Scott and Steve went to L.A. to deer hunt Thursday so I have been a single girl for the last 4 days. They are coming home tonight. I had a rough week at work last week and got a little over stressed and over tired so I needed rest this weekend and thankfully I got it.
Friday night - Laurie and I and the girls went to eat at the one place in town our husbands refuse to eat - Taste of Thai. We love it and they hate it so we took advantage of them being gone. They were enjoying fried chicken and fried deer steak and we enjoyed our garlic shrimp! :-)
After we ate - we took Emily to Pets Mart because she wanted to see the cats. She also wanted to see the mice and the snakes. Now I apologize to ya'll but there are 3 animals I can't stand : cats, mice and snakes. So I mostly just smiled at this little girl who kept smiling back.
I took a few pictures through the window when Emily was petting the cats. NO way was I getting in there with those cats. Not only do I not like cats - I'm scared to death of them.
Saturday morning we had Christmas choir practice and then I went to a shower for Jenna. She got all kinds of cute things for Brayden and they had the BEST cake from Rick's Bakery. It was soooo yummy and so cute with Brayden's monogram on it!
We were supposed to have a Sunday School bonfire last night but it got canceled because it was SOOOO cold and windy yesterday. I was sad not to go but a little bit happy because it meant I got to spend the rest of the day at home in my PJ's watching TV and reading magazines and working on a few little projects. I realized that this was probably the last time I will spend a weekend all alone for another 18 years. So I tried to really enjoy it! :-)
P.S. I asked Kim at "Endless Possibilities" to make me a Name canvas for Harper's room. If you have not been on her blog and looked at her amazing paintings - you are REALLY missing out!!! Well - I just happened to look over there and she is giving me a sneak peek at it! I am sooooo ecstatic because it is going to be so cute in the nursery! Can't wait to see the whole thing!!! If you look in the 2nd picture - you can even see where she is putting my giraffe print on the sides!
Hopefully tomorrow we can see the finished product!!!
