Oh How I'm Loving This Monday


I'm totally loving this Monday! No real particular reason or event, it just feels soooooo Good!
It's probably because we had an awesome day at church yesterday and shared a lunch of yummy Mexican food with some new and old friends.
I mean is there anything as lovely as really breaking bread with other people who love God too?? :)
Oh, and I might be in such a great mood because THE HUBBY IS HOME FOR GOOD!
If you are late tuning in, read about it here.

So what's new in your neck of the woods?

I also realize that I haven't blogged in a little bit and I'm going to catch you up on what we've been up to.

It started last Sunday when we embarked on a 2 day fishing trip with our adoptive grandparents who are like family to us.
We stayed at a resort near the lake and just soaked up the pretty weather and good times.

It was my first EVER fishing trip on a boat.
We had a blast!
This picture doesn't do it justice but the leaves has started turning brilliant colors and everywhere we looked the view was Awesome!

Hubby sent this pic to the guys he used to work with who are SERIOUS fishers and it said: "Even a bad day fishing is better than a day at work!"
We thought it was hilarious of course because we're dorky like that :)

At first I was a chicken and didn't want to drive the pontoon we rented.

But when I realized how simple it was, I barely let the hubby touch the steering wheel after that :)
Except pulling into the dock, no way was I gonna do that.

I also want to point out that just because you go fishing when it feels chilly in early October doesn't mean you can't get sun burned. 
Lesson learned by this girl.

Because we went during the week and school is in session, we practically had the lake to ourselves except a few other boaters. 
Which meant I could drive fast and turn up the radio! 
Ok, I only did it once. :)

Hubby was totally in his outdoorsy element and I could tell how relieved he felt.
You know how it is when you are in a stressful situation and then you actually finally let God do His thing and it's like whew!?

It was kind of like that.
We packed snacks and stayed out on the lake for hours only breaking for lunch back at the cabin.
I can't wait to go back!

This was clearly the biggest fish we caught.
But it was already dead. As in, belly up, floating around.
And man was he STINKY!
We held him up for good measure and then tossed him back.
Poor guy.

If you haven't tried fishing before, you really should. 
It's not just about catching fish in my opinion, but getting outside with the people you love and having a good time.
I even baited a few of my own hooks with LIVE worms.
But then I started feeling bad for them and went back to fake bait.
Oh well!:)

Have a great day!
Come back tomorrow!
