Picture Perfect Weekend

Ahhhh, the weekend! I can’t believe that I used to not have one! Well, not have them off…you know what I mean. For the first 3 years after graduating from college and having a “proper job” I also continued to bar tend on the weekends. It sucked! Now I enjoy every minute of those 2 full days off. This weekend was a particularly mellow one filled with the perfect ratio of relaxation and fun activities with minimal chores 😉

My weekend in (mostly) pictures:

On Friday night Kelly and Marjan came over for some arts, crafts and Moscow Mules. I saw this awesome medal display idea on The Hippie Triathlete and decided we needed to give it a go. You take all your old race bibs and use Modge Podge glue to laminate them onto a piece of wood, then add some hooks for your medals…genius!

Getting crafty! My boyfriend just had knee surgery as well…in case you are wondering why there are 2 sets of crutches and a cane in the background lol

The finished product inspiration posted by The Hippie Triathlete! Thanks for the idea 🙂

On Saturday I met up with my friend Kyrina for a chatty 2.5 hr bike ride. We stopped off in Laguna Beach for some coffee and a muffin top (yep, they just serve the tops) at Madison Square Garden Cafe. If you’ve never been…GO! It is full of all sorts of cool stuff, like meditating frogs 🙂

FullSizeRender (5)We rode back to Newport just in time to join our triathlon team, NCTT, for their annual Santa Beer Mile race. The “race” consists of downing a beer then running a 1/4 mile loop and repeating that 4 times! The girls opted for a relay instead 😉 Definitely entertaining to watch and we raised some money for charity.

We went to Sol in Newport so we could enjoy this view.FullSizeRender (10)We topped off the afternoon wandering (slowly) around a few antique stores and the Army Surplus store in Old Towne Orange, where I found this gem of a hat…FullSizeRender (11)

Sunday was a lot less eventful and worth writing about..but relaxing none the less. Yoga, Skype session, cooking, chat with the neighbors cat…all good stuff! Boooo to Monday 😉
