Another Great Weekend

This past weekend was great. We got a lot done and had fun too!!

I was off Friday, so I picked up my mom and we headed over to my sister's house. We went to lunch and then did some shopping!!! We hit up a thrift store that my sister frequents often and scored some like-new maternity clothes and baby clothes. I love a great deal!! Then, we headed back to my sisters where my Bro.-in-law fixed us dinner. After dinner we went to bible study at our church. It was a great day!!

Then Saturday morning we dropped my car off for a much needed oil change and to get the inspection done on it so I could get my license plates renewed. We also had great weather for working out in our yard. I had gotten some flowers the day before, so I planted those and we put down new mulch in our front yard landscaping and around the 2 remaining trees that hadn't been done yet. Here are some pictures!

Here's a picture of our house back in March, just to give you a "before" picture.

Now here we are in June. We put down new mulch in the landscaping and around the trees, trimmed all the bushes and planted new flowers.

New flowers for my front flower pots. Impatients.

Landscaping to the left of our door. We added new mulch over here too and trimmed these bushes. We planted these box woods 4 years ago and each year they get just a tiny bit bigger. Its going to take a while for them to get to their ideal size at this rate, lol.

Then Saturday evening we went out for my Mother-in-Law's birthday. Jake's two brothers, their wives, my MIL and Jake and I went down to Lafayette Square for dinner at Square One Brewery and dessert at Bailey's Chocolate Bar. We had such a fun evening.

All of us at Square One Brewery.

The yummy and ginormous dessert I got at Bailey's. It was the Banana Bread Split!

Then yesterday morning we went to church. After church the guys went and played golf while my mom, sister, nephew Landon and I went to my Aunt and Uncle's house to swim in their pool!! Even though its been in the upper 90's here lately, yesterday it was only in the upper 70's/lower 80's. So needless to say it was a bit chilly for swimming, but we braved the cold water and got in anyways. Once you got used to it, it wasn't too bad. Landon loved the pool!

My mom took this picture with her phone, from my Aunt and Uncles top deck overlooking the pool. This summer they plan to extend the upper deck down to the pool. Which will be great!

It was a great weekend. As always, I was sad to see it end. Hope you all had a great weekend as well.
