4-Day Weekend

The past 2 weeks at work have been some of the most stressful work weeks of the whole year. I logged some long hours and sacrificed evenings at home and my whole weekend last week trying to meet a deadline. Fortunately though, I was off from Friday through today and I have thoroughly enjoyed having a 4-day weekend with no set agenda. We've been flexible and free enough to make last minutes plans with friends, see both sides of our family, and enjoy this beautiful weather. I slept in on Friday, got an hour long massage to alleviate some of the back spasms I'd been having (from stress and long hours at a desk), and then went to Tom's new office to check out his digs and take him to lunch.

Tom went to the first OU game of the season on Saturday night and I opted to stay home. I ended up going to my parent's house to hang out for a little bit. While I was there, my mom was making an apple bundt cake for my grandma. While it was baking, the smell of spices and apples filled their house. Welcome fall, my favorite season. The cake was yummy and turned out just as gorgeous as the picture on the front of this month's Southern Living, but I would expect nothing less from my mother. ;)

What a gift this beautiful weather has been, it just makes everything all better. We've had a blast this weekend just riding around in the car together with the sunroof open and windows down.

Gotta go to the grocery store and get ready for another dinner with friends! Happy Labor Day!
