Birthday weekend = Success

I had a really great time this weekend and honestly, nothing really out of the ordinary happened. Weird how that works out. Friday night, I picked up two of the girls for the weekend. It was only Cordie and Paige because Hannah had the ACT's and Elsa had a birthday party to go to. I was rather disappointed at first when I found out they weren't coming, but I sucked it up. They are just kids after all.

I wanted to get a new outfit for my date that Jason and I had planned on Saturday so we stopped at Marshall's on the way home. I found some super cute teal jeans with orange buttons and I got an orange flowy top to go with them. I have also come to the conclusion that I own a lot of orange and that is the first color I'm drawn to when shopping. I may have a problem.

Paige got to open her present when we got home since her birthday was on the 31st, I hadn't had a chance to give it to her yet. (Plus, it just arrived in the mail that day). I ordered a Doodlebox for her which was filled with really high quality art supplies. She absolutely loved it and told me it was her favorite present. She even received an iPod touch so that is saying something. Mom for the win.

Saturday, we took it easy and the girls wanted to go to the pool. I thought it would be too cold, but it seems like kids are immune to it. I stayed out of the water which was freezing but Cordie and Emmeline swam for quite a bit. Paige bugged out early, saying the water was too cold for her. She really just couldn't wait to dive into her new doodlebox and she painted me a picture.

Date night was a lot of fun. We went out to a local Italian restaurant and I ordered a 5oz. filet that came with a vegetable medley of asparagus, sweet potato and red pepper. Absolutely delicious and it was like the perfect serving size. I didn't feel like I was going to explode after eating. I even had room for some creme brulee for dessert.

Why the man won't smile is a mystery to me
The new Star Trek movie was next on the agenda so we stopped over at the liquor store to get some provisions. Nothing like sneaking tiny bottles of booze in your purse into the movie theater. We're classy like that. The movie was awesome and if you don't know who Benedict Cumberbatch is yet, I suggest you google him immediately. My favorite part of the night was after the movie was over, though. The clouds decided to open up and it started pouring rain. What else can you do, but take your shoes off and run in the rain. So much fun and I couldn't stop laughing like I was 6 years old again. Love moments like that.

Sunday was the perfect relax day. I stayed in my jammies pretty much the entire day until I had to leave to take the girls back. No working out this weekend, which I'm okay with. I was thinking that I should have tried to get a run in, but I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I did try on some bikinis while shopping and I actually didn't hate how I looked. I know what I need to do and I will get it done.

How was your weekend? Anyone else run in the rain?


  1. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend!! Love all your pics! :)
    My Sunday was spent cleaning Liv's room. If I said, "it looks like a bomb went off in here and people will think we are hoarders", once, I said it a million times! I rewarded myself with wine...lots of wine!
