Weekly Weekend Update

Sometimes weekends are a time for rest. Sometimes they are a time for business to get 'things' done and sometimes they are a time to spend with friends.

This weekend was one spent with friends and family.

Saturday I headed to my home town to help throw a shower for one of my best friends Kara. We have been friends since eighth grade and even though our friendship is now long distance we manage to talk almost every day. We stood in each other's weddings and now she is having a baby! I just can't believe it.

The shower was a lot of fun and she got SO much good baby stuff. Everybody loves to buy presents for babies and that was definitely evident at this shower. I completely forgot to take any pictures during the shower, but I was able to get one of me and Kara. I am so ready for baby Isaiah to be here - as I'm sure she is!


After the shower I was able to go to my family's home and spend a little time with them before heading back. I of course spent as much time with this little guy as I could.


Right now my mom has little Yorkie puppies and if Luke and I had a home this little guy (see pic below) would be ours. But right now we are in an apartment and they don't allow for pets and my mom needs to get rid of him before we are in a house. I have never been so bitter to live in an apartment, I already had his name picked out!!! I guess he is so super tiny I could try sneaking him in!


Sunday night Luke and I hung out with our friends Kelsey and Chris. Which was bittersweet because this was their last weekend in town, they are moving to Arkansas this week. BOO! Luke and I are sad to see them go, but also excited for them at the same time! So now we will just add them to the long list of long-distance friends!!

We went and saw the movie Gran Torino. SUCH a good movie. I laughed, cried, got scared, sympathized, got angry and so on. It was one of the best movies I have seen in awhile.

At the theater with Kelsey, right after I begged her not to move :-)

It was such a good weekend, but now I am super tired. I don't feel like I got much rest! Oh well I'm sure I will get plenty of rest in front of the TV this week!! FYI: This season of Lost is going to be AMAZING.
Hope you had a great weekend!

Love the scarf ;)

That little pup is adorable! You could keep him in a box right? Like a big one. Or a crate. LOL That way he couldn't mess up the carpet. Too sad that you can't have him :(

Sounds like a great weekend! I saw that movie too and I thought it was really good. Lots of emotions!
Maybe your mom can save a little pup for you and Luke for when you move into a house! It's worth a try :-)

You have the cutest nephew! I think I say that every time you post a pic of him, but its true!! You should have snuck that little puppy into your apartment.

JC5 said...

Maybe you have a family member, say maybe an uncle with a wife and three kids, who could take care of him until you are in a house??

Cindy said...

That might be the cutest puppy I have ever seen!!
