A lazy weekend FINALLY!

Keith and I had a really good weekend. We didn't do much of anything and that was the nice part. I have so many appts. and weddings on the weekend so it is not often I get to stay in bed late and really have NO place I have to be! It was really nice and a long time coming. I made sure to not book any appts. this weekend just so I could do just that--anything I want. I had only planned one thing and that was to cook a fancy dinner for Keith on Saturday night. Friday night we did nothing but watch TV and hang around the house. Saturday we went to see Dad and I grocery shopped for that night. Then we came home and Keith stayed in the room while I put together the four course meal. I had printed menu cards, made centerpieces, and planned the menu to a T. Everything turned out really well, but dessert was just okay, I don't think I will make that again. Keith said it was my best yet and was very impressed by the effort. It was a very nice romantic dinner at home.

Sunday we just laid around and watched football (niners won yay!), and then I went to dinner with my friends Sofia and Nicole. It was a good weekend!
