Long Weekend Rain and Some Shine

Since our return from the Cuba cruise on Wednesday last week, we were in need of a low key weekend to relax and get stuff done around the house. Plus with the weather forecasted to be rainy all weekend, we kept our plans at minimum.

We met up with some friends for a quick happy hour and a bite to eat. The rest of the night was relaxing.

We went to Maddie's 3rd birthday party which had a cute mermaid theme. Poor birthday girl came down with tonsillitis last week but she was a trooper for her birthday party giving hugs to everyone and enjoying her birthday cake. 

After the party we stopped downtown to watch some football (soccer) at one of our old stomping grounds.

Then a quick stroll around Lake Eola before the heavens came crashing down.

Sunday was overcast and rainy which made for the perfect lazy day at home. We watched Game Night which had us cracking up and enjoyed some wine later in the evening after getting all the "Sunday things" done.

 K tried his hand at a new Eggs Benedict recipe with goat cheese crumbles, which was delish but pretty rich in flavor. We were hoping for a break in the rain to lounge by the pool but it stayed overcast all day so the couch was my best friend for most of the day.

We grilled BBQ ribs for dinner and had a relaxing Memorial Day/Evening.

FYI: Something weird is going on with my blog and I'm not receiving email notifications from your comments so I can't respond. Bear with me as I try to figure out this glitch.

  2. I'm glad you were able to enjoy a long relaxing weekend!

  3. I found out the glitch these last few days is Blogger working out a Cookies thing. Many haven’t been getting email notifications including me. Loving your low key weekend. The eggs Benedict sound great! Hope your week goes smooth! xo

  4. I hate glitches.

    Nice low key weekend to ease back into life!

  5. There is all kinds of crazy business going on with blogs I feel like. I am showing up as a no reply blogger still and have no clue why. I never had this issue before?? Hopefully your glitch will sort itself out. Sounds like you guys had a good weekend. Tis the season for BBQ Ribs!

  6. I am lobbying my man to go on that cruise with me as it is perfect with our travel goals and his custody schedule. Wasn't that soccer match fun to watch saturday? Sorry the weather ruined yesterday, but sounds like a great weekend overall!

  7. Awww, I love the colors and details of the mermaid party. So cute. I needed a low-key MDW, too. I don't think I did much outside of watching the Great British Baking show, lol. I've been having the same issue with comments on word press. I got ONE email notification last week... and everything else isn't coming in. So strange!
