To my surprise I got to get off work early. I had a great day with the kids but it was nice to get home early. The boyfriend left for Eugene with his brother so I was in for an evening to myself. I spent it editing photos and watching girly movies. I also ended up sleeping on the couch. hehe.
I woke up early and watched another movie. I edited some more photos and ate pasta for breakfast. Then I went to dance practice, which was great considering I hadnt been in 2 weeks. Then I went home to get ready and I was off to Eugene.
I got to chat with my mom for a little bit then I was on my way to the boyfriends parents house. We hung out for a while with all of his family. It was really nice. His sister in now in the air force and left the next morning for Germany. So it was really great to see her before she left. Then we went with his brothers and sisters-in-laws to this little dive bar (that I dont care much for) but it was fun with good company. The best part was that I got to meet a fellow photographer, Jamie Jones, that I have been friends with on face book but have never actually met. I "met" her because she married a friend of mine from highschool, Kody, who just happens to be the brother of one of the boyfriends sister-in-laws. Get it? Anyways, she was wonderful. I cant even tell you. It was as if I had paid for a mini mentor session. She is one of the sweetest spirits ive met in a long time. She is generous and encouraging and I learned this all in the first 2 hours of face time.
Then it was back to my parents house for a mini hot tub sesh with the boyfriend. Then I passed out reading a book in my childhood bedroom.
I woke up to a call from one of my best friends Andi. We made a plan to hang out and she picked me up an hour later with the little man from the photography above! We went to Cafe Yumm (my fave place ever) and then to her house to hang out with her fiance and sister (also good friends of mine). It had been wayyyy too long and felt like home.
After a little nap on my parents couch, the boyfriend and I went to his grandmothers house. I simply adore his grandmother. She is teeny tiny and says the sweetest things you could think of. I just love his wonderful, never ending family. They are so great.
We then went back to my families dinner and ate even more. And visted for just a little longer.
I ofcourse slept for most of the drive home while the wonderful boyfriend drove in silence. Poor thing. But we ended the night, and weekend, with some relaxing cuddling and some Wonder Years!
How was your weekend?
