Weekend Recap #7

Woohoo for my memory this Monday morning (even though this is being posted Tuesday)!!  If only my memory was working a bit better and I wouldn't have forgotten my keys to get into work this morning....OOPS!!

Friday - 
Lazy night, but what else did you expect from me.  :)  We did manage to get the grass cut (it was well needed!) and then a little nap in by me before dinner.  I'll recap my dinner on Wednesday for What I Ate Wednesday!!  :)  So excited to FINALLY remember to be "one of those people" who take photos of their food....LOL.  The rest of the night was spent on the couch watching TV and taking Keeley on a walk.  (I'm a good puppy mommy!)

Saturday - 
Went out with my Mama and sister.  We went to Target (who doesn't love Target!), lunch at Olive Garden (YUMMO!) and grocery shopping at Dierbergs for my Mom's Birthday Dinner we were having the next night (Sunday).  We all came back to my house where we made the potato salad for Sunday (cold potato salad is sooooo good)

That night me and Andy went out with our neighbors Joe and Emily to the St Louis Brewers Heritage Festival.  There was a chance for thunderstorms and boy did they hit.  It was interesting and in fact, some of the volunteers were telling us to run for our cars in the middle of the rain and lightening storm.  Uh yeah right, I'm not running in a torrential downpour with lightening to my car.  I have a better chance of getting struck by lightening than the tent collapsing.  I will say though, we really thought the tent was going to collapse because of the weight of the water on top of it.  We moved to the outer edge of the tent.  If god forbid that tent went down, we could get out pretty quick.  The rain stopped and the beer pouring commenced and then stopped again.  Let me tell you, if you stop serving unlimited amounts of beer to people before the time was up, you're going to get some REALLY angry people and boy were there VERY ANGRY people.  I don't blame them though.  The tickets said "rain or shine".  We were told that we could receive a partial refund on their website, but as of today, I still have yet to see anything.  In all the night was fun and very interesting.  People watching is quite fun if you ask me.  (Especially if you see your husband's ex-girlfriend there......)

Sunday - 
Laundry was started that morning and completely finished by that afternoon!!  (all 4 loads of it)  It was even put away at a timely manner.  :)  The house got a fresh clean from vacuuming and bathrooms being cleaned.  The kitchen was nice and pretty too!  :)  That afternoon we headed over to my mom's house to celebrate her birthday.  It was a nice evening with good food and lots of fun.  After dinner we had a water balloon fight and swam a bit in their pool.
