First of all, thanks to everyone who sent cards or called me or facebooked and all around made me feel special on my birthday-love you all!
So, my mom came for the weekend and we had a fabulous time! she got here on friday night and we went to blockbuster and rented girly movies. (justin was out of town it saturday noon-ish) we watched because i said so on friday night and then stayed up talking til almost one. i also opened my presents right away. i got steel magnolias from aaron (one of the best movies EVER), some awesome framed pictures of me and dakota and creyton from adam and abbe, some cute soaps and a magnet and money! from grandma and grandpa. mom and dad got me my water shoes and helped pitch in for my new kitchen knives, which i'm super excited about!
saturday we got up early-for a saturday at least-and on our way to the farmer's market we decided to stop and tour the library. stop laughing our library rocks and we both like them. then we went to the farmer's market and loaded up on fruit and veggies. we took riley to the dog park but it was so hot we didn't stay long. we picked justin up from the airport around noon. he was really tired because they played in nebraska in the middle of nowhere and had to do alot of traveling to get to the venue. in the afternoon mom and i did some shopping. yay for her being here during the tax free weekend! we went to cumberland transit and got some tevas for her and water shoes for me, then to fabu (a cute little botique), and the steve and barry's to check out sarah jessica parker's new line. side note: can i just tell you, this is the 3rd time i've shopped her new line and i LOVE it. the clothes and cute and cheap. that's her slogan "fashion is not a luxury". ANYWAY...saturday night we were all tired out so after a wonderful dinner of lamb-burgers (that's right lamb, i got it at the farmer's market and it was really good) and squash we watched the devil wears prada.
sunday we decided not to go to church, so we got up later and just hung around. mom and i went to bed bath and beyond to pick out my knives. they are WAY more expensive than i realized, but we had a really nice and very knowledgable man helping us. mom also came with me to run some errands like walgrens etc. we went to baja burrito to get las paletas (mexican gormet popsicles) which are amazing. both got pineapple kiwi and because of a mix up mom got a lime one for free! that night we all went to stoney river legendary steaks! for dinner. and the waiter gave mom a really funny look when he realized she wanted her sweet potato as her entree at a steak place. it was wonderful and i ate way too much. then we came back home and had our cheesecake from the cheesecake factory we had picked up earlier that day.
monday i had to go to work, so mom and justin came to get the tour and meet my co-workers. mom's plane left at noon, so justin took her to the airport. i had a great weekend!
