Wonderful Weekend

This weekend was just great. Relaxing, and I loved it! Friday night, after attending visiting hours for a former classmate of Z's who recently passed away (more on that later), we came home and were so tired we ended up falling asleep at like 8:30pm. Yeah. Pathetic, I know. We're just a bunch of boring old married people already! ha!

Anyway, Saturday we heard a great sermon at church and got to know a couple of guys that go there a little better (we think we've finally found a church!!). We really like it there! And, as has been the tradition for the past few weeks, we stopped at Culvers. Salad for me, Butter burger for Z. And as always, the constant struggle to say no to their frozen custard. Toture.
We then took our usual Saturday afternoon nap (kept it to an hour this time!). Then we decided to get some exercise in and go biking. We loaded our bikes on the truck and drove to the bike path. It a really pretty one- it was actually a tow path for the Miami-Erie Canal! Which is probably only interesting to you if you're a history buff, but oh well. Anyway. Z headed out to go to a friend of ours' to help with a young men's bible study. That left me alone for the night. I HATE being alone in the house, so I got out and ran a bunch of errands. Who knew Target had great prices on packaged deli cheese?!? I also got sick of the battery running out of life on my Sway, and stopped at the Verizon store to swap it for this baby:
The LG Chocolate 3 in blue. Normally, they charge you a $35 restocking fee, but I made friends with my customer service rep, and she got her manager to waive the fee! Yay for being nice! And, so far the battery is a million times better- I love it!

So then Saturday night I got into a 'good wifey' mood & made Z his fave fruit- Chocolate covered strawberries!... And my mom's famous Berry Good French Toast Bake for the morning. All I have is a crappy picture after it had already been half eaten and put back in the fridge, but it will have to do! I swear those raspberries looked way better in the beginning. :) Then on Sunday I also whipped up a Caramel Apple Crisp. I even got brave and went recipe-less. Didn't turn out bad at all!

Anyway, I just love laid back weekends! And it reminds me how much I totally look forward to being a stay at home mom. Z and I were talking about it- it's funny how God has taken my drive to climb the corporate business ladder and instead made me want to take on a challenge so much more eternally important- raising Godly children! Although, I don't want to be the mom that never works or brings in any $$. After all- the Godly woman described in Proverbs 31 worked & created income for her family! That's why I'm thinking about going into Interior Decorating. Such fun! I'm so looking forward to this journey Z & I are on together!

Hope you had a great weekend!

oh my goodness. I can never say no to Culver's! And to think my hubby had never experienced it until he moved to the upper midwest...

And I totally share your sentiments about being a stay at home mom... I feel a little surprised that I am so eager to give up the career that I worked so hard for. It's kind of a strange feeling. A big shift in priorities. But I'm okay with that...
