We had a fabulous weekend together! It started off Friday with Anniversary massages at one of my favorite places to go, Rock Haven! It's like a little piece of heaven in the country! One word: Amazing.

After our massages we went into town and had Italian for supper, and then met up with my cousin's family for drinks and to listen to some live music. Great night!

Saturday, we started off the day having breakfast at the hotel, and then haircuts. I got about 3-4" cut off, which is a lot considering how long my hair was. It's still got some length, but shorter than what I've been used too in several months. I love it though for Spring & Summer, plus my hair grows super fast! We then headed to my {small} hometown to visit with family, and 2 very special visitors from France. Quick fill in: Mirelle & Marteen were our families guests from France. Mirelle was a foreign exchange student my grandparents hosted, the same year my dad was a senior, the graduated together. This is her & Marteen's 2nd time to visit since then, they are best friends from growing up together. Although I've met them both before, I don't remember as I was a little baby then, thinking it was in the late 80's. They are staying with my grandparents for another week, and then they will be flying back to their home in France. So Saturday we visited with them, the guys shot trap, and then we ate a wonderful BBQ that was catered. Saturday night, D & I, and my brother, Ashley, and cousins all hit the town; they were having a street dance!

Sunday, my bestie Ashley (brothers gf), made us an Anniversary Breakfast. It was so thoughtful of her, we enjoyed it! Then we loaded everything up, made our rounds to visit and say goodbye, and then off we went. We stopped and got some plants for a small garden we plan on planting this year, some meat to grill on our new (new to us) grill/smoker, and then had our anniversary supper. Dustin filled me in on some sad/disappointing news that somehow our top tier from our wedding cake couldn't be found. I was super bummed, as I was looking forward to eating it with my husband. So at 9:30pm, D's parents showed up with a chocolate cake for us to enjoy, which cheered me up. Very thankful for them!

So all in all we had a great weekend, and looking forward to the year to come!! :)

What's for Dinner printable cards

One of my best friends father in-law passed away recently, and whenever a close friend loses a loved one I like to take them over some food and/or paper goods. You can also take meals over for new parents, when someone is ill, or just because. For this I have created some bright & cheery FREE printables for you that you can fill out on your own, one for dinner (can be used for lunch or supper), and one for breakfast. Then you can attach them to your food that you are taking over, and they won't have to remember what it is or how to reheat/cook it, this is especially nice when things are frozen to be cooked later.

These 4x6 printables are downloadable for you to use for FREE, print them out on some white or colorful paper, and viola!

If you have a group of people that want to take care of someones meals for a period of time, check out Take Them A Meal. I've used it a couple of times when we had a group of us wanting to take new parents meals, but we wanted people to sign up on specific days. Worth checking into!
