This weekend felt perfect. I got a lot of my "to do" items done, but also had a lot of family time. It didn't feel like I was necessarily doing chores, but just having fun.
Saturday was filled with family. Bill and I met up with my parents, as well as Deanna and Brent for breakfast. I love going out for breakfast. Then Bill and I had a blast running all over town finishing errands and doing a little bit of grocery shopping.
When we got home, we did a bit of cleaning and a bit of relaxing. We followed that with hosting a Chinese dinner for my mom's side of the family. It turned out to only be eight of us, but it was so inviting, and intimate, that I thought it turned out perfectly. We laughed a lot and just had a really great time.
After dinner I got to reconnect with some friends that I hadn't seen in awhile. It always feels good to see old friends.
Sunday was another great day. I slept in and then Bill and I went and worked out at the gym. Lunch at the Pita Pit and a trip to my happy place, aka Target, completed what felt like a great afternoon. We even went to Lowes to buy a ladder and summer gutter stuff to fix our gutter that the ice had pulled down. Somehow, this boring task of fixing our gutters didn't even seem like a pain. Something about fixing the place that you call home can bring about a great feeling of accomplishment. It was also a good thing we did this as we woke up at 3am to a serious thunderstorm/tornado warning, and a torrential downpour. So glad the gutters were fixed to help with the drainage!
So while the weekend went extremely fast, I wouldn't have wanted to do anything differently. It was perfect. Even the part where I had to scrub the shower...
