Beautiful Weekend



Another busy weekend, filled with lots of good times and trying to enjoy every minute left of summer. It was filled with beautiful weather; open windows, blue skies and cool nights. We spent time with friends Saturday evening, sitting around their beautiful pool, long into the night.

Sunday afternoon brought another beautiful day, perfect for the neighborhood baby shower, I was invited to attend. One of my neighbor's daughters recently had a baby and is living with her, so we were happy to welcome the cute little boy to the world. It was nice catching up with my neighbors and we had a delicious lunch of chicken salad and fruit. As we gathered on her pretty deck to watch the guest of honor open presents, I couldn't help but think how lucky I am to have these wonderful friends, who just happen to be my neighbors.

By late afternoon, we were in the car, headed to East Lansing to take Melissa for a quick dinner and do a car swap with her. We went to a typical college restaurant with great burgers and beer. Nothing too fancy, but full of that college town atmosphere. Since my husband and I met at MSU, there are always memories of our time there to enjoy, as we drive around campus.

Hope you had a beautiful weekend too and happy Monday!



  1. Thanks for visiting this morning Vicki!

    Sounds like a perfect weekend and I'm glad to hear you are enjoying the last bit of summer. That pool at the top looks so inviting and sounds like you had a perfect end to the weekend with your daughter. My husband and I have lots of fun memories visiting the kids in college and dinning at the college diners.

    Happy Monday! xxL
