My weekend so far...

Hey there friends!
I was going to start this post with a few lines from the song Zip A Dee Doo Dah but I'll refrain. Man, I love a Monday morning that's also a day off work. The past couple of days have been awesome. Come, I'll show you...


We kicked off the weekend with Friday Night Date Night with our sweet sidekick, Carrie. I was in the mood for a burger and Doug was in the mood for a pool table, so we went to Doc & Eddy's where we enjoyed both. Side note: D&E's is where Doug and I went for our first date. :o)

It's hard to believe that the month of May is almost over and our weather still feels like spring. We're usually deep into triple-digit-temps by this time of year but I'm not complaining! I loved being able to be outside this weekend to enjoy a bit of gardening.


Carrie called me Saturday evening on her way home from her dad's to see if I was up for an impromptu shopping trip. Uhhh...let me think...YES! We headed out to our favorite outlet mall and snagged some great Memorial Day sale items. And it's always fun to ride in Carrie's car and listen to her mix of music...

I loved seeing our baby turtle, Casper, out and about yesterday. I swear she eats none of the food we put out for her so I worry that she's not getting enough. But I watched her for a while yesterday and saw her foraging for bugs and nibbling on dichondra grass. Gotta' love nature.

My original plan for this weekend was to do a whole bunch of sewing. I did spend a little time at my sewing machine yesterday afternoon, but that may be all of the stitching I get done this weekend. It was still pretty awesome, and I did complete the project I'd hoped to finish. 
 
Doug headed north yesterday morning to spend time with his brother and play in the woods {read: shoot his new bow and drink a few brews} so I was solo for the day/evening. Carrie and I went shoe shopping, had lunch, got pedicures, then grabbed a coffee before she brought me back home. This next shot of palo verde trees in bloom was taken in the Starbucks drive through. See what I mean about a mild month of May? Usually it's stinking hot by now and these trees are done blooming. Pretty, huh?





Today's agenda: yoga class with Carrie this morning, banana bread to bake, laundry to be done...maybe I'll pick up a pencil and my sketchbook and go outside...



Today as we celebrate Memorial Day, we'll fly our flag proudly as we remember the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our country. May we all take time to be grateful for their sacrifices for our freedom.

Have a lovely week, my friends.
Zip a dee doo DAH, zip a dee A...Mr. Bluebird's on my shoulder...

Sounds like a pretty awesome weekend so far and it's not over yet for you. Ours almost is though! Back to work for The Mechanic tomorrow, but the children are on Half Term. I have had that tune in my head ever since I did my SIPIDI post yesterday. Enjoy the rest of your bonus day x

Yay for productive sewing and special first date places and long weekends with mild weather.

Funny you make that comment about the weather - it has been so mild here, days on end we haven't needed the fire - unheard of at this time of the year!

Such lovely thoughts for Memorial Day weekend (and all its meanings). Saturday was Clara's last track meet of the season. Yesterday was a relaxing day, and today I had a terrific outdoors day - took the dogs to the beach; helped Clara clean out the chicken coop; weeded; washed the dogs; etc.
