Happy Monday!

Monday, June 8, 2009

Okay, this weekend was pretty boring.
 Sorry Mom.
I'm putting that in because my mother reads my blog and I spent most of Saturday with her.  
That part of the day was good.  

The rest was boring.  

Michael was away at his camping trip.  The Colonel was still on his exercise.  
So what's a girl to do when she really has nothing else to do?

She goes shopping!

But not alone!  
My mom, Olivia and I headed down to the mall and spent some time looking for bargains.  I was able to buy 2 t-shirts.  For some reason when I want to shop, I hardly find anything!  

But then we were hungry.  
All that shopping, we needed nourishment!

And fast food would not work!

We decided on Olive Garden...I haven't been there in 11 years.
Yes I said 11 years.

It was good!

We got home around 3:00.  That's when the day got boring.

Olivia had me drive her up to a nearby town to a county fair that a bunch of her friends were going to.  
So I pretty much had the rest of the day by myself.  
I thought I would really enjoy this...I thought I would get so much done...
I thought I would lay on the couch and watch TV...

I thought...

Here's hoping next Saturday is much better...
It better be...
It's our wedding anniversary!

I'm off to spend some time with all of my wonderful blogging friends!
Enjoy your day!


  1. Thanks for visiting. Sometimes boring is just restful :) You and my daughter will share the same anniversary! Hope you have a wonderful week and an EXCITING anniversary--and good weather for all of us!

  2. I love your new look!
    Happy Monday and Anniversary to you!
    Have a great day!

  3. I LOVE Olive Garden! That sounds really good about now!

    So Happy Almost Anniversary! :) I bet next Saturday won't be so boring! :)

    Have a great week!

  4. Oh how I long for a boring day...
    Funny how much the ones we love fill up our days...we seem to not notice til they are off busy by themselves...

    Happy Anniversary...hope you do something romantic!


  5. I LOVE the new look of your blog. So pretty...

    Your comment had me laughing girl at my blog,
    My hubby just calmly said, "No, that's how they talk when they're together."...LOVED IT!

  6. Boring is fabulous. I spent the day in the yard and had an absolutely wonderful time.... Oh Happy Anniversary early to you.... How many years?


  7. Happy Monday, Lois!!
    and..... Happy, Happy Anniversary!!
    I really should try Olive Garden
    again.... I haven't gone in about 6 or 7 years!

    Blessings~ Jen

  8. Sounds like a busy weekend to me.
    I love the new look. Just perfect!!!
    Happy new week to you Girl!

  9. The new background is so pretty. You need to hang out with my family. Our eldest always chooses OG for meals. It is a standing joke, because when we would visit her, I would only want to eat in places that we didn't have at home. We almost always ended up at OG.

    Your anniversary better be loads of romantic fun. My vote is for something special and stuff that you can't share on your blog. ;)

  10. Thanks for the birthday wish. :) And happy EARLY Anniversary!

  11. I just love the new look of your blog. It's soo pretty. I'm sorry you had a boring weekend. It's tough with a hubby in the service. I appreciate all that the two of you do to keep our country safe. Happy anniversary a little early :>)
    p.s. I would love to meet you one day too :>)

  12. I hope you have a wonderful anniversay weekend. I used to be where you are. My hubby worked long, long hours. Now it looks like he will retire. So we are enjoying so many things that we didn't have time for before.

  13. I love your new look!! I hope you have a great week!

  14. Love Olive Garden! Love the endless soup and salad! Sounds real good about now! Happy Anniversary!

  15. i don't know, the olive garden and shopping sounds like a 5 star day to me!!
