Happy Monday everyone! Who else is wishing that today was a holiday like last week? What I wouldn't give for a four day work week.....well a girl can dream I guess :)
I was hoping for a really fun and relaxing weekend of nothingness...but life always seems to keep me on my toes. Friday night Kevin's band had a show at a wine bar in Portland which was fun, but we didn't get home until the wee hours of Saturday morning. We were supposed to go to the seafood festival in Hampton during the day on Saturday, but it decided to rain all day. Since all of the vendors from the festival are basically within walking distance to us, we decided not to spend the day in the rain. Looks like I'm going to have to go out and grab me a lobster roll this week to make up for it! Instead Kevin's parents needed us to help them build a new front porch on their house. They live in Maine, and luckily it wasn't raining there. It was still a disgusting day to be outside though and we were not too pumped to spend the day doing construction. Blahhhh
Yesterday we went to church and finally spoke to the pastor about joining the church and getting married there. We could tell that he already loves us! We just need to call the rectory to make an appointment to meet with him this week to get the ball rolling. (I mentioned to him that we are looking at May 2011 for the wedding and he said that they haven't even gotten a scheduling book for 2011 yet! Looks like we won't have any trouble scheduling a date!) And apparantly he went to the same college that we did- one more point for us!
After church we ran to the store to get home in time for the beginning of the first football Sunday of the season. Question: How do you non-loving football ladies do it?! I mean, growing up my dad always watched football on Sundays, but since we had more than one tv in the house it wasn't a problem. We only have one tv in our apartment though, and it was made very clear yesterday that it would be used soley for football on Sundays from now on. Funnnnnnnn. NOT. Oh well- I made it very clear that although football is on Monday nights as well, the new Gossip Girl season starts tonight...meaning that from 8-9 the tv is mine! We'll see how long that lasts though :)
We rounded out the day by going to my sister's for an early dinner. It was her husbands birthday and a nice relaxing end to the weekend. So we didn't have as much downtime as we had wanted, but there's always next weekend!
Good luck with the start to your week ladies!
P.S. An updated wedding details post to follow tomorrow!
