Weekend Update

Well, it's that time of week ladies and gents...What did we do on Four Seasons Farm this week...let's review...
My MIL quickly became the source of most of my stress...I put out WANTED posters for the kids...Manga Dork missed 3 days of school due to illness...I entered a quilt giveaway (still crossing my fingers!)...and I received 3 bloggy awards!
I think the biggest thing this week was trying to decided whether or not to do my party. I am happy to say that the party is still ON!
Thank you to everyone who gave me trip ideas...I loved them all! I will let you know what we decide. No plans yet though.
On Saturday Dr. Hubby and I got the chance to go on a DATE! Hallelujah!
We piled the divas in the car...Manga Dork was having "sleepover hangover"...Wild Child was ready to go to Mama's house...and Cutie was pitching a fit...

And now for the handoff.

Dr. Hubby and I drove to town, returned some clothing to Peebles, and then made a run for the border! LOL! Seriously....we picked him up a burrito at Taco Bell and then proceeded to pick me up the healthiest lunch I have ever had (NOT!). I had a waffle cone filled with CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY TRUFFLE ice cream from Brewsters. I kid you not...the angels sang when I took the first bite. BTW...for my bday party I am having an ice cream cake with chocolate raspberry truffle inside....cause ya know...vampires are COLD and the red raspberry swirls kinda look like...you know what...shhh!

Then we went through the car wash while we ate our health food.

We visited several shops we each like...Hubby chose a leather shop that is so westerny I want to start saying things like "Howdy" and "Partner" and the Birkenstock shoe store. These ladybug shoes were in the "Not Birks" side of the store....how cute!
I chose the Scrap Shack and Borders. I got 2 new cuttlebug embossing folders ("You" and "Holly") and some adorable DaisyDs paper. Unfortunately I could not hunt down the Twilight movie guide...I don't think it is out in stores yet. Boo Hoo!

We did pick up Manga Dork the 2009 calendar! The pics are great!
I had never seen Carlisle close up...a young blond doctor...hmmmm...I have a weakness for those! LOL!

We hit TJMaxx and then tried to find Manga Dork a costume. The only place in the mall for those was Spencers. Let me tell ya...keep your eyes on the costumes...or you may get educated in something you don't want educated in at that store! All their costumes were a little short or too sleezy!


We went to see the movie Nights in Rodanthe. It was SO good. Total romance, BUT Dr. Hubby liked it too! Take some tissues...

We ended the night at Walmart (of course). We got home at midnight and stayed up til 2AM chatting and looking at things on the computer. Tonight he is taking his mom to the Haunted Prison....ooooooohhhh....spooooooky! LOL!

BTW....Mechelle you were right....I could rise above my trials with MIL...I picked up a bottle of her fave perfume and we gave it to her for babysitting for our date!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I look forward to a great week!

Sounds like a fun-packed weekend!! I saw the nights of Rodanthe the other day when my friend was staying with us and enjoyed it way more than I thought I was going to ... way to go Richard Gere.

Yay for working with MIL!! Have a great week!

Scrappy. Everyone is getting a kick out of you stalking yourself. We are all busting up over that one. Hilarious.

Wendy said...

So glad you had a date night. It's good to reconnect with the hubby and off load all the drama and stress of dealing with it!

Was not to sure about this movie, but now that you say it was very good...I'll go see it! I HATED their last movie together...Unfaithful!

I love the Twilight Calendar! ....drooling now....
Jennie Garth is a lucky woman to be living it up with Dr. Vampire...winkwink!

My hubby likes the Leather Store as well...funny...maybe it's the smell of the leather or a fantasy of being a Rock Star in his Fonzie Jacket...LOL!

Shanda said...

Sounds like a really fun night. I so want to see that movie. We only go about once per year so maybe this movie will be it. We usually just wait for the movie to come out and we pile up in bed with our jammies on and pop our own corn and just watch from home, but once in a while I like a good movie out.
Taking his mom to a spooky house. Will she really like this? Are you biting your tounge to not tell him to leave her there. Ha! ha!.
Ps. I hope he don't read this.
See Ya Shanda
