I want to start off by sending my deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who lost their lives in Florida this weekend. No words can describe what a tragedy these events are. It still astounds me that people can be so cruel and prejudice toward others.
I chose this quote from Maya Angelou as my quote of the week because it is so fitting. Hate accomplishes nothing. Love is love is love is love.
I could go on, but in an effort to keep things light, I am here to recap my weekend.
Friday at work we had an afternoon of professional activities. I always enjoy our PD sessions so much because it's a nice departure from our day-to-day roles and it's always a lot of fun. This time we focused on team building and exploring the creative sides of our brains. We watched this Ted Talk and check it out, I can draw! Who knew?
After work, Mike had his first softball game of the weekend. Mike's brother came out as a sub because the team was short players and it was so fun to see them play together again. They haven't been on the same team since 2012 but hope to play together again next summer.
We had some items delivered to our mailbox across the border so on Saturday morning we ventured over to the States. We popped over to the outlet mall because I need a new cross body purse to bring to Poland with me. Kate Spade was having a huge sale and I scored this bag in grey for 60% + 20% off!
We also hit up Target (of course) where I picked up some placemats, storage bins, and birthday cards. For lunch, we enjoyed burritos and odd combinations of pop at Qdoba. Always a favourite!
We topped off the night by watching the Miss USA pageant. I know I was way behind but I managed to not read any spoilers so I had no idea who the winner would be! My early picks were Arkansas and Alabama but I thought DC definitely deserved it. I totally teared up during her first walk as Miss USA because she was so emotional!
Mike had another softball game Saturday morning which called for a pretty early wake-up call. I watched alongside my mom and brother and a huge cup of coffee. Waking up before 9am on a weekend should be outlawed. I don't know how you mamas do it!
So in case you're keeping count, that's 3 sporting events in 3 days. Oh, and little bits of baseball and hockey was sprinkled in there as well. For someone who isn't a huge sports person, I sure watch a lot of it!
Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston for her Weekending series!
