A Little R&R Never Hurts


April 25, 2011

That seemed to be the theme for this weekend…rest and relaxation, and lots of it. I told Jeff I didn’t want to plan much of anything–I wanted a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of time and that’s exactly what we did.

Friday night, the boy cooked us a marvelous dinner…grilled mahi and steamed mussels and it was fantabulous–he assures me he has now perfected cooking seafood on the grill so I think I’m in for a lot of it this summer–yippee!
That night, we decided to stay in and forego the crowded theater and instead rented The King’s Speech which was a GREAT movie. A little slow to get going, but such a great {and true} story…definitely worth watching!
Saturday morning was INCREDIBLE as I slept in until 8AM…I know I am old, and yes we consider that to be a late start to the day now–haha! Then we headed to the gym, ran errands around town, and then headed to spend the rest of the day with my parents.
We worked on wedding tasks and knocked some big to-dos out of the way {Mom and Dad, you are lifesavers I tell you!} and then we all headed out to downtown Franklin for dinner at 55 South and dessert at Sweet CeCe’s. The weather was gorgeous and it was a great time for the 4 of us to take it easy and catch-up.
Sunday morning, we were up and at it early to celebrate Easter–of course the Easter Bunny himself surprised Jeff and I with baskets filled with goodies and then we headed off to church. I was so excited to have my grandparents, parents, and Jeff and I together on Easter…lots to celebrate this year and I loved our message in how love overcomes death…don’t you love it when the sermon really speaks to you?
{I would totally show more of my pictures if they wouldn’t turn sideways–blogger fail!}
Afterwards, we met the rest of the family at Bosco’s for brunch and then headed home to enjoy the rest of our Sunday cooking, organizing, and watching some TV. We are now obsessed with the new show on HBO called Game of Thrones! All in all, a weekend spent doing the things I love with the people I love the most.
And no, I haven’t given in and eaten chocolate yet…yes Lent is over, but tomorrow is bridal portrait day meaning my all sugar/chocolate fest has to wait until Tuesday night! 😉 Have a great Monday friends!
  1. We did the same thing this weekend! I actually posted an almost identical post earlier this morning. Too funny! Happy Monday.
