Fully recharged.

I can't even explain how amazing this extra-long weekend was! We managed to make it to the gym ALL 3 days (hollaaa!) and spent most of our time doing whatever the heck we wanted! It was glorious.

Friday evening was supposed to be spent at my old High School watching my brother play drumline at half-time...but there was a huge storm blowing through that ended up canceling the game, so we grabbed wings at a local joint instead! Saturday after the gym, we grabbed lunch at Olive Garden (thanks to past clients who treated us with a couple gift cards!!!) and saw No Escape at the theatre. O-M-G. My heart was pounding the WHOLE time and it was amazing! I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes action flicks!
and NO, we didn't sneak this candy into the theatre.....

We came home, ordered some pizza and BUILT A FORT! We've been talking about doing this for a while and finally figured out how to make it happen... it was pretty epic.

We accidentally fell asleep under it, and decided to stay out there. Sure, it wasn't the most comfortable night in the world, but we were so proud of our little fort we wanted to make the most of it!

Sunday morning our church closed its doors and had a "Rise and Build" day! Our whole church broke out into about 8 or 9 groups and served our community in various ways (serving meals, painting homes, doing yard work for elderly, making stockings for Christmas, etc.)! It always feels good to give back.



Sunday night after a LONG, much needed nap...we went to our favorite supermarket, Jungle Jims (I know you're jealous, Becky), and grabbed a whole bunch of sushi and decided to have ourselves another movie night in - of course, we went with another action flick.

Monday morning we got in a good workout and grabbed groceries all before the clock hit noon! When we got home, we cleaned up and organized stuff to get ready to spend most of this our evenings this week packing! Our move day is so soon!!! I honestly needed a weekend like this, free of ANY real obligations, to just focus on Caleb, to focus on fun, and to really just relax. I hope everyone had a great time, too!!!! Now, who's ready for Fall!?!?!

  3. So jealous of your fort! I want to do that so bad! Sounds like a great weekend and way to go on making it to the gym every day! I can never even do that on a regular weekend let alone a long one.
