And in panic overdrive.
Blake went on his first field trip on Friday. It was a great time according to him, though he was sad that I wasn't able to go.
(I seem to have issues with sunshine in all of my photos this week, but in my defense, it's the first time we'd seen it in a while and all of the windows and blinds were open in celebration)
I did manage to finally obtain a lovely dress for the wedding. And so I spent Friday afternoon trying to find jewelry and hunt down pantyhose in my size. Apparently, we no longer wear hose with feet anymore? What's the deal with that (I'm looking at you Target)?
I also fell in love with a pair of green pants. They were a steal and I want to wear them every day until my husband hides them from me because they remind him of Kermit the Frog.
(did I forget to mention how cheap they were, because they were ohmygodcheap)
Thankfully, the photos of this event have not been shown to me yet. And if I can't see it, it didn't happen!
Afterward, we joined friends at Northgate. Because that's the place a bunch of 30 year olds should hang out on a Friday night, dressed in party dresses and suits. But, it was still fun and we were still home and in bed before we could turn into pumpkins.
The weather was beautiful this weekend and so the boys all spend Saturday and Sunday out back playing and helping their dad rebuild our fence, which was blown over during the hurricane force winds that came through here Tuesday (and yes, I realize they weren't really hurricane force, but if it gives you something to roll your eyes about, feel free to do so). They reset the posts, reinforced the old boards and got it back up.
(the finished product, thanks to our super fabulous neighbors)
Saturday night, we had planned on grilling the assload of chicken we've had stuffed in our freezer forever, but the day's work caught up with Mr. BFG and we settled on burgers for the kids instead and stopped by our sad little Blockbuster that's closing soon in the hopes that we could stock up on some deals.
(note that I didn't say "good" deals, because...yeah)
Other highlights from Saturday....
I love this shirt. Seriously adorable, right? It's one of our auction items from a local boutique and if they hadn't given me the tiniest size possible (as in, Size Anorexic And/Or Twelve Year Old Undeveloped Girl) I'd just go ahead and keep it.
And also, this happened.Before I'd had the opportunity to have my coffee or clean our bedroom (eek).
We spent our Sunday outside and trying to get everything and everyone organized for Monday. It mostly worked. I watched Changeling (sad and creepy), Cast Away (depressing) and Black Swan (sad, creepy and depressing) while I folded laundry and made a grocery list (and didn't go to the store).
And then we wrapped up the evening like this...
