Well, here we are again Monday. Good thing I have a good weekend in the books to make up for it!
Our weekend started off with a super fun double date night on Friday with our pals Joe and Kate!
Geez, I seriously cannot believe how long it had been since the four of us all hung out without the babes. It was wayyyyyy too long for all of our liking.
We ended up checking out a new-ish spot in our area, Mexican Radio. I’d visited their location downstate in Hudson before, but that was yeeeears ago, so I was excited to check it out.
Of course, it was a celebration to have us all get together, so margaritas were in order.
Just simple, straight up margs on the rocks. With sugar, not salt. Apparently I’m weird.
We ordered a couple of apps to share, including some nachos and these Radio Roll-Ups that were ridiculously good.
The picture really does not do them justice.
Man, we missed these two!
For my dinner, I ordered the enchiladas with chicken and sautéed peppers and onions and their “least spicy sauce” which, in my opinion, was a lie. That ish was spicy.
The enchiladas were good, buuuut I forgot to order flour tortillas instead of corn (not my favorite, at all) so that was sort of a bummer. But hey, we then decided to order some sangria so that made up for my mistake.
Saturday was a fun day, nothing crazy. I met up with some of my best girlfriends for lunch and we sat and chatted for a good few hours which was nice. I then hit up Bath and Body Works and stocked up on some of their 4 for $18 hand soaps and a new candle (for free, thanks to a coupon, baby!). I’m in love with this scent.
I actually got all of that for just over $15.00 Not bad, right?
Jay and I were lazy for dinner, so we decided to order a pizza.
Shortly after Lucas went to bed, we also had ourselves a little bonfire so we could burn up some cardboard and scrap wood that’s been piling up around here.
After the fire was over, we settled in with our DVR and some dessert.
Chocolate chip cookie dough, for the win. My faaaavorite.
Sunday was another good one, but nothing overly exciting. I got a tonnn of real cleaning done which I really surprised myself with (I’m not the cleaner in this household, but I can “tidy up” and pick things up with the best of ‘em).
Lucas and I did the grocery shopping for the week…and seriously, how BIG does he look?!
We also finally finished up our second DIY project…check it out!
FYI: We went back and forth on whether or not to add an apostrophe on our name…ultimately, we decided to add it because we said it’s our project (The Horan’s project). I’m pretty sure that’s still right…right? I’m not great with apostrophes. Oh well.
*Edited to add: I totally had the apostrophe wrong and it was really bothering me so I went and edited the photo to take the apostrophe out. Thanks for the heads up, guys! Clearly, I need to brush up on my apostrophe use…thanks to reader JD for sharing this fun comic: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apostrophe
We hung this chalkboard key and mail holder by our back door through the garage (which is the main door we use) and I’m not only in love with it, but I’m really hoping that it’ll help clear up some of the clutter that winds up on our kitchen table/counter/etc. I’m hoping to have some more details put together for you guys later this week!
The evening was spent outside covering up the pool (sigh) and playing around in the yard – the weather was gorgeous this weekend.
Looks like somebody’s got some static going on, wouldn’t you say?
Rather than have a formal (ha, like we even do anything close to “formal” around here) dinner, we decided to make some snacks to enjoy in the late afternoon/evening while watching some football.
Homemade guac, homemade salsa, and some simple chicken skewers were a few of the favorite items for the day.
For the salsa, I actually used the Fiery Red Salsa recipe from the Oster Versa 1100 Challenge. It was craaaaazy easy to make in the blender and the taste was delicious. Definitely check out the recipe (and enter to win by Instagramming with #versachallenge).
And that pretty much sums up our weekend! What did you guys do? Anything fun?
Oh, and be sure to check out the fun new workout I posted yesterday!
