Labor Day weekend recap

Friday, we ran a few errands and then went to Pinocchio’s for dinner. Geof loves when we go there so that he can pay a visit to the beer garden and pick out some fancy beers. I even picked one out that we enjoyed at home growler style called Bethlehem Brew Works Loco Lime Lager. It was really refreshing and the perfect brew to end summer with. Once we got home, we did some weeding in our garden and got it all cleaned up for fall. We spent the night relaxing and it was nice to take it easy.



Saturday, we headed down to Delaware. It was the last day for 20% off at Ulta and Geof wanted to go to Best Buy. Since they were right next to each other, it worked out perfectly. After shopping, we went Jared Jewelers and then further into DE to have a late lunch at Don Pablo’s. It may be a chain, but I love that place. We were stuffed and ended up heading across the way to the mall to walk it off. When we first walked in, there was a sign stating that any minors had to be accompanied by an adult. Every 5 minutes I saw a mall security guard questioning a teenager. I guess they weren’t kidding! They opened a Bare Escentuals Boutique in the mall and it was beautiful. I ended up getting Well Rested and the RareMinerals facial moisturizer and eye cream. So far, I really like both.



Once we got back home, we took the dogs for a long walk. The weather was nice and cool and the dogs loved it. We came home and caught up on all of the TV we missed when we were in SC.

Sunday, I slept in pretty late and spent most the day relaxing. I took another long nap in the afternoon. I guess I was a little more tired than I realized. There is also something about when I feel that crispness in the air like fall is right around the corner. It puts me in hibernation mode.

Monday was nice to have off. We went to Tom Jones (diner) for lunch and then went to the store to get some things so that I could make a spaghetti dinner. We settled in for the rest of the afternoon and then I made dinner and watched Bachelor Pad. I wish I’d ever gotten into that show. It turned out to be not what I thought at all and I cannot stand all of the backstabbing.

What a great weekend~ good shopping and food, you can't go wrong! That Loco Lime beer sounds yummy! I am a bit disappointed by Bachelor Pad, too! and there are some characters that annoy me and I kept hoping they'd be voted off by now! I thought there would be more interesting competitions. Oh well.

Is that a place where you can create your own 6-pack? I love doing that..my friends brother hosts a Beer Bowl every year, so I am always looking for an off the wall beer to rate!
I know what you mean with Bachelor Pad....I didn't even finish the episode last night :(

Mmm. Don Pablos..yes please! All the ones here went out of business, I didn't know there were any left!

That beer sounds delish...now that I can enjoy the adult beverages again I'm having fun trying new things!

Sounds like a great weekend!

I know what you mean about fall. I just want to hunker down and cuddle it up!

My husband and I love good beer! Seriously, probably our favorite thing to do is go by a brewery or a specialty shop and pick out new ones!
