lofty goals

It was a nice, mellow weekend at The Boyfriend's place. Since I had to work in town on Friday, I just stuck around here. And since The Boyfriend has had a few rough weeks at work, I packed up stuff for dinner and grabbed a few movies so we could settle in for a relaxing evening.

He had some obligations on Saturday and I had some free time for crafting. I made a fun little wreath for Christmas and got started on Christmas cards. I'm really trying to not cram everything in at the last minute this year. Seems like that's the only way I've been getting anything done lately. But I'm proud of my progress so far. I've even purchased a few gifts already.

On Saturday evening we went to a Two-step/Polka dance class. While we've both country danced before (hello, we live in Texas), we've never had official lessons together. Between that class and my obsession with Dancing With the Stars, I think it would be nice to take ongoing lessons. This was just a one-shot deal but it was fun!

On Sunday, The Boyfriend slept in while I made Potato Cheese Soup. Yummm. We watched some tv, he got some work done, I did some more crafting, we ran errands, went for a walk. While we had high hopes of getting a ton of things done (that fell by the wayside), I think it was a great weekend. It wasn't so much about running ourselves ragged or fulfilling social obligations. It was just about living. And doing so together. How nice is that...

That sounds like a near perfect weekend. Running yourself ragged is for the work week.

Hey, you know, we only live about 30 minutes from the Boyfriend. Feel free to call and set up dinner or something when your there for a weekend. Glad you had a good one.

Ah, the bliss of a 'regular' weekend. With nothing to do but whatever you WANT to do....which for me is usually nothing. ;)

Now that's what I call a relaxing weekend. But already tackling the cards? Definitely not waiting until the last minute, you.

Hubby and I met country dancing - but it has been a while since we've two-stepped around the floor! I miss it! I'm ready to take some ballroom lessons, as I am also obsessed with DWTS! I'm glad Brooke won tonight!
