farewell to another wonderful weekend.  and just like that, a new week is here.  hubby and i made the most of every moment.  we did some friday night grocery shopping and baking.  then on saturday, i headed off to help at a bridal shower while ben had some boy's time and took in a guy movie.  then, we joined up again in the afternoon for some quick cleaning up...then it was off to dinner with ben's sister and her hubby at windsor [yes, again...it just never gets old].  after all that, we took it easy on sunday and spent the afternoon watching a western and catching up on laundry.  capped off with a sushi date night.  it was a pretty great few days.  over much too soon.  but, another weekend is always right around the corner.  until then, here are some of our favorite snaps. here's to a fabulous, fresh week!
