Friday after worked I treated myself to a pedicure and it felt soooo good. I now have teal sparkly toes and the softest feet. After my pedi, I headed to Target for Valentine's. Nothing like last minute. I picked up a bunch of other stuff along the way. Then I had to go to Costco for wine, diapers and wipes. I made it home just in time to feed the girls dinner and then we headed out for the evening. My parents came up to watch the girls and they played all evening.
Rory and I headed to our favorite pizza place (Italian style thin crust pizzas) and then to a beer bar to meet up with co-workers and his softball team. I had two beers. One was from Toolbox Brewing (Bog Sauce - sour with raspberry and cranberry) and a local beer that was on nitro. So good.
After having beers, we stopped at the Baked Bear on the way home for ice cream sandwiches. I had a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie with coffee ice cream. It was the perfect combo.
We got home and relieved my parents of babysitting duty and went to bed right after since we were going snowboarding in the morning!
We got up bright and early and got the girls ready for the day. Then we headed off to the mountain. Mt. Rose had been closed all week except Friday due to high winds, so we were in for a treat of fresh powder. Especially on one side that didn't open the previous day. But that meant massive crowds. We were at least 30 chairs deep in line, but I went on a black diamond run that had barely been touched and had fresh lines the entire way down!

I took it very easy that day since surgery had only been 5 weeks prior. I got in 9 runs in 2 1/2 hours which is pretty good with how busy it was there. The visibility was getting worse and worse, so we left around 11:30.
Notice the change in visibility within 2 hours
We grabbed some In N Out on the way home and got home in time to shower and relax a bit before the girls got up.
We took the girls on a walk since it was mostly sunny and in the 50s. We did our usual evening routine and then I headed out to dinner with my friend. We went to sushi and it was packed. It was almost a 40 minute wait. Ugh. And I was starving. But we got our sushi fill and then went to a local bar where my friend sang karaoke. I just watched and went home at 10 pm because I was exhausted from the day.
Sunday morning the girls didn't let us sleep in much which was a bummer because I was sore and tired from the day before. But we went to breakfast and had the most delicious apple cinnamon french toast. After breakfast, I headed out to go grocery shopping. I stopped and got lattes on the way home and then I dusted and vacuumed while the ate lunch.
Soon after, we put the girls down for a nap and I sat down to work on their Valentine's for their party on Tuesday. I had to address the cards and put together Frozen 3D puzzles (not fun) and then added a piece of candy to each card. I also put together cards and a little gift for their three teachers.
After nap, we caught part of the Nevada basketball game and then headed out to a local museum that had a Toy-apuluza event. They had the giant piano like the one in the movie Big, giant light brite, a life size doll house, old arcade games, lincoln logs, puzzles, Monopoly game boards, Mr. Potato Heads, trains, Lego's and so much more. Another twin mom told me about it and since the girls were free, we thought why not. The girls had a blast and so did mommy and daddy. We got to play with a bunch of old games and see how kids do the same.
The girls LOVED the piano!
They let me put ponytails in their hair
We also went through the Wilbur D. May exhibit with is local and we were able to catch the girls in a brief moment of stillness
After the museum, we walked around outside since it was 55 degrees and let the girls burn off more energy. Once we got home, we took Walter for a walk and the girls rode in the wagon. It got cold fast as the sun was going down, so we booked it home to make dinner for the girls and start their evening routine. I also started dinner for Rory and I, spaghetti.
We gave the girls their baths, did laundry and got everything ready for the week ahead. Once the girls were down, we started Parenthood and had dinner with a glass of wine. It was the perfect way to cap off an amazing weekend!
How was your weekend?
