Yesterday I realized that this is our first weekend home in our new apartment without anything that we have to do. Its nice to feel like we can do whatever we want and maybe work on some of those things that have been nagging in the back of our minds, like house repairs, new job applications and a little cleaning. Its much less stressful when you don’t have to rush to get it all done before you go somewhere or have people over.
To kick off the weekend, I decided to make a nice little Friday afternoon surprise. Nothing says “after school/work” quite like homemade cookies, so I treated Garrett to some fresh out of the oven snickerdoodle cookies when he got home.
After eating our fair share, we packed up a tin of them to take to the city to see our good friends Alison and Dave.
We checked out their awesome new digs (should have taken more pictures!) and let Whiskey run wild all over the carpet. He seemed quite happy at their new home, so we headed out for dinner at a local pub.
Tom Cruise tends to come off as a little bit crazy in real life, but I still love him in action movies. It was a toss up between this or The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but I’ve got about 100 pages left of the book and I don’t want to see it in theatres before I finish.
Its funny to think that a few years ago I would have for sure gone out to the bars/clubs on a Saturday night and now the idea of a movie date with the boyfriend and then a late night walk with the pooch sound so much more appealing. Here’s to growing up (and saving a ton of money)!
