Good Weekend

This weekend has been really enjoyable; from the start of Saturday to the end of today. I feel so blessed to have the good friends to share these summer days with. Having the abundant sunshine, warmth, and blue skies has been very uplifting. Though it is just the beginning of this season, there have been some great memories.

On Saturday, Janelle, Drew and I spent some time together. I went over to Janelle's apartment in the late afternoon and helped her finish cleaning. Janelle is not a fan of cleaning the floors, so I happily took over that job. While I was working on the floors Janelle cleaned other parts of the apartment. After cleaning, we went shopping so that Janelle could find a swimsuit. When we were done with shopping Drew was home. We all got our swimsuits on and went down to the apartment pool. Though it was not the warmest day (not a near-100 degree day), the pool was very refreshing. We spent about an hour and half playing around. After swimming we were famished and decided on pizza. We ended the day eating dinner together :) Wonderful day! Thank you Janelle and Drew!

Today was another good day. In the afternoon, I went over to Jennifer's house to watch the movie "Dear John." First of all, I want to say... Wow! That movie was incredible, especially because I recently saw "Eclipse." I was extremely impressed with the actors' ability to communicate their feelings without words. The chemistry between Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried was very passionate and emotional. I just loved the way that both actors/characters looked at each other. Lots of good quiet moments. I thoroughly enjoyed that movie- of course it was also based off of the Nicholas Sparks novel. Good writing inspires good movies.

Besides the movie it was nice to hang out with Jennifer. I hadn't seen her for over two weeks so it was good to catch up on life. When the movie was over we took a decent walk through the park near her house and enjoyed each other's company. I did get a little sunshine on my arms though. Oh well! Maybe a some color will help me to look less like a ghost.

After cooling down and drinking some water, I headed out from Jennifer's house. This evening we had a barbecue, which was tasty. :)

Now I'm going to go outside and help water the flowers.

Hope ya'll had a great weekend too!!

I'm glad you had such a good weekend! We really enjoyed having you over the other day. :-)

I have "Dear John" on our Netflix que. I'm glad to hear that it's a good watch! I'm sure Drew will have a great reaction to it. (Haha!)

Hope you enjoy your day!
