Weekly Weekend Update

One of my favorite things about my blog is updating how we spent our weekend. I am one of those weird people that saves ALL my planners of years past. I have all of my planners from college and sometimes I dig them out just to see what I was doing on this day 4 years ago.

Yes it is weird, but I am sentimental like that. SO, I love having all of the weekends of Luke and I's first year of marriage recorded. That way I can look back and see exactly what we did!

This weekend was a fun one.

Friday I got my Mexican Food fix with some yummy enchiladas, followed by the movie Marley and Me. We won't discuss my state of mind after this movie. I had already seen it once in the theaters but thought I could handle it again.

It was hard to get through.

Saturday I spent the night tackling this project:I finally decided to put all of my wedding pictures in the wedding book. It was hard. I had a specific order I wanted to put them in, and each page held only 2 vertical pictures and 3 horizontal. So I had to match them accordingly. It was difficult, but I tried to maintain a smile while doing it. (or maybe just for the camera)Sunday we decided to drive to my hometown to spend Mother's day with my family, because not only was it Mother's Day but it was also my Mom's birthday! This is how we spent the majority of the day: Just hanging out, it was so nice!Then we headed out to grab some yummy pizza.
At the restaurant:Thank you Dad for cooperating in the picture taking segment of the day.After dinner we headed back home and just hung out before Luke and I had to hit the road. Luke and his favorite nephew:Maxton listening to some tunes. He prefers John Mayer and Coldplay.
It was such a great weekend!
Sometimes it is hard not living close to our families, so it is nice when we have impromptu time with them!
I am excited for the week because I have a short work week! Woo Hoo!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

It drives me nuts to organize pictures, much less deciding how I want to arrange them! Good for you and your family is precious! My birthday was this weekend too, I wonder if your mom and I share the same birthday?! I am so happy you got to spend time with your mom! Great pictures!

It looks like you had better patience than I would have had tackling that project of yours!

Sounds like a nice weekend with your family! Love the picture of your nephew with the ipod... too cute!

Rachel said...

Your nephew with the ipod in his ears is adorable!

I am the same way about calendars and planners. I love looking back and knowing what I was doing on this day back in whatever year. I started using google calendar about 3 years ago, and I love it, because this way I have accesss to my schedule wherever I have a computer. I love going back and looking at the past :)
