Happy President’s Day!  Are you off today?  My kids are, but we have Parent Teacher Conferences so I’m working from 7:30-2:30.  I am having trouble with my link ups lately, so I don’t know if I will be able to link up.  I was doing just fine with Inlinkz and now I’m not.  If you are a blogger and have a suggestion, it would be most appreciated!  I’m also having trouble leaving comments on some blogs.  

How was your weekend?  Mine went by in a flash.  I was off Friday but had a hard time motivating myself to do anything other than go to my hair appointment.  You don’t know how badly you needed it done until you see your new fresh do!  

Friday night was my son’s play (they ran it 6 times over the course of two weeks) and my husband was finally going to see it.  I put on the outfit below and dropped my son off an hour before the show.  

Then I met my husband at the Italian restaurant Ciao a block away.  

We had a nice little dinner and then watched our son’s 10 minutes of fame and I left and he stayed until the play was over. 

Saturday morning had me up bright and early to get my other son to an academic competition.  He was taking a test for language arts and had to be at a school about 20 minutes away by 8 a.m. I found out Saturday night that he made it to state!  That means he will be taking another language arts test next month!

I killed time by going to a nearby Panera for a latte.  

It was chilly but the sun was out!  

I did my nails while doing laundry and watching the Food Network.  

I popped into Old Navy and picked up this gold necklace to wear with my silver so I can wear both metals at once.  I figured if I liked them well enough together I might invest more money in a nicer one later on down the road.  

Then, we had to get theater son to his last performance and other son to a movie with a friend so we went to lunch at Hopcat while they were involved with their things.  We did not go to all 6 performances because it was $15 per person per time and because it sold out most of the time!  

I tried a petite sour rose beer and really liked it.  

Look at the cool ceiling decor!

We split a sloppy joe and onion rings and I’m so glad we split!  And, hub loves street corn so he had that, too.  

We picked everyone up by 4 and just hung out at home and I made dinner for the boys but we were too stuffed to eat again.  Theater son was feeling really sick and went to bed very early.  He has been fighting whatever my husband had last weekend and I started to feel like I was going to get it, too.  So, I had an early night as well after falling asleep on the couch at 8.  I tell you, when I’m in the school year, I just can’t stay up very late.  

Sunday was lazy and uneventful.  We finally had nothing on the calendar.  I did my breakfast prep for the week and made chocolate chip cookies.  I read and watched t.v., did more laundry, and that’s about it.  

We did take an afternoon drive to see the river flooding we’ve been having lately starting to recede.  

How was your weekend?  Or, are you still having it right now?  Are you still managing to survive winter?  I’m seeing signs of spring and it makes me think winter will not last forever!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Looks like another busy weekend! My dad passed yesterday, it was a tough weekend and as you well know, we are just devastated. I feel like I’m going through the motions of my every day life just to keep myself from falling apart completely. One day at a time.


    1. Oh I’m so sorry! Even though you knew it was coming it does not make it any easier. If you need to talk I’m here. You will just be going through the motions for awhile. You will be in my thoughts and prayers!


  2. Our sky looks like a Spring sky but it was -26C upon waking SO I’m still mad, ha ha. But you are right, it is coming! The changes are afoot.
    I’m glad I’m not the only one who falls asleep so early 🙂
