Saturday Shopping Spree - Sacrilegious Sunday

Saturday was a nice day...
I worked from 8:00AM - 11:30AM to get caught up on some receipts that hadn't been entered. I got some done, but not all of them. I HATE that I am an over-achiever sometimes because it leads me to do stupid things like work on my day off. It was MY choice though, and it needed to be done, so that was that.

After that, I came home, showered, and then waited for Andi to come over. My AWESOME husband had volunteered to watch all of our children (our own 2 plus Andi's 2) so that we could go shopping. I must say that he did a FABULOUS job. Poor Jeremy - we thought we'd only be gone 2-3 hours... which turned into 5+ hours. Whoops!
He was SO good with the kids though. Addy (Andi's 6-month old daughter) gets a little separation anxiety when her mommy isn't around, so she had 2 small crying episodes and after calling to make sure he was doing the right thing, Jeremy handled it like a pro-Daddy! How many men would volunteer to watch 4 children and do a good job at it? Not any that I know - that's for sure. Addy did fine the first 2 hours and it turns out that the first time she cried she was WAY hungry, and then the 2nd time she was tired. Andi was really thankful and bought us all lunch AND dinner on Saturday. She did NOT have to do that, but she insisted.
She & I ate Souper Salad for lunch...in true fatty fashion. I got 2 plates right from the start. I filled one with a HUGE salad, and the other with a baked potato, tuna salad, and cornbread. It was all SO good. That was one of the best salads I've had in a long time. Then of course - dessert for sweet-tooth Jessica - DUH! I had strawberry shortcake and Andi feasted on an ice cream sundae. Great treat for both of us!
Anyway, the purpose of our going shopping was to find dresses for Ashleigh & Addyson (her 2 daughters) to wear for their pictures next week. After TJMaxx, Children's Place, and Dillard's...Macy*s was the winner! We found 2 dresses there and they are SO cute. They are all white and the girls are going to look so angelic - the perfect Summer dresses! We then went to Sam's and bought formula for each of our baby's.
The kids had fun together while we were away, and I got to go shopping in peace with a girlfriend alone, so it was good times for all! It's funny because I talk to Andi all day long via email and we still don't run out of things to say. In fact, we were sitting there at Souper Salad just chatting away after we finished eating and I had to say, "Let's finish this conversation in the car." Too funny! (JUST like with my friend Julie - same thing always happens with her, and I talk to her 84 million times a day!)

So on to Sunday...
We went to Going Bonkers in Lewisville at noon. I met Julie and her 2 children (Maddie-6 & Trey-10) there. Cathy drove me, Gannon, Nicki, herself, & Jaydon there in her old lady minivan. She hates her van, so I have to give her a hard time about it! Anyway, we were there for about 3 hours and the kids had a GREAT time. They played their little hearts out, and Jaydon took a nap which was nice.
One of the 10 commandments is: "Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy"...well, that did not happen today. I went BACK to work this evening to finish up some stuff. Sadly, I'm not done yet and I HATE thinking that I probably won't be by Tuesday. I'm going to get pimples stressing about this! Jeremy was up there with me filing stuff and putting old invoices (2005, 2006, & 2007) away so I could just enter the receipts. Jaydon was asleep in the car, (there was a nice breeze tonight and all of the windows to the car were open) and Jacoby fell asleep in his swing. I am so lucky that Jeremy helped me. At first, I was up there alone. Then I get a phone call saying that he's on his way up and he wants to help...nice husband! :)
(He wants to play in a 2-day golf tournament next weekend for $35 with a chance of winning $300 cash if he wins first place. I'm thinking that his subconscious is making him be WAY nice to me - hence all of the nice things that were done this weekend...okay, maybe not...he's REALLY just a nice husband!)

I got some groceries done on my way home, and that was my weekend.
Not too eventful - sorry to disappoint my readers.

My Dad comes into town this week so that should be fun for the boys.
I'll try to blog at some point.

Have a GREAT week!

I'm glad you really did have fun shopping with me. I've never had such a hard time finding the perfect thing before...but then again, I don't have much experience at finding TWO perfect, corrdinating dresses in the right size! Thanks again to Jeremy! I'm sorry you felt like you had to work Sunday :(

OK, I'm officially jealous! There's no way on God's green earth that Mike would ever volunteer to watch more children so I could go shopping! Hmm, I think I need to get Mike and Jeremy together-soon! It's awesome you had such a nice time. We'll have to get together again, but well before your new baby gets here!
