This has been such a good weekend. I got to meet up with my girlfriends(formerly known as my infertility group). I got to visit with them and hang with all of their babies(there are four of them now, with two more on the way), which was good for my soul.
They got me a gift card for a massage. So sweet!! I don't know what I did to deserve that but I can tell you right now that I won't be wasting any time in using it. I am going to call tomorrow and make a reservation. Thanks so much girls!
Yesterday I met up with my friend Carla and her girls at the Chocolate Festival. I have one word to describe it. Yum! You buy a book of tickets(which my friend Carla treated me to-thanks Carla!) and then you go around to each vendor and redeem your tickets for delicious chocolate treats. I had chocolate covered strawberries, a chocolate brownie with fruit topping, some chocolate gelato, and a mini B.J.'s chocolate chip Pizookie with vanilla ice cream. And I got a red velvet cupcake to take home to Joe!
Oh yeah, and a a little bit of a stomachache :) But soooo worth it.
Then we headed back to Carla's house where we attempted to dye our eyelashes. Yeah, you read that right. It was Carla's idea. The reasoning is that you dye your eyelashes black, and then you don't have to put on mascara every morning. I thought this would be a good thing, since I have blond eyelashes and without mascara they totally blend in and you can't even see them.
It didn't work out quite as planned. First off, the directions were in German. Yeah, neither Carla nor I speak(or read) German.
Secondly, I kept getting the dye in my eyes and kept having to rinse it out before the allotted 15 minutes. Yeah, that stung a little. Okay, a lot.
Finally I was able to apply the dye and keep it on for 15 minutes, but we're not sure if it worked or not because my eyelashes don't really look that much darker.
Oh well. We had fun trying :)
Today we don't have much planned but that's fine with me because I am still fighting this sore throat and cough and would really just like for it to go away now. I have had my fair share of sickness this month and I'm ready to feel good for more than a week.
What really hit home for me this weekend is that I have some awesome friends.
Thanks Lynn, Teena, Jenny and Carla for a wonderful weekend. I am very lucky to have you all in my life.
I don't really have many pictures of the weekend because I was so busy having fun that I forgot to take them.
I'm going to go wake up Joe now and see if he will go for a walk with me. He worked last night so he's probably not ready to get up quite yet. But he'll do it for me ;)
Hope your weekend is going well too!
P.S. We weren't able to get Joe's car started, so it's still sitting in the parking lot at the shopping center. He doesn't know what's wrong with it and his Dad is going to come over today and take a look at it(he used to be a mechanic). I can't even think about it right now. I can't go through the car troubles that we had this time last year again. The only good thing right now is that Joe doesn't have a job so we can share a car but I don't know what we'll do if it can't be fixed. Send good car vibes please! :)
