Weekend Recap

Friday: 
I worked and was so tired by 5 pm, but we went to dinner with a friend,she was struggling today, was very homesick so we hung out with her and had a good time, did some shopping as well 

watched some Netflix and just chilled, relaxing friday night. 

Saturday: 
We went to a birthday party for a guy that is like a grandpa to Brooke- he turned 80 today. It was a great time with some delicious food and to see family that we have not saw in a while.



Hubby and I went on a grocery date.. I need to stop buying groceries so much, i can barely fit anything in my fridge, and I feel guilty that we have so  much food and there are so people hungry int his world.. I go every week mainly to get fresh fruit and veggies, but I always end up spending like $90-120 each week. How often do you grocery shop?  on top of that we still go out to eat once or twice, I know right, it is nuts. 

We went our of town around 7:30 pm and went to a youth bonfire, i know we are not youth but we needed to drive some youth, it was super nice evening with some pretty awesome youth. 
We played guitar, had smores, hot dogs, soda, chips etc.. it was so nice. 



Once we got home I remembered I needed to make a dish for the Leadership pot luck tomorrow,so I made Leslie’s famous pasta salad, and I thought about her while I was making it, I miss that girl so much. Last night grief sucker punched me so hard when I was thinking about her.  

Today also marked 20 years since our first date, yes I was only 13, him 14, but I knew that first day I met him a month or so previous to our first date, I was going to marry him and right I was. It gets sweeter and sweeter every day.

Sunday:
We had morning service, then a leadership pot luck, came home to nap and then back to church for 5 pm for music practice.
After service we went to mcd's with Rachel, I am so glad she is back for the new school year.

Have a great week friends

  7. Yep, our weekend plans usually consist of at least one evening with Netflix after our son goes to bed (although I always have trouble staying awake). Looks like you had a lovely weekend!

  8. I so appreciate the older people in my daughter's life. Her grandparents are wonderful but I love that there are non-family members who invest in our kids' life as well. Sounds like a full, good weekend!
