Weekend Stuff

Hey Monday. 
Go away.

I guess I shouldn't complain about Mondays because technically they are still part of my weekend. But, they aren't part of Garrett's. For him they mean the start of a 60+ hour work week.
Ridiculous right?

Oh how we love our weekends around here.

Want to know what we did Friday? What got us all excited and ready to get home from work? 
We opened an Amazon package that we had ordered. It was a water fountain for our boys, AKA our cats.  It was time to replace their old one and plus this new one is ceramic. It's pretty. We set it up for them and got ridiculously excited when they got their first drinks from it.
Do I hear you laughing at us?
 That's ok, I like you anyways.

Saturday we attended a work picnic Ouray was having for it's employees and their families. I didn't know anyone there but Garrett so it was awkward. Not that everyone wasn't super nice. I don't know what has happened to me, but since I have gotten older I have developed a slight case of social anxiety. The day before an event like this, all I can think about it what I'm going to wear and what if people don't like the cupcakes I bring?  And then the day of, I have butterflies pretty much the whole time.
It's silly really.

Saturday evening we had dinner with another couple. She is a girl I know from work, but barely. Yeah, Saturday was a big day for me.  I couldn't believe I agreed to so much social interaction. A picnic AND a dinner date with people I barely know? Usually I would just say no to something like that and hang out at home with Garrett. Wow, I just reread this paragraph and I made it sound worse than it actually is. But really, I am such a homebody it's not even funny.

Sunday was football day. All day. 
Proud to say that I won my first fantasy football game of the season!

The boys like Sundays because they get to cuddle on the couch with their dad all day.

I hope you all had great weekends and a happy Monday!
 Well, as happy as Mondays can be.


  1. Haha, you made me laugh out loud several times! But I'm not judging you ;)

    Every Sunday around 6pm I start upset because I feel like the weekend is over. I hate it.

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. So proud of you for getting out there! That is awesome. I think sometimes you just have to push yourself a little because social interaction with someone other then the cats and Garret is a good thing. Love your nails. It looks like Tiffany Blue. And that good old fashioned BBQ food looks delish. Welcome to the week. 60 hours is rough!! Is that overtime? I've never had to work that much.

  3. Awww I'm proud of you for being a little social butterfly! I know what you mean; sometimes it's just more fun to stay in with the hubs. I know we've talked about that glad we are to have married our best friends and actually want to be home with them rather than looking for an excuse to get out of the house.

    Can't believe G is working that goodness! Good thing he has a lot of energy...I'd be DONESKIES!

  4. So fun! It can be good to get out of your element. :)

  5. first, i love that you got the cats a water fountain - they are such pretty kitties!! :)
    it's so fun to meet new people - yay for having a great time - we just hung out with "new friends" this weekend and are so glad we did!
    lovin' your nails!!
    i hope that garrett (and you) get some much deserved down time this week and weekend! sending lots of love, whitney! <3<3<3
