The weekend report.

In my book, two things define summer: the hot steamy weather and weekends that are jam packed with events. Last weekend was definitely both of those! The temps were in the low 100's and we had 3 days of non-stop places to go and people to see.

We started off Friday morning signing a contract for our new house! I cannot even begin to express my excitement to get into our new place. It was built in 2009 but we will be the first owners. What's even more exciting, is that even though it's bit larger than our place now, we'll be paying about $200.00 less each month for the mortgage because of the type of loan we're getting and what we're putting down! I know a lot of people stress out about moving, but since my husband is a professional mover and packer, I'm really looking forward to the whole moving process. I'll share more about the house (and some pictures too) in the weeks to come!

Friday night we had a bunch of Jon's family roll into town for a weekend family reunion. We packed in as much activity humanly possible, going to the Zoo, out for dinner and dancing, doing as much as we could to show our family a good time. Sunday we had a big BBQ at our place, playing host to about 50 people through the evening. It was hot, but the evening cooled down quite nicely and I think I can speak for everyone when I say that it was a such a great time. I'm just now started to feel caught up on sleep since we didn't go to bed before midnight the entire weekend.
Can you spot me? I'm the tallest one!

I know summer hasn't officially started but it's sooo hot already and I have to admit I'm really looking forward to fall. I am definitely not a lover of summer. =)

Until next time!
