weekend recap

Saturday was SDSU's homecoming, known as Hobo Day.  My parents came up for part of the day and joined us at the parade.   It was a little chilly for the parade with the temperature in the mid 20s.

We got a good view of our nephew this year in the high school band.

We hung out around home the rest of the day. We watched The Five Year Engagement Saturday night. I thought it was pretty lame and Dave thought it was ok.

I spent a good chunk of Sunday painting a Christmas sign for myself.

I distressed this one.

I painted one for my mom last weekend.

Now I just need to figure out how I'm going to seal them since it's too cold to do it outside with the spray I usually use.

Hope ya all have a great week!

We had a little winter preview this morning.  I snapped a couple pics quick with my phone as I left for work.  Not great pictures but I like to document the first snowfall.  I'm a weather nerd. :o)

weekend recap

Dave and I headed for Mitchell Saturday morning to attend my godson's 8th birthday party.

We went to my mom's house that afternoon.  My brother was an usher in his friend's wedding so we didn't get to see much of him.  Just a quick hi and a picture and that was it.

We spent the rest of the Saturday and part of Sunday hanging out at my mom's house.  It was a relaxing weekend!

Hope you're having a great week!

weekend recap - bullet style

  • Dave and I went out for supper Friday night to celebrate his birthday.
  • Dave surprised me with some flowers Saturday morning.

  • We invited Tony, Jackie, and Sarah over Saturday night to share Dave's birthday dessert.  I made this peach dessert.
  • Sunday evening we went out to supper with Tony, Jackie, Sarah, and Conor.
I've had a heavy heart since I read this blog post yesterday telling about the passing of Julee's husband, Matt. Even though I don't know her or her family personally, I feel like I know them from reading her blog over the past few years.  Such a sad reminder that life can change in an instant.

fall decor

So as I mentioned, I put my fall decor away over the weekend.  I took a few pictures to share before taking it down.

I'll post my Halloween decor later...hopefully I'll get it done before Halloween is over!

weekend recap

The weekend started early for me.  I woke up at 5:11 AM and couldn't go back to sleep, even though I tried for a good half hour before I gave up and just finally crawled out of bed.  Dave was already up so we decided to go out to take some pictures of the sunrise around 7. Nothing turned out very well but here's a few anyway..
country road...

interrupting breakfast...

We went to Taco John's for lunch then decided to go out for a drive in the country.  We went over into Minnesota and stopped at Lake Benton for a bit.

Sunday we hung out and watched the Vikings game. I took the fall decorations down and put out some Halloween decor while Dave visited his brother for a bit.  That was pretty much all the excitement around here on Sunday. :o)
