I hope you had the time of your life...

“I can see clearly now the rain is gone!” hehe. No  seriously I can. Kinda like magic the clouds gave way the second I got out of work on Friday & I was off to a fabulous weekend! As I was driving to see my boyfriend I saw a rainbow. I think it’s a sign that if I have to drive under a rainbow to see someone then I’m in the right spot at the right time. I was so happy to see him because I hadn’t seen him all week. Absence definitely makes the heart grow fonder. I missed him, so this whole weekend we got re-acquainted. We decided to take a Couples Retreat Weekend another go & it was a Success!!! =)

Somehow CJ & I have become the “IT” couple that everyone wants to hang out with.  I have never had this so I have to say it’s pretty cool. We got called for a game night with another couple & frankly I thought it was awesome. We played video games & board games. It might sound dull but you get a few beers & a bottle of wine & BAM! Cute evening in on a cold night that doesn’t cost you much money at all & your socializing & building those friendships I desperately craved. 

Now I live in New York on the border of New Jersey and I brought up that there is a zoo called Van Saun Park near us & I hadn’t gotten a chance to go yet. Well I said the magic words. CJ & I and one of his couple friends went on a mini safari not even 15 minutes from my house! It’s not a terribly big zoo but the company, some quirky animals, & a lot of laughs made it a really enjoyable time. =) Here are the pictures from Saturday! 
Beautiful Peacock!

The lil donkeys were too CUTE!

Cute Successful couple photo! =)
 It was such a good weekend! It's honestly been a while since I've had such a good weekend. I feel like CJ & I's relationship is growing & we're not going to get sick of each other because we go out & do things with other couples. This time of year I thought would be a bit of a drag because summer was over but hell no. I look forward to what's next! Back to work & the gym I go! Let's hear for it Monday!

Did you get a moment to have some fun this weekend? What did you do?

I'm glad you're enjoying yourself, it sounds like you and CJ are in a good place right now. It's definitely a good sign when you cannot wait to see your boyfriend and feel relaxed when around him. And clearly everyone knows that you two are good together with all of those couples events invitations! Sometimes a few bottles of beer and a boardgame with good people is the best way to spend a night!

You guys are so cute! I keep meaning to arrange a game night with friends. Sounds like fun.

Sounds like your weekend was way better than any gold at the end of that rainbow :o) Or maybe the weekend was your Gold?

My weekend included travelling and books = mental and physical break, which was just what the doctor ordered. Need more prescriptions on that "drug"....

Glad you had such a fun weekend! I had a good one too. We had a couple over for beers and to watch college football. It was a lot of fun. I made a note to do it more often. You are right; it makes for a cheap evening to stay in instead of going out.
