A simple weekend

Linking up w/ Sami today!

I had an extra looong weekend, taking Friday off was a great decision ;) I had one more vacation day before the year was up and it was the perfect weekend to extend by a day.

Friday I spent most of the morning getting my house in order -which was no easy task. I have totally been slacking on the housework, not going to lie. Luckily, it now looks like two human adults live there again--- not 4 years old and puppies.

I also got to visit with my grandma and mom, which was nice :) Family is always good!

Saturday was a BIG day! I got to go wedding dress shopping with my future sister-in-law. Almost all her bridesmaids were able to come, plus her aunt and grandma - and we had a BLAST! She looked beautiful in EVERYTHING she tried on. I'm serious, it was a little bit disgusting how well each dress fit her ;) I don't know how she'll ever choose!!

I had a lot of fun getting to know some of the other bridesmaids I didn't know that well yet.
Kayla- you are so loved!!  And you have good taste in friends-- just saying. ;)

Other weekend highlights included getting lots of quality reading done, getting gas for less than $3 and seeing a Sunday afternoon matinee of Taken 2. LOVED IT- has anyone else seen it?!

Don't you love the simple weekends?! Just friends, fun and relaxation all rolled into one. Perfection.

  10. Ahh yes, I love those weekends! Unfortunately we have busy plans every weekend until mid December. Our gas is $3.37, which I was pumped about until I saw yours, haha.

  11. So much fun! Those are my perfect weekends too! Except I don't think I've seen gas for under $3 since I started driving. And after spending over $100 per fill up in europe I think I would cry!! I'm so excited to see what dress Kayla chooses!!!

  14. Sounds like a fun weekend :) I loved going to stores to go wedding dress shopping, but didn't find what I was looking for. I was looking online today at used wedding dresses (I know, it sounds weird, I was hesitant at first too but...) I THINK I FOUND MY DRESS!!! Ah! So excited! :) It's not at all what I thought it would be. I'm sure your soon to be SIL looked BEAUTIFUL! In all of your photos of her, she looks so happy!

  16. I just love going wedding dress shopping w friends! I mean I obviously loved going to buy my own dress but it is just different after you are married...you know what goes into the whole production, and it makes me feel all nostalgic!

  17. Thanks for coming over to my blog!! And yes, football is the best! I'm a huge Alabama fan, but their game wasn't quite the drama that the USF game was this weekend. I'm jealous of the $2.99 gas. We're nowhere near that here. And simple weekends are definitely the best. I'm hoping mine to come is more restful than the one I just had. As far as running, I'm going to email you back.
