Why cant they all be like that? Am I asking too much?
Friday kicked off with me stopping at Starbucks where I though I was going to THROW DOWN... not really... but dont mess with my drink.
The line, as usual, was wrapped around the building. Happy Hour is a legit THING at our small Starbucks & they've been having a hard time keeping up it seems. So I figured I'd go in & order... only to find the line long in there as well. #firstworldproblems
But I place my order & sit at a table checking my phone when I noticed the people after me were getting their names called. What happened to my drink? It was then that this lady that ordered in front of me, I noticed her drink & thought I saw my name on it.... I think she saw me looking at her & tried to figure out why I was giving her the stare down. It was a few minutes later that I noticed she took the drink up to the counter & talked to the cashier & told her "This isn't my drink"...
The barista had to make my drink over & lo & behold, her drink was sitting on the counter already to be picked up... It didnt even look like the same thing. I had a grande mocha frappe - she had a like a venti vanilla frappe. Something you wouldnt get mixed up. She basically ended up drinking a full free drink.
I spent Friday night getting caught up on my DVR shows - OHHH Scandal & Grey's Anatomy... Shondaland has me all in a frenzy.
Saturday, I ended up sleeping in till 8am. I cant tell you how long its been since I've slept in that late. It was perfect weather to sleep in with the windows open & a cool breeze & the dogs all snuggled in. Perfect Saturday sleeping weather.
I got up & cleaned up around the house a little & then started working on some projects. I ended up doing something for a friend... I cant talk about it yet because its a surprise... but I ended up loving how it all turned out...
& then started working on more lettering projects.
I tried this time doing hand lettering with a paint brush. SOOO different. I dont care for using paints on canvases because the canvases are so "bumpy" & the paint seems blotchy to me & seems to 'skip' on the bumps of the canvas. Its all a learning experience.
|Maybe I need to try new canvases?|
It was time for me to do my virtual 5k with my buddy Nathalie - the Best Friends Forever 5k.
We had planned on doing this for awhile but my friend totally jacked up her ankle after a fall. & when I say jacked up, I mean she has pins holding her ankle together now. That's jacked up. But she's all about keeping a strong body & mind & she has been healing up so nicely & quickly after everything she's been through. So we planned on the date to knock this race out together...
it's so much fun knowing you are doing a run while your friend is doing it as well.
I always love when we send each other pictures of our race & just the support of one another. I just love this lady oodles & oodles!!!
It felt good to run to. A 5k is so much nicer than 13.1 miles. SO MUCH NICER!!!
It was just the most beautiful day... & it was so funny because I was running up at the local middle school & noticed someone playing tennis... come to find out, it was my niece playing the end of a tournament! What were the odds of that?
|Look at those skies!!!!|
I ended up leaving my 5k to head down to find a gift card at a local coffee shop I've never been at for a friend's birthday ... only to spend 30 minutes finding this place & get in there & was told they were sold out of gift cards. COME ON.... its Mother's Day weekend - how do you run out of gift cards?!??!?
But not all had failed when I walked out & back to my car & found a yarn store!!!
BE STILL MY HEART!!!
I used to visit this yarn store when it was across town but never knew where they moved to.... this is dangerous I know now where its at.
After fighting traffic to get back out of the downtown area, I went to pick up some dinner for Ricky & I... I have been so addicted to the salads at Topp't lately. They are THE BEST!!! ... I actually want another one now just thinking about them...
I spent Saturday night watching Me Before You & crying harder this time than the first time I saw it... man... in the heart with the feels. Will Traynor forever!!!
Sunday - Mother's Day....
I ended up stopping at Starbucks before church & grabbing another iced coffee... & again, it took about 20 minutes to get my drink. This is getting a little crazy - its not even Happy Hour at 10am... geez...
Youth group was down a lot in attendance... I figured everyone was spoiling their mommas.... but it was such a good message on how we need to be praying for others. We had a small group of girls & it was the best getting to really chat about real life stuff with one another.
I left from there to go celebrate with my momma...
My brother & his gang were there but couldn't stay long since he works 3rd shift & he needed to go get some sleep. But my nieces stuck around & we had fun playing some games & they drove around their Papaw's lawn mower & checked out the pond to see if something was moving in it.
|Look at that bottle up in the air #bottleflip|
We drove up to McDonalds to pick up some food with all the girls & then I had to drop my nieces off at home so they could go to dinner with their other grandmother.
I got to spend some more time with my momma & daddy & then headed home to my fur babies...
It was such an amazing evening. The heat is coming in this week so I took total advantage of the cool evening with a book & my doggies & soaked up the fresh air.
|Oh, my little blind boy listening to me saying his name.... poor guy|
I got a phone call from Julie & the boys wishing me a Happy Mother's Day & getting to catch up on life...
& then it was just time to settle in to get ready for a new week... yeehaww #totallysarcastic
So how was your weekend?
What did you do for Mother's Day?
Is it still cool in your area or has it turned to summer yet?
