weekend festivities...


This weekend was fabulous. It was spent at home. No planes... no suitcases... no plans. I love what comes from a weekend with no plans... you just never know...

On Friday, we turned this....

...into this...

...which resulted in this...
...a wonderful date night at The Cheesecake Factory. We have tightened up on our budget a bit lately. Don't worry, we cashed the coins in for dollar bills at the bank before we actually paid for our dinner. No, we didn't just leave a bunch of rolled quarters on the table... thought about it... but we decided that might get heavy in the waiter's apron for the evening.

I enjoyed a yummy caramel apple spice from Starbucks for dessert...

While Lance caught up on recent events...

Saturday involved a quick spray paint job...

...an amazing Goodwill find...

...and a massive organizing overhaul.

And Sunday included a walk to and from church...

Oh, and a couple of photo shoots (sneak peek soon). Told you. A weekend without plans is sometimes the very best kind of weekend.

That does sound amazing. All of it. Proud of you for saving so much change! We're working on it, but then we've only been married and saving spare change for five months. So, we'll get there. :)

Also, I love walking to church. We did for a month till we got a "new" car. It was really neat. :)

Very cute boots!! Unplanned weekends are the best. We also found ourselves at the Cheesecake Factory this weekend! Quarters would never last that long around our house. We don't use cash, so quarters are hard to come by!
