Beau and I had an amazing weekend. It was honestly the perfect balance between alone time, quality time with friends, relaxation, and productivity.
Love is learning a new skill to please your partner.
Friday night, Beau and I went dancing!!!! My neighborhood has a dance studio, and they had a LivingSocial deal recently for discounted dance lessons. I don't formally dance anymore, but my past includes ten years of jazz and tap lessons, a few musical theatre productions, and Tuesday nights swing dancing at a local bar during undergrad. Beau has slightly... less training. So it was very nice spending Friday night learning the basics of how to waltz, foxtrot, and rumba.
Love is cooking breakfast.
Saturday morning, I made Beau and me biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Then we had some very excellent alone time, wink wink, nudge nudge, followed by a relaxing hot bath. Our afternoon was spent cleaning my apartment and preparing for guests!
Love is having fun with friends without alcohol.
My friends James and Amanda came over for pizza and board games. Beau dominated the night, winning first Star Trek Catan and then Scrabble.
Love is understanding when your partner makes mistakes.
Super Bowl Sunday was pretty sweet too! Beau and I went to one of my favorite restaurants for brunch. I had a buy one, get one coupon, but apparently I didn't read the fine print. I felt SO guilty when I found out it didn't apply to breakfast. I don't usually ask Beau to take me out for nice meals, and I was so excited about scoring a deal. He was very sweet and understanding when we found out my coupon was no good. Our server was very nice and gave us two free muffins as an apology, even though it was my fault for not reading the fine print.
Love is spending all your free time with your bestie.
The Super Bowl itself we celebrated with Lauren, Hardy, and James. We ate SO much yummy food. The game was pretty boring, so Lauren and I spent most of the night gossiping.
All in all, I had an amazing weekend!
What did y'all do this weekend?
