I had the most amazing weekend with my family!! I was definitely ready to relax after school got out. Originally, my mom was thinking about coming up my way. She has been on the hunt for something to wear for my sister’s wedding coming up here in August. I had talked to my cousin Cally and she was planning on heading home for Memorial Weekend. I have not seen my cousin for five years, which is crazy because we used to be joint at the hip! It is crazy how life gets as we all grow older,it seems like we just can’t find the time to get together anymore. I need to be better about that! It’s funny though because even though we have not been together for so long it was like yesterday! Her brother Trevor was home too, along with her husband Stevo. We had a great night out catching up!
While I was home, I also got some quality time in with the rest of my family. I wish I were closer to them. My mom and Troy had planned on getting the pool up while I was home but that good old Kansas wind had another idea! We had a BBQ Saturday which turned out amazing! The weather was perfect by the time we started. I spent some time with my dad looking through old family photos.
Monday was a busy day for me, as I also got to have dinner with my Grandma and Grandpa Underhill. It was a special evening as they have been married for 35 years! It was so cute listening to them tell about how my grandpa asked her out and when they started dating. I cannot tell you how special their relationship is and how much I look up to their love!
On Monday my Grandma Bloesser and I spent the day planting flowers and moving around her “craft studio”. I had been wanting to plant a garden a few weeks ago but once we got down to it, I couldn’t believe how much $ goes into starting a garden. Unfortunately I have a card that I am trying to get paid off this summer so I decided not to do it.
I decided I wanted to makeover the flowerpot to something that was more geared towards both of us! I have not played with vinyl on my Cricut yet and decided it might be cool make it into a Nebraska Huskers watering can. Alex did not like the idea of me spray painting anywhere at the house. I was not planning on making a mess but I do know what a mess spray painting can be.
