Preston and I got back from vacation on Friday, so you BET you’ll have a whoooole bunch of vacation-related posts coming your way. But before I start all of that, I wanted to get my last teeny recap posted and out of the way. I had it *this close* to finished before we left and figured I would for sure find the time (like literally ten minutes) to put the last few finishing touches on it while we were gone. But that did not happen. It was a GO-GO-GO vacation. Which was perfect 😉
Anyhow… here’s a fairly quick recap of the week and a half before we left!
We had a fantastic streak of cool evenings, so I went for a bunch of runs right after work.
And lots of walks in some sprinkling weather!
Trying ALL the pumpkin stuff from Trader Joe’s. These pumpkin ravioli with browned butter and fried sage was so good.
If you follow my personal Instagram, you know that it was a weekend FILLED with birthday festivities before we left for our trip. My sister’s birthday was the week before, but her whole family took turns getting sick that week. So we had to reschedule her birthday dinner. And Preston’s thirtieth birthday was just a couple days before we left. So we celebrated all weekend long.
Old Spaghetti Factory dinner for my sis…
Where nieceling got an Ariel balloon “animal”!
Literally three sushi meals for boyfriend. Because it’s his fave. This was from lunch just the two of us. We had a big dinner with his fam and mine (I didn’t get great pics 🙁 ), and then on his actual birthday I took him out to a really nice sushi dinner.
We also got our friends together for a little pizza party and games.
Seriously. So much celebrating.
And I didn’t want to do a full cake right before we left on our trip (we had a big cake for the family), so I picked up a few small goodies from a bakery – salted caramel tart, anyone????
I mean, can they be any cuter???
That’s about it! It was just a week and a half spent trying to find the time and energy to get ready for our trip between all the birthday festivities! Which was actually super fun. 😉
I’ll be back tomorrow with the first photo dump from our vacay 😉
