This turned out to be one of my favorite weekends in a long while. Everything was just so ....pleasant.
I had plans to celebrate one of my closest friend's birthday on Friday night with a girls night-in that involved sweatpants/comfy clothes, wine, pizza, and that kind of laughter that comes from deep within the belly. I will never stop being grateful for the group of girls that are my friends. They absolutely make my life worth living.

Saturday, Ryan and I had a fun lunch date (he enjoyed sushi for the first time!!), did a few errands, and then finally started a project that we've been talking about for months now. More on that later in the week but here's a sneak peek:
While we were working outside, Mulder sat patiently and watched us.

By early evening, we were deciding what to do for the night and came to the conclusion that staying in was all we really wanted to do. We invited some friends over for an epic challenge of world domination and broke out the RISK.

|But then Emily ended up taking over the entire board.|
Well played, Emily
We took a special shot of whiskey to toast our friend, Ed, passing the bar and had a few drinks throughout the night. I bought this Robust Porter by Foolproof Brewing Company but was ultimately very disappointed. It was way too bitter for me and left a weird after-taste.
Ryan worked on some electrical projects today while I did some cooking (sweet and tangy salsa and maple butternut squash and sweet potato bisque) . While Ryan was working on the lighting projects in the house, I assisted every now and again and ended up making my way into the attic (I just transferred $5.00 to my savings account)

Questions for you.
