A Great List

You know I love a good list just as much as the next Type-A gal. And you also know I do love to write on this 'ole blog, but sometimes (especially on a Monday) it's easier to sum up a weekend with a list, instead of describing every last detail of what I've been up to the past few days. 

-- We had gorgeous weather ALL weekend long - oh, how I needed sunshine and blue skies! I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful couple of days away from the office and it was nice to have time to actually get out and enjoy it!
-- I also finally have a pair of sunglasses that protect my eyes AND are light-weight. I get headaches really easily from glasses, headbands, etc and Firmoo kindly sent me a pair and I'm now obsessed. I wore them all day Saturday with zero headache! That is seriously a first! If you are in the market for a new pair of shade this summer (or regular eyeglasses, too!) you have to check out their site. I'm a happy customer :)

-- We celebrated a belated anniversary by eating our weight in our favorite gourmet pizza. By the way, Mellow Mushroom pizza is the best out there, hands down.

-- Went back to the church we got married at to take our annual pictures-- even though there was a car parked on one side of the bridge (BOO!) we were able to grab a few cute ones to commemorate anniversary #3!




-- Jared and I watched Captain Phillips via Redbox finally, and absolutely loved it. Such a great movie, and also so stressful!! Tom Hanks is such an incredible actor.

-- Got to do a little bit of Spring cleaning Sunday afternoon which was much needed! We also Spring cleaned our finances and budget and are hopefully ready to rock all our goals this month. I think summer months are tough on budgets, there is so much going on and we want to do a million things, but getting that debt paid off is more important!!

What was on your weekend list??

  1. Sounds like you had a great weekend! I LOVE Mellow Mushroom! :)

    We need to do some spring cleaning as well! It poured down raining ALL weekend here in NOLA so other than church & a visit to my grandparents' for lunch on Sunday, we just lounged around.

    Have a great week!

  15. You guys have inspired me! I finally bit the bullet and started a budget for June. So far, so good. (I'm actually 4 days in since I started on payday on Friday.) Happy Anniversary! Love your tradition of taking pictures where your wedding photos were taken! You guys will cherish those forever and they'll be so fun to look back on in 50 years and see each year that you've spent together! :)

  19. awww great pics! We took our anniversary pics over the weekend too and I'm starting to regret not having a tradition like yours with re-taking one certain pic each year (though we only did anniversary pics year one and this year which is 4)

  20. So jealous you have a Mellow Mushroom by you! I love their crust!

  21. I love the idea of taking your pic in the same spot every year! I wonder if Tim would take me back to Jamaica for ours.... ;-)

  22. What a great idea to take the same picture every year! :) In 50 years you could do one of those "movies" of you guys each year that people seem to be doing with their kids, haha.

  23. Captain Phillips was amazefest. Also, can I just say that I totally appreciate your list-making. I'm Type A personality toooooooooooooooooo :)

  24. I love that you get pictures in the same place every year! That's going to make one awesome photo album in a few years. I haven't seen Captain Phillips yet, but I REALLY want to because the ship that saved him (the USS Boxer) was the ship my brother was deployed on! Also, you're right about Mellow Mushroom - the BEST.

  25. We loved Captain Phillips!! Jon told me the other day that the real Captain Phillips wrote a book about what happened.

    OMG Mellow Mushroom!! Is there one in Cincy I don't know about??

  28. Shawn and I watched Captain Phillips a couple weeks ago, and I've seen again once since then. It's amazing! Tom Hanks killed it in that movie. And amen for the gorgeous weekend weather we have been having!
