Lazy weekend | Why Girls Are Weird

Lazy weekend

This weekend was VERY low key, which I totally needed to celebrate being done with this quarter of school. I now officially have 3 weeks off, just long enough to rejuvenate before my next classes start. Speaking of school, my grades are now official:

Go me!

Anyway, this weekend we just kind of hung out with my parents, my brother and his new girlfriend Jen. Now, in the past I have scared a few of my brother's girlfriends. One deserved it and the other was scared of me because of that, hehe. But I'm his older sister! However, Jen is AWESOME and she gets along great with our family. Definitely an A+ as far as I'm concerned!

Friday night we watched movies with my folks. Ryan and Jen didn't show up till late and by then we were all tired. Which is why I'm so happy Dustin is able to take half days at work, we got up there around 4 and got to feel like we had a little extra time.

Getting ready to leave

Sadly, the weather wasn't great this weekend. So Saturday we headed into town to check out Musky Fest. Yes, you read right. Hayward is the kind of town that has festivals for all kinds of things, muskies included. But I got to have a chocolate covered pretzel and ice cream AND see beagle puppies so I was a happy camper.

Saturday night we hung out at the house playing games. The first was Mille Bornes, which we didn't like because my parents totally dominated and my dad is a total sore winner. The second was Uno Spin, which I NEARLY WON till Ryan stole my win at the last second. SO MEAN!

Dustin was the big Uno loser

Ryan and Jen - aren't they cute?

Sunday we kind of lazily got our stuff together and didn't end up leaving till about 4. But none of us really wanted to leave. And I'm so ready to go back up again!

Anyway, hope you all had a great weekend! Stay turned for a new sponsor this week AND the first of After 'I Do's' charity spotlight!

Greetings from Lamb! Thank you for stopping by to show me some bloggy love. It was quite a shock to wake up and discover that I’d been featured on SITS, especially with my face covered in sticky cinnamon! Now I have lots of fun new blogs to explore. If you do try out my face mask, be sure to take a photo and email it to me. I’ll feature you in a post with a link to your blog :)

Rock on with the A's! And thanks for stopping by my blog


You are so smart, lady!! You should be extremely proud of yourself! And it might just be me, but your brother's girlfriend just needs some bangs and you two could be real sisters!

I am pretty sure that is the cutest damn dog in the world!
