I can’t believe it’s already well after lunch time. So sorry for the delay in posting this morning, friends!
You guys. I have been so incredibly tired lately. I can attribute going to bed at an unreasonably late hour directly to my husband, but really, I should be better at this.
Ahhh. One more week of the NBA season shenanigans to push through and then it’s summer time (…also known as normal sleep and schedule time!)
Speaking of shenanigans, this weekend was full of it. With hopes of getting in a long afternoon run and some actual content out to you later today, I am just going to dive right in and share our weekend with you in a flash. Ready?
First of all, thank you again for participating in last week’s Friday Favorites! Throughout the day, I kept peeking in see to what you guys were loving and it really made me smile.
Okay, so back to Friday. It started out eventful with an appearance with some of my teammates, our crazy horse mascot, HOOPER, and our hip hop dance team D-Town at a local Detroit elementary school for NBA Green Week.
Since it was raining and nasty outside, we took our projects inside and helped a special first grade class plant vegetables and herbs for their classroom. It was really fun!
We made our way back home, and in a couple of hours, Scott and I were out the door to celebrate a friend’s birthday.
The party started at Rochester Mills, which is one of our favorite spots in Downtown Rochester. The food is great, and they always have a wide variety in menu selections and specialty homemade brews.
We ordered the Southwest grilled chicken salad and veggie pizza on whole wheat crust to split.
Our service wasn’t fantastic this time, which was kind of a bummer. But, we still had a great time listening to live music and enjoyed our night!
Scott left the house by lunchtime Saturday, which left me home to take care of some things on the computer and to clean up the house a little. Before I knew it, the day completely passed by and it was time to head out to a Pistons home game!
Being our second to last home game, I tried to snap more photos than normal and managed to sneak in a few with these blonde beauties below.
It was Cristi’s (left) and Hailee’s (right) last game with us, which made the reality of the season ending set in even more. We played the Boston Celtics, the stands were full, and we came out with a win! The game was a fun one, but I know we were all a little sad when it was all over.
To celebrate one of our last nights all together, a group of us went out to celebrate in Downtown Rochester. (Yes, again…)
As you can imagine, the night turned into a late one, but it was well worth the laughs and talks I shared with the girls.
We are officially done with having Sunday morning practices. This means we now have an excuse to attend the later services at church and enjoy a nice brunch with friends afterwards. Woo hoo!
A group of us decided to make a trip over to Royal Oak and enjoyed an afternoon at Lily’s Seafood.
While I was tempted by the eggs benedicts and waffles, I was boring and stuck to soup and salad after a weekend of eating “whatever”.
Mimosas, half a Fushion salad, and a cup of seafood gumbo.
I also indulged in sharing a round of group appetizers including seasoned sweet potato fries (SO good!), brie, and crusty french toast. To say everything was wonderful would be a serious understatement.
Somehow, the day completely passed us by, and we didn’t even make it back outside until around 5 p.m. Even though it was so late, we still appreciated the sunshine and had to stop to show you just how excited this makes these two Southerners.
It was marvelous!
(And, I am also liking the marvelousness up with Katie today.)
All right. Time to boogie. See you all again in just a bit!
I so am feeling you on the lack of sleep! It’s been bad for me lately. I seriously have no idea how to even improve it hah.
Your weekend looks like it was a ton of fun! And yay for Sunday morning practices being over, so you can enjoy more brunch;) Brunch is just amazing. I mean, mimosas are always a good idea.
So glad to finallyyyy be catching up on your blog again!
Ha, sounds like me! 😉 YES. Brunch is absolutely amazing. Welcome back, friend! I’m so glad you stopped by!
The sun for you up there is definitively something marvelous!!!! I also think it’s pretty cool that you got the chance to go to a school and plant with kids. They are so honest and enjoy the simple things!!
Yes they are. I really did have a great time. Hope you had a good weekend as well!
