Our Weekend in Review

Oh weekends....how I love them so!  But they always pass so quickly and then its Monday again.  C'est la vie!  This weekend was very relaxing and much needed.  We were glad to welcome spring with arms wide open :)  Yes the season is officially here, but that doesn't always guarentee nice weather.  The weather here, though, has been AMAZING!!!  Saturday was in the mid to upper 70s and today and tomorrow are expected to be in the 80s!  Seems more like summer, but that's ok with me, I'll take it!
Fridays, Brandon and I have fallen into a pretty nice little routine.  When I get home from work, we usually go work out, stop by the grocery store, and come home to shower, cook and watch a movie.  We bypassed the grocery store this past Friday and picked up some take out from one of our favorite restaurants within walking distance from our apartment, Basil.  They are a delicious thai restaurant and Brandon and I love hot and spicy food so we love some Basil!  (I also love it because it always leaves me with leftovers :)  After quick showers we were ready to eat and finally watched "Life as We Know It".
I've been waiting to see this movie for a while and we finally got it from our queue.  A little chick-flicky (cause that's a word), but I thought it was pretty funny and Bradon laughed a lot, too :)

Saturday, we slept in a little bit and then had our first pool day of the year!  Haha, saying it sounds a little funny, the pool in March?!  I know, but it was gorgeous out, not a cloud in the sky!  We weren't the only ones out there either, so I say pool season for 2011 has begun!  That afternoon, we made our way over to my grandmothers and then over to my brother and sister-in-law's, Josh and Callie, for a cookout!  My mom and Aunt Stacy were in town visiting for an early birthday celebration for my Aunt, so that of course called for a family gathering :) and the weather could not have been better!  Josh and Callie have an awesome back yard, perfect for grilling, chilling, and playing!

So of course I took a panoramic!
We played with my niece and nephews while my mom grilled up some bbq chicken! 

Cutie Wells! (The youngest of Josh and Callie's sweet babies!  Already 14 months though, not so much a baby anymore!)

Mama grillin!
My sweet Jude on his balance bike!  Love his sweet smile and curls!!

I realize this picture is blurry, but I LOVE Wells' face in his swing!  Too cute!!

Couldn't leave out Roen :) We're still trying to learn the setting on our new camera, so thankfully this action shot was less blurry!

We had fun eating dinner, we had quite the spread, and just hanging out together afterwards!  Even though we all live in the same city, I don't see my brothers and SILs as often as I'd like, so it was good to hang out and catch up.  Wish I had pictures of everyone who was there, hopefully I'll get better at this picture taking thing :)

Sunday, we slept in nice and late!  A little later than planned, whoops, but that's ok.  Got us rested up for our week ahead!  Brandon has quite a week ahead.  He gets home Thursday from traveling for the work week and then flies out to Michigan for work until Saturday :( he won't be south side again until about 7:45 Saturday night.  Sure makes for a looong week when we don't see each other much!  But I have a busy week at school as well so I guess it all works out.  The rest of our Sunday was spent working out, doing laundry, and relaxing. 

Monday is over so only 4 more days this week!  Here's one last picture to put a smile on your face....Benson just trying to earn his keep around here and help with the laundry!  Have a good one!
