Memorial Weekend 2014

Hello Tuesday! You aren't so bad considering I have the day off. Don't be too jealous because I did have to work half a day yesterday. Holidays in healthcare??? aint no such thing! 
Memorial Weekend was pretty laid back and low key for us and we loved every second. 
I started off friday by cleaning the house, getting a workout in, getting a manicure and picking up fresh flowers for the house. 
Friday night baby brother, KR and I headed to the nearest patio for beers and sushi. Did I mention that baby brother is our latest house guest? He moved in a few weeks ago and is planning on staying with us till mid/late July. Kev and I are both ecstatic to have him here. Absolutely.over.the.moon. We may just not let him leave....at least for a while haha. 

We went to Drakes in NKY, a restaurant that is originally out of Lexington. We felt right at home getting our sushi on with some crab ragoon rolls. The boys sipped some brews and I enjoyed sipping my little beer flight. 

Saturday we had a date with the Jacksons (our faves - Chris and Dana) and the pool! 
Kev packed us a cooler full of drinks and I worked on snacks and broke out the skinny girl margarita. 
We had a blast catching up and laying by the pool. We ended our evening with Chris and Dana on our patio with take out Dewey's pizza and also picked up a strawberry shortcake for dessert. 
It was the perfect Saturday!  

Kev and I headed back to the pool on Sunday and have made fast friends with our neighbors. We really enjoyed getting to know all of them better. We are in love with the pool being so close to our house. I think it's safe to say we will be making regular appearances. 

Monday Kev finished up some mulch work around the house while I spent the morning at work. Major SUCK! We waited for baby brother to get back in town (we were starting to have withdrawals!) and headed to dinner and a movie in Newport. We saw Godzilla in 3D IMAX and I was impressed with how much I enjoyed it. 

I hated to see it all come to an end. Back to the grind today... catching up on housework, laundry and grocery shopping. I do enjoy this part time work/part time stay at home wife gig. 
Happy Tuesday Y'all!!!!

So jealous you have a pool close by . Seriously the ONLY thing my neighborhood is missing! And I am seriously counting down the days until my last day of work. I am not going back after she is born and the stay at home mom/wife gig is calling my name!!

So jelly of your pool time! Last night I had a debate with myself at the store, over whether or not to buy the inflatable pool, ha. Obviously I can't "swim" in it but I could lounge! ;) Pool is definitely one of the criteria for the next neighborhood where we live!
