Happy Monday Tuesday! My days are already thrown off for this week. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. The weather is absolutely beautiful in my neck of the woods. Our winter was insanely mild, and I feel as though we are already jumping into summer. I've worn shorts every day since Friday.

Bryan's parents were here Thursday and Friday. His mom and I got a lot of stuff together for the rehearsal dinner. We found some really great finds at local flea markets to go with the outdoor theme. Friday afternoon it was too lovely to sit inside, so Ivy Belle and I decided to sit on the front porch and have a glass of wine.

Bryan and I went to the 9:30 church service for the first time on Sunday. It is amazing how that gives you such a longer afternoon than going to a later service. I broke out the flower power pants and yellow shirt. I think Bryan had to put on his sunglasses to look at me.

After lunch with friends, we headed to the lake with one of Bryan's hunting/fishing buddies. They fished while I caught some rays. {B couldn't believe I took a pic drinking Mic Ultra--I said it is the perfect beer for the lake.}

Yesterday was all about manual labor. Why hire anyone when I am around? Just kidding...sorta. I headed to my parents' house to help my mom clean out her back flower bed. It was not just a "weed pulling" venture, but a "dig multiple inches of dirt out to get all of the roots" venture. That's all I did. All. Day. Long.

Honestly, I had a great time and spent a little more time getting color on my cheeks. This is me in all of my glory. I probably drank two gallons of water. {Yes, I lathered on 45 sunscreen multiple times.}

I've got the window open with a fan tucked in it to give a nice breeze into the house. It is supposed to be another pretty day today. Friends are coming over for dinner and I need to figure out what to cook. We might go see the Hunger Games. Did any of you see it this weekend? I've heard mixed reviews. Some people think it was amazing, while others who read the book were disappointed. I'll let you know what I think!


  1. What a fun weekend! I always feel so much better when I get to spend time outside in the sun :) I got a late start on the Hunger Games and am reading the first book now have heard the same mixed reviews on the movie. Can't way to hear what you think!

  2. Loving all of this warm weather! Although today is a tad chilly..isn't it funny that we think 70 degrees is chilly? :)

  3. looks like a great weekend! i've heard mixed reviews too, but I haven't read the book yet so I bet I would like it! Hoping to start the book today or tomorrow!!
