I always expect my life to calm/slow down. I think to myself “There’s no way my life can get more hectic than this” yet each week proves that theory incorrect. Although I truly do enjoy everything I do, I am looking forward to a weekend without a calendared plan every hour of the day. Hopefully, that will come somewhat soon…
This weekend truly just FLEW by. I think that’s what being busy does. Before I know it, it’s Sunday evening and I am preparing for another week ahead of me.
To start out our weekend, on Friday, one of my greatest friends Maryanne got engaged! Watching engagements are always so special to me and I am so THRILLED that she and Jeff found each other. And how stunning is that ring?! March 18th can’t come sooner!
I was on a constant adventure all weekend long to gather 60 pumpkins for a work event I have this week. Let me tell you, it is quite difficult to find a clean, white, perfectly shaped pumpkin haha! I spent a couple hours this evening cleaning them off with steel wool so hopefully they’ll all work. Only 10 more to gather before Tuesday! Anywhere you think I should look?
We also began a weeklong babysitting job Saturday morning. The house we are staying at has the most INCREDIBLE Halloween decorations! I need to step up my game big time.
Also, am I the only one that loves getting holiday decorations the day AFTER the holiday? Everything is on sale haha! However, it is so difficult for me to wait a year to use the decorations ?
While Will went to the U game on Saturday night I decided to double up our babysitting duties. Wait, actually, I tripled them. So yes.. that was fun ?
The majority of Sunday was spent preparing my Relief Society lesson. It was on being perfectly honest which is always a wonderful reminder.
I feel like as soon as my lesson is over my weekend truly “begins”. Which is at 4pm on Sunday haha.
We had Eliza and Lu over for dinner since Eliza has her baby TOMORROW!!!! I can’t believe I am going to have another niece so soon. So if you think I am annoying now, I can’t promise I’ll be any better come Monday.
We are still soaking up the warm(ish) days and evenings over here. Fall seriously is one of the most magical times of the year! Hikes, football, pumpkin flavored everything and changing leaves.. what more could you ever ask for?
After my walk with Will tonight I can’t wait to finish the book I am reading (Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg. SO good!).
Here’s to another week.
Hope your weekend was GREAT!! ?
