We enjoyed a very laid-back weekend. The kids were out of school Friday so I worked from home and let them have a play date all day long. It’s amazing how kids can busy themselves for hours together. They had a fantastic time, although their bathroom and my closet were victims of the fun. Friday night we went out to Ruby Tuesdays and all enjoyed the salad bar. The kids were off to Scott’s parents for the night so you’d think Scott and I would have a great date night planned but no, these days we head straight to sleep. I still can’t believe I’m always the first one up these days.
Saturday morning I was up early doing edits on my eBook (I’m showing the title, cover and release date tomorrow!!) and then I convinced Scott to go with me to finally meet and have coffee with Sarah Cunningham. I read her book Picking Dandelions (go buy it!) a few months ago and connected to so much she was communicating. I knew we’d get along and at least from my perspective, we did just that over the next two hours. She was a great encouragement to me as an author, I enjoyed getting to know her a little more and it was great getting an update on One Thousand Premieres. If you haven’t checked that out yet, please do so. They are planning to retell the story of David and Goliath in a modern way and I am so psyched about it.
After that, we were off to the mall so I could get some jeans I could actually fit. Over the summer, yes, I let a few pounds creep on. And honestly? I’m not that motivated to work them off. I was happy to find Express had their jeans on sale AND I had a coupon.
Saturday afternoon Emma decided to stay over at Scott’s parents while Lexi went to a birthday party. We were all back together by dinnertime so I made some Tilapia and we played Monopoly.
Sunday morning was the normal these days…church, CVS and lunch. While Scott went on a bike ride and Emma stayed at Scott’s parents again, Lexi and I hung around the house (read: I worked on my book and she watched TV). Last night again we stayed in. We played Twister and Scott built a fire. Somewhere in the mix, Emma and Lexi were playing on our hammock and I think some strings got tangled and pulled and Lexi lost a tooth. Thankfully it was a baby tooth but oh the drama! We never did find the tooth. Last evening some friends came over to enjoy the fire that wouldn’t burn…all the wood was too green. Scott improvised by burning some paper and it didn’t matter anyway, we were having a great time talking.
So that was our weekend. I hope you had a great weekend and start to your week!
