Weekend Update (I need another name for these)

This weekend flew by way too fast for my liking, but what weekend doesn't?  I started my weekend off with a doctor's appointment with my fertility specialist.  I will get into those details in another post on another day.  I followed my appointment up with some lunch with my husband at Dish Cafe which was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.  Then I promptly planted my butt on the couch and binged watched some tv shows in my dvr.  Oh and went to mexican food with my husband that night (late) and he got food poisoning (I didn't) from it.  So let's just say that Saturday wasn't that great for him.

Saturday I got my oil changed (for the first time) and my husband spent boo-ko bucks on a car wash.  Since we were carless for awhile, we walked about half a mile to Cafe DeLuxe (yes we ate out a lot this weekend) for some breakfast.  Since my husband wasn't feeling well, we didn't do much Saturday afternoon (he slept) until it was time to meet our friends for dinner and the Rodeo.  They were the best company for an awesome evening.  We watched the barrel races, bare back horse riding, bull riding, mutton bustin (cutest event EVER), etc.  It is one of my favorite events of the year.

Since we are getting old and the line was crazy long, we opted out of the Jack Daniels tent which I have been going to forever.  Sad to miss it this year, but not sad about missing the $8 Jack and Cokes, many drunken idiots (though they are fun to watch) and the massive hangovers.

Sunday was spent like most Sundays: chores, grocery shopping and cooking dinner (first meal at home in days).  But Sunday morning started off really sadly (if that sentence makes sense).  We got a text message at the Rodeo about my husband's parents cat being really sick.  He was diagnosed with diabetes about 6 months ago and has been going strong since.  But three days ago, he stopped eating and drinking much.  We headed over to his parents house Sunday morning to hang out with Teddie (the awesome black cat) and say our goodbyes.  He was really responsive to us and I sat there crying and petting him for as long as I could.  The big guy loved his pets under his chin and something I will always remember.  After tears were shed, many tissues used and some great memories, we headed off to breakfast.  As of this morning, Teddie is still alive and kickin, so please say some prayers for the little dude.  He could use them.

Sunday night we cooked up some amazing turkey burgers and corn on the cob using our new grill, oh wait, Home Depot still doesn't know where our new Weber Grill Genesis E-330 Series is.  Super lame.  It has been a month since ordering it and nothing.  But nonetheless, we grilled burgers on our old grill, took Walter for a walk and ended the evening with some Naked and Afraid.  I love this show and no I could never make it the 21 days anywhere.

How was your weekend?  Do you have any 4th of July plans?  Ours are still up in the air.


  1. I feel the same about naming my posts. I have joined a link up on Mondays partly for that particular reason--check it out on my blog's hosted by a blog friend of mine, Katie. It was a HOT weekend here, but I loved it! We are headed to Columbus, OH for the fourth to visit some friends..can't wait! Enjoy your short week.

    1. Thank you for the link for the Monday posts. I will check out your blog!

      Sounds like you have a fun fourth planned and I can't wait to read it online.
