**Weekend Update, a "Blate", & Easter!**

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great Easter :)

On Friday, I got to meet another great gal from blog-land. Lindsay, who you might know from co-hosting Fitness Friday, and I met up downtown for lunch. She was in town with her hubby for vacation and since he was out golfing for the day, we decided to meet up. 

We had a great time and talked for close to three hours! It was like having lunch with an old friend :)
(Did I mention that we were wearing almost identical outifts??! She has such great taste ;)

Friday night, S and I went out for pizza at Mellow Mushroom with a few of S's friends from work and their families.

Saturday morning, S and I went out for a bagel breakfast, but shortly thereafter, he had to leave for Florida. He was going to meet up with his parents and youngest brother for his brother's spring break baseball tournament.

It was nice having the day to myself to do whatever I wanted, however, I quickly realized how much I missed him already! I guess I better get used to him being gone because soon will be the days when he has to go back out to sea. I still think it was mostly because I was jealous of him getting to go on a little vacay though ;)

Since S was off to the Panhandle, I decided to take Gunner to the dog park. We were there for 2.5 hours! He was having a blast playing in the water and there are always great people there to chat with.

On Sunday, I spent the day with Lindsey, my first IRL friend from blog-land, and her family for Easter. I was pretty bummed that not only was S out of town, but so were several of our close friends. I was so happy though to have a place to spend the day with great friends. We ate some yummy food and even sat outside in the sun for a while.

I made homemade Smoked Gouda and Cheddar Mac n Cheese and Caramel Apple Cake (recipes to come soon!) Sunshine compliments of Mother Nature.

That's pretty much it! I have a ton to do this week before I leave for Florida on Thursday myself. My cousin is getting married in Ft. Myers on Saturday and I can't wait to see some family!! The wedding is going to be very small so I won't get to see everyone (not even my parents), but it will still be great to see everyone since it's been a while.

A little sneak peak of my casual spring wedding look:

I absolutely love this Shoshanna dress.

Have a great week y'all!!

I still have yet to meet a blogger in real life.. Hopefully soon! That's awesome y'all had the chance to meet up. I've been wanting to try the Mellow Mushroom for a while now.. is it really good? Gunner is too cute. I was loving the pictures of him on IG this weekend! We were supposed to go to the dog park this weekend but the weather was awful.. boo. Glad you had a good weekend :)

I have not gotten to eat @ Mellow Mushroom, so maybe I will suggest that for the next date night! I have met several of my blogging friends IRL, and love them!

What fun meeting a Blog friend! I wish our dog liked dog parks, he's a baby when it comes to other dogs that aren't my parents lab. That mac n cheese looks delicious.

It looks like you had a nice weekend!

Ooooo Fort Myers, one of my favorite places! Sounds like a fun wedding - can't wait to see photos :) It's exciting that S gets to go on a fun little trip, but I know how much you must already miss him! (The first day or two is even fun for you, though, getting the place to yourself I bet ;) )

What a sweet message! I love that!!! Also love the dress! Just found out we have a sub ball coming up so I finally get to go dress shopping! So excited! Have you tried rent the runway? My step mom did it and her dress was gorgeous.

Glad you had such a great weekend!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Sounds like you had such a great weekend! Girlfriend dates are so fun! I think it's too cute that you guys ended up dressed so similarly! And that is such a sweet note! Glad you have Gunner to keep you company still! :)

Elizabeth @The Better Belle Project said...

Ahh, i can't wait to blog about our blate in a few weeks! (wow that's a weird sentence haha)

That dress is adorable!! I'm glad you had a good Easter :)

Love it!!! I noticed we were dressed similarly too! ;) It was such a blessing meeting you - I absolutely adored you - it was definitely like lunch with an old friend.
