Another Sweet Weekend

Did I mention I have the most amazing husband in the world? He pretty much spent the whole weekend giving me whatever I wanted. We had so much fun.

Friday after work we went grocery shopping. Yes, we do go grocery shopping together. And yes, I realize how lucky I am. Then we went home and made dinner and he spread out a blanket on the family room floor to turn our dinner into a picnic. So cute! After dinner we went to the library and checked out books. It's been about 10 years since I read a normal book so I had no idea what to get! Any suggestions would be appreciated. We want to go to the library more regularly.

From there we went to the mall and Brandon just followed me around wherever I wanted to go and sat patiently as I tried on clothes, shoes, and swimming suits. I didn't buy anything, but I did go back to Shade yesterday and bought a swimming suit which I am SO excited about.

After that we watched Igor. Definitely do not recommend this movie. It wasn't cute, funny, or interesting. Just plain dumb.

On Saturday we went to the river trail and just hung out and threw rocks in the river. It might have been my favorite part of my whole weekend.


I got to hang out with my parents on Saturday night while Brandon went to his friends' house. It was nice and relaxing.
Sunday was good, my brother and his family came over after Church and hung out with us for a bit, then my parents came over for dinner. And later that night we played games over at Brandon's parents' house. It was just a really good weekend, all around. It's weekends like this that remind me it's no wonder I LOVE weekends as much as I do. And right now, on a slow Tuesday work day, I can't WAIT for the next one.

I'm REALLY playin with the whole Shade thing. I'm not that crazy that EVERYONE has to buy from Modbe. I'm glad you found one that works. Also, I would go up to Phoenix in May, but my duedate is May 11th. So let me know if you have any reason to come to Tucson. We'd LOVE to see you, but the babies getting in the way of us coming. Why are you going to Phoenix??

ya, ok my husband does NOT grocery shop with me. If I beg him to come he acts like a child the whole time we're there, therefore, we don't shop together. so what im trying to say is ya im jealous.

Stephanie, I have so many book recommendations! Have you read "The Book Thief" or "Kite Runner"? Both of these changed my life. Also, have you heard of goodreads.com? You can log on and see what your friends are reading and rate your own books too, it's totally fun!

You are always so positive and happy about life!! As for books, I recommend a website called www.goodreads.com. You can connect with friends and see what books they recommend. I love it and I have a huge list of books I want to read that were recommended by my friends. I think I have read more books since I connected to goodreads than I have read the rest of my life. My email is cameovanduker@yahoo.com if you want to sign me up as a friend and see my list of books.
