Weekend recap

Geof was away all week and into the weekend on a business trip to Minnesota. He was lucky enough to get to meet up with our friends from the cruise. Amanda and Jes were wonderful hostesses and showed him all around Minneapolis. I was there in spirit, but really bummed that I couldn’t make the trip.


Geof with Amanda and Jes...wish I was there

Friday, I went out with my good friend Kristen to Quotations in Media for what was deemed Brian’s “Trifecta Party”. It was to celebrate him graduating technical school, becoming an electrician and leaving his current job at a bank. We had a nice time and I had my first ever “Dirty Hoe” (it still sounds funny to me) that was a combination of Hoegaarden and Framboise (a sweet raspberry Lambic beer). It was really good. We left Quotations and headed to The Deck. The crowd was light since the Flyers were playing, but we ran into a few people that I knew and did some dancing.


This is what my frosty bev at Quotes looked like. Almost like a pink beer :)

Saturday was a pool day all the way. We woke up early, got some snacks and headed off to the pool. The weather was gorgeous. We laid out, took several dips in the water and chatted the day away. It was the perfect girly day. Saturday night my mom came over and we watched So You Think You Can Dance on the DVR and I ended up going to bed very early. The sun sure does wear a girl out!

Sunday I relaxed most of the morning and started watching Drop Dead Diva OnDemand. It’s a cute show and I can see myself watching more. Geof came home early in the afternoon and it was so good to see him. I missed him like crazy all week. We went to Pinocchio’s Pizza for dinner then came home and watched the Flyers game.



As a random side note, Geof got me a bottle of the Bret Michaels Diet Snapple Troparocka Tea and is so good!

That drink sounds pretty interesting. I'm not sure if I'd like it or not, which makes me more curious to try it.

I haven't heard of that Bret Michaels tea!! Very interesting!!! Glad you enjoyed your weekend!! Sounds like a blast although I know it was hard to have your hubby away. That's always hard for me.
