Another Weekend Update

Hello blogland and you lovely bloggettes and blogdudes!

How are you this fine Monday morning?

Me...... not too happy that it is already Monday! Where in the world did the weekend go? It flew by so fast my head "figuratively" spun. (That's for you Jon.)

We really did a whole lotta nothin this weekend and I was not happy when the alarm clock went off bright and early this morning. And to add to my "not happy" note, we had daylight savings yesterday and it is now getting dark at 5:00 p.m. YUP 5!! What the hey Germany! I forgot how early night falls in the wintertime here.

Anyway, here's what the Barretts were up to this weekend:

Friday we went to the American sports bar downtown and grabbed a couple of drinks with some friends. Then of course it always turns into a couple more and a couple more...... Good times! Sadly, I forgot to take pictures......

Saturday we did absolutely nothing, like didn't leave the house, nothing! And it was FANTASTIC! I got Jon to have a scary movie marathon with me. We watched scary movies all day long! What a perfect day.

Sunday I had a couple of hairdos! Yup on a Sunday. But these clients can only come in on Sundays and it really works out just fine for me. Afterward we headed over to the hospital to visit our friends Shannon and Don who just had their very first baby. Her name is Oriana Grace and she is the sweetest, tinyest, most adorable thing! Congratulations to them, she is a precious blessing. I was going to take a picture, but I got caught up in her cuteness and forgot.

After visiting them we braved the commissary on base, which always causes my blood pressure to rise, but made it out okay and ended up at home on the couch to be lazy for the rest of the evening.

Pretty lazy weekend ya'll, but it was perfect!

I meant to show these last week: I bought a new pair of boots for traveling. I think they'll be perfect for all of the walking we'll be doing this winter. I wanted some flat boots so as to not ruin my boots with heels. What do ya think?

OH!! I was so excited to check my blog this morning only to find that I had some new followers!!
Hello and Welcome to The Adventures of Jon and Steph! Glad you stopped by ;)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!

Lisa said...

Those boots are way cute! And I can't believe it gets dark at 5 PM!

In Wisconsin, during daylight savings time, it would get dark around that too, it always got so depressing in February or so!
