Weekend Recap

So I know that it’s Tuesday and if you are recapping a weekend, that should happen on Monday, but oh well! :)

On Friday,  Jeff and I had a much-needed date night.  We actually hadn’t been out on a date just the two of us in over a month.  We usually end up going to dinner with friends or something, which I am definitely not complaining— I am so thankful for the friends in our life— but it was nice to have a night just the two of us. Then this happened.

On Saturday, my best friend was in town and we went out for some retail therapy and lunch.  We ate at Which Wich— I was really craving egg salad and theirs is so good!  I was expecting to have to just order it on bed of lettuce or something since I didn’t want the bread [I've been trying really hard to eat gluten-free lately], but they apparently have an option called the “Lettuce-wich” where they will make any sandwich wrapped in lettuce instead of bread.  It was DELICIOUS! I will be eating there much more frequently now that I know this is an option.

Whoops…

How was your weekend?  I’d love to hear about it!

High Five for Friday

It’s finally Friday and I am linking up with Lauren from www.thelaurenelizabeth.com.  You should definitely check out her blog!

Some highlights from this week are:

1.  Classes are done! There is a week of exams to get through (for the students, not for me), but since I work at a university that means we are VERY close to summer break!

2. I’ve been watching my favorite show, Gilmore Girls, for the umpteenth time.  I  have all 7 seasons on DVD, so started a couple of weeks ago on Season 1, and am on Season 6 now.  I love coming home, crashing on the couch, and watching a couple of episodes to unwind at night.

3.  This article made its way around Facebook this week, and I recommend everyone read it! Let’s just say, I was extrememly convicted by it.  I had never thought of “gluttony” in this way before.

4.  We get to see our best friends this weekend!  Matt and Justine live in Raleigh, so we don’t get to see them very often, so when they come to town, it’s very exciting!  Justine also has a blog so make sure to take a look at it:  celebrateyourlife365.wordpress.com.

5.  Lastly, I am excited to catch up on some much needed sleep! The last couple of weeks have been very hectic, and this will be one of the few weekends that we can relax and hang out at the house.
