Weekend Rewind

Fall has finally arrived. The weather was absolutely gorgeous...and honestly, a little bit chilly at times! It was definitely a welcome break from the craziness of last weekend.

Friday night we did pizza & a movie with some friends of ours. It's actually one of Nick's colleagues and his wife and it was our first double date with them. We had a wonderful time & I was wishing we had chosen to do something other than watch a movie so we could just hang out and chat all night. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps was the movie of choice & while it wasn't completely horrible, it got a little long in parts & was honestly a little hard to follow if you weren't completely up to speed on all the financial lingo. We still had a great time & hope to have many more double dates with the Yount's in the future.

Saturday meant work for me & class for Hubby. I was also in charge of picking my parents up from the airport as they were due back home from a week-long trip to Yosemite National Park. We were able to come home a chill for a bit before it was time for my grandpa's birthday party. About 18 of us met up at Zio's for dinner & cake and had a great time.
Most of us...not the greatest picture, but the best my aunt could do from the end of the table!

My fabulous grandparents...and the best cake flavor ever: Chocolate cake with homemade cream cheese icing--a family requirement!

Our family has the tendency to be a little loud & our poor waiter was the only one assigned to 18 of us! He did a fantastic job & was even gifted a piece of cake...he was SOOO happy!
After dinner, Hubby & I along with my cousin and his girlfriend headed back to our house for a relaxing night of college football. We considered going to a local sports bar to hang out, but eventually decided on our house. I'm so glad we made that decision--we were actually able to watch the game and enjoy some great conversation as well.
Today we had church, followed by a quick lunch, and then plenty of yardwork. The yard hadn't been mowed in 2 weeks and was in desperate need! I also said goodbye to many of the annuals I had in pots...they were just looking tired & I decided that petunias, snapdragons, & sweet potato vine just looked a little odd with a couple of mums. So now the mums are in and it's looking a lot like fall around here!
With the early service at church, we were able to do all that and still have a couple hours to just veg out before small group. We had another fabulous small group meeting & a great walk with Bogey. Now it's time to actually be productive and get some chores done....laundry and dishes to be exact!
It's time for another week...here we go!
