For a moment

This weekend was all about me trying to forget about life and have a good time. Friday we helped my mother get ready for the open house and I made 4 butterfinger pies to which I only licked the spatula once, when I was done using it of course. The next morning I woke up to be rewarded with another two pound loss. So apparently I've made it out of my plateau. This makes the total count so far -14 lbs. Great way to start your weekend I tell ya!

Even though it was hotter than I could have imagined, the open house went beautifully and it did NOT rain!

Aaron and I ducked out early (but not before making sure my mom had tons of help to clean up) and he went to see a movie with a friend of his, and I went shopping with his fiance. Did you hear that? I went shopping!!

When Aaron first met me I would literally spend about $200 every weekend on new clothes (hello living at home!) And once before a photo shoot, I went out and spent almost $400 on clothes for it. That was short lived when I moved out and found you couldn't spend like that and pay the rent. Or eat.

So, I didn't go crazy with the debit card, but I did splurge on a purse that was half off, matching wallet, tons of bath products and a new shirt and workout pants.

Saturday night we went to watch fireworks. (Opening season- yay!) We literally made it just as the first firework went up. It was a beautiful night made more perfect when Aaron leaned over to me and said "Happy Anniversary." It wasn't our anniversary but as most of you know if you've read me for a while, Aaron and I met online and our first face to face meeting was at a fireworks display at a large park on July 6th, 2003. So our first firework display of the year sort of signifies our anniversary. It's corny, but, whatever works right?

Sunday, after finally finding a place to launch our boat (I live in a county that has 34 beautiful lakes) we jumped in and cooled our bodies and splashed around while idiots drove 20 feet from our heads on jetskis and other boats. It was way too crowded and I could see Aaron getting frustrated that people didn't pay attention to anyone else but that's what you get when you have a 90+ degree day out and a lot of people who own boats and jetskis. Welcome to Michigan. There was even a sheriff out on the lake and even he couldn't control everyone. There were just too many people out on such a hot day. But, we did have fun and afterwards went back home and cooked out hamburgers and hotdogs. With a slice of No Sugar Added apple pie for desert. ;)
Yes, I do realize if there had been a baseball game on the tv, we would have fit perfectly into the great American cliche. But I don't mind one bit.

Summer, it has begun.

    Just reading "butterfinger pie" makes my mouth water! And only 1 lick? You're doing awesome!!

    Sounds like a beautiful weekend. And what a sweet tradition you & Aaron have with the fireworks display.
