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. :)


  1. How in the heck am I just now seeing this post?! Dear LORD, I'm out-of-it these days. :) Cool tats!!! Maybe someday my kids and I will actually be healthy at the same time, and I'll get to see you again. :(
