Date Night

I didn't write my "Monday Stuff" post yesterday so I thought I'd write about weekend stuff. We had a good one! Friday night my sister came over to babysit while Ryan and I went out on a much needed date night. We NEVER go to the movies anymore but it's one of my favorite things to do. Ryan wanted to see Draft Day and we had a gift card left over from Christmas. Karlyn was excited to have aunt Karoline all to herself and I snuck out in time for us to eat before the movie. I was happy to see that one of our favorite burger places now has gluten free buns! I ordered a turkey burger with cheese and we split the sweet potato fries. I ate every last bite!

The movie was great. I really enjoyed it and it kept the attention of my always falls asleep spouse. We did have to sit on the end of a row instead of in the middle though since we were late. Movie pet peeve!!

Saturday morning Kar and I headed to the first farmers market of the season in our area and picked up a few things. Then we went to an essential oils class where I got to smell some new Young Living oils and pick up a reference book I'd ordered.

I LOVE Stress Away. Will definitely be getting that one soon. Speaking of oils, my allergies have been a mess the past few days. And I don't even have allergies! Somethings in the air so I've been diffusing lavender, peppermint, and lemon and today I saw a huge difference. I came home with a scratchy throat and runny nose and after running the diffuser and literally putting my face in the mist several times, my symptoms were gone. We've been having a slight "ants" issue too, I think because we had the dog food inside. Anyhoo...I didn't have any ant spray so I took a paper towel and added several drops of peppermint, lavender, citrus, whatever I had and wiped along the area where I'd been seeing them. I just now checked again and saw 1 ant. Only 1! Yay.

Later we took a family trip to Home Depot where our toddler proceeded to find some little plant booklet, climb up on this ladder/stool thing and say, "Be quiet everyone, God's lesson is about to begin." The girl is crazy! We let her get her "watering candle" which she was happy about. #itsthelittlethings

Sunday we went to church, came home and ate, and then this happened. :-( This was one of two red 13x9's I have and it made me sad. I was just washing it when...CRACK. I guess there will be an empty space now in our hutch.

That was our weekend! And tomorrow's already Wednesday. Tick tock, Tick tock.

Josh counts the ceiling tiles to make sure we sit at the exact middle spot of the row. So you're not alone ;-)

Shannon, I kept trying to plead my case but Ryan didn't want to "climb over people." I say that's a small price to pay for perfectly balanced movie viewing. ;>
