weekending/ Hello Monday

Happy Monday!  I'm linking up with Tanya over at The Other Side of the Road, and her friends, for this blog post. 

The weekend got off to an exciting start~one of my best friends thought she was going to have her baby that night, but her contractions stopped after they got to the hospital and they came back home.  I am "on call" for when this happens, and I packed a bag and went to her house right away.  Though I hated that there was no baby for them and sad to see them come back home, I had fun with their little girl and we played all night.  I came back home around eight thirty and watched tv for a little while.  Todd was at work, Noah had worked that night until seven thirty, and the other ones were hanging out with friends.

On Saturday, I went to Costco for some things.  The weather turned cool over the weekend (PRAISE HANDS!) and I got to wear cozy things all weekend. 

I bought this olive green cardigan a couple of weeks ago from Marshall's, and it was on clearance for $12.  I love when that happens!  It's really long and soft, and I came home and changed after Costco, into comfy clothes and threw this over the leggings and t-shirt I had on.  Also, my nails are really long for me.  I've been getting them done with the dip powder, and it's making them stronger.  It's a gentler process than the shellac I was getting.  And I can go for three weeks between visits, which is nice, since it's a little more expensive.

We stayed home the rest of Saturday, with Toddley watching football all day, and me trying to read a book.  (I'm in a rut.)  I went to bed early, and look at what I get to crawl into every night. 

I love when the weather is cool enough to pull out my favorite blanket to add to the end of our bed.  It's so cozy!  We've been sleeping with my window open, and the boys have been opening theirs as well.  We're still loving our new windows. 

I was at church early with Toddley yesterday morning, and then we came home and ate lunch.  I squeezed in a fifteen minute nap after meeting with my stepdad here about him building our new porch covering, and then I was back at church at three for choir practice.  After that I came home, and we ordered pizza for dinner.  Drew had some friends over to hang out for the day, and after we all ate pizza together, they left to go play football.  I finally found a book to read that is holding my interest, so I read for a while before calling it a night and going upstairs.  It was a great weekend.

Today I'm going to our church for a while to work, and then I'm going to the library and to Kroger.  I need to figure out what's for dinner for tonight before I make the Kroger run, so hopefully I'll think of something.  In the meantime, I need to start on laundry and get dressed for the day.  Thanks for reading!  Love to all.
