weekend recap & mom update.

Happy first day back to work from long weekend friends. If you anything like me you're having a hard time wrapping your brain around why Tuesday feels like Monday.

I hope everyone had lovely weekends full of summertime bliss and fall anticipation.

I spent most of my weekend watching football and being thrilled with all 3 of my fave teams winning their first games of the season.

Friday night we went fall clothing shopping and got Mr. A some new dress clothes and me a few more tops to wear to work since I'm doing fine in the jeans dept. and pretty good in the dress slacks dept. I could stand to add a few more skirts but we do our shopping once every 4 months so skirts will have to wait until January.

Saturday we were up early to do laundry before the football game we wanted to watch came on at 2:30 we got home 30 minutes before the game started and spent the rest of the afternoon watching games, reading and in general being couch potatoes it was fabulous. Late Saturday afternoon I went to CVS and made the switch with my make up from summer to fall. I went dark with my lip gloss and switched over to my purples and greens for eye shadow and switched to a creamy rose colored blush and some dark nail polish I even got adventurous and picked up a steely grey polish since all the fashion forward people say that it will be big this fall. I love the darker fall nail colors because they look great with my super short nails. I decided to try the grey out over the long weekend and at first I thought I didn't like it but it's growing on me.

Sunday we had lunch after church with friends and had a blast. Sunday evening we had a cookout with my family it was great because I got to see my big brother I only get to see about 4 times a year because he is a truck driver and I got to play with my favorite great niece (yes you read that correct) great niece Madalynn she's 5 months old and the most adorable blue eyed baby I've ever seen. I'm terrified to admit that holding her and playing peek a boo and seeing Mr. A hold her and play too made me want one.

Yesterday we lounged around in the morning and afternoon and then headed over to our friends house for food and games I learned how to play Sequence and thoroughly enjoyed it when the girls team beat the boys team.

I have decided I need to take more pics we had such a blast this entire weekend and I have no pics to prove how much fun we had.

As for mom's update she's doing well she's on her last of the 4 rounds of chemotherapy today is the re-schedule of the first treatment she wasn't able to take so when she's finished with it she will be done with Chemo and we'll be meeting with her team on October 1st to find out what our next steps will be. So thank you all so much for continuing to lift her up in your prayers it means the world to me and I have to believe that she is doing so well because of all the people praying for her.

She has some scans on Friday and I get to go be with her for those and hopefully we'll hear some positive news on the 1st.

Later Alligators..

Mrs. A
