This Is Way Too Much For You To Read And I Apologize

The weekend began with Pappasito's. Oh yes, it did.

For those of you that have never eaten at Pappasito's, then please let me know so I can add you to my prayer list.

It was Heather's birthday so the girls got together to celebrate. It was SO MUCH FUN. Lindsee and I split fajitas and there is just something magical about those tortillas. Love. LOVE.

Oh, and I had a Diet Coke. It was glorious.

Some of the girls headed back to Heather's to play cards but I rushed home as I had to wake up early the next morning to take my Grant to the airport for his annual fishing trip with his dad and brother. However, when I got home I learned that there had been a slight.... scratch that... major change of plans and the trip was cancelled. It is a LONG story that involved some very late night and last minute decisions that cannot be written all out here on the blog but the best decision was for the trip to be postponed. I was glad to not have to wake up at the crack of dawn and take him to the airport :)

Saturday morning I woke up and got ready for my little brunch party! Some of the girls from our Bible study group came over for breakfast. Christen brought the yummiest breakfast casserole (remind me to get that recipe from you, Christen!). I made cinnamon rolls and we had coffee and chatted. It was so fun and the girls were confused as to why Grant was walking around the backyard when he was supposed to be out of town!

Saturday afternoon I sat on my butt and watched "In Her Shoes" and took a nap. Because that i what Saturday's are made for.

Then, Grant and I drove to the golf course and I drove the cart and talked to my friend Julie while our husbands played golf. Well, Julie played too. She just wasn't quite as into it as the guys were. It was a pretty day though and I had a good time watching my husband do something he loves so much.

Following that, Grant and I headed over to catch the 9:00 showing of Iron Man 2. Very entertaining movie, but I felt like I have aged 30 years all of a sudden as I was having a hard time staying awake. The movie wasn't boring, but I was just soooo sleepy. I came home and went straight to bed by 12:00.

As a young and energetic 25 year old girl in my prime, I know how to par-ty.

Then, this morning, we made the executive decision to sleep in. We rarely do it, but we skipped church this morning. I know, I know, we are terrible people. But I woke up at 10:30 and that hasn't happened since college. Actually, that's a lie. It was probably about 6 months ago but still, it was wonderful.

Then I got up and made waffles for breakfast. And by "made waffles" I mean that I put 2 Eggo's in a toaster. I am so domestic.

Following that, I showered to wash the golf course off of me and then helped Grant out in the yard a little bit. You see, my husband has the moments of pure insanity where he decides that he doesn't like the grass that we have in our backyard. He is very into grass and decides that he wants new grass.

So he rents a sod cutter from Home Depot, pulls up every blade of grass we have, than re-soils it and re-seeds it with the new grass that we've purchased. He was in the yard for approximately 196 hours this weekend and I am exhausted just from watching him.

I was bummed as I got a kick to decorate the front porch and put some potted plants there but they didn't have the flowers I wanted at Lowe's and I just got all sad and decided to cancel my project.

I promise you this post is almost over. We have made it to Sunday at around 4:00. We are almost there. If you have stopped reading, I totally don't blame you. This is mind-blowingly boring, isn't it?

I went grocery shopping. I was buying body wash for myself and then I saw the Old Spice body wash and there was a $1.00 coupon for it and I started giggling to myself as I thought of that silly commercial so then I just went ahead and bought some body wash for Grant. Advertising works, y'all.

Came home. Watched 27 Dresses.

Cooked Pioneer Woman's meatloaf (YUM) and made mashed potatoes to last us through the week.


Going to bed.

You are dismissed.


  1. laughed out loud at the "made waffles" comment. :)

    Have a wonderful week!

  2. Speaking of Christen's recipes (I'm assuming it's the Christen I know here because of the spelling) you HAVE TO have her make you her cranberry bar things. THEY ARE TOOOOO DIIEEEEE FOOOORRRRRRR. yum.

  3. ok so you may think I'm a sinner... but I need to be added to your prayer list - I have never eaten at Pappasito's...

  4. So glad I got to finally meet you in person on Friday. Need more chat time...will have to do it again soon!

  5. You skipped church on Sunday? Shame on you. I don't know if we can be BFF anymore. Except I'm totally kidding and maybe a little jealous.

    This was not boring. It was entertaining.

  6. I love you!! You make me laugh, so many funny things from praying for those that have never been to Pappasito's and then to putting eggo's in the toaster. I am so glad that you came Friday night and we will have to get together again so you can come and play cards!! Loved this!

  7. Girl I am exhausted just reading about your fun weekend! The fajitas sound yummy!
