Lovely Day

It's so close to summer I can taste it! Today has just been one of those perfect, warm, sunny days.

Last night we had a little get-together at our house for the Cavs game. It was fun (even though they lost by 1 point). My best friend, Rachel, came over. For once I wasn't the only girl there and I loved it! Rachel just finished nursing school, so she has some spare time again. I couldn't be happier!

Rachel and I are also cousins and neighbors. We're a lot different, but we think alike. Take last night for example. I decided to make some chocolate, peanut butter brownies at the last minute. When Rachel walked through our door, what did she have in her hands? Chocolate, peanut butter brownies (in the shape of cupcakes). We laughed at the coincidence. Luckily the guys pretty much devoured all of them anyway. We somehow end up doing things like this a lot. (dressing alike, getting the same haircut, having the same ideas, etc).
Tonight is going to be a special night. Luke and I have not had a date night, just the two of us, in MONTHS. Not an actual, planned ahead, just for fun, date night. We have kind of been doing our own things lately, and the busy-ness of life has been overwhelming. We decided we had to spend some quality time together this week! I'm so looking forward to it :-) And the whole date should only cost $2!! That's because Luke got a gift certificate to Olive Garden for his birthday so that's where we're going for dinner. Then right after that we're going to the dollar theater to see"Knowing." We may also shop a little bit since my mom's birthday is coming up. Sometimes I get so focused on the house and the things I need to get done FOR my husband, that I forget that it's probably more important to spend time WITH him. I really can't wait until tonight :-)

I keep forgetting that this weekend is Memorial Day weekend, but everytime I remember, I get a big smile across my face. Yay for a 3 day weekend! The whole town of Damascus is red, white, and blue right now. I should really take a walk later and take some pictures, because it's just too darn cute ;-) (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE living in the tiniest town you could imagine??) We don't have plans for Memorial Day yet, but hopefully some of our families or friends will have a get-together! It's supposed to be sunny and 75 degrees and I'm ready for some burgers, baked beans, and potato salad ;-)

Well I should hopefully have some fun posts after this weekend! Tonight is our date night (although not technically the weekend yet). Then tomorrow night is another Cavs game, Saturday my parents get home from Myrtle Beach, and Luke and I might be taking a day trip to Pittsburgh to see his little sister in a volleyball tournament. And Sunday night a bunch of us are headed to Cleveland for the Cavs watch party at The Q! Should be fun to fun to watch the game with thousands of fans for free! And Monday is Memorial Day. It feels like the first weekend of summer, although school isn't quite out yet :-)

Here's to long weekends, day trips, and date nights :-D


  1. That's funny about the brownies! Enjoy your night!!

  2. Have fun on your date night! Those times with husbands are so important! Good for you for making it important!

  3. I second that last thought! You'll have to let me know what you think of "Knowing", I'm kind of curious to see it.

  4. Enjoy your date night and weekend. Sounds like great fun. Blessings, SusanD

  5. Chocolate peanut butter brownies sound devine!!
