{ it's the weekend, baby }

weekend. oh weekend. i love you. i miss you. come back soon 
and make sure you bring warm weather with you.

some highlights from this weekend included 

a trip to target for various things. a trip to target is therapeutic, don't you agree? i didn't buy anything fun or even interesting (unless eye drops are your thing) but just strolling through the aisles by myself brought me peace. i love going there and throwing thing after thing in the basket. nothing i didn't need, in fact, i went with a list and followed it, but there is something about just adding things to my shopping cart. retail therapy at its best. 

we made dinner for our little family on saturday night instead of eating out like we usually would end up doing... and boy was it worth it! grilled chicken, mixed green salad, and, the best part, the pioneer woman's tomato cream sauce. i'm stealing her picture so you can see how yummy it can be. 

and we ate outside. that always puts the icing on the cake for me.

while we don't live in a ritzy town by any means there is a section of fairly wealthy people who reside in mansions. they also host an annual section-wide garage sale which i've attended every year that we've lived here. this year there were probably 50 sales going on on sunday and i hit the jackpot at one of them! i have been looking for a secretary hutch to go in my kitchen and i found one at the right price. now i'm off to start planning and working on this project:

finally, we ate dinner (outside) with friends and their adorable three kids. they also happen to be jake's godparents. 'twas a good evening. 'twas a wonderful weekend.
