Weekend Recap 8/21-8/23

In an effort to encourage us to take more pictures and be more present on our days off, I am going to start doing a weekend recap each Monday.  This weekend was a great one!

Friday night~Not much happened.  J and I actually argued a bit because he wanted to go play in a pool tournament and I felt like he’d rather be doing anything but hanging out with me.  He did end up going and I had a quiet night on the couch with the pups; reading and watching some tv.

Saturday~We hosted a BBQ.  We try to have one at least once a summer and hadn’t had a chance to have any this year.  Quite a few people showed up and they were from all different groups of people so it was actually a bit difficult trying to make sure you got in time with everyone.  It brought me back to our Wedding day all over again, lol.  A great time was had by all though.  I brought the camera out but forgot to take pics during the actual party but here are some before and afters.

You know it was a good party when all the empty crockpots and dishes are sitting on the counter the next morning!

This is just the playroom on the first floor.  The basement playroom is destroyed too.  There were so many kids here and they clearly had a wonderful time, lol.

We also got to make this announcement after receiving this in the mail earlier that day:

Wahoo!!!!  We're live!!!!!

Sunday~This was my favorite day of the weekend.  Seeing everyone on Saturday was fantastic but today was just J and I and it was sorely needed.  I woke up before him and had a couple cups of coffee while continuing to try and catch up on all your blogs.  I also had a good chat with my friend Tracy from CT.  When J got up we started cleaning up and getting the yard and kitchen all picked up.  We headed out to this little diner nearby for breakfast and then came home to watch our Pack!

This is the first time in I seriously don't know how long that J and I laid on the couch together.  Thank God for football season coming back!

Even Rocky was on the couch being lazy with us and watching the game.

Unfortunately, one of our very Best players, our beloved Jordy Nelson was injured right in the beginning of the game and if it’s as bad as they are speculating, it could seriously hurt our chances for a great season.  😦  Hopefully, he’s okay and back on the field soon.  We also ended up losing which totally sucked, but at least it’s pre-season.

After the game (with a little nap during it), we finished cleaning up and then headed out on some errands.  We decided to stop by B-Dubs to grab some food to take home and found the best crowns there.  It’s been a long time since we’ve just let loose and gotten silly.

Long overdue silliness between the Buffalo Princess and the #1 Pick! Love this man!!!

As the summer comes to a close (J heads back into school tomorrow to start meetings and preparing for students), this weekend was just what we needed.  I hope y’all had a great weekend also!

Lots of Love~Dawn
