Weekend Funover

I enjoyed this weekend with my husband and X so much I now have a "Funover"!

Definition of a Funover: Fun & happiness carried over to the next day

Friday night was very relaxing and low-key. Made a simple dinner and spent time with X before he went to bed. During dinner X didn't like that he shouldn't drop everything on the floor, so he decided to give us "The Lip"! I had to take a pic of it because it was just too cute!

"The Lip"

After X was asleep my husband decided it would be fun to try a few new "drinks" to kick off the weekend. The first one was called a "Cold Irish" (http://www.mr-booze.com/2012/06/25/cold-irish/). WOW! It was REALLY strong for my taste! I think it is supposed to be like a regular Irish Coffee, just served cold, but I didn't taste any coffee at all! The recipe is pretty vague though, so maybe next time I will adjust it more to my liking :)

We added some gold & green sugar to the top to be festive!

The next drink we tried was a "Pimms Cup"
(http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink5858.html). It was very refreshing! Kinda of surprised we have never tried this one before. I think it is a great spring/summer cocktail.


We didn't add the garnish to our glasses. 


Saturday we hopped in the car and headed over to the Wooster area for some lunch and then made our way to the Smucker's Store in Orrville, Ohio.

My husband (who really wanted this pic) & X (sleeping) with the Pillsbury Dough Boy!

It was interesting to learn a little bit about the Smucker's company and see all the brands, flavors, etc. they had to offer. We were able to sample a few items as well: blueberry preserves, coconut curd, and banana curd. The blueberry preserves were so tasty that we ended up picking up a jar to bring home with us :) We picked up a couple of other souvenirs as well...

Socks for X & shirt for my husband :)
The final stop on our little road trip was to Lehman's Hardware (http://www.lehmanshardware.com/) in Dalton, Ohio. It was much more than a hardware store! They have a toy section, lamps, dishes, cookie cutters, etc. Honestly, I feel the hardware section was small compared to all the other items they offer at Lehman's.

All 3 of us were so exhausted from our trip that we took a 2 hour nap when we arrived home! Perfect since I was planning on staying up late to watch Justin Timberlake host "Saturday Night Live"! FYI: He did not disappoint!


Sunday was another road trip, but this time my in-laws joined us and we headed down to Columbus for the day. Unfortunately, what was supposed to be a 45 minute drive turned into a little over 2 hour drive due to traffic and construction! Thankfully it was a very nice day outside!

When we finally made it to Columbus we went straight to the Cabela's store (http://www.cabelas.com/stores/store_info.jsp?pageName=042) that had just opened (some how we managed to get front row parking!).




My husband and I have been to a couple other Cabela's stores so we knew what to expect for the most part. Every store is a little different inside, so it was nice to see how they "decorated" this one. When I say decorated I mean what taxidermy they used :) If you don't know already, Cabela's is a big hunting, fishing, camping store. While we aren't exactly into those things, the stores are still pretty cool to walk around. Every now and then you find an item you might want :)

The shirt I picked up for myself :)

Our final stop on Sunday was to Matt the Miller's Tavern (http://mtmtavern.com/) in Dublin, Ohio. I absolutely LOVE the Dublin area! The food was very good (we had steaks) and the appetizer of Bavarian Pretzel Bites was delicious as well! One of the highlights (for me anyways) was the booster seat with buckle that X got to sit in. Meaning...we were able to sit at a big booth and he was right in between my husband and I! It was great! Wow, I am such a mom! Lol!


With all of the great places we visited, food & drinks we had, and don't forget getting to watch JT host SNL (for the 5th time!)....how could I not have a Funover today?!

So what did you do this weekend? Any fun road trips you are planning?

Until next time...
