Hello everyone and happy 2017 🙂
I’m sitting here in disbelief that not only has Thanksgiving passed, but now, Christmas AND New Years?!? And now all of a sudden I’m sitting back at my desk at work *sigh* #timeflies
So per usual, come Mondays I have my usual Weekend Recap but yesterday Andrew and I went on an impromptu day trip which left me with no time to write and post. So I’m back today with the long weekend recap 🙂 It’s been 3 days deep into 2017 and I already have a yeasayer feeling that it’s going to be a good one!
So my weekend started on-
Quick debrief; Andrew has been searching for a new job because his commute every day is 50 miles one way! #crazy. After doing it for 3 years I can imagine that it was getting very old and tiresome. So needless to say; he finally accepted a position about 3 miles away from our apartment sooo that was a total WIN 🙂
He didn’t want to be in the picture with the balloons I got him. SMH
And then we proceeded to order a ton of sushi take out *heart eyes*
Andrew went in for his last day of work and I had it off, so all morning I was running around; coffee, laundry, cleaned the whole apartment, grocery shopping, all that jazz.
And finally got to sit down in peace and work on my blog post for the day.
That night, I made Chicken Caesar Salad wraps.. We made tacos two nights prior and had so many wheat wraps left so we were like hmm what else can we make using the wraps so viola!
This guy finally came home and proceeded to buy us movie tickets to a movie I’ve been wanting to see
And before the movies we watched the Celtics game to which Britt was at and was sitting FLOOR SIDE! We spotted her and Hector and I obviously had to take a picture of them. Hector in the yellow hat & Britt in the green Celtics hat up front!
And then that night we saw….
My quick little Rotten Tomato review on the movie: The magic and wizardry was all so very fulfilling but the story line was just mediocre to me. I expected a majority of it to be taken place in the Wizardry World but instead it took place in NYC so I think that’s where it fell short for me.
NYE! Okay so, originally Andrew and I were going to trek out into Boston and go to some bar or club but to be honest the thought of buying $50+ tickets, cover charges, lines, and having it be PACKED was just not appealing to me. I’ve been there done that…
So instead, Andrew’s parents invited us to their house where Andrew’s parents, brother, sister in law, and nieces, and Brownie the pup were going to ring in the New Year together. They lured us with food, drinks, games, dancing, anddd most importantly, it was a PAJAMA PARTY. I can’t turn down a pajama party.
So here’s the slew of pictures to go with the night:
Andrew’ sister in law, Evelyn, is the sweetest and gets me and him the black and gold crown/hat combo. She knows what I love 😉
We played games with the girls
The most intense game of Jenga ever
And this was right before he lost LOL
The girls singing some karaoke
We LOVE this dog. I swear every time I looked over at Andrew he was holding Brownie, and if it wasn’t him then I probably was.
NYD! We woke up, still at Andrew’s parents. Had breakfast with everyone and watched Finding Dory- FINALLY! Super cute!
Almost as cute as this. This picture melts my heart…
The Tres Amigos
We got ready and then headed down to my mom’s house for a family get-together-lunch. My mom literally cheffed up a Korean buffet for us all.
So here’s that slew of pictures now…
Mama and sister ❤
We left in a severe food coma but totally worth it. Andrew and I were so anxious to get back home later that day and just lay in our bed- which is exactly what we did.
Can’t wait to catch up with everyone and read about their New Year festivities!!!
Wishing everyone a successful 2017!
