Happy Labor Day! Hopefully you’re all enjoying a delightful day off.
We had such a relaxing weekend. After the stressful events of last week, we were happy to relax a bit and enjoy each other’s company.
On Friday night, we went out on a Chipotle date. If you don’t know this already, J and I are obsessed with Chipotle. I could eat dinner there every single day … seriously. So, since we’re trying to eat more dinners at home, Chipotle is becoming less frequent … a date night is the perfect excuse. We came back home and watched The Adjustment Bureau. It was a really good movie … I mean, we love Matt Damon, so we didn’t expect anything less than excellent. Before the movie, J needed to fix the speakers … any excuse to use his headlamp, right?
Saturday morning was lazy. We slept in … then headed out for pankcakes.
After breakfast, we went to a friend’s going away party, then came home in time for the power to go out. We cuddled up with a pizza, some PBR and a movie on the laptop.
Sunday, we headed out to J’s mom’s house. We had lunch and left with so many goodies: J found the old Super 8 projector and movie camera up in the attic. It’s in mint condition and both still work! Now, we just need to buy some film and fire this puppy up!
We also added tons of records to our vinyl collection. Most notably: James Tayor, REO Speedwagon, Elton John, Art Garfunkle, Bing Crosby and some beautiful classical music.
J’s mom was gracious enough to give me a few pieces of her late mother’s jewelry. Grandma Kennedy passed away back in May, and I am honored to wear these pieces. They are beautiful, and obviously, remind us of her … win, win.
Now … onto today. It’s the first extremely beautiful day of the year. It’s not too hot, and not too cool. It’s that perfect temperature that makes you want to reach out your arms and give mother nature a great big hug. It feels like Fall. Here’s a secret: J and I LOVE Fall … hence one of the million reasons we’re moving to Oregon. It’s like the most beautiful Fall day the majority of the year. So, in honor of this amazing time of year, I headed to Bath & Body Works with my mom and sister to buy my favorite Fall candles: Autumn Apple, Leaves and Oatmeal Cookies.
And of course, the best part of this time of year: we can open the windows and let the breeze flow through our house. It’s just beautiful.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend! We’ll be checking in soon with an update on the house situation. We still haven’t heard from the potential buyers since the inspection, so we’ll just have to wait a bit longer. We’re keeping our chins up and hoping for the best.
