Weekend Update

Today, I'm linking up for weekend update. What an easy way to share the weekend and to find new blogs. 

Jeremy and his dad are suckers for finding what they call a good deal on trucks. I seriously could not tell you how many trucks have come and gone in the 4 years I've lived in California. Jeremy is always researching all different kinds of trucks; Ford, Dodge, Chevy, Tundra, gas, diesel, etc. They buy something and say "this truck is the ticket" and then it turns out not to be the ticket. Jeremy has flown to Montana to pick up a truck and drive it back here, they've had trucks shipped here from Florida, New York, Wisconsin. It's an obsession! So... they found the new "ticket" in Southern California and Jeremy was nominated to fly down Saturday to pick it up. Needless to say, our Friday was very low-key since he had to get up at 4:30 AM to get ready to go to the airport. 

Since Jeremy was gone for most of the day, I called my friend Lacey to see if she wanted to go to Target and of course she did. Neither one of us really needed anything, but who doesn't love going to Target for no reason. It took all my willpower to steer clear of the clothes, accessories and shoes. While walking through the food aisles, I realized that wine & bread are in the same aisle. This really excited me and I said (rather loudly), "Wine & bread in the same aisle?!? Jesus was here!!!". Lacey and I laughed so hard for about 5 minutes. 
     Jeremy's mom had knee surgery on Friday, so Saturday evening I cooked dinner for my in-laws. Jeremy finally made it back with the truck around 7 and we had leftovers for dinner and relaxed on the couch. 

It was a gorgeous 85 and sunny day, so we decided to head to Sonoma for lunch at The Red Grape, a nice walk around the square and some wine and cheese tasting. It was a perfect afternoon. Sunday evening, we played cards with Jeremy's parents. 

It was a nice, relaxing weekend. But... I'm looking forward to some party rocking with Randy & Christina (brother-in-law and sister-in-law) this weekend. They will be here Wednesday night - Sunday afternoon and we have some fun stuff planned. I am so excited!!! 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  


  1. sounds like a great weekend! Target is amazing, but sooo dangerous! i am proud of you for staying away from the clothes and accessories!

  2. If Jesus was there then it's true, he is all around us. On wine and spirits.

  3. I just spent my lunch hour in Target picking up things, talking myself out of it, and putting it back. That's pretty much how every trip I take to Target goes! I envy you for living so close to Sonoma, your Sunday sounded pretty darn awesome!

  4. i will find any and all reason to go to target.
    fruit snacks sales especially.

  5. Definitely love wandering around Target, even if I have no real reason of being there! Also, wine and cheese tasting? Sounds like my kind of weekend!

  6. Sounds like a nice, relaxing weekend! I love Target. I go in there just for the heck of it sometimes and of course, I always end up finding something I "need"! Guess who got a miniature dachshund puppy this weekend?!

  7. I wish I could just get up and walk around Sonoma! Not fair! I need to come visit!!! And when I saw your IG picture from Target I died!! You are a mess! ;)

  8. sounds nice :) love your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
    Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

  9. Target is such a dangerous place. So dangerous. They practically GIVE their shoes away. Then Andy tells me that the dining room is not my shoe closet. Who is this guy and why did I agree to live with him?

  10. Target picture is hilarious!!
    I saw it on IG and loved it!! Too funny, I am just getting caught up on all my blog weekend reading!!

  11. Sounds like a good weekend. Thanks for linking up with us :)
