Recharge Weekend

This weekend was everything I needed. Today is Monday and I feel completely recharged, fully rebooted, a hard reset was just what I needed. 

Well, first things first. I chopped my hair off. Story is.. I was about to chop it off right around the time Duck Dude proposed.. so I didn't.. and now it's been, well, a while. So, 8 months into marriage and I chop it off! I am so glad I did. I love it. 

It really began Thursday night when my mom, bridesmaid Kristen and I went to see Sound of Music in Dallas!! It was absolutely wonderful. We did our best not to sing along, but hit each other's knees everytime we were so excited to hear a song we just couldn't help it. Duck Dude was out of town, but he asked me if I sang all the way home... I said, well of course I did!!!!

Friday we went to a friend's surprise 30th birthday party.. stayed for two hours and came home. Is that what birthday parties are like when you get older? Duck Dude was getting up early to go hunting... I was thankful for time to lay in bed. I was awake at 7 am, but it is so lovely to just get to lay there instead of immediately hopping out of bed.

Saturday was fantastic. Once Duck Dude got home from cooking we began decorating for Christmas!!! I know what some of you are thinking.. it's not even Thanksgiving yet... yes, you are correct.. but I promise you I can still be thankful with Christmas decorations up. Pinky promise. I created a fun little menu for dinner Saturday night and went to the store while Duck Dude was killing things. Here was our menu (recipes will be up tomorrow):
Appetizer: Chips with mango pico de gallo
Main Course: Sausage stuffed jalapenos
                       Surf and Turf Kabobs
Dessert: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

We watched a (frustrating) Baylor game and were asleep by 11. 

Sunday we heard a sermon that everyone needs to hear. Our pastor talked about our alarm clocks and how the biggest button on that alarm clock is what?! The snooze button!! Then he used Pharaoh in Exodus 3 to give us the example of pressing "snooze" on our sin. It's so much easier to say "I'll start tomorrow"... rather than right now. Touche pastor. I hear ya. 

Next up was the outside of our house! We have never decorated the outside of our house... so we made the big Walmart trip, picked out the perfect lights and got to work! It involved climbing on roofs and ladders and playing Christmas music the whole time we did it! It looks beautiful!! And we are now realllly those people who already have their Christmas lights on. And. I. Love. It. 

I am so thankful for a weekend like this.
