April came into town, which means we tried to squeeze as much fun into every second of the weekend as possible.
Friday after work, we ventured downtown to the Lobster Races. Yep. We race lobsters here in Aiken. I was pretty excited – it was my first time going!
|All of the kids got their faces painted…and then wiped it off within a matter of minutes…|
This mommy/daughter duo trio was SO intense.
|April and me!|
On Saturday, we went to see the new Avengers movie and it did not disappoint. It was funny, action packed, and full of eye candy. Definitely worth venturing to the theater. I kind of want to go see it again. Afterwards, we went back to Shonn and Gena’s house for dinner, margaritas, and a backyard volleyball tournament.
On Sunday, Mike had to work an outdoor country festival on the Savannah river. So I stayed home and painted the rocking chairs for the front porch. I also finally hung up our magical iron/ironing board storage thing. So now the ironing board isn’t just propped up against the wall. I’m all…Rosie the Riveter with my power tools, you know. =)
Also, I’ve found myself deliberately not following a new blog if I see a post where they’ve positively reviewed 50 Shades of Grey. I really need to get over that book. I know people are allowed to like it, I just really want people to dislike it the same way I do. Not to mention I just downloaded the 2nd book in the trilogy because apparently I have LITERALLY NO WILL POWER. I don’t know what it was about the first book that rubbed me the wrong way. I am so weird.
Also – I lost 6 lbs last week on Weight Watchers. And this weekend, I gained 5 lbs on Margaritas and my general “family is in town let’s pig out” mentality. So there’s that.
