Hello! I hope everyone had an awesome Father's Day! I know we did, although now I'm so exhausted I feel I could sleep for a week! Ours was more of a Father's Day weekend than a single day. All the kids were home visiting for the week, so we had a lot of great meals and fun 'hanging out' at home before dad was available after a sixty hour work week to spend some quality time with us.
The party actually started on Friday when we met him at his place of employment and enjoyed a picnic lunch outside. Then Ashley and I went shopping and I found four pairs of new shoes that I can't wait to show you! I only spent $35.00 for one designer pair of shoes, and all the rest were under $10.00 because I used coupons and I bought them on clearance!
After shopping all day, we came home and had steak, potatoes, corn on the cob, and veggie kabobs on the grill, then we sat around a campfire and talked into the night as the mosquitoes ate my feet. I was covered completely, but I had sandals on, so they got my feet. I kept my feet as close to the fire as possible, and they still got me!
Then on Sunday, the real fun began because that was Fathers Day! After our church service, we went and had a quick lunch at Culver's where dad got a FREE turtle sundae for fathering his children, then we saw the movie 'Jurassic World'. It was such a fun movie. Not as good as 'Jurassic Park', but a good family movie nevertheless. We all really liked the ending.
After the movie, we went back to Culver's so I could have some ice cream (because I only had a Strawberry Fields salad at lunch, so I was starving after the movie). We then took a few pictures outside the restaurant. If I have any Eau Claire readers, you might recognize the location. Afterwards we came home and opened presents. This was the card I made for my husband:
Now onto the most important part: What did I WEAR for Father's Day? :)
Since my husband was the star of the day, I wore something that I knew would please him since he bought it for me. It apparently worked, because he couldn't take his eyes off me all day (isn't it wonderful when after twenty eight years of marriage, your man still feels that way about you?). He loves me in black, and the see-thru lace is so romantic.
Stitch Fix, and a large, sparkly gold bracelet (old). I brought in a pop of color with my green Liz Claiborne bag from JCP.
We had so much fun this past weekend, and I think the smile on my face really shows it. The weather was absolute perfection! We made so many wonderful memories….exactly what holidays are for!
Have a great day! Amy
