Saturday, you were perfect.

Saturday's weather couldn't have been more perfect for Jared and I's free day together. It was nice to wake up early and get our groceries and errands done well in advance of lunch time. We stocked stuffed our fridge with fresh produce and we're hoping to try a 2 or 3 day juice cleanse this week. That makes me hungry just to think about, but I'll be sure to update you all on how it actually goes down.

After a productive morning we decided to hit up the frisbee golf course again near us. I'm terrible, but now that we've started going a little more, I'm improving A TINY bit. It's always fun, and it's awesome that we can walk over to the course since it's in the back of our neighborhood. Sidenote- I look weird in hats.

We were feeling especially adventurous that day, so Jared brought along his backpack and after an intense round of frolf, we decided to walk to our local library. We've walked to the library before and knew it was only a little over a mile walk from our house so we didn't think anything of it. Until we were well past the mile-mark and realized we weren't even close to the library yet. We didn't really take into consideration the location of the frolf course to the library… we were only thinking about where our house was.

Needless to say, I think Jared and I ended up walking about 5 miles on Saturday. Although it was unintentional, we had a blast. It was so sunny and nice out, and it felt good to be out doing something active and fun together. It's summer after all and we have to soak up these gorgeous weekend days when we get 'em!

The rest of our weekend consisted of a cheap dinner out, church, a baby shower and catching up with some family. Another weekend gone in the blink of an eye somehow. If only summer felt like summers as a teen. Sure, I had a job back then, but one with weird hours and all kinds of flexibility. I could rearrange my schedule just about any time I wanted to spend a beautiful day in a friend's pool. If only real-life jobs were like that, I'd never want summer to end. But since this 9 to 5 gig isn't changing anytime soon… please, let every Saturday be like this one!

  1. That sounds like such a fun day - I love when adventures just happen :) I agree...real jobs need more flexibility! Like if I wanted to sleep in till 10 and then come in into work that would have been awesome this morning :P

  3. Frisbee Golf sounds amazing, I just told Jay about it and he says there is a place in Ottawa to play it- I am so intrigued! Sunny Saturdays are the best (and I totally agree about missing high school summers)!
    Happy Monday!

  6. That last picture of you two is my fave! Cutest couple!!
    What a perfect Saturday!
    Also, Eric tries to insist that I get a ball cap but I can't bring myself to do it. I think I'll look soooo weird wearing one, but you don't! It looks so cute!

  7. What a fun day!

    You look just fine in a ball cap - I personally don't have one that looks great on me either, I don't wear them a lot as well. I probably should but I have this thing that it gets annoying when that band on the hat gets sweaty from your forehead.

  10. That sounds like a fabulous Saturday for you & the hubby! & I totally agree with you, I wish that we were teens again so all our summers consisted of was bonfires & time at the beach. Ah, to be young again...this being an adult thing SUCKS! :p

    1. I only own one hat (i think!) so I'm just not used to how I look in them, I guess! ;)

  12. This sounds like such a great weekend! I miss summer when work and responsibilities weren't a concern. But I've been doing my best to make sure that every chance I get, I'm making the most of this summer and making memories every chance I get!

  17. love those unintentional long walks, you get the best conversations and just down time to forget about everything else going on. Looks like a fun weekend!

  18. What a fun weekend! I've never been frisbee golfing. Now you have me wondering if there are any parks around us! I love that picture of you and Jared - you both look so great!

  20. Ya know... I feel like I totally didn't appreciate summers as a teen as much as I should have!! Haha. And OMG.. I'm still super jealous that you have a Jungle Jim's near you. I'd be there all the time. And that's saying a lot because I despise grocery shopping. ;)

  21. That market looks pretty amazing!! And your hair in that last picture is so pretty!
