Well, it happened. I got the weekend I desperately needed. So much rest and relaxation + friend time and a smidge of productivity. It doesn't get better than that! Lacey came down to visit Saturday evening and it was just what the doctor ordered. And as always, we failed at taking an updated picture together... these from JUNE are our most recent ones. We really should work on that ;)
I took her to our favorite mexican restaurant of all time, we did some Christmas shopping and ended the night with tons of girl talk and TV. Neither one of us had watched Once Upon a Time so we figured we'd give it a whirl. Well, four episodes later we both agreed it was awesome. I'll continue binge watching soon- does anyone else watch that show? I can't believe there are five seasons and it's taken me this long to get into it!!
Even though I missed seeing my Bengals on the field Sunday, it was a non-stressful day of football watching and catching up on emails, blogging and the Etsy shop. I also finally, FINALLY finished my 2013 photobook. If you've been reading awhile you know I do yearly photobooks (Shutterfly is my favorite) and man, they are a labor of love- but so worth it to have. Each year my books seem to get bigger and bigger; pretty sure I might need to split them into part one and part two each year. Up next is my Disney vacation book- they get their own separate one ;)
Other weekend happenings? Jared made another batch of his famous pulled pork, we started filling a couple of boxes for Operation Christmas Child through our church; stocked up on my favorite soaps since they were 5/$18; decided this year we won't be able to host our annual Friendsgiving :( A bit of a bummer but this month's schedule just isn't going to allow for it. However, I think maybe we'll make up for that and throw an ugly Christmas sweater party instead! Any reason to throw a good party!
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
