So....the laziness just continued all weekend! Let's see if I can wrap it up for you:
*Steve and I went to the pool all afternoon on Saturday.
*I finished my book The Kite Runner. It was sooo good!! I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good summer read. I had a little bit of a hard time getting into it at first because of the Farsi language and the names. But after a couple of chapters, I was hooked! I liked it so much we rented the movie last night. I never think the movie is as good as the book, though! And I bought A Thousand Splendid Suns, the next book by the same author. I am really looking forward to reading it, too!
*We grilled out hamburgers last night. I made some yummy squash to go with it and Lindy made a big salad like the one you get at Maggiano's with blue cheese, red onion, and bacon in it.
*I played around with my Photo Shop Elements that I got for my birthday.
My goal is to learn how to use that well. I also want to take a photography class! I'm looking to see if there is one I can get into before school starts.
*I got caught up on my magazine reading. This is one I read.
I really wanted to read this article about Barack Obama's faith. I am interested in knowing what he really stands for! There are so many different opinions and ideas about whether he is a Christian or a Muslim. I just want to know the truth!
*Steve had a deacon's meeting after church today, so I went to the mall and used my Nordstrom gift certificate to buy me some new Clinique Happy perfume! I LOVE that perfume. I've been out for a while and I was so excited to get it today. I opened it and sprayed it on right when I got in the car! haha I also browsed around Anthropologie which I love! They have the cutest and funkiest clothes and all kinds of things for your house.
*Tonight Steve's parents asked us over for dinner. Steve's brother Mike is in town, so they love to get together alot while he is here. We grilled out steaks and his mom made a homemade blueberry pie that was to die for!
I have never made a pie from scratch, but she told me how she did it & I am definitely trying it soon!
*Steve's parents just got a Wii. This is Laura trying the Hula Hooping! That is really fun!
You could actually get a lot of excercise doing it!
Tomorrow morning is the Pep Rally for Extreme Makeover. It is at our church! My girls and I are going to Starbucks bright and early and then heading over there. Also, Mark is coming home from Jamaica tomorrow. I can't wait to see him. I haven't talked to him in a week. I can't wait to hear about everything! Please pray for him to be safe on his flight home tomorrow afternoon!
Hope you have a great week! :)
