Our weekend in an instagram...

I love any day that starts with "S"...

Earn the respect of others by having the audacity to be yourself. #lifelessons

{Friday} evening the Mr and I had a date night at Johnny Rays. Before we moved here I would come visit him during while he was working here and we would enjoy dates at Johnny Rays. It reminds me of a mom and pops diner, but the food is BBQ, and other yummies! We shared some fried pickles for an appetizer, and then he had wings and cheese fries while I enjoyed BBQ chicken nachos! YUM!

After we got home from our dinner date, we caught up on American Idol from the DVR. And wow, what's the deal with Nicki? If she's going to be this way all season, then we just might not continue watching. But from what I saw... there is going to be some great talent this year. However, we always love the ones who really think they can sing, but wow, they really can't carry a tune.

Before we headed to bed, I changed my nail color. And this time I decided to forgo the usual nail colors I use, and add a little sparkle (It's Bouquet With Me) over (Already Famous) for the weekend! 

{Saturday} morning we couldn't sleep in. Not because we didn't want to, cause I would have given anything to be able to sleep past 6:30! So we got on up and I made the Mr's favorite breakfast... cheesy browns (hash browns smothered with cheese) and pigs in a blanket. And I know y'all are jealous of these fancy paper plates! ;)

After breakfast, we got hard at it working on projects around the house. You could say that the cleaning fairy and the project fairy visited us, but I'll just say it was me and the Mr. We got new front porch lights for Christmas from Papaw and Mrs. Betty, and the Mr put them up, and replaced our doorbell. =)

I had found a recipe over on Stephanie's blog for Hot Sausage Dip, and we decided to try it out for an afternoon snack. (No lunch due to a big breakfast, and an upcoming bigger dinner!)

After our snack, we went out to run a few errands. His preferred place to shop: Lowes. My preferred place to shop: Target! Ha! We both got what we wanted while we were out!

OH and if you've never had a shake from Steak N Shake. GET ONE! We both got chocolate ones, but they have a red velvet that I'm thinking I'll need to try next! =)

That evening, I made my homemade lasagna. One word... YUM!

{Sunday} morning we actually slept in. Of course, I was medicated due to a tooth ache. Errrr!!!! And yes, it's one of the ones they worked on last Wednesday. Guess I'll be calling the dentist first thing this morning. =(

Once we did get out of bed, I did make our usual cinnamon roll breakfast of champions. And then I curled right back up in the recliner. It was nice to sit and look around at a clean house! 

Unfortunately, I had ironed waiting on me for the afternoon. Can't have the Mr going to work not looking professional.

And the weather felt like a spring day, so we decided to make the most of it and enjoy grilling outside on the deck. Yay for burgers and homemade french fries.

Of course, Bravo kept us entertained throughout the evening with reality TV, and then it was early to bed for us.

How was your weekend? Ready to get this work week started? I pray it's a good week for us all!

BTW... we are excited about our meal plan for this week!!
