First Weekend of August

I'd say the first weekend of August was a successful one. First off, thank you to EVERYONE who linked up for Football Friday. I had so much fun reading everyone's posts and hope to bring back the link-up here and there throughout the season. While Friday totally got away from me (aka- I worked way too late and then napped off and on for the remainder of the evening) Saturday and Sunday made up for it in fun!

Since I went to bed SO early on Friday, I practically jumped out of bed Saturday morning. It's amazing what a good night's sleep can do for a person…. I should really try sleeping more. Jared and I spruced up the house for awhile, got some laundry done and then set out for a day of errands. We dropped off three huge bags at our local Goodwill and then hit up Home Depot to get some supplies for an exciting house project. Details on that to come! 

After making about three other stops we were back home and ready to have some friends over for game night. I have no idea what got into me, but I decided to whip up some cookies. Mint chocolate chip cookies that rocked, if I do say so myself ;)

The rest of the night consisted of:
Snack runs to Jungle Jims, complete with car dance parties along the way.

Competitive and hilarious board game playing--- you MUST get Anything Goes if you don't have it already. Think charades on steroids…. and then some.

Music video making to Taylor Swift in honor of someone's 22nd birthday coming up this Friday:) and Skyping with my bloggy bestie Robin (She met all our best friends and wasn't too scared. Win!)

Sunday we worked on our mini house project and enjoyed a lazy afternoon of Netflix per usual. It was a gorgeous evening so we went for a nice long walk around our neighborhood. We've been making an effort to get out and enjoy the nice weather more while we've got it! 

I have a lot of things I'm excited to blog about in the next week or so! What did your weekend consist of??
