Me and You… Just Us Two


August 2, 2010

This weekend, it was all about spending time with just me and the boy…since this rarely happens, we wanted to take advantage of a relaxed weekend at home and get a lot of to-dos checked off our list–Friday night, we had planned a hot date downtown, however, since we were both exhausted from the work week, we decided for a laid back dinner at Jackson’s in Hillsboro Village–and since we ate later, we were able to sit outside and people watch… so fun!
Afterwards, we let our wild side out and went to Home Depot, Pier 1, and Sweet Cece’s for yogurt–yes, we’re wild and crazy I know.
Saturday morning, I got up early and ventured out to Cool Springs to get some much-needed birthday shopping accomplished. I was able to get everything I needed, so I spent some time shopping for ME…and by that, no I don’t mean for the house, I mean for ME! It was so enjoyable to be able to shop at a slow pace for once and not be rushing around… after 4 hours, I walked out with a new pairs of shoes, 2 new dresses, 2 new shirts, a new purse, and a scarf for fall–yay!! That night, we met my family at Bricktops to celebrate my cousin’s 21st birthday!! We had so much fun toasting her adulthood and wishing them well for their Vegas trip…
Sunday morning, we were up to knock out a few more house chores…we painted my white wicker furniture because it will be used in one of our guest bedrooms, picked out new bedding, finally chose the paint colors for the 2 guest rooms, and office, and then hauled off an entire carload of more unnecessary “stuff” to Goodwill–love that feeling to get everything we don’t need O U T! Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL WEEKEND…
But now on to more important things–who is ready for the “Ali Finale” tonight??? Me and my girls are having a mexican fiesta tonight so we can all pretend like we don’t know whats going to happen and who Ali is going to pick? or not pick? All I know is I can’t wait to find out and see those highly anticipated previews for Bachelor Pad-score!!
