I’m laying in bed on Sunday night writing this. Nothing like procrastination. I had such high hopes for this weekend. I had so much stuff to do and so many events to attend but I barely did anything. I’m feeling pretty worthless right now going to bed at 7:30 on a Sunday night hoping I feel well enough to go into work tomorrow.

Tomorrow I get to meet my students for the semester and I help test out their skills in the lab to make sure they are competent before they go to the clinical facilities. It’s a big day and they are counting on me to be there but I just feel cruddy. I hope that if I go to bed early enough I can wake up and embody my Florence Nightingale.

This morning’s blog post, I wanted to give you a recap of my Saturday. On my way home from work on Friday night I was on the phone with my mom and I realized I hadn’t seen her or spent much quality time with her in a good week which is very unusual for us. Often times I see her at least once a day but after our Wisconsin dells trip and then working last weekend, I truly miss her.

Mom had told me she made rice pudding and chocolate cake for me to come on over on Saturday morning. My mom is the best mom.

She was working on her mystery quilt and wanted to get the top put together before noon. I sat and visited with her and ate her food while the boys played.

Soon enough Carver need a snuggle buddy on the couch and I was still pretty tired from having worked the last two days. Gannon laid down for his nap and I fell asleep on her couch. I could have just as easily take a nap at my house but my moms house still feels just as much as home even though I didn’t grow up there. I think mom feels like home more than anything.

My moms couch is so comfy

When Craig got off work he came to my moms and picked up the boys. Mom and I were wanting to go to a little store a few miles down the road. It’s called Country view dairy where they make their own yogurt, frozen yogurt and other dairy treats. We know the owners through a few mutual friends and we wanted to go get some of their yogurt. It is the creamiest yogurt ever and we just love it. Not to mention since Craig quit smoking his sweet tooth is out of control and he’s been eating as much peach yogurt as he can get his hands on.

Everything is based on an honor system. They are open 8 AM to 8 PM every day. They also have a few crafts for sale from local craft vendors so that was super fun!

Mom picked up a honey and oatmeal soap and I got this one for Craig. They both smell amazing. I think it’s so funny that this one is called date night for a farmer – I ended up buying it for my farmer and he used it for a date night that night!

As you can see people from all over the world have stopped by! How cool are these maps to keep track of where customers are from?

The frozen yogurt of the day was like a coffee/mocha so mom and I enjoyed that! You can buy big tubs of frozen yogurt and take it home to freeze too!

After our little adventure I headed back home to get ready for a party we had that night. We went out to eat and then back to a friends house. We played the FUNNEST game ever called Watch Ya Mouth!

Each player gets a mouth piece and then you have to read the card and your team mate has to guess what you are saying! We laughed and laughed. It would be an AWESOME game to play with family for get togethers! Here’s a video of Craig playing!

We just had a blast. Later on, we pulled out the “adult only” cards and oh man. FUN. Highly recommend. I’ve linked the game to Amazon if you want to give it a try at your next get together! HERE IS THE LINK!

So there you have it! That was my Saturday! I’ll see you all tomorrow morning again at 0530! This week I’ll have a few of my tried and true recipes to share, an update on Gannon, and my personal thoughts on unanswered prayers. I’m working on putting together a video log or VLOG from our Wisconsin Dells trip last week!

    There are no unanswered prayers. It’s just God saying “the time is not now.”
