weekend in review

This weekend was fabulous. I mean, you just can't beat an 80's craft night and beautiful weather. Here's the rundown of what we were up to this weekend...

Friday night, about 15 of my favorite girls came over for an amazing craft night. We sung 80's songs at the top of our lungs, played with puff paint and all went home with friendship bracelets...

We all needed a little refresher course on how to make friendship bracelets, but after a few rounds of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and some gummi bears, we were all braiding away.

Lance and I spent most of Saturday volunteering at our church's Medical Clinic. About 3-4 times a year our church hosts a free medical clinic for the neighbors in the community. We have doctors, nurses, dentists, massage therapists, chiropractors and people doing hair and nails... it's quite an event, and I always feel so blessed to be a part of it.

Saturday evening, we headed over to the University of Louisville's men's soccer field to watch the #1 ranked Cardinals take on the #2 ranked UCLA Bruins. Sometimes I forget how close we live to the UofL campus. It was so easy to grab a bite to eat and head over to the soccer field.

The stands were pretty much full by the time we got there, so we found a great spot on the top of the hill. It was fabulous. UofL won 2-0... guess they really are #1 in the nation. We will definitely be doing this again.

Then I finished my weekend off with a relaxing Sunday. It was a nice day with no agenda... perfect for a few home improvement projects. I decided to go ahead and paint the little $4 night stand I found at a yard sale a few weeks ago. It turned out really cute... don't worry, I'll be sure to show you guys the finished product soon.

So... that was our weekend in a nutshell. It was so nice to soak up some time at home, seeing that this coming weekend starts another whirlwind travel series. How about you? How was your weekend?

Sounds like fun! Saturday was busy (laundry, work, more work); Sunday was not (church, HOME all day!). Overall it was a good weekend. :)

How fun! I need to plan a little get-together like that so I can make myself get some scrapbooking done.

What a great idea and a generous thing your church does for their community. How great that you got to be a part of it!

Can't wait to see the "reveal". Sounds like a very relaxing and rewarding weekend.
