After a tough week, I had one of the best and most relaxing weekends I’ve had in a while. I am so thankful for that. I needed it.
Saturday was a cleaning day. S worked all day, and I played the housewife role. I cleaned and did laundry, and made sure that I had some dinner ready for S when he got home. As soon as he got home, I had to leave to go babysit. I think he was happy because he was able to get some time to himself!
I babysat for the 3 sweetest girls, and spent the second half of my night reading my new book on my Nook in the family’s beautiful home. What could be better?
Sunday brought a long morning drive to northern Massachusetts to spend the day at their annual BBQ Festival at Wachusett Mountain. It was a foggy, rainy, miserable 1½-hour drive up there. The whole entire time, I just wanted S to turn around.
I’m glad he didn’t!
It was cold and cloudy, but it was so beautiful. As soon as we got there, we bypassed all of the craft and food vendors and headed straight for the “Sky Ride”. This was basically just a ride up the mountain on their ski lift. I was so super scared. I don’t do heights, roller coasters, tall buildings, elevators…. Yea….Okay…. I’m a scaredy cat! I admit it!
Anyway, with S… all of those anxious feelings evaporate (another reason why I married him!!). He held on to me the entire time, and all of the butterflies I had when I first met him came right back and stayed in my stomach for the rest of the day. It was the greatest feeling in the world.
Next came, a pulled pork sandwich, cole slaw, corn bread, fudge, some new scarves and I’ll let the pictures tell the rest!

|On the Ski Lift!|
|It was absolutely freezing!|
|I was super duper proud of myself.|
|This is not altered in any way. This was the scariest part. |
This was at the summit where we started riding into a cloud.
It got super cold, and foggy.
|I had a pulled pork sandwich with corn bread.|
S had a brisket sandwich with cole slaw.
|I could live off this stuff. As for the hubs, not so much. |
More for me!

|We enjoyed some fudge after dinner that we purchased at the Festival.|
Chocolate Marshmallow and Reeses Peanut Butter Cup!
An all around instragrAMAZING weekend!! Hope you all enjoyed it as well.
Usually I am a little more somber on a Monday morning… but this Monday morning is quite different. I’m getting paid to sit home and watch Hurricane Sandy blow by. No work for me today. I’m happy… but I’m also happy having electricity… that I hope, doesn’t go out for too long.
Speaking of… if electricity does go out, I obviously won’t be able to post, but promise to be right back to business as soon as power is restored!
To all my readers hunkering down for this hurricane… stay safe!
