I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was really busy but in the best possible way.
On Friday night, Ian and I went out to dinner to celebrate our four year anniversary. We enjoyed a 12+ course sushi dinner and a bottle of wine and everything was fabulous. We were getting up to leave when Ian asked me to wait a second… and then he proposed! I was so surprised! Even better, we had photographers. The restaurant was tiny (maybe 8 tables?) and the people sitting next to us managed to catch the end.
We decided to go to the Violet Hour after dinner for a celebratory drink. I had never been there before and it was pretty cool.
On Saturday, Ian and I spent some time calling our families (it was too late to call Friday night and the majority of them knew it was going to happen), I got a manicure, and then Ian went to work on his car and I went to book club. This month we read Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by The Bloggess and it was absolutely hilarious. I highly recommend everyone read it! As always, the food was delicious and the company was great!
Ian and I had planned to go out on Saturday night to celebrate some more but we were both exhausted and not feeling up to it. We curled up on the couch and watched Netflix instead :).
The weather was fabulous all weekend and made for some extra beautiful runs. I spent some of my run on Sunday scoping out potential places to have engagement photos taken.
Wouldn’t that be a beautiful backdrop?
Unfortunately, I had to devote a lot of time on Sunday to chemistry homework but I did manage to take a break so Ian and I could go to the Maxwell St Market for a late lunch. The market is one of the first places Ian took me before we started officially dating and it was fun to think back on all of the times we’ve been there. Unfortunately, our favorite food stand was MIA, but we did find that Rubi’s (a close second) had a shorter line than usual, and grabbed tacos from them.
A late lunch meant I wasn’t super hungry for dinner but I did manage to muster up enough appetite to eat this vegan, gluten free pumpkin maple cupcake for dinner (with a side of more chemistry homework). Totally worth it.
I ended my night with a few online chem lectures (our class was canceled last week) and then watching more Netflix with Ian.
How was your weekend? Tips/advice for the recently engaged?
