This week has been a pretty good one {looking back}. We have had lots of fun and family time. 🙂

Tuesday Ana and I were supposed to go to a playdate at a park about 30 min. from us but… let’s just say she didn’t want to get up! So we went to a park closer and ran errands instead. It was still lots of fun, and I got to chat with a nice mom while we were at the park too! 🙂

Wednesday we stayed home, but Ana had some things in mind for us as soon as we got up (you’ll see in the pics). 😉

Thursday (yesterday) we went downtown! Thursdays in G’ville’s beautiful downtown is Downtown Alive! Live music and local vendors on the street! It was great :). Not many vendors yesterday, but I’m sure as the season warms up there will be more and more! We also tried (and loved) another mexican restaurant, this one downtown (of course)!

Today (Friday) my grandma Pat and papaw Larry came down! Papaw cleaned up my yard (mowed and weed-eated), while mamaw put another perm in my hair! 🙂 (It was way overdue… both things!) And finally, tomorrow my in-laws are coming back down for more food and fun! 😀

Yep it’s been a great week, and it’s looking like a great weekend!

Hope your’s is fabulous too!

Shopping, Family, and Fun! February 28, 2011

Sorry I was lazy this weekend… actually I was very busy! My hubby had a day off so we enjoyed it to the last drop!

So here is what you missed out on!

Friday Joseph took a half day! We had to go to his brother’s b-ball game that night, but on our way we made a pit stop at an outlet mall (my husbands idea!), and bought new tennis shoes! This was wildly exciting for me because I haven’t owned a good pair of tennis shoes… maybe ever! {Sorry mom, but I HATED those New Balance’s!} we both got new Nike’s! I love them!!! His and mine 🙂 We tried our hardest to get Ana a pair, but she cried and cried and SCREAMED “No. I non’t yike it, shoes!” So we gave up, and decided that maybe they were uncomfortable to her.

Friday night my brother-in-law had his very last basketball game of his high-school career… Sad. 😦 Even more sad was the fact that the referee’s were terrible and we lost… At least we got to spend a little time with the family! I love my in-laws! They’re the best! (I know, you’re jealous because yours are probably not so cool) lol!

Saturday was great! Ana and I woke up like normal human beings and ate breakfast, then the waiting began…………………………………… more waiting…………………………MORE waiting………………………………MORE WAITING………………………………….and FINALLY around 11:00 am Joseph emerges from his slumber. He does work very hard, usually 10 hours a day 5-6 days a week, so I guess it was ok. 😉 We had the best time on Saturday! We decided (or I planned) to go to the park! We started out downtown at The Falls at the Reedy Park and took the Swamp Rabbit Trail down to Cleveland Park. The weather was gorgeous! It was in the high 70’s and breezy! Heaven!!! We  took a picnic and had a late snacky lunch of hummus, veggies, pretzels and cracker chips (Yumm-a-licious)! After it was all said and done we ended up walking at least 4 miles! Woo Hoo! We were all exhausted and I did not feel like cooking so we found a great Asian place downtown! I think I went to bed around 10:00! Way early for me!

Sunday was fabulous! An amazing service Sunday morning, then lunch with my family and some friends. 🙂 Afterwards I wanted to go visit my great-grandpa and my great-grandma… This was hard for me, it was the first time going to the cemetery since my papaw passed, but I’m glad I went, I got to talk to him a little, and of course cry a lot… but it’s all part of the grieving process, I guess. We also went and visited mamaw Betty-Boop (my great-grandma). She seemed to be doing well, but I do worry about her being all alone now, mostly it makes my heart ache for her… We had a great visit and I hope to  be able to do it again really soon!

Well, enough of that sad stuff! here are some pictures from this weekend!
