The Weekend In Review

After a very stressful week of looking for a job, I really needed to get out of the house. It's a sad state of affairs when you're excited to go see the chiropractor because it means you're getting out of the house! I am not meant to be a SAHM, and I give a lot of credit to those who do it! I called my Mom this week and asked her how she did it...she was a SAHM for 17 years, she stayed at home for me and my sisters. I still don't know how she did it!

On Friday night, we went to see "Wanted" at the movies with friends Aaron & Vikky. Here's my review: not great. It didn't suck, either. I guess it's been a while since we've gone to the theater to see a movie. They charged $3.50 for a bottle of water. It's a good thing we had free passes to the movie, or we couldn't have bought a damned drink! So here's a picture of $10.50:

I love how I'm looking at something random and Big D is looking right at the camera! This is what happens when you attempt a self-portrait!

On Saturday, we went to Hurricane Bay with Shannon & Mike to celebrate their 7th wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary you two! I'm so glad I took pictures, otherwise I would have to rely on Big D to tell me what happened! :) Here are some pics:

I was so shocked to see a Bud Light Lime with a lime in it! Why do they put a lime in it if it's Bud Light Lime??? I guess this picture could also be titled: She's got the Bud Light.

We were also celebrating Aleshia and her husband John's birthdays. John is getting some special treatment from Nunzee, one of the guys who works at the Bay. Aleshia was getting into it!

John needed a smoke after that! :)

These next few pics were especially taken for Joker:

I think I actually had everyone saying "Hi Joker" in this one, but I can't be sure.

This was close to the end of the night, and I'm not sure if we were singing or saying something, but we look pretty happy, don't we?

I should also tell you that we got caught in the rain on the way home, and I was saying that it really didn't hurt that bad this time, and Big D said, "Of course it didn't hurt YOU, you were pretty drunk, and I was blocking most of it for you!" LOL! We did get soaked, though.

Last night, we took Vicki to Westgate City Center to get an ice cream and walk around, look at the fountains, etc. We waited in line at Cold Stone Creamery for a 1/2 hour before getting waited on! I couldn't believe how many people were there! Vicki took some pics of the dancing fountains. They time the fountains to music, and if I had been using my very hungover brain, I would have taken a video of it, because it was really cool. Next time!

Great pics. Sounds like a good weekend, all but getting caught in the rain.

$10.50 fot 3 bottles of water?.

That's more than gas!. So sad.

Sorry, but I gotta be pretty thirsty before I pay for water. I can just about get a rum & Coke for that!

And yes, you ladies do look pretty happy. (But that's how it should be by the end of the night!) Love all the birds flying!

Love the pictures! Sounds like you had a good weekend, you deserve it!

Glad you got out to do something. If you don't unplug from the grind your armatures burn up. I cant be a SAHM either. Heh. Bec doesn't even like the way I make mac and cheese! (How do you screw that up? All I know is somehow, I possess that gift.)

Looks like a good time. Seeing other people having a great time is going to kickstart my own week off on the right road. Thanks!!

Lady Ridesalot said...

Yep! I'd say it was a good weekend too. And yes, you gurlz look happy! Awesome job with the double eagles ladies! I've got a surprise lined up for Joker, but he will have to wait until next week to find out what it is. Ya'll stay tuned.

i was ambivalent about "wanted" too. i gave it a solid "meh"

Jinjer said...

Looks like a super fun weekend! I love the flippage pics - I have always been a fan of the bird as I tend to hand it out often :) Gonna wait for Wanted to come out on dvd. Don't like movies - too many people invading my personal space and the $3.50 per water doesn't help any.

Jenn Ann said...

$3.50 for a bottle of water?! How much was a soda?

Kim Thomas said...

Wow! Looks like you made the most of getting out of the house!

"Joker" said...

Ann honey that was just too cool! Thanks! How many other men do you know who so appreciate being flipped off by a room full of women? I just wish I could've been there to hear how you explained it to all the girls. However you did it, they seemed to be all for it! Wait until I tell Tina down at the Boneyard the trend her and I have started...it's spreading across the country!

Lady R...I can't wait hun! I know if you're up to it, I won't be disappointed!
