Weekend Recap

Happy Monday Friends!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Ours kicked off Friday night after work. I got home with the girls and we were all home together! We had some family time put the girls to bed and then did something we have not done together in a while. We relaxed on the couch TOGETHER and watched Nashville.

Saturday morning we got up Mike made pancakes with sprinkles as requested by #babybigtruck. I was up and out the door and at the nail salon by 9am to get a much-needed mani and pedi then it was home to pack up the girls so we could go to my friends 31 party with my mom and Ray for a little bit. While we did that Mike went fishing. On our way home the girls both fell asleep in the truck but #babybigtruck2 woke up as we got home. I wound up leaving #babybigtruck in the truck to sleep while I went in with the little one and fed her. Once #babybigtruck woke up we hung out at home for a bit. I wound up falling asleep on the couch for about 40 minutes which was a welcomed nap. Once I woke up I realized that our sitter would be coming soon so I started to get myself together. 5:30 rolled around and still no sitter which is odd because usually when we makes plans with her I give her a 30 minute window to come and she is usually on the early side. I texted her to see if she was ok because she is never late and lo and behold she had written the date wrong. She had us down for next Saturday. Thankfully she said she didn’t have anything going on and that she would come right over.

Date night was a blast. It was my turn to plan and I decided that even though we both really wanted to go shooting I would leave that up to Mike to plan and I planned for us to go rock climbing. We had so much fun! It was my first time and it had been years since Mike had been.

I would say the hardest part was after you got to the top! See for you to get down you have to lean back and let go and then you belay down. Well yeah that was scary especially the first time. The first time I got to the top I looked down and the instructor said ok lean back and let go and I said for real?!? He laughed and said yes for real. Scary. Our last climb we did the easy wall and did it blindfolded.

After we were done rock climbing we went to dinner at Applebees. While we were there we were talking about tattoos because while we were climbing the shooting thing came up and I said next date night shooting and tattoos! I was kidding but at dinner we were talking about tattoos and now I have a couple of more concrete ideas of what I want to get and where. I won’t be able to get any tattoos until after I am done nursing but at least I have more of an idea! After dinner we went to Target. We had to pick up a few things and we figured while we were kid free it would be quick.

Sunday morning we got up got dressed and set out for church. After church the girls and I went to a play date with the mama tribe! Good time was had by all especially the kids as they have not seen each other since Christmas time or even a little before that. On our way home from the play date again the girls fell asleep in the truck.

Seriously right after I snapped this photo #babybigtruck2 started to wake up so I took her inside and again #babybigtruck snoozed in the truck for about an hour. After she woke up we finished getting lunches for Monday together than we decided we would go to the diner for dinner and then to Target.

Wait weren’t we at Target on Saturday? Why yes we were however Sunday morning I was looking for the protein powder I picked up and some other things and realized it was among the missing. I found the receipt from the night before and 3 things that I know we put in our cart were not even on the receipt. I think what happened was when we were checking out Mike put things on the belt and when he did he separated some things and they obviously did not get added to our order. #oops

While we were at the diner #babybigtruck kept pointing out a lady. She would say mom look a lady! The first few times I kept saying yes she’s eating stop pointing. Finally in a very serious tone she said again Mom look at this lady! So I turned around and sure enough she was pointing to a lady and it was the primary caregiver for #babybigtruck2 Miss Krystal. She came by our table and chatted for a few minutes and then asked if she could take #babybigtruck2 to her table to show her parents because apparently she had been raving to them about her.

We hit up Target got the few things we thought we got the first time and then some and then went home to start the evening routine. By 7:30pm both girls were in bed and I finished up some last minute chores around the house and by 8pm I was sitting on the couch enjoying an hour of mommy quiet time.

Another great weekend in the books! Have a great Monday!





  Hugs, Nikki
