Monday Musings...On Tuesday

Happy Monday Tuesday everyone!!  We had a BUSY weekend!  I took Monday to recover, and as you might've realized, I also didn't post Week 10's house update!   Today is actually Daniel's Birthday (which I will post about later this week) so I've been prepping/crafting for that as well as trying to get in some time with family!

Here's a sneak peek at what's been going on at the house....WINDOWS AND DOORS!

And here is our weekend in review:

On Friday, we went out to dinner with Daniel's family and then headed out to Spittoono XXXIV.  Spittoono is a Music Festival held each year that has free admission and all proceeds on Beer, T-Shirts etc. goes to local charities.  We try to go every year because it's fun and laid back.

This year, however, I didn't even make it to the last act at Spittoono!  I was completely exhausted and we left a little bit early!


Daniel rode his bike on Saturday...A LOT.  I spent this time reading, cleaning, and doing laundry.  I know it sounds boring, but I feel like I accomplished tons!

Daniel's mom snapped a picture of him on their ride!  Isn't he so cute?

Saturday evening, Daniel and I had a date night.  We went out to eat and opted for a 9:45 pm movie.  I just need a soapbox for a moment...whatever happened to an 8:00 movie?  It gave you plenty of time to go out to eat and get to the theater!  These days movies start AT dinner (6-7 pm) or the middle of the night!  Off the soapbox now!

We saw If I Stay.  I read the book a while ago and wanted to see the movie!  It was good, but I felt like the movie version spent a lot of time trying to make you cry and I really wasn't that emotional in the book.  Daniel gets two husband gold stars:  1. for seeing the movie in the first place 2. for being seen in public with me as I openly weep.

Our next movie will be a book we both love:  The Giver.  However, I will probably openly weep in that one as well!

Sunday was the 2nd Birthday of Lucy and Lola!  As you can already tell, I love celebrations and this milestone couldn't go unrecognized!  We had a mini party for them in the yard complete with Easy Cheese cakes and presents.

I also spent the day baking cakes for Daniel and a friend at work.  I managed to finish all of my birthday shopping for Daniel and craft some as well!

Throughout the weekend, I was also doing some reading for my Master's Class.  Tonight is my first class session and I'm a little bit excited because I'm a nerd.  

How was your weekend?
