Last weekend I had high hopes for an awesome weekend, but it ended up being super low key instead. This weekend is shaping up to be all kinds of awesome. So much so that I’ve dubbed it the Weekend of Awesome. No, I don’t have high expectations at all for this weekend, why do you ask? 🙂
So far I’m looking at a movie (or two!) dinner and brunch. Sounds excellent to me!
