During this past week I hung out with children whose diapers I used to change who:
- whooped my bootie at Super Mariocart multiple times. And I was trying people!
- sang an entire verse of the latest Pussy Cat Dolls song to me
- have more electronic equipment that I do
- are better at using my electronic equipment that I am
- one of the youngest is now in the double digits age-wise
- rolled their eyes at me because I said something “old-fashioned”
- asked me multiple times why I don’t have any children
- ARE GETTING MARRIED? Excuse me?!
God help me if they have a baby before I do!!!
So I am a whole week late on my last weekend’s post. No judgement. I work over 60 hours a week. I can only do so much!
Now, moving on. Last weekend was so good that I am still recovering this weekend. How am I recovering? I was home and in bed by 7:30 tonight. Mission accomplished!
So last Friday night we celebrated one of my favorites’ birthday. We started out with dinner at one of her favorite places and then we headed out for some more fun times and went dancing.
The Birthday Girl and her Hubby, Matt.
The crew doing what we do best.
Amy and BMan.
Colleen, Liz, and Hilary
Hubby had to retire early so these guys were my bodyguards. They rock.
Matt yelling at the DJ who was doing a terrible job.
D, Amy, Melissa, and I. Sorry for the weird look on my face. It was past my bedtime and I was waiting for the caffeine to kick in!
The very next day we had our very own 20sb Nashville mini-meetup! Our girl EP just happened to be in town, and since we already consider her a Nashvillian, we were so honored to have her join us! Can I just say, Bloggers, yes with a capital “B”, are the best. We sat, we ate, we chatted, it was fun times. In attendance were Courtney, Katie, EP, Hilary, Liz, and myself. We made friends fast. That is all I will disclose from the conversation. It lasted for HOURS. I hated to leave. Love you all ladies! I do find it funny that when “bloggers” get together we don’t talk about blogging. Well, yes, it comes up, but for the most part we just talk about our lives. So awesome. I love that its not “shop talk.”
After I totally lost track of the time with the awesomeness of the conversation, I raced home to meet Hubby and pick up some great friends, Mr. and Mrs. Peanut, who were joining us to go see a friend play a show. Andrew did a great job and we ate and laughed and hung with Amy and BMan for most of the night.
We returned home that night exhausted and ready for a great day at church the next day. Last week we had a guest speaker, Stephen Mansfield. He authored “The Faith of Barack Obama” and “The Faith of George W. Bush” and he challenged us greatly during his time with us. I am so excited to read his books next. We opted out of a Super Bowl party that day. We were so exhausted we went home and spent time with my adorable nephew and family to watch the game.
And that is it. And then Monday came with a ton of new opportunities. I hope to tell you all about that very soon! Stay tuned peeps!
