I hope you all enjoyed your weekend as much as we enjoyed ours!
Here is our weekend recap that rolls right on into our upcoming week...
We actually went to visit with everyone in the family, but these are the only two I actually remembered to snap a picture of and I only remembered to do this on the way out the door (as you can see we are in the garage saying our goodbyes)!
We enjoyed BBQ eating and couch sitting and football watching! Chris got in some much needed time in "his sanctuary" (also known as the golf course) and I got some in mine (the pedicure chair, lol)! Mom and I had some quality time getting our toes and eyebrows done and I even got to visit my grandparents and some out of town relatives in from North Carolina! It was great!
One of the highlights and I suppose the "main" reason we went, was for....
...our first annual Family (and friends) Fantasy Football Draft! :-)
I am so excited to finally get my family in on the fantasy football fun! We had a great time at the draft and I am SOOO ready for the season to start Thursday (even though my quarterback is already injured, lol).
The other main event late this weekend and rolling on into our week was ans is lots (and lots) of RAIN!
And, it appears it will keep raining (at least a little) through Thursday of this week! Whew. We needed rain, but this is A LOT of rain. As in, it started raining Sunday evening and hasn't stopped yet... literally.
The really good news is, it brought cooler temperatures with it! Yesterday it didn't even get out of the 50's. I LOVE IT! I am so ready for fall, it's a little sneak peak and a welcome change to the hot and dry days of summer!
Other things going on: Chris' Aunt has experienced what we all consider to be a miraculous recovery from heart surgery... one that turned from somewhat "routine" to in-depth and life threatening. She is now out of ICU, walking, eating, and visiting... a real miracle! We are thanking God for the blessing and praying for a speedy recovery!
And, meal planning. We are repeating some meals this week that I ended up not making, so much of this is repeat, but here it is anyway:
Chili (I couldn't resist)
Steak and Peppers with Potatoes
Pepperoni Pizza bites
Chicken Salad Croissants
Pork Tenderloin with Smoky BBQ Ranch on buns
Football Food... not sure what yet ;-)
