2 Movie Nights = A Sure Sign Of A Good Weekend


Happy Monday everyone! I hope that everyone had a great weekend! It was a cold and sometimes dreary weekend around here but we made the most of it!

We had an early start to celebrating the weekend together because Ryan and I both had dentist appointments. Ryan got off work at lunch time and we all headed to the city! As not fun the dentist is, the outing together was nice! We grabbed some pizza on the way home for later that night. After Sam went to bed, we re-heated our pizza in the oven and started out movie night! We were going to watch a movie on Netflix but the internet wasn’t working…#countrylifeproblems

So, instead we rented a movie on the dish. I talked Ryan into watching The Other Woman. It was actually a pretty good movie that we both enjoyed!


I was up pretty early feeding Sam on Saturday morning. As we were sitting there I could hear the rain hitting the window! There is something so comforting and cozy about being snuggled inside, holding your sleeping baby, and listening to the cold rain hitting the window.

We had plans to do some outdoor work on Saturday but were forced to make alternate plans because of the weather. We packed up and headed to the city again!

We grabbed groceries and then met my parents for lunch. After we were all done eating, we took the short drive over to the hospital where my Grandma has recently been admitted.

It had been a few months since she had last seen Sam and it was fun to sit back and watch them interact!

Tomorrow is my Grandma’s 93 birthday and so we did a little celebrating while we were there! It sure did make a commotion and her neighbours kept peeking into her room to see what was going on.

Unfortunately, visiting hours ended all too quickly and we had to head home. Sam missed his big afternoon nap because of our visiting so he went to bed very early! Finally, our internet was working again so we were able to settle down for another movie night!


We decided on The Heat, a new release to Netflix! We loved this movie and spent most of it laughing away!

Sunday morning Ryan was up early to head for the golf course! Probably one of his last rounds of the year! Sam and I got ready and headed to church where we enjoyed a nice service with our church family! We are so lucky to belong to the church that we do! Sam is at the point where he is rarely quiet during the service. He is at this weird stage where he is too young for Sunday school, yet too old to be content sitting for the whole hour. Thankfully the whole congregation and wonderful minister are very understanding and just smile when he makes a fuss.

After church, Sam and I headed to my parents where he took a nap and we had breakfast! A couple hours later, Sam woke up and we headed home to relax, take a walk and then get ready for the up coming weekend!

I did learn this weekend that when getting ready to head somewhere, I need to start getting ready to head out the door 10 minutes earlier then normal to make up for the bundling up process! Having a spring baby I’m not use to this coat/hat/stay warm thing!

How was your weekend?



  1. loved seeing sam at church and seeing Maddy and Julia just hover around him!

  2. I loved The Heat!! Such a funny movie!
    I hope Grandma Hamilton is alright!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend! I loved both of those movies :)

  4. I adore our family friendly church. I had a lovely visit with Grandma Hamilton yesterday. She was thrilled to hear about your piano lessons. We had fun chatting about who we think Sam looks like.

  5. Did Ryan actually like The Other Woman? I loved that movie! But I wasn't sure what a guy would think as I found it to be a lot of woman human (like we are not staying in and braiding each other's hair!)
