Happy Friday boos!
I can’t believe I actually made it through the week! I haven’t been this glad to see the start of the weekend since…well, about 7 days ago!
Oh, if only we could get paid to lay outside in the grass, soaking up the sunshine…hmm, perhaps I could put myself out there for a sunscreen testing position…only I guess it would suck if the product failed. Lol!
So with the hustle and bustle of the week, I didn’t get a chance to tell you guys about last weekend! I had a little talk with BB last Friday and explained that while I LOVE going out and
spending money doing things, the fund-age only goes so far…especially when I just paid for my plane ticket to BLEND…thankfully he is a man of few monetary needs so we ended up having a great FREE weekend (well, for me anyways)!
I have a hard time sleeping in on the weekends since I’m usually up around 5am for work or a workout during the week, so I typically end up rolling out of bed around 6:30 or 7:00. BB tends to work a little harder at getting his beauty sleep so for a couple of hours in the mornings, I have a bit of time to enjoy First Breakfast and some blog reading…last week I got caught up with my favorite diva while noshing on some PB Cheerios and apple cinnamon Chobani (YUM!).
Once my little bed-headed man got up, we spent some time laying around the house together before we went for a nice Saturday afternoon drive…
BB had mentioned that he wanted to stop by a gun shop down the road before we left…next thing I know he’s buying a brand new rifle and then looks over at me…
“You know, I really could use some ammo…”
With a simple nod of the head, we were on our way to Dick’s and a little over an hour later, I had one happy boy on my hands!
So much for “some” ammo….
Sporting goods stores are to the BB as is grocery stores and farmer’s markets are to me!
How can you look at that face and not smile?
While we were there, he also picked up a few things of the fishing variety for his nephew and the next day we took a little road trip to give him his “presents”
It was the PERFECT day for fishing…
But I decided to let the boys have they’re male bonding time and sat on the bank of the pond with my recent literary obsession…
At the rate that I’m reading the second book in The Hunger Games series, I should finish it the night before the NEXT movie comes out!
Of course, I couldn’t help but be on standby with my camera to get a shot of what the boys caught:
While they enjoyed the rest of the afternoon talking reels and fishing lures, I ventured around the front of the house (how cool is it that they have a huge pond in their backyard?!) to find some other things I deemed photo-worthy.
Like this GORGEOUS azalea bush…
A sleepy kitty…
And BB’s nephew’s Easter bunny!
I mean, seriously, could she get any cuter?!
I’ll admit part of me thought about stuffing her in my purse and smuggling her home with me!
But in the end, maturity* won out over stealing from a child so, bummed, bored and bunny-less, I chose other ways to entertain myself and BB on the way home…
And BB’s favorite:
Have I ever introduced you guys to my cousin, Itt?
*Such a strong word.
And BB and I have more fun AND free time planned for this weekend!
The annual River & Spires Festival in downtown Clarksville has been one of my favorite spring events for years!
Arts & Crafts, Live Music, and a wine tasting tent!
Hopefully I’ll be able to get some good pics to share with you guys!
