Hello lovelies! Today I am going to be sharing something a little different with you: an inside look into my weekend! This weekend was extra special because it was Mother’s Day (and my mom is the greatest)- so I am SUPER EXCITED to tell you all about it!
Let’s get into it:
Technically Thursday isn’t a weekend day, but I added it to this post because I had a lot of fun anyways! Thursday morning I woke up at 8AM to go to the gym with Troy. We go to the gym 3 days a week. We had a really nice workout, and then we came back to my house and had lunch outside on the back patio. After that I showered and got ready for work. I was just working a half day on Thursday, which for me is 12PM-4PM. After work I went to my best friend Katie’s house. We hung out for a little bit, went to the mall, and then decided to go get ICE CREAM!!! Ice cream is my guilty pleasure. I got the peanut butter cup flavor from Graters. We sat outside on patio and enjoyed the weather, our ice cream, and each other’s company. When we got back to her house, her mom needed to run some errands to get ready for her little brother’s high school graduation party- so we went with her! We went to the dollar tree and then to Katie’s grandparent’s house. I always enjoy time spend with my friends.
On Friday I worked until 4PM, and then after that I went to Troy’s house. Troy and I made spaghetti for dinner for the whole family! I was a bit worried because that was the first time we had made spaghetti together, but it was really good! While we ate our delicious masterpiece, we cuddled and caught up on all the shows we had recorded throughout the week. It was a really relaxing night at home.
On Saturday, I went to my brother and sister in law’s house. We were going shopping for our mom’s Mother’s Day gift and my dad’s birthday gift (his birthday was the 12th, so we celebrated everything on Sunday). We got gift cards for dad and flowers for mom, I also picked up flowers for Troy’s mom as well! It was SUCH a long process picking out which flowers we wanted to get (we were getting a variety- potted ones and the ones you can plant). We were picky about it, but in the end it was worth it because my mom loved them so much! Once we had gathered all the gifts, the three of us went to lunch together. I love spending time with my siblings.
After lunch, I went over to Troy’s and we got ready for our big putt putt tournament! We had a group of 12 friends who decided to make a putt putt tournament that was as serious as a golfing tournament (just for laughs). We really did take it seriously, though! We dressed up nicely, before we played we stood with our hands over our hearts as someone played the national anthem on a speaker, and we even had a trophy for the winner! Troy ended up winning the tournament, and I placed 7th out of 12. Which I didn’t think was bad considering I was the only girl playing. Mine and Troy’s first putts were back-to-back holes in one! We played 36 holes of putt putt and it was SO hot, but we had a really fun time. After the tournament Troy took me to get cold stone (I told you guys, I really like ice cream) and I got the flavor birthday cake remix… which is my all time favorite ice cream ever.
Troy went to hangout with his friends some more that evening, and I went home and went to bed. I was exhausted!
This morning my parents and Troy and I went to early service at church. The service was all about being a Godly woman, which really spoke to me. After church, Troy and I went to Sunday School. When we left church we got some McDonald’s for Troy, to hold him over until we ate lunch with the family (nobody likes being hangry). We went back to my house for a bit and hung out with my mom, and then my whole family met at my brother and sister in law’s house. We gave birthday/Mother’s Day gifts, and we had lunch together.
When we finished up with my family we went to Troy’s house and spent some time with his family. I’m not too sure the exact time that the festivities ended today, because Troy and I fell asleep! We must have been really tired from all the excitement!
Now I’m back home… in my bed… writing this blog. I had a really great weekend. I’m glad I got to share it with all of you.
How did you all celebrate your Mother’s Day weekend?!
P.S. Happy Mother’s Day to the most beautiful person I know. You are everything I strive to be. God has truly given me more than I deserve. I have the best mother and friend that I could ever ask for. I love you, mom… as constant as the stars above.
