I'm back for another Monday and from a weekend that didn't go as planned. Between Rory being sick and the bad weather, it threw our weekend plans off.
Friday after work, I met up with some ladies from my twin mom group. They had plans for lunch and a movie, but I could only make the lunch. We talked all about our children, being parents, got advice on our little ones and made plans to do it again. It was so much fun and only a small amount of girls could be there for this one.
After lunch, I stopped at Victoria Secret to see if they had a nude bralette like my black one I have. They didn't and I wasn't impressed with the bralette selection this year. Total bummer. If you know of any cute nude bralettes send them way so I can check them out. I also stopped in Bath and Body Works to snag some candles. They had some three wick candles on sale for $15 (normally $22.50). I got the watermelon lemonade and tiki mango. Amazing. We have already burned the mango one.
After a bit of shopping, I headed home to put a quick load into the washer and headed over to my Strange Bikini appointment. I had so much fun trying on all the samples, altering designs she had to be customized to me and picking a brand new color she just got into stock. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Best way to get a bikini by far.
After my appointment, I went home to change the laundry over and hang out before dinner. At 5 pm, I headed to dinner with my mom and sister. After a quick dinner, we went to Picasso and Wine to paint tidal waves. During our session, a lady passed out and the fire department and paramedics came in to help her. So crazy. But we had so much fun with the class. My mom and sister loved it.
Saturday morning, we got up and headed to breakfast since Rory was too sick to play in his golf tournament. He played in the work one on Friday and was feeling pretty crappy. He did go to the doctor and just had a viral infection, so it just has to work its course.
At 12 pm, I headed to my old bosses celebration of life. It was huge, amazing and beautiful. When I pass, I hope I have that many friends and family that come to celebrate my life. And I would love for it to be in a huge park with lots of food and drinks as well. The stories were the best, many laughs were had and I got to see so many of my old co-workers. Total silver lining.
I stayed longer than I planned, but headed home to meet Rory and my parents who were going to watch the girls. We were supposed to go out for drinks and a baseball game to celebrate my friend graduating nursing school, but since Rory was still sick, we had to pass. We were also invited out with my friends, but again we passed. Instead, we ran a few errands without the girls and had dinner out. A sort of day date. Dinner was phenomenal and we were able to reminisce about my old boss and how precious life is.
We got home early to relieve my parents of babysitting duty, chatted for awhile and went to bed early.
Sunday we went to breakfast again, did some grocery shopping, bought some new sunglasses (finally), visited with my in-laws, took a long walk, made dinner and did our nightly routine with the girls. We crashed out pretty early, but it was a good day.
Tonight I am looking forward to the Bachelorette and I am loading up on coffee now to make it through my day and be awake enough to watch the entire first episode. Yes, I am a total grandma and go to bed pretty early (other than Bachelorette nights).
Hope you had a great weekend!
Today I am linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.
