Antiquing was definitely an interesting experience to say the least! I thought it would be more organized than it was, these stores seemed to have stuff everywhere! Since all of my grandparents are passed away, my parents have a lot of antiques mostly on my mom's side. My great-grandmother kept everything which is why we have every TIME magazine dating back to the 1950's which are actually really neat to read through. There are so many cool things and I guess that's the fun of antiquing, you just never know what you might stubble upon. We went to four different stores, but the last one was my favorite. The other three seemed very over priced. I thought the idea of buying old was to save some cash too! Among the various items we saw were a lot of old toy cars, lots of frame, cameras, and even crates full of old records. I really liked the frames and thought about buying one to update and hang in our home, but I ended up chickening out (I wasn't ready to barter). I also tried looking through the records for something that my husband could hang up in his man cave, but no such luck. Even though I didn't buy anything, it was such a great experience and I hope to go back soon.

Friday night was game night. We had a few friends over to relax and enjoy a night filled with laughter (lots of it) and competitive fun. Our friends Chad and Kara brought The Game of Things. You start out with a category like for example, "Things you shouldn't say to your in-laws" and everyone has to write down what you shouldn't say to your in-laws. Then one person reads the answers and the rest have to guess who said what. As you can imagine, this game can get very funny, very quickly. It was such a fun night and I hope we can make game night a usual thing in our house!
