Friday night I tried out a new recipe that I'll be sharing later this week. It was a husband and best friend approved, so I'll be making it again! Before dinner Matthew and I sat out on the patio and enjoyed the nice weather, and it made me so excited for more nights out there together this spring/summer. Love this sweet man of mine!
 Our best friend, Ethan, stayed the weekend with us, and Friday night after dinner we went to Hobby Lobby to pick up Matthew's frames that he had ordered a couple of weeks ago. They look so good and he got them up in his office this weekend and they look great! After Hobby Lobby we made a Dairy Queen run for some ice cream...because why not?? ;)

Saturday morning Matthew went to work, and Ethan had to run a few errands around town for the day, so Reagan and I slept in a little and then spent the rest of the morning outside. It was in the low 70's with a breeze and felt incredible! So Reagan played in the backyard all morning and I worked on our chalkboards, read, and ate an early lunch out on our patio. I knew we had storms coming early that afternoon so I wanted to spend as much time outside as we could. I even had all the windows open around the house to air it out and it was so nice!

After Matthew got home we all took a nap lol and then I woke up and worked on our big chalkboard that hangs in our kitchen. Reagan slept most of the afternoon, I guess playing outside all morning can wear a girl out! I forgot to take an after picture of this chalkboard but I used my new chalk markers on it that Rachel got me and I loved the new markers!! Has anyone ever used these markers? If not, get some! They are some of the best chalk markers that I have ever used...and I have tried a ton over the years.

Saturday afternoon Matthew and I got ready for date night! It was finally time for me to take Matthew out for a belated birthday date. I surprised him with a couples massage and dinner at one of our favorite places in town. It was a great night and we both agreed we need to get massages more often, ha!

It was a great weekend and I was sad to see it go, as usual ;)


  1. I'm so jealous you got a couples massage! I've never had a massage and Caleb and I constantly say that will be our treat when we get out of debt. Woo! I'm glad you had such a nice, relaxing weekend! :)

  2. What a great weekend! It was SO NICE outside here, and I can imagine how it was there! You make the best chalkboards - seriously, how is your writing / drawing so pretty?

  3. What a great wknd!! Brad and I got a gift certificate for a couples massage for our 40th bday 2 years ago, we still haven't used it, ugh!!

  4. What a great weekend!! I love those chalkboards!! :) I am a little jealous of the nice warm weather as it is freezing still here in the north! Looking forward to warmer Spring days ahead!!
