An Odd but Good Weekend

Dave's family had a reunion yesterday but Dave had to work so we weren't planning on going. My MIL however was and she wanted to show off her grandchildren. Since Dave was actually only scheduled till 3 (this never happens) he picked up the kids so I could come straight home and relax a little before we had to leave to meet the MIL.

After we dropped the kids off Dave and I decide to go over to Polaris and get some Steak Escape for dinner. On our way to the food court some sales people for the Comfort Zone stopped Dave and he decided to get us both a 10 minute neck, shoulders, and back massage. It felt so good and it was a great way to start the weekend. By the time we were done with that we were both starving so we went straight to Steak Escape and enjoyed a good sandwich. To my surprise Dave actually was willing to walk around the mall and window shop. We went into the Itsy Bitsy World and looked at all the cute and different toys for the kids. Then we headed over to my favorite store at Polaris The Olde Farmstead. I could spend hours in that store looking at all the different knick knacks. I could also spend a small fortune there. Our last stop in the mall was at one of the Buckeye Stores and I found a couple of really cute tees for this fall. Once we left the mall we headed over to Target so Dave could pick up Clint Eastwoods latest movie Gran Torino. Of course that meant as soon as we got home we had to watch it. I really didn't think I was going to like it because I'm not really a Clint fan but it was surprisingly good movie.

Saturday morning I had to be up bright and early to go into work. We have an audit coming up which means they have offered us comp time to get things caught up and to write procedures for our manual. I left work a little after 11:30 and met Shanna and Jenn for lunch and to discuss our To Do List for our 10 year class reunion. I'm not sure if I have mentioned it on here but two months from today I will have my 10 year class reunion and Jenn, Shanna, and I are the ones planning all the events. After lunch I came home and sat and watched TV until Dave got home from work. Then Dave and I went to Smokey Bones for dinner. Neither of us have been there in a long time so it was a nice change and the food was great. After dinner we stopped by Wal-mart to do some research on Power Wheels for the kids and then we headed home.

Sunday I slept in which was oh so nice. Once I got up I got ready for the day, did some cleaning and laundry, and just relaxed before the kids got home. If it wouldn't have been for the four hours of work the weekend would have been perfect.
