My Weekend, in Gifs

This weekend was actually a pretty good one, so naturally, I didn't take any pictures. I know, seriously, I'm the worst blogger in the universe.

But I still want to tell you all about my weekend, so to make up for the lack of actual pictures, I have found some pretty hilarious and accurate gifs. They're going to make you feel like you were actually there. I promise.

Friday night, we went out to dinner for Garrett's cousin's birthday. We went to Flemings Steakhouse. Have any of you ever been there? To summarize it for you: $$$$$$$$$. It's so expensive, they don't even have prices on the menu online. When we found out the party was taking place here, this is how I felt:

And then I realized that I was going to miss the Opening Ceremonies on Friday night because of $dinner$, and that made me SUPER angry.

As it turns out, I didn't miss that much anyway, because apparently all the Olympic rings didn't open. (I obviously DVRed it and watched the whole thing yesterday.)

And then I realized I was going to get to dress up, so that made it a little bit better. I love dressing up.

And then we got to the restaurant, and started eating, and everything was so goooooood. So the rest of the night went something like this:

With maybe a little bit of this:

We slept at his cousin's house on Friday night because alcohol. but there was no sleeping in on Saturday morning because they have kids. Two kids under five. Hanging out with them is something like this:

But thankfully, coffee.

Also, I forgot my face wash/moisturizer, so I woke up looking something like this:

After spending most of the day over there on Saturday, we finally trekked back to our apartment. Well. we stopped at Cookout first.

We lounged around the rest of the night, and then slept for approx. one million hours.

Sunday morning we woke up feeling super refreshed. After some morning snuggles, we got a few errands done, like grocery shopping and taking the recycling to the recycling center. (Can you believe our apartment doesn't recycle? I'm still not over it, and we've lived here for six months.) Anyway, we have meals purchased and planned for the whole week, and that is just the best feeling.

I also swung by Target to look at the new Peter Pilotto stuff, and I want it all. I think it's one of my favorite Target collaborations. I always get excited about them, and then they're just a little TOO out there for me. But this one is floral and obnoxious in the best way. Even though we all know how I feel about florals.

The rest of the day was for the Olympics. Specifically, figure skating. Although I can't watch too much ice dancing without thinking about Blades of Glory. And then I just LOL to myself.

Oh, and we ordered pizza. I mean, I had to cancel out Friday's fancy meal with kid food the rest of the weekend. What are you gonna do, right?

So there you have it! That was our moderately exciting, fancy expensive weekend. I hope these hilarious gifs and witty commentary made up for the lack of actual pictures. I'll start being a better blogger.... someday. Maybe.

OMG that first GIF. I sent it toy husband a few days ago, and was like "What happens when you become a parent."

I'm feeling the fact that this entire blog entry revolves around food, because my life is basically spent waiting for and dreaming about my next meal.

I'm actually dying because of your gifs. I am loving this idea because I'm probably the worst at taking pictures... sometimes I wonder how I'm even a blogger.

I was not that impressed with the opening ceremony... but I love to watch ice skating and skiing and snowboarding. Actually, I just love the olympics. And pizza.

Yeah I am one of those people who feel that some restaurants are so overpriced it is like throwing money away but we rarely go out to fancy restaurants and in fact most of the time Tim will be like can't we just go to the club where it is cheaper and I give in and say yes why not.
