Anyway. We had a busy weekend. Good busy. But for those of you who are interested, this is what we did:
*Saturday morning: I went to a big consignment sale and didn't buy anything. But I vowed to go back at 12:30 for the 1/2 price sale, crossing my fingers that the totally adorable kids table and chairs was still there when I came back.
*Saturday later morning, we took Gaga and Papa out to breakfast at a little teeny breakfast place for Gaga's birthday. Chase was tired, but for Gaga's birthday present, we let her entertain him the whole time.
*Saturday afternoon, Papa watched the boys as Bryan slept off more painkillers. My mom and I went thrift store shopping (maternity cords for 2 bucks!!) and then hit the consignment sale again...and my cute table was still there!! I'll have to take a photo tomorrow, but I got it!!! So excited!! (it really is all about the thrill of the hunt!)
*Saturday evening, we had a fun game night with some new couples that we met through church. Best idea ever: hiring a babysitter to play with the kids upstairs while the grownups had dinner and played games.
*Sunday morning, church. Great message, starting a new series about the Essential James.
*Sunday afternoon, lunch at Bojangles (who, by the way, has some awesome breakfast biscuits. I have been having crazy cravings for egg and cheese sandwiches!) and then a quick trip to Sam's to get wipes...I got desperate and bought some store brand crappy ones last week because I ran out, and I've been regretting it ever since. Tip: Harris Teeter baby wipes do NOT get the job done. Suck it up and spend the money for Huggies.
*Sunday evening, DSAC fundraiser with the Charlotte Checkers...hockey for all you not in the know. My parents met us there and we got to go on a Behind the Scenes tour before the game. It was kind of cool, to see the locker rooms and the sports medicine area and things. Although I felt a little like a stalker, because all the team's street clothes were hanging up, and the dirty laundry bins were out. Do any of you remember that commercial- I can't remember what it was for, but the guy would hide in the dirty laundry buckets in the locker room to get team merchandise or something? That's all I could think about. I could probably convince Ian to hide in there to get something good...
Now Bryan and I are winding down in front of CSI, trying to figure out why the weekends go by so quickly...
