I love weekends!

I love that today is Friday! I'm working only a half day today, then I'm meeting my mom and my sister at my townhouse and we're going to go crazy - shopping and decorating and deciding on paint colors. Eventually, it will be a warm, cozy place to be. Now it's just a cozy place to be with WHITE WALLS EVERYWHERE! So they're helping me to remedy that problem. Don't get me wrong, I can likely do it myself, but why would I choose to do that when I have two immediate relatives who have degrees in interior redesign?!?! :) So that is my tonight.

Tomorrow is the best, though .. I get to take my niece and nephew, Lexie and Zachary, for the day and I am sooooo excited! It has been really weird coming home to an empty house, as opposed to when I used to live with them and came home to them eating dinner. The second I would walk through the door they would both yell, "Auntie Kami!!" and come give hugs and kisses, as if I hadn't just seen them that morning! It's a routine that I miss to no end, so I am thoroughly excited that I get to see them!

Sunday is church, likely followed by some time with Monte and the kids. I love that my Sundays aren't planned out (beyond church) and I can figure out what I'm going to do when the time comes. All I really know is that my weekend is going to be great and I am really looking forward to it!

This coming Thursday (the 24th) is Monte's birthday, so I'm headed out there for the celebration with the family. I'm going to leave work a couple of hours early so that I can get out there and bake his birthday cake with Claire. She loves to bake, and I love that baking is something we can share because we have such a great time when we do! We're also in charge of dinner that night, as I just couldn't make Monte prepare his own birthday dinner. That being said, his request was steak on the grill - uh oh! I can't grill worth anything, so I realized I was stuck - until Monte came up with the fabulous idea of inviting his parents over for the celebration and asking his dad to grill the steaks. Fabulous! Not only do I not have to worry about me being the one to ruin dinner (hehe!), but now I get to meet his parents as well, and I am totally looking forward to it. It's going to be a great evening, with dinner, cake, presents and lots of time with the family. I love birthdays - this one is going to be great!

Soooo .... what's new with all of you?!
