New Years' Rewind

After the craziness of our Christmas weekend, New Year's weekend was just what we needed. The perfect amount of time at home just relaxing combined with plenty of fun activities.

I was off work on Friday so I took the opportunity to do a little bit of shopping, Hubby & I had a nice lunch together and then after a good couponing trip to Dillons--we spent the afternoon doing a whole lot of nothing. I spent most of the afternoon with my nose stuck in my Nook reading The Confession by John Grisham. I highly recommend this if you're a fan of Grisham's novels or any other law-related author!

Our New Year's Eve plans were incredibly laid back. We just headed over to our friends' Derek & Andrea's house to spend the evening playing with their kids, munching on snacks, and ringing in the new year together. It honestly was an evening that lacked any photographic opportunity and honestly I was perfectly fine with that.

Saturday was another completely laid back day. After sleeping in, we spent the entire morning in our pj's laying around watching the Rose Bowl. The afternoon didn't look much different, except for a little bit of laundry and just overall picking up around the house. Bogey came in for a visit...& Nick channeled his inner-child with some LEGO construction!

I seriously LOVE this dog!

Enjoying his Christmas present from my parents'...an enormous rawhide bone!

The motorcycle on the left was a Christmas present this year & he got the car last year.

We headed out mid-afternoon for a quick Christmas return, dinner at Maria's (our favorite local Mexican place), and then an evening of basketball at my college alma mater...Missouri State.

Yesterday included church, lunch, & nice long nap and then Small Group Night Out with dinner at a Japanese Steakhouse followed up with bowling. I can't wait to dive into the next Bible Studay with this group! We start up again in a couple weeks!
It's seriously back to the real world today...8:30-5, Monday through Friday with over 6 weeks until the next holiday! Oh whatever will I do with myself?
