Weekend & Wreath

I went to Boerne this weekend to visit my mom. It's her birthday next weekend but Tim and I are going to a wedding and to Carolyn's baptism, so we won't be able to be there for the actual day. We had a girl's weekend because Sonny (my stepdad) was out of town and Tim stayed here in Waco.

Friday we went and ate at Carrabba's - my favorite restaurant! Saturday we went shopping at La Cantera, went to Hobby Lobby, and got pedicures as well as ate at a good restaurant in Leon Springs called The Grill. Today we went and ate breakfast and then I came back to Waco. My mom wanted a Wii and Wii Fit for her birthday, so that's what Sonny got her but we got it sent to our apartment so she wouldn't know about it. I brought it for her this weekend. The Wii Fit is really cool! I just did a basic intro and today she did the whole first training program. She really likes it.

Tim ran in a 5k here in Waco (CASA Speak Up For Kids 5k) with his friend Aaron and one of Aaron's friends. The three of them got 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in their age group! He got a plaque, which was better than the prizes last year. Last year I won 1st in my age group and the prize was a baby shoe. I obviously couldn't run it in because of my knee - which, by the way, is actually getting better and I was able to do a little exercise this past week in physical therapy and it didn't hurt! I will post a picture of Tim's plaque as soon as I see it.

When my mom and I went to Hobby Lobby, I got a wreath and some ornaments to decorate it. I had seen a wreath in the Pottery Barn catalogue that I liked but it was $99 and I decided I could make one that I liked even better for less money. Here is the final product!

It has a big space at the top because my mom ordered Tim and I this really pretty wreath holder from Pottery Barn that says "The Thornes" but it hasn't come in yet. I don't really already have it hanging on the door. I just put it there for the picture!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I am in finals lockdown mode now, so I've got to get to studying!
