Weekends and pet peeves...

Well, the weekend is a blur already...UGH!!

This weekend we were getting all our back to school gear finished for Cael who starts 1st grade on Wednesday!  AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!  I had purchased several items off his supply list already and I just needed to get the last couple of things plus new uniforms and a booksack.  Off the 3 of us went on what was sure to be a fun-filled adventure.  I just love fighting BR traffic and travelling from store to store to find that one "difficult" item on the supply list.  This year my nemesis was listed as follows...

1 grade 1-2 handwriting tablet

Seems easy enough, right?  Well, I have news for you, I had to go to 2 different Wal-Marts and Office Depot and I'm still not 100% sure what I bought is correct. 

We go this afternoon to drop off supplies and meet his teacher and that's when I'll know for sure. 

Yesterday we went to Ponchatoula to visit my sister, Amanda and nephew Bode.  I was really missing them and I wanted the boys to get together before school starts.  Here is a pic of the weasels!!

They crack me up! 

And thanks to my wonderful sister and rapidly growing nephew, Cael has several pair of uniform shorts to start the new year.  Thanks, Sis!!!

We also skyped with these kids yesterday...

Happy 1st Anniversary to the Abads!  Love y'all!!

I also cooked a couple pinterest recipes this weekend and I'll post on those later.  Let's just say I had a very happy camper! :)

And finally, I'd like to share with everyone my number one one of my many pet peeves.  It's an epidemic that's spreading across restaurants everywhere called SAME SIDE SITTING.  Allow me to explain.  When a couple walks in a restaurant and they are placed in a booth, they choose to sit on the same side of the booth rather than across from each other.  WTH????????  Can ANYONE explain the reasoning for this??  It looks weird and I do not understand it AT ALL!  If there are any SSS out there reading this that want to defend your seating choices, feel free.  For now, I'll leave y'all with a snapshot of some SSS offenders I encountered at Santa Fe on Saturday night...


  1. I don't get this at all. I don't like it either. It just looks weird!

  2. I'm so glad we just have to pay a supply fee.
