The Weekend with Hurricane Matthew


With Hurricane Matthew approaching us on Thursday afternoon and a mandatory curfew set until Saturday at 7 am, we planned to spend the 3-day weekend at home and just pray we didn't get hit too hard from the storm.


The anticipation of a Category 4 hurricane heading towards us was quite scary so we stocked up on supplies last week and prepared for the worst.  I can't speak for other parts of the country but we got very lucky with no major damage to our house and didn't lose electricity either. The curfew was lifted sooner than expected on Friday afternoon so we headed out for some dinner at Outback.


Most of Saturday was spent cleaning and doing errands before taking Lola out to enjoy the beautiful weather at a lakeside restaurant and market.




Sunday was another gorgeous day although I managed to be a coach potato for most of it watching TV and blogging. Lola was worn out from all the fun on Saturday.


For Sunday dinner, I tried my hand at making Eggplant Parmesan Lasagna, which turned out amazing (recipe coming soon). I enjoyed all the relaxing and I'm thankful the hurricane has fizzled instead of looping back around and hitting Florida a second time as initially predicted.

  13. I'm glad that y'all didn't get hit too hard by the hurricane and that it didn't loop back around and hit y'all again! Luckily, Houston hasn't been hit by a hurricane while we've lived here (it did while I was in college, but I missed out on it), so I can't even imagine what it's like with everybody trying to get supplies and everything. The weather for the rest of the weekend looked beautiful, and I'm glad that you got to enjoy it!

  16. I'm so glad you guys are ok and there was little damage. I was thinking of you guys for sure!! I've been through a hurricane (when I lived in PR) and that was not fun at all. Pretty scary.

    Hope you have a great rest of your week Emily!
