- amazing long weekend -
I absolutely love Memorial Day weekend, because to me, it is the kick off to summer! Even though it's always usually cloudy and slightly chilly in our neck of the woods every Memorial Day weekend, it still gets me excited for all of the fun times ahead! I am going to force the hubs to compile our summer bucket list today, so I can post it now, rather than in July, like last summer (fail last summer!!).
We had a pretty great weekend...first weekend in a month that we were able to just hang out and have fun, with no responsibilities hanging over our heads. We kicked off the weekend on Friday night with tacos, margaritas, and a dance party in our living room! (yes, that's how we roll these days on a Friday night!). Saturday consisted of some errands (boring), then an awesome dinner with some friends. Sunday was the best! We took Ellie on a train ride to a neighboring town and had lunch, and enjoyed the sun! She absolutely loved the train! Super inexpensive way to keep her happy! We definitely have to try that again this summer! And on Monday, I was determined to paint two stucco walls outside our house. They were painted a horrible mint green, and it was driving me crazy every time I drove up the driveway. Well, if you know me well enough, you know that I have no patience for things that are not absolutely perfect, so I decided to paint our stucco walls on the hottest day this weekend. Let me just say, I might have had heat stroke when I was done, but they got painted, and look pretty amazing (if I do say so myself!). Then our awesome friends brought dinner over, and we finally relaxed in our backyard, enjoying our new house. Not a bad weekend, at all!
Now it's back to the grind...but we're in luck! Matt and I both have only 3 days weeks...we're going away for a much needed, adults only weekend on Thursday night. I can not wait to spend two quiet and amazing days with my hubby!!
And because there's not such thing as a post without pictures, here you go! Some pictures of Ellie in our backyard...relaxing and enjoying the sun!
