Friday night J and I went out for dinner and drinks. My mom was able to come over and watch the boys for a few hours for us. It was so nice to get a little adult time. I had one hell of day on Friday. I'm talking, I didn't get out of my pj's until 6:30 (pm) when I went to shower for dinner. But the day ended on a good note.
Saturday was a "me" day. I had a date with the girls to watch Breaking Dawn Part 2. I am a huge "Twilight" fan. I wasn't until after the first movie. I then read the books. I have re-read the whole series at least 3 times. (I am a big book worm) Last year, when Part 1 was released, I had a newborn. So I didn't get to see the movie until it came out on DVD. I was not missing opening weekend this time around! I told J that I would even go by myself if I had to. Luckily, my good friend, B, had a little girls "Brunch/Movie Date" planned. We met up at BJ's Brewhouse for lunch (and a kid free cerveza) and then headed over to the theatre. Let me just say, "OMG!!!", the movie was awesome. I can't wait to see it again. After the movie I grabbed some Chinese food and headed home to the family. Once the boys were in bed I continued working on birthday party decor. I swear I am going to be working on it the morning of the party. I started about 3 weeks ago but just can't get it done! (part of why I am under pressure).
Sunday, we were up early. We had to meet B for a re-shoot of our Holiday pictures. Yes, I said re-shoot. We had our first session last Saturday. She got one good family pic of us. ONE!!!!! I knew it was going to be that way, too. Seth is just at that age where he will not cooperate for anything. He ran around like a kid with ants in his pants. He wouldn't stop, he wouldn't look at the camera, he was completely out of control. The minute we got in the car I said, "what a disaster!" Poor B, luckily she has one Seth's age so she knows how it is. Yesterday was a little better. We kind of just let him run around and took candid shots. Caleb was more of a pill yesterday. I still haven't heard the verdict though. I think I am done taking pics of the boys until they are older. Except for the annual birthday pics. It will be a good 2 or 3 years before I try to get "family" pics done again. I kind of feel like I'm wasting my money. We went to breakfast at an old favorite of ours in Arlington. Delicious Mexican food. The good stuff. Growing up with a grandma who made the most amazing Mexican food ever has really spoiled me. I am very particular. But this place was on point, as usual. My afternoon was filled with a 2 hour trip to Wal-Mart, a run to Target, and a ton of cleaning, organizing, and decorating. Anyone hate white walls? I do. J would have plain white walls if I would let us. He hates to hang up pictures. I forced him to do it last night. I am still not done hanging pictures though.
Today, my wonderful in-laws and Pawpaw will be coming into town for the week. I still have to clean up my guest room, hang pictures, and clean the carpet. All while chasing after my two wild children. And at some point I have to finish the birthday party decorations.
