On Friday, while Michael was working on painting the exterior of our house (before and after pictures to come)...
I went out to Orange County to visit my friend Kristen and her son Sammy. They moved away at the same time we did so we try to get together when she is visiting her family in OC. It was so good to see her! We miss them!
Later on that day, since I was in town, I had dinner at my parents house (my grandma is living with them this summer too) that my grandma made and then went to Michaels parents house so they could spend a little time with Emily before I headed back home. I gotta spread the Emily-love! They sent us home with a ton of cookies and strawberries too. Yum :).
I put those strawberries to good use in my oatmeal the next morning...
The rest of the day I was cleaning the house and doing laundry. We had our friends Patrick and Ashley (they hadn't been out to see the house yet) and my brother Steven (who stayed with us for a few nights this weekend) over for dinner and then watched Act of Valor. I hadn't seen Pat and Ash in forever so it was really good to see them again too!
On Sunday morning we went to church (where I wore my first chunky necklace and Emily wore a new dress from her grandma)..
...and then came home and Michael and Emily both took naps. Then we headed over to our friends Brittany and Jaime's house for dinner. We love hanging out with them! They are some of our very best friends we have made while living here. Brit is the one who painted Emily's nursery too, btw. After dinner with them Michael had to go to work and I had to deal with a teething baby ;).
Anyway, so that's pretty much it for our weekend! We had a good one!
