First Weekend of Summer.

This weekend was a pretty laid-back weekend (which was great because next weekend is my brother's wedding, so it will be pretty busy). Friday, Donny and I hung out at the pool for a while in the afternoon then went to see Jersey Boys.  I thought it was great!  The acting was fantastic, and the music was amazing.  The story was very said, but it is what it is.  I had no idea until we got home from the movie that the critics didn't like it.  It's not the first time that they've hated a movie I loved, and I'm sure it won't be the last.
Saturday, I spent the morning at the pool again reading The Son by Jo Nesbo.  This is a Norwegian author who has been recommended to me several times because of my love for Michael Connelly.  He has a series based on a detective, Harry Hole, that I'm looking forward to get into.  But this book is a stand-alone, and so far it's really good!  I'll save my stamp of approval until I'm done, but so far it's definitely got me hooked.
Saturday night, we went to my parents' house for dinner and so I could help my mom with her makeup for Drew's wedding and show her my dress options.  I narrowed the four I tried on for her down to two.  Donny LOVES the sequined dress, but the long navy one is probably more appropriate for the occasion.  Plus, it's so much more comfortable.  Who knew sequins are so heavy??
Our Sunday was incredibly lazy.  We skipped church in favor of sleep (heathens, I know...) then spent the day watching baseball, soccer, and NASCAR.  Like everyone else, I had a collective heart attack during the soccer match.  What a game...
Now it's Monday, which would ordinarily be sad.  However, it's also the first day of Wimbledon, so it's a happy day!

Hope y'all have a great week!
