Where’d the Weekend Go? #1

What a summer it has been so far! I think Jesse and I have some sort of plans for almost every weekend until the fall! We love to be busy and go out and do things, especially during the summer, so for the summer I’ll be turning Mondays into weekend recaps of all our fun activities. We have a long list of things to do around the house, and we’ll do a lot this summer, but probably not as much as usual. Partly because of the business of summer and partly because Jesse’s work is closing on Mondays for budget reasons. These days wont be paid, so our income will be lower for the next few months. Since the blog will be affected, because we wont be able to do as many projects, I told Jesse he needs to finish up some posts he’s been working on and try new recipes for me to write about. After all, I’ll be working while he’s at home. 😉

This weekend was fun, it got off to an interesting start when our work lost Internet for most of the day. We’re a web company, so it’s hard to get things done without Internet. Good news though, we got off an hour early! Jesse and I used that time to go play tennis together, it’s our summer couples activity and it’s a blast. We suck but it’s fun and it’s exercise.tennis meme

Then we packed up and headed to Williamsburg to spend the weekend with my Nana. She is my favorite person in the whole world and I really treasure our time together and had fun cooking breakfast with her on Saturday morning.cooking with nana

Saturday consisted of us watching the Office together (we’re going back and watching from beginning to end) and playing some more tennis. We then hit up Old Navy because they’re having a 50% off sale on shorts and I had a gift card. I’m in this weird spot where I’ve lost almost 10 lbs. since last summer, but I’m still 5 lbs. heavier than I was 2 summers ago (and I think it’s all in my butt/hips) so NONE of my shorts fit me. Now I have shorts that fit me and are age appropriate (Good bye college cut-offs!) Jesse also decided that he needed new clothes and that he wants to make his wardrobe more adult and trendy. Then the clouds parted and the angels sang Hallelujah. I’ve only bee working on convincing him of that for the past 5 years! 😉

We ended the night with wine and Settlers of Catan with friends. We do this a lot. I have like 10 Settlers posts on Instagram. settlers and wine

Yesterday we spent some time with my family for Father’s Day and did some clothes purging and filled a giant trash bag of clothes to take to Goodwill. We also realized that we’ve staffed a lot of youth camps and events in the past 10 years. I’m hoping to turn all of these shirts into an awesome quilt. Any of you quilting masters ever done a t-shirt quilt before?photo (2)

I rounded out the evening last night by leaving Jesse at home and going to a blogger get together for Richmond bloggers. My buddy Samantha at Designer in Teal put together an outing to a new Mexican restaurant and I got to meet a bunch of new ladies. Read a bit about that over on the VA Bloggers sitevirginia-blogger-meet-up-at-chuys

How was your weekend? Any new experiences or fun activities? Whose going to hit up that Old Navy sale?

  1. It was so fun hanging out last night!!! 🙂 I was just telling Lindsay how I want to try playing tennis. I’m horrible, but we have tennis courts so close to our apartment, I feel like I need to learn haha.

  2. Have fun on your journey through The Office! We’ve rewatched it beginning to end a few times (it’s our favourite show and often have it on as background) and I never cry any less at the wedding!

    I hope Jesse’s reduced working hours turn out to be a blessing. Lots of love. xx

  3. Jealous of the meetup! And yes, I hope you guys are able to enjoy having Jesse around the house a day longer than usual despite the lower income. He can get stuff done while you work!

  4. Mike and I will probably watch the Office from beginning to end again once the last season comes out on DVD. That was “our show” when we first started dating!

    Who’s the guy photobombing the VA bloggers!? Haha.

  5. I feel like we’re in the same boat with the furlough and the shorts thing (I either think I look too grandma-ish or like I’m trying to relive my high school years).

    Anyway, that meet up sounds awesome! It makes me think I should look into a New York meet up!

  6. “Jesse also decided that he needed new clothes and that he wants to make his wardrobe more adult and trendy.”

    *Falls over*

    Wait, what? I’m so curious now. You will post pictures of the transformation right?

  7. My summer goal is to buy new shorts. I am in desperate need of some. Maybe I will go check out that Old Navy sale.

  8. You’re a busy bee! We need to get out more and make more Lynchburg friends…it gets awful quiet out here. I can’t wait to do a t-shirt quilt with our camp/YEC shirts either! I’m thinking this fall might be the time to do it.

  9. Wow, you guys did a lot in one weekend! Kyle and I also play tennis, but it’s our winter sport because it’s too hot to play in the summer, and the weather is nice most days of the winter, so it works out pretty good, then it’s hitting the waves in the summer 🙂

    Wow, that is a lot of tshirts you guys have accumulated over the years! Good luck on that quilt (I haven’t made a quilt, not to mention a t-shirt quilt, so I don’t have any pointers…)

    p.s. the bachelorette… I don’t know why but I can’t stop watching it, lol! Got any favorites for Des yet?

  10. The tennis thing is such a good idea… I’m wondering where we might have some rackets stored away! I remember it being fun, especially if we nabbed a court away from the pro players lol.

  11. Sounds like you guys have been busy! I love tennis, but I haven’t played in years…I wish Kevin played!
    Can’t wait to see if you make a quilt out of the shirts!

  12. That’s awesome you guys have a VA bloggers get-together! How fun! And wow that’s a lot of t-shirts, but good for you guys for doing what you love!!

  13. Loved this post! I am so jealous you were able to get together with fellow bloggers. How much fun! I love playing tennis. I wish I were any good at it but I certainly do love trying :). I can’t wait to see those tee shirts turned into a quilt!
