Day Off :)

Yesterday I had the day off, the first of two in a row! Holy Jeebus how did I get so lucky? haha

Josh and I decided to have a picnic in the park near our house before we ran some errands because it was SO beautiful out! We had a lunch of champions : turkey sandwiches, bbq chips, and cherry kool-aid! Delish!!
While we were eating I saw this guy unloading the trunk of his car, but it looked like he was taking it out of the hood of the car closer to us, so I was like "hey look, he is unloading from the front of his car!" and Josh totally fell for it hahaha
After our picnic we ran a few errands then I decided I wanted to lay out in the sun, the only problem: our backyard has turned into a war-zone because our lawn mower is broken!

Exhibit A:
So we did what any college students do - we went and borrowed the neighbors fully functioning lawn mower haha

What a difference it made! Sheesh!
We had to empty the bag before returning it because it was pretty maxed out
Then Josh did some edging with the weed whacker that our landlord gave us to "mow the lawn with" - she is an idiot obviously
But of course, the ONE rope thing that she provided for the weed whacker broke while Josh was using it, so he finished up the rest of the yard with scissors - poor Josh!
After the yard was all nice, I opted to go to the gym instead of lay out, and Josh went to class. We had a yummy dinner of Mandarin Chicken and Corn on the Cob followed by some vanilla ice cream and Oreos :)
I'd say the first of my two days off was a great success! :)

Sounds like a great day off. My husband has no patience. He would have just gave up on the trimming.

Sounds like an awesome day girl. So jealous the weather's great (of course it is). It's been raining here ever since I returned, so I take it as a sign. ;)

Happy Wednesday. xoxo

I love that he broke out the scissors to finish the lawn! I'm only 2 weeks ago from being out there! I'm gonna email you!
