Weekend Recap

What a good weekend!

Friday night hubby took my son to one of our local high school football games, so my daughter and I had a special girls’ night. We went and picked out a special movie (she picked the Muppets Wizard of Oz because she’s dying to see the Wizard of Oz and I won’t let her because I think it’s way too scary for her), and then we headed to the grocery store and picked out ice cream and pop!

We settled in with our ice cream (which I made her eat right from the container like a big girl :) ) and watched the movie. The boys came home just as it was ending, so the timing couldn’t have been better!

Saturday, hubby and I headed off to the OSU vs. OU game. For those of you that don’t know, we are huge Buckeye fans. However, we also have LONG family tradition of attending OU, so we headed out dressed in our Bobcat gear and met up with a bunch of family members who also went to OU. I honestly thought they were going to get slaughtered, but they actually led the game for three quarters! I mean come on, OSU was number 3 in the nation! But the Buckeyes picked it up and ended up winning, which is good because we really are Buckeye fans and want them to do well.

After the game we headed over to a party at my uncle’s and had a great time hanging out with my cousins. The kids were a riot and had a blast playing cornhole with each other!

Sunday we went to church and then came home and took a nap! I have been so exhausted lately and I desperately needed that two hour nap :) After that I went grocery shopping and actually picked up some items for this baby that will be here in less than two weeks :) I got some diapers and diaper cream…pretty good things to have, don’t you think? I am shocked by how much prices have increased just since I had my son! A can of formula was $20 when I had my kids, and now it’s up to like $26.50! Good thing I nurse and don’t have to worry about paying that (although I do use some formula, so it will hit us a little).

After that we went to a park and had a little picnic until it was dark. We had fun, and for the first time (and probably the last now) we were able to sit at a table and watch the kids, instead of having to be right there with them as they played. Moments like that make me wonder why on earth we were crazy enough to have another one :) But don’t worry, I’m seeing all these pictures of newborns and I even got to hold one last week and I’m so very excited!

Now it’s back to work. I do have to say that I’m totally wiped out. Just getting up in the morning and getting myself to work has been such a challenge. I’m not sleeping well (which is new for me…I never have a problem sleeping) and my mind has already checked out. But I’m counting down the days. And I know the 20th will be here before I know it!

Sounds like a great weekend!! I totally want to come spend a weekend with you guys--you always seem to have so much fun doing even the simplest things :)

I can't believe this baby will be here in less than two weeks!! I know it's easy for me to say since I'm not the one carrying him/her, but it seems to have gone by so fast.

I, too, noticed how much things have increased in price for babies in the 2 1/2 years since Morgan was born. INSANE!!!

Have a great day :)

I have to ask - what is cornhole? I assume a game but I've never heard of that!

Amy W said...

Yea, I have never heard of cornhole either...

Sherry said...

I am glad Julie asked what cornhole is, cause I have no clue!!! Never ever heard of that one.
Had to laugh when you said you showed your daughter how to eat out of the container!! She is in the big league now huh?
Guys bonding over sports, girls bonding over container of ice cream, as it should be!!!!!
Sounds like you had a great weekend, like always. You all should be nominated as the "Family of the Year" cause you are!!! The fantastic quality of life that you have great and more families should do the same!!!
Are you going to work right up til the 19th/ 29th??? You need rest before the baby ya know!!!! Think of yourself girl, REST take time off!!!!
