Happy Homemaker Monday - September 2, 2013

Hello!  How was your weekend?

We had a great time.  DH and I took the girls out to see the Planes movie on Saturday afternoon, which we all really enjoyed.  Then most of Sunday was spent at our local amusement park.  We had a little rest before celebrating the end of summer with dinner out at Earl's.

Now on to Happy Homemaker Monday.

The weather...
Sunny with highs in the late 20s, but showers appearing by the end of the week.  

Right now I am...
