A Really Belated Memorial Day Weekend Recap

via Pinterest
Hey, girls, hey! I cannot believe I haven't blogged since last Friday....eep! That's a LONG time in my book, but then again, I'm a blogging addict and can't go for more than a couple days without having withdrawals. It's pathetic, really.

I'm going to warn you right now. The following content in this post may bore you to the point of tears (I apologize in advance.) If you're up to it though, here's a little recap of what we did this past Memorial Day weekend:

Saturday we visited Stephen's parents and sisters in Fort Smith (about an hour away from where we live.) His little sis graduated high school last week and they had a fun post-graduation party for her. It was a blast to spend the day and night catching up with his sweet fam.

And we got to see Sarah and Ava while there....LOVE both of those girls to pieces!

Sunday and Monday were spent on Beaver Lake, driving around the lake in the boat. We got lots of sun and, dare I say, the beginnings of what could turn into a great summer tan. A few pics:

My two fav boys lounging on the sun pad of the boat...

Mr. Ari, keeping watch over the front of the boat...

Me in my designer swimsuit $20 Target bikini. I don't usually post swimsuit pics (why would I want to subject you innocent bystanders to that), but I'm kinda proud of the work I've been doing in the gym lately : )

My hottie fiance in his "I'm the King of the World!" pose. Is it possible to be more and more attracted to someone as time goes on? I do believe it is!

This coming weekend, I'll be getting ready for a work trip to Chicago, but you better believe we'll be working in a boat outting that Saturday before I leave : )

What did y'all do this past weekend? Anything exciting or did you just take it easy?

Be blessed, lovelies-
