Sweet Weekends


Legions of Honor, Shriners
My husband likes to make the bed while I'm still sleeping in it. He likes to vacuum, sweep and iron. He is an infantry man and the most gentle father with both of my boys. He's a Master Mason and as of this weekend, now a Shriner. Within the Shriners, he chose the club Legion of Honor... a unit dedicated to all veterans and active duty military. If you're familiar with the Shriners you may know these people have huge hearts and they give generously, they also know how to celebrate.  Friday night and Saturdays celebrations left us in repair mode!

Later that evening Lucas was asked to throw the first pitch in our hometown baseball game for military appreciation, it was an exciting offer but Lucas put his family first and declined. There are not many chances for him to choose family over Army! And in our last few weekends here there's nothing more important! Birthday celebrations and Fathers Day was the focus to the rest of our weekend. My oldest is at his dads for the next few weeks so lil' Landon is getting all of our attention!

Our weekend was packed with summertime fun, good drinks and eats, and tons of family and friends. Aren't those just the best parts of summer? And, of course we squeezed in a good run and a strong workout too :)

There was a VA bloggers meet up Sunday night that I missed out on, I'm most excited to see the girls posts and catch up on all that fun. I hope there's another one before our move or maybe my first blogger meet up will be with the Colorado girls!!

Hope you all had a FAB weekend!!
Any True Blood fans? Did you catch last nights premier?
We loved it!

I'm so sad you are going to move away before I get a chance to meet you in real life!!! I can't believe how close your move is.

The perfect weekend. I can't believe that y'all's move is coming so quick friend. And I am going to have to look up the Shriners. I love learning about the military from all you awesome ladies and the amazing things you and your little family are going through. Hope your week is off to a great start pretty lady.

So this comment is late but I've been trying to catch up on the blogs I follow. It sounded like a fabulous weekend! I had an amazing father's day too. Hope this one is just as good!
