Once Upon a Weekend... Conference, Bike Rides and Christmas Lights

How was your weekend?
Ours was amazing!!!
My husband's schedule has changed from working 100+ hours a week to 40 hours a week. For the first time in about 10 years, we feel like normal people. It won't last forever, but we are saving every moment with him around.

The best part of the weekend was watching General Conference, the biannual meeting that our church broadcasts every year. You can watch it here. I made a up a printable of one of my favorite quotes.

We also had time to go bike riding, go to the park with friends, I got to go for a great run (half marathon training)!, we had a date night, and we watched daddy win the basketball intramural championship!!!

We even took down our Christmas lights, finally!
I was beginning to feel like the redneck woman that Gretchen Wilson sings about... "And I leave my Christmas lights on, on my front porch all year long." LOL
I still haven't taken down our Christmas cards... I kind of like Christmas to linger as much as possible!

I love Christmas lights! Last year, we only had the tiny white lights on our house, but this year, I might invest in some of the LED lights, or some colorful Christmas lights (that's what the kids like). We had several strands of white Christmas lights hung in our kids bedrooms, and also on our back deck for the holidays. I might leave them up on the deck for the summer just because I think they are so pretty! Check out Christmas Lights Etc for a big list of Christmas lights and supplies!


  1. wow 100+ hours!!! enjoy the extra time with your hubby :)

  2. I loved conference this weekend too. I love President Monson's story of him and his friend and lighting field grass on fire. His facial expressions were hilarious!!! And I loved Elder Holland's talk on Belief and faith and when he hugged that 14 year old boy till his eyes bulged. LOL

    Have a wonderful, normal week!!!
