What a wonderful weekend

This past weekend was amazing.  The weather was beautiful and I definitely took advantage of it.  I'm just sad it had to end...I really didn't want to head back to work this morning.

After a miserable Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, I got home extremely relieved that the weekend had arrived.  We planned to celebrate Lionel's birthday this weekend (he turned 34 last week!  He's ancient!), so Friday night we stayed in to relax and get some sleep before the party on Saturday.

We spent Saturday afternoon running around buying food, drinks and a barbecue and then we had about 10 friends over Saturday night for a barbecue in our fabulous garden on our wonderful new barbecue.  We ate tons of great food (including the fantastic hamburgers that I made), we drank a ton and had lots of fun and conversation.  It was so nice to be able to have people over and to be able to have a barbecue!

Sunday was mostly spent cleaning and recovering, but we did barbecue again, so that was nice.  All in all it was a pretty good weekend and I really needed to have some fun (and a few drinks) after my miserable week!


  1. Oh, I'm so jealous of your garden and your grill!! That is maybe the *one* thing I miss fro my life in Bretagne. :)

  2. I am jealous! I wish I had a yard, garden and/or a grill. Glad you got to relax after a hard week!

  3. Yes, I'm thrilled to have a garden and a grill! I was so excited when I found out we could have an apartment with a garden and still live on the metro! I knew I had to have this place and I haven't regretted it. I'm looking forward to months of barbeques and meals out on the terrasse, not to mention fresh vegetables grown in the garden...
