Weekend Wrap-up

I had a glorious weekend!  So grand I'm just now getting an opportunity to sit down and blog today.  I need to schedule weekends like this, instead of just waiting for them to happen.

What we did:

Friday night we had leftovers for dinner.  We ate on the front porch and just enjoyed the cooler weather.  We chatted about the wedding we'd be invited to, played around on the computer, and just enjoyed one another all evening.  When dark hit we went inside and watched Kick Ass.  I'd only recommend it if you like disturbing violence.  I wasn't a fan.

Saturday was cleaning day.  Jay called dibs on the washer and dabbled in household projects.  I cleaned and straightened the house, wrapped baby gifts (thanks Marla), played on twitter and facebook. 

Around 5ish I was done and considering starting the last Michael Crichton novel soaking in the tub.  Then I decided it would be sinful to miss an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful weather.  Jay was washing his car so I decided to abandon the book idea altogether and wash my car.  It was too late in the day to get the interior, but the outside looks great!

The NGA Hooters Golf Tournament was near our house, and the course was open to spectators who wanted to walk around and view it so once we finished on the cars Jay and I went for a walk.  The course (and the river) were gorgeous.  I find golf to be boring, but I enjoyed holding hands with my fella.

I had volunteered to give my testimony Sunday morning in Bible study, so I was sure to be up early enough to be on time for class.  I think I rambled and babbled trying to be as nonspecifically specific as I could be.  The floor was opened to discussion and a few people picked up themes from my testimony and shared about their life as well, so I'm hoping they got something out of it.

After church Jay & I met my parents for lunch, then we all went and walked the golf course again.  After that Jay & I just watched Eli Stone on Netflix.  We were laying on separate couches and I said "I wish this couch was big enough to hold us both."  Which prompted Jay to pull out the bed from the sleeper sofa so we could snuggle.  We probably watched 6 or 7 episodes.  It felt nice to not have to do anything and just hang out.

We ended the night Skyping with my sister and her kids.  I love that we've downloaded it.  I'm sure its not high on her fun list to look at me whilst chatting, but I love being able to see the kids.  They like interacting on the web cam far better than they like talking on the phone.

Look up "perfect weekend" in my dictionary and this is what you find. 

Did you do anything exciting?
