Randy Rogers Band

Thursday, the Randy Rogers Band played at George’s Majestic Lounge on Dickson. It was the 81st Anniversary of George’s and it was packed! Luckily, between all the people we knew going, there were 3 tables right by each other which worked out very well. Randy Rogers Band is very fun and much to our chagrin, becoming more popular which means more and more people pack into the venue, but hopefully that only means he’ll come back more often!

As this was my birthday eve, Heather brought a cake to share with everyone at midnight… it was very sweet of her to do and a great way to kick off my actual birthday! Sorry… no pictures of this cake…

Another margarita por favor!

Lindsey’s birthday continued through the week! As tradition, Lindsey, Lynn and I went out dinner, this time we went to Abuelo’s, mainly for the sangria swirl margaritas! It was a good time and always fun for us to get together.

Lynn and I have been friends for 10 years now – we met on the very first day in the very first class for both of us at the University of Arkansas. Lindsey and I met a couple of years later when we both worked at Bath and Body Works. Our lives have all taken much different paths yet we’ve all 3 remained close. I hosted both of the bachelorette parties, was in both of their weddings, hosted both of their baby showers and was there at the hospital with both of them immediately after their first babies were born and was one of the first to hold both of them. That’s quite a lot just in the past 5 years. The first 5 years was much different, consisting of LOTS of parties, Lots of boyfriends, a few fiancés and LOTS of late nights! I don’t regret any of the parties or late nights. I can only imagine what the next 10 years will bring.

A New Addiction

I’ve got a new addiction – snarky t-shirts. My gateway was the elusive seach for a “Bitch is the New Black” t shirt a few months back. I came across some great finds and now get the email updates when new t’s are available. My new favorite site is http://www.palmercash.com/. Here’s an example – also what I rocked out in on Saturday night!
For those of you without super power reading ability AAAA stands for Anti-Acronym Association of America. It’s fantastic!

We had a very busy and fantastic weekend!
Friday night we went out for Amber’s Birthday and met everyone at Tapinazo’s for drinks and tapas, we couldn’t stay long for we were going to the theatre!!! Mike and I went to see STOMP at the WAC – it was really cool. Then we went to OPO to watch Maude Crawford. Cole and I attempted to dance, but my shoe choice for the evening was not made for twirling… and the attemted dancing lasted only one song.
Saturday afternoon I got new tires at Sam’s Club- WOW that was fun…
Saturday, Mike and I had a great dinner at Pesto Cafe then went out and met pretty much everyone we knew out on Dickson. I think a great time was had by EVERYONE! It was fabulous weather and fabulous company all around!
It definately put me in the mood for a great summer!

Sunday was craft day and SLEEP day – I made baby shower invitations for Melanie’s upcoming FABULOUS shower!

Don’t forget, Tuesday is Mike’s birthday!

one contact to top it off

So the past 36 hours haven’t been that great…

Last night I thought I would be nice and make dinner for Mike, he had a long day of, well doing nothing but still, I thought this would be a great idea. He wanted some turkey steak things we had in the freezer and some Rice-a-roni. I should mention I don’t really read directions and like to make things up as I go which could some day lead to my demise. Anyway, as I have mentioned before, me and Rice-a-roni don’t get along especially with the addition of vermicelli. So in typical fashion of not reading directions I proceeded to create a cheesy mush, I actually didn’t think it was that bad but clearly Mike disagreed. As for the turkey steak things – they can be broiled, so that’s what I thought I was doing, again – WRONG. Once I thought I had things partially under control I went to rest my weary legs and sit down – all of 3 minutes later, we found out the smoke detectors work – REALLY WELL! So after batting the smoke away from the detectors and establishing that nothing was salvageable, we headed to Taco Bell.
I promise I can cook and I really am pretty good at it!

So we move on into today… As I’m getting ready, running late like everyday… really at this point I don’t consider it running late – it’s what I do every day so not that its a pattern I’m just happy to leave on what used to be on time is now EARLY. Anyway, I was getting ready, put my left contact in and I sure thought I put my right contact in – but as the day went on, it was pretty obvious that the right contact in fact did not adhere to my face – boy was that a fun drive home!

There were other annoyances throughout the day, but that’s for another time!

Tonight did get better, got to see Amanda and Cole at Danielle’s house and I managed to make Mike some mac and cheese without burning it or under cooking it or anything! Yay, go me, baby steps…

In other news, Mike’s birthday is on week from Tuesday – on May 20th! Write that down!
