Weekend Recap!

I didn’t do too much this weekend.  The one thing I really had myself psyched up to do was to paint a bedroom, but, uh, that didn’t actually happen.  Surprise!  Maybe over Thanksgiving weekend?  We’ll see.

Friday I took the day off work to go to a meeting about a potential new job opportunity that has been in the works for a little while.  I was interested, but not sure I wanted to go for it, so I went to this meeting to see what they had to say about it.  And, I LOVED it!  So, now begins a fairly involved process and a lot of work on my end, but I’m really excited about the potential this has to offer!  No details for now, but I’ll let y’all in if/when the time comes.  It’s far from a done deal at this point. J

Friday night Lee came home from a long week away for work and we were very happy to have him back!  Aside from the obvious reasons of it being good to have your husband back, I was really excited to get a good night’s sleep.  I slept horribly the nights that he was away.  You know, because I’m scared.  Of ghosts.  I know, it’s stupid.  Whatever.  Cooper was so excited he was home, that he slept in until SIX FORTY FIVE Saturday morning!!  That’s over 2 hours later than normal!  It was awesome.

Saturday morning, Jackie and I went to a giant craft fair, Affair of the Heart.  I love things like that so I was so happy that she also wanted to go.  We wanted to get there early to beat the crowd, and it’s a good thing we did.  We arrived 30 minutes after it started and it was so nice to leisurely walk around and get to see everything we wanted with no pushing or shoving.  And then about 45 minutes after we arrived, we realized what a MAD HOUSE the place had become.  We were determined to see everything so we pushed our way through (sometimes, quite literally, pushed!).  I left with one thing; a Christmas gift for my mom.  And it’s a good thing that I don’t have, or know anyone that has, a little girl.  OMGeee.  The girl clothes they had were A-freaking-dorable!  The Christmas outfits alone were incredible.  Of course, a MINIMAL amount of boy items were available.  And the ones that were, well, uh, I could have made them.  Except for this cute turkey shirt that Cooper NEEDED, but was only available in 18 months, and clearly, that would not work.  The lady working that booth did not appreciate me asking if she had any other sizes.  Probably because, while in her booth, she heard me say the following:

“These socks are really cute, I’d buy them if they weren’t $6”, and, while holding up a Christmas t-shirt and realizing that it was a college football team that my husband would not approve of “OH, this says OSU, we CAN’T get that”, and “ohh look at this cute guitar bib!  Wow, not for $10.50 thought!”. 

Haha, sorry but I thought things were a little pricey at her booth!  She didn’t like me.  That’s okay. J

So after about 3 hours there, we left and I took a nap.  Then Lee went over to a friend’s house for the evening to watch the OU game and I stayed home and did laundry and caught up on DVR shows.  And got annoyed when I realized that Lee took all the beer with him.

On Sunday, Jenny ran her first marathon!!!!  Yayyy!!!  So we all went out to support her.  We made fun signs too, but I don’t have a picture.  I bet that Jackie will when she posts about it.  So we went out to cheer for her at the 6 mile mark, the 19ish mile mark, and at the finish!  It was really so much fun to see not only her (obviously), but also all of the other runners.  I got a little teary eyed several times, mostly at the 19ish mile mark when we saw her and then again at the finish when we were waiting for her to run over the hill.  It really was a great experience, from a spectator standpoint, so I can’t even imagine the emotions of the runners.  So proud of you Jenny!

After the race, I picked up Cooper and we went to Target and the grocery store.  He likes shopping J And, while at the grocery store, someone, YET AGAIN, made the comment “he sure doesn’t miss a meal”, and I’d had enough.  You people who have kids, do people say this to you all.the.time?  They do to us and I get so annoyed.  I mean, no, he does NOT miss a meal, but it’s not like he’s some giant baby.  And if he was, that would be fine, but he’s not.  People just don’t know what else to say, so they say THAT and it really annoys me.  So I said “actually he is pretty average size”.  Take that, grocery store employee.

That’s about all we did this weekend.  I’m hoping to be super productive around the house next weekend, since I will have a 5-day one!  I’m only working today and tomorrow, and I’m off next Monday J

Chubby babies are the best! Leighton received the same type of back-handed compliments, usually from old people (let's blame their bad eye sight). We were also told she was a really cute "little guy." Eh, what can you do?

I cant wait for my 4 day weekend! I bet I will get out early Wed. too.
Um, I thought breast fed babies were suppoed to be bigger, and that meant healthy? I LOVE LOVE LOVE to see a nice healthy chubby baby..and I use the word chubby in a good way.
I have watched so many friends run marathons-it is so fun to watch and you would think it would motivate me, but it doesnt! :)

The "giant baby" comment made me laugh out loud literally.. haha! I would never think Cooper is even "chubby." I mean.. he's a normal-sized baby and very cute! Sheesh! My mom said people often called me a "chunk" when I was a baby. If someone called my child a chunk, I'd hit them.

aghhh thank you so much for coming on Sunday! You guys kept making me cry! I can't imagine not having you girls there. I am so lucky to have friends like you.

people are ridiculous. some would say Nate was HUGE and others "oh he's a skinny one"... it drove me crazy at the time but now I kind of just think PEOPLE LOVE BABIES and they just need an excuse to talk to you about your adorable child. I mean, really, who wouldn't want to pinch C's cheeks - chunky or not!
