Hi everyone! This weekend started off strong and just kept going!
Friday evening I worked till 7:30 and then came home to spend time with my boyfriends parents who were visiting the area for their anniversary. We had a great time – ordered a bunch of sushi, played a game, talked a lot and I was even able to sneak a little reading in (thank goodness for people who completely understand being obsessed with reading).
^Ignore the terrible phone quality pictures but even that can’t hide my cousin’s cuteness!^
Saturday morning started rough with me turning off my alarm for work (oops) and getting to work 35 minutes late. Thankfully it was actually a super slow Saturday so the late start to the day didn’t make much of a difference. We have a new person at work also which is great because that means that I can actually take off sometime when she learns the ropes! After work I had a family gathering for a cousin of mine who is battling cancer and was visiting us from New York and also for a baby cousin who was visiting us from California. It was really nice to be able to see everyone and especially my two cousins – family is truly a wonderful thing and I am very blessed in that department.
Sunday meant church and Game of Thrones day! We actually got there
surprisingly on time this Sunday. It was a great service and really made me consider what it is that I want out of life and focus on the big picture which was a nice change from my constant obsession with the moment and what I want from life right now. After church we visited our friend Mary and then headed back home so that I could drop off bridal shower gifts for a friend of mine (check her out at To Travel and Beyond) and had a nice time catching up. On my way home I purchased a bunch of flowers for the garden also and am now super excited to fully get into that project! I also washed the windows on the house today which felt great – it really helps to be able to see clean windows instead of grime! In the evening I headed over to another friends house to watch the first and second episode of Game of Thrones (since I missed the first episode last week) and eek! So excited that the show is back and we can again start following the story lines of my favorite characters.
