Happy Monday! This is my last HAPPY Monday of the summer. Next Monday I will be back at work. But I will not complain because complaining about having 8 weeks off in the summer is really an asshole-ish thing to do!!
I am going to brag for a minute and say I slept for 10 1/2 hours before I woke up on Friday morning. I woke up when Christmas tried to pee on my pillow in efforts to get me to feed him. I'm not kidding. He can be an asshole if he really wants to be.
But because I love that little bugger, I went to the vet and bought him a 4lb bag of the dental food/treats he and Jelly love. I also got him the toothpaste he loves. Yes, we brush his teeth. Ever since he needed his teeth cleaned and one removed, we started to do preventative dental work at home.
A 4lb bag was $21. Christmas has me wrapped around his little paw...
2.5 oz of toothpaste... $11. Freaking-A this better last a long time.
I was reminded of this awesome gift two of my coworkers go me last year...
You would think that after dropping so much cash on the cats I'd reel in my spending. Nope. We had to go to Wal Mart for fire wood and MY FAVORITE SHORTS that used to be $7.96 were on clearance! I swiped up every last pair they had in my size, which turned out to be five pairs total. I do not regret the decision! And look at the fun colors!
Who needs Lulu when you can get DANSKIN for $5!!!???
And that was all the excitement we had on Friday!
The plan was to do 8 miles on Saturday morning, but I ended up doing 10!!!! I was so happy that it went well! I will post a lot more about this run on Tuesday, but for now, here is my victory pose...
That night, Bob and Rachel came over for fire pit night. We had tons of fun as usual. A lot of cheese was eaten and a lot of laughs were had!
I am really good at mixing drinks! If you ever come for a game night,
just consider me the bartender!
Rachel and Bob!
We were a little loud late into the night... I hope we didn't bother our neighbors!
Sunday was our anniversary! Paul and I met almost 10 years ago and we have been married for 7 years!
I got Paul a little bag of goodies.
He loves flags and he has been wanting a cheesy wolf shirt for awhile.
We have a weird sense of humor. Don't ask!
The "grand" present was tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld in Hershey! Paul was so surprised and happy! He said he even teared up a little.
11:00am and we're still in our jammies.
(My face didn't catch the light but it's actually a good thing because I look like shit in the morning!)
We did our own thing that afternoon, which means I had plenty of time to do a short run, lift at home, and then mow the lawn.
That evening, we went to see the movie Vacation. It was a silly/stupid/crude comedy but we were in the mood for that so we really enjoyed it. It starred Ed Helms and Christina Applegate- both of whom I enjoy watching. But if you are looking for a "smart" comedy this is not it! After the movie, we had dinner on the deck at Duke's. It is actually the same place we had our first date.
To say I indulged is an understatement! I had two drinks, a philly cheese steak egg roll, and a FRIED CHICKEN SALAD. Hmmmm how can you make a salad unhealthy? Put fried chicken and french fries on it!
Mmmm egg roll!
Then we walked around City Island, which is another place we went on our first date. Except on our first date we played mini golf there. I don't play mini golf anymore because I hate it. I am not good at it and somewhere around hole nine I start to get really bored and stop trying.
When we got home we capped off our special day by watching Big Brother in our jammies and eating leftover egg roll we didn't have room for at dinner. Mmmm... perfect!
I will leave you with this picture of Jelly. Whenever we bring boxes back from Aldi, we set one out for the cats to play in! See, they don't always have to be expensive!
What's the most expensive thing you buy/do for your pets?
Did you ever see any famous comedians perform?
Tell me something fun you did this weekend!
