Weekend Highlights: April 1 - 3, 2011



Friday, April 1, 2011

- I left work in a good mood;

- I had to make a pit-stop at Walmart to pick up a few groceries/snacks for the weekend;

- I got home and ate dinner with Wayne (which consisted of a bowl of cereal); I've been obsessed with Berry Kix this past week;

- He then left for work for the weekend and I sat on the couch for the remainder of the night and finished season 1 and started season 2 of Brothers & Sisters on Netflix;

    Saturday, April 2, 2011

    - It was Green Grandma's 71st birthday, so we met her sister and brother-in-law (Kristi & Craig) for lunch at Bistro 11; the Horton family also decided to join us; I had the BBQ Chicken pizza, but it was cooked in a brick oven, so it was extra tasty; The food was great, just as was the conversation;

    - After a lengthy lunch, we stopped by the assisted living place to visit with Barbara; Gramma tries to visit a few times a week, but I hadn't been there in awhile, so she got to see my belly bump for the first time since I've really popped out;

    - We then stopped at Dairy Queen on our way home for a treat; ;)

    - I completed my weekly cleaning in the late afternoon/early evening; It takes me a little longer than usual as I have to take several breaks in between;

    - We watched "Everybody's Fine" that night; It was a little slow, but overall a pretty decent movie with a touching message at the end;

      Sunday, April 3, 2011

      - We had made plans earlier in the week for the family to meet at Broadway Pizza - Robbinsdale for Gram's birthday;

      - On our way there the two of us stopped at a local consignment shop to look around; I scored a few maternity items; 2 shirts and a pair of jean capri's for $26.00; I couldn't pass it up;

      - We then met up for lunch/cupcakes with everyone; again great food and conversation;

      - We also found out that Wayne's cousin Evan and his wife, Rachel, are expecting their first child this October! This is the four of us at their wedding this past October 2010:

      We are so excited that Hailey will have a new cousin and someone else to play with at family events. They will only be about 4 months apart, so it will be so fun watching them grow up together!

      Congrats again Rachel & Evan!

      - On our way home we stopped at the same consignment shop, but a different location and I scored on a couple MORE maternity items; a shirt and a dress for $15.00; AGAIN, couldn't pass it up;

      - Wayne and I had plans to watch the WWE Wrestlemania PPV last night; I am not into it as much as Wayne is, but I like to keep up-to-date on what's happening; there were several reasons why I really wanted to watch this particular PPV;

      First off, my girl Snookie from the Jersey Shore was in a match and has been making a celebrity appearance the last few weeks, so it was a must watch for me;

        She won her match and is declared WWE's Diva of the Day today. LOL!

        - Another reason was that the Legion of Doom was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.

        I realize you might not know or care why this is so important to Wayne, but he actually knows Animal from Legion of Doom (far right). Click on this LINK to read more about their career if you're interested. In short, they were and still are the best tag team in the history of wrestling. Animal lives in the Twin Cities with his family and Wayne has kept in touch with him over the years.

        At the beginning of 2011, Wayne and his friend Adam started a pro wrestling radio show called Extreme Pro Wrestling Radio. You can listen to all the podcasts on KFAN HERE.  Animal is their "guest host." It was so cool to watch him stand up there on stage with the other HOF inductees. Wayne is so proud to call him his friend.

        It was the PERFECT way to end the crazy weekend...on the couch with my love and pups!
