It was another busy weekend here at our house. Friday night was Steve's dad's birthday. He is now 72 years young! We all celebrated by going out to dinner and then over to their house to play games. I didn't take any pictures, but we had a good time!
Saturday was all about getting all my college kids packed up and ready to head back to school.
We washed clothes and packed cars and hugged everyone goodbye. I was sad to see them go. We have had such a good Christmas and I will really miss them. I don't think I'll ever get used to seeing their car drive off. I always get a lump in my throat. But they were ready to get back. I will be praying for them everyday that they will have a good semester! I love all my sweeties.
Saturday afternoon Ashley and I took dinner to a friend of ours who just had her second little girl. The baby got here about three weeks early and she is just a tiny little thing. I brought her chicken and bacon with rice and Ashley did the green beans and blueberry crisp.
I had to drop dinner off quickly because Steve and I met two of our college friends, David and April, for dinner and a Charlotte Bobcats game last night. We have known David since high school. He and I sat were in lots of classes together. Then he was Steve's roommate in college, too. And he was also in our wedding. We just love them, but we don't get to see them much. David is a doctor with a very successful practice and a houseful of three teenagers and that keeps them very busy. We had so much fun catching up with them last night, though!
Okay...now on to some totally trivial things, but I just had to get your opinion on this. Yesterday I was standing in line at the grocery store and this magazine caught my eye.
I couldn't see any of the words on it, so I had no idea who it was. I stood there for the longest time thinking this girl looked familiar but I couldn't place who it was! What do you think of Kate Gosselin's hair??
Also, I haven't seen Julie and Julia yet.
Since I am home with no kids now (that is just so weird!) I was thinking I might have time to watch it this week sometime. But I have heard mixed reviews. If you saw it, what did you think??
