Hello, hello! Hope your week is off to a good start. I wanted to share a recap of my weekend because it ended up being a fun and busy one.
On Friday night Derek and I went to The Black Keys concert. I bought the tickets as a birthday gift for Derek back in August, so we were pumped to finally go to the concert.
I took a video of them playing the song below, but I had some trouble uploading it. Instead, I’ll share the music video.
The Black Keys were great live! I’d definitely recommend seeing them in concert if you’re a fan.
On Saturday morning I met up with my best friend Jenna for a yoga class at Clouds Brewing. The “price” for admission was a toy for Toys for Tots. Over a hundred people attended, which resulted in an awesome donation for Toys for Tots. Pretty neat idea for a toy drive, right?
The class turned out to be really challenging. Definitely not for beginners. Fortunately, many of the people who attended were just like Jenna and me: yoga amateurs. We had a great time and cracked up at our attempts to get into certain positions.
It was fun and almost surreal to practice yoga in a bar. This was the view to my right during the class.
After such a tough class, it was totally necessary to reward ourselves with beer and lunch.
We started our meal with a beer cheese appetizer. It came with sliced bratwurst, sauerkraut, and pretzel bread. It was all good, but the pretzel bread was the bomb.
For my meal I got a flatbread with grilled chicken, spinach, feta, and red onion. It was delicious. Gotta love feta.
After the yoga class and lunch, we went to see the newest Hunger Games movie. I headed home in the afternoon and spent the evening with the hubby.
On Sunday Derek and I went to church and then headed over to our friends’ house to make gingerbread houses. We, of course, had to dress for the occasion.
Our friends were prepared. So. Much. Candy. (And wine.)
Our friends made the gingerbread from scratch and had a fire going. Does it get more Christmas-y than that?
I even got some quality dog time in. Isn’t Pippa cute?
Candid action shot.
Fun time had by all!
What a great weekend! Have you done any fun holiday activities yet?
