We spent the last few days pretty much everywhere but at home. It feels like we were out the entire time and thus chores and grocery shopping didn't get done which totally throws me off going into the week ahead! But the weather was amazing and I don't regret any of it.
First, I'm going to start with some sad news: My in-laws' dog passed away this weekend. He was an older golden retriever that had been suffering from seizures for a while and they finally took his life. Daytona was such a sweet, sweet boy and my father-in-law especially had a very special relationship with him. They were inseparable and truly best friends. We'll miss you buddy and you have a whole gang of amazing pets to hang out with up in animal heaven.
Saturday morning, we headed out to the States for a little mailbox pickup. We didn't have much time there because we had to be at my father-in-law's birthday dinner for 4pm, but I did manage a quick Target visit (is that even a thing?) while we were there. And I think I found the perfect dress, guys! I actually wanted it in black but my size was sold out so I got it in blush pink because I loved the fit so much. It's such a pretty texture and is cut so nicely. If I come across it in black in my size, I'm totally getting it too. Run!
The border into Canada was so busy and we were almost late for dinner but ended up making it to the restaurant right on time. I started off with a yummy salad and we each got a cupcake to celebrate.
Mike had a softball game on Sunday morning which turned into a fun tailgate barbecue. The weather was gorgeous and we had lots of people there! My mom came and my friends whose husbands play on the team brought their little ones as well. Days like this are totally what summer is all about.
After the game, we went from one barbecue to another. Mike's uncle was celebrating his 83rd birthday (but you'd never know it!) so we all gathered at Mike's cousins' place to celebrate. Aka, my favourite backyard of all time!
And throughout all this busyness, Mike and I managed to watch two movies this weekend! We stayed up pretty late on both Friday and Saturday because I had both of them on my to-watch list for a while. We watched Lincoln (the 2012 version with Daniel Day Lewis) and Steel Magnolias. Can you believe it was my first time watching Steel Magnolias? It's such a classic! My favourite line was "you know I love you more than my luggage" LOL so random. These are two very, very different movies but neither disappointed!
I hope you have a great weekend!
