Weekend Update

I seriously can't believe it is Monday again! The weekend went by way too fast! Friday was E's day off. (He works more during the week so he can be off every other Friday). It is great because every other weekend is a three-day weekend for us. However, we don't always have a ton of fun! This Friday, we took advantage of the sunny skies and high temps to work on the fence. When we started, all that was done were the posts set in concrete. We made a trip to Home Depot and got the 2x4s that go cross-ways. We got ALL of those up and then we started on the pickets and the gate. Saturday, we were going to get up again and work on it, but it didn't work, we were just TOO tired! So, we took Saturday off and relaxed a little bit. Sunday, was mother's day. E and I got up early and we prepared lunch. We were cooking a roast and homemade rolls. So, we got all of that ready and then went to church. After church, we ate the yummiest lunch every with my parents and my brother. Then, we came home and got busy on the fence again! We decided to invest in a nail gun instead of using the hammer. Man, it made a HUGE difference! We are almost done with the whole thing. We would have finished yesterday, if we had not run out of pickets! So exciting! We ALMOST have a WHOLE fence and the best part about it is that we have done the whole thing by ourselves. Just the two of us. It is going to be a great accomplishment that we will be proud of when it is finished! It has also been so much fun spending so much time together with no distractions!

On to other things, we are still running and doing well! Even though it was HARD to get up this morning, we did it, and are moving right along! Oh, and I got a call this weekend that MY WEDDING DRESS IS HERE!!! Woo Hoo!! Now, I just have to make an appointment to go have it fitted. Hope you all had a great weekend and have an even better week! Don't forget to keep remembering those in Nashville.
