living for the weekend

We had another fabulous and fun weekend at home. After a rough week at work, I got up early in the afternoon for a hair appointment with my amazing hair stylist. 

...and after three years of highlighting my hair, I wanted a bigger change. We talked about it, and Tracy suggested going ombre. I went for it! It's definitely more noticeable in person, and I really love the change. She is the best! Plus, she's hilarious, and I love spending the afternoon sipping on a glass of wine at the salon. 
Friday night for dinner, we met our friends Allison and Jarod at City Kitchen. The company was amazing as always, and it was so much fun seeing them before they left for St. Lucia on their honeymoon. We had been to City Kitchen before and enjoyed it for brunch, and I think if we go back we'll do that again. The service was slow and the dinner food wasn't quite as good as the breakfast. 

Saturday ended up being a very lazy, rainy day; we slept in, ran a few errands, and cleaned. We also stopped by Woof Gang Bakery and next time I'll have to take Aida. They had the cutest treats, and we got a few small ones for her. She goes absolutely crazy over them.

I'd also really like to take her to get professionally groomed. But we might just have to settle for getting her nails clipped there (for now).

Saturday night, we tried J. Betski's, a German/Polish restaurant. I'm always looking for good European food, especially schnitzel. Eating schnitzel here wasn't the same as being in home in Vienna, but it was a pretty good option. We loved the German bread, and the chocolate-hazelnut torte was incredible. We would definitely go back with my family.
Sunday morning, we headed to a different Summit Church location and really loved it. I hope that this fall we can find a small group that is nearby and that we can attend fairly regularly, despite our crazy schedules.

And right before I went to Pure Barre to work, the sun finally came out. I'm already wishing I could skip work and lay by the pool today.

At least it's going to be a short week before getting ready for Emily's wedding. She was my roommate for two years in college, and I cannot wait to see her become a Mrs. on Saturday!

Happy Monday!
