How does that happen?
All I can see are visions of Christmas coming nearer....
But there's quite a few weekends between that & now... & I'm sure they'll all be just as busy.
Friday, I got home & just thought, I'm doing nothing. All I wanted to do was watch Disney's "The Descendants"... seriously - I was so excited about this show, I felt like I was a tween-ager myself. A fun movie about the children of the Disney villians?!?!? ... & Belle & the Beast's son?????... this had my name written all over it....
|I even wore a Disney shirt Friday night for the occasion!|
As it was finishing up, I didn't realize we were going to have a little slumber party at my house.
Ricky got home from work & just collapsed. I figured he was out for the night... & about 9:30pm I was sitting on the couch crocheting my blanket & finishing watching the movie & here he comes... & he's wide awake. We ended up staying up till 2 am just watching TV (thanks Big Brother After Dark), laughing & talking. I told him we hadn't done that since we started dating. It was a fun change.
... & then I just slept on Saturday...
I'm too old for 2am slumber parties.
I ended up getting up at 9am - which is earlier then I thought I would - & Ricky had to get out & take care of some errands.
My morning blurred by while I worked on my Bible Journal for the day.
I love Saturday mornings with my Bible Journal....
But it didn't last long because I packed up my baby stuff & headed to my friends house to take pictures of their new baby...
Oh my goodness. Emery just wanted to curl up in a little ball & lay on your chest. Yep... I could have stayed there all day holding her.
I don't have any of the edited pictures uploaded yet,(the above pic is just with my phone) but I love that they wanted to incorporate a guitar in their pictures... I may have my new favorite baby picture ever...
I got home just in time to unload my gear & grab my paper work & headed up to the local coffee shop to meet with my new bride & her momma. I just love this family. I love this momma... she tells it like it is. & she wants nothing more then her daughter to have the best day for her wedding. I'm in total agreement with her.
But Chasity met up with us for the meeting & brought Emerson with her... so after the meeting we headed over & grabbed some dinner.
The exciting news about Miss Emerson - she's a full time walker now... & now, apparently she doesn't think she's a baby anymore. She just wants to go go go... and GO. Who has time to sit & eat?
I got home & the evening was just wonderful. It was warm, but no humidity & I still hadn't had time to get in my run for the day so I changed & then Ricky said he was going to come along with Harvey. It was nice to have the company. Not so nice having Harvey side line me a few times & nearly take my legs out from underneath me. The dude does NOT know how to walk straight... its a constant zig zag.
I got my shower in just in time to hit the sack with a wet head... another day done.
Sunday had us back at church with those awesome kiddos...

We had a quick meeting after church & then Ricky & I headed out to grab some lunch & pick up some things we needed.
I am starting a buying freeze for August... trying to stop the unnecessary spending. So tell me why I went to Target? Talk about torture. I mean, they have a canvas print of Belle that I had in my cart the whole time I was walking around... because... well... its BELLE!!! ... sigh. I put it back.
& then they had THIS!
A silver Polaroid camera bank! I NEED!! ... I NEED!!!
sigh... I put that back too.
This not spending thing is hard.
We stopped & got Starbucks - because that IS a necessary buy!!! - & Ricky had to end up throwing his away. Boo! :( That was $4.00 wasted. I on the other hand tried the cold-brewed coffee for the first time. YUM! Money well spent.
Got home & started editing pictures & then ended up helping Ricky with the yard. I just need him to start the lawn mower & then I'm good. It felt so nice outside that I actually enjoyed the 'walk'
& then before you know it - the sun is down & its time to get ready for another week.
So got lots done... have a load I didn't do... & my to-do list is incredibly long.
My life... always busy
How was your weekend?
