A long weekend... how nice they are... how much they throw me off on what day it really is.
Seriously, how does missing one day of work throw you into such a confusion?
I'll take the confusion any day though.
& even though it was a longer weekend, that just meant more to cram in... here's to another busy weekend.
Here's some of the highlights.
... if you know me, you know I'm always stopping at Starbucks on Friday to kick off the weekend. So with Thursday being my last day of work, I made the appropriate changes. Thursyay works for Friyay. & Ricky benefited too when I bought him home a drink too. Winners all around!! Plus, it was National Coffee Day so it was a perfect celebration.
... I have given up on 'sleeping in'... on my day off, I'm up at 7am. I guess that is technically sleeping in when you're used to getting up at 5am
... Finished reading my latest book.. the MOST DEPRESSING BOOK IN THE WORLD
... I got to pick up my nieces at the bus stop on Friday & have our own "girls night out" to celebrate their birthday that isn't until next week - but they're going to be 12. They are having friends over & going to the movies with them... so good ole Aunt Bec ain't going to compete with that so I made sure to get them early. Plus, we wanted to see Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children at the movies on opening night.
... Don't bother seeing this movie. It's a total thumbs down. I knew going in with the character's 'peculiar talents' not matching the book, I was going to have issues. But man, the movie was just BADDDDDD. They changed so much of the end - like, I'm not even sure what they were doing. They basically made up a ridiculous ending that is NOTHING like ANY of the books. So I'm not sure if they consider that the end that was at the end of the 3rd book? I dont get it. It was just dumb.
Like, there was a 'battle scene' that you can tell was supposed to be serious - there was a lady laughing so hard, I thought she had lost her mind. I dont think anyone knew how to react.
I will say - I did love the girl that played Miss Peregrine... even though the book made her out to be such an older lady. Bygones.
... poor nieces though - the Hallows in the movie totally freaked them out. Especially when they were eating a pile of eye balls. #notkidappropriate
|When I asked them how they felt seeing the Hallows...|
Sophia & her drama... yep, she's my niece alright
... I took the twins on a shopping spree. They are at that age where I'm not attempting to buy their gifts. I told them if it were up to me, I'd be buying Disney dolls & Belle dressess for them. Yeah, I got eye rolls on that. They did make me happy though when they both picked out a book to get. #readersrock
... Sophia picked out some combat boots. Are those back in style? They looked adorable on her though.
... We had to wait in line at McDonalds for 15 minutes for an apple pie & a hashbrown. Seriously? & when we got it, the apple pie was COLD & then the hashbrowns had 2 thrown in - not even in any paper or anything - just tossed in. McDonalds? What is wrong with you?
... Saturday, poor Ricky had to work. Boo... boo... booo...
... & Saturday was also a day for celebration - my momma's birthday!!! YAHOO!!!!! I had gotten a cake & my brother & his gang came over & we got to sit outside enjoying the beautiful weather... & making sure none of their new rescue cats got out of the house. One escaped & I was freaking out thinking that little baby was going to run in the woods - or right out to the street.
|Just peek out the door! No coming outside little girl!!!|
... Sunday was church & MSM, where I was a total fail at paper airplane making. Drats. I made a plane & got picked to get in a challenge & my plane basically made a loop & came back to me every time. If Boomerang planes were the winners, give me the award! #dontworkthatway
... Went to Old Navy to take back the dresses I ordered online - only to find two more dresses that I LOVE!!!
... Headed to do a Senior session. I did her brother's senior pictures last year & just instantly loved their momma, so when she got in touch with me to do her youngest daughter's pictures, I was thrilled to see them again. I so love when I get comeback business. I truly do become invested in all my clients. It ended up being such a perfect day for pictures with cloud cover & cool temps. It doesnt get any better than that.

... Picked up some Chuy's for dinner for Ricky & I
... Time to upload pics & start editing. Senior pictures are so tough to narrow down. Teenagers are just naturally photogenic & I know parents want all the memories.
And now, we're back to Monday. It is Monday, right?
How was your weekend?
Finally feeling like Fall in your area?
Does your McDonalds make you wait FOREVER?
