I had a good weekend! On Saturday I went to my oldest daughter's soccer game and then afterward my "sister" and I went shopping to get some new clothes for my ever expanding tummy! I finally came to the realization that I can no longer fit into my "normal" clothes and had to break down and get some maternity tops. And by the way, maternity clothes are highway robbery! Thankfully I found some great deals at one of the regular clothing stores that also carried maternity items. If you know me, then you know I refuse to pay full price for anything! I either have a coupon or it's on sale OR BOTH! No, I'm not quite as gifted as those "Extreme Couponers", but I'd like to be. ☺ Anywho, got some cute tops and some shorts (cuz it's HOT in Texas!) and then I got tired of walking and my sister said she wasn't about to push me around the mall in a wheelchair, so we left. (Well, not before I could get a a chocolate chip cookie) Mmmmm....
Guess what I did yesterday!?
I got to (finally) meet up with a fellow blogger (Charity)! I say finally, because we've been planning this for what seems like forever and some way or another, either the weather, sick kids, or anything else you can think of would change our plans! ☺ That's life, huh?
Anywho, we meet up at a park yesterday, or "the wooden park", as my youngest calls it because everything is made entirely of wood. I have to admit, I was kinda nervous at first. It was almost like a blind date, lol. As I was sitting on the bench anxiously awaiting their arrival, I got a call from Charity saying that she had gotten a little turned around, so I pointed her in the right direction and when I got off of the phone I was a little more at ease. I was thinking "thank goodness she didn't have some weird manly voice or something." I mean, really, sometimes you never know what ur gonna get when you meet someone "off the internet"! ☺ She sounded very nice, and I'll tell ya her voice wasn't misleading! When she and her daughter arrived, Charity and I hugged like we had already been friends long before! And her daughter is SUPER CUTE!! She was a little shy at first, but my girls took her over to the park and once they started playing, it was all good.
Between pushing the kids on the swings and cleaning off scraped elbows, we got to talk and learn about each other and I truly enjoyed it! And when the girls were done playing (I'm sure they planned this together), they decided that we needed to go get ice cream; so we went up the street to grab some and it was yummy! ☺ Everyone had a good time and I hope we can do it again soon!

Yep, he took all of the grass out of our front yard. Apparently at his college, Google University, they said that we had crabgrass and in order to have a lush, green yard he had to take all of it out and do some other stuff that I don't understand and then put new grass seeds down. So now it looks like this:
Bless his heart.
