Weekend Review

Another weekend that went by too fast!

Friday night I met with a Realtor and put one of my homes on the market. Before Mr. Pickle and I got married I bought two homes and he had one home of his own. Right before we got married I found renter's for the my house (that I was living in) and moved in with Mr. Pickle in his house. Both my houses have been rented with great tenants, but I feel like Mr. Pickle and I are ready to move in to a house we can call OURS and that just isn't possible while we have all these mortgages! It was bitter-sweet being back in the house I lived in before I moved in with Mr. Pickle. I had not stepped foot in the home in 3 years and it was different seeing it with the tenant's furniture and knowing that I was putting it on the market, but I know it is the right decision. I CANNOT wait until this process is over!!!

The rest of the night Mr. Pickle and I relaxed at home. Him and the boys had a BBQ Competition on Saturday so he was preparing for that most of the night.

Saturday morning I went to visit the boys (Starvin' Marvin's BBQ Team) at the competition.
Their dry ribs placed 4th place and their wet ribs placed 8th place. Not bad for some beginners going up against 20 other professional teams!!!

Unfortunately I didn't get to stay long enough to taste their ribs because my sister, friend and I were on our way to our other friend's wedding. My sister was hired as their photographer and my friend and I were her assistants. We were doing double duty as guests and photographers, so it was a pretty intense day. We had a wonderful time with the bride and groom (hello beautiful couple) and ended up on the dance floor for the last couple of hours. People that didn't know we were friends with the bride must have thought it was pretty weird that the photographers were crashing the wedding after we finished taking pictures. Hahaha!

Sunday morning Mr. Pickle and I headed to Modesto to visit with his family for Father's Day. Not only did we get to spend time with his dad, we got to meet our new (3 week old) niece for the first time. She is Ahhhhh-dorable.

Once we got home, we were pretty tired so we did a few chores and relaxed. I think Mr. Pickle fell asleep at like 8:00!!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I am already looking forward to the next one!!! At least I only have a four day work week :)
