Grateful Heart || Weekending

What a fantastic weekend!  I love the kind that are full but relaxing, productive and laid-back, with plenty of time at home and lots of time outside having fun.  That's exactly what our weekend was, and I'm so grateful:

+ Friday night at home, time spent with family
+ Saturday garage sale (eh)
+ unpacking more boxes, feeling more settled each and every day (yes, it's taking us FOREVER to unpack.  We've moved into a much smaller house, so we're taking our time figuring out what to get rid of, what we can't part with, etc.  We're almost done, and it feels like home...but it's been a process!)
+ errands
+ Saturday night out with the girls!  Always a favorite time.
+ Sunday morning trying out a new church.  This was super successful!  SO grateful!
+ Sunday nap
+ Sunday afternoon BEACH time!  Claire exhausted herself boogie boarding some pretty big waves and Jude ate his weight in sand and seaweed.  No one got burned, and everyone fell asleep early... success!
+ Sunday evening family movie time...watching HOME.  We saw it at the drive-in, but forgot so much of the plot and story line.  Such a cute movie...we highly recommend!

Yes, it was the perfect weekend.  I'm feeling refreshed and ready to face a new week (even though I have one more day of my weekend...YAY!!).  And...super grateful that I'll be flying to Indianapolis early Thursday morning to attend the Influence Conference.  And even MORE grateful that I'll be rooming with Emily and Rebecca...can't wait to meet and hug these girls! What about you?  What are you grateful for today?

Oh it's my favorite thing to do! One of the reasons I love that it stays so hot in San Diego through October! Hope you had a great weekend. :)

Those kinds of weekends are the absolute best! I'm BEYOND jealous that you get to room with Em and Rebecca - give them big hugs for me!

So how did the garage sale go, exactly?! LOVE that you found a church you like!! SEE YOU SOON! :)

Amy @ Set Free said...

I know...I can't wait to hug those girls IRL. It's going to be so fun!

Eh. I hate garage sales. And honestly, we've had more luck on Craigslist. It was in the mid 90's with lots of humidity on Saturday, too, so I think it kept people away. And YES!! to the church! We met the pastor a couple months ago because we went to look at his house for rent. When we left, we knew the house wouldn't work, but Steve said like 3 times, "I don;t think we were supposed to meet him because of the house. I think there's going to be more to it." Annnndd...he was right!
