So, anyway, last week was a whirlwind. I have recently organized a Book Club that is actually a wine happy hour club. Reading the book is not a prerequisite to attending. It's just a pretense for me to see all my girlfriends every other month. Of course, I had to make the first meeting awesome so that I could guarantee that people would come again. It would be sad if everyone came to the first one, left disappointed, and I never saw them again. Luckily, I think it worked out pretty well and everyone had a good time. We went through 5 or 6 bottles of wine, so that's a good sign right?
The ultimate compliment was when someone asked me if I saw this on Pintrest!
To top that off, we had three soccer practices, girl scouts, boy scouts, Chuck out of town on business for a couple days, Shot in the Dark final preparations (it's this Friday), and Evie's birthday and birthday party, and Sunday School (which I'm shockingly teaching this year until the Heavens strike me down). Plus there was a wedding that I decided to skip because it was Evie's birthday, and a Saturday night visitor who I babysat for while my friends went to said wedding.
The only relief was that the soccer game scheduled for Saturday got cancelled because of rain. I was in charge of snacks too, so now I have a cooler full of Gatorade and a bag full of snacks that will have wait to be distributed at the makeup game. Boo.
Despite the craziness of the week, I think Evie had a lovely birthday. I treated her to whatever she wanted Saturday: lunch at Joe T's, double ice cream cone, the movie Super Buddies (a huge sacrifice on my part because I hate the "buddies" movies), a big pot of macaroni and cheese for dinner, and a visit to the park.
She got to open presents from Luke & George on her actual birthday. Each brother got hugs!
Then the birthday party was at a trampoline park called Flight Deck. We only had 12 kids attend (praise the Lord), and the place was awesome! All I had to do was bring the cake and the party favors and they did the rest. Amazing! Well worth the money. The kids had fun jumping for an hour and then they had pizza, cake, and party favors. It was perfect!
|Chuck and I are proud of her t-shirt choice from her summer camp. It makes us look so religious. Bahaha!|
|Here's the cake she picked out. The purple thing is a flower that is supposed to open up and revewal Tinkerbell inside. Um, we couldnt' figure out how to open it until after the party, so it looks like a big purple ball on her cake.|
After the party and after baths, Evie got to open her presents. Here's just one shot of her with a present (and with her dad and brother).
So there you go. That's my update. Seems rather boring, right? I promise you guys aren't missing much. My days consist generally of homework, laundry, cooking dinner and lunches, and driving from one place to another. I had no idea how easily all this would fill my days.
