I love reading everyone's weekend recaps on Monday mornings. Maybe it's because I'm nosey. Maybe it's because I live vicariously through all the 'real' bloggers out there LIVIN' THE LIFE. But when it comes to my own weekend recaps I struggle. Sometimes it's because I'm not the world's best writer and finding the right words to get what I want out is tough for me (so WHY am I trying my hand at this whole blogging thing?!) Other times, it's because our weekends are often full of adult things - like errands, cleaning, house projects, etc. And I wonder to myself 'Do people REALLY want to hear about all that stuff?' Other times, we actually have a pretty great, fun, awesome weekend...but I don't have any pictures to prove it #bloggerwanna-beproblems.
So even though this whole blogging thing is STILL a struggle for me and often times I write like a 10 year old...I'm still here - trying to do this. So with that being said...since it is Monday morning, I guess I'll try my hand once again to do a weekend recap. Here goes nothin'...
Friday after a work out and a quick dinner, the hubs and I headed to Home Depot to pick out a paint color (one of our spare rooms is getting painted tomorrow!) Who knew picking out the right shade of gray would take WELL over an hour? I seriously stood there in the paint section just staring at some options and not knowing what to do. Finally, we chose a color (or so I thought) and went to the counter to purchase it. The lady suggested we get samples of the 2 colors we were comtemplating so we could see them in the room. We decided that was a good idea so we got our samples and headed home.
Saturday I got up super early to get my 6 mile run in before it got too hot. Thank goodness I did because the last mile sucked to be honest. I love the sun and warmth but NOT when I'm running. So I was VERY happy to be home and in the cool house shortly after 8am. And it felt dang good to have my work out done that early and have the rest of the day to get things done! We had a list a mile long to accomplish that day so the time was much needed!! The rest of Saturday was spent cleaning, doing laundry, clearing out the spare bedroom, deciding on a paint color, purchasing the paint (along with some paint for the front door...goodbye brick red...hello blue-ish/gray-ish door!) and trying to organize our master bedroom a bit better. It was a long exhausting day...so, of course, we also squeezed in a nap :)
Then we got showered up and headed to a baseball game with one of Matt's friends from grad school and his girlfriend. The baseball game took forever (thanks to overtime) but the fireworks afterwards made it totally worth it! I LOVE fireworks and the fact that we'll be able to see them twice in a week makes me a very happy gal!
Even though we didn't get to bed until midnight - I was wide awake before 6:30 but was able to lounge in bed for a while before we got up for our June date (going out for breakfast!) We don't eat out often, especially not breakfast, so this was such a nice treat and we really enjoyed the time together <3
After that, we headed home to get ready for my nephew's Baptism. I'm his Godmother so it was a very special day. Here's the little stud dressed in his Baptismal clothes - the same outfit his daddy wore for his Baptism 30 years ago!! So precious <3
And that was basically my weekend in a nutshell. Lookin' forward to only working 4 days this week - hello 3 day weekend!!
