Weekend in Photos

Happy Memorial Day to you!  I hope you’ve all had a nice weekend.  Here was our weekend in photos:

My Friday started with a trip to the salon. I needed to get rid of my blah hair!

Next on the agenda was dinner at Southern Hospitality. We started with Fried Pickles (not pictured) and split the Rocky Mountain Combo. The ribs and frickles were good!

For dessert we split, 80/20 in my favor, the Banana Pudding. It was quite tasty.  Dinner was followed up with watching Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, it was a pretty good flick!

Saturday morning, we hopped in our new ride and headed to our old house to do some more cleaning and to pick up plants at Lowes.

Hooray for urban gardens! I planted some chives, wild flowers, and Forget Me Nots, too!

Woohoo for urban gardens!  I planted some chives, wild flowers, and forget me nots, too!

The wild flowers have already started growing. My thumb might be semi-green! *knock on wood

After a long day, Biker Jim’s was in order. My Louisiana Red Hots dog with cream cheese and onions hit the spot. The hand cut potato chips were fantastic too!

Sunday led to more work at the old house and a marathon of Arrested Development. Frozen bananas were a must.

Cranes, however, love to block the mountains.

Memorial Day was filled with sprucing up our new place. We got the chest Josh made in high school all cleaned up and it found a new home in our bedroom.

Pictures are happily on the wall now.

The espresso maker has yet to be used, but we did buy beans for it this weekend, so it will get put to use soon!

My desk sadly didn’t survive the move, so while we await a new one I have been working off the kitchen table. My work area did not get cleaned today. Hot mess!

More pictures were hung. But wait, are those maps you ask? Why yes, I got crafty and stitched where we were born, raised, and lived on four maps and Josh made frames for each map!
