We are so lucky to have been blessed with beautiful weather for the weekend. After all the rain and thunderstorms last week, we had high 70s with sun Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It made for a marvelous weekend.
We had Matt (my brother) and his girlfriend, Shelby, over for dinner! Shelby is still in college which has made it hard for us to get to know her. Now that she is home from school, we are trying to hang out more. Aaron cooked us some Grilled Chicken and veggies on the grill, and I made sweet potato fries. We spent the night laughing, talking, and working on my photography skills, ha. Shelby knows a lot more with cameras than I do (she takes wedding photos, senior pics, and more) and I asked her for some help with Aperture, ISO, and lighting. Now, I just need to practice! Benson was my practice on Friday night
Not sure why he was exhausted, or why he picked those positions to sleep. He’s too funny!
Body sculpt was the name of the game early morning followed by work outside. Aaron dug the holes for our posts in the back, and I worked on transporting the dirt. We also underestimated the amount of concrete we needed, and I was at the store buying 12 more bags. Can you believe we used 17 bags of concrete! Those 50 lb bags gave me another workout for the day.
Finally, around 6 o clock we finished! Now we are able to start laying the frame and actually putting wood on top. I can’t wait!
All I wanted in that heat Saturday was some Frozen Yogurt. We weren’t about to stop in the middle of making serious progress to get some, but we did find a place on our way out that evening. I had Cake Batter with Sprinkles, Cookie Dough, and Oreo pieces. Aaron had Chocolate Fudge Sorbet and loved it! We will definitely be back to this place.
We made our way to Cains Bar in Mt. Lebanon to celebrate our friend’s birthday. We had a good time, but I was completely exhausted. We ended up leaving around 11 when I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore, and Aaron was feeling the same way. If we hadn’t been outside working all day, we definitely could have stayed, but working in the heat really takes a number on your body! Aaron and I haven’t been out in a while with friends due to other commitments and being tired from working outside. I was glad we got out and had a reason to get dressed and look nice, ha!
After taking the morning easy, I went down to the boat by myself. Aaron had a hockey game, and my family met me later, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say the silence and peace was much appreciated! The boat truly is my relaxing place where I don’t really think of anything that needs to be done. We all need one of those places! After the family came down for a bit, I left to get things done at home and grill a delicious dinner. Well, Aaron handled the grill and I handled the inside part
And that takes us to today! By the time you read this, I’m up and teaching Body Sculpt (6 am, ouch) followed by a full day of work, and more Body Sculpt tonight!
Have a great day, everyone!
