Weekend Wrap-Up

I wasn't planning on doing much today until tonight, but then I realized Dillard's was still having a good sale. Take an extra 40% off already marked down prices!!  I'm going to a masquerade themed charity ball in two weeks and I still needed to find a dress.  I tried on lots and finally found one!!  Can't wait to find a mask to put with it!  I met Niki earlier at Target and got a few things there and some makeup at Sally's. It was a good shopping day!!  
I came home and changed my clothes to meet J for dinner. We went to this place called Rare and it was so good!!!  We were getting ready to order and the waitress asked us if we were celebrating anything, we said no and that we just had never been there before and wanted to try it out!  Halfway through dinner he tells me that he won at bowling today!!  He was excited!  He had been on a losing streak since before we had started dating.  (He and his team at work all bowls with a little plastic bowling set every Friday for an old trophy and then he and his boss bowl each other for a dollar....he won the dollar this week!!). After we finished dinner, they asked us if we wanted dessert,I was stuffed but he wanted something.  He decided on the salted caramel cheesecake and it was so good!!!  I'm not a big fan of cheesecake but I love me some salted caramel!  We decided we were celebrating his win at bowling today!!
We then went to see the movie "Focus" that had come out that day.  It was very good!  After that, we went and had a drink.  Some random guy was there and started talking to him, when he got up to leave he stopped and talked to both of us.  He made me feel sorry for him, J thought he was maybe not being so truthful!!  Haha!!!  
I got up and went to the gym for spin class and then stayed for bootcamp with Amanda.  I but Ed over 1000 calories!  I felt great after it was over!!  I came home then went to Niki's to hang out and help some friends move into their new house.
Ryker stole my sunglasses out of my purse!
We were craving Mexican so bad, chips and salsa and cheese and margaritas....but it was late and we were looking like bums so we decided to do out own Mexican at home!!
YUM!!!!  It was so good too!!!  I couldn't hardly stay awake past 10 so I headed on home!
I had plans of doing laundry and reading my book all day...not much more, but when Niki told me about the Pentecost church having chicken and dumplings I decided to go down there and veg out with her!!  It was the perfect day to be lazy!  We are chickens and dumplings, I read my book, watched a movie, tried to take a nap but it didn't actually happen.  We watched the Sunday night shows and then I headed home to get ready for the work week!!

Lindsay's Baby Shower Weekend

It was hair day and then it was time to head home for Lindsay's shower weekend!!  I can't believe it's already here.  We've only been planning it since September when we didn't even know boy or girl yet!!  We went ahead and had two ideas just in case.  I love love love the shower theme!!  I found one picture on Pinterest and ran with it!!  I wish I would have taken more pictures of it all!!  I met Michelle at the nail salon to get our nails done and then finally made it home.  I talked to mom for a little bit then had to go run some last minute errands.  Luckily the main roads were clear, the side roads on the other hand were awful still!  I made it just fine though, Michelle and I got all the last minute stuff done!  Lindsay came over after work to stay the night and she got there right after I got back.  Mom made dinner so we sat there and ate and talked.

We all got up pretty early and the weather was so nasty.  Rain on top of all this snow we already had was not good.  Some people were unable to drive in because of it but we still have a large turnout.

After the shower, my car was packed full!!!  
(What in the world is up with those bangs???)
I helped deliver all the gifts to Lindsay's house because not everything would fit in one car.  That baby sure is blessed by all our friends and family!!  We all can't wait to meet him!!  He is spoiled already!!  I didn't stay and hang out very long because the temperature was dropping and I was worried about the roads!  I made it home just fine and was completely exhausted!!  The driveway sucked also and I wasn't about to try to leave and have to drive back up there!!

We all went to YMCA Pancake days this morning for pancakes and sausage.  We came back, I loaded up my car and headed back to IL.  Now it's time for the Oscars!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up (Feb. 13-15)

Oh Valentine's day weekend, a weekend I haven't enjoyed in years.  Well, this year, that changes!

Can we please have Galentine's Day every year!?!
My BFF and I went to see 50 shades of grey with her mom and some of her friends that afternoon.  Of course, the theater was packed and there were quite a few laughs and snickers!  Everybody has their opinion about this movie and that is fine.  I read the books, I went to see the movie and I will go see the next two as well!!
Popcorn and a ginormous icee!!
We were ready in our "Laters Baby" t-shirts
I get home and found this beauty on my front doorstep!!
I ordered it Tuesday from the Surprise sale and had it by Friday afternoon!!
I changed out my purses, changed my clothes and got ready for a date!! 
I drove up to his house for a day early Valentine's day date.  He had the night planned, we went to a movie at a theater where we sat in leather recliners and then went downtown for dinner.  It was so great!!

My flowers and truffles!!
I got up and went to body pump to start the day.  I came home and worked on things for Lindsay's baby shower next weekend.  I took a little nap and then went to Niki's house for the evening.  There was a basketball game that night against the rival team, so we went to that. 
Ryker before we left for the game in his "Little Heart Breaker" shirt
I did a little shopping at Dillard's today.  I went in just for makeup and maybe a dress for a charity ball next month and came out with makeup, no dress and these Sperry's.  
Then I went to Target to get some things for the week and saw this....
Love these some ecards!!

Weekend Wrap-Up (Feb. 6-8)

I was on standby from work all day.  I don't know the last time I've had a whole day of standby!!  I left at about 4 to head to Evansville for the weekend.  I stopped to get my nails done then went to get a baby shower gift.

I got up and got ready to meet Niki at the Tri-State spelling bee that her oldest son was in.  After his test we went to eat lunch.  We went to Hacienda to eat lunch.
My favorite!!!  Ranch, salsa and chips!!
We went back to the spelling bee to see how he did on the test.  He didn't make it on to the oral bee.  They went on home and I went to the baby shower.
