weekend tidbits

i woke up this morning and thought to myself, 
"how on earth is it monday?"
i mean, most weekends fly by, 
but this one was crammed with so much, 
it left me wondering which way was up

we hit up a friend's garage sale
and welcomed a new vintage camera to our collection
plus we scored a giant bag of super cute "big girl" clothes for the girlies

we visited with family who just came back from holidays, 
and hosted a huge family dinner that night, 
complete with baseball steak, bacon wrapped scallops and shrimp
(go big or go home, right?)

we watched star wars, episode 2 
(this is my first time watching the series, 
we've been going through them, one by one, over the past couple of weeks after the girls go to bed
i had no choice in the matter - apparently it's an important step in my pop culture education!)

i edited a whackload of pictures, 
while listening to this fun song
...over and over and over again
then we topped it all off by going to a long-time friend's wedding yesterday
and as i sat there, enjoying the beautiful details that she thoughtfully put together for her special day
i realized that it was exactly six years ago, to the day,
that the bride and i were sitting in a starbucks, sipping on our coffees,
killing time between a mutual friend's wedding ceremony and reception

we talked about our own future weddings,
and wondered who we'd end up marrying, 
when we'd be engaged,
and what our special day would look like someday

and now, here we are - all "grown up" and married
i just couldn't help but think of the Lord's goodness and faithfulness
and how He's got such great things planned for us
how He demonstrates His love and provision
with each day that unfolds in our lives, 
in the little things as well as the big things
there's evidence of grace everywhere!
i was just so encouraged by that thought,
that i just had to share with you guys.
i hope it leaves you feeling blessed and grateful
as we kick off the week

p.s. congrats, #dallasandmeray!
