Top Ten Tuesday - weekend

Top Ten {Tuesday}

We had a great weekend and here are ten reasons why it was fabulous.

  1. I read an entire book - talk about lazy and staying up too late, but I can't remember the last time I did it and I sooooo enjoyed it! It's the second book in a series I've started that reminds me of Twilight; teenagers, supernaturals, young love, battling all the evils of the world... nothing heavy, just total fluff!
  2. Went to visit some great friends. We're committed to getting together more often this year and that's a good thing! We always share tons of laughs when we get together and this visit was no exception.
  3. Said friends make the most amazing potato salad... it's truly the best in the world and I was thrilled when B made it for our visit!!
  4. I got to bring the leftover potato salad home. Yes, this is most definitely a highlight of the weekend... you just wouldn't understand if you've never tasted this potato salad!!
  5. Baking. I baked lots this weekend and enjoyed it. I even cleaned as I cooked which makes me even happier as there was no gigantic mess when I was done. I made a Boston Cream Cake (which I wasn't impressed with), double batch of chocolate chip cookies, lemon loaf, blueberry lemon loaf, and two cantaloupe loaves with a praline glaze. Most of it's in the freezer now.
  6. Best part of making chocolate chip cookies is getting to eat one fresh out of the oven while it's still warm. Yummmmm
  7. We had a family fun movie night and watched Princess and the Frog.  Love that movie!
  8. Took the fam out for a long walk, almost 5k. Actually, the girls biked and Caelan relaxed in the stroller, but Damian and I walked. It was hot. It felt really good. Except for the horse flies that were attacking us.
  9. Weatherman got the forecast so fantastically wrong. No rain or thunderstorms as predicted!
  10. Relaxing out on the deck in the shelter of mosquito netting enjoying my family and beautiful warm weather. oh and there might have been a nice glass of something cold and refreshing there too...
I think that about sums it up! 
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend too!
