This past weekend is the first weekend since Easter that I got to spend two solid days with my husband. He works so hard to provide us with the best life possible and I am so very grateful that he is able to do so. But I am also grateful for his much deserved (and needed) weekend off. Friday I was busy setting up the little pool we purchased Thursday evening. It was harder than I expected it to be, and I discovered that our back yard isn't as flat as I imagined it was. After three attempts and a few hours of frustrated sighs at the instructions and yelling at the ground for being uneven, I finally found the perfect spot. I wanted it to be all set up and ready, so when Hubs got home he could just relax and enjoy our new summer toy.
We spent much of Saturday lounging in our giant blue blow-up bathtub pool in the middle of our back yard sipping vodka cranberries out of plastic tumblers with straws. I got a little color and he got a little crispy (oops). Saturday also happened to be exactly two months since we got married. Steak and mashed potatoes were in order to celebrate.
Sunday I got right up to try and knock some studying out before we made the trip up to Jefferson City for the afternoon, which gave Hubs some quality time with his PS3, #bromance. We had the mouth-orgasm that is Chipotle for lunch to fuel our afternoon shopping adventures. Random amazingness from Dollar Tree, new sneakers for me, some work clothes for him, and an iPad mini later we were on our way back to the air conditioning at home.
This weekend was pretty awesome. I have so much to be grateful for. My cup runneth over.
What are you grateful for?
