Weekend Rewind

If I'm being completely honest I really just wanted a low key, veg on the couch kind of weekend, however that is not what I got. Looking back though, the events that did happen were likely for the best!

Friday night M played ball for another team, we took Gracie, who actually did pretty well, but by the end of the game she was done with pretending to be happy and was back to her pouting! 

Saturday was my birthday and if I'm being really honest I really didn't feel like celebrating. M and I watched San Andreas in the morning and then M took Noah into town to grab some groceries while I showered and relaxed. When M got home he asked me where we were going for dinner and I really wasn't sure that I wanted to go out. Well before I knew it, he had called up friends of ours and made plans. He refused to let me mope on my birthday. We went to East Sides for dinner and it was actually really good and I'm glad we went! Afterwards my friend treated us to Dairy Queen. Noah had fun playing with their little guy too, which was nice. 

Before leaving I noticed they had the cupcakes in stock, but the flavours this time were the best: chocolate chip cookie dough, birthday cake supreme and birthday cake Oreo!! Yum! You bet I bought
some to bring home!! Best cupcakes ever!! 

Saturday night M tried to take Gracie for a walk, but she wouldn't go, so he tried dragging her out, thinking she would get better once they left - nope, worst walk ever. I got caught up on Mistresses and headed to bed. 

Sunday morning we headed to London and visited my Mom, who was also throwing me a birthday gathering with my sister and kids. While we were there early, M was able to tackle much of her to-do list and then when my sister arrived we took the kiddos swimming in the heated pool! Noah loved it and loved hanging out with Hannah!! 

We hit up Pizza Hut for lunch and man was it ever tasty! I couldn't believe how much I ate and had no interest in dinner until after 7! I was super full!! We attempted Old Navy too, but the line up inside was ridiculous, so we headed home instead! 

M did manage to hang my new dining room light and it looks great! I'm really happy with it and got a great deal!! 

Once it cooled down a bit and Noah went down I attempted taking Hracie for another walk. She had gone with me and Noah before and I lucked out. She kept trying to turn back and lagged a bit, but she came and I didn't push my luck, we just did a short one! It will get better! She went to the park last night with M and Noah. It's just such a big adjustment, especially for her!
