This weekend we were supposed to go to Fredericksburg, but we didn't. We decided to stay home and you know what? It was really nice. Our weekends have been go-go-go and we thought a staycation was just what we needed. That, and we need to save money.
We rented movies, went to H-E-B and bought three bottles of wine, and had our own little wine tasting at home. We made lunch and layed in our backyard and enjoyed ourselves a sweet little picnic. We put crown molding up in our kitchen. We slept in. We visited my brother and sister-in-law and had steaks. I spray painted some frames. We made four trips to Home Depot & Lowes. We just did things around the house and ran some errands. It was busy, and not really THAT relaxing, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. It doesn't matter what I'm doing with my husband, it's always fun.
I didn't take any pictures this weekend (I know, shocker). My hubby wanted my full attention, and said, "NO pictures this weekend, promise? Just me and you." So, I obeyed his wishes. :) I know, that makes for no fun on here huh? Haha, but I assure you, the picnic was precious, and our little wine tasting was so much fun.
My husband and I had some funny moments this weekend too. They probably aren't funny to y'all, but I thought I'd share anyway.
Me: I'm so hungry.
Him: Me too.
Me: What do you want to eat?
Him: I don't know...what do you want to eat?
Me: ...Babe, we really have to stop having this conversation.
Him: For the love of Peter, let's just decide on something.
Me: Who is Peter?
Him: I don't know, I thought I'd just throw that in there.
Me: Er, ok?
(10 minutes go by.)
Me: I'm hungry babe.
Him: Me too.
Me: ....What do you...(he interupts me)
Him: Top Ramen.
Me: Are you serious?
...And this went on for another hour before we decided on Chick-fil-A. Haha.
(We were driving at night, with the windows down)
Him: You smell that pollen?
Me: THAT'S pollen!?
Him: Yeah, smells like mashed potatoes and gravy.
Me: What? (Insert weird confused face and burst of laughter from both of us) That's the best smelling pollen I've ever smelled.
Him: Babe, I don't know if I should tell you this or not, BUT the neighbor just told me something.
Him: Well, supposedly a person on our street had a small dog, and left it outside for awhile...and when they went outside and called their dog, it was gone.
Him: Well, a hawk or an owl ate it.
Him: Yeah, they looked everywhere, and then all of the sudden, a huge hawk was sitting on the fence.
Me: So, how do they know for sure the dog got taken away and eaten by the hawk?
Him: ...I don't know, but he told me the dog was blind and deaf.
Me: Well, my dogs aren't either of those... (the dogs are sitting right beside me with their heads tilted sideways like they were attentive and really understanding the conversation, no joke.)
Him: No babe, hawks and owls can pick up rabbits.
Like I said, you probably won't think any of these conversations are funny. I will just add them to the "You had to have been there" category.
Anyway, it was a really nice weekend. We are going out to dinner tomorrow night and to the movies (with our giftcard from my super sweet in-laws and a free movie pass from Andrew's employee)...We like free :) Our wallets do too! :)
Random thoughts: This weekend we came to conclusion that we will be getting hard wood floors (laminate most likely) before we get a new couch. I wish I could have both... :( If only haha.
I also booked a wedding for January. I'm pretty stoked about that.
I also need to finish my wedding posts, so without further ado...
OUR RECEPTION IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enter the "hallelujah" music! Haha.
Our reception was a blast. I had so much fun, and our guests did too.
We started it off with introducing everyone as if we were an NBA basketball team, with the whole "All-Stars" music playing in the background. Our DJ was bad-A and introduced everyone just like they do at a professional NBA game. It was hilarious too because we added little tid-bits and embarrassing moments on the end of each intro. The crowd loved it.
For example, "Coming in at 6 foot, we have Jeremy, college friend of the groom. Jeremy is single ladies, he loves bambi, long walks on the beach...and likes to cuddle afterwards." It was something like that :)
We watched a wedding video of our childhood, our relationship, and some funny videos of us singing in the car. I will have to find those so I can show y'all someday. They are rather embarassing, though.
We ate our cake, and all that good stuff too. And yes, I do REALIZE that there is a hideous
We had our toasts...
And we had our first dance.
Getting a little boring? Well, we have a surprise foooor you. :)
We got downnnnnnnnn with our badselves. Look for the video at the end of the post. You don't want to miss it! :)
Then we handed out the shades...& it got CRAZY and FUN! :)
I have no idea what I am doing in the picture below...Haha. Glow Sticks make me act a fool.
I wish I had the time to show you all of the pictures from this night, but I think these sum it up best. :) It is a night I will never forget.
& there we went...off to our Greek Honeymoon that I will be posting about soon.
Are you still thinking about that first dance? Well, before I put this on here for you to see. Keep in mind my husband DID NOT want to do this dance. After much convincing, he did it. And we only ran through it the night before in a very small, two stall bathroom. I do not claim to know how to "get down" as I'm usually a very conservative dancer, so no judging allowed! :) It's not AWESOME by any means...but it was fun. I'm glad we did it...FLAWS and all.
Happy Two Year Anniversary sweetie! (I know you are reading this and I'm sorry I posted THE DANCE! ;)) You are my world!
I love you, forever & always.
