10 Things We Did This Weekend

Because everything is more fun in a list. Right? It makes my life seem more exciting, at least to me. :)

1. It all began with Friday night dinner. Ah, can't kick off a weekend right without it. We spent the evening with Eric's parent's, eating and playing at their house. The girls always look forward to it!

2. On Saturday we celebrated my grandpa's birthday. The weather held out long enough during the afternoon so that Evie and Grace were able to run off some steam outside with their cousins. They had so much fun, I felt like a big grinch when we had to tell them it was time to go. Eric had been up since 4:00am to work at the radio station that morning, and he was pooped!

3. Later that night we had a hankering for some mostaccioli and errands to run, so over the mighty Mississippi we went. In the pouring wind and rain. I thought our little car was going to flip right on off of the bridge, sending me to a premature death. I do not like driving in storms. The End.

4. We stuffed our faces at P'Sghetti's and discussed topics we deemed inappropriate on a first date. I never laugh harder than with my own husband. :D Unfortunately for P'Sghetti's, the storms knocked their credit card machine out and they had to take information manually - you know, the old fashioned way. We got a call the next day saying that NONE of the cards from that night went through, and until they can get a hold of every single customer, they served a whole lotta people for free. Poor P'sghetti's. :(

5. I learned that I have been giving the wrong cell phone number to every person, business, and form I have filled out for the past...oh I don't know...year. While buying a gift this weekend the sales clerk asked for my phone number. I happily gave it to her, and Eric informed me that half of my numbers were mixed up. Seriously? No wonder why I never won any Disney vacations! Now I'll never know... :)

6. We had another great Sunday morning at church. The girls LOVE the new church building. Love it. They'd rather run the halls than play with toys in the nursery, haha.

7. We ate lots of barbecue and did some front porch swinging. (See every picture in this post.) Ah, Sunday. The day of rest.

8. Eric finally took care of the one thing pushing him to the verge of crabby all weekend and mowed the grass. If our grass line is half an inch taller than everyone else's Eric starts to itch. And since his schedule is so full, sometimes he has to go a day or two longer than he would like before scratching that itch. I can't even tell you what a changed man he was when the grass was mowed. It's all he talked about for the rest of the day. :)

9. There was a trivia night hosted by our church that I really wanted to go last night, but we have SO MUCH going on this week that requires a babysitter that we felt bad asking our parents to watch the kids again. I hope they raised some more money for the Thailand folks! So we took the girls for a walk, where I thought I was going to pass out. For real.

10. I came home and puked my guts up. Yay pregnancy. Meanwhile, Eric used his steady hand to dissect and repair my iPhone. It was not an easy chore this time. But now I am back in business! So if you are among the lucky who have the RIGHT phone number (I'm still not sure what it is now) you can get a hold of me once again. ;)

I crashed hard when my head hit my pillow last night. I'm a little less sick and little more energized than I was a few weeks ago, but all that has amounted to so far is me overdoing it and then regretting it later, haha. I just can't wait to feel normal again. I'm in the second trimester officially and I'm still having the occasional date with my head in the toilet, which is discouraging, let me tell ya. Still, it could be much worse! I keep reminding myself to just soak it all in and enjoy it as much as I can.

We get to check up on baby Robert tomorrow afternoon, and I can't wait! Please say a prayer that everything is still going smoothly for us. I think there is always just a little worry until I hear that healthy heartbeat every time.

Life is pretty good right now. :) We have so many blessings to be thankful for, that is for sure. Tonight is Eric's LAST accounting class ever. Hallelujah! Good luck on your final, m'dear! It will be really nice to have a break for a few weeks before summer classes start. We still haven't settled on a mini-cation destination, though we've gotten even more suggestions. Haha. Other than that, we're just swinging along....

Great post!!

Of course you would do a list recap of your weekend - I am not kidding when I tell you I was planning on doing the same thing....a little different, but mostly the same...

Giving the wrong phone number, i would be in a panic!

Heather said...

I know who I'm calling if my phone ever breaks!

I hope one of those nights you have a babysitter is for Thursday!!

I want my house to have a porch with a swing (yours looks super comfy!). That just sounds like the perfect way to spend nice weathered days. And those pictures are all too cute :)
