Weekend Recap


FRIDAY ~ 
I slept in and it was lovely. When I woke up I had a text from my friend back home in Newfoundland and she said she was in town and would love to meet for lunch.  It has been 7 years since I saw her, we chatted, we laughed, we shopped and we picked up right where we left off and now talking about taking a trip together. 



It did my heart so good to see her, hang out with her and have a piece of home here. Sadly our visited came to an end and she had to go back home. 

I bought some new sandals for summer, pretty teal pair and a black pair. it was a fun after noon

Friday Evening I was hosting a baby shower for a lady at church, it was a fun time, she is having a girl after 4 boys so there was lots of pink. Our theme was "New Little Princess" we were decorating in hearts and crowns. 

The cupcakes had crowns sticking up from them

For food we did a dips and dessert's menu. 

The center pieces were simple.. it was a vase with tissue paper and then we had crowns and hearts on little decorative sticks. It really did look pretty. 

She got some adorable dresses and pretty girl things. 


SATURDAY ~
After the exciting day of Friday I felt like today was super chill which was needed. 
Brooke went to the church to make cookies with some youth girls for a fundraiser, they are selling them on Sunday. 
Then we went to town and I went to Staples and Michael's looking for a planner for Brooke.. she is FINALLY a planner girl, I am excited to do that together. 
Came home and made a spinach and ricotta ravioli in a rose hip sauce, oh my it was heavenly. 
Took some time and laid on the patio with a book, the weather was so beautiful today. I wanted to stay outside all day. 

SUNDAY~
We were not on set up duty today so we enjoyed the extra hour sleep. It was nice. 
We had Sunday morning service and then a young guy came over for lunch, we grilled and it was a nice day. 

Other than that it was a great weekend.

  1. Sleeping in is the very best feeling in the world, especially when you never get to do it! My parents watched the kids overnight on Friday and I woke up at 10:30 on Saturday!! I obviously needed that extra sleep!!

  4. I was able to meet up with my high school buddies two months ago. We haven't been together - all 5 of us in 35 years! It was such a great evening of good food and a lot of catching up with each other's lives. I am happy that you were able to meet up with your friend. Isn't it such a lovely feeling?

  6. Sleeping in on the weekends is my favorite thing to do. I'm trying to stockpile that sleep before visiting my niece and nephew for Memorial Day Weekend. They don't know that Aunt Blythe likes to sleep in, but how could I when I love spending time with them.

  13. Whenever I’m with an old friend, we can’t help ourselves to talk about our old days, especially during our high school days. It’s always cool to be with these people once in a while.
