first season of Duck Dynasty. I have been hearing so many things about this show so we finally started watching it. And now I am in love. This show is so funny. I could not stop laughing the whole time. 

Sunday we laid around for most of the day. We finished watching the first season of Duck Dynasty. Then I went and did our grocery shopping for the week. Once I returned and we had all of the groceries put away, we took Louie for a walk around the neighborhood, since it was still nice out. 

We spent the rest of the night catching up on our DVR and having dinner. It was a pretty laid back Sunday and a pretty laid back weekend overall. 

How was everyone else's weekend? Did you do anything fun?
