Time for a weekend wrap up!
I had Friday off, again. My shift got canceled and I was ecstatic! It was amazing to sleep two nights in a row...even if I woke up super early each time :) Also, for the record I only have 16 work days left until I take three weeks off before school. One month. I can do it!
So on Friday, Nick & I had some errands to run. We did some shopping and got a yummy (& pretty healthy!) lunch at P.F.Changs. I had a salad and steamed shrimp and veggie dumplings. Nom Nom!

Later that night, we went to Nick's brother's lacrosse game. I don't understand lacrosse one bit but I love when the guys hit each other. Cracks me up!
It was crazy being back at Elder (where all the guys in Nick's family went to high school). We haven't been there since our senior year of high school. For those who aren't familiar with Cincinnati, the city is split into an "Eastside" and "Westside." The Westside is more traditional and they're known for the private all-girl/all-guy Catholic schools. It's weird for an Eastsider on the Westside - it's just different in an unexplainable way. Eastside is the best side :)

After dinner that night, this happened. We decided to take it easy and stay in with wine and probably something on the Food Network. Nick and I don't agree on much TV-wise unless it's about food. Are we at all surprised by this? No.
Weekends are my downfall. Every single time. I need some tough love. Dear Chris Powell, please move-in with me on weekends only. Help.
The good news: Saturday morning we woke up super early for spinning class with Nick's mom and dad. I don't usually get a workout in on Saturday so it was nice to finally do that! Poor Nick has never been to spinning before...he was so sore(and mad at me for agreeing to go)!
Saturday night we went to the Red's baseball game! And this happened. I can't even. That's not even the worst of it. Forget the $9 ballpark beer. This was NOT part of the plan.
Positive time. We did have amazing tickets in the moon deck in right field, though. Home run territory!
Now for the exciting part. We made it on the jumbotron! This has been my goal since we started dating (hello bucket list!). All of a sudden, I looked up and saw us up on the big screen! Nick decided it would be a good idea to grab me and kiss me in front of the 40,000 attendees...and I'm not complaining. I could hear everyone laughing. I wish I had a picture to prove it! A few people I knew that were at the game texted me/facebooked me about it. Just too funny!
That's the weekend in a nutshell (if I had to pick, it would be a pistachio nut shell. delicious.) Like I said in the last post, I took a big break from blogging. I gotta snap out of the laziness and remember that this is supposed to be my personal creative outlet. If you like it, wonderful! If not, that's ok too!
Have a great week, everyone!
