A much needed weekend

So after a very busy (but the most fun I've had in a while) previous weekend, I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend at home. I have recently gotten into bringing coupons and local sale ads to Wal-Mart to do my weekly grocery shopping. Since I started, I have saved an average of $20 a week, and I have become excited to shop and see what deals I will catch.

Anywho... I was getting ready to go shopping when my husband asked if we wanted to go to the river with some friends. You have to understand I am the type of person that when my mind is set on one thing, it takes a bit of convincing to change it. But I am so glad I did! We (Shawn, Jeanne, and I) met a married couple, who we have gotten close to, at the river and went out to a sand dune. It was so much fun. Jeanne loved walking on the sand and playing in the water. Of course she had a little life vest on.

After an hour or two, we headed back and we were all worn out. I'm glad we went out with our friends. I did end up going shopping that afternoon, and saved $19.04. Yay!

The rest of the weekend was relaxing. We just hung around the house getting things done (yard work, gardening, cleaning, etc). I have been working on newborn hats for a friend that does photo shoots. Here is a picture of the hats that I just finished for her:
I have a few more I am still working on for her. When I get busy around the house, it seems like one thing after another keeps preventing me from finishing.

I have really been enjoying watching my baby grow up. Not that I want her to grow up any faster. She has recently started giving BIG hugs. She will come up to me when I'm in the kitchen and wrap herself around my leg, squeeze, then walk away. And if I am on the floor, she will come up to me, through her little arms around my neck and hug me tight. We are a hugging family, so I love this! When trying to feed her this weekend, she threw something on the ground. I told her no, and she batted her little eye lashes at me, trying to make me change my mind. I am doomed!


  1. Cute hats.....why haven't we seen any pics of Jeanne wearing those??

  2. Carmen, her head is too big. I will try to make some for her later.

    Elena, thanks!
