A Lovely Weekend

This weekend turned out to be absolutely fantastic!

Saturday, the neighborhood next door to us was having a community yard sale. Matt and I headed over there first thing in the morning and we found some great deals! Here are some of the treasures we found among the junk:

Got these little babies for $1 each!

Christmas is June!

We (Matt) have a tiny obsession with Dogs Playing Poker. Framed picture=$2!

We headed to Barnes and Noble to spend the gift cards my parents got my for my B-day and then scooted over to the driving range! It was the one thing I asked to do for my birthday weekend. I love to golf, but I don't get to do it very often, therefore my consistency on the course...not so great. I do have my own clubs though, which makes me feel like a real golfer! Do real golfer wear flip flops? Hm.

Here's my hubby in action! He is really, really, really good. I'm learning from the best :)

He's so cute, I just can't help myself!

We did a little work on our putting and then headed home. The weather was beautiful so we grilled out! I had to run to the store to grab some buns for our spontaneous grill extravaganza...so I picked up some wine! Yummy! Happy Birthday to me! What a fabulous night!

Sunday we had to make up for our lack of grocery shopping so we hit the stores. The rest of the day I spent catching up on our mound of laundry while Matt washed my car! What a guy...I didn't even ask! Now it's sparkling like new....if a new car has a dent in the side, is missing an antenna, and only has one side mirror. But that's beside the point.

And now, a list of things I cannot do without feeling the intense soreness and pain from swinging a golf club (yes, I am sore from golf):
  • drive
  • put my hair in a pony tail
  • hold anything of significant weight in either hand (and by significant weight, I mean the remote)
  • write
  • turn a door knob
  • carry my purse
  • do the elliptical
Judge all you want. Try it...see how you feel! Ouch, add typing to the list.

Hahah, I suck at golf. It is a miracle if the ball leaves the ground and doesn't roll five feet!

Sounds like a fun weekend and I hope you're not sore for much longer!

aaww, poor thing! my boyfriend was on his college golf team so i know just how you feel! {you sound much better than i am however} but the soreness.. yes i understand! sounds like you had a lovely weekend :)

Cristina said...

Have you read those books? They are so good! Read them in order though (Something borrowed, Something Blue and then Baby Proof) you're really going to like them. Don't feel bad about being sore from Golf, the last time I went to the driving range I was sore for a week!

PS - how sad was Days of our lives last week?? I was crying like a baby when Nicole was in the chapel asking for forgiveness and then when Rafe was talking to hottie Dr. Daniel...I still havent watched this week's episodes though, can't wait to see what happens!

PPS - sorry for the LONG comment :)
