weekend recap

This weekend was not one I was particularly looking forward to as I was registered to take a certification class alllllll day Saturday and from 8-3:30 today. Yuck, right? The good part was I got to see lots of my OT girls- we used to see each other every single day and since we started our fieldwork rotations last summer I haven't seen some of them in just shy of a year. Crazy! 

So, Friday night was date night with CSB. We started out browsing the sale racks at the Borders liquidation; I was a little bummed most books were only 20% off at this point. I will be returning as they get cheaper! It was only 5:30 when we finished and I was already starving a tad hungry but CSB relentlessly makes fun of me for liking to eat earlier than my 80 year old grandparents so I suggested we grab a drink and then do dinner. We headed to Jackson's before the crowd- I am obsessed with their Baptist Wedding Punch- delicious! (I learned it's just Key Lime liqueur and ginger ale- also easy to make at home!) It's not on the menu anymore but they still make it every time (which is once in a blue moon) we go.  We then headed to Taco Mamacitta's for dinner. There was a heck of a wait (I am just the slightest bit inpatient... And really hate waiting in a city there are so many good restaurants. It happens though, not complaining) but we grabbed margaritas and settled in at the bar with chips and queso. We both got our classic standbys and headed home early... Myself with the intentions of resting up for my class. 

Paisley puppy had other ideas... Sweet puppy Paise got spayed on Thursday (no puppies for my puppy!) and was still recovering. She was really out of it and stumbling around on Thursday but quite a bit better on Friday. She ate fine Friday morning and was still just groggy. Fast forward to 11:10 Friday night (I was definitely already asleep) I hear my poor pup puking. Yuck. I won't go into details but a few bed changes/crate cleans/carpet cleans and trips outside later, I finally went back to sleep around 4:30. 7:00 came early! While I was in class Saturday CSB took Paisley to the vet for a shot and they took her off pain meds and she has been perfectly fine since.

(Recovering Thursday night. On the bed, of course.)

(Notice the shaved leg? ha! They had to shave it to give her an IV. Guess that's what I get for having a fluffy puppy)

I won't bore you with the contents of my class Saturday. 

On Saturday night CSB and I headed to a friend of his, F's, 41st birthday celebration. And by celebration I mean food truck (delicious local grilled cheese!) parked on the side of the house, catering, a tent, multiple bars, and waitstaff all over the place. It was so nice! And F and his wife S are some of the absolute sweetest people I know. We hung out for a while and then headed downtown to meet one of my best friends for her little sister's birthday party. Love me some Cooper sisters! We called it early again and walked out to our car... THAT WASN'T THERE. As in, was towed. 15 extra minutes and $85 later we made it home. Thankfully the tow guy was super nice (it wasn't his fault CSB parked DIRECTLY in front of a "Kinko's employee parking only/Cars towed 24/7" sign) and took us to the lot on his way with another unfortunate downtown patron's car.

(Portrait at the entrance of the house. I cracked up. CSB didn't get it. Apparently he hasn't watched the news in the last 2 weeks)

Today was filled with more physical agent modality cramming and a 72 question exam I really hope I passed. 
And then a much deserved nap!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

So glad you found me, Elizabeth! I am SO behind on responding, but I found it at TJMaxx about a year ago. One of those awesome finds for under $50 for all of the bedding.
