My Mostly Relaxing Weekend!

My sister graduated on Thursday!! Doesn't she look so pretty and smart? She graduated with honors. We are so proud of her!


It's too bad Brian (my oldest brother) couldn't be here with us!


After the graduation we went to dinner at Buca Di Beppo. It was really fun. It was a relief that we were all getting along...let's face it...my brother Steven and I can bicker like a couple of kids. But it was actually nice to have fun together!


Brian was on the phone for part of the meal.


Check out this food!


On Friday night, I treated myself to a massage at Massage Envy. The first time you go, you get an hour massage for just $40.00. I need it really badly because of sitting at a desk all day and carrying heavy bags and such. Anyway, let's just say I have been having a lot of headaches lately along with tension in my shoulders and knots in my back.

I had someone really good who was very thorough and told me things I never knew before. Apparently I have had some congestion in my sinuses that could be the cause of my headaches. She worked that out. She also worked out a bunch of scar tissue from around my shoulder blades due to sleeping on my sides and showed me stretches I can do to counteract it. There's more, but yeah- she could tell a lot from massaging me and then told me about it and I found it really interesting! I have thought about going into massage therapy for work...but there are just some people in the world I would rather not touch, thank you!

Then I went to Ross next door and found a few new dresses I have been searching for for church and work! Yay!

On Saturday I was so productive! I went to get my pants hemmed finally, got my oil changed...


...got another cute summery skirt with a shirt and cardigan to match, gave Jexi a bath, cleaned up around our apartment, spent some time with Michael before he left for work...then I went to see Kristin at work!


This is her first job that happens to be the same building that I had my first job in! It used to be a Dairy Queen! She gave me 20% off of my yummy ice cream with lots of toppings! I ate it in the car since I brought Jexi with me. She liked the strawberries.


Sunday I read the Hunger Games practically all day. I've read this and the second one, Catching Fire, before but the third book of the series is coming out in August and I needed to refresh my memory! They are such great books. I highly recommend them!


On Sunday night I went over for dinner at my parents house for Father's Day and played a couple games. (Our family is big on games.) As I was gathering my things to leave, I hadn't put Jexi back on her leash yet and my dad opened the door. Normally that's not a big deal because she stays next to me all the time, but she bolted. I threw my stuff down and got down low and called for her to come back and she just looked at me. I started to panic. I went out on the patio just in case she didn't want to come back in the house, but would come to me. It worked- she came back. But it scared me to death. I keep hearing all these stories about the coyotes in my parents neighborhood. They come snatch up little dogs like Jexi right in front of the owners. Or a car could have hit her in the street or she could have just kept running. So many things could have happened so I was obviously so relieved when I got her back. But it really shook me up. My dad felt really bad, but it really wasn't his fault. None of us thought she would run. I just love her so much and would be absolutely catatonic if something like that happened to her.

BUT....something that DID cheer me up was this package I got in the mail!!


April from Dot...dot...dot... hosted a Girly Summer Swap and I thought it sounded fun so I signed up! I was matched up with Amanda from Life According to Amanda and you can check out what I got her too! Thank you so much Amanda! I am wearing the earrings today and they are so cute! I put the jelly beach candle in my bathroom and the lotion smells so good! The gum looks delicious and I put the scented thingamajig in our closet. :-) And I thing the other thing is a loofah?? I have never seen one like that before! I'm excited to use it! Thank you! Mondays are always rough, but wearing my cute new earrings is brightening my day!

Happy Monday!

P.S- Michael is working up the courage to do a guest post on here sometime soon! I'm excited!

We had similar weekends! Haha, I got my oil changed and I also bought cute dresses @ Ross. =)

If you're into swapping, I just got into www.swapbot.com -- some of it is lame, but some of it is fun! I've gotten some neat stationary and postcards.

Lourie said...

Hmmm...what did I do this weekend??? Hahaha. Sad that I don't remember. Either that or it was just boring. Haha. I am glad Jexi didn't go far. I always cringe when I see a loose dog. Other than that scare, it sounds you had a good weekend.

Would love to see a post from Michael!

sounds like fun. i loveeee massages, but they are so expensive i rarely get them! your girl sounds like she did a great job. i'm soo picky about my massuse and don't go back if they didn't do exactly what i like. :) i'm curious about what she told you about sleeping on your side... i sleep like that and my shoulders are constantly sore.

Jen said...
