And we're off...

First full and busy weekend of summer is now under our belts and there is much, much more to come!

Friday was the "calm" day so to speak, as after work all we did was have dinner over at my parents and then went home and watched two movies. So I guess that was the calm before the storm!

Saturday I got up super early and met Miss Gina for coffee and we sat and chatted for awhile and it was nice to do that. She gave me a wall hanging that she no longer wanted that matches my kitchen decor awesomely, since it has a coffee cup on it. I have kind of been doing a "cafe" theme in my kitchen and dining room, so this fits in quite well. It also has a chalk board so now Nate and I can leave each other notes if we want!

After our coffee date I headed down to LUSH, since I was already most of the way to Ridgedale, and stocked up on some facial care items. It didn't take me too long to pick up the things I needed, so then I stopped on the way home at a fairly new to MN accessory store. Yes, I know, Beth in an accessory store is like letting a bull loose in a china shop. I'll have more about this in a Thrifty Tuesday or Thursday post this week and we'll leave it at that.

Saturday afternoon we headed to a wedding for a guy we graduated high school with. It turned out to be a nice day, which was good since they got married outside. We stayed for the dinner and the first couple of dances and then escaped to have a nightcap at Psycho Suzi's - and finally got to check out the new upstairs bar there, very awesome, live music, we did eventually go sit on the patio for a bit, but upstairs is very fun there.

Sunday we slept in for a little bit and then got up and did our run for the day. After that I went over to help set up the graduation house for our Praise Project director's son. She has no family in the area and had no one else to really help her, so a bunch of us stepped up to help put the whole thing together. It was a long day, but overall went pretty well.

After that was over Nate and I grabbed some Famous Dave's for dinner and watched some more of Mad Men - we're almost done with season two now!

So, we're off and running in what promises to be a crazy, busy summer. I'm thankful for a calm week, since next weekend will be another crazy one. Stay tuned, it'll be an interesting summer, that is for sure!
