My Weekend

Hi all!  I hope you had a great weekend.  

Friday night I drove up to Amanda's and she cooked me dinner.  She made her amazing spinach, tomato, and roasted red pepper pasta.  It was to die for!  Oh, and brownies, too (I was spoiled).  We chatted a bunch and planned a couple ideas for potential swaps and link ups.

Saturday and Sunday were spent with family, catching up and just simply spending time together.  When we weren't at Mike's parents' house, we spent some time at our own reorganizing and making it our own.  All of our roommates are finally out, so it's been a lot of de-cluttering and rearranging to make our little furniture fit in the whole house.  We also showed some of Mike's family from California our house since they hadn't seen it in over a year.  We also showed them a lot of "before and after" photos of the house, and I've learned how helpful this blog really is.  I basically used my entire "where I live" label, and they saw everything.  As soon as we are done cleaning/rearranging, I will definitely take some more to add to that tab.  So yeah, it's been great to catch up with so many people.

The weekend ended at a lake house about an hour from our home where Mike's mom is spending the next week with her sisters.  All 7 of the siblings were there tonight, and I always love hearing all the stories about their childhood and just laughing.

I know I mentioned this a few months back, but please keep Mike's family in your prayers.  They are the most amazing family, and I am so lucky to be a part of it.  I have met some amazing friends in the blog world, and I can never describe how much all of your texts, emails, and prayers mean to me.
