Best Weekend In A Long Time

Ladies, I just had one of the most fun weekends I’ve had in a long time!

Friday night we just went shopping for birthday presents for the weekend, rented “Son of God” from Redbox, grabbed Culver’s for dinner and went home and relaxed.

Saturday was a hectic but great day!  J left super early to go hunting (first day of bow season here in WI).  I slept in until 9 am, got up, had my coffee and went shopping for an outfit for dinner that night.  I ended up with more than one and spent too much but it was just so nice to be out shopping for clothes and to get some nicer pieces that actually fit…all of my other dresses are too small with the weight I’ve gained (totally my fault…I’m not a lover of veggies and I’m an emotional eater).   From there, I rushed home to get showered.  We headed to a 5 year olds birthday party.  She is the daughter of one of J’s best friends from HS and this is one of the few times of year we know we will get together with them (the other is for the Super Bowl).  His wife always has the fixings for walking tacos and it’s just always a fun time catching up with people.  In fact, we were so busy talking to people that we left half an hour later than planned which put us in a rush to make our next event.

We headed back home to change and get ready for a fun night out with family and friends.  J’s cousin (who is more like a brother and was his Best Man) turned 37 on Sunday so his wife through him a surprise party knowing he wouldn’t expect it for his 37th birthday.  A few people from the family and some of J and his cousin’s good friends from college all met up at the great restaurant and surprised the heck out of him when they walked in.  It was an amazing night of food, drinks, conversation, darts and pool.  It was just what J and I have needed after all the craziness of IF.  In fact, J stayed sober all night so that I could drink (at some point, I may find the courage to share our story).  Here’s a few pics from the night:

The woman in the pic with me by the fountain is J’s Cousin’s wife…this girl is like a Sister to me.  In fact, she’s more of a Sister to me than my SIL.  She is always supportive of what’s going on and encouraging.  She never pretends to know what we are going through but always lends an ear to listen and gives a shoulder for me to cry on.  Love her so much!

After  getting home late and giving the pup a bit of attention…we headed to bed and had a little spontaneous, non baby making fun (well, I guess we were technically in that window but it’s not what we were thinking about for once).

Sunday was filled with getting stuff done around the house and watching a Packer game I was sure we were going to lose the way it started but ended up winning!  Thank you Lord for an amazing weekend with wonderful people AND a Packer Win!!!
