Why do the weekends go by so fast?

I had a mostly nice and relaxing weekend and didn't want it to end but then again, I will be in beautiful Italy next weekend so I guess starting the work week is not so bad.

On Saturday, J took my car over to his parents' to do an oil change and also fix the passenger side door lock which no longer responded to my remote lock. I should give KUDOS to J because he saved us about $350. The dealership wanted $400 for it but J said he could fix it with his dad. So he shopped around for the parts, got it and then he and his dad were able to fix it. My honey is always taking such good care of me.

So while J took my car out to get it fixed, I went to the gym to take a body combat (a.k.a. kickboxing) class.  I had a great time and I always enjoy that class. Afterwards, I pretty much spent the rest of the afternoon/early evening watching Sex & The City. I can't believe I never saw that movie. I wasn't a series regular but I definitely enjoyed watching the movie.

J in the meantime went out with his boys. J doesn't really go out a lot with his boys and even though I understood that, I was in quite a foul mood when he got back home. Can't even say why. No doubt J attributed it to "pregnancy hormones". Thankfully, he was patient with me and gave me the space I needed.

Sunday, we went to the early morning service and then I taught Sunday School to 6 & 7 year olds while J volunteered with the older kids. We headed to IHOP for brunch and then back home.
I took a nice 2-hour nap. I must say I LOVE my Sunday afternoon naps. I am going to miss it when this little one arrives.

When I woke up, J had dinner going. He made very yummy stuffed peppers and I enjoyed every single bit. Then we saw The Vow. I guess it was a weekend of chick flicks.
The only thing that would have made it better would have been a glass of margarita but since I can't do that, I settled for a glass of cold mango juice.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend I am looking forward to the week ahead!

Thoughts/Random Questions:
How was your weekend?


  1. The stuffed peppers look amazing! Kudos to J for making it!

    I'll drink margaritas for you ;)

    That is so awesome you were able to save that much in fixing your car on your own. Handy husbands are the best. Too bad mine isn't, lol.

    1. Lol Faith. Thank you. I got a virgin Margarita on Friday evening but it definitely was not the same.

      Hubby's dad is pretty handy and he's rubbed off on hubby. Already this year alone, he's saved us almost $5g. It definitely comes in handy.
      Now I just need to teach him to rub my feet for more than 5-minutes and I'll be a happy camper.

  2. I heart your blog! I'm hosting 3 fab giveaways {Lush Nuts, Namaste & Enjoy hair care} & thought you would be interested!

    P.S. I'm now following you on GFC :)

  3. Congrats on the little person! I know what you mean about Sunday afternoon naps..I work at my church, too so coming home and sleeping after a nice meal is simply wonderful!

    1. Thanks Morgan! I truly have enjoyed working the kids and will miss them while I am out on maternity.
