a four pm hangover (our weekend & monday in pictures)

It's been 11 days since I've stepped foot into my office building and at this point, I'm really not certain I know what day of the week it is. And I don't hate it. Not one single bit.
That being said, I think we have had some sort of weekend in the past couple of days & now I'm here to show you what it looked like. Plus my Monday too... because it was pretty damn fun!
 
Saturday
Billy had the day off, so we spent the day putting Christmas away (yes, already. I was ready for my house to be put back together again) and then had ourselves a date night!
I got ready with wine and my very favorite new wine glass (it's like my best friend knows me or something?!) and when I came out of my room I stumbled upon the sweetest little picnic happening. It melted my heart.
First up for the night was to go purchase Billy's new toy.
He has been in heaven ever since.
We hit up Shake Shack after that for burgers and shakes and called it an early night.
We had a few more things planned, but they all fell through. Which we didn't mind since we were so tired from cleaning all day.
Sunday
After a morning of lounging around in our PJs and a nice long nap, we headed to Firkin & Keglers for some bowling with my family. Abigail had a total blast!
 
 
Monday
My sister, her husband Joe, Billy and myself all had the day off yesterday and we all planned to put the kids in daycare, so we decided to take advantage of having nothing to do on a weekday and take our very first ride on the SunRail!
If you aren't from this area then you may not realize how exciting this is!
We hopped on the 10:15am train to Winter Park and decided to spend the day out there.
We started on Park Ave. and realized that there was an event happening nearby because it was packed! As we got closer, we started seeing a lot of Orange and Maroon colors... so we asked around and found out that the 8th Annual Russell Athletic Bowl Parade of Bands featuring the University of Oklahoma and Clemson University Marching Bands was about to start! So we grabbed a sidewalk table at a restaurant right in the middle of the action and had front row seats for the event!
So random but so much fun!
We walked up and down Park Ave. for a while, stopping into Peterbrooke for some chocolate covered potato chips & eventually ending up at The Wine Room for a couple drinks! If you are in the area and have never been to The Wine Room, I highly recommend it. The concept is fantastic! The restaurant is covered wall to wall in 'wine machines' that you can select a taste, half glass or full glass of wine from using a reloadable card you purchase when you walk in. Brilliant!
Following more wine that should have been consumed before lunch, we made our way to 'Winter in the Park', the indoor/outdoor ice skating rink that is set up for the holiday season!
You know you live in Florida when you are ice skating outside (it was tented) in shorts and a t-shirt in 84 degree weather. Either way, we did a couple of laps before we were exhausted and starving and made our way to The Coop for lunch!
I'm pretty sure that by 4pm I was rocking a pretty severe hangover. Day drinking and me just don't mix very well. But it's always fun times!
We did a little more shopping (I scored an Elf of the Shelf for $15 for next year!) and caught the 4:40pm train back to the area. We had an absolute blast all day!
And now it's Tuesday and I'm pretty sure I have to go back to work tomorrow for a few hours... but then it's time to ring in 2015! I can. not. believe it!
