Weekend Recap..The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!!


Happy Monday!! How do I look? Big thanks to Christina over at Being Mrs. Jones and Visual Luxe for adding some much needed pizzazz to the blog layout. Although I decided to keep my header done courtesy of my bestie Erika, Christina, created a button, added my Twitter feed (Are you following me? If not, what are you waiting for…join the conversation already!!), menu bar and jazzed up my sidebar so that it matches my header. I love it. Need a new look? I recommend you give her a call, tweet, email, whateva #shamelessplug!  Now on to my weekend.

The Good

Saturday, I slept in until 3p #dontjudgeme!! I attended a wine tasting social, and participated in a couples game night at the home of one of my very good friends. It’s always great to meet up with friends, especially when the monotony of life can easily keep us away from some of our favorite people. Sunday, I cooked..yes I cooked. I am actually proud to say I am getting better at it and *swoon* I actually think I am beginning to like it!
The Bad

 Weekend started off quite shaky I must admit. Remember  a few weeks ago I posted about the annual couples mountain retreat in November that the Mr. and I are going to? Well, the original plan consisted of my father flying over from Las Vegas to babysit the children, until he told me on Friday that he booked his flight for the wrong weekend and wasn’t able to change the ticket. WOOSAH!!! I’ll spare you the gory details and just let you know in the end everything worked out and although the babies will be split up we have secured arrangements with other family members and the trip is still on!!

….The Downright Ugly
Shortly after the Mr. gets home from work on Friday he commences to tell me that his mother is upset with me because I don’t have any pictures of her and the babies on MY Facebook page, but I have three photos of them with my parents. So let’s just say I’m not the person I used to be but I’m still a work in progress. It took everything I had to count to twenty and edit my thoughts before I opened my mouth. Again, I will spare you the details but the short and dirty version of it is, I told him that his mother was too old to be so petty, and to concern herself with HIS page and if she had a problem she could call me…although I’m hoping she doesn’t for at least another two days, I would like to be welcomed at Thanksgiving dinner. See below for the scrutinized photos!!
Enough about me. How was your weekend, the good, the bad and the ugly!!

  1. Ahhh family…gotta love 'em!

    My weekend was hectic and had it's ups and downs. Best wishes to you and your family this week. And I added your button to my page, love it!

  2. Thanks for the shoutout!

    I SO want to do a wine tasting, I need to find one locally for the hubby and I to attend. It's something we've always wanted to do, and just never got around too!

    Good to hear that your trip is still on!

    On that facebook situation……girl….let's just say I definitely wouldnt be invited to holiday dinner THIS year, lol.

  3. Awwww…beautiful family. Can't always please everyone, right? Especially family. Highlights from this weekend for me include watching Karate Kid with the fam (good movie!) and spending time outside enjoying this indian summer. I'm also excited because baby girl is starting to grab things. I'm sure that excitment will be short-lived, but I'll enjoy it for now 😉

  4. Mother in laws….maybe I shouldn't go there, lol. But beautiful photos by the way, and yay you have a button for me to add to my blog now!

    My weekend was good, had a date night with hubby, we went bowling with friends and had a great time. Made me realize we need to get out more often.

    Glad to hear your trip is still on 🙂

  5. awww, very nice pictures of the fam! Bummer about the flight confusion but, glad you have back up to watch the kiddos. It's such a challenge to find child care when parents aren't close by. Sigh.

  6. Oh wow. I'm so glad my mom doesn't know how to operate Facebook. When parents and inlaws get on Facebook something is always certain to spark a debate.

  7. Moter-inlaws got to love them! Glad Mine don't do FB! Then agian I don't say must to my Mother-inlaw. Think I will keep it that way….lol

    At least the trip is still on.

  8. What is is about Mother in Laws? Thankfully, mine doesn't have a facebook page, but she monitors mine through her sons. I always get the call complaining that she needs more photos….
