Weekend Review: Wedding Crafts, Good Reads & Football

What a whirlwind weekend! I think I’m still recovering. It was a busy couple of days, and I’m feeling a little run-down. Thankfully, I was able to work from home today to get some extra rest and take it easy. I’m also popping Vitamin C like nobody’s business. I want to make sure I’m at 100% for the marathon on Sunday!

My weekend started out with some wedding craft shopping on Friday night. Matt and I are getting our engagement/save the date photos taken on Thursday evening, and of course I have all sorts of ideas on what to do for them. I got lots of crafty supplies from Hobby Lobby, including some burlap ribbon, save the date numbers, yarn (to wrap the M + A letters in), and more. So fun!

Let the wedding crafting begin!

I also finished reading Dan Brown’s new book, Inferno, on Friday night. I’m a big bookworm and love to read, so I was excited when I found out he’d finally written another novel. It was a good book: fast-paced and action-packed with an interesting and historical story line. Every time I picked up the book, I didn’t want to put it down. It sucks you in! The ending didn’t feel 100% tied up to me, but it was still a satisfying read. Now the questions is, what should I read next?

Saturday morning, I got up for my last long run before the Chicago Marathon. It went well, but I was so tired afterwards…an afternoon nap was definitely in order. After a little snoozing, I got down to painting my office. I got three of the four walls covered before I decided to call it a day.

BTW – I decided to go with the “Copen Blue” color! It’s lovely, and I can’t wait until my office is all done. Pictures and more info to come whenever that is… 🙂

Sunday morning started bright and early at 5am. We had tickets to the Packers-Lions football game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. I’ve never been to a pro football game, so I was excited!

We didn’t get to Green Bay until only about 90 minutes before kick-off. We parked in a gas station, set up bags boards (aka Cornhole) and poured ourselves some drinks out of the trunk of the car.

The game was super fun. We had great seats and the weather was beautiful.

Go Lions!

I even got a little sunburn! I’ll take it, for October in Wisconsin.

Matt is a die-hard Lions fan, so it was a bummer that they didn’t win the game, but we all had a blast nonetheless. I decided live football is way more fun than watching it on TV. If only we could go to the game every week, then I just might be able to handle football season. 😉

Read any good books lately? Have you ever gone to a pro football game?
