Weekend Recap: Yard Sale, Relay for Life, & Spider-Man 2!

Happy Monday friends!  Last week I had Friday off because I had a yard sale, and this week I have Friday off because we are heading to Cincinnati for Memorial Day weekend.  Yay for four-day work weeks!  Here's what I was up to this weekend:

Dateless in Dallas

FRIDAY:  I got up early and put up signs for our yard sale and then started setting up.  My mom and Kevin's mom were there to help (and they brought stuff for the yard sale too).  Luckily the rain held off, but it was cold!  Highs were only in the upper 40's.  We did pretty good at the yard sale.  I spent the rest of the night just hanging out at home.

SATURDAY:  I got up early again to get everything set up for the yard sale.  My mom and Kevin's mom were there again to help.  I was very thankful for no rain again on Saturday and a little bit warmer temps.  Saturday was another decent day sale-wise at the yard sale.  We got rid of lots of stuff and made a little money in the process.  I'm calling local donation center to come pick up the rest of the stuff this week.  I can't wait to have my garage back!!

Saturday night I went to my hometown to walk for Relay for Life.  My mom raised $670 all on her own for the great cause!  We walked some laps and turned in her money before heading home for the night.

SUNDAY:  Kevin and I slept in, which was awesome.  We did a few things around the house and then decided to go see The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  I thought it was really good.  I made crock pot salsa chicken (find the recipe HERE) for dinner and Kevin and I both really liked it.  It was super easy and will be on my list to make again.  Sunday night was spent cleaning up around the house and watching TV.

What were you up to this weekend?


  1. Congrats to your mom on raising so much money for RFL!

  2. Wow, your mom did awesome! That's so nice that you could join her. I'm happy to hear your yard sale went well too. That feeling of clearing out all the junk and having space back is great, isn't it?! :) My brother and boyfriend both saw Spiderman 2 and told me it was so good... I can't wait to rent it!

    xo Always, Abby

  3. Sounds like a great weekend! As you already know, I'm having a yard sale this weekend too! Haha :) yay for the relay for life walk! I hope you enjoy your 4 day work week! Your halfway there! ;)
