The Perfect Weekend

For the #lovetober challenge I am participating in, on instagram today's pic is "The Perfect Weekend." What to me is the perfect weekend? 

Friday: After cleaning my house and uploading my video I watched the rest of season 5 of Vampire Diaries. This season was a good one! I finished it within a week and I'm horrified that Damon "died" but really glad that season 6 is in on Hulu. 

Saturday: Josh and I slept in and then went and got brunch! We went to Cafe Niche which is officially my favorite! My sister and I sort of have this habit now of brunch on the weekends mixed with coffee and good conversation so now on the weekends I crave it! Cafe Niche is THE shit! Killer food, great atmosphere, and super nice customer service. 

I ordered a heavenly plate that comes with eggs, avocado, spinach, and the most delicious bread! I got a side of hash browns and another blissful piece of bread with jam on the side that tastes homey like your grandma made it cause she loves you. Needless to say in drooling...

After breakfast we went and got coffee. My sister Anj introduced me to a wonderful place not only with a kick ass name but ridiculously good coffee! Jack Mormon Coffee! It's a bit of a drive from us BUT when your in the area you have to go!

Josh got a cappuccino and I got an iced latte. Mmmmmm....again drooling! 

We drove around the beautiful city of Salt Lake and ended up at gravity hill. We took pics, and admired the scenery! Fall is seriously my favorite.

After cruising around the city for a bit we headed home. Played with the dogs in the backyard for a while. Then we opened up all the windows, drank coffee, watched vine, and just hung out not doing anything in particular. 

Sometimes it's these little simple moments that are the best.

Around 7:30 we packed up our computers and headed over to a LAN party a group of our friends were having. LAN parties are way fun! It might seem silly for a bunch of people to get together to play games but when your around kick ass people, pizza, energy drinks, and candy it's way fun! I can ask questions to other gamers that's normally hard to ask over chat, you get to watch other people play, check out their set up, and chat it up. It was awesome!

We left around 11:45 to be home to the pups, but the gaming didn't stop there! We played until 7 am the next day! We leveled up to 55 and then started an alt death knight! Around 4 am we stopped to take a break and grab some McDonalds, which is horrible for your body but sometimes it's ok!

Then! To top it all off it rained! Rain is my favorite and every time it does rain I just feel better :)

And today...

Self love Sunday: My favorite! 

This weekend has been perfect! Although we have done a bunch of rad stuff it makes me grateful for the busy weekends, the slow weekends, AND the fun weekends. It's all about the balance, I definitely couldn't do all that every weekend but every so often it's pretty great! 

Much love!
