#18 - Weekend Wrap-Up

Happy Monday!  Since Navy Week is over (but you can still link up until midnight!), here's a rare 30x30 outfit that doesn't actually feature anything navy.  Pretty sure it is the first one of the challenge so far.

Anyway, how about a little weekend update?

Friday evening, we went to a cookout for John's department.  We played croquet and I was terrible.  It seemed like it was going to rain all night, but never actually did.  And my hair grew fluffier and fluffier as the night progressed.

Saturday morning, I had a long overdue phone date with one of my sweet friends from high school.  It was so great to catch up with her.  I really need to prioritize keeping in touch with friends!  Then I spent the rest of the day doing random household chores - this pretty much happens every weekend if I don't want my house to spiral into a complete mess.  Saturday evening, we went over to John's parents' house for dinner and games.  We hadn't seen them in forever, so it was fun to catch up!

Sunday we had church, and then did more miscellaneous chores around the house in the afternoon.  After evening service, we had a Sunday school class get-together, which is always a good time.

All in all, it was a pretty good weekend - a nice mix of socializing and productivity.  How was your weekend?

  1. Very cute outfit! Sounds like you had the perfect amount of fun and relaxing this weekend (of course I typed that right before I read your last line)! ;)

  2. I love that leopard scarf! And you gotta love curly hair and the chance of rain :) Puff ball alert!

  3. This is such a cute look! I have very similar items in my closet, so I will definitely have to re-create soon.

  4. I was really confused by why you weren't wearing navy in this outfit, haha. My weekend was great-- we made a somewhat impromptu trip to Michigan :)

  5. You look utterly adorable in this outfit! It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, too! I'm realllly looking forward to this upcoming weekend! I started my job on Monday so I'm feeling a little worn out and ready for a relaxing weekend :) We're taking family photos with my mom's extended family on Saturday and then I'm getting together with one of my new teacher friends, but we have Sunday free, so I'm planning to read basically all day :)

  6. I'm so jealous that you have a leopard scarf! I'm on the hunt for a great one.
