a {pretty} perfect weekend

Our weekend was just about close to perfect as a weekend can get.  Saturday was one of the best days we’ve had in a long time, and Sunday was spent mostly at church.  On Saturday, we got to leisurely drink a pot of coffee, read, and we enjoy banana pancakes for breakfast.  Our day also included driving around and looking at some neighborhoods as we start to think about house shopping later this year.  We got to play tennis in our favorite park, and we tried a cool new restaurant with an awesome concept of healthy “fast food.” {The Mediterranean quinoa and the turkey & raspberry chipotle wrap are both pretty delightful.}

Every bit of Saturday was wonderful, but I especially loved getting to spend some time making thank you notes for us to send out this week.  Having a couple of hours to devote to sitting down and making some cards is such a treat, and I loved every minute of it on Saturday.  Now I’ve just got to finish writing the actual thank you notes and get these babies in the mail!

Sunday we were encouraged in our Sunday School class, as always, and our pastor outlined 2013 and what it will bring for our church.  We left so fired up for all of the awesome ways God is working at First Baptist Dallas and so excited and blessed to be a part of his exciting time!  Here’s a teaser: this guy will be speaking at our church in April!

Now that it is Monday evening of our first full work week after the holidays, we are slowly getting back into the swing of things.  I’m so thankful for such a great weekend as the perfect bookend to our holiday season.

I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
