MIMM #18 {Easy Like A Sunday Morning}

Hi all! So, I just have to say I am loving the weekends lately. I'm not certain if it's because it is my first summer in 4 years where I haven't had the worry about class or homework, but well no matter what the reason might be they sure have been nice! This weekend was another packed one, however the days didn't feel rushed and they didn't fly by. I'm linking up with Katie to share the marvelousness!

Started out by going over and spending the late morning/early afternoon with Billy's grandma. I absolutely love any and all time that we have over there. Around 4 o'clock I had to get ready to head down to a local outdoor music theatre, DTE, that we have for a dance appearance. I met the other 2 girls who were doing it also off the exit at 6:30 to grab some dinner and then carpool over. We had quite a bit of anticipation for we were not sure exactly what we were going to be doing. All we knew was when and where to be as well as what uniform to bring with us. Upon arriving we asked what it was that we would be doing and when we were told we all couldn't believe it! Lionel Richie was the artist performing and Friday night was his 65th birthday so we were being asked to help surprise him with a cake on stage! It was an absolutely incredible opportunity. Truly a night I'll never forget!

Saturday:
Was the grand opening of our city's new farmer's market! Billy and I headed over to check it out around 2 pm. It was exciting to see how many people were there; actually a ton of vendors had closed down by mid afternoon because they had sold out of what they had! We walked around for a couple hours really taking our time to look at everything. Once we finished getting the few things we had spotted we then went over to Billy's house so he could do some of his yard work. I decided to take this time to enjoy the beautiful day it was and lay outside and read. Well, that was the original plan. What actually happened was that I only made it through one chapter before I ended up passing out for a good hour and a half. Napping outside in the sun and fresh air is one of my favorite summer things to do. The rest of the night was dedicated to relaxing and backing up the photos on my computer.








Sunday:
Began with my mom, dad and I doing a few returns and of course when doing returns a little shopping always seems to occur too. I picked up a couple cute pairs of summer sandals that were only $8, but had a "my bad moment" and totally forgot to snap a photo! When I got back home Billy, Nic (my brother) and I headed out to the gym. I tried my first ever interval run on the treadmill and boy did I get my sweat on! After, we were on our way over to a friends house for their FIFA World Cup cookout. We got back home in plenty of time to close out a great weekend by watching Americas Got Talent.



What did you do this weekend??

    1. It was so exciting! And yes! I'm so happy with how the market turned out:) They did an awesome job with it. I know that there was some worry about them moving but I don't think there is anything to worry about at all. You should make a trip up sometime!
