Friday was dinner & a movie at home. Saturday was work in the morning for me, followed by a whole lot of nothingness during the afternoon. Finally around 3:00, we both got motivated to actually do something productive. I certainly was enjoying, my body gradually becoming one with the recliner but after 3 hours of Yard Crashers on the DIY network, it was time to get up and do something. Hubby headed to the yard to mow, & I headed to Walmart for some groceries.
After we finished up our productivity, we went out on a true date! Dinner, movie, popcorn, the works! We went to Zio's for dinner, I just love that place! and then headed to watch The Lincoln Lawyer. I definitely recommend this movie! We both really enjoyed it.
Sunday was church, lunch, more yardwork, and then small group. We were in charge of dinner this week so I whipped up an easy recipe for chicken & noodles, grabbed a loaf of bread, and topped everything off with brownies. Yum! The chicken & noodles is super easy, but much better if made the day before and then warmed up to serve. I just enjoy it so much better when the flavors all have plenty of time to combine.
The original recipe is from here...and was originally created to be a gift for the holidays--but any time of year will work!

Please forgive the shiny face & no makeup...it was 8:30 on a Sunday night, give a girl a break!
