It's funny how you can be so excited about something, plan it all so well, and then it just doesn't quite work out. That pretty much sums up a good chunk of my weekend, which is unfortunate.
Friday night went pretty well...I got my yummy sushi dinner that I wanted, and we relaxed like I was hoping. We went to bed decently early, and I got an amazing amount of sleep.
Saturday morning we got up early and dropped off Addie to be groomed and stay the night at her favorite daycare place. She went to the same place in Plano for almost two years, and when I got my new job we had to switch. She still loves that place so much and gets excited whenever she gets to go back. It's pretty cute. Check out her new haircut. Adorbs.
After dropping off the fur baby we picked up Arsen's parents and dropped them off at DFW airport. They're spending a little over a week in Salt Lake City visiting his dad's sister. One observation I made is that the amount of luggage that they take for a week long trip is less than what Arsen and I take for an overnight stay. Not surprising.
Then we went back home to get ready to head out for our fun day in Fort Worth. This is where it all fell apart. We started watching Lost while we ate our lunch, and then we were sucked in for like two episodes. That show does it every time! Then I somehow got inspired to mop the hardwood floors, do the dishes, and a little laundry before showering and getting ready. By the time we finally got around and left the house it was almost four, and we were supposed to be at Arsen's friend Adam's house by 5:30, so...
Needless to say we didn't get to do my fun tour of Fort Worth that I had planned. But we did end up having a really fun night with a lot of good friends. It's so funny how different things are than when I met all these guys in college. We sat at a few tables talking and having a few drinks for a few hours, then left to go home around one. In the past none of us ever would have considered leaving before the lights came on at the end of the night..now we were home in our sweats eating pizza by that time. Unbelievable.
One super exciting thing that happened this weekend is that I got my package in the mail from Amanda at Maggiano Takes Austin. I won her big giveaway last week and I couldn't be more excited...it was like my birthday or Christmas! It's the perfect way to brighten my day, a bunch of free stuff :) Look at all my fun little goodies!
Now that the week has started, it's back to reality (blah). Tonight we did some grocery shopping and cooked a super delicious recipe for Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese I got from Sam over at Reddy or Knot. Seriously people, she has the best recipes over there...I think I've pinned every single one of them to my recipes board. And they are all "skinny" versions, so even better! Go check her out :)
I ended the night cuddling with my husband, playing catch with my crazy little dog, and you guessed it, watching Lost. I'm so predictable. Now, on to the rest of the week...
