needed to have a really good weekend.

This winter has been plagued with illness, bad news, loss and some strained relationships…and despite my best efforts to “go with the flow”…I have to admit that lately…I’ve been feeling a bit blue.

So, when I found out about the “Beerfest” event, I decided to purchase Andrew and I tickets on a whim. The idea of doing something totally different from our regular routine seemed like a refreshing idea.

We had so. much. fun. Andrew, unfortunately, was on call at work so he couldn’t taste test the beers, but I think he enjoyed the people watching. I was feeling adventurous and tried a plethora of uniquely brewed beers (spread out between lots of bread and water!) Some were sweet & rich, some spicy and odd…and some classicly “beer like”. It was just the adventure and distraction I needed to get out of my head and out of my funk!

In addition to our beer fest adventure, we found time for some couple work out time, we tried out a new chili recipe, I even found time for a Sunday afternoon nap, and we *gasp* finished our Entourage marathon. Now Andrew is feeling blue! 😉

The picture update is below, have a terrific week!!

I was feeling less than ideal heading into the weekend. Very sick! My lovely husband picked me up the essentials and a little surprise. <3

Spent Saturday morning blogging, listening to incredibly good music, sipping on coffee and painting my nails. 🙂

Sunday Selfie. Still learning to love my “less is more” makeup approach. And wondering WHEN my eye will be back to normal.
