Ian had work functions Friday evening and all day Saturday. Even though I missed having him around, I totally took advantage of that time to squeeze in as many Housewives episodes as humanly possible.
One of my favorite ways to spend a solo night in is with cheap Chinese take-out. And red wine. A heavenly combo, if you ask me.
Saturday evening we had tickets to see the Black Keys. They put on a really great show. If you can catch one of their upcoming concerts (and it hasn't sold out already, as this one did), GO!
And Sunday I attended a gorgeous baby shower for my friend Whitney. We met in college and were sorority sisters. She is due this summer with their first child, and they are going to let the gender be a surprise. The shower theme featured birds nests, which was such a cute touch.
When it was time to open gifts, Whitney took a non-traditional route. She passed the wrapped gifts around the room and each girl took a present that they did not bring. Then we went around the room introducing ourselves, saying how we knew the mama-to-be, and opening a gift for her. It was a cute way of involving everyone.
The best part was seeing college friends and catching up with them. We were all in the same pledge class of ADPi. We're spread out now over different parts of the Carolinas and Georgia, but it's always wonderful to have a little mini-reunion.
And on Sunday evening I met up with some girlfriends for a little back porch wine session. We've recently started this tradition and it's easily one of the highlights of the weekend. Just a time to sit, sip, gab, gossip.
Only a handful of days more until we get another much-welcomed weekend!
