|Thanks to my mother-in-law I got this super cute cart :)|
For Mark it meant sitting up the canopy and getting out all the chairs....Thank you honey!
I didn't get pictures of the festivities on Friday night. I was just too busy catching up with friends. I got to see friends I haven't seen in years and I got to see friends that I haven't seen in what FEELS like years. I wish there were more times like these :)
We carried some of the fun over into Saturday. Old Towne Petersburg had a wine festival and don't you know it was just calling all our names. Three of us that went had won tickets various ways....so if that's not a good sign I don't know what is!
On Sunday I made a meal fit for a King....and then didn't eat ANY of it! You heard right. We didn't eat any of it. I froze it instead. I really like to cook and I like when my family can sit down for a meal together. So I made 4 "main" dishes and a couple sides that usually take so long that I tend to leave them at the back of my recipe file. I did throw in a new dish and from the smell of it I think I picked a winner. So this week and the next few weeks I'll be able to still put a home cooked meal on the table after a day of working, going to cross country meets, going to the gym and all those other obstacles that get in the way.

I finished the weekend off sitting out on the deck with my feet kicked up....and I thanked my lucky stars that I have such good friends and such a close family. :) Happy Monday people. It's the start to another wonderful week.
