It really was a great weekend....

Are you like me and live for the weekend? Is it just me or does your week seem to be a countdown until Friday at 5pm?

This weekend did not disappoint:
Friday night was the first time in a long time that both girls were home. Wayne loaded us up and took his three favorite girls to their favorite restaurant: Carrabas! We had such a great time. In a house full of women, there aren't too many days where our hormones are all in synch and we are in a fantastic mood at the same time. Friday night was one of those times and we laughed, enjoyed good food and let ourselves be teased by the man of the house. He took me to Dillards where I exchanged a ridiculous pair of shoes I bought last week. You would think that by this time I would be over the whole debate with myself about heels. Vanity won the battle, but comfort won the war. Took em back got a pair of sandals instead.

Saturday Wayne woke me up early and after coffee (for me) we headed out to Greensboro while the girls still snoozed. We spent a couple hours at the thrift shops, and habitat for humanity store. Even stopped at a few yard sales. He bought me an outside light, hanging basket, and that was really about all. We had lots of fun, and talked about what we are going to do in the back yard, now that the pool has bit the dust. Is it just a ridiculous fantasy of mine that I'll ever have a garden? Is that possible in the middle of the deer plantation I live on? Which reminds me, a doe and her baby are living in the front yard.(woods) Saw them tonight when we left for church.

I spent the rest of the day cleaning house then ran a long 4 mile run Wayne grilled out for us, and I finished the night by making him a huge lemon pound cake.

Today, Sunday was great. I love my Sunday School class! We had such a great time this morning! Seriously, I wonder why they come back every week! After church, we came home and I took a 2 hour nap. Ahhh, now I won't sleep tonight, but I squeezed every drop of goodness out of this weekend.
Tomorrow is Monday and I'm gonna try a new attitude. I can't wait to see what adventures await me tomorrow, the beginning of my new work week. Yeah I'm not feeling it but I'm gonna try!

I too love the weekends...where you can relax, enjoy time with hubby, do nothing, and go yard-sale-ing. We are so enjoying weekends in our new apartment...I feel like myself again. It's nice to hang out at home all day too! You are blessed with a fabulous hubby and 2 beautiful girls! One day they will call you and talk to you for 2 hours like I did with my mom this morning!
