So, what's so special about the rose garden at Ault Park? Well, that's where Antoine and I are getting married...in just a little over a year!
Right here, to be exact.
Tons of flowers were in bloom and it smelled amazing in the rose garden.
The rest of Friday night was pretty relaxed. We went window shopping and ran some errands. I know it sounds lame, but Friday night is the best time to go grocery shopping since no one is there.
Saturday started off very slow. Just a lot of laying around, not doing much. But then we met up with my sis and brother-in-law downtown to take a cheese making class. More specifics on that later. All I'll say for right now is it was pretty fun and it was BYOB, so even if I hadn't learned how to make cheese I walked out of the class in a fantastically drunk mood! After the class, A and I made a run to Party Source for supplies to make minty drinks (mint juleps and mojitos), because obviously I needed more alcohol in me, at 5 o'clock on a Saturday night, when I hadn't really eaten much that day.
Then, while running to the Post Office, I proceeded to have a giggle fit and take a horrific amount of picture of me giggling...
When we got home Antoine made turkey burgers and sweet potato fries and I whipped us up some drinks. A raspberry mojito for me (above) and a mint julep with Maker's Mark (below) for Antoine.
Please note: this is the same raspberry mojito, I only had one! I do have some self-control.
While eating dinner, the Cheese-man put on his usual beggar-face. I caved and shared some watermelon with him.
On Sunday pretty much the only thing I did, besides watch season one and two of Portlandia for the second time, was attempt to do galaxy nails based on this tutorial I had found. Not the best ever, but fairly decent for a first attempt. I'll definitely give it another try sometime in the future, maybe try out so different colors.
