Living for the Weekend

Happy Monday!!

I had a pretty awesome weekend and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

Friday night was Date Night!!!

We went to Coco 500 in San Francisco and truly enjoyed ourselves. It’s been a while since we went out to dinner, so I dressed up super sexy, in a short purple t-shirt dress, and some high white wedges. The dress was pretty short, but it’s summer, and I like to show off the body that I work so hard for. 

As soon as we walked into the restaurant I saw him, my boyfriends, Father’s, good friend. I started freaking out, of course it wasn’t that big of a deal, but all I could think of was my boyfriend father hearing about how short my dress was. Tits and Ass that’s pretty much all you could see. Oh well. It was date night, and I’m 30, not dead. My boyfriend said it was fine, but I must admit I’m still a little freaked out, total embarrassment might be the best word to describe my feelings.

Saturday we attended a family BBQ, pool party. I was excited about the heat, but when we arrived at our destination I couldn’t believe how hot it truly was. 92 degrees felt like 100 degrees. That didn’t stop the party, we got to hang out with family and friends that I haven’t seen in a while. The party was great, good food, good company, and a pool to jump in when you got too hot. I don’t like going to parties empty handed so I made these Snickerdoodle bars. They were amazing!

These things were great!! Super moist, a little spicy, and very satisfying.

On Sunday we went to the Marin Italian Street Drawing Festival.It's all Chalk!

The festival was sweet, small, and very family orientated. There were a few events going on in the city: Stern Grove Festival, and Gay Pride, it was nice to stay away from the madness and enjoy such beautiful works of art. The artists are talents, and pretty dedicated. It was over 90 degrees yesterday.

That was my weekend.
Lots of fun stuff!!!

This month I’m moving so I have to put some of my marketing campaigned on hold but that’s ok.

My challenges are still going strong. My body feels tight and taunt. All is well in my world.

Today should be an interesting day to say the least. Shopping for furniture with the boyfriend is always an adventure.

Enjoy your Monday and this upcoming heat wave.
