Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Was it relaxing and fun or busy and productive?Ours was good but extremely busy to the point it felt like we never stopped until 6 o'clock Sunday night -  and we still didn't get everything finished.  *sigh*

Weekend Highlights include:

 -- Friday night we went to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner and drinks - Sharky's. We sat at the bar (a first for us) and we got better service than we ever have, plus we were able to watch a couple of the games on the big screen while enjoying conversation and relaxing - SCORE!

-- Saturday morning we took my husband's truck to be serviced, went to breakfast and started house hunting. In between house hunting, we ran home and gathered our donations and took them to be dropped off before doing more shopping and house hunting. The service on my husband's truck took over 5 hours - which was ABSURD! (They had over 100 vehicles there that morning but we were in the first 20 and it shouldn't have taken that long to rotate tires and fill the fluids - it's a new truck for cripes sake!) Luckily, we live close enough to where the truck was being serviced that we could run home in between our errands while waiting for the call.  After our errands, the truck service dibacle and house hunting, my husband was feeling ill and extremely tired, so we ran and picked up dinner and took it home, ate and then laid down and caught up on the dvr and just relaxed.

-- Sunday morning I got up and started cooking breakfast, which then turned into cleaning out my refrigerator and freezer (which was a chore in itself and took a couple of hours).  We decided after that, to get cleaned up and run a few errands and get some new sheets. Ahhh... there is nothing better than NEW SHEETS - am I right, ladies?! :)  I don't know about you - but our absolute faves are the Sateen Cotton.  They are SO super soft and the more you wash them, the softer they get.  We usually buy the high thread count (like 800 or 1000), but they didn't have them this time around, so we purchased the 400 thread count and we will see how they do.  So far, so good.  The best part is that Kohl's was having a sale on them and instead of paying the $120 for them, they rang up $50! WHOOP WHOOP!!!  Here are the ones we bought:

Afterwards our desktop computer decided after 6 years to go out, so we ran to Best Buy and bought a new one and that in itself turned into a HUGE ordeal. They have changed computers so much since we purchased our last one 6 years ago that it literally took me over 3 hours to get it put together and set up. Then when I thought I was finished, I realized that the monitor we have wouldn't hook up to the new computer - OMG I thought I was going to scream.  Apparently that had changed too and I had to make another trip back to Best Buy to get an adapter so that I didn't have to buy an entirely new monitor for it! 

All in all, a pretty good weekend, though super busy.  I hate when you're so busy constantly that the weekend just flies by.  But, on a good note, this coming weekend is a 3 day weekend for me - thank you bank job! :)  So what about you? What fun things did you do this weekend? I can't wait to hear all about it!  Thanks for stopping by to say hello.  

Linking up with these pretties today.  You can link up here or here if you'd like to play along:

Lots of love and hugs,

  2. Sometimes I really enjoy eating dinner at the bar! The bartenders are normally relaly friendly and you have front row seat to the games!

  3. My weekend was a mix of relaxing and productivity. I went for a couple of walks, wrote out thank you cards, vacuumed, did dishes & emptied the dishwasher, watched some movies, went food shopping, and did some planning in my planner.

    It sounds like you got a lot done this weekend! :)

  4. Hahaha. Getting a new computer is the worst. But surprisingly, Mac computers are pretty easy to set up. I got a new macbook for christmas and it was done in like 5 mins. But it did take me forever (and a walkthrough online) to change to the user name.
