A Summery Weekend


Happy Monday everyone!! I hope that everyone’s weekend was as good as mine! I can’t even put into words how awesome it was! It was relaxing yet fun and it was the first full activities that made it feel like summer!

The weekend started out right by hanging out with my little buddy (aka niece) Faith. We played, raced and laid down in the cool grass.


After a quick pizza supper we headed to my brothers for an impromptu bon fire! The kids were so excited and were a hoot to be around! They were giggling, playing and just being silly! Just a lot of fun!

It was such a relaxing evening sitting by the fire with family. After a couple of s’mores and a snuggle with the kiddos, it was off to bed!

Saturday morning I had to work but it was a quiet morning and I got a lot of catch up work done! That afternoon, I headed into Quyon to meet the girls and then we crossed the ferry to head out for supper celebrating Sara’s birthday! It was awesome getting together with all the girls chatting and visiting!

That night, I headed to Bristol to meet Ryan at a stag. This stag was on the happy couples home/farm. They cleaned out their barn to hold all the partiers! It was one of the coolest party locations I have ever been to! It felt like a true summer party! Warm night, sand floor, live band and cold drinks! I think someone needs to host a barn party every weekend! It was so fun!

Sunday morning it was a relaxing morning and then I headed to Shawville for lunch for another group of good girlfriends for Amanda’s birthday! We stopped in at the ice cream shop for an ice cream after lunch and then sat in the warm sun visiting.

That afternoon, I came home to a surprise from my hubby! I have been bugging him for a new clothes line for over a year! When I was away for lunch he went a purchased the stuff and set up my new clothes line! I immediately went and did a load of laundry JUST so that I could hang it on the line!

Ryan and I put out all our flower pots and bird feeders! It really feels like spring now! I can’t wait to get planting some new flowers!

This scene was a common one around these parts this weekend. Me, rocking on the porch reading my new book! I started reading the first book of The Mortal Instruments on Friday and haven’t been able to put it down since! I can’t wait for the movie to come out in August!

It is getting too warm to cook inside so Ryan and I have been BBQing most of our meals! Last night was BBQ ribs with homemade sweet potato fries and homemade coleslaw! Yum!

Overall, it was a summery and fantastic weekend! Bbqing, soaking up the sun, barn party, supper/lunch with girl friends, family time…perfect summer weekend! Can’t wait for more! I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!

    Unfortunately for me as an addict, I need my crime fix.
    At each house you have the hostess serve something small to eat, and host
    a small game.
