Every weekend should be a 3 day weekend!

Don't you agree? Just that extra day makes me feel like I ACTUALLY had a weekend. If you're like my friend Andrea, who has a three day weekend every weekend, I envy you!

Not only was it a 3 day weekend, but it was just an overall fantastic weekend. Like one of those where I am sitting here and actually cannot stop smiling good. 

Friday: I went out with two of my girlfriends. We went downtown to a local flower shop that has a huge Christmas display. The owners shut down the store the week before the reveal and decorate from top to bottom for Christmas. At the reveal they have hors d'oeuvre, drinks, and live music. It was fun; then, we headed out for coffee and dessert. Girls nights are the best, but I failed and took ZERO pictures this night. Sorry friends.

Saturday: Saturday morning I got to speak at our women's ministry gathering at church. It was fun. I love being with the girls! Although I have to admit my mind was preoccupied because my bestie was ten minutes away welcoming this precious girl into the word.
Welcome Lilah Belle {:aka BABY P:}.
Oh my goodness my heart wants to burst with happiness just looking at this sweet girl!

I got to spend a few hours with this sweet girl and her momma. It was definitely love at first sight.

I mean she is so cool at only hours old that she is already posing with the peace sign. She knows what's up.

Big sissy, meet little sissy.

And I mean I am biased, but their momma is a rockstar.
Well first off, who looks like this 2 days before they have a baby? But, that isn't why she receives rockstar status…she had that little one natural! Shew that makes you a rockstar in my book every time.

Sunday: It was another fantastic day at church. We actually had a guest speaker, who happens to be the man who runs Hillsong Leadership College, Mark Hopkins. It was neat that I got to meet him on Sunday and chat with him a bit about the move across the big pond. 

Monday: The weekend actually kept going past Sunday. Praise the Lord! It has started with sleeping in of corse, but then, I actually got to drink my morning cup of joe out of a coffee cup. This rarely happens because I am always flying out the door with my to go cup for work or church or somewhere else. Ah it was so nice!
A morning of reading, listening to music {:on my new Apple TV which I love:}, and blogging. Perfection.

And after I finish this post it is about to be a Christmas explosion in this house. Yep, I am decorating for Christmas today, and no I don't think it's too early. I mean listen, this is my last Christmas in my house so I want to enjoy it for longer than 2 weeks, so I am saying that it's allowed!

How have you spent your extra long weekend? Am I the only one putting up Christmas stuff already?
