The weekend of all weekends

So, maybe it's Wednesday….and maybe I'm just now getting around to telling you about my weekend. But to be quite honest, I haven't had a COMPLETELY free, fun weekend in some time. Sure, I always find a way to fit fun in… but I have been at the office WAY TOO MUCH lately. Last Friday made day 12 in a row of working-- So I was definitely ready to let loose over the weekend. And let loose, I did!!

Friday- J picked me up from work at 5:01 on the dot and we headed over to the Cincinnati Reds game. It COULD have been the game they clinched, but they ended up losing that night =\ We still had a blast though, eating at a new place downtown and doing some serious people watching too!

This was our "Reds might clinch tonight" face! #fail
Gorgeous sky that night!

Still thought we might win at this point ;)
Saturday- Jared and I cleaned/organized our BUTTS off. I have been dying just to have a Saturday to sleep in and then get up and be productive around the house/yard. I have a few organization projects I hope to share on the blog soon. I am definitely in "DECLUTTER AND SIMPLIFY LIFE" mode. We have too much stuff, and I want our home to be clutter free.
I mean, do I really NEED this art project from sophomore year of college?! That was 6 years ago! #Whoa 

 It's a HUGE undertaking but we are one step closer after this weekend. I focused on 
de-cluttering inside and J worked in the yard/on the roof all day.
He's such a hard worker :) And I loved that the clouds looked like a heart above him!!!!

We also took J's new car for a spin to get some errands done. I am LOVING that his car is now safe, reliable and gets AMAZING gas mileage, WOOP!!! :)
Please excuse the greasy hair, it's my weekend look ;)

Then that night we hosted our regular game night, Monopoly was the choice, again… although this time we played the "Hilton Head-opoly" version! And it may have turned into a dance party WITH strobe lights afterward…. Okay, it did.
We love our guys & our games ;)

Yep, that really happened. Try not to be too jealous of my Saturday nights ;)

After staying up WAY too late and dancing to one too many Katy Perry songs (not that there is such a thing!) we went to church the next day and came home to watch a Bengals win! To celebrate we had some post-game street football.
J totally clocked our nephew right in the head in this picture- LOL!

Being 2-1 feels pretty great right now :)

Doing a weekend recap on a Wednesday was actually kinda' fun…. because I can now look forward to the upcoming weekend, and it's just a couple short days away!!
