a good weekend

We had a wonderful weekend.


Saturday morning we hung out in bed for a little bit. Then we got up and headed over to a flea market that our city has once a year. It was like a bunch of garage sales all in one place (which is both fantastic and very dangerous for my pocket book). Alas, we got out with only a small purchase: a $3 Xbox remote control (which we had discussed getting the week prior) and 2 books, $0.25 a piece. Then we came home and had a big pancake, bacon and egg breakfast.

Later that evening we dropped Isaac off with a friend and Ben and I got dressed up to go to a fundraising banquet for the local crisis pregnancy center. We had such a great time!

The little guy has been "walking" with the help of daddy. I know it's only a matter of days...

Sunday we slept in (well kinda). After we got up and got some things done around the house we noticed a pile of stuff sitting on the neighbor's curb. They are getting ready to rent out the house and were cleaning our all of the previous tenant's junk. Their junk is now our treasure! I found a set of rabbit ears and a dtv converter box. I hooked it up and we now have free tv! Total score.

I also found 2 boxes of small Christmas bulbs, perfect for filling vases to set up on the mantle. And there were also a bunch of un-used cardboard boxes.


For dinner I made homemade chicken noodle soup. It would have been a little bit better if the weather was cooler. I mean, I thought it was November? What's the deal Texas?!

In the mean time, someone was go, go, go all day long.


How was your weekend?? Have a lovely Monday!
