It's that time again.
I think this may just be one of the better weekends I've had lately.
Probably because I wasn't running around like a mad woman.
As usual, I can't remember off the top of my head what we did Friday.
Fridays to me are mostly for relaxing, thanking God I have a job that doesn't require me to work weekends anymore, and laying around with Will.
Saturday Morning I had my first fitting! It went well and got me even more excited to wear my dress.
After my fitting I went and had lunch with Will's parents while he was in class.
They are the sweetest people in the world. I got lucky in the in-law department.
After all that excitement I came home and suffered through the rest of our invites. Seriously putting those things together was the most tedious and mind numbing activity I've participated in in a LONG time. Thankfully, they are now COMPLETE :)
We kept it pretty calm again on Saturday night, which is unusual for us. I'm usually the one begging people to go out and party, but with all that we have going on, I needed a weekend off from hangovers.
This morning I got up bright and early to head to Target. I haven't been there in a while, and my wallet paid for it.
I went in for a candle and came out with a few candles, some new notebooks and pens, a ton of food. The Target in our area recently started offering groceries and it was fab only having to make one stop.
I feel like I spend WAY too much on groceries considering we're a family of two, but I am way to lazy to coupon or plan my cooking around sales. Maybe one day...
I highly recommend this bad boy. Smells like heaven. And will make people I love you :)
As usual, Holly was no help.
This is what the rest of my day will look like. Coffee and relaxing with some cooking, laundry, and cleaning mixed in.
While I was finishing up the dreaded invites I watched the documentary Craig's List Joe, found on Hulu here.
I'd heard of it before, but never watched. It got me pretty damn emotional.
I want to write a longer post about this some other time, but it really hit home with me.
It's about a guy that lives solely off of donations and what is offered to him by strangers via Craig's List for 30 days.
It's so touching and remarkable how even with all of the hate and horror in the world, at the end of the day, most people are just good.
Everyone has a story, and most people's story involves some sort of perseverance, overcoming obstacles, or just trying to be better.
I wish they'd show more of that on the news and less of who is shooting who. We get it, people are dying. Also something I could go on forever about so I suppose I'll just leave it at that.
One of the main reasons I got into blogging is because I deeply believe what I just said. Everyone has a story. Most people's can teach you something.
Here's to the blog world and all of the touching, educational, and hilarious stories I get to read because of this phenomenon.
Happy Sunday people!
