what a weekend!

saturday:

  • 8:30 help with commencement preparations (time for another graduation ALREADY?!)
  • 10:00 E and i leave for Little Rock (two words: PAPER SALE! $1 per pound/paper!!!)
  • 1:00 Jennie (yay!), E and i get in line after a thorough examination of the paper, plates/napkins (i couldn’t have shopped without sweet Jennie’s help–E was quite the fuss-budget with no nap!!)
  • 1:10 spend a whopping $22.67 (!!!) on a HAUL of cute, cute, cute paper, cards/envelopes, plates/napkins
  • 1:30 go to sam’s for the “cheap” gas (pathetic that cheap gas=$3.55/gal) and search for an at&t store to buy a car charger…really need my cell phone for the rest of the day and battery is very d-e-a-d.
  • 2:15 finally get to rachel & harry’s and see my beautiful 3 1/2 week old niece, AnnMarie
  • 2:45 spontaneous photo shoot of the cousins! PERFECT to frame for Mother’s Day gift for Mom the next day!  (well, after cropping out the horrendous, blaring yellow date.)  :)

 

i can’t believe how beautiful and precious AnnMarie is–it even looks like she’s smiling here! E is being awfully greedy with the stuffed animals. :)

 

AnnMarie was getting really bored with the photo shoot & Elisabeth’s kisses. :)

 

by far, my favourite out of the 15 photos we snapped.  AnnMarie was actually crying, but it looks like she is laughing with her cousin here! :)  i love it. i love THEM. together.

 

  • 4:00 arrive at sarah’s apartment
  • 5:00 FINALLY leave LR after loading poor Quigley, Sarah’s dog, into the very back-end of my van (not to mention all of sarah’s belongings for her ten ONE night visit to arkadelphia)
  • 6:00 drop off sarah at mom & dad’s and head home. once again, FINALLY.
  • 7:15 start to try to get E to sleep (after a day of no naps–well, hardly–you would think it would be a breeze, right?!)
  • 9:00 WRONG. E finally goes to sleep. oh.my.WORD. nightmare city.
  • 10:00 collapse. :)

sunday:

  • 6:30 or 7:00 wake up to sweet doug’s mother’s day gifts AND anniversary presents (yes, they were on the same day!) my favourite part? Elisabeth bringing me “her” card. :)
  • 9:00 getting ready…doug for WORK (BAH!!) :( and me & E for church.
  • 10:00 work/church
  • 11:30 leave with mom, dad, sarah, E, once again the quigster in the back…for another little rock trip.
  • 12:30 meet rachel, harry and annmarie at mimi’s cafe–LOVED IT! (wait was 2 hours, though. we only had to wait 1 hour b/c we were driving for part of that time, but WOW.)
  • 4:00ish after dropping off sarah and the pooch, leave for arkadelphia
  • 5:00 get home
  • 5:45 doug and i leave for little rock (NO, I AM NOT KIDDING) to go on an anniversary date. :)  felt terrible for “dumping” E on my mom/dad (it was still mother’s day, after all!)…but they sweetly insisted. i’m glad. 6 years, after all, is a big deal!  :)  6 is my fav. number, so i’m guessing that means this year will be AMAZING.  :)  although, technically, we’re now on our 7th year.  which is just as nice, i suppose.  :)
  • 7:00 see made of honor. loved it.  really, really, really cute.  :)
  • 9:30 we’re old geezers and too tired to do anything else. GO HOME.  :)

THE END.

did anyone make it through this entire (mostly boring?!) play-by-play of my weekend?  my goodness.

  1. I personally loved the play-by-play. But it did make me tired. I’m sorry I forgot to wish you a happy anniversary! How cool that it was on the same day as Mother’s day. Loved the cousins pic!

  2. I enjoyed reading the recap of the weekend. Sounds like it was busy but you got a lot of quality time with your family. I can’t wait to see the entire Spencer clan in a few weeks and see precious Elisabeth and AnnMarie! Happy Anniversary!

  3. Those pics are too cute!
    Love the play-by-play. You were one busy girl!
