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.
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!
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!!
