As I mentioned on Saturday’s post, DH and I made a pact to do lots of activities in order for us to make the most of our “US” time that we take for granted so easily.
As planned, Saturday night, we ran to Taco Bell (packed full of teenagers) grabbed our unhealthy dinner and headed over to the theater to see American Reunion! The 9pm show was sold out, so we took our time eating in the car, people watching (outdoor mall), and then proceeded to wait for the 10pm theater to be cleaned (only to realize, they hadn’t changed the sign, and we could’ve gone in!)
American Reunion was great! It was just the laughter we needed, though we definitely lamented that we were “old,” as we were walking out of the theater. It makes sense that we identified with the older generation, right? I mean it was based on the HS c/o 1999! (DH’s HS Grad Year!). They did a good job of keeping in line with the old movies and they were even able to bring everyone back! Original cast? Even better!
Our Sunday was action packed! I woke up early to go teach Sunday school…(I bribe my girls to listen with bagels! LOL)
Then, Mr.Dubs picked me up and we were on our way to the Red Wings home opener for the first playoff series against Nashville!
The Wings lost and the series is now at 2-1 (Nashville), but it was still a fun day date outing! We stopped by Coldstone for some yummy ice cream and then took our furbabies to a nearby park that we haven’t been to, it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon!
Our full day of activities wiped us out, Mr.Dubs and I ended up falling asleep at 6pm! Of course, I woke up at 1030pm! I got some stuff ready for the work week, had a delicious midnight snack of hummus and pretzels, and read a lil of “50 Shades of Grey,” before falling back asleep at 2am!
How was your weekend?

Today is another Saturday that Mr.Dubs had to work. I usually try to make a productive me-day out of these Saturdays to myself, but am finding that the drizzling rain outside is making me very lazy. Either that, or the fact that I slept in until 11am!!!!!
The fur babies are lazily lying around and I am trying to figure out a belated to do list for the rest of the afternoon. I am also contemplating what to eat for lunch. I slept my way through breakfast, so a delicious lunch is definitely in order.
I feel like these days, the only things I look forward to is food and sleep. Work is draining and so is the up and downs of the TTC journey. So to get me through, I count down to delicious meals and the weekends where I get to fully enjoy sleeping in. Mr.Dubs’ best friend always tells us to cherish these weekends, because once a baby is in the picture, sleeping in is not an option! (He has three adorable sons!)
Mr.Dubs and I made a pact for 2012 that despite not planning our annual vacation or two, we will fill our time with spontaneous, fun activities and date nights, coupled with a few wknd road trips throughout the year, in hopes that we are able to thoroughly cherish our ‘just us’ time before babies are an actual, living breathing part of our lives!
So tonight, we’re going to order a bag of unhealthy Taco Bell goodness and sneak our 4th meal into the theater to watch American Reunion! Then tomorrow, after church we’ll be heading down to the D for the Red Wings playoffs home opener.
Yay for fun weekends, what are you up to this wknd?
