Weekending | Relaxing Long Weekend

I could definitely get used to four day weekends! Thanks to mid-winter break I had Friday and yesterday off. I was able to sleep in, deep clean the apartment, get caught up on laundry, and still had time for some fun.
Friday | I spent the day visiting my grandparents since Thomas still had to work. Grandma and I went to the mall, made some plans for our upcoming NYC trip, and then spent time catching up with grandpa. I ended up getting stuck in rush hour so it was a long drive back to Ann Arbor. The rest of the evening was pretty low key; we made dinner and then watched the Kings of Leon iHeartTheater LA show. Only two more weeks until we finally see them live again!
Saturday | We had a very lazy morning and then spent the afternoon cleaning the apartment with the door wall open! The weather has finally started to warm up here in Michigan. Our friends from Grand Rapids were on this side of the state and paid us a visit. We had plans to join a 90's Bar Crawl that was taking place in downtown Ann Arbor, but by the time we got there we were starving and needed to eat ASAP. We ended up at Curtain Call, which was alright, and then did some bar hoping.  When we got home at 1:30am we decided we wanted to order Insomnia Cookies and they did not disappoint!
Sunday | We had another very slow moving morning. We picked up Panera for lunch and then headed out to look at some properties. We're officially on the house/land hunt and it was quite interesting. Thankfully it was a beautiful day and I brought my trusty Hunter boots! We picked up Culver's on the way home and then went grocery shopping. While at Meijer we picked up Arrival from Redbox and it was an excellent movie. I'd highly recommend it!
Monday | We had another slow moving morning, but then Thomas made a delicious breakfast and we got down to business. We did some virtual house hunting, laundry, and prepped for the upcoming week. The weather was still nice so we took Duke on an extra long walk in honor of #nationalpetday and then we headed downtown to stroll around before our reservations at Ruth's Chris. It was the perfect way to spend a day off together.

Now it's back to the grind. I'm hoping that March is a steadier month in terms of work and my therapy schedule. I feel like it hasn't been "normal" since October! Linking up with B loved Boston here.
