Well this was just such a fun weekend! Even if I could get a redo I don’t think I would change a thing.
Amy was home already when I got home from work on Friday. We made dinner and then just hung out for the evening. Scout was all about the hugs.
Gary and I took Scout for a walk Saturday morning and then putzed around the house until Amy got up. Then she and I ran some errands which included getting her a new phone.
She found a new work space in the kitchen.
It got cloudy and rainy in the afternoon so Gary and I (and Scout) napped while Amy worked out. Glad someone is using that new fitness room!
Then Megan called and we FaceTime’d. It’s not the best quality, or the best picture of Gary and Amy (they are clearly more interested in what Megan is saying than I am) but I was clearly enjoying myself.
Then we all got dressed and went downtown for dinner and to watch the Wild home opener at Tom Reid’s Hockey City Pub.
Gary and I had our new favorite beverages – Maker’s and Ginger Ale.
Amy had a “salad” and Gary and I split a burger, so we all agreed we could split a dessert. Beaver Tails. Oh My Word.
We left after the second period and watched the third at home. It was such a fun night!
And then on Sunday, Amanda came over to spend the day with us. She brought her new baby carrier and we made her try it out (and I had to get a picture!). Thank’s for being a good sport, Amanda.
She, Amy and I spent some quality time at Tires Plus and Whole Foods, then picked up Sharel’s for lunch. We visited and worked on our jigsaw puzzle, and then I tried out a new recipe for Butternut Squash Soup. Here the veggies are ready to roast in the oven.
Aaaaand, I forgot to take a picture of the finished soup. And, it’s all gone. We ate some for dinner, Amanda took some home with her, and the rest went to Kathy and her mom. It was yummy, but Amanda and I agreed it would be even better with crispy bacon and candied walnuts.
Both girls left around 5:00 and Gary and I spent the rest of the evening getting ready for the week ahead. For some reason, I had migraines Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday night, so I was really happy it didn’t come back again on Sunday. But even that didn’t take away any of the joy I felt spending time with Gary and the girls.
It’s going to be a short but busy week for me. Amanda and I are heading down to Iowa on Friday for Family Weekend, so I’m looking forward to another weekend full of girl time!
