The Weekends Almost Over!

Why does it seem that weekends go so fast?

Friday Night:

Joel made us a surprise visit for the weekend! It's always great to have him home... Only 3 more weeks and he'll be home for the summer! This year has really flown by! Only 1 more semester and he'll be finished with college!

Saturday:

Picked up Vickie early in the morning to head to Pennsylvania to meet Linda & Stacie, (2 of the great girls I talk with on GLU). Had a great lunch at Old Mexico....Yes Kelley, I did have Mexican!

Then off we went to the stores around Cabela's. We had fun shoppping for new body lotions and body sprays. We had fragrance sprayed up our arms, wrists, tops and palms of our hands. By the time we were done we couldn't tell one from the other!

My choice was Philophys Amazing Grace. I loved it.... Erica got me the lotion last week, so of course I had to purchase the spray.

Sunday:

The morning started off taking my mom to church. Then home to make dinner for Joel before he headed back to college. Of course what I had in mind and the recipe he found for me to make were'nt the same. But hey Joel, when you come home they'll be a surprise waiting when you come the next time!

I chose to make: Nothing fancy just good!
