This weekend was a great for many reasons.
First, it was my little brother's birthday yesterday and he got engaged to a great girl! Yay! I am so happy for Jacob and Danika.
Just look at how cute they are ----> ----> ----> ----> ----> ----> ---->
They met while both serving church missions in Romania. I love how well Danika fits into our crazy family. Even more, I love how she and Jacob are so smitten with each other and are clearly a wonderful match for one another. Yay for another eternal marriage in the Mayans family.
(Sarah, you're next ;) haha, but no rush)
Being Saturday, it was nice just to relax with Andrew. We had a pretty lazy morning and then went to the pool in the afternoon to laze around some more. After the pool, we walked around the Taylorsville Days carnival and people watched. I have decided that carnivals are the BEST for seeing some interesting characters. We didn't go on any rides or play any carnival games; both Andrew and I were content meandering around the booths filled with random crafts and trinkets, listening to the terrible karaoke singers, smelling the wafting odors of fried funnel cakes and BBQ chicken, and watching hordes of people come and go.
We ended the night with some delicious dinner at Texas Roadhouse and then decided to go to see Finding Dory. But wait....it gets better. Since we stopped by the house after dinner, I decided to take the movie experience up a notch by going in pajamas... and my awesome husband joined me! We even took a blanket too. (Let's be honest, movies are way better when you are in comfy pjs and have a cuddly blanket). Yes, we might be weirdos but I don't care. All I know is that I'm grateful I married someone wiling to be spontaneous and weird right along side me. :) PS: The movie was cute, but Finding Nemo is better. PS#2: Don't buy ice cream at the movie theater. It is crazy pricey and they are stingy with their portions. Lesson learned.
Yep, I'd say that was a pretty successful weekend.
