Friday night Hubby grabbed some BBQ carryout and we headed over to our friends' Derek & Andrea's house for dinner & games! They are such important & great friends so as always, we had a great time. After a few games of Wii with the kids, they went to bed & we played spades the rest of the night...Boys vs. Girls of course. At this point the score stands 1 to 1 so there will most definitely be a continuation of the series!
Saturday we lounged around for a bit and then began the annual task of putting up the Christmas lights. Hubby definitely does most of the work as I just supervise, hand up new strands of lights, staples, or anything else, and just pray continuously that he doesn't fall off the roof. We did take a quick break to have lunch out on our deck...it was a perfect afternoon and I can't hardly wait to take advantage of our deck all next Spring & Summer. It was a bit early to hang lights, but the weather was too beautiful to not take advantage of so they're up...just not turned on. We've still got our tree and some additional bushes in the front to take care of, but the lights on the house are up!
After our hardworking afternoon we had made plans to head down to Branson for dinner at our favorite restaurant, Cantina Laredo...as we were getting ready to leave we glanced out to check on Bogey one last time...and this is what we found!
Apparently earlier in the afternoon I hadn't gotten the deck gate shut and curious Bogey found his way up there...unfortunately the wind shut the gate on him so he was locked in! Thank goodness we checked on him before we left! Otherwise we might have come home to a bunch of destroyed stuff!
Dinner was fantastic as always, we did a little bit of shopping, & basically just thoroughly enjoyed our time together! I'm so grateful for the weekends we get to spend together, it's those times that I realize just how blessed I am to have Hubby & how perfect we are for each other!
After dinner I talked Hubby into taking me to Target to purchase our new area rug, as you might recall we got a new chair for our living room a couple of months ago & it looked less than fabulous with our area rug. I had found a fairly cheap one at Target that I thought would look great...so what do you think?! I'm super happy with it! It's the perfect color of brown but has a woodgrain texture so it's not just a plain brown rug.
Today we headed to church, had a great lunch, and then headed to visit my grandma. Hubby hadn't been to visit her in a little while so we headed over there to spend some time with both her & my grandpa. We were there for over an hour & she looked great. I am more confident each day that she will be home by Thanksgiving. The rest of the afternoon consisted of laundry, football, and possibly a quick nap for me! The weather has turned quite nasty & I think November has finally arrived so the rest of the week may be less than desirable! Oh well, this is the last full week of work before we're off to Michigan for Thanksgiving!
