A Milestone, A Movie, & New Shoes

I can post a weekend update because for once, we actually did something this past weekend! Don't get too excited...we have no plans for the upcoming weekend.

Friday night wasn't too exciting since David had to work a double. All multi-unit managers have to work one double a week and it is usually Friday nights. He has a few hour break in between shifts so he always comes home and takes me to an early dinner. He was in the mood for Bar-B-Que, so we headed to our favorite Bar-B-Que joint Southern Pit. My family has been eating here for as long as I can remember. For the longest time, I thought it was the only kind of Bar-B-Que there is. After dinner, I ended up getting a headache and went to bed early while he went back to work. Wild and crazy Friday nights!

Saturday morning I meet up with Aubry to have a girls day. She has been really busy with work lately, so I had not seen her in forever. I even had to leave her a facebook message asking if I was ever going to see her again? Luckily, she finally made some time for me. We started with lunch at Upscale pizza where her sister/my cousin KP works. It was KP's last day working there since she leaves for college this week. Since she'll no longer be there, I guess we'll find somewhere else to eat after movies. With her there, we always got the best service!

After lunch, we went to see the movie Julie & Julia. I loved it!!! I highly recommend you to see it. I honestly don't know what it was about it, but I just loved it. It was just a great movie. It was one of the best movies I've seen in awhile. I was a little worried about whether I would like it, because I bought the book and could not get into it. But now that I've seen the movie, I wanna try again to read the book Julie & Julia and I want to read My Life in France by Julia Child. A few of the parts that made me laugh were the ones where Julie is complaining about her blog and how no one reads it and then how excited she gets over her comments. All bloggers can relate.

Saturday night we gathered to celebrate my Meme's birthday. She has decided that she no longer celebrates birthdays, she celebrates milestones! Guess where she decided to go eat...Southern Pit! So we had round two of Bar-B-Que that night. Needless to say, I've had my fill of Bar-B-Que for awhile.

Meme & Ms. Susan

Everyone then came back to our house for cake and ice cream. Meme's best friend Ms. Susan made her a homemade chocolate cake. The thing was to die for!!! It was so good! That woman is an amazing cook! Meme was even sweet and let me keep a piece for the next day. I hid it from David so he couldn't eat it and I enjoyed every bite.

David had to work Sunday morning so I just hung out around the house. I did finally go grocery shopping. Though I didn't have much of a choice since we were out of laundry detergent and on our last roll of paper towels and toilet paper. I also got groceries for the week and I'm hoping we can get back on track on eating at home this week. We have done terrible lately.

After David got off work, we headed over to Aubry's house so David and my uncle George could go play golf. While the guys went to golf, the girls went to shop. I got these cute shoes at Target and I'm in love with them! Their on sale for $10 this week, so run to go get some. They are super comfy and they come in a few different colors/prints. I also got a bronze pair.

We then stopped at the Gap and all their clearance is 40% off this week so I picked up a few "after pregnancy" tops. I also got these little tights for OK. I cannot wait to put them on her. I'm sure though it will probably be January before it's cold enough around here.

Also, Meme's friend Ms. Susan brought me a baby gift since she could not attend the shower due to her grandson's birthday. She made OK two blankets. One for summer and one for winter. I love them since they are bigger than all the store bought blankets. Of course, it's got polka dots on it and it will always be special since it's handmade.

As for the rest of the week, we have nothing going on. David has a few late nights this week, so I won't get to see him too much. I have no other plans and you can only clean the house so many times in one week. I am trying not to go out too much because every time I do, I just end up spending money. I'm dreading tonight when David checks the online banking and sees how much I spent yesterday. So, my plans for the week are to get some rest and reading done. I am seriously now to point that I am sitting and waiting for OK now. I hope these next six weeks fly by.

Those shoes are fabulous!!! Oh my! And I’m glad to here that movie was good. I heard good things about it, but now I really want to see it. Thanks for sharing!

Mmmm, barbecue.

Those shoes are adorable! I think my legs look fat in flats like that though. Maybe I should just try them again :P

Oooo....I just bought the bronze ones today! They are so comfortable.

The Browns said...

Oh my gosh! Chick-fil-a! Okay, now I miss that place too. They have the best chicken. We don't have those either, go figure :P

I had Chick fil a this morning! ha..ha..! And I love those shoes! Thanks for the house advice....that is one of our big concerns-buying then something happening then having to move and not being able to sell...but I know all is in God's hands!

Cute shoes! I may have to interrupt my self imposed ban from Target and go check them out. I am dangerous in that store!

Melissa said...

I saw the shoes in the sales ad on Sunday and then again on your blog and just had to go get a pair! To cute! And you are right, they are comfy. I am going to have to stop at the other Target in Alpharetta to see if I cant find different patterns!
