Wonderful Weekend

We had a very full and wonderful weekend. We had an adorable house guest. We say adorable, Bo might argue. Although they are best friends and cousins, sometimes Spike (cutest name for this dog or what?!) wears out his welcome for poor sweet Bo. Sweet Spike never ever calms down, and Bo is slightly more mellow (and lovably lazy). Spike loves to chase Bo around the house and play. Bo loves this for about ten minutes, Spike for more like ten hours. We had so much fun, but every once in a while Bo needed a time out on the chair. Spike just stared until Bo was ready to play again.

So aside from loving on the two doggies all weekend, we also went to a festival at Krug Park, this beautiful park in St. Joe you should take some time to visit if you are here. One of my friends has gotten into concessions - her wording, not mine - and fries everything! I'm serious, we had fried twinkies, fried snickers, funnel cakes, cotton candy, and snow cones. YUM! I made myself sick before heading out to another great festival that same night. On Friday nights in the summer our downtown puts on free outdoor concerts! We met another couple and had drinks and listened to music and just had a wonderful time.

Saturday David and I went garage saling and then I met my wonderful friend and her daughter for lunch. My friend (check out her cute blog when you get a second: and I went all through college together and even got our first jobs working for the same company on the very same team! She is one of my very favorite people in the world. Now we live about 40 minutes apart and work an hour and a half away from each other - so I cherish these lunch dates. And I adore her daughter and all her stories.

Saturday night Dave had his Rotary Anniversary Dinner. It was at the Benton Club in town (the same place we had our rehearsal dinner!) and was Caribbean themed! We had the BEST time. My adorable husband won a surprise, peer elected award. It was so touching. I am always so incredibly proud to be his wife, and I am so happy for him when he is recognized for something that he has poured so much work and love into. He loves this foundation and believes in it. He is such an inspiration to me.

I know I have rambled on and on, but I haven't even touched on today! We had a beautiful morning together at church where Sister #1 gave the sermon! She talked about Psalm 73. She did a wonderful job and I look forward to re-reading the Psalm and thinking on it this week. We then celebrated her husband's, my brother-in-laws, 32nd Birthday with turkey burgers, fruit, veggies, and ice cream cake all prepared by Sister #1. It was a wonderful day celebrating family and a wonderful weekend celebrating summer!

Happy first week of June friends! I hope your week is as wonderful as mine has been!
