We went to a Fall Fest and walked around for four freakin' hours. There were so many vendors and I still don't think we hit everything.
I picked up this coal bucket and some hydrangea and filler...
I added the last of the eucalyptus I had to it. I like the way it looks. Then I began quoting Patrick Stewart's version of A Christmas Carol (the best in our opinion) and kept prattling on about buying another coal scuttle and to make up the fiy-ah before you dot another I...Bob Cratchit.
We just walked until my hip sockets threatened to go on strike. The Mr was walking funny as well so it behooved us to throw in the towel. We drove to a mall area and had lunch...
That would be buttermilk chicken strips, gouda mac and cheese and a little salad. Twas quite good. Then I got a birthday coupon for a local store so we grabbed a few shirts and then got on the road so we could be home in time for our friends to come over.
I wasn't cooking this time, we said it was a surprise so we took her out to dinner at one of her favorite restaurants since they kept putting it off. That's the thing about restaurants, you can't put off going too long because the day you finally decide to go is the day you find out they closed. Afterward we went to Black Out Mini Golf.
I think they had fun.
I kind of made it a double birthday gathering since we both turned 40 this year. I introduced her to Biscoff spread earlier in the year and now she loves it. One of the things I promised her for her birthday was a pint of my cookie butter ice cream. Friday I had to make it so it would be fresh and then I got the bright idea to make her Biscoff cookies. You know, for potential ice cream sandwiches. So sadly the Mr was cleaning far later Friday night in the kitchen than he cared to. Sorry Mr! But they seemed to be appreciated so, there's that! In addition to some money, they got me scratch and sniff stickers!
Sunday was just complete and utter chill day. I mean from exercise too. Since we burned so much walking the day before and we were so tired the next day, we decided to flip flop rest days. I hope it doesn't screw me this week but honestly, I was grateful for the suggestion. Unfortunately I had a headache for a good part of the day. I need a vacation.
We have our last birthday gathering on Wednesday when a friend of mine's schedule allows. I haven't seen her in a while and she's the sweetest so I'm glad to entertain even if it means an early workout during the day. I'm making chili. It's something we can still fit into the calories just fine and I need to think of a little dessert to throw in there.
I'm ready for the new week. Last week sucked, I have people trying to steal my sunshine for their own oversights but I shant let them get to me...this week will rock. Why? Because it's SLEEPY HOLLOW NIGHT!!! I've been waiting for this for 9 months!
What did you guys do this weekend? Any premieres you're excited for?
