Another fabulous weekend come and gone.  Luckily there’s always another one just around the corner!

We had a busy weekend!  3 graduation parties, our niece’s 13th birthday party, another niece’s dance recital and our 11th wedding anniversary.  Because our anniversary was on Saturday, and your anniversary is rarely on a Saturday, we decided to go out to supper that night. Then the grad party invitations started rolling in.  2 on Saturday at 4:00.  It worked out to hit up both parties on our way to the big city to celebrate our day. In hindsight we should have celebrated our anniversary on another day because the parties both served awesome food, we could have had supper for free!  Oh well, next time we’ll know better. 

So for our anniversary we had planned on going to one restaurant for their bruschetta (the most amazing bruschetta I’ve ever had!), then go to another place for their pizza (our favorite!).  But because we snacked at the parties we decided to skip the appetizer and go straight for the pizza.  After that we ran to the mall for a quick stop, then stopped at the gas station for a drink and a Powerball ticket.  We didn’t win. Not the most glamorous wedding anniversary but it was a fun and we spent the whole day together, which is all we really want.

Sunday we had another graduation party.  They served soft shelled tacos, a great idea for a big party like that!  While there some storms started firing up.  We only got sprinkled on but a lot of people left because they were worried about driving home in the bad weather.  We lucked out and the storms didn’t hit until 10:00 last night.  Strong winds (60 mph), they snapped a bunch of power line poles in half, took down a lot of big limbs and ripped the tin off at least one hog building.  We had our bedroom window open when the line of storms came up, laying in our bed watching the lightning.  All of a sudden the wind really picked up just as it started raining.  It was blowing in the window so Andy jumped up out of bed to shut the window and it was like he got power washed!  I laughed so hard, he was soaked!!!  Then the electricity went out.  It’s always so eerie when the electricity is off!  So that came back on about 1:30, so we reset the alarm clock, then the electricity went back off again until about 4:30, so we reset the alarm AGAIN.  We were lucky, no damage at our house.  We send prayers to those who were hit by tornados down in Oklahoma and Kansas.

I hope you all have a great week!  Next weekend is a long one – yipee!! – so we all have that to look forward to!



  1. what a great anniversary im glad you two had fun! Pizza sounds so amazing!

    It only rained heavy for like 15-20 minutes with the sky pitch black at like 630 but then after that wasn't too bad glad it wasn't too bad where you are at either ;)

  2. I love that you went to multiple restaurants for your anniversary dinner! That is totally something Todd & I would do. Love, Love, Love it!!

    Sounds like you had such a great weekend! Rest up this week !

    Glad to hear that you survived the storm okay. Sounds scary!!

  3. Yikes! Sounds scary! I'm such a baby when it comes to storms and tornadoes. Although for some reason I wasn't bothered by our piece of the weather system when it came through and I was in DSW. Too many pretty shoes to distract! :)

  4. Aw, sounds like you had such a nice day! Especially spending the whole day together!! And pizza, yummy!! Exactly how I'd want to spend my anniversary!!

    I hate it when the power goes off! I hate having to reset all the clocks! I like it when they all say the exact same time!!
