This weekend was one of the BEST I've had in a while. Each day was just filled with things that bring me so much joy!
Friday, I worked a half day at work. That is enough there to just make the whole weekend begin on the right foot. :)
After I got off work, I headed to my best friend, Stephanie's house. I got to cuddle with her newborn and play with her older daughter as well. We had her help us make our bags for our Make The Homeless Smile project.
Headed home, and Nate and I went out on a dinner date. We had fro-yo to end the night.
It was so much fun! A lot of times we end up picking up dinner or having it delivered, so going out and enjoying our food and each others' company was great.
Saturday, I woke up early and headed to Steph's to get started on our project. Basically, what the Make The Homeless Smile project is goodie bags we made with an inspirational note, a bottle of water, a piece of fruit and a granola bar. We were out to pass them out to the increasing number of homeless people we see around Dallas. It's so unfortunate, and both of us have our hearts broke when we see them begging for food. So, why not help out? It brought us both so much joy, we were on cloud 9 for the rest of the night.
Afterwards, Nate had to do an event for work, so Steph and I headed out for girls' night. We ended up ordering appetizers and margaritas. And, we even ran into another BFF of ours from high school. Someone I haven't seen in probably close to 6 years.
We all went out for drinks and catching up for a few hours. It was beyond fun. So crazy to see how much we've changed and grown up, but we're still the same friends we've always been. It was definitely good for my soul. And I didn't get a pic of the 3 of us, oops! - I guess we were just having too much fun! :)
And my my my, how times change. Once the band started playing, we all walked away because it was "too loud" when 6-7 years ago, we would've been the girls as close as possible to the stage dancing our hearts out. And we were all yawning by 9 and called it a night around 10. I remember the days we'd just be going out for the night at that time. ;)
Sunday, I slept in much later than I normally would. Woke up and lounged around the house all day. I loved it. Warmed Pumpkin Marshmallow in all of my Scentsy warmers because it FINALLY feels a little like fall. I spent the day in the kitchen making spaghetti for dinner, and I made banana bread because of the fall-ish mood I was in. :)
How was your weekend, friends?
