What a busy weekend … I’m going to go to work Monday morning just to rest up from the weekend. ha!
Friday I got caught up a little around the house. Ok, about all I managed to accomplish was cleaning the hardwoods, but they really needed it. We met up with DD & family for dinner. Friends from church have a BBQ business on the side, and the first Friday of the month they sell BBQ and sides at the Gun Club. The meat is awesome, and their sweet potato fries are THE BEST. This is their last Friday at the Gun Club (a change in his “real” job involves too much travel to be able to devote the time to preparing BBQ).
Saturday morning DD invited me to a girls’ day out. She, T#2 and T#4 were going to go do early Christmas shopping (in case she’s unable to get out to shop after her surgery in December) … and they invited me along. That just made my heart sing! We picked up almost all their gifts for the Ts … and a few from us, too. We had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory … it was the first time I’d ever eaten there, and talk about overload when looking the menu! Finally, I just picked something … and it was wonderful! I purposely haven’t gone to their website to check out the nutritional information because I’m sure it was NOT healthy! We got 2 slices of cheesecake to share … mmmm, yummy!
We got back to DD’s just in time for dinner … so they invited us to join them for dinner and a movie. Dinner wasn’t anything fancy … BLTs and chocolate shakes, but they sure were good! And we watched Cars 2. T#3 loves Cars and Cars 2. We enjoyed Cars 2, although it didn’t seem to be quite as suitable for little bitties (DD suggested it was Pixar’s version of Mission Impossible for kids).
Sunday morning found us at church. We stopped at the grocery store on the way home to ingredients for a meal for a family from church … when I told DH that I was going to make them lasagna, he asked me to make some for us. That meant that I spent the afternoon making two batches of lasagna. We spent the evening just relaxing and getting ready for another busy week.
It was a busy weekend … but a wonderful one!
