Weekends and Family

September 23, 2013

It really was a great Family filled weekend!

Mike and I enjoyed dinner with our son and daughter-in-law on Friday night.

We spent Saturday morning watching our grandson play Flag Football.

I enjoyed Saturday afternoon at my dad’s house getting ready for the upcoming parade.

Late on Sunday afternoon, Mike and I took a drive and ended up at Mike’s parents where we had a great visit on the deck enjoying the most gorgeous day outside, then they took us to dinner!! Spontaneous days can really be awesome!

I just had a great visit on the phone with Tess, and my weekend now feels complete!

i hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!

I’ve got some painting to do today, so here are yesterday’s eats!!



Snack – To Go!!




Dinner at Longhorn


I ordered a Dry Baked Sweet Potato, and it came with a ball of butter covered in cinnamon sugar on the side!! I had planned to only eat 1/2 of the potato, which I did, but I put a little of that mixture on the second half and gave it a taste. HOLY HECK that was good!! Just a taste though.
