Relaxing Weekend, Take Two

To say that it was a lowkey weekend would be an understatement but it was also exactly what I needed. Friday evening my girl spent the night with a good friend and they went skating the next day. She got home about 5:30pm on Saturday and Tonto took her to another friend's house after dinner. They were having so much fun she spent the night there again last night.

Do I miss her? Absolutely! But it's Spring Break and I'm at work (at least for a few days) and I know we'll have some quality time together later this week. I'm just thankful she has great friends with amazing parents. And that she's enjoying her time off. 

That being said, I'm very much looking forward to seeing her this evening!

The man and I took advantage of the alone time on Friday and had dinner at Wing Stop. I always forget about that place but I absolutely love wings. It was also a good diversion to the Baylor/Kansas men's game. We were nervous wrecks. But our guys pulled it out and rock chalked those stinkin' Jayhawks! :-)

This was also Tonto's weekend to work so the pups and I hung out on Saturday after I did Zumba and then I cleaned house. Like, even wiped down the ceiling fans. Why? Because I had a lot of nervous energy as the Lady Bears were playing A&M for the Big 12 Tournament Championship. They won - in dominating fashion - but I always clean when a Baylor team is on television. 

The pups and I celebrated and sang along with the championship songs and watched the ladies cut down another net. It reminded me of being there when they won the regular season championship and my girl was dancing in the confetti while my parents and I watched on. Good. Times.

Saturday evening brought our men playing Missouri. I don't want to talk about it much except to say that if you don't believe abhorrent officiating can cost a team a game, just go watch a replay of this game. It was pathetic. And our guys deserved better.

Sunday morning I headed to church and then the grocery store. While there, Tonto called and asked me to pick up their takeout order from Chuy's as they had a surprise delivery and couldn't leave. So I did (and their food smelled delightful) and then I found myself surrounded by sweet babies, quickly became overwhelmed and barely made it back to my car before full out sobbing.

Yesterday's date was significant but I don't really want to go into it right now. Just want to say that yesterday was bad but His mercies are new every morning. And for that, I'm incredibly thankful.

Also very thankful to have an awesome man who knew I was struggling and came home with this...

He knows me well :-)

I did make it back to the store and even managed to get the girl a swimsuit (they always sell out so quickly in her size - it's tough to find one long enough for her!), get everything on the list and get dinner in the crockpot before watching some basketball with the pups.

Then we watched the selection show where we learned our Bears were not exactly given an easy bracket but they were rewarded with a 3 seed and play on Thursday. Sic 'em!

While at the store I found this...

...and, yes, it's as delightful as it looks!

This was one of my favorite pics of the weekend - Priss does this all the time. Sometimes you just have to pick yourself back up a little at a time. Seems there's a lesson in there somewhere... :-)

Happy Monday, y'all! Keep your fingers crossed the Lady Bears are rewarded with great bracket placement tonight and have an amazing day :-)
