Rainy Days...


Rainy days...are some of the best! Cody and I were so looking forward to a long weekend full of golf, golf and more golf. Unfortunately, God decided to bless us with Rain, RaIn, and more RAIN instead! I was so bummed each morning as I woke up to find yet another gloomy day ahead of us. However, by the end of the day, I was so appreciative of the rain! Not only because of the landscape around us getting more beautiful with each drop, but more because of the activities we were able to do with one another during those rainy days. 
We shopped multiple times this weekend. We didn't get away with much except for a pair of shoes and a MONTANA STATE shirt, but the time running in and out of the rain with my hubby was so fun! I truly appreciate his patience for me while we are shopping; see, I STINK at shopping. He keeps me sane as I constantly look at one more outfit I hate! hehe!
We also had a major-movie-weekend! We saw the Chronicles of Narnia: Price Caspian.

It is so amazing! Cody liked it even more than the first, and I enjoyed them both equally. I have this sudden urge to pick up the books and read them, but I am already in the middle of two others! (Jodi Picoult's "Harvesting the Heart" and Sheri Dew's "God wants a powerful people".) We also saw P.S. I LOVE YOU. Tear-jerkers MAJOR! I loved it....Cody on the other hand, let's just say "What a GOOD husband!" hehe! I love watching movies and cuddling when it is freezing outside...then you don't feel guilty for being lazy!

We also watched deer! Sounds funny, I know, but we did. We saw a baby fawn, probably only about 1 day old. It was fun to see her through the binoculars stumbling over herself. Cody really has an eye to see animals from a distance! I love it!

So, despite the icky weather and predicting a horrible weekend, it turned out to be quite the pleasant time for us!

the makers of Prince Caspian kept to the original story surprisingly well... i heard they were going to make it into a silly pure-action flick, but thankfully this was not the case

I totally agree, rainy days are nice every once in awhile, because you don't feel guilty for curling up on the couch with a good book! It was fun to see you guys last week! Hope the sun comes out so you can golf!
