Easy Going

Sometimes I feel like our weekends are so crammed full that by the time Monday morning rolls around, I'm already exhausted & ready for Friday afternoon again.

Now don't get me wrong, I love me a good action packed weekend.  I'm all about filling up our Saturdays & Sundays full of family & friends & parties & date nights, but every once in awhile it's nice to just have an easy going kind of weekend.

Kind of like the one we just had.

We had not a thing planned for two entire days {that rarely happens in this house}.  We woke up Saturday morning, looked at each other & said, "What do you wanna do today?"  And let me just tell you, that felt great.  We ate a big home cooked breakfast, we drank our coffee slow, we lounged in our jammies til' noon.  And once we peeked out the door to see that the sun was shining bright, we made the quick decision to pack up a pool bag & spend the day at our local pool soaking up what's left of this summertime season.

{Clearly, little mister is thoroughly enjoying his orange flavored push pop. Pool snacks still remain his favorite part of going to the pool.  He makes me laugh!}

Sunday, we had church as usual, but for the first time in a long time we were able to actually say "yes" when some friends asked us to have lunch afterwards.

We spent the afternoon & evening at home, just the three of us.  Jared watched a baseball game & Jett watched Blue's Clues {on the portable dvd player, because you know, that's just way cooler than watching it on the gigantic big screen we have}.

I was able to spend some time in my craft room, brainstorming & sewing up some fun fall decorations to spruce up the house {I'll share the final product soon}.

And even though I've got absolutely nothing exciting to report from our weekend happenings, it was still one of the best ones we've had in a while.  Easy going weekends leave me refreshed, refueled, & ready to tackle the week that lies ahead.  I wake up Monday morning recharged & with a skip in my step, rather than dragging & praying for the weekend to just hurry up already. Easy going weekends make me that much more excited for the weekends ahead, where we're burnin' up the road, schlepping babies & diaper bags, & toting along birthday gifts & side dishes.

Action packed weekends are awesome, but I think the easy going ones have their place, too.
