A Perfect Weekend

I'm not big on the whole weekend recap posts but I have to write about our Labor Day Weekend since it was pretty flawless. It consisted of the following:

-Perfect weather Every. Day.

-Saturday was the first day of bowhunting season, so Kristian woke up at 4am to go shoot his first deer. He was home back in bed with deer meat in the fridge and a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte for me by 9am.

-Saturday afternoon we headed to my in-laws beach house for relaxation on the pier and got to watch Kristian catch a huge sting-ray (he let it go). There were 6 adults, 4 kids and 5 dogs so definitely a full house!

*hanging out on the pier*

*partaking in a few adult beverages*

*helping his sister try to reel in the stingray*

*taking over the reel to finish the job*

I love this picture of him on the beach in the sunlight

*continuing to reel in the stingray*


-We had a great dinner on the deck with the whole family.

-Followed by S'mores on the beach

-And Kristian helping his nephew set off fireworks on the beach

-Sunday we came home so I could watch my ECU Pirates win 51-49 with an amazing touchdown pass with 5 seconds left! Incredible!

-Monday I went shopping and was able to buy a pair of heels, a belt, a sweater dress, 2 long sleeve shirts and 3 sweaters all for about $100! I love F21. Then I cleaned out and re-organized my closet.

-Monday night Kristian went to the VA Tech game at FedEx Field and I stayed home, got some Chinese takeout and watched my trashy reality t.v. Unfortunately Tech didn't win which would have capped off the perfect weekend but at least he got to be at the game and see his team play in person from box seats no less!

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!
