This weekend was kind of busy. After spending an ungodly amount of time indoors due to illness and the weather I was happy to be out and about this weekend.
We kicked off the weekend with a little family time at the bowling alley
We had some pizza and had a good time with a little family competition
Saturday morning AKA duty called and I headed out to a forum we had regarding Human Trafficking. I think my mouth was open the whole time listening to the statistics. I signed up to volunteer with an agency in the Atlanta area that is working to help girls who want to escape that life. I am going to do a post regarding this issue. Our poor children are getting caught in terrible lives that they don’t have to live. I feel its our duty to help where we can. More to come on that.
Saturday evening I had dinner at Tin Lizzy’s with Bunnie. I love Bunnie, she is just I don’t know. I can’t put my finger on it but she rocks….One time for that margarita and queso that I’ve been craving for months, they were just as good as I needed them to be.
Sunday I went grocery shopping. I am the worse grocery shopper ever. For the past few months my husband has been doing the shopping but because we are down to one car and I had chapter meeting I got up early and took care of my least favorite task.
Shortly after getting all of the groceries in place and cleaning out the refrigerator I was back out the door to chapter meeting. Came home to him cooking dinner. *body rolls* I was in peace and quiet when the Shameless premiere came on.
There. That’s my weekend.
How was yours? Did you grocery shop, clean, sew, read? Do you watch Shameless? Is your week planned out?
This time last year my mind was in a whirlwind. I knew going into 2013 there were two major hurdles ahead of me/us. Number 1 was moving and 2. was becoming an AKA. Both were up in the air and I had no idea how or if either would happen.
My level of faith in 2013 was like no other. We started building a house that we didn’t end up moving in because God blessed us with THE HOUSE that had everything that we needed AND wanted after looking at 1,687,467 houses that didn’t work.
We finally got a Christmas tree.
It was on the agenda but not at the forefront of the minds of the adults in this house. I suppose I was counting the fact that the mantle and the outside decorations were done, however the children were ready to stage a coup if we didn’t get a tree. So get a tree we did.
We got it from Kroger, got it home and in the stand before remembering that all of our Christmas decorations were thrown out with the trash when we moved.
Off to Target.
For my Atlanta area readers:
It’s back but bigger, better and brighter than ever before. Get the entire family into the Christmas spirit by heading to Atlanta Motor Speedway and seeing how over-the-top decorating looks while being able to brag you’ve driven on the famed Atlanta Motor Speedway oval.
