Hey y'all...hope everyone had a good Labor Day weekend!
We had a nice, relaxing weekend. Well, as much as you can relax when it's 110 degrees out! We didn't go tubing down the Salt River, like we did last year! We started watching a new (to us) TV series. That's our thing. We don't waste money on cable, dish, dvr, etc. because we honestly don't watch that much TV anyway. So we rent movies and TV series' from the local library instead. We finally finished LOST, which we started at the beginning of the summer. We are sad it's over and consider it one of the top TV series ever made, next to The Office, of course! Anyway, so we started on season 1 of Friday Night Lights. I have heard from several blog peeps and friends that it's a good show for both husband (football) and wife (love story). It took a few episodes to get into, but overall we think it's pretty good! It's a little scandalous for high school, which I don't care for, but that's how tv is now I guess. We are about half way through season 1.
We have also started Everwood. You know, the sappy show from the early 2000's that came on the WB? I watched a season or two in high school and I remember liking it, so we have gotten into that series as well. We just finished season 1.
Saturday, we had lunch with some sweet friends from our small group and their itty baby boy, Caleb. He's about 7 weeks old and so super cute! We went to a local place to eat, like a salad/sandwich place and it was yummy! We stayed and talked for a long while. Then we made a stop at home depot to get some air filters for our house. It was time to change those grubby things! Hopefully it will help with the electric bill, too!
I can honestly say that one of my favorite things is going to church and meeting up with friends there. It's fun to sit with our group of friends during worship and the service. Our church is doing a 6 week marriage series, which has been nice! We talk about the sermon at our small group meeting on Tuesday nights.
Nate wanted to make homemade oreos again, you know, the kind using devils food cake for the cookies and cream cheese icing for the filling? We went to walmart and got the stuff to make them Sunday night. We also went to the pool for some night time swimming. We were surprised that the water wasn't like 90. It wasn't cold either...felt nice. And I was also surprised there were several other people there after 9pm! We made Sunday night a "sleep over" except I fell asleep on the couch at 11pm and I'm pretty sure he fell asleep soon after!
We slept in a little on Monday and hubs woke me up saying, "can I clean the house today?" This would probably be any wife's dream to hear those words, but I said no way because I didn't want him to clean on his day off! Especially when I am home during the week to get it done. I thought he was really sweet for asking though. He took me to Bath and Body because he knew they were having a sale (somehow he gets those emails..haha) and we picked up some yummy candles, clearance soaps, and I got a freebie body spray in one of their new scents.
See? We had a pretty relaxing weekend! Nothing too fancy. We spent a lot of time together which was nice and much needed because he has been working long hours for a while. This is the first time I've mentioned it on the blog, but Nate is going back to school to get a second Masters! He is doing an online program through Penn State to get a Masters in supply chain management. He is excited because he always likes a challenge. It's about a two year program, so it's not too much all at once....one class per semester, I think. Today is his official start date. I couldn't be more proud of him. I know he will do great and hopefully he will love it! P.S. What is a nittany lion? haha We are Louisville Cardinals in this house!
