Overall it was a very fun weekend where we got to hang out with family and catch up on the things they experienced on their adventure. They actually spent a week of their trip in Freiburg, where I studied in Germany in 2006 (the city holds a lot of family history) and as sad as it was not to be there myself, it was so wonderful to see pictures of the places I used to frequent while living there! My heart aches to go back!
On an unrelated note, right before we left to head up to family, I discovered a Border's gift card that I didn't know I had! Knowing the company was going out of business soon I hopped on the website to see if I could find anything to order but then last minute decided to try to go to the store while we were up north because I knew they'd have better sales at their locations. Sure enough, Chris and I bought five new books and a few greeting cards for 70-80% off to use up my gift card AND they were all books on my "to read" list that aren't available at the libraries down here, so I was super excited. We used up my gift card and I ended up owing $1.04.
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend, even if you didn't end up with Monday off (my last job did not get this holiday, so there's bound to be a bunch out there)!
