Relaxing Weekend At Home

I spent my whole entire weekend at home for the 
first time since we have been married this weekend!
It felt amazing to not have anywhere to go 
or have obligations to be somewhere at a certain time!

I guess I didn't realize how much running I have been doing
this Summer til Sunday night when I told Anthony
that I felt so relaxed and for once in months didn't feel 
anxious or sad for Monday to start.

Don't get me wrong I absolutely LOVE fun-filled
weekends hanging out with friends, going to the pool,
Sunday cookouts with family, even going to the drive-in movies til 2 a.m.
but there is nothing like a nice long 3 day weekend with nothing to do but relax
and that is what I did!!!

Friday morning Anthony let me sleep in and when I got up 
he had already gone to his internship. 
I decided I wanted to go to a yard sale that someone had posted 
on Facebook earlier in the week
So I headed there but never even made it to that yard sale
because I was sidetracked by a different one.
I pulled over and after browsing around I found a whole bunch of patio stuff

I have been looking for something to spruce up our plain & boring patio
since before we moved in actually!

I found a pop up tent gazebo thing for $40!!!
then I walked around the corner to find outdoor seat cushions, $10!!!
Tent lights for the tent gazebo...
wait for it...wait for it...
I was in Heaven and quickly scooped up my findings, handed the woman
my three $20's and I was out of there!!
Dancing my merry way home! 
I couldn't wait for Anthony to come home to see my jackpot 
and of course help me set everything up!!

We spent Friday & Sunday night sitting out on our patio 
enjoying each other's company and listening to music!
Saturday it was raining so we ended up renting movies and 
cuddled up on the couch.

I also may have spent 2 hours scrubbing our 
kitchen floor with magic erasers..
not so relaxing, yes I know, but it had to be done!
Since we have moved in I have swiffered it multiple times
but it just wasn't touching it.
Those poor floors probably hadn't had a good scrubbin' in almost 
ten years, no exaggeration!
They are sparkling now though and Anthony keeps 
telling me how amazing they look.
If only I could cook as good as I scrubbed that floor!

This upcoming weekend is not going to be
nearly as relaxing as this past one but it is going 
to be jammed packed with lots of fun!!
There is going to be some country music listenin' & dancin'
late night drinkin' & game playing with friends
and rounding off the weekend on Sunday with
Church and the Spiker Family Reunion.
Lots of fun & lots of runnin'
