Good morning and happy weekend!
Have you ever heard of the “The Five Love Languages”? It’s a book that talks about how different people give and receive their love to those around them. According to the book, the five love languages are:
- Words of Affirmation
- Physical Touch
- Quality Time
- Acts of Service
Cody and I both read the book right after we got married, and it’s been life changing in our relationship. Cody is very much a words of affirmation and acts of service kinda guy, and I am no doubt a quality time person. I highly recommend you read it whether you are single, in a relationship, or married. It can help in all of your relationships and friendships.
This weekend has been a great one so far. Cody and I have been able to have a lot of quality time with one another, and it’s only Saturday morning! I love when that happens. This was important to me because last weekend I was out of town, we were both pretty busy throughout this past week, and we also are going to be having a college kid from our church live with us for the next couple weeks come Sunday.
This morning we both slept in until 8:45 AM! That hardly ever happens, so we were both quite surprised. Since we both got up at the same time (usually I’m up first on Saturdays), I suggested making us waffles for breakfast. Cody loves waffles so he was all about it. I made both of us waffles with Kodiak Cake Mix – Cody’s was plain and I added a half of a mashed banana to mine. It was so nice to sit and eat breakfast together since it rarely ever happens.
We had a really fun time together last night too. I made homemade pizza for dinner, and then we headed off to our town’s Demolition Derby.
Every year our town (Eagle Mountain) has what they call “Pony Express Days”. They plan all sorts of events within a two week period such as a rodeo, country concert, sports tournaments, movie in the park, carnival, etc. The Demolition Derby is just one of the many events they do.
Cody suggested we go check it out since we’ve both never been to one before. I had no idea to what expect, but I ended up really enjoying it! There were a few parts that scared me quite a bit. One of the cars caught fire (see below), but the driver got out and the firefighters put it out right away.
One of the trucks decided to ramp off of one of the concrete barricades and ended up landing on its top. I was initially freaking out about that one too, but the driver ended up being a-okay.
We were both glad we decided to do something a little different than usual. It was a good time!
On our way home we passed our local ice cream shop so we decided some ice cream was a must! I got a cup of cookies ‘n cream ice cream. Yum!
It was the perfect summer night – great weather, a fun event, the best company, and ice cream! Can’t go wrong with that.
