Weekend Recap: Weather Day Edition

Monday, April 25, 2016

Two things about this past weekend:
1. All weekends should be 3 day weekends
2. I was horrible at remembering to take pictures this weekend (I did take a few)

I believe 3 day weekends should be the new norm.  Dustin was off Friday-Sunday and so was I and it was wonderful.  The weather was perfect, and I felt like this weekend was a snapshot of this summer!

I am working on getting back into running shape.  For me, that's being able to run 3 miles comfortably, so Friday I got out and ran 2 miles.  Then I enjoyed a post-run snack of Greek yogurt and protein granola while reading the latest Southern Living--my favorite!

Then Mom and I ran a few errands together, I took a nap, and Dustin and I hung out the rest of the night.

The weather on Saturday was even better than Sunday!  I took my dad grocery shopping with me early Saturday morning since he needed to get a few healthier food items.  On my way home, I called my sister to see if she wanted to meet me at the park to walk, and she asked me if we wanted to go out on the boat with them.  Of course!  Dustin and I got ready really quick and headed out on the river with Rachel and Nick.
 We're excited to be backing out of the boat slip!  The first ride on the river is always the best.

 Rachel's dog, Ralph, was so excited to be going out on the river, too!

 We tied up next to my cousin's boat and floated for a few hours!
Bathing suit is from Victoria's Secret--sold in stores only

After a few hours on the river, we ran home to shower and realized that we still had to go up to Mom and Bill's to feed cattle while my step-dad was out of town.  I had just gotten out of the shower, so I pulled my hair up into a top knot and showed Dustin what I used to do out on the farm!
 Dustin snapped these of me without me even knowing it.  He said, "I took these of you for you to put on your blog."  Love him!

I wasted zero time getting those feed buckets filled for us Dustin to carry into the different pens/pastures.  I did what I used to do--open gates.

Then we rushed back to the house for me to dry my hair, straighten it, and put on make up for us to go out to eat with his friends.

After church, we came home to eat and get ready to go to Lowe's to get a few more things for Dustin's latest project:

And we had to pick up fresh strawberries from our local peach farm.

I ran again and Dustin finished his cooler!
 See the level?  He's showing me how perfectly level it is haha!

We grilled and enjoyed supper out on the back porch while listening to oldies--Sunday night couldn't have been any more perfect!

How was your weekend?
