No Clouds Allowed

What a weekend! It's our first weekend at home since the wedding....and the first non-crazy one in about a month. We have reeeeally enjoyed the down time and can't wait to have a few more in the coming weeks!

Although it was a short week, it felt like I worked a few extra days. Catching up after being out of the office for 8 day is INSANE! To make it a little easier on us, we went out for dinner Thursday for a little relaxation time. We went to one of our favorite places not far from home and ate on the patio. And the best part? They had some live music that we really liked. It was perfect! 
One of  my favorite outfits right now.

 Friday morning started with a trip to the DMV to have my drivers license changed. I was happy enough about changing my name that I wasn't too bothered by having to stand in the long line. Good thing I didn't get too worked up about it--I lucked out and got the 2nd number of the day and I was out of there in about 20 minutes! #Jackpot

Friday night we met up at a friend's house before going out to a super fun concert at Mercy Lounge followed by an impromptu (and super fun) night downtown. The band we went to see was The Black Cadillacs--their sound is very similar to The Black Keys.

Isn't he cute? I'm still getting used to (and LOVING) calling him my husband!
 We originally planned to go on a canoeing/camping trip Saturday, but the weather had other ideas! We had rain ALL weekend! We are thankful it wasn't extreme like it has been in other parts of the US, plus it gave us the perfect excuse to stay inside and relax. So, Saturday was full of errands, housework, and lots of catching up on rest. We took a chance on a movie we weren't too sure about....Sinister. We totally lucked out! It kept us on the edge of our seats the whole time and the ending was great.

Today was pretty much another perfect day. Breakfast, lots of Thank You cards (all of them actually!), more errands, and family dinner.

Hope your weekend was just as relaxing!

The new design is perfect for you :) I remember how relaxing the first weekend after the wedding was for us too. I almost didn't know what to do with myself! xoxo

What a fun weekend! I love wine and music on the patio. You did luck out at DMV. Last time I was there, I had a 90 minute wait (((I needed wine after that crap))). Sinister was good. I saw it in theaters. They are making a second one. I saw you on the weekend link up, come say hey sometime!
