Weekend Recap: Relaxing

Weekend Recap: Relaxing


I’m beyond thankful for the relaxing weekend we had.  I feel refreshed today at the start of the week.  My October is looking pretty full, so it was nice to recharge for the weekend.


But recharging didn’t mean sitting around all weekend. Nope! There were adventures to be had!


Friday evening, I got a GREAT pedicure (I decided to splurge for the “deluxe” and it came with hot stone massage and paraffin dip!) and then had a girls’ night with my life group.  We watched Mom’s Night Out. If you haven’t seen it yet – you MUST rent it.  It was hilarious.

Saturday, I decided to hit up the Farmer’s Market downtown.  The air was crisp and it was so nice.  While the beautiful summer veggies are winding down, they were full of pumpkins! I was tempted by that light orange cinderella pumpkin in the bottom right, but I decided to just get one for carving at the local produce store.


On my way out of the farmer’s market, I spotted a group of historical folks.  I just love living in Fort Smith.  The area is rich with history and those looking to preserve it…including these folks.


After running a few more errands (Twin City Produce and car wash), I hit up my friend Brandy’s Zumba class.  It was my first Zumba class since surgery and I’m glad to say it went well.  Aside from feeling out of shape for not working out for 2 weeks, nothing hurt.

I spent Saturday evening resting because Tyler was hunting.


Sunday we had a fun day. We went to church and then to town for lunch.  It’s rare for us to make a trip into town on a Sunday, but we decided to go to lunch and a movie.  Red Lobster was our lunch choice because of their endless shrimp promotion.  We felt like we took advantage of it (dad and I each got one “refill” and Tyler got 3!) but OH MY GOSH, a table next to us said a few guys were on their 9th plate of shrimp! Holy cow!

After lunch we saw the Maze Runner.  I liked it.  They made a lot of changes from the book, but the movie was still good.

When we got home, Tyler was pooped (too many shrimp?) and laid down for a nap…which became just going to bed at 6.  That’s right.  He never got up from his nap.


So Mikey and I had the evening to clean, cook and watch a movie.  He enjoyed sitting in my lap watching Gypsy, another musical I rented from the library.




I also did some photo editing.  I enjoyed playing with my new lens this weekend and fixed up the photos (to compensate for my lack of photography skills).  Fashion, cooking, and fun coming soon to this place.




I also did some coloring. My sweet friends Taylor and Kristin sent me a care package before surgery.  I love to color, and it wasn’t super comfortable right after surgery…but I’ve almost filled the book in the week since coloring felt okay.  Check out this masterpiece! ha!




So that was my weekend.  It was great.


How was your weekend? What was the last movie you saw in theaters?


  1. Coloring books are so therapeutic (and fun). 🙂
