Memorial Day

It is Memorial Day!  A huge THANK YOU to all of our soldiers who fight for and protect our freedom in the good ol' USA.  We are so blessed!  What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?  Here is a peek at what we did:

Saturday

 

On Saturday, we had some gift cards that needed using.  First stop was Noodles Italian Kitchen.  (Pictures from their Facebook page - check it out!  Noodles Italian Kitchen)  This restaurant has dim lighting so it is really romantic - especially when you finish your meal sharing a warm slice of chocolate cake with a side of creamy ice cream drizzled in hot fudge.  Oh trust me, it was GOOD!!




Noodles has the most delicious fresh baked bread!  They also have really fresh and crisp salads.





I had a pizza - I think it was this one.  Mmmm I get hungry just thinking about all this food!






Next we headed to Hobby Lobby and I used the remaining balance on an old gift card on this lovely piece of decor:
And then we stopped by a car wash and, of course, Wal-Mart.  I was really needing a planner to keep track of all the craziness going on in my life, so I picked up this:
And the rest of the evening was spent watching Lion King!!  We love watching Disney movies together.  

Sunday

 

On Sunday, we attended church in the morning and evening.  Between services, Ben fired up the grill for some turkey sausage, chicken, and hamburgers.  



We made enough to eat off of through Monday so we wouldn't have to cook again.  Good thinkin', huh?  Haha!  The rest of the evening after church services were spent watching more Disney movies.  Fun times - just relaxing time with me and my honey!

Monday

 

Of course the day has really only just begun, but I got up early to spend some time with the doggies, kitties, and chickens to share with you all.  
Little missy prissy sassy pants.

My favorite chicken.  He needs a name!
Mrs. Potts and her brood, growing so fast.
Someone is obviously really excited about having a day off!!
Doggy racing!
If that ain't a grin I don't know what is!

Nope, she's not growling!  That is a smile!

Those are some happy pups right there.


One of my favorite photo subjects...

"Get out of my photo shoot!!"

I am not really sure what we will do the rest of the day... probably something really fun like cleaning up horse poop and working on my medical reports.  We had such a relaxing time all weekend that today I want to spend my "time off" getting caught up.  Who knows if that will actually happen though.  Ha!  Hope you all have a lovely rest of your day!

  3. Noodle's looks yummy! Cory and I will have to try it next time we're in Fayetteville! Sounds like you and the hubby had a wonderful weekend together. Those are the best kind...just spending time with one another. I love your collies. We used to have one when I was little named Fritz. He was great. And hmmm...a name for your fave chicken...well, he looks like a Henry to me. :)

    1. Yes, do try it! You won't regret it.

      I do like Henry! I love "old fashioned" names for chickens. :)

      Collies are the favorite breed of dog, just because they are so sweet and great family dogs. We have always had a collie around since I was a little kid, so I have lots of great memories that involve collies!
