I can't believe we are in the 2nd month of the year...
especially when we're still celebrating Christmas! ... its true... sad, but true.
But let's look at the whole weekend.
Friday was just lazy. I stopped at the grocery to pick up a few things & ended up spending my normal $125.... (GEEZ! WHY every time?!?!) ... & then came home to eat pizza. Who wants to cook when you spend all that time & energy getting food to put in your cabinets?
I ended up sitting on the couch snuggled in watching The Vampire Diaries since it has come back... moved to Friday. Boo! Oh well, looks like I have a new date on Fridays with the Salvator Brothers. & also my Mikaelson Family. I'm glad they didn't separate the two shows though. When are they going to do a good cross over episode like all the super hero TV shows?
Ricky had to go to bed early since he worked on Saturday.
My hope is always to sleep in on Saturday but when Ricky leaves to work on the weekend, I guess it makes the dogs think its a normal work day so they just stay up & active, waking me up. So I am always up early on Ricky's work days. Not fair.
I had to laugh though when I woke up & thought of how awesome my style is....
Princess pants & a Neon yellow/grey sweater that I left on from work. Class. I have it.
I just spent my morning cleaning the kitchen - something I can always do so much better when the hubs is away... & then some Bible Journaling... & then I stepped outside.
OH MY GOSH.
It was like the Spring Fairies just were stopping through to remind us that cold goes away.
It was glorious!!!!
I was so excited because it meant I was able to take my long run out on the road.
It was snowing last week with a blizzard.. & this week, sun was shining in all of its glory.
Look - shorts!
I was so excited to not be on the treadmill. Now, if I can put in an order to Mother Nature to have the rest of my Saturday's just like these for my long runs. Too much to ask? I don't think so.
I was excited to get home & cleaned up because we were heading out for one last Christmas!
We had plans to get with our friends for our Christmas get together the week after Christmas, but we had to do our Nashville trip, & then Ricky got sick... & then I got sick... & then jobs & life... & WHEW - we finally got it in.
Good thing too - we had our grand buddy a Bronco outfit (They are Bruno fans to the fullest) & with the Super Bowl next weekend, it would be a shame for her not to get that to wear on Super Bowl Day.
We stopped to pick up dessert to take & just HAD to get this cookie for them too...
... along with a box full of cupcakes... say it with me - YUMMMMMM
Calories don't count at Christmas, right? ... even if Christmas is over a month late? ... SURE!
We actually went to church before hand & then our friends cooked dinner for us & then it was time to give Miss Thang her presents. She was just the cutest thing opening every one of them.
My favorite thing? We got her a book & you would have thought it was the best present ever. Forget the toys - forget all the boxes still laying there to open up. She just wanted to go through the book over & over. A girl after my own heart.
|She loves her Pappy|
I feel so bad - when we go over to our friends, we just seem like we're moving in because we looked down & it was nearly 1 am... OH my... but that's what happens when you're having a good time- time just flies. So we got home & got in bed at nearly 2 am.
Let me tell you - I felt it the next day. My body can't handle late nights anymore. #FeelingOld
Sunday, since we went to church the night before, we just took some time in the morning & the nice weather to take Zoe out & work on her hair. She can't get groomed at a 'real' groomer because she 'crocodiles' - she spins herself in the harness where they can't do anything for her - so its up to us to keep her trimmed up & after this past snow, its got her hair all a matted mess. Bless her little heart. But Ricky got her legs all shaved down... & she still have a fluffy body - so not be surprised if you dont see any pictures of Zoe for awhile. She looks like some strange creature right now.
But I got cleaned up & headed back over to Chasity's home for our JOY Bible Study. I'm so excited because we are starting a new one by Kelly Minter.
I actually remembered a picture this time - GO ME!!!
We had a little ice breaker to start with & then dug into the study.
We had a few missing members this time but our little group has grown a bit so even if some have to cancel, we still have a good number to discuss together. It's all just falling into the perfect place. God is so cool like that to orchestrate things.
Then it was time to head home & I picked up some dinner - yeah, that's how much time I spent at Chasity's again. Dinner time by the time I got home. I really should just keep a sleep over bag at her house :)
It was time for me to get in the shower - give Bruno his weekly bath & get settled in....
I have been so giddy about it since I heard it was happening & was beyond excited that it was finally here. I can't even put into words. I love anything Musical anyways & am so excited that TV is really promoting these things lately.
I'll always be happy to end my weekends with a musical & a warm day... Where do I put in to have that happen as well every Sunday evening?
Another weekend... & confession? My bare Christmas tree is still up. Give me a break though, it did have gifts under it until this weekend. Now that the gifts are gone, maybe we'll FINALLY get it down. It is February, so also don't be surprised if I put hearts with some red crepe paper all over it.
So did you have warm weather where you were?
Anyone else still have Christmas sprinkled in your life?
Did you watch Grease Live?????
