Weekend Recap and a little anticipation...

Good evening everyone!  I am not ready for the weekend to come to an end.  It's hard to get back in the groove on Mondays.  
I am just thankful I have a job to go to and have a little one who is so excited to go to school everyday.  I shouldn't complain.  

We had a good weekend.  This was hubby's on call week which always ends with him working the weekend.  I don't like him working on Saturday's and especially on Sundays as he cannot join us at church.  

On Saturday, Darbee and I had planned a mommy-Darbee date.  Nothing special, just shopping and being together.  First, we slept late and snuggled.
Someone wanted to be a sleepy head and be lazy.  I have to admit, I enjoyed it.  I layed in bed and surfed the internet on my ipad and started a good book.  

Once she was up and ready, we decided just to head to an early lunch.  She had a Book-It coupon from Pizza Hut for a free pizza so we decided to go there.  Did you ever participate in the Book-It program?  I did as a kid and remember being so excited to go get my free pizza and get a sticker on my button.  They were out of buttons, but we enjoyed a good lunch.

After lunch, we browsed around several thrift shops and a craft store.  I got a hair cut and then I treated her to frozen yogurt.

We love this place called The Mix.  They have a ton of different flavors of frozen yogurt to choose from and a buffet type bar of toppings.  You fix what you want and it is priced based on the weight.  Darbee loves it.  It was yummy!

We had a great day. I so enjoy just being together with my girl.

Today was church.  Darbee has started a new Sunday school class and she LOVES it.  She has several little girl friends in there and they have a good time.  She was so anxious to go this morning.  We enjoyed a good service and then lunch with Nana and Papa afterward.

This afternoon, our local weather started mentioning the "S" word.  Yes, the winter "s" word, SNOW!
Just the mention of that here in the south sends everyone in a panic and all of the school kids hoping for closed schools.  (smile)
Look at this:
We are just barely in the watch, but we are in it.  That's all that matters right?  Hehe..
I am crossing my fingers and toes and hoping for a snow day!  

I hope all of you have had a great weekend!

Until next time....


  1. my son used to do book-it he loved the free pizza too!
    that asleep photo is very cute!
    good for you having a day out!

    hope you get snow, you can have all of ours.
    we still have over 6" in the drive way, all turned to ice because of recent temps. now 3 more days of singe digits headed our way. I still love snow, even after all this.
    nothing like a snow day to a kid!
    even us big kids! grin!

  2. It looks like y'all had a great day. We are -12 here with impassable roads so church was canceled and now school. This has been a very rough winter for us. Stay warm and cozy :)

  3. Sounds like you had a perfect weekend. I do not care the S word and consider it one of "those" four letter words!(ugly)lol Loved her wearing the scarf in the picture. Our little fashionista.

  4. I so love to see pictures of Darbee, so glad you had a great weekend, hope she gets a 'S' day :o)

    have a wonderful week

  5. What a fun day! I heard that winter was heading south. I remember living in North Carolina and the panic that would set it. Pretty funny for this Indiana girl to watch. :) Hope you get a snow day... all kids should experience that joy!

  6. We love our girl days out too...and snuggling in bed being lazy
    .I hate to wish winter on anyone however Princess and I would love for sweet Darbee and her Nanna to have a snow day then they could giggle and play in it...no school here today again as its bitter cold...sending lots of hugs and love from Ohio...LIL Raggedy

  7. Well I am not a school kid but I am so excited too. Want snow so bad. I do wonder why as I hVe to be careful not to fall walking on dry ground. (hehe). I will be one waiting in long lines at the grocery store to get that special comfort,snow day food. Such fun. Remember how we did that when you were a kid and still home? Love ya

  8. Little Darby looks so sweet wrapped up sleeping.
    It sure sounds like you had a fun girl day out!
    I hope you got your snow. I would sure send mine down if \I

  9. Sunday sleep in sounds good..I should have done that! I am praying that you get some snow. We had another 6 inches over the weekend. Wind chills tomorrow are going down to 30 below, si I brought my computer home and will be working from home tomorrow. Janice

  10. It looks and sounds like you both has a great girls day out.
    I would send you the snow that we have if I could. It is so bitter cold here...tomorrow it will feel like -28 with the wind chill. So I'm having a stay inside day with a blanket and 2 puppies on my lap.

  11. We have the mention of an inch or two of snow here and schools are closing early. It sounds like you had a wonderful date.

  12. Thanks for welcoming me back to blogging. I am looking forward to better things. Loved seeing your snow pics on facebook! It has shut our little town down!
