Friday evening couldn’t come fast enough for me. My new iPhone had arrived and was screaming at me to be used! I spent the evening impatiently waiting for everything to be copied over from my old phone. Of course we are talking about a couple of hours – but it felt like forever. Then she was complete. She is beautiful. Still testing her out, but so far, nothing but happiness.
Saturday, as usual, started out lazy. Colton and I watched Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 – and I cried like a baby AGAIN! That movie couldn’t have ended more perfect in my opinion. Love it. Then around noon, Ash started harassing me to put some Halloween decorations out. So we set to it. We started off with a plain old mantle.
And with a few Dollar Store items and a branch from the yard (which I spray painted silver), I think it turned out quite cute.
The most important thing is that both kids love it. They had fun helping me get it all together too. Ashley cannot wait to start decorating outside too, but I told her maybe next weekend.
On Sunday, I decided that Ash and I needed a mother/daughter date, so we headed out to get pedicures. There was a half hour wait at the salon, so we hit up Noodles & Company for lunch. I had my usual Japanese Pan Noodles with Chicken and Ash got her Meatball Marinara Sandwich with a side Caesar Salad. How she doesn’t like pasta is beyond me!
We chatted about school, clothes, Halloween costumes and of course boys. I can’t express in words what a amazing feeling it is to see that little girl of mine blossoming into a young lady. She loves getting pampered – just like her mom. She sits in the massage chair like a pro – ITouch in hand, playing games and listening to music. We finished with just enough time to rush over to the football fields to catch Colton’s game. It was a beautiful fall day, even though it was windy and chilly.
Happy to report that Demolition won their game again – making them undefeated so far with three wins. Colton scored the first touchdown of the game too. I was one proud momma! After the game, Colton had a baseball clinic to go to, so Ash and I went to visit with Grandma and Grandpa.
And there you have it friends – a perfect fall weekend.
