What a Weekend! [Part One]

What a weeeeekend! These long ones with an extra day should definitely become tradition :) It was jam packed and oh so wonderful all at the same time.... and it was also a reflective weekend, of course! Memorial Day... so thankful for our freedom. AND one year ago today is when Josh and our parents found our house!! We went house-hunting on Memorial Day last year!

Okay... onto the NEWS! Saturday, Oh Saturday was a busy day of car-searching. We woke up early & went searching! If you don't remember this post, I got in a car accident 2 weeks ago. A guy backed into my drivers side passenger door and my car looked like this...


So... they decided because of the damage the amount that the car was worth... it was totaled. We decided to take the insurance $$ and fix the back door and sell Josh's and get a new car. Crazy, but it was the best all around situation. SO... we listed Josh's car on craigslist. Got a TON of scammers [that's another blog post].... but sold it to a nice guy && purchased this new friend...


Venus, the Vue :) I firmly believe that God hand picked this car for us! Of course it is used, but 2003 and in REALLY good condition... low miles and in our price range. UNBELIEVABLE! We also got the sense that this was the opportunity to "purchase for the future".... we will for sure grow into this car! :)

So great! And... then on Saturday night later... we got to babysit these cuties:


We took them swimming at the poool... it was SO hot! It was very fun and we felt like we fit in the neighborhood ;) Haha! They are so sweet... Aimee loved the water and Livvy just wanted to squirm everywhere.



So fun! We also went to the park and came home to watch The Squeakual Movie.... it was pretty cute! The chipettes, ha! I love babysitting!!

More to come about Sunday & Monday... How were your weekends?? I'm kind of thrown off... it's already TUESDAY tomorrow! :) Yes!
