LOVELY Weekend :)

How LOVELY the weekends are... We wait in anticipation for them! Ours was fabulous. We celebrated with my daddy on Friday night. It was his birrrthhday.

Banana Cream Pie for my father! It's his fav... we watched the opening of the Olympics, ate some Famous Dave's ribs, and played Wii. It was a fun celebration!

I HAD to put this picture up... Check out this card: "You're the salsa on the NACHOS we call FAMILY". I think we all about died in laughter as my dad opened this card from my HILARIOUS Grammy Joann. I will post more about her soon! She is my mama's mom. I love her dearly. This card definitely wins an award or something... :)

Valentine's Day began on Saturday for us! Joshy brought me flowers... a day early. I didn't mind! Gotta love red roses. My sweet husband is too good to me :)

We went to the Valentines Dinner at our church. It was so fun! At our table we represented 33 years of marriage with Steph & Chris (sister & brother-in-law), Mark and Sherrill (in laws!), and Sarah & Ryan (our cute married friends). We had a great time and the food was so yummy!! I didn't take a picture of the table... bummer! It was such a blessing to be served by friends from church.
Sunday we had an awesome Church service on Vision. It was so refreshing!! Josh and I headed to the Mall of America for our "annual" Valentine's date: Tucci Benuci (delicious italian restaurant), Movie, and Ferris Wheel. We saw the movie, Valentines Day - not sure if I'd recommend it. It was decent, but Hollywood's idea of love is sooo skewed. The coolest part was that two of the young couples in the movie made some GOOD decisions at the end.

The Ferris wheel is always a thrill. It is so deceiving, because we are inside a HUGE mall and it feels like summer riding a Ferris wheel. Like at a carnival or something?! It was a nice "dream"... until we walked outside to SNOW.

Now a NEW week... what's in store? Work, Homework, some dreaming/vision planning, Photography... just Life as a Wife! Bound to be another amazing week! Blessings to you all :)
