Memorial Weekend 2015

Sometimes sleeping in on a Monday is all you need to feel refreshed for the new week. That and knowing this will be a short work week makes it that much sweeter.

After work on Friday we headed two hours west to Sarasota to visit my in-laws for a couple nights. We all went out to dinner to celebrate my MIL's birthday at Texas Roadhouse. It was good to spend some quality time with them. After dinner we met up with some friends downtown for some beverages and catching up. I didn't manage to snap any photos from this night.

On Saturday morning, K and I headed to Siesta Key beach and luckily got perfect weather.



 We lounged in the sun for several hours and then we went to Siesta Key Oyster Bar in the village for some lunch.


On Sunday morning we started our short road trip home. Lola also came with us for the weekend and stayed with my in-laws while we went to the beach and out and about.


Sunday afternoon was a friend's baby shower which was fun catching up with friends and seeing some new babies in the group.


Monday was pure relaxation. I binge watched Kendra On Top while blogging and then got some stuff done around the house. Late in the evening K and I did some grilling for dinner to cap off Memorial Day.
