Weekend Recap

I didn't leave work Friday until almost 5:15! Yes, that would be the latest I have EVER left on a Friday as I'm usually running out the door as soon as the clock hands strike 3:30! But because I'm taking a day off on Monday to attend a staff development session at Central Office, I had to get everything laid out and prepared for my sub (who is amazing by the way!). 

By the time I left, I was exhausted and ready to get home. Because I was so tired, Kevin and I opted to do dinner by ourselves instead of going out with the group. But in our typical fashion, we couldn't decide where we wanted to go so we ended up calling my parents to see what were their plans. They were heading to Mayflower so we decided we'd join them. I was thrilled with our decision because when I got there I saw my cousin had came in from Virginia to join my parents for dinner. It was great catching up with him and hearing what all was going on in his life. He and the hubby hit it off right away considering he had on a Duke shirt and the hubby is a UNC fan! They spent most of the time comparing teams! (BOYS!)

After we left, Kevin and I went home and curled up in bed to watch a movie. We started watching "Young Adult" with Charlize Theron. I must admit, it didn't hold either of our attention and we both fell asleep with the movie still running! haha 

I woke up early Saturday morning so I got up and ran some errands while the hubby was still in bed. When I got back home, we had to get ready to head to his aunt's birthday party at Libby Hill. We had a great time helping her celebrate her 50th!

Later in the afternoon, we headed to Greensboro for round 3 of my birthday celebrations. Kevin and I met up with Olivia and Kristy and their boys for dinner at Olive Garden. We had so much fun sitting around catching up. We had a blast making Rich say a hundred words! He's from England and we can all just eat up his English accent (even Jacob!). 

After we ate dinner, we headed to the mall to play indoor cosmic putt putt at TILT. We had so much fun laughing and carrying on. Unfortunately I did not get any pictures from the evening but Olivia did. There was a huge sign at the counter that said "No Pictures Allowed" but Olivia took a million and one pictures while cautiously looking over her shoulder each time. As soon as she emails them to me, I'll post them for you guys to see! I have to admit since it was cosmic putt putt the pictures looked really cool on her camera! 

When we left the mall it was pouring down rain but that didn't stop me and Kevin from taking a trip to Krispy Kreme! We had to get some shamrock donuts for St. Patty's Day! And without a doubt, Rimy got one too!

After stuffing our faces with donuts, we left the house and headed to the Vault to celebrate St. Patty's Day with Brooke and Bryan and some of Kevin's old best friends. I finally got to meet Sara, Alan's fiance. She's a first year teacher too so we hit it off immediately. We swapped stories for two hours! Around 12:30, we had to leave the Vault because the police came and shut it down. Yes, you understood correctly and no, it was not because there was a fight but there has been. Over the last few weeks, the Vault has had many fights break out so the police are constantly patrolling the area (which is not hard though considering it's directly across from our police station!). Sadly, with all of the fights that have occurred in the past, the county commissioners want to see the place shut down so they rolled up in the joint around midnight for an inspection. Needless to say, they weren't happy with some things they saw (i.e. empty alcohol bottles being out behind the bar, waitresses drinking, etc) so it was shut down for the night.

But don't worry, the party wasn't over. We all piled in the car and headed down the block to the new Irish pub in town. That was the place to be. They had Irish music playing and all of the staff were dressed like leprechauns! They were also painting faces for free! 

Everyone didn't leave our house till after 4:30 on Sunday morning so we didn't end up in bed till around 5am. Needless to say, I didn't make it to church :/ I felt bad but I just couldn't make myself get up! I was exhausted! And before you even think it, I didn't have a hangover! I didn't even drink the night before because I didn't know if I'd need to be driving anyone home! But anyways, I finally made myself get up around 12 and got ready to head to my parents for lunch.

After lunch, my mom and I headed to a friend's wedding shower. It was great catching up with the bride to be and my other friends!

Here's Tracy's gift I put together! I looooved how it turned out!
 RCHS's finest!

Since I got back home from the shower, I've done nothing but lay around the house. I had a list of stuff I wanted to accomplish but the only two things that were marked off were work out and put up the laundry! haha I guess the rest will have to be done tomorrow. 

Anyways, hope you ladies had a great weekend and an even better week!
