My weekend exploded with events, but it really just felt like I blinked and it was over. I just need one day that is not cram packed with shit. Maybe next weekend? Friday night I ran every errand I needed to do Monday through Friday and didn’t have a chance. I even set out to buy a new spring/summer bag (I call them bags, but some refer to them as purses or pocketbooks), but after looking nothing I was finding was cute enough to buy. Isn’t that life though- I actually had money to get a bag and then nothing was appealing. Whenever I don’t have the extra money to spend on a bag ALL bags look so appealing I’m drooling in the store.
Saturday Olivia had a soccer game in the pouring rain, but her team won! Gracie and I did not attend (I don’t do rain). I had a bridal shower to attend Saturday afternoon which means I had to do my hair so I didn’t scare anyone with my nastiness. Here is my before flat iron and after just in case you were curious.
Saturday evening we took the girls out to dinner. Since I was all dressed up from the shower Olivia asked if they could wear something fancy as well. This is what they came up with. Gracie is wearing Olivia’s flower girl dress from our wedding.
|O FELT GROWN UP HOLDING MY BAG|
|THE GIRLS GOT PRETTY GOOD WITH THE CHOP STICKS|
|THE SOUP WAS A BIG HIT, AND THEY PROVIDED ICE WITHOUT US ASKING (SCORE!)|
|REACTION TO THE FIRE (OLIVIA WAS STANDING BEHIND ME) PRICLESS.|
Sunday was Gracie’s 6th Birthday party. She had lots of fun and it was great to be able to get all her friends together. I must say the best part of Birthdays is lugging all the gifts home and after they are unwrapped opening all the toys while the girls stand over me and ask if I’m almost done yet. Fun times.
