What a Weekend...

...and its not even Saturday night!!! Yesterday was a big day in my life, a day of firsts...I mowed the grass for the first time EVER and Matt wasn't even home and didn't even ask! Backstory so you don't all think I was a spoiled child...growing up, we lived on a hill that was basically straight up and straight down. Our uncle had a similiar hill and while mowing, his mower flipped over and he messed up his wrist...basically his watch saved his whole hand from being cut off. So from that point on, my dad refused to let us mow the lawn...EVER! Don't worry, I had my fair share of dishes to wash, ice trays to fill (this was the one I HATED the most) and trash to take out! So Friday, I got home from work early and was feeling motivated plus we just got a new mower a couple weeks ago so I figured it would be easier than our 10 year old one we had that just went to Lawnmower Heaven. Matt was very impressed when he got home although I didn't have "lines" in it!

Then we headed over to Florissant for dinner with some college girlfriends of mine and their beaus. We ate at Cugino's which was pretty good but not for the price we paid, does that make sense? Then we headed back to Kim's house for drinks and good 'ole visiting and listening to the Cards! I drank some of my favorite wine which I haven't had in probably 2 years and I'd forgotten how good it was. Now Lucy, please don't boycott me when I say this but there's really only two wines that I like and they aren't even that exciting or exotic. What can I say...I'm a beer girl! The wine I had last night was Sutter Home Moscato or as I like to call especially after a few drinks, mostocoli wine! So it was a great night of food, wine and friends...what's better than that!?!

Saturday morning, Matt got up about 6am to head to KC to visit MY friends while I'm stuck in the STL working!!! He promised them to help with their landscaping and this was the only weekend to do it. I called him about 2pm and they were "working" inbetween bbqing and drinking beer...I told them all that I was JEALOUS!!!

But now I'm just exhausted in these last few hours of the day, I met a friend at 8:30am for a trial 5K and then to a big event at work and now all I want to do is take a shower to cool off and go to sleep! Tomorrow, I'm going to church by myself, I'm kind of nervous and then to work and then around 6pm tomorrow night, I'll see my pretty husband!!! Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Busy little bee. I cut the grass Thursday for the first time in 7 years! Hehehe. Hubby has been super busy, so I figured I would try to help. I have to agree with you on the beer. Yum. I have never really tried wine, but I would like to some day. Matt does work like my hubby. LOL. I can't wait to meet ya!!

Congrats on your successful mowing! I am VERY accident prone and neither my parents or husband trust me to do it. Kudos to you!

And I would never boycott you. I firmly believe everyone should drink exactly what they like.
