Fun and Surprises

On Friday, Elijah and I had planned to hang out with a couple of friends, but since that was a bust, we decided to sleep in and hang out in our PJ's all day! :D  We read about 15 books, we made a little reindeer craft and Eli showed me some REAL appreciation for marshmallows.  He loves them! 
On Friday night, I had a MNO and we had a total blast!  We started the night off at Hobby Lobby, where Breanna bought WAY too much stuff, but somehow made it look completely stellar when she got home and decorated her mantle. 
Then we went to eat at Gaucho's and it was so yummy! It was just what I needed and despite an over zealous flirty meat server, we had a great time and I am surprised we didn't get kicked out for laughing too loud! :D  haha!  When we were leaving Gaucho's, I over estimated the opening of Renee's car door and totally slammed my knee straight into the side of the car!  It hurt:

On Saturday, we met David's family for breakfast at Mimi's as they were passing through on their way home from Arkadelphia.  It was so nice to see them and Eli was super excited to see Mammy ("Mam") and devastated to watch her leave. :(
Then we headed to a baby shower in Maumelle where I got to see a few friends that I don't get to see near as often as I would like, before heading to a birthday party at 1pm for a friend's little boy. :D  We had a super busy day, so we decided to get a babysitter for Saturday night and enjoy some alone time.
We went straight to 7th street because we have both been antsy to get a new tattoo!  Jud hooked us up with some new art...he's amazing!
Mine is a play off of a Roman coin.  On The Ides of March (March 15th, which is my birthday), Brutus killed Julius Caesar and freed the Romans.  He later released a coin to commemorate this day.  Here is what I came up with, with Jud's artistic help:

I love me some Jud! :D

My husband got his family crest with a little artistic help as well.  It looks amazing!  Here is a picture of it:


Looks great, right? :D

Sunday, we ate some yummy lunch at Chipotle and went grocery shopping with three kiddos, which is always fun! ;)  While we were at Kroger, we grabbed a couple of Red Box movies (one for the kids and one for us) and we enjoyed a night in. 

This weekend was full of fun and surprises and we had a blast, as always! :D  Stayed tuned for more fun. :)

Dentists, Dings and Date Nights!

Yesterday, I had a dental cleaning and I absolutely LOVE to have my teeth cleaned. Some people have irrational fears of dentists (David), but I absolutely love them.  They make your teeth feel all clean and sparkly. :D  Dentists are wonderful!
Does anyone else appreciate a good dental cleaning? :D

Today, I headed to Land Rover to hear the bad news.  The damage is $2,300!!  We WILL be turning it into insurance, so what did my experience cost me?  Backing out of the garage cost me $500.  :( 
Stinky, right?  Well...lesson learned.  This one cost me more than the average lesson, but I won't be backing out of the garage any time soon.  How's that for irrational fears? ;) 

I am back on track with my healthy eating and this is day 4 of eating healthy.  I am dying for all things unhealthy, but I am getting stronger every day.  :)  There will be a minor setback tomorrow night.  A few friends are getting together for a MNO and we are eating at Gaucho's!  If you haven't tried it, you should! It's a Brazilian steakhouse and it's amazing!  I can't wait!  :)  I'll update soon, hopefully with some great pics of me with some gal pals. ;)
