R & R

Today we were all in church together for the first time in a really long time. It was nice to take up just about an entire row with our whole family!

After church we had lunch at La Unica. I know you probably think we eat there constantly. That's because we do!! We love it and it's cheap! :)

This afternoon, I got some cleaning and laundry done and then I took a nap. I can't seem to get enough sleep this weekend for some reason. It is just so great being a little bit lazy. Rocky loves to hang out with me on our bed. Isn't he cute?

Sunday afternoons are just the best for napping!

Tonight I made a blueberry pie like Steve's mom showed me! Mine isn't nearly as pretty as hers, but it still tastes good!

I am finally making my way through The Shack. It is really different than I expected! I will let you know what I think after I get to the end. I just haven't had much time to read lately. Our book club is this Wednesday night, but I won't be able to go since it is the same night as our Open House. The next book we are reading is The Friday Night Knitting Club.

Has anyone read this one?

I have two Netflix movies that have been sitting unopened now for several weeks. I am planning on watching at least one of them tonight. I have Vantage Point and The Great Debaters. We are grilling hamburgers for dinner, then I have a date with my couch and a pillow!


  1. Betsy, I would love to see a shot of your entire bedroom. I have that exact same fabric on my bed!! Too Cool.

    ...and I am never the 1st commenter. Wow.

  2. I love a Sunday nap... of course, all that Mexican food I eat for lunch is like a drug... knocks me right out.

    Our family (all 13 of us) used to take up the whole front pew each Sunday. Good memories!

  3. What a great weekend!!! Sounds like fun! I loved Vantage point, you'll have to tell me what you think of it! I am enjoying this long weekend, and like you, can't seem to get enough sleep... I think it's being back in school... I keep wanting to go to sleep early and I keep waking up at the crack of dawn! Ha! Enjoy your Monday off girl, I know you've earned it!

  4. Ahhh! Rocky is such a sweet boy! We just love our lil' dog, too.

  5. I love a little (okay a lot :0) of R & R in our lives.

    We've had so much fun this weekend, I'm so glad you did too!!

    Let me know what you think of "The Shack". It was my first summer read!!

    Have a GREAT week, Dawn

  6. Hi Betsy. I just finished reading The Friday Night Knitting Club. I liked it, but it wasn't my favorite book ever. Tell us what you think after you finish.

    I liked Vantage Point too, but was surprised by it's format. You'll know what I'm talking about after you read it.

    Hope you've enjoyed your Labor Day!

  7. Betsy...hey that was me commenting above. I forgot to log in and commented under my husband's sign-in. SORRY!


  8. I wouldn't waste your time with Vantage Point. Derek and I didn't care for it at all. I REALLY want to see the Great Debaters.

    I'm with you. Nothing like a Sunday afternoon nap. We NEVER get those anymore with these two kiddos. Maybe when they go to college. Ha!

  9. Glad you had your children home this weekend. I'm still only half way thru The Shack. For some reason, I've gotten into other books. I need to finish it though.

    Oh and Sunday afternoon naps are the BEST!

    Have a great week!

  10. I hope that your Monday off was everything you hoped it would be ;)! You deserve the relaxation!!!

  11. I am glad you all had a nice weekend!

  12. what a fun relaxing weekend you deserve after all you've had to do over the past month!! Have a great week! ttys

  13. I'm so glad you are getting caught up on your rest! You've been busy! I'm glad you had a great family weekend.

    I just discussed The Shack with my aunt (I haven't read it). I'm anxious to know what you think about it.


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! I love reading them all! :)
