Saturday morning I spent some much needed alone time with my coffee cup and some mindless television while i waited for my hubs to get off work. it was a cozy quiet morning in. and it eased me into a low key weekend quite nicely.
when brett got home we got a little fancy, stopped by a friends party, then made our way to la verne…where we looked into buying a house. whaaaaaaaaat. it was super cute and we could totally afford it, which is weird, but we are just taking it slow…and seeing whats out there…i dont think we’ll be buying the first house we saw, but its exciting to think about taking that big step with my sweet lad.
after house hunting and big kid adventures…we went on a little date. ate some steak and saw 21 jump street (wildly inappropriate but totally hilarious). then came home and snuggled on the couch for a little while. it was so relaxing and easy going…and us.
sunday we slept in together and made a target run to buy things we didnt really need. including a new espresso machine! then headed to church with the bro. heard an insanely great message. visited with the l.dub fam a bit and brought the bro back to our place…made some burgers…and watched true grit (which i found completely boring and dull…but anywho).
then i scurried to our bedroom to watch notting hill while the boys played call of duty for a while.
the weekend was full of these small moments where i could feel myself sigh in realization of how lucky i am. and how much i actually enjoy my life and the people in it. i need to make sure that i make time during the week…to calm myself down and enjoy everything going on.
happy monday friends…i hope you find all of the little pockets of joy today.
i just feel the need to share. that i. katie lemster (used to be hall) bought a compact and have makeups on mah face. if you dont know me this probably isnt that big of a deal. but i have never ever in my life used cover up or anything of that sort.
i kinda skipped the whole part in life where girls learn to do those kinds of things. like…make your face pretty and brush your hair. the general rules to looking put together are pretty much lost on me. even when i try to be fancy…theres always a hint of shlubs goin on.
the hubs and i have decided to “change our styles” i dont really know what this means to be honest. hes wearing ties a lot. i like it. and im gonna try to wear dresses and skirts more, and generally just take more time to look nice. the whole roll outta bed and get ready in 5 minutes thing is a really great tool, but when you are expected to be a grown up from 8-5 it would probably help if i looked less like an 8th grader. so…cheers to being 26, and finally deciding to take care of yourself. ugh.
