This weekend was exhausting and I definitely need another day to recover! I think everyone would benefit from 3 day weekends ;)

Friday I headed home from my business trip and even though I'm not doing a whole lot while traveling for work, I get completely exhausted. After a quick nap, we headed out to see a movie! Stephen's company rented out a theater for everyone to see The Martian since they used Stephen's rockets in the movie. We had a lot of fun and we both really enjoyed the movie! It's not something I would keep on repeat, but it was a really good movie that definitely kept you thinking.

Saturday we woke up and headed out to the yard to begin work. We worked until the sun went down - we were exhausted and so sore. Thankfully, we were able to continue the work we started last weekend and ripped up all the bushes in the back yard. Now I need to figure out what we want to plant in those areas! We continued to geek out and watched a movie about the Challenger explosion Saturday night. It was very fascinating and we really enjoyed that movie. I loved it because I've heard a lot of details about why it failed in my quality class in college and in some quality training for work. The whole story is super interesting to me.

I even did some baking on Saturday night ;) 

After church on Sunday, we ran some errands (I looked for my sofa table at Homegoods and of course, couldn't find one) and then went straight to work on the house. I cleaned all the windows, Stephen cleaned the gutters and we did some other maintenance work. Needless to say, we worked outside all weekend and we are just pooped. Hopefully next weekend, we'll get to have a little more fun and not work hard all weekend.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!! Did y'all do anything exciting?

Linking up with Biana.
