Weekend Wrap-Up

Starting a little early this week....this was on Wednesday
Some girls from work got together for dinner and drinks at one of the best Mexican restaurants we have. It was $5.99 margarita pitchers night!!!  

Angie & I
Sara, Me, Angie, Sarah, Anne, Holly & Emily
I got standby today from work and didn't get near as much done as I wanted to.  I was hoping to bring a little luck to my Hoosiers but not so much. 

I hung out with Niki and family that night and put together a shelf...we were much more productive at her house than I was at mine!!
I got up and went to the gym.  I did body pump then stayed for spin class.  It hurt so good!!  I don't burn near as many calories in the morning as I do in evening classes because I usually just get up and go and don't eat anything but that's ok, still worth going!!  I got home and headed down to Niki's for a little bit.  We cleaned up some stuff outside there then I came home and got ready for trivia night.
My selfie stick came in the mail!!
My first picture with the selfie stick!!
Haha!! Michael thought he would help us out and hold it for us....not really the point!!  You could see his arm in every single picture and you can see the remote in my hand!!  Also, we totally got photobombed!!  We were cracking up!!
Too funny!!
Niki & I
I was not ready to get up when my alarm went off, I had a little too much fun the night before!  I stopped by McDonalds for a little pick me up. 
I was headed to the hospital to be a friends support while her Dr. was going to try to turn her baby from breech presentation to head.  Of course, this is where I work and so does she but we were way nervous because neither one of us had ever been in on a version.  I had only heard bad things about them, just how bad it hurts and looks gruesome.  The Dr. was busy that morning so we waited a while for him and then when he finally came it was time to get this show on the road.  Her husband and I stood on one side of her and the nurse and dr stood on the other side.  It was way more painful than what she was anticipating and after two tries he was not successful.  Hopefully the baby will just turn on his own!!
After that, I came home to get ready to meet J for dinner and a movie.  I was supposed to work Friday and he had a race on Saturday so today was our only option to meet up.  We went to see Insurgent...I haven't seen Divergent yet but he was able to tell me enough about it so I could get what was going on.  It was really good but we watched it in 3-D....not my favorite....and if we would of had the choice we would not have chosen 3-D.  After the movie, we went to eat at Cracker Barrel. 
I let him try first this time and he got it down to one, then it was my turn and I only got it down to three.  I tried again and almost got stumped again but he saw a better move and helped me get down to one pin also.  Isn't that sweet??  He has a cold and was really sore from the first race of the season so we called it a night after dinner and hopefully he'll get to feeling better by next week.

Weekend Wrap-Up~Charity Ball

It rained and rained and rained today.  I didn't know if it was ever going to end!!  Niki and I ran errands all day and the only good thing was the fact that we were cute rain boots and found all kinds of good stuff at TJMaxx!!  That place is either all or nothing for me!!  I came home and layed around for a bit until I had to get ready for my date.  It was still raining but at least it had slowed down a little bit.  Deana called me on my way out the door, I talked to her pretty much the whole way up there.  Hopefully I'll get to hang out with her and the girls sometime this week!  J and I met at Chili's for dinner and had talked about going bowling after.
My return snapchat to a friend who sent me a picture of her baby niece that said "isn't she presh?" and I said the same thing!!  So cute!!  He's looking up reviews on movies that we hadn't seen yet, which was only 1 or 2. 
I finished my drink while he was doing that!  These things are too good!!
We ended up going to see "The 2nd Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and I liked it but he didn't.  It was a love story with Kevin Costner in it, how could I not love it??  He was annoyed by the main guy's voice!  We were both so tired after the movie we decided to call it a night and head our separate ways.  Dating long distance isn't always so fun but I'll take it for the time being!!  I'm pretty sure he's worth it!!
I was up early and went to spin class and met my friend Amanda there.  Our friend Lucy was there also, it was like an OB nurse workout class!!  Haha!!  Everytime I go to that class I remember how much I don't like it, until it's done and I like the way I feel after!!  Feel the burn!!  I came home and lounged around and tried to take a little nap till it was time for get ready for the masquerade ball!!!

Just a little selfie before I left
Angie and I
She brought her daughters selfie stick with her and we had way to much fun with it!!
Patty, Angie & I
Me & Jen
Loved how my mask turned out!!
Selfie time again!!
Patty, Ang, Me & Jen
We were loving the selfie stick!!
Just some nurses at the ball!
Obviously a few drinks in...
My bid ticket with me & Angie's pick of the litter tickets just happened to also be J's racing number...I was hoping it was going to be good luck but it turned out not to be.  None of us won anything, but the guy behind us bought all kinds of stuff!!
Natasha, Patty & Angie
Haha, you can see the remote in my hand!!
OB girls!!!!
And this is why the selfie stick is so important...this is just me trying to get a selfie with just my phone and it's awful!!  Haha!!!  Good thing I ordered one for myself!!
LOL!!  I had a few cocktails by this time and I thought these signs were great!!!
One of our photo booth pictures!!
I wanted to sleep in but that didn't happen.  I'm lucky if I sleep till 7 anymore!!  I got up and it was so pretty outside I just wanted to enjoy it!!  I opened up the blinds and started cleaning!!  Haha!!  I went to Target and to get my car washed.  I love that I found these for my Easter eggs!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I'm glad I went ahead and shoveled the whole driveway yesterday, even though it probably would've all melted today!!  Even though it wasn't warm, at least the sun was out all day!!  I can smell spring coming!!  Soon!!!

I wasn't able to go to Evansville to get my nails done so I just went to a new place in Marion.  It wasn't busy at all so that was nice, but I wasn't impressed with the job she did unfortunately.   I laughed when I saw the name of the color I picked, and the color was a little too 80's frosty pink for me so I put a layer of gold glitter over it when I got home and I like it much better!!  It'll do for now and I'll just have to give myself a pedicure for the ball next weekend!!  I went toTarget and found way more than I needed, which is my norm. I don't think I know anyone who can walk in there and just buy what is on their list!!!  
I came home to get ready for my date!!  I felt like I hadn't seen him in forever but it's only been a week. We live two hours away from each other so it usually only works out for us to get together on the weekend.  I met hi for dinner then we went to see McFarland USA at the theater. When we were in the car, he made the comment "I hope this isn't to much of a 'feel good' movie"......well it was!!  He laughed when I leaned over and asked him if it was "feel good" enough for him!!  It was not one of the best movie experiences we've had.  There was a family with little girls behind us, one of them cried for a while before dad took her outside.  Then a group of teenagers sat up a few rows in front of us and talked entirely too much!!!  We were not impressed!!  After the movie, we weren't ready to go home so we went to Applebee's for a drink.  They have my favorite there, the strawberry perfect margarita!!!
Just playing a little couples trivia....he was so confused in the beginning, I answered the questions first then it was his turn.  He thought he was supposed to guess my answers instead of answering the questions for himself!!!  Even after he figured out he was doing it wrong he continued to do it!!  We laughed and laughed!!  It was fun!!

I got up and went to spin class, I was gonna stay for bootcamp again but the trainers were out of town.  
I went and got groceries then came home and started watching the newest season of Drop Dead Diva and proceeded to waste several hours sitting on the couch!!
I decided I should probably get up and do something so I showered and then texted my bff to see what she was up to!!  I went to her house to hang out.  We watched "The Judge" and it was good then we started watching "Fury" and I fell asleep!!!  It's not my kind of movie, even if Brad Pitt was in it!!
Ryker found a ponytail holder and wanted it in his hair....this is what he got!!  We were laughing so hard!!!
I met Michelle halfway to give her Kelsey's prom dress that I picked up.  Then I came home and started doing some spring cleaning!!!  The amount of trash that I had after I was done with only two rooms was ridiculous!!!!  I need to go on a major purging spree!!!  The amount of stuff is stupid!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I wasn't planning on doing much today until tonight, but then I realized Dillard's was still having a good sale. Take an extra 40% off already marked down prices!!  I'm going to a masquerade themed charity ball in two weeks and I still needed to find a dress.  I tried on lots and finally found one!!  Can't wait to find a mask to put with it!  I met Niki earlier at Target and got a few things there and some makeup at Sally's. It was a good shopping day!!  
I came home and changed my clothes to meet J for dinner. We went to this place called Rare and it was so good!!!  We were getting ready to order and the waitress asked us if we were celebrating anything, we said no and that we just had never been there before and wanted to try it out!  Halfway through dinner he tells me that he won at bowling today!!  He was excited!  He had been on a losing streak since before we had started dating.  (He and his team at work all bowls with a little plastic bowling set every Friday for an old trophy and then he and his boss bowl each other for a dollar....he won the dollar this week!!). After we finished dinner, they asked us if we wanted dessert,I was stuffed but he wanted something.  He decided on the salted caramel cheesecake and it was so good!!!  I'm not a big fan of cheesecake but I love me some salted caramel!  We decided we were celebrating his win at bowling today!!
We then went to see the movie "Focus" that had come out that day.  It was very good!  After that, we went and had a drink.  Some random guy was there and started talking to him, when he got up to leave he stopped and talked to both of us.  He made me feel sorry for him, J thought he was maybe not being so truthful!!  Haha!!!  
I got up and went to the gym for spin class and then stayed for bootcamp with Amanda.  I but Ed over 1000 calories!  I felt great after it was over!!  I came home then went to Niki's to hang out and help some friends move into their new house.
Ryker stole my sunglasses out of my purse!
We were craving Mexican so bad, chips and salsa and cheese and margaritas....but it was late and we were looking like bums so we decided to do out own Mexican at home!!
YUM!!!!  It was so good too!!!  I couldn't hardly stay awake past 10 so I headed on home!
I had plans of doing laundry and reading my book all day...not much more, but when Niki told me about the Pentecost church having chicken and dumplings I decided to go down there and veg out with her!!  It was the perfect day to be lazy!  We are chickens and dumplings, I read my book, watched a movie, tried to take a nap but it didn't actually happen.  We watched the Sunday night shows and then I headed home to get ready for the work week!!
