Wonderful Weekend

We have had a great weekend. Friday I took the day off (since we are not going on a "real" vacation, I've decided to just take a few Fridays off instead) and spent the morning picking up and getting groceries. That afternoon I went to the community pool for the first time! We've been in our subdivision for almost two years (we were one of the first 12 homes built out of 70) and they FINALLY finished our pool/clubhouse. I wish I had a picture of the clubhouse, but I don't. I'll try to get one this weekend.

The view from my chair! I didn't have my camera, so this is the best I could do on the blackberry.

I spent the day reading my current book, Pretty In Plaid, (which I LOVE!) and meeting neighbors! It was definitely a good day! (Doesn't my ugly bruise on my knee look great? I wish I didn't have my ugly leg in the picture, but since I couldn't really tell what I was taking a pic of because of the sun, you can see my ugly bruise...evidence of my aspirin use for my clotting disorder.)

Yesterday I went to the Farmer's Market with my mom to stock up on some veggies and then helped my neighbor Andrea set up for our neighborhood block party! We had a great turnout and already planning another one for possibly Halloween night! How much fun would that be?!

We had the party in Andrea and Jonathan's yard. We had a HUGE turnout! This was still pretty early and as you can see, it was already a great turnout!

Brittney and I. In case you don't know this story, Brittney and I met through Kelly's blog a few months ago when she just happened to click on a link to my blog and then noticed that my house looked like one down the street from her house. Not only did it look like one in her subdivision, IT IS in her subdivision!!! Haha! So, it took us both blogging and reading a blog about a family in Arkansas to meet a neighbor! We love to tell this story!

This is Andrea's little boy, Jackson. Michael and I love Jackson. He is so sweet and is a lot of fun! He loves to ride his bike in our driveway since we have a slight incline and everyone knows it is more fun to ride your bike down a hill! He showed the other kids our driveway and it ended up being the cool place to ride last night. At one point I counted 14 kids in our driveway with bikes or some other toy!

Today was yet another rainy, lazy Sunday. I don't know if we will ever see our boat again if this Sunday weather keeps up! We slept in and then got ready and ate lunch at Panera. We also walked around the mall and went to dinner at Bluewater downtown with Michael's best friend, Chad and his girlfriend, Natalie.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. This week is shaping up to be a busy one for me. I think I am going to be paying for the nice, quiet couple of weeks I've had lately!

Looks like fun!! What a cute story about you and your neighbor meeting through Kelly's blog..too funny!

I love that your neighborhood has block parties! Mike and I were just talking about the fact that no one seems to have these where we live. I am glad to see that the traditional block party still lives on! FUn!

I have never been to a block party before. Sounds fun.

Lauren said...

That is such a cool story about how you and your neighbor met, haha!! :)

What a crazy story about meeting your neighbor! I live in Chattanooga and LOVE Bluewater. Good choice for dinner!! My husband travels for work and I stay at home with my 8 month girl so we can always get together since you're local!
