Another Wonderful Weekend

Happy Monday!  I had another wonderful weekend.  I packed a lot in this weekend, but had a wonderful time.  I experimented with a veggie burger recipe, ran 8 miles with my run club, entertained family, skyped with Kyla, attended a bbq at my building (a friend has friends that live here!), went to a musical that my aunt was the choral director for, had wine after with my aunt and uncle, and g-chatted with Amber.  Phew! 

The highlight of my weekend was definitely entertaining my family.  We had a wonderful time and they got to see why I am so head-over-heels in love with my life now that I have moved.

The boys, walking through the Farmer's Market, hand in hand.  I love photos of the backs of people!!

Could they be any cuter??
My older nephew Andrew said, "When can we come back?  How about next Saturday?"  So clearly, the kids were won over by my new place, too (the outdoor pool probably helped!).  I am hoping they are frequent visitors!

So life continues to be blissfully good.  Feels really good to say that I would not change a thing about my life right now.

What was the highlight of your weekend?

It sounds like your weekend was jam-packed with awesome! I'm glad your nephews were won over by your new place. That picture of them in the market is adorable!

The highlight of my weekend was probably catching up with a good friend on the phone. He lives in California, and we hadn't had a chance to talk since February.

Sounds like a lovely weekend! :) The highlight of mine was probably a "Cake and Shake" party - kind of a pot luck but with just cake and milkshakes, guitars and jamming together. Tonnes of fun!

Sounds wonderful! That picture of your nephews is so cute!! :)

The highlight of my weekend was having friends over on Saturday night. We grilled turkey burgers and made sangria. It was relaxing and just what the doctor ordered.

The highlight of my weekend was my unexpected two hour nap on Saturday. It was fabulous and just what I needed!

I LOVE your love for life. It's seriously contagious :)

Your nephews are so cute, that photo of the back of them is a framer I think :)

My highlight was probably golfing with our friend and her new b/f on Saturday afternoon. It was fun to be outside, have a few drinks and just have fun with another couple. We don't have very many couple friends so it was a nice treat :)

Sounds like an absolute lovely weekend. Your nephews are just the cutest things EVER. Glad they loved the new place :)

I think the highlight of my weekend was Saturday: Winnie the Pooh (SO GOOD), library, a nap while the kidlets napped and Church with the girls where they both listened to the sermon and I'm pleased to say it was *just* what we and D needed to hear that day too, rounded out with some Chianti and mindless Wii games full of laughter since I had *no* idea what I was doing...

I really like that photo of the boys holding hands. So sweet.

I am glad to hear that you are happier -- it seems like you were so busy and not getting enough time to do things that you wanted before...so...now you are getting everything you want and loving it, it sounds like!

The highlight of my weekend was talking to my brother, best friend AND parents! It was so good to catch up!

This is amazing Lisa!!!! So so so happy for you. You're like a different person! Yay!!!!

Highlight of my weekend was house shopping. I am going out with our realtor tomorrow to re-visit one of houses that we LOVE. So that's equally exciting and scary!
