this weekend... ohhh boy
it was definitely a mixture of good and bad.
another roller coaster of emotion! 

on Friday my best friend found out that her 16 year old brother has cancer.
it is both shocking  and depressing.
however, from what I have been told,
the prognosis is good. fingers and toes crossed people.

Friday Aaron and I also went to the Melting Pot for our anniversary dinner.
we used to go to a place called The Fondue Room in Mount Clemens (Michigan),
all the time. basically for every holiday, event, or occasion you could think of.
I wish they were still in business because the Melting Pot did not live up to expectations.

after much review it seems like this post will be mostly me complaining.. 

Saturday I got a lot done at home. cleaning, organizing, down sizing.
it was so nice and extremely productive.
I must have gotten up earlier than I thought,
because we went and bought dog food, I went to two different stores,
did all that stuff at home, sat on my butt for a few, and went to a late dinner with Bre.
overall, a completely lovely day.

Sunday... tiring!
I went to two different grocery stores.
spent WAY too much money.
separated everything so that I can be more lazy during the week,
and played video games with Aaron.
I completely skipped doing homework...
when will I learn?

It was a good weekend, with some bad news mixed in.
I hope that everything turns out for the best.

I love you Bre
my thoughts are with your family
...but you already knew that!



  1. grocery shopping is always a stressful thing for me...i hate getting to the checkout because i always feel like no matter how hard i try, i always spend too much money!

    we will be keeping your friend's brother in our prayers!

    happy monday!

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's brother, but a good prognosis is a great start, so my fingers and toes are crossed as well! And at least some prouctivity came out of this weekend, it might not have been homework, but just say your dog at it, unlike that cheezit she's cuddling with.

  3. Sorry to hear of all the hard things you had to deal with this weekend! Glad you made it through & seems like you've got a good attitude about it all.

    And happy anniversary!!

  4. I'm new to your blog and I just wanted to say I'm so so sorry about your friend's brother :( My best friend when I was 14 got diagnosed with cancer and it was so heartbreaking. Thankfully she had a good prognosis as well and is now in remission, so please keep your spirits up! The doctors know what they're doing :)

  5. Thank you everyone for kind words! It is very much appreciated! And thank you Amanda for putting up with my emotional roller coaster, the ride hasn't come to stop yet so please don't be mad if I'm not quite myself sometimes. I <3 YOU!
