Galentine’s Day Recap

Hey Internet! I don’t know about you, but I have to work/school today and Monday’s got me being like this:

Tired Puppy

BUT I had a great Galentine’s/Valentine’s Day weekend and I wanted to pop in and share some pictures!

The weekend started at a BBQ restaurant with my carpool buddy on Friday. GUYS. This place. The food was AMAZING. ANDPLUSALSO? THERE WAS A CAT! AND the cat looked so much like Binx. I called him Binx II, and he crawled right into my lap and I maybe almost cried. Pictures:

If you are ever in the area, the place is called Yellow Dog Eats and it is the best.

After lunch I went home and Adorabeezle and I finished Broadchurch (its a BBC crime series and its AMAZING. Go watch it on Netflix. Right now.)

Also, this happened. It’s a common occurrence, really, but I can never get over the cuteness:

Cat Love

Then I turned in for the night and spent some time reading Make it Happen. I’ve been reading this for a little over a month now, and it has been SO GOOD for my heart. I’ve been really savoring it and taking copious notes. So. Much. Goodness.

Make it Happen

Then Saturday was a sleep in and be productive kind of day. It seems weird, but I cherish the days I am free enough to really clean the kitchen. Just doing laundry and getting all the dishes done and organizing things. I LIVE for that on the weekends… Does this mean I’m officially a grown up? Maybe. Also? I cleaned ALL of my make up brushes. That may seem like small potatoes to you if you have your life together, but this was a big deal for me. I’m not going to tell you how long it’s been since I’ve done this, because I want you to think I’m a fancy person who isn’t living in filth. Just go with it.

A Thing of Beauty

After the productiveness, Adorabeezle came home from work and we hit up EPCOT for Galentine’s Day. (If you don’t know what Galentine’s Day is you need to watch Parks and Rec ASAP!!!)

We grabbed some fish and chips (I ate the fish. Adorabeezle ate the chips). and then we headed to France where we waited 20 minutes in line for a cocktail and then 20 minutes in line for the patisserie. We regret nothing.Fish and Chips Drank Drankin in EPCOTRaspberry Mousse

The drink was a specialty orange passion fruit slushie, that came in a “souvenir glass,” which I thought was kind of silly since it was just a sphere and made my drink cost three extra dollars, but it was delicious and I have NO REGRETS.

After Epcot, we came home and I treated myself to a nice lush bath bomb bath complete with Christmas lights, candles, poor girl sangria (wine with a splash of oj and some cut up oranges) a touch of chocolate and a episode of Fixer Upper on my Kindle.

Bath of Champions

Sunday was church and then ALL THE ERRANDS. I did some cooking for the week and finished some apartment projects I’ve been putting off. I also put together a breathtaking doughnut diorama. Because I don’t play around when it comes to holidays or doughnuts.

The rest of the night was spent with netflix and putting that souvenir glass to good use:

Succulent globe succulent

(yes the succulent is fake – who do you think I am? a real grown up person?) But I’m fairly certain the moss I bought from Joann’s is real… which kind of freaked me out…

Anyway, that was my Galentine’s weekend, Internet. How was yours?

    It looks like you had a pretty amazing day! I love when I go to shops or restaurants and they have resident pets. It automatically makes the place that much more option. The nursery where I get our Christmas tree every year has three cats, and I never want to leave until I’ve said “hi” to all of them and given them ear scratches 🙂

    You are a master at quality of life. You are like a crafter, but of fun life experiences. And the pic of the cat that looked like Binx made me cry.
