A little late posting today - but it's summer and it's all about being laid back, right?
Even though I'm still in summer school - my day starts later than during the school year. I like that. Almost with it were that way all school year - but then it would mean we get out later in the day & I'm not so sure I'd like that. Getting out of school at 3 almost seems like a I have a full day ahead of me.
So how was your weekend? Mine? It was wonderful. The temps started to warm up again on Saturday - we were caught in the "polar vortex" last week again - NO joke! That's what the weather people said. Believe me, temps in the upper 40s at night in JULY are not the norm. Michigan has crazy weather & I know it can change in the blink of an eye, but that.is.crazy.change.people! I like my summer days warm!
My weekend was filled with a little bit of this.....
Our new neighbor's that moved in back in February, but due to the mountains of snow between us, I didn't meet until probably March or so, had a new baby girl. This makes baby #3 for them - so I made a dinner for them for Friday night. It was my homemade mac-n-cheese, brownies, salad & garlic cheese bread. Yes, there was beer in the mac-n-cheese, but it cooks off........and if it doesn't, it'll help the kiddo's sleep better, right?
Just trying to be neighborly. Don't judge me.
I did a little shopping as I'm sprucing up the "family room" for my special guest coming to visit this week. SO excited to finally meet her IRL (in real life). New bedspreads, sheets, and a little shjooshjing up makes me a happy girl!
I found a couple bottles of my favorite brand of wine. Being the Middle Sister - I am automatically drawn to it due to it's name, but it is a pretty tasty wine as well. Again - I'm a happy girl.
Saturday Dream Boy headed up to Holland with his buddy for the Holland Hundred Ride. They rode 102 miles in about 5 hours, averaging 17 miles per hour. God bless him - he loves to ride. I enjoy it too, but not to his level.
With the day to myself, I started it off with a family photo shoot, which included 3 dogs! I'll post more on that shoot later this week. It was a beautiful morning and everyone was in good spirits.
I then headed home and picked up a little fuzzy monkey butt along the way as her mama & daddy were up north for the weekend.
Once home, the rest of my Saturday was filled with some of this......
Fuzzy Monkey Butt Midget loves to chase the chipmunks! She can get that little nose of her's right down into their holes.
I decided I needed a little shjooshjing up too, so I changed my looks. I did some home highlighting! Haven't done this in about 4 years, so decided it was time again. Whoa baby. SHOCKER! Pulling off the cap & looking in the mirror made me go, "wha-the-what did I do?" But I'm embracing the blonde and having fun with it again. Dream Boy came home around 6 and we ordered from our favorite little mexican restaurant in our little village - Nina's. He picked it up and brought it home so we could enjoy it with an ice cold golden beverage. We ordered a side of chips, which were still warm - freshly made. LOVE them.
Sunday took us to church and then to our favorite cafe for some food and fellowship with the other regulars. We headed home and basically vegged the rest of the day away until S&D#1 came for dinner, where we feasted on grilled chicken. veggies & rice. We topped off dinner with dessert - D#1's favorite part of any meal. We had root beer floats - best way to end a perfect day.
So it's Monday & I am starting the 2nd week of session 2 summer school. Only 2 more after this and then I have 3 weeks off. I'm looking forward to this Thursday & Friday when I get to meet up with a couple of blogging buddies and spend the day(s) with them exploring with our cameras the shoreline of Lake Michigan.
Have a great week everyone! As always, thank you for sharing your coffee time with me today!
