Weekend Update

Vicki was at her friend's house all weekend, so we had a chance to go out, and not worry about getting a sitter!
Friday night was nothing special, just appetizers and a few drinks at Dillon's. Saturday morning's weather was perfect for a ride on the bike to get breakfast. We did some errands, stopped at a few yard sales, and did some things around the house.
Saturday night, however, was not so low-key. We made plans with my friend V, and headed up to New River, to the Roadrunner Saloon. It's a great little restaurant/bar and they have an outdoor bar, too. The band playing was Dok & Gal. They play a lot of the local venues, and they're great.
It was a long ride up there (32 miles) but not too bad. Although it was very cold on the way home at 2:30 a.m.! V got there before us, and grabbed a table under the heat lamps (wooo-hoooo!) .
Some highlights:
  • Sitting next to Petey the Serial Killer (who works for the government and when asked, "Where do you live?" answers: "In the desert.")
  • Dancing with Big D
  • Dancing with V
  • Leaving a drunk voicemail for V's friend that no-showed

Some lowlights:

  • Blonde chick in the blue shirt - dancing a little too close for comfort!
  • Fight on the dance floor (NO-I wasn't involved!)
  • Losing my voice on Sunday (and it's still not back today!)

All in all, I'd have to say that Saturday was a great night. Except for the crappy service at the bar. I got to dance with my hubby, and he even stopped on the way home so I could hit the restroom at the QT...otherwise, it would have been ugly!

Sunday was yard work day, and Big D fixed our gate. So I mowed the lawn (front & back yards), whacked all the weeds, and trimmed the hedges. My sneakers are now green and I don't think they will ever be the same again.

Petey-the-serial-killer: he wouldn't let us get a picture of his face...but he had this FANTASTIC glass eye that was too big, and looked off to the right. He was CREEPY!!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Petey the Serial Killer who lives in the desert... now that was funny! Drunk blonde chick in blue spanking my ass on the dancefloor and then ditching her drunk friend, yeah, not so funny! It was a fun nite overall though and I'm so glad to hear that Big Daddy stopped at a restroom for you!

sounds like FUN! My Sunday, sadly, was much like yours... outside pulling weeds before the tornado storm came through. Wonder if it would've taken care of those weeds for me?

Mike said...

And not a single fire extinguisher? Couldn't have been a success then.

Big Daddy said...

Hey there you sexy girl!!!!

Paula said...

Sounds like a great time! I live for the days when I won't need a sitter and can go out just whenever! Lucky girl!

Kim Thomas said...

Yeah, lets party with the serial killer. LOL

Shannon said...

Wow no sitter...that is not in my vocab yet. I WISH it was, but at the same time it's so much fun having him this age...I'm gonna google petey the serial killer

Shannon said...

LMFAO...your blog is the first thing listed when you google it!

Jinjer said...

Sounds like a great weekend to me. I think you should go back next weekend and tell the serial killer about the blog and HCBC...he would probably become a fan! LOL

Ann said...

Jinjer: good point...we did tell him he was going to be featured on my blog...I'm not sure if we told him about the serial-killer tag though! :o) We could have!
