Dinner for Eight & Weekend Recap!

On our way to dinner

Saturday night we met with our "Dinner for Eight" group. Us and three other couples in the church meet monthly for dinner at one of our houses. The hosts prepare the main course and each of the other couples bring sides and dessert. Despite the rainy weather, it was a very nice evening. We had a tasty meal and we took sopapilla cheesecake for dessert and we had that with delicious coffee. There are currently two "Dinner for Eight" groups at church, but a possible third group forming. It is a great concept and a time of fun and fellowship.

The rest of the weekend was really nice - nothing spectacular, but a good weekend as always. Friday night we went to dinner and then we each had allowance we wanted to spend. Yes, we get allowance each month...which helps us control our spending, haha! John bought a new softball bat at Dick's Sporting Goods and I bought a few things at Hobby Lobby. After that we went by Starbucks and then bought our groceries for this week.

Saturday was spent doing all sorts of things around the house on our "to do" list and then we went to the "Dinner for Eight". Yesterday was a wonderful Sunday school class lesson (studying the book of Esther) and a great worship service - we LOVE our church! After church we ate lunch and spent the rest of the day watching football and doing more "stuff" around the house. I also deep cleaned the living room and did some rearranging of several decor items - I'll be decorating for fall this week, so exciting! Last night we watched the Sunday night football game, made popcorn on the stove and played dominoes. John was supposed to have a softball game, but it rained all weekend.

This was Calvin at 6:30 this morning when I was leaving for work. I think he is saying "I don't want the weekend to be over". He has SUCH a hard life...

Looking forward to this week - Happy Monday!
Until we meet again...

  1. Sounds like you had a great weekend! Ours was good as well. Between working and chores, I have been swamped! Plus, I move slower now, so things take a little more time to get accomplished. Like this for example: putting on socks and shoes!!! It is both uncomfortable and physically draining!

    Have a great start to your week. I am sure I will have some time to chat real soon. I will pop in when I do! :)
