The weekend that had me seeing a lot of pink...

I'm grumpy... I mean GRUMPPYYYY this morning.

I just didn't want it to be Monday.  Not yet.  One more day.  Please?

There's just never enough time to relax on a weekend. Not in my world.  I need a weekend for my weekends.  I still say a 4 day work week & a 3 day weekend needs to happen.  Where's Mr. Trump?  If he becomes President -I want it to happen.

Did everyone just shudder at the idea of Donald Trump becoming President?


Friday was my daddy's birthday so I got home from work & waited on Ricky & we headed over to congratulate him on another year of life

Hello to me in the reflection of the window
You don't know the hassle I went through to get a cake that was all one flavor. I guess the new 'hot' thing at the grocery is half & half cakes.  Half white / half chocolate.  As much as I love chocolate, I think chocolate cake is disgusting.  Just give me a PLAIN CAKE PEOPLE!!! ... They finally found one in the back of the cabinet....

& then I realized that I shouldn't even care.  21 Day Fix don't allow a big hunk of birthday cake.  Shucks.

But it was fun talking to the girls as they are gearing up to start middle school on Wednesday.  They are really excited about it.  Growing up. I don't like it one bit.

Saturday had me up bright & early to head down to Target.  I had 3 baby showers for the weekend & was going in it completely not prepared so I was at Target's doors when they opened.

It's a 2 fold situation on being at Target that early.  The crowds were non-existent.  Thumbs up!  But the workers are in full force in every aisle stocking up.  Thumbs Down!  I mean EVERY aisle, carts, people in red shirts & khaki's.  Move on people. Let me through. I have a lot of pink I need to get here.

Let me tell you - shopping for 3 baby showers at once?  I think I heard my debit card cry ... ouch!  Ricky's mouth even dropped at my total.  I asked him if he'd rather me just not have friends or family?   ... I never did get an answer on that one...

But we got home early - even stopped for an early Starbucks treat.  & then I had an hour to get my run in - so off to the treadmill I went.

Then it was time to get cleaned up & pick up my mom & we headed out to my cousin's baby shower...

We were only there for a short time & wish I could have stayed longer but I already had plans for the evening... but I didn't walk away empty handed. In just being there an hour, I walked out with a door prize. BAM!  Go me! :)

Baby shower

I had to run & do some quick things in Louisville & then drive all the way back home, get mom  home, run to pick up Ricky & then we headed over to our friends house for a game night...

I think we all needed a good fun night together...

We introduced them to the world of Password - a classic Ricky & I love... & then broke out the Headbandz ....

I am AWFUL at this game. 

I think I was the only one that was still on my first card at the end of the game....

Let this picture be noted of all the tears on my eyes where I couldn't get the answer & everyone was laughing because ... DUH!!! ... I knew I was a building.  I was given the clue that "You love someone who is there"... So Chasity WORKS in a hair salon & she just kept holding my hand & telling me to look at her & try & guess... I was blank.  I could not have been more blank in my life.  It's so dang frustrating!  ... but the best time!

I get hair salon when this guy gets Spiderman... really?  You can see behind him - & in the above picture where the whole basement is red - he's a Spiderman NUT. 

This game was rigged.

No... I'm just dumb.

But I still love a good game.

Sunday had me up doing my workout before we even headed to church.  Yoga.

Ricky ... & Harvey... even joined in a little bit.

Ignore Ricky's pants are inside out...he does that all the time
I think he's trying to start a new fad
Then it was time to head to Merge for Small Group Day.  I love our conversations range so much.  We ended up talking about ring worm, essential oils, throwing rocks at brothers heads... & of course, Jesus :)

I had another baby shower right after church but ended up not getting out of church till it was too late to make it on time... & I'll be seeing that momma soon anyways so I'll take her gift later.  Drats.

But that left time for Ricky & I to go out to lunch & then we ran into some old church friends.  It was so great to see them & to talk about the church they are going to & just get their thoughts on some things.  It's like my mom said - God put them in the same restaurant as us & had me missing that baby shower for a reason.  It was great talking to people I trust their opinion on & has such biblical wisdom.

Ricky & I then left to run up to the hospital to see our friend's new baby!!!  This is the couple I just did their maternity pictures less then 2 weeks earlier.  This baby made an early appearance.  But is perfectly healthy & beautiful!

I have just been loving getting my hands on all these new babies lately!!!

But another girl... MORE PINK!!  GIRL POWER is everywhere!!!!

We got home just in time for us to make out bills... which reminds me I'm going on a spending strike.  Seriously.  SERIOUSLY!!!... & then we went outside & was able to meet our new neighbors!  How funny is it that the wife - whose name is BECKY :) - comes from the same area Ricky & I come from in Louisville.  Like her family lives in the same area my parents lived in - she went to the same high school Ricky did - we all knew the same street names we talked about.  Small world man... small world...

But it was great talking to them, meeting them, getting to know a little bit about them...  excited to finally get to chat with them.  Good neighbors are a blessing - we've learned that through the years with our amazing neighbors we've had.

& then... whew... it was late.

& time for the weekend to end.

I honestly couldn't believe how fast it all went by... I can't believe how many miles I drove this weekend... I can't believe how much fun we had.

It was definitely a memorable weekend!

How was yours?
What was the best thing you did?
Did you get to rest any this weekend?  (If so, I'm jealous)


  1. Three baby showers this weekend - I'm exhausted just thinking about that!! I've never heard of the game password but it looks like a lot of fun! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Headbanz is SUCH a fun game - haven't played it in forever, but really like it!!!

    Love the picture with you + baby! So sweet!

  3. if donald trump becomes president... i'll book our flights to australia the same day. no thank you.
    what a busy weekend! you deserve mondays off!

  4. Okay that Headbandz game sounds like so much fun! I need to play it! Sounds like you had a crazy busy weekend! I was so not ready to be back to reality today either.

  5. Once again, I'm tired just from reading your weekend post! You need a weekend to get over your weekend!

  6. Boom...seems like you sneeze and the weekend is gone in a flash! That's how I feel every single week! We went out on Saturday (had to have been THE hottest day in ATL) to do a little car shopping. You can't just browse without the salespeople hounding you. Not on my list of favorite things to do! Love seeing all your pics! Ever played Taboo? It's a HOOT!

  7. Oh my gosh, no wonder you need another day of the weekend! I'm exhausted just reading this! I love to be at the stores early but you're right about the shelf stockers. Such a pain! Glad you were able to get stocked up on gifts though! :)

  8. Weekends are way too short under the best of circumstances. You, though ... wow oh wow is all I can say.

  9. I don't know how you did all of that this last weekend. Sound like it was a lot of fun and nothing better than a new little baby to hold! I did go to meet a blog friend which was 75 miles each way but other than that we normally don't go anywhere on the weekend. We have no family or couple friends here in CA.

  10. I get worn out just reading about your weekends! Thankfully, mine was much quieter, though probably not near as much fun. I did get some rest. I had a very short nap on Saturday and a couple hour nap on Sunday. Now, that's my kinda weekend! ha

  11. I hated working the early morning shifts at Target (used to be a sales associate) for that reason. It is awkward to put things away while people are trying to shop. They should make an overnight crew do it.

  12. Yay for lots of birthdays! :) And you don't like chocolate cake?! First cereal now this... I just don't know anymore... haha!

  13. What an awesome weekend! Yay for birthdays and babies!
