How was your weekend? Mine was boring but productive! But, last week was super fun and social, so I guess I had to pay the piper. I’m linking up with Heather, etc. so go here for other Hello Monday posts.
First, on Thursday I met my two teacher friends who are at different schools out for breakfast. We went to Highland Morning and it was really good. I started at my current school with these two gals 19 years ago! We have kept in touch and I love that! One teaches Latin and the other teaches French.
Thursday started our heat wave! I missed a photo of when it said 100 in my car, so you’ll have to just see 99 and take my word for it!
Thursday night our boys were out so hub suggested I meet him on his way home from work at this place. It is a bit nicer than the typical Mexican restaurant and it’s really good. I had a gift card, too! Score!
Hub had to dress up for a work photo Friday morning and I took a picture like it was his first day of school. He looks dapper except for his smile!
And, then I had another breakfast date on Friday with my two bffs. One has a crazy work schedule so we have to get together when her work allows. We had pink mimosas!
I went home and planned to have a quiet afternoon but my work friend texted and wanted to meet at a nearby newish brewery. I had been wanting to go and I tried a pineapple beer. It was really subtle and really good!
While we were there a few teachers we know came in and we joined them and chatted for a while. It was really fun. I went home and the four of us just heated up leftovers.
Also on Friday, we got our much anticipated dumpster. I was so excited to get rid of construction scraps!
I don’t know what got into me but Saturday morning as hub and boys were working on the dumpster, I started purging things that will need to be purged when we get to the kitchen. It felt so good! I immediately loaded and took it to the donation center.
Then I did our Costco run I’ve been putting off. I needed laundry detergent pods, tp, paper towels, dog food, and coffee.
After that, summer Amy was worn out. I fell into a Sex in the City marathon. I have watched every episode and own most of the DVDs – ha! Any other fans out there? It is such a well done show IMO.
I cooked dinner Saturday night as hub was too worn out to go out. We watched some tv and I was in bed early.
I finished this cute book Sunday. I do recommend it for a light summer read.
I also read most of this – skimmed some of it. If you are into decluttering or looking for motivation, it’s a great read. I wholeheartedly agree that if you are a slave to your material possessions you are missing out on your life. Even though I love to talk clothing, shoes, and accessories I think you might be surprised by the size of my closet. I’m always a work in progress, though, and need to pare down even more.
We filled the entire dumpster and got rid of the pile and by “we” I mean mostly my hub and our framer. Now, to get the dumpster taken away so we can park in our garage again.
So, was I wrong? A boring but productive weekend! What about you? I’m getting nervous as the calendar days get ticked off. I’m still definitely in summer mode over here!
Hope to see you back tomorrow!
