Weekend Happenings

We had a really good weekend. On Friday, we just came home & relaxed...my favorite thing to do on a Friday evening. Haha! (I know...it's pitiful.) I finished this book & it was really good. Kinda depressing at first, but I noticed that it got less that way as the book went on. And somehow, even dealing with grief, it's told with a sense of humor. Very well-written. Great book!

On Saturday, I got up & went to bootcamp, surprising myself since we stayed up too late Friday night & I REALLY wanted to sleep in! I was there at 8:00 am & had a great workout! Afterwards, I ran to Wal-Mart to get the stuff for dinner. When I got home, it was time to CLEAN! I cleaned the house so good & hubby helped! Nothing like company coming to make me clean like that! I dusted every room, vaccuumed the living room & our bedroom, made our bed, cleaned the kitchen & cleaned both bathrooms. Brad picked up & put away all his stuff and swept & mopped the kitchen. SO THANKFUL for a CLEAN HOUSE! :)

We also hung the new print I got from etsy on my bathroom wall. I LOVE IT. It's so cute & goes perfectly in there! This is so "me". Soaking in the tub is how i de-stress or how i relax. So cute!

You can't tell it here, but the bathroom wall is a really light blue & it compliments the darker blue in the pic! :) 

Our friends Ashley & Dan came over for dinner Saturday. Finally! Ashley & I have been trying to plan a double-date since November! That's ridiculous, I know! She is my friend that teaches the Zumba class I'm taking. She brought a delicious salad with homemade vinaigrette dressing. YUM! She also brought brownies. Yikes! :) I made this Chicken Pot Pie & it was delicious! I was so excited to have found whole wheat biscuits to put on top, that I didn't even realize until my husband pointed out that they were actually dinner rolls. HA! Oh-well. It's basically the same thing! Anyway, we had a really great time hanging out with them!

Sunday was church & I took photos of my friend Melissa's new baby girl's dedication. I have never been asked to do something like this & I had to remind Melissa that i am NOT a pro, but she really just wanted someone with a good camera to take some pics. I really had SO MUCH FUN doing it! I got some good shots too. Here is one of the flops... because it took me a few shots to - DUH! - move them to the side so a big screen wasn't in the background! HA! But aren't they such a cute family?!

Miss Brenlyn got a little annoyed after awhile. ;) 

So sweet! It was fun! It was raining when we left church... actually, during the sermon, it started POURING & it sounded SO LOUD! HAHA! Brad ran to get the car so i didn't get wet (sweetness) & i snapped some cloud pics! The sky looked pretty, even with it raining!

We didn't do much in the afternoon, but that evening we watched the movie CONVICTION, with Hilary Swank. I saw the previews of this forever ago & really wanted to see it, but it was not in the theatres long at all. It was a good movie though. It's about a girl whose brother is convicted of murder. She knows he is innocent & isn't satisfied with the court-appointed attorneys... so she puts herself through college & law school to be his lawyer & prove his innocence! She is a high school dropout & a single mom. I thought it was a good movie. Kind of depressing... they did not have a good life growing up! Minnie Driver & Peter Gallagher were also in it. And Juliette Lewis, too... & let me just say... I have never thought of her as a favorite actress, but she has a scene in this movie where I was like.... "DANG. She is a REALLY good actress!" We enjoyed it.

Overall, it was a really good weekend! I am very much looking forward to this next one, though! Going to visit some relatives I haven't seen in a long time! YAY! :)


  1. That is a great weekend! I love that print. So neat. I take a bath almost every night just to unwind! That headband on that sweet baby is too much for my heart! Oh so cute.

  2. That sounds like a perfect weekend! I love weekends with no plans and being able to have guests over for dinner. I love cooking and hosting dinner for guests. I love your Etsy picture! And Brad getting the car in the rain was super sweet! What a great weekend! :)

  3. I love that pic of the baby fussing! And that head piece is beyond adorable!!

  4. Nothing like a good ole fashion laid back weekend! Love the picture in the bathroom...it's relaxing just to look at!
