Aside from the mosquito bites...

Yet another pretty terrific weekend! Things seems to FINALLY be looking up around here. Still tight but good nonetheless.

This past weekend was River Falls Days weekend. That means a parade on Friday evening with multiple beer gardens and bands playing afterward. We didn't go to any of that but after the parade Dustin's cousin Shawn and his wife Julia invited people over to their place for grilling, a bonfire and games. So went headed over there to eat good food, play games, chat and get eaten by bugs. Aside from the mosquitoes it was a pretty fun time!

I worked on Saturday which ended up being fun because it was busy for awhile, then slowed down enough to get some freight out, then I took my break and we were only open for a half hour after my break. Plus there were three of us closing so it took no time at all to close. The only problem is that the other new girl, Amanda, and I both missed out sales goals by all of $25. So annoying.

Right before leaving for work

And SUNDAY was another great day. Dustin and I reconstructed the picture wall I have going on. We had about 6 wedding pictures up but we changed some out and included some different pictures. I still have some other ones that I want to put up but so far I'm happy with it. Taryn came over a little later and we watched The NeverEnding Story and The NeverEnding Story II because she's never seen them AND because they're awesome movies. Seriously, if you haven't seen them yet you need to. After that we played Wii for awhile (Lego Harry Potter, heck yeah!) which of course was lots of fun!

Taryn is the animal whisperer

Sunday evening we went to the River Falls Days fireworks with Taryn, her boyfriend, Shawn, Julia, Ethan (Julia and Shawn's son) and Piston (Julia and Shawn's dog). The boys (minus Matt) played frisbee and us girls chatted. We sat for about an hour like that and then the fireworks started. Most summers they last about half an hour. This summer - about 10 minutes. What the heck!? I mean, the finale started (and lasted all of 30 seconds) and at the end we were like "was that it?" You know a fireworks display is bad when people can't tell when the finale is. Ah well, it was fun anyway.

Us! (how cute is this pic, huh!?)

So definitely a good weekend. And I have a quiet week this week, which I am SO looking forward to. Until Sunday, at least. My mom ended up not being able to come to Lilith Fair with me so Sara's coming instead. Lets hope we don't get ourselves kicked out, hehe.

Have a fabulous week all! Oh, and stay tuned tomorrow for a GIVEAWAY!

I LOVE that black and white shirt with the ruffles! It's adorable.


Those are ALL fantastic pictures!! You and Dustin are SO cute. And The Neverending Story is one of my all-time faves! Although I haven't seen II. I've just been so afraid it wouldn't live up to I and I'd be forever left with hopes dashed.

Looks like it was a very fun weekend, surrounded by friends! I love those!

Practically Perfect...

It sounds like a really fun weekend, mosquitoes and all ;-) I've heard that many towns are cutting back on fireworks because of the economy. My parents' hometown cut their display down from the usual 45 minutes to 15 minutes over July 4th. But 10 minutes is awfully short!

The Non-Student

Grr, sales goals. I worked at Anthropologie briefly (as a favor to a friend who was a manager), and I remember the people closing trying to get me to buy something to meet the goal for the day. I was like, "Hell to the NO am I going to spend the money I just earned on merchandise!"

Otherwise sounds like a fab weekend. :-)


The Never Ending Story films and Lego Harry Potter sound like the makings of a fantabulous day! I just bought that game myself and am a wee bit obsessed.


I have never seen The Neverending Story 2, didn't know there was one, but I've seen the first one a BILLION times with my son. He loved that movie.


Sounds like a completely awesome weekend. I've never seen Never Ending Story 2!!! Stopping by from SITS to say Hi!
