Okay, that’s enough exclamation points for one blog post. Even though I worked on Friday, I ended up having a pretty fun-filled weekend. My mom texted me on Friday around noon inviting Dago and I over for dinner because “it’s a holiday, so your dad barbequed everything.” After work, Dago and I headed up north to see my fam for chicken, brisket, and–my favorite–banana pudding. Hanging out with my parents is always so much fun because they really are my best friends. Also, Dago and my brother are so funny together and their friendship makes my heart happy. On the way home, we caught our own little fireworks show, which was the perfect way to end the night.
On Saturday, I slept in hard. One of my best friends who works for the Leticia van de Putte campaign was in town for the weekend, and one of my best friends from high school just moved back to town, so I planned to spend the weekend with them. I had brunch, and then post-brunch drinks at a different restaurant, and then watched the Costa Rica-Netherlands game at another different restaurant. After that cah-razy game, we all needed a nap. I napped for a few hours, and then met up with my other BFF for drinks and pizza in East Austin. Patio-sitting in Austin is one of my favorite summer past times.
The rest of the weekend was spent cleaning and setting up Contessa’s new cat tree! Dago and I joke that she’s in her teenager stage because she sleeps out in her bed in the living room, and I guess now that she has this giant cat tree, she’s got her own apartment down the road from Mom and Dad. Our little one just keeps growing up!
Did you do anything fun this weekend? Any plans for the week ahead?
Oh, and in case you didn’t get the reference in my blog post title, you need to see this movie ASAP. #cultclassic
