Life is Sweet

Forrest and I like to be productive on the weekends, but this weekend we especially wanted to take advantage of this beautiful weather! Saturday we woke up, did our work out- Forrest did 30 miles on his bike and I ran 4 miles. Then we came home, showered, picked up LG and headed off to Hempstead. We spent the day out on the ranch with his family, watching the boys be little cowboys on their tractor. I can’t tell you how many times I just thought, “God thank you for giving me this day.” Maybe spending so much time in the hospital makes me realize how grateful I am to be alive and well.

Anyways, later that day, we went to Bellville (about 15 min away) to Forrest’s grandparents place to let the boys ride the horses. Aiden is going to show one of the horses in the Houston rodeo this week so he had to practice. For dinner, Uncle Tony brought home BBQ from the restaurant and we all ate and just hung out. 

Sunday, the weather was beautiful again. We tried to spend as much time outside as possible. We took LG to Petsmart and Home Depot, then came home, got some music playing outside, and did yard work. Forrest ran 8 miles earlier that day while I laid outside and got some sun. I have been in need of some color with this December tan I have!

After dinner that evening, we laid in the recliner together to watch Celebrity Apprentice- one of our favorite shows.  I know it makes more sense to lay on the couch together rather than squeeze in the recliner, but for some reason we like it. Well, we like it for a little while at least, until our arms have fallen sleep and we have to PEEL ourselves apart.

At the end of the weekend, I cannot help but think about how sweet life is and how happy Forrest and I are together. We have everything we need plus many more blessings.

Hope everyone else enjoyed their weekend as well. And have a great week! Yay for Spring Break!

O and here are a few recipes we enjoyed last week:
