This was a pretty marvelous weekend; mostly because of how little I had to do! From Friday after work to Sunday night, it was a really relaxing weekend, which is what I needed!
After work, I headed to my parent’s house to see my mom before she left. Though I will miss her this week, and know the 3 hour difference is hard, I just hope she is having a great time!
I followed that up with my grocery shopping! I planned out our meals during school so I knew exactly what I needed. I really enjoyed going on Friday and beating the crowds, and having it done for the weekend!
The rest of the night included making some buffalo chicken roll up (not so great) dinner, followed by a Breaking Bad marathon with Aaron and Benson on the couch. It was exactly what I needed after my long week. I ended the night with a little reading in bed, and fell asleep on the early side. Amazing.
Aaron and I planned on heading out for a run at 8:30. I woke up at 8, and saw the temp was 43 degrees. Being I have weather induced Asthma, I chose to wait a bit longer until it reached at least 50, so I let Aaron sleep and grabbed a small bowl of cereal. Around 9ish, it had warmed up and the sun came out, so I headed out for my run, where Aaron followed soon after to join me!
I refueled with a delicious homemade pizza. Mmm, paired with an apple- delicious!
Soon after, Aaron headed down to Deep Creek with my dad to take the boat to get fixed in the afternoon, so I spent the day crossing off items on my to- do list. I had so many, but I busted through it! It even included some shopping at the mall, where I managed to not find what I wanted, but found some cute workout shirts at Gap (pictures to come) and random things at Target (connected to the mall.. good and bad at the same time!). P.S. For all of you who have been blogging about Diet Coke, I am not craving it! It’s the only pop I like, and I never enjoy any. However, I was feeling tired while shopping, and it sounded amazing, so I enjoyed it
Once Aaron came home, we made some dinner, made a Crab Dip, some Salted Chocolate Chip Caramel Bars , and pumpkin spice cookies before his family came over! Well, just his siblings, and Matt joined us. We ended up having a bonfire which was a blast.
Oh, and we caught the grass on fire! Who even knew this could happen? I think we have a permanent spot for our fire pit, now
see that black under the fire?
This was the busiest day of our weekend, but still wasn’t bad. I managed to have a relaxing morning with blogging and tea, followed by church with Aaron. Right before we left, Aaron picked Benny up and I saw this..
Ha.. he looks like a porcupine! He really just enjoys jumping on our sink in the bathroom and laying down. Aaron decided to turn the water on this time; rude.
We quickly headed to my parent’s because my dad was waiting for us to help him cut some wood for our desk (it’s slowly but surely coming together!). I love that my dad is so great with tools, and has them all to cut wood! This would be a huge problem, and I wouldn’t be able to have this desk if he didn’t have the tools! I spent the afternoon painting the wood, while Aaron suffered through the Steeler game. Maybe next year, Steelers.
After heading to his families for dinner, I finished up painting the second coat, packed some lunches, prepped dinner for tomorrow, and then enjoyed some time relaxing!
Ended the weekend with this beautiful sunset. Amazing.
