Weekend Links

( Source )

The weekend's here and my sister's back in town (yes.. again!) so I've been spending most of my time with her. It's consisted of running errands, spending time with our two boys, poking fun at each other, drinking coffee, eating, loving, and laughing. Sunday, Dave and I are hoping to make it out to the Hot Air Balloon Fest. I jokingly told Dave we should purchase one but apparently those suckers run anywhere from $10,000 to $50,000. Enjoy your weekend guys!
