Oh man, I just had the best weekend. I would love to go back and do it all again!! More on that in a moment, but first, I'm back with Inspiration Monday and that is taking the sting off of Monday just a hair! Today's model is Eva Mendes in a nice autumn-ish type ensemble. And a giant dog. Perhaps he is her guard dog?
So first off, it's not sunny here like it is in her picture. And secondly, this is actually my second attempt at the outfit, my first choice didn't quite work out. And, it's a little chilly outside today, but I went with short sleeves anyway! I am actually quite pleased with how this turned out, even if it wasn't my original plan! I also tried to get one of the cats to pose with me to be my "guard dog" but they were sleeping. Lazy cats.
So, back to my weekend, I am sorry to brag, but it was pretty rock star fabulous. Friday's boat ride was awesome. The weather was perfect, we had a lovely sunset as we cruised the lake. The beer was very tasty. The brewery's taproom was open until 11 too, so we headed over there after the boat ride so we could have one more pint and also get a glass to bring home for our collection. They had this giant Jenga game and it was really fun. I might have to gently suggest to my wood working father that it would make a nice Christmas gift for Mr. Monkey and me!
Saturday was jammed pack but was equally awesome. Spent some time in the morning with our music group working on a CD we're making. Headed home for lunch and then went to sing at a wedding. And then from there I went to the MN Blogger meet up at Megan Bird's. It was a blast, we had a great time sitting in her backyard, drinking beer and
Sunday we slept in and then had brunch outside since the weather was still amazingly beautiful. Then the Pants Monkey worked on making dinner for his family - we wanted to thank his parents for taking care of our cats while we were out of town and what better way to do that then with food?
So it was a great three day weekend. And it'll be my last one for quite awhile I think. It'll be weird working five days again! I know, wahh, wahh.
