Another exciting weekend!

Ok, in case you haven't noticed after reading my post last week, I love my Friday afternoons and my weekends! I am really looking forward to this afternoon and all that my weekend plans will bring! First of all, I asked my coworkers to participate in a Potluck Lunch and we had a great response from almost everyone. Then, I'm going to my close friend K's house to hang out and help her unpack in her beautiful new home. We have another close friend who'll join us for awhile, but K and I will keep each other company through husband and I have quite a lot planned for Saturday. We are celebrating our fourth wedding anniversary and we are going to recreate our first date! I'm so excited!!! In addition to dining at the same restaurant we went to over five years ago, we are going to the pub we had an after dinner beer at, then walking over to the Starbucks where we had coffee before we wrapped up our date. My husband had me laughing so hard that night that I was crying and people were looking at me strangely. We didn't care, though. It was a blast!

Before we get started on our date Saturday night we plan to renew our vows. I'm EXTREMELY excited about this sentiment but kind of nervous about it. I don't know why, Hubby and I are very close and are able to talk about anything and everything. Perhaps it's because I'm going to have to try really hard not to cry. Hubby is reenlisting in the military soon so this anniversary is somewhat extra special to me. I know there will be many more to come in the future, but none will be quite like this one as we prepare for him to transfer to various locations around the world. I've been working on my vows for two weeks so I'm hoping I haven't forgotten anything poignant that I know I would want to say. I feel like I've covered all the bases, but I just hate to goof it up.

On a lighter note about Saturday, my son will be playing in his third football game. I'm really looking forward to watching him play again. His "tard" of a coach didn't play him very much until the end of the game last week which was a disappointment for all of us, so we're hoping he gets more game time. The coaches plan wasn't successful...we got I'm hoping he rotates his players better giving everyone a shot to contribute equally. I'll keep you posted! (no pun intended!)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I'll post again after Saturday's events and let you know how everything transpired!
