My kind of Sunday Funday

We have had a CRAZY last few months. We have been to Yorkville (where Scott's parents live twice), Pekin once, I bought a car, went to a wedding, went to a graduation party, started a new job...needless to say, it has been exhausting! This weekend we FINALLY got a weekend at home. We had no plans. It was perfect.
Friday night we met some of Scott's friends at a new establishment that opened in our neighborhood, The Fountainhead. Great food, great people, great refreshments!
Saturday, Scott had to go do a little bit of work, but I had nothing to do. we laid around, took naps, caught up with each other and our crazy lives. We ordered delivery and just ate junk food and hung out.
Today was a PERFECT Sunday! Though I did have to do a few chores, they aren't as bad as it used to be. As I have spoken about before, I have a disdain of public laundromats. They get so crowded, and kids are running around and Im worried about knocking them over with my cart. But we found a better place, LOTS of washers and dryers, LOTS of spaces to fold clothes that each have their own TV so I can watch my Sunday Morning News shows. It is much better.
So I did laundry, then I went grocery shopping. I love cooking on Sunday's and making enough for us to have for most of the week. I'm usually our the door at 5:15am and don't get home until 6:30. Scott has class on Monday and Tuesday and works late on Wednesday, so we barely see each other from Sunday-Thursday, let alone have enough time to cook. Today I made a big thing of chicken salad (yum:)) and some turkey burgers with cranberries and brie. We had the turkey burgers for dinner tonight and we have leftovers. We should be able to get through those by Thursday and we have our menu ready for Thursday of stuffed peppers!
I went to the library and picked up another book I had on hold (I know have 4 books at home to read plus one on audio for my commute). I wish I would have gotten a little more cleaning done, but you know will wait. I got to spend some great time with my guy and got caught up on normalcy!
I will be the first to admit that I love to be busy. I love to have things on my calendar (I guess it makes me feel popular), but it is also nice to be a homebody and relax, recharge.
I am ready for an exciting week!!! (and what an exciting week it will probably be)!
