Weekend Recap

We had a fairly nice and relaxing weekend, I must say. Saturday morning, we got up bright and early to be in Cape by 9:00am for a massage. This is "our" thing. We schedule a couples massage about once a month (give or take) and I have budgted it in to our finances. It is worth every single penny. We look forward to it. It gives us a chance to relax and take some needed time away together. I highly recommend it to couples! I hope we can continue it even when we have little ones to worry about.

After our massages, we walked downtown because there was a Farmer's Market going on. We didn't buy anything, but enjoyed walked through the booths. If you live in Cape, I would definitely encourage you to get up early one Saturday morning and hit up the market! Looked like there were lots of neat options, especially if you were there earlier. We also had to stop by the mall and Target (of course) and grab some lunch before heading back home.

Saturday evening, we drove to Holcomb and met our newly wed friends Kelly & Taylor at Strawberry's. It was such an enjoyable and fun evening to catch up with them!

Sunday morning, we got up and went to church. I love our little church. It is so warm and friendly. It just feels like home. However, Sunday for some reason - everything just was weighing on me and I started crying and couldn't stop! Usually we stick around and chat after church (both our parents/families attend), but I looked and Justin and said "I need to get out of here - quick!" Thankfully he didn't ask any questions and we made a beeline for the door. I just could not speak without boo-hooing! Once we got in the car and headed home, the crying stopped as quickly as it had started. I am not sure what was going on, but the waterworks needed out, I guess.

Sunday evening we had the absolute pleasure of keeping our darling niece, Sophie! Her mom had to be at a very early appointment on Monday morning, so she stayed the night with us. Since Justin is a teacher and has the summer off, he kept Sophie during the day :) He did have to go to football practice for a little while, so Sophie came up to my office and hung out before I took my lunch.

She had a very good time, dumping her cheerios out on my rug, coloring, and watching "Bu Cu" (Blue's Clues) at my desk!

Justin kept her the rest of the afternoon, and they swam in the little kiddie pool we bought. Well, Sophie swam, Justin watched. When I got home she was having a BLAST and did not want to get out. Until we told her she could go see her Momma - then she was ready to put on dry clothes and get in the car.

We are so blessed to have two beautiful nieces and a very handsome nephew in our life to spoil and love. It sure does help make my heart smile, even when I feel like crying!


  1. Ya'll wore her out =) She woke up at aroun 630, ate some supper, and then we took a bath. She went to sleep around 9 and slept all night! She loves you guys and so does her momma =)

    1. Glad we could help out :) We love her momma & daddy, too!
