WEEKEND RECAP #28

Good morning! How was your weekend?  Relaxing?  Full of excitement?  Maybe something else?  Mine was a mix of fun, and leisure time.  I ate lots of yummy food, walked around our town, relaxed at the house, and enjoyed spending quality time (primary food) with loves ones. Love that! Friday evening we stayed in and relaxed.  We both had a busy week, so it was nice to just lounge around with no agenda.  I caught up on some reading, too!

After breakfast Greg and I ran errands (TJ's and Target) and straightened up the house before Sally and Kevin came to visit.  S & K are pretty much like family to us, so we were really excited to have them for the weekend!

After lunch we went to my favorite place in Pasadena, Vroman's Bookstore.  We had coffee, and wandered for quite a bit.  Don't you just love bookstores?  I could spend hours there (and have).

So, what did you do this weekend?  Gimme all the deets!
