Monday, Monday ...

What a great weekend! I really didn't want it to end. On Friday night Skip and I went to see "Music and Lyrics" which basically will now enter into my top 10 best movies ever. I know I've heard a few people (a very few) say that it was just okay, but it you loved the 80's or just comedy in general, you will laugh from the beginning to the end. Hugh Grant is the best! I liked this movie most of all because it reminds me of any typical day of the week at my house. Skip is always writing music and recording it and then saying to me, "Just go write me some lyrics." Please take a chance, and go see it. It is precious. My in-laws saw it before we did, and also loved it.

After the movie, which was a 5:20pm showing, we took a drive by the bay and the water was beautiful. Skip wanted to show me where he had fished earlier on his day off. I am so glad he has a friend with a boat willing to take him. I am really trying to encourage Skip to go do more of the things he loves. After our drive, we took a 30 minute trip to Port Aransas and ate at Seafood & Spaghetti Works. We each had a salad bar, shared an appetizer of crab stuffed mushrooms, shared an entree of tempura battered fried shrimp, and we finished with delicious bread pudding. It was such a perfect evening. Of course then we came home to a crazy messy house with children completely mad that we didn't stay out longer. They love their babysitter and felt they needed to play longer. Did I ever mention how much I love our babysitter Sara? No, you cannot have her number, she is MINE!

Saturday, we hung out at the house. The girls had friends over, and then we went to watch Annie's friend play basketball. It was the cutest thing ever! Seven and eight year old girls playing sports in general is pretty hilarious. Their little personalities came out as they dribbled and shot blindly at times. I would love for Annie to play next year, but she said, "No way, I want to be a cheerleader." My girl knows what she wants. Seth had a chance to watch his friend play at the other half of the court. I wish he would give it a try, too. I know he lacks in strength and speed, but he can shoot very well. He has practiced everyday since we bought a basketball goal at Christmas.

The best part of the weekend was definitely our church service. The series is called "Words" and Bil's message was amazing. I was totally tearing up at the end. You can watch it online if you have an extra 4o minutes of your life to spare. The band played a Nickelback song "If Everyone Cared" which was phenomenal. You'll have to take my word for it because we can't put copyright music online. After church the kids and I indulged in a little KFC, well actually a lot of KFC. I know, not healthy but it was finger-licking good. Skip and I did a little yard work with all the beautiful sunshine we were having. I am so ready for our grass to be green again. Okay, I think I have officially bored you enough for one day. I have to go do some exercising. It has been 3 months of nothing, and my body is telling me that swimsuit season in Corpus is beginning in one week. Happy Week to all of you. May God be glorified in our lives today and always!

Hi, Susie~not boring at all. It is interesting to hear what you are up to, and I enjoy these types of posts, especially since I haven't had a date with my husband since we went fishing last summer. Pathetic isn't it?

I am glad you had a great weekend. There was nothing outstanding about ours, but that can be a blessing in itself, huh? Happy week to you, too!

Susie, I am so glad you and Skip enjoyed the movie, we did too! I was so glad my son and his girlfriend told us about it!

Nice that you two got out in the gorgeous sunshine too. Yardwork is exercise in itself! :)

I though you guys might love that movie. I want to see it as well.
It sounds like you had an awesome day with Skip.
I'm back and alive from NYC. I will post my New York minute favorites on my blog. It is so good to be home.
The sun, does feel great!!

I have never been bored reading your posts Susie :-) You really had a nice weekend. Those evenings together are precious.
Are you getting ready for the invasion of Spring Breakers? The weather has been so nice. I'm sure they'll all be there en force!!
I've been praying for Seth - and for you too. Perhaps in time he'll want to get out there on the court. I'm sure he'll do well when he feels like he's ready.
Have a good one!!
