Memorial Day Weekend

I spent the day getting ready for the weekend, running errands, doing some shopping then coming home to get ready for a date.  After my date, I had planned on driving to my sisters to stay for the weekend.  I got there around 10 and we stayed up and talked till about 11:30 then finally headed to bed. 
We got up and talked a little bit then went for a walk downtown.  We walked down by the river and then stopped by a little coffee shop and got these yummy treats....
We came back to her house then got ready to go to the ball field to see my BFF's middle boy play in a ball tournament.  It was going to be a hot day!!
Little monkey!
We watched him play ball then went back to her house to shower and change so we could all go out to get something to eat.  We ate at a local mexican restaurant and they had some of the best guacamole I have ever eaten!  After we got done eating, we went back downtown to the new park that is down by the river.  That park is amazing!!  The boys had so much fun!!

We then walked to Coldstone Creamery (or creamstone coldery as my BIL called it) and sat there and ate some ice cream then we all went home to get ready for some more ball games tomorrow.  My sister and BIL had some friends that had just recently moved and were having a bonfire and some people over so we went there.  We all had a good time talking, having some drinks and playing some games.  I crashed when we got back to the house. 
We got up and once again got ready to go watch some ball games.  Michelle and Maddie met us there and his team "short gamed" the other team so we were only there a short time before that game was over and they didn't play again for another couple of hours.  We went to get something to eat then met them all back down at the park so the boys could play for a little bit.  We don't have anything like this kind of park where these boys are from so they were all pretty excited to play here. 
Taking a little time for a team photo
So cute!! 
#23 is my fave!!
They played 4 games that day including the championship game.  They were 2nd out of 16 teams and came home with this huge trophy!!  They played really well!!
Love this little boy!!
We left the ballpark a little after 8 and I was on my way home by 8:30.  It was quite a long drive home but I made it before 11 and went straight to bed!!  I had to work the next day.
They called me for standby and I took it, I was so tired.  They only had 2 of us stay home but I never got called least my house is clean and all my laundry is done!!
Happy Memorial Day!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I was on standby from work for a few hours that morning but got called in around 9.  I went to work but didn't do much and they let me go back on standby around noon.  We had all ordered chinese so I stayed and ate with everyone. 
That's a good fortune if I say so myself!!
I decided to go to the mall and do a little shopping.  I got some new shoes, a few shirts and a maxi dress.  I had been looking for a maxi dress for a while and finally found one at Old Navy on clearance.  When I left the mall this is what it looked like....
A storm was brewing!
I literally got down the road about 10 minutes and was called back into work!!  It had gotten really busy and they had to have my help.  I worked the rest of the day and then came home to get ready to go home for Mother's Day.
I got up, packed my car and headed home.  I had a few errands to run when I got there and then it was back home to get ready for my parent's friends garden party.

We spent the day at my grandparents house, eating good food and dessert and sitting outside enjoying the nice weather before the rain starts this week!

Weekend Wrap-Up

It was a little cold when I got up and got ready to meet Niki out.  I still dressed for Spring, just put a sweater over it!!  Haha!!  I had gone to combat Thursday night and I was so sore.  I love that class!  We ran all our errands then I headed down to get my nails done.  I went back to her house and we touched up some paint around the house while her husband pressure washed the deck so it could be stained.  Later that night, we watched "We're the Millers".  It was really funny! 
I was awake pretty early, so I got up and got ready to head home for Kelsey's prom.  I took this selfie before I headed out.

Loved her flowers!!
The paparazzi!!
We sent them off to Prom and then Lindsay and I went to the mall.  She was looking for some work pants and I was looking for a maxi dress to wear to a garden party next weekend.  She got her pants but I didn't like anything I tried on.  She went on home and then I went to hang out with Michelle for a little bit before I met some friends out.  We had a good time listening to music and people watching and of course, doing the wobble!!
I was awake pretty early but was able to go back to sleep.  I got up  and talked to Mom for a little bit.  She made us some breakfast then I got my stuff together and headed home.  I tried to lay out for a little bit while I had my laundry going but it was hot and the bugs were out with a vengeance!!  I came in and got some stuff ready for work tomorrow, took a little nap and finished laundry.  It was a good weekend!!
