Week In My Life: Saturday/Sunday

Welcome to my weekend!! 
Today is my last day linking up with Mel @ Adventuroo. Hasn’t it been a fantastic project? 
Mel is a rock-star for hosting.
Instead of doing separate Saturday & Sunday posts, I decided to combine them into one, solitary post. Sure, maybe it’s the lazy way out… but we were so busy Sunday, I didn’t need one more thing on my to-do list. And you weren’t going to read yesterday’s post until now anyway, right? 

Saturday started a little late for this chic. If you recall, on Friday, the hubs & I went out to a work meeting, followed by an open-bar dinner. I was hurting a bit Saturday morning. I was grateful the hubs let me sleep in, and the kids were relatively entertained, so I could veg out and watch Roseanne while I sipped my coffee and worked on Friday’s post. I wasn’t super hungover… just… really tired… hurting, and definitely not up for drinking… or making lunch. 
Since Natalie had a birthday party & I had to sing at 5p Mass… we had some things to do, so we decided to go somewhere “easy” for lunch, and near a Target since we hadn’t purchased a birthday gift for Natalie’s friend yet. 
Sedona wasn’t super happy about going to Bob Evans… she wanted to go to Founders. Here’s her “I want to go to Founders face” I don’t blame her… but the last thing Momma needed Saturday morning… was a beer. Sad, but true. 
On the way to lunch, we noticed that gas was really cheap at one station, but way more $$ at the next. So we turned around to get gas for $3.19. WIN. It went up an hour later.
Lunch went surprisingly well… no real fights to break up, both kids ate their meals, and the hubs & I enjoyed a hearty pot-pie to coat the tummies we abused the night before. I started feeling better after a good meal.
After lunch, we hit up Target, the hubs dropped Sedona & I off at home so I could get ready for church, and he could drop off Natalie at her birthday party. 
I was starting to feel better… but, I really didn’t want to sing at church. 
Especially the song I was soloing on. 
This is how I felt about it…
As I walked into church, two high school instrumentalists were playing Rolling in the Deep… so, I of course, sang along. Still not sure how the girls felt about someone twice (!!) their age singing along, but OH WELL. It was fun. 
I snuck a snapshot of my view from where I sing before the church fills up with people. 
I botched the solo… but managed to keep up. The tempo was much faster than I practiced, and my nerves got to me. The usual Sunday choir was there (instead of our pitiful once/month Saturday choir, where we’re lucky to get 6 people singing) and I learned, about 15 minutes before Mass began, that I was sitting next to the former President of Opera Grand Rapids. No pressure or anything.
Once I ran out of church with my tail between my legs, I headed home to watch the rest of the Michigan State Football game… and we won!! WOO-HOO! I can’t believe I haven’t posted a video all week. So, here’s my girls singing the fight song. 
We whipped together a good dinner for our girls and then Natalie shaved the hubs… thought this was a sweet moment to capture… 
Onto Sunday… SUNDAY!
We were busy all weekend. 
The bulk of Sunday morning was spent making Natalie’s wolf costume. We have a sewing machine, but I wanted to keep it simple. So… most of her costume is put together with duct-tape & staples. Hey, she loves it. All that matters!

Here she is, howling like a wolf… 

The next task of the day? 
Yup, I’ve been ignoring them for at least a week or so… and with the potential for snow this week, we had to deal with them. I love LOVE our wooded neighborhood. I hate living on a corner lot.
But, we managed to capture a few memorable snapshots. Can’t beat these…
In between raking, raking, raking, the hubs & I took turns watching the Lions pull off a WIN! Just when we were about to give up on football season, this weekend provided our teams with two wins… love that. 
The hubs made me quit after almost 2 hours of heavy yard-work, which was nice, because I’m not hurting as bad as I thought I would this morning. But… we ran out of yard-waste bags and still have a lot of leaves to tackle. So our piles will have to wait… 
Did you enjoy being a fly on the wall in my life this week? I hope so. I’ll try to capture a few highlights in a recap post tomorrow.

    I have LOVED reading your posts this week! I wish we lived closer so our kids could play together. I think Dean and Sedona would be best pals. Gosh, and if we could add Alissa, Tim and Liam into the mix? Heaven. Thanks for sharing your week with us!!!

      I couldn’t agree more, Jen. It really sucks that the three of us live in three different states. Our kids would be the three amigos if we at least lived in the same state for sure… and getting to hang out with you & Alissa for playdates would ROCK!!

      It was fun being a fly on the wall in your life this week! CHEERS to you, Jen!

    Playing in the leaves….what great pictures. We live in the desert so not too many leaves to play in here. But I can remember raking leaves just to jump in them as a kid.

      I LOVE the leaves… on the trees. And I even enjoy them on the ground, for about 15 minutes. Then… as the days turn into weeks of back-breaking-raking, I actually start to look forward to the snow… to cover up the last bits of leaves we’re too tired to rake up. HA! Enjoy the desert!! I miss it!
