While I Was Gone...

So in the hopes of not losing my mind (and I do mean that quite literally), I took off this past weekend. I went up and visited a friend in the Sacramento area for an overnight visit.

The 2 hour drive up was very relaxing as I didn't have anyone in the backseat smacking anyone in the head or calling anyone a "big stupid dummy head." Just me, my big ole' truck and 2 country stations... yes I am a hick, And dern proud of it lol. It's funny though since I was raised in Northern California nearly my whole life, but I'm as country as they come.

Saturday night, we did a little pre-dinner shopping because I sort of forgot to bring a few things, you know like PJ's, deodarant, toothpaste and toothbrush. I did manage to remember the important things... the laptop and camera. I purposely didn't bring an extra t-shirt because I had planned on getting a few new ones that actually fit from Target.

We ate dinner at Macaroni Grill.. we both had the Create your own Pasta bowls and split a plate of Brushetta. I had a Midori Sour, yummmmy! There was a tiny mix up with the type of meat my friend had ordered in her dinner, even though it was correct just because she thought otherwise, they bought us dessert. So we ended up splitting this insanely huge and chocolatey piece of goo they referred to as cake. It was good.. we both had about 3 bites each before we decided one more and we would be saying hello to our dinner again.

We attempted to hit up the Jackson Rancheria (Indian Casino), the only thing we succeeded in there was getting parking and finding a restroom. It was INSANLEY crowded. No available machines and so many people walking around it was like a cattle drive. So, then we decided to call it a night and headed home.

Sunday, we had planned on going to the Farmer's Market in El Dorado Hills... that didn't happen either. My friend dyed my hair for me instead and apparently, I don't just have a few gray hairs.

After we both showered and got dressed, we headed out for some lunch at Mimi's Cafe. Hit a few shops, nothing major... I needed a new pair of flips because the sandals I had been walking around in gave me a few blisters... I've had and been wearing the shoes for over a year and NOW I get a blister. Go figure.

We were going to do her son's 2 yr portraits but little man got a bit crabby and fell asleep in the car, so that didn't happen either. Once we got back to the house, it was getting late and I needed to head out. I wanted to stop on the way home and get a haircut. My hair is so overgrown on top and it was bugging me to no end. I like it much better now, I had her thin it out and layer the top so my curls *could* come out and play. Literally, I was back on the road in 10 minutes lol.

I got home around 6... what did I find? Well, surprisingly enough the house was not in shambles.... however my youngest son does not have any eyebrows. I'll have to get a pic of that later on.

More shopping....

Last week, I applied and got approved for a Target Visa. Well, ok.. DH got approved but it's *my* card. I had decided that now I can get all the home furnishings and such that I wanted to get 2 years ago when we first moved in here.. I'm just going to do it a little bit at a time. So I went on to Target last night to start making my wishlist. I wanted to get some really cute Dinosaur bedding for my 2 youngest boys and so when I logged on last night, I found that Target has a twin size Dinoland bed in a bag on sale... 75% off!!!!! So, I snagged 2 sets at 14.99 a piece.. how great of a deal is that?? The bag set comes with fitted sheet, flat sheet, pillowcase, bedskirt, pillowsham, and comforter. Here's a pic...

Isn't that super cute?? I thought so :o)

That's all I've got for you for now, be sure to check back tomorrow and thanks for reading!!
