A wonderful, restful weekend

This weekend was absolutely wonderful... and yet I never did pull my camera out.  I need to get better about that - it's one of my goals!

Friday night was spent putting things away from the week.  I've almost finished a very thorough cleaning of my house, and yet the clutter catches back up with me too quickly.  My kitchen table isn't used for eating - it's used for holding everything that comes through my door :/  Yet another habit I need to break!

Saturday was date day!  Not very often that I get to be selfish and claim Josh as my own, but it happened.  We went to the Newport Aquarium, and had a blast!  I absolutely love places like that, and Newport's is very nice.  There was a good crowd there, but it didn't feel too bad.  The Navy Divers were in town, so we watched the dive show with them.  It was pretty interesting - I never thought about the fact that have to replace 800 pound propellers in the water!
After that, we walked up to Pompilios Restaurant.  If you've ever seen Rain Man, you should recognize it.  So much fun to walk through Hollywood in our own town!  And their food is delicious!  Josh had spaghetti and meatballs and ravioli in a huge bowl - I don't know how he ate it all.  I had an Italian panini which I couldn't finish - came close, but it just wasn't worth feeling bad the rest of the afternoon!  We walked to the Running Spot down there - Josh needed new shoes for the Chicago Marathon.  I was looking at their sports bras, but they didn't have my size.  The guy recommended going to their "main" store.  It was only 10 or 15 minutes out of the way, so we went.  Found exactly what I was looking for, we'll see how I like it!
Then it was nap time.... I don't know how, but I was so tired!  It's like the week catches up to me on the weekends and all I want to do is sleep.  We had an invite to go swimming and what not, but decided a night with Indiana Jones sounded better :)

Yesterday was a packed day.  Church in the morning, then getting ready for everything else!  Josh's family was celebrating his grandmother's birthday at his house, so that's where we started.  Then we headed to one of his co-worker's house, who is also uncle to Josh's friends.  Their food was amazing.  Grilled porkchops that were absolutely incredible!  We headed back to Josh's house for another hour or so, then on to the next gathering at one of his friend's house.  Finally got home around midnight I think, I was so tired by then!

Josh is off running 17 miles right now - Jenna and Lori are with him.  Glad they have a nice cool day for it!  Me, I wimped out and did Jillian.  Time to (finally) cut my grass.  When Josh is finished, I finally get to watch last night's "True Blood" - the wait is driving me crazy!
