Short week ahead!

Somehow long weekends never seem quite long enough :) However, you can't beat the short work-week that follows! I'm already thinking of the upcoming weekend which is sure to be a fun one. Let's hope these 4 days at the office are smooth sailing.

This long weekend was muchhhh needed. The perfect mixture of fun plans but also, relaxation.

Friday a new baby cousin joined our family!!! Westley is SO adorable and SO loved already. I can't wait to meet him in person this weekend! Congratulations Mike & Lindsey!!! He is perfect!
Westley Owen; Born August 31 :)
Saturday I participated in J's family fantasy football draft. Let me tell you, I'm planning on winning it all ;)
Look at all the concentration ;) And.... don't be jealous that we match.
Sunday, J and I had a fun afternoon/evening just wandering and doing what we felt like. We ate at a delicious steak house we'd never been to, stopped in a bookstore we'd never shopped at, and of course had to grab a  Starbucks Java Chip frapp! There is no better combination then books and coffee.

Monday, we went up to my parent's house for lunch and to visit. Those lucky ducks just got back from vacation so it was good to catch up and look at their pictures and souvenirs.

We spent the rest of Monday reading new books we got and also writing. I've mentioned before that both J and I have a passion to write, and we now have actual books in the works. Over the weekend I hit the 11 thousand word milestone. Seems insane; but even more insane is how much more I still have to go ;)

How did you spend your long weekend?! :)
Don't forget there is still time to sign up for BLOGGER Fantasy Football- get the deets here!
