Weekly Recap {April 4-10, 2011}

Monday, April 4, 2011

It was my sister Amie's 14th Birthday. I went over to my parents house for dinner after work. Wayne had to work that evening, so he couldn't make it. My Mom made spaghetti and then Amie opened up her gifts. She loves to read, so my parents got her a Nook. Both my brother and I have one, so she has wanted one for awhile. I love that she is 14 and so amped to read. After chatting and teaching her a little about her Nook, we had cupcakes and ice cream.

Since all 4 of us kids were there and that doesn't always happen, we always like to try and get a good picture.

It's us 4 kids + mini me at 26 weeks.

I met my friend Laura for dinner at Champps after work. I hadn't seen her since she had Ben at the hospital. That was in February. We had tons to catch up on. For me it was mostly baby and house talk. For her it was mostly baby and wedding talk. We met up at about 6pm and didn't leave the restaurant until 10pm. 4 HOURS OF STRAIGHT TALKING! We could have definitely stayed later, but decided against it. It was so great to see her and just talk. There is nothing like having such a great friend that you have so much in common with that you can talk for 4 hours and could still keep on going.

- Friday morning I went into work late because I had my glucose tolerance test; I didn't hear anything back that day, which I took as a good sign. Not so much, they called me Monday afternoon and told me my levels are "slightly" elevated. I was at 143 and they like to see 135 or below. So Dr. E is ordering the 3 hour glucose test. Not looking forward to it, but I am going to do whatever I have to in order for this baby to be ok. I'm scheduled to go in this coming Monday, 4/18.

- I stopped at Motherhood Maternity on my way home from work and bought my first pair of maternity jeans. I thought it was about time and being as I was going out for my birthday the next night and I REALLY needed them.

- After I got home I continued my Friday night ritual of sitting on the couch watching Season 2 of Brothers & Sisters via Netflix.

- Today was my birthday. 

- I got up and helped Grams take her two cockers to the Vet.

- Got home and completed my cleaning for the week.

- Took a shower and packed my overnight bag. Met Wayne at Babies R' Us to finish registering for Hailey. He gave me my diamond earrings for my birthday. We had picked them out in February and put them on layaway. I wasn't expecting them until Mother's Day. We then had dinner with my family.

- We met a few of my friends and family members at Babe's Music Bar in Lakeville. Wayne is there every Saturday night for his appearance.

- Wayne's appearance is done at midnight, but we didn't leave until about 12:30am, didn't get back to the parents house until after 1am, which means I didn't get to bed until 1:30am. It was a long night and I even got on the dance floor for a couple songs.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

- I woke up at 10am feeling hungover, which is funny since I didn't have any alcohol. I think I was just so sore, achy and tired. I really overdid it and stayed up WAY passed my bedtime.

- After lunch with the family Wayne and I headed home and each took a much needed nap. We ate dinner and then went on a DQ run. We each ended the night watching our respective TV shows...Brothers & Sisters was a new 2 hour episode.

Great week overall and I had such a great birthday!
