3 Day Weekend Got Me Like Whoa

I don't know about you but I think I need another 3 day weekend to make it to Friday.
 
I haven't posted much on the subject because I really can't. In June, the 25th to be exact my soon to be mother in law was out on her morning walk and was hit by a car. After many weeks of being away from home she finally came home on Friday. She has a long recovery to go and we are hoping she can walk by our wedding. When she came home on Friday we were flooded with tons of family coming to see her and had a little party in her honor. I prepared and made a 16 pound ham. Have you ever made 16 pounds of ham? No. Well it's an experience.

 
I baked this ham in pineapples and brown sugar. It was good! I've also ate ham everyday since for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Anyone want some ham?
 
On Saturday, I totally screwed up my nail appointment. I talked last week about my strong nail game and I think that came back to me. I always have my nail appointment at 11:00a.m. The salon isn't super packed, I'm in and out early and have the rest of my day to do whatever errands or relax. I want in the door at 10:57 a.m. announcing I'm here and on time! And guess what... my appointment wasn't until noon. They were super nice and went ahead and took me. The girl that always does my nails, her 11:00 didn't show so it all worked out!
 
I also spent a huge amount of time knitting. I got sucked into the Michaels' Labor Day Sale of 30% off all yarn and got a few rolls. So I spent the weekend knitting 3 scarfs. I also made my soon to be mother in law a phone holder to put on her wheel chair. I mean clearly you have to have priorities when your hands are being used to wheel yourself around. Her phone is stored now!
 
I also consumed the following movies... because what's Labor Day Weekend without some movie watching?

 
How did you spend your Labor Day Weekend?

Good grief, that's awful to hear about your mother in law. I hope and pray that she'll be able to walk by the time you guys get married. That'll be a celebration in itself. Thinking of you guys.... xox

Oh, I love Romancing the Stone!

And that is so scary for your soon to be MIL. I wish her a speedy recovery.

I'm am completely screwed up on my days with the three day weekend. We celebrated my birthday Saturday and Monday, so I needed a recovery day, but didn't get one. Maybe this weekend will be more low-key.

mhhmmm ham, yours looks so delicious! Glad you mom in law (soon to be) is getting better! For us it was just a regular weekend because the Hubby had to work :(
