Labor Day Weekend Recap +(deals)

Welcome back from a long weekend! Our weekend turned out to be just as we planned; no plans at all!
Friday afternoon we were both off earlier so we took advantage of the extra time and tried to avoid the heat by grabbing a few cold ones at Revolution Brewing followed by bbq dinner at Sheffields. A large storm rolled through the area but luckily we were safe and sound in the bar.
Instead of our usual long runs on Saturday morning, we opted for breakfast at a local fav, Bongo Room. Yes, those are both my pancakes. I couldn't decide between White Chocolate Carmel Pretzel or Banana Health, so I ordered one of each. I still couldn't finish them! More rain rolled in after breakfast and we spent the day doing errands before heading downtown to babysit for E&M. Luckily it cleared up and we were able to spend a few hours in the pool.
Sunday morning Ben woke up bright and early for a brew session (we're talking 6:30am). Oscar and I slept in a bit and did more errands before he wrapped up the brewing and we were able to hit the beach for what will probably be our last hurrah this summer. Saturday night we headed over to my SILs for some smoked prime rib dinner and to hang for the night. 
I made two desserts to bring along, both of which will be posted in coming weeks.  The pink lemonade cupcakes were not quite what I'd hoped for, but none-the-less, they will get eaten:)

Monday morning we woke up to Oscar snuggling between our pillows and decided to watch a movie, Shawshank Redemption. After the movie decided that it was a perfect day for a run. After running we decided to spend more time outside so we biked down to Roots Pizza for a delayed Sunday Night, Pizza Night, before biking home and watching yet another movie, Gangster Squad.

While the weekend wasn't all that exciting, it was nice to finally just do as we pleased and not be rushed around town.  I hope you had a great weekend! Linking up with Sami to share my weekend shenanigans.
