Weekend Update!

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!  We certainly did at our house!  After work on Friday, I treated myself to a summertime pedicure.  It was just what the doctor ordered and extremely relaxing!  I love the color:  OPI’s Red My Fortune Cookie!IMG_0588

After a Saturday morning workout, I headed to the pool for the first time this season…and man, was it wonderful!  Since last summer was filled with lots of wedding activity, I decided this summer is going to be the summer of the pool!  Here’s to spending a lot more time doing a lot more of this:IMG_0589

That evening we took in a Nashville Sounds game with Chase and friends!  We had a great time, and even stayed for the fireworks after the game!DSCN5208DSCN5213DSCN5215DSCN5225

On Sunday morning, Patrick and I tried out a new church.  We had heard many great things about Crosspoint and even though I’m not really used to non-traditional church services, since I was raised in a very traditional Methodist church, I was very pleasantly surprised!  I definitely think we will be heading back to another church service soon! 

After church, we headed over to East Nashville for a yummy lunch at Nuvo Burrito and then hopped on our bikes and took an 8 mile bike ride over to the Shelby Bottoms Greenway and back to 5 Points.  I have to say that this was one of the most fun things I have done in a long time!  Was it exhausting?  Absolutely!  But we had such a great time and were really able to spend some QT together!20130526_13430020130526_135308

That evening, we headed over to Clay and Amber’s beautiful, new house for a cookout!  It was a great way to end the day and was also great to catch up with friends!

On Monday morning, I was back at the gym for another Zumba class, then Patrick and I spent a few hours in the front yard chopping down some massive bushes in front of our house!  When I say “we” I really mean that Patrick chopped down the bushes, and I carried stuff away and did whatever he told me!  These bushes are so flippin’ big that I SWEAR they look more like trees!  We will both be so glad when they are gone!  I think it will make the house look so pretty!  And, yes, I could kick myself that I forgot to take a before shot…oh, well, I’ll definitely post after pics once we get mulch laid and flowers planted…

After that, it was back to the pool for some more relaxation and sunbathing.  That evening, Patrick grilled out fish tacos, corn on the cob, and zucchini and squash.  It was delicious!  Oh, and I MAY have had tried the Crystal Light Margaritas…they are OK…I wouldn’t give them 5 stars or anything, but let’s face it…low calorie drinks usually don’t result in tasty drinks, no?IMG_0594

Well, that was it for the Suns’…I think we need a vacation weekend from our vacation weekend, but alas, work is calling and it’s not going to do itself.  Here’s to a nice productive week!  Happy Tuesday everyone!
