This past weekend was a lot of fun! We started off Friday night by having date night just the two of us. We decided to go to Wasabi and it definitely hit the spot!
Then we went by Ulta and I picked up this kit on sale! If you have curly or wavy hair this is a must-try! I love how it makes my hair feel It doesn't feel crunchy like most products and really boosts the curl. This kit came with no-poo (shampoo without the suds), conditioner, microfiber towel for drying, and clips to give your hair more volume. It is nice to be able to go to bed at night with wet hair and wakeup in the morning looking halfway presentable. Yay DevaCurl!!
The next morning we got up bright and early to meet my family for breakfast and pick up our sweet, little friend, Abby. I have always loved babysitting, especially little girls. Miss Abby goes to the church I attended and grew up in. After our move to Knoxville, we still get to go every once in awhile, but not near as often as before. This has caused us to miss our little Abby Cadabby like crazy! Abby loves us and we love her. A couple that goes to our church got Abby when she was in the foster system with her brother and sister. They ended up splitting up the siblings, but they got to keep Miss Abby. Now you might think this is strange, but Russ and I at the age of 21 and newly married said that if Karen and Brad did not end up adopting Abby then we would love to. Of course, Karen and Brad did (and do a wonderful job), but she will always have a special place in our hearts. She has Russ wrapped around his little finger and I love to see the way he is with her. It makes me look forward to the future. ;)
Abby, Russ, and my Madre at Cracker Barrel. Abby can put down some food let me tell ya!
My precious mamaw and best friend. I love this picture!
After Cracker Barrel we headed to take Abby to her BIG surprise! She was so excited and didn't mind the drive at all. I am always amazed at how well behaved she is.
When we got there she was shaking all over with excitement and jumping up and down. We were taking her to the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg!
Isn't she the cutest!?
Abby loved the penguins!!
After the aquarium we walked to Johnny Rocket's and got us some yummy milkshakes.
The rest of the night was us relaxing and watching movie after movie. It was the best day!
The next morning we got up and headed to church!
We had so much fun with Abby! It actually made Russ and I spend more quality time together and put stress on hold. We usually would be trying to clean or do homework, but Abby took our minds off all of that because we really tried to make this past weekend all about her. I loved it!
