Weekend happenings

We had a pretty great but pretty busy weekend! We started it off by hanging out with these three monkeys.
We had a pizza party and then a pajama movie night where even we changed into the pj's we brought while their parents were enjoying themselves at the coldplay concert. I brought over my elephant so they could enjoy it since we had it just sitting around getting dusty.
We ended up staying up pretty late Friday evening since they got home from the concert pretty late. I figured I would wake up before 11 without an alarm so I didn't set one. I had to pick up my God daughter at noon for a friend's daughter's 1st birthday party. I figured I would give her mother an afternoon off. Imagine my surprise when I woke up and realized it was 11 already and I had only an hour to shower, get ready and pick her up. I was about to jump into the shower and heard a very friendly knock at the door, I figured it was a family member stopping by. By the time I had gotten dressed to answer the door no one was there but a girl was walking away from my neighbors door so I asked if she had knocked. She said she had and asked if she could come up, 1st mistake. She was rambling on and seemed so over the top, she even had on red glitter eyeliner. She then asked if she could come in, 2nd mistake. She asked me a few silly questions and then if she could send me a postcard. The girl didn't even know how to spell the name of our city, very weird. I then looked at the clock and realized I only had 45 minutes now and HAD to get going. The girl wouldn't take no for an answer, I am pretty sure I told her 4 different ways I was out of time, money and wasn't interested in buying a magazine from her. She finally got it and left!! Hubby was at the firehouse and laughed at me for letting her in. Then he admitted he let a hot girl in once in college and learned his lesson.
I finally was able to get out the door to the party though!
Sydney loved the trampoline at the party and was there almost the entire time. She even found a new little friend who she had to hug when we were leaving, scary.
That evening I had a sleepover with the YL freshman girls. The rule for the night was that you had to bring something to dip in chocolate fondue. The girls loved it even though we ended up with 4 types of pretzels. We also watched the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants II, very cute. I loved how realistically they portrayed the sex scene and what all comes with that it.

We ended up having 9 girls plus me and had an amazing evening.
The girls got picked up pretty early so I was able to have the day free with Hubby. I picked up a cute purple velvet blazer from J Crew on my way home, I will post photos of it tomorrow! I got a call though from a friends asking if we could watch her little 2 year old so that she could go see Twilight with her sister. Here is a picture of little Caraline today all decked out in Bronco's gear.

We all then went out to dinner and had a pretty good time! My hubby has the next 3 days off so I am excited about that despite the fact he has to work Thanksgiving this year (it just falls on his shifts rotation.)


Hubby and doggie asking if I would hang out with them! Look at how happy Ridley is, is almost showing all of you how she can smile.

Hanging out watching a movie.

I have decided to read the first Twilight book so that I am informed since I am sure that won't be the first parent to ask me about them.

Hope you all had great weekends as well!
