Matt and I had the BEST weekend!! We spent the majority of it in Shreveport, LA with friends and had a fantastic time! We drove to Katie and Clay's house Friday night and ordered in pizzas. It was so relaxing and just what I needed after such a chaotic week of traveling. Saturday morning we went to breakfast at Strawn's (a hole in the wall and SO delicious). Emily and Jack drove in from Monroe that afternoon and we all got cleaned up and had drinks before heading to dinner at the Oyster Bar.
Love my sis-in-law

Thanks for hosting us Clay...

Sweet Katie and Clay - we can't wait for Annah Kate's arrival in a month!

After the yummy dinner at Oyster Bar, we headed down to the Boardwalk for a drink and met up with Clay and Jeni. It was a great night! Sunday, we slept in and then went back down to the Boardwalk to eat lunch and shop a little bit before heading home.

We always have such a great time visiting Clay and Katie and it made the weekend even better because Jack and Emily came in town! Matt and I drove back last night so that we could spend today getting ready for the rest of the week. It's been a VERY productive day!! I now have a clean house, a mowed lawn, a kitchen full of groceries (and I squeezed in time for a run too.) We have burgers on the grill and are ready to start another week.
Today I am very mindful of all the men and women who have served our country. My grandfather was in WWII and will be 91 this October. For the individuals who gave the ultimate sarifice, their lives, a "thank you" will never be enough. May God bless all those who fight for us every day!
Hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday weekend!!
