Memorial Day Weekend 2014

Happy Memorial Day, readers, and thank you to our veteran's, the fallen, and all those who continue to serve today!

My husband and I had a wonderful time this weekend. I took so much time this weekend to just stop, look around, and savor the moments we had.

Friday, I fell asleep at 6:30 p.m. I woke up only to go from the couch up to bed, then fell back asleep. It was a long week and I apparently needed the rest.

Saturday, we took the dogs for a walk at the park. We found a new spot where we could actually let the dogs loose and they really enjoyed that! After a nap, my husband and I went to our friends house to roast hot dogs and s'mores. It was a really good night!

Sunday, we went out to breakfast with my in-laws then took the dogs back to their special place at the park to go for another walk. We had a picnic at my grandma's and relaxed under their big shaded tree for quite a while. My mom and I went shopping, taking advantage of some memorial day sales. Then, later on, my husband and I went for a nice ride in the country. We weren't quite sure where we were going. When we would get to an intersection, he would make me pick a number 1 through 3. He numbered each road in his head, and whichever number I picked, that's the way we would go. It was a beautiful night for a ride, with the windows down. It was relaxing and fun to spend that time together. We ended up going to the lake that night. All thanks to the random number game!

Today, we went out for breakfast again, only this time with my parents and grandparents. After that, my husband and I got some yard work done. And, when I say we, I mean my husband did some yard work while I layed on a lounge chair in the shade and read a book. We gave the dogs their first outdoor bath, and they seemed to like that a little more than the usual.

Later on, my husband got a space ready for our vegetable garden, and I made some hanging baskets from a mixture of flowers we bought.

Today, and this entire weekend, was very relaxing. I am definitely ready for the work week, ahead.

I have my lunch and snacks ready to go for the week. I packed four containers of salad with black olives, cucumbers and tomatoes. I have a cup of fruit salad for the side and a yogurt for each day. I'm going to be having oatmeal for breakfast, as well. Dinners are up in the air for this week. I've got steak, hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken all in the freezer, so I'm sure there will be a lot of grilling out!

As for exercise, I'm hoping to do a lot more walks with my husband and our dogs. I'm going to squeeze some more naps in there this week, too. God is good and we are so blessed! This weekend was such a great reminder of that.

How was your weekend?
