ode to the weekend.

Monday, September 29, 2008

01. My parents headed out of town this weekend, so Brian and I were left on parent-duty as my two younger sisters stayed with us. Hollie is 16 and Kirby is almost 11 so they pretty much take care of themselves…. The fighting however, is another story.
02. Friday night Brian, Aaron & Andrew headed to Iowa City to catch Saturday’s Iowa game- so we had a girl’s night!! Whoo hooo. It was fabulous and much needed. We ordered p-zones, drank lots of wine and watched the Grey’s 2-hour premiere, Sex and the City movie {amazing!} and What Happens In Vegas. It was a very successful girls night and another one will be coming soon.
03. So on Saturday, after we finished watching Iowa lose {bummer} my sisters and I ran some errands while the boys were on their way home. First we hit up Old Navy because I decided to return my jacket from the other week. I decided that I had enough jackets and would much rather have one of the pretty dresses that I wanted. We were in for quite the treat when we headed to checkout and were given 40% off of our purchase!! That’s right. I said 40%!!! Why am I not more of a weekend shopper? I walked out with all of these amazing items for a mere $38 after my return. Whoo hoo! Plus, I also got a Halloween costume for G and a cute water bottle! Amazing deals. I'm so happy with my purchases, but I'm left still wanting this and this. Too bad the only shopping in my future is thrifting. :)

04. Then we got some much-deserved Starbucks and headed to the library. Our favorite place to go together. We hung out there for a while and checked out with five bluray movies and seven books.
05. We returned home late Saturday afternoon, just as the boys returned. :) We got the girls some dinner and settled with their movies and books and headed out for a Mexican dinner with the gang.
06. Then we headed to a our favorite bar up the street and planted ourselves for the evening. The boys didn’t do much drinking since they had partied the night before {they are old ;)} so it was once again a ladies night! Only this time they were there to take care of us. Haha.

07. Got home late and headed to bed. Woke up the next morning feeling like CRAP. I really had drank that much so I wasn’t sure why I was feeling so bad, but my head was throbbing beyond belief. Brian put in One Tree Hill’s first season {ahh the memories…} in dvd in the player, brought me some toast, and left me to rest. He sure knows the way to my heart. :)
08. I stayed in bed all day long. No literally, all day. I watched the entire first season!!! My headache was just insane. I could barely even get up to go to the bathroom because it hurt that bad. Finally around 6:30 Sunday night I had some relief. It was still there, but much more livable. I could actually move around. So we ordered some pizza just in time to watch Desperate Housewives & Brothers & Sisters premiere.

I was pretty bummed that I missed out on our Sunday… pretty much my favorite time of the week. While it would have been nice to enjoy an entire day of bed and One Tree Hill- I really didn’t get to enjoy it since I was in pain. Bummer. And now I have nothing done around the house that I needed to, but hopefully the hubs and I can play catch-up tonight. All in all, it was a great weekend. It just once again flew by and that just stinks.

Did I mention how hard it was to get out of bed this morning? I could hear the rain hitting the porch, and the crisp, cool air blowing through the window. Ugh. I have a case of the Mondays today. Someone please make it better for me? Thank you. On the upside, I cannot WAIT for tonight’s One Tree Hill.

What a bummer on your Sunday! I also look forward to Sunday's, so I can imagine the pain, plus your Fri and Sat rocked! Too bad you couldn't have had a fully amazing weekend. :(
