* After being disturbed by Kitty from 4:45-5:45 Saturday morning, I went back to sleep after feeding her. She joined us in bed to take a nap. I needed to be out of the house at 9:15 to get gas in my car and drive 20 minutes to pick up my sister-in-law at 10:00. We were driving to Sonoma to do a college campus tour! I didn't set an alarm because I was sure I would wake up in plenty of time. Wrong. My phone rang and I was sure it was only 7:30. I talked to my mom, who was surprised I was still sleeping. When I hung up with her and checked the time, I saw that it was 8:50. WHAT? I kicked into Superhero mode. I showered, ate breakfast, got dressed, filled up my tank and made it to my in-laws house at exactly 10:00. I am damn good.

*We walked around the campus for about an hour before it started to get a  little warm out. It was chilly when we got there so I wore black skinny jeans and comfortable flats. It didn't stay chilly for long. Luckily, the campus isn't huge so we saw 95% of it in an hour. We ate lunch at In-n-Out and stopped by Sift for a cupcake. After getting back into town and dropping Miranda off, I stopped by my mom's to pick up some Pampered Chef stuff and drove home. I was tired!

*Saturday night, I went to Redbox to rent a movie. I got "Wanderlust." It wasn't the best movie around but it had some HILARIOUS parts. If you like crude humor, rent it. I actually wouldn't mind seeing it again.

*Sunday morning, I woke up and went to the gym. I was the only person there for a few minutes which was amazing. If you know me, you know that I can't stand a crowded gym. When I'm rich, I will build my own gym and no one else will be allowed to use it. Not even my husband. We are rich-he can build his own.

*After a 60 minute workout on the eliptical, I decided to go outside and do some manual labor. I washed my car, pulled/shoveled weeds and trimmed up our fast growing rosemary bush. This was all back-to-back-to-back-to-back. It was fairly warm by the time I was done and my arms were shaking from exhaustion. I overdid it big time. I also had mud and dirt on my shoulders and chest so that was gross but it showed that I worked real hard!

*After a visit with my in-laws to celebrate my FIL's birthday, I settled into bed with my ipad and pulled up my HBOGO app. They usually have some interesting documentaries available so I scrolled through and decided on "The Loving Story." This is the tale of Richard and Mildred Loving, the mixed race couple who married and were arrested for breaking the anti-miscegenation law in Virginia. They fought the law and they won. It is only 78 minutes and I highly recommend it. I was in tears throughout it and at the end, had a hard time pulling myself together. Can you believe it was only 54 years ago that mixed race marriage was against the law? And Alabama only did away with their anti-miscegenation laws in 2000? The documentary is a beautiful story of love occurring during a time filled with hate. I think in 54 years, we will see a documentary profiling the relationships of same sex marriage and I hope the outcome in the same. Let love win.

*The last day of a weekend is always sad. So most of my Sunday's are spent uttering "ugh, I don't want it to be Monday." The end of a three day weekend is just as sad but have a glimpse of happiness as we wake up and it is already Tuesday! I'm trying to have a positive attitude. I'm failing. I want to go back to sleep.

*Moving into the vague-blogging section of this post: I have some exciting things in motion right now. The end result is yet to be determined but I'm hoping for some good news over the next couple of weeks. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me please. Thank you.

*I asked on Facebook page but think I'll make a note here as well: I'm considering doing a house tour via photos and video soon. I'm obsessed with Movie Maker and have fun playing around with it so I think I'll record some footage of our home and make a little home movie. Literally. A movie of our home. Maybe I can get some decorating ideas out of it!

I hope everyone has a fast and easy 4 day work week!
