Agg... I hate when I get behind on blogging and have to play catch up. It's been awhile since I have posted. We have had a lot going on yet I have very few pictures to show for it. No excuses!
Two weeks ago Jason went to Atlanta for work. What do you do when your hubby is gone for a week. Well play, eat out, play some more and eat out some more oh and of course miss him like crazy.
Monday morning I dropped Jason off at the airport and picked up my good friend Anna-Marie from RI. She was in town for SU's leadership summit and arrived a day early so we could play. =) I took her to my favorite bakery Haggerman's for lunch, did a little shopping, chatted and finished the night at Rumbi Grill. As always it was nice to get to see her and her little boy. There was only 10 minutes of the day I did not enjoy and that was when both of our boys were in the backseat having a crying match. One would calm down just as the other one would start up. It was the longest drive to dinner I have ever had. Alex was covered in tears when I pulled into the parking lot. So sad!!! Overall it was a wonderful day getting to hang out with her. I also ran into a few other demos at the hotel and got to chat with them. As much as I love being a SAHM I miss my SAMees, they are such a great group of women.
Tuesday I did some cleaning and then I had two of my good buddies Jen and Nat over for a girls night out. We had pizza and chatted, it's always so much fun when I get to spend time with them.
Wednesday my niece Jillian and her BF Andrea came down for the day. We made binky holders and headbands and bows for the new baby. My front room was covered in ribbons and flowers and jewels etc. We had some much fun though. We hit Pei Wei for dinner before they headed home.
Speaking of Jillian, she was due yesterday and no baby as of today. =( Can you tell I am a tad bit anxious? I get to be there for the birth and can't wait to see her. Wednesday was also the 15th which meant Alex turned 17 months old.
Here are a few fun pictures of Nate and Alex playing together and a cute video. On a side note I wish I had a picture of the cutest thing that happened a few weeks ago. Nat and I were busy prepping when we turned around and found Alex laying in Gavin's lap while Gavin stroked his hair and face. It was the sweetest thing ever. I did get a quick picture on my cell phone but didn't get a chance to grab the real camera.
Saturday I planned a Girls Night Out with my Moms' group. Unfortunately numbers were low but that didn't stop us from having a terrific time. We had dinner at Pei Wei and then headed over to Gardner Village for their Witches' Night Out. Thanks to Natalie our amazing photographer for the evening, here are a few fun photos of that night.

As we were walking around we were stopped by these two guys asking if they could interview us. Being the dorks we are of course we said sure. Jen just watched since she wasn't wearing a hat. After we made complete fouls of ourselves I asked what it was for. Comcast on demand I was told. Eek... Great now we will be on tv, lucky very few people I know will have the luxury of seeing the interview. We tracked the guys down after leaving realizing that we need a blog worthy photo to remember the moment. I think they thought we were a little nuts, oh well.
Recognize this scary witch? We had to track her down and ask for a picture, we weren't the only ones requesting one. Libby happily informed us after the photo that not only was she nice but she smelled good too. Oh Libby, you crack us up!
Posing by the candy shop, we took way more photos than needed. We spent the night laughing, dancing, watching people ( oh the people you see) eating and of course shopping. Thanks girls for the fun night, thanks hubbies for watching our kiddos so we could play.
So there are my two weeks in a nutshell. Hopefully my next post will be title Great Aunt Sharie, will my sweet niece Jillian luck, we want this baby here ASAP.
