weekend recap

I had another very strange dream last night, but let's not talk about that, ok?

Let's talk about the weekend.

Friday afternoon I got a text from Joey telling me we needed to record the 5 o'clock, 6 o'clock, and 9 o'clock news because he was going to be on TV.

What?? What happened??

No response. I guess he can't text while arresting people.

So I went online and set the DVR to record. When I got home Friday evening, I turned on the 5 o'clock recording and there he was! My husband, less than one week on the job, being interviewed on the news. I was so proud of him! Before I even got home I had people texting and emailing me that they had seen him on the news. It was kind of fun, I'm not gonna lie.

It was nothing major (thank goodness!), just people driving around low water crossings. But either way, it was my hubby on TV! How fun!

Later that evening Joey took Taylor to see Iron Man 2 and Ashton and I had a little dinner date.

Saturday, Taylor's soccer game was canceled due to all the rain we had, but Ashton's volleyball game was a success. And by "success", I mean they played very well, not that they won. The other teams' coach is a professional volunteer coach. Seriously, he has 4 teams, I think. (Get a life, buddy.)

Saturday night, Joey and I had dinner reservations at a nice restaurant in town. I had received a gift card from my boss to this restaurant, and we would never have gone without one, so we thought it would be a nice way to celebrate Joey's first week on the job.

Well, let me just tell you, Joey and I are not fancy people. We don't eat fancy food. And we don't like to spend fancy money. Let's just say that even with the $50 gift card, we still had to pay $20! CRAZY!!

At least we got a nice pic.

After dinner, we headed to Starbucks.  We drank coffee and sat and talked for a while (and I dripped coffee on my white dress.  Isn't that just what happens when you wear white?).  I think it was the best time we've had in a while.  I just love being with Joey - and sitting and catching up was just what I needed!

Sunday, Joey was back to work, I headed to church with the kids, then ran some errands before heading back to the house for a much needed nap.

Which didn't really happen because honestly, who can sleep with a cute 6 year old coming in your room every 5 minutes?

Oh, and on the way home for my nap, I saw this and had to snap a pic:

Umm... "Going out for business"??  Do you think they meant "Going out of business"??  Ha ha!

That might be why they are going out of business cause they don't know how to spell or what words to use when! ha!! I have weird dreams too girl! That is a great picture of you and your man, so glad y'all got a nice dinner!

Hahaha that sign is funny... I have a sad feeling for the dummy who printed it!

So cool your hubs was on tv and he has only been doing his job for a week! I'd have been so excited and proud of my hubs.

Also... whenever I wear white, or anything light colored, I get something on myself. It is always a given and SO frustrating!

Morgan said...

Okay, that is an adorable picture of you two. And your hair is freaking fabulous... GIMME!

I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
