Weekend Recap

Wow!  I can't believe the weekend is almost over.  It seems to have flown by.  This weekend was spent working on projects around the house.  It was absolutely gorgeous here Friday and Saturday.  On Saturday I got the shrubs trimmed, spring cleaning done and even some painting projects completed.  We kept our friends Chocolate Lab, Lilly.  She and Sam have so much fun together.  They entertain one another and are so tired by the end of the day that they both sleep so well.  It also gives us a break from our attention seeking hound! 

This morning we went to church.  Barry teaches our 20's and 30's Sunday School class.  This is actually a new class that we've just started.  We have so many people in this age group, but never really had a class for us.  It's nice to have a great group of people our age to support and encourage one another.  We had a fantastic group of friends before, but now our group has grown and we are enjoying becoming friends with more people and not just studying together, but having a lot of get togethers outside of worship and bible studies.  Barry is even planning a camping trip in May.  During our class, we are doing a DVD study called H20 A Journey of Faith from here.  It has been an incredible study that has made me think deeper about my faith and love for God. 

After church we had lunch with some friends and then came home.  I had curtain rods to put up.  We have had these old ugly gold curtain rods since I moved here 2.5 years ago.  I kept putting off getting new ones.  What was I thinking?  I honestly have no idea.  The new ones are so beautiful and make such a difference.  I am so happy with them.

Then it was time to get ready for our small group since it was our night to host.  I love, love, love our small group.  We have an amazing small group with some of our closest friends.  We are doing a book study on Crazy Love.  I love this book.  It has been a book that makes me think like no other book I've read before.  If you haven't read it, I would highly recommend it.

Only five days until my Spring Break starts and my mom arrives.  I can't wait!  I am so ready for a vacation.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I had a very similar weekend - even down to hanging of the curtain rod! HA! I had these gorgeous smocked curtains that I got on an el-cheapo clearance sale that Pottery Barn had about a year ago or more. I wanted to put them up in my sewing/craft/hobby room when I ordered them, however, have been procrastinating because that will be baby's room. When we started trying again with our surrogate my hopes were renewed and I didn't think to put them up because in hope was wanting to decorate for our baby. Well, after all this time, I decided what the hay and just put them up. I found the cutest rod at Target for a great price. I may even paint the room! LOL You just never know how much time this could take and I need to quit putting life on hold while I wait.

My BFF lives in the DFW area and I saw you live in TX. I loved visiting her out there this past October. It's funny how TX has so many different types of topographies. DFW was completely different than where my other friend lives in Austin. :) Glad you had a great weekend.

Sounds like a great weekend! I wish we had a good small group we were part of, I'm going to put that on my to do list to find asap!! I have heard great things about Crazy Love and will be checking it out as soon as I read the books I've already bought (have I mentioned I'm a book junkie!?!). Glad you had a great weekend! Isn't it amazing what changing one little thing will do for your home! Good to hear you're doing well!! Hugs!

Woo Hoo for the extra recess time!! I remember being in school and SO looking forward to recess when we got to go outside instead of eating pretzels & juice in the classroom. You're such a nice teacher ;-)
