What did you do Memorial Day weekend? I know quite a few people that headed up to the New England area to spend the long weekend, us included.
The week started off with a Monday night dinner at the Oxenburg’s – Amanda and I both missed a bridal shower that we were invited to last month so we decided to get together with the bride to be and have a home cooked meal…Amanda prepped the lasagna the night before so all she had to do was pop it in the oven and wait for everyone to arrive! She’s become quite domestic since she’s gotten married! ;)
I had a buy one get one free code for Moe’s…home of the Coke Freestyle machine! So on Friday before our long weekend I went out to lunch with some coworkers. Chicken burrito for me…tacos for them. I think I like this place better than Chipotle!
Since Friday was an early day for me I had time to do a set of my own gels at home. I knew a manicure wouldn’t last me through the long weekend and I didn’t want to bring a bottle of polish with me for touchups so gels were the way to go. Glitter included!
We spent Saturday and Sunday in Cape Cod on a family trip. After heading out to dinner at which I didn’t take ANY pictures because I forgot my camera at the hotel…the adults hung out and did adult things and got ready for bed while the kids hung out for a little while doing…uhh..kid things? The boys had to be up at 3AM to prep for their fishing trip so it was a relatively early night for all.
My pj’s for the weekend:
The boy packed lucky boxers in hopes that it would lead to a good fishing trip! And it worked! Everyone went home with coolers packed with fish! I *puffy heart* seabass
Since we wanted to get back home as quickly as possible on Sunday, we decided to skip a real lunch and just stop by the 7eleven in town to pick up some snacks for the road. Corn dog and a cheese stick for me and a sandwich for the boy. And one can’t go to 7eleven and not get a slurpee, right?! We even had our own slurpee bartender mixing it up for us!
When we got home we came back to find Milo with this on his back and tufts of fur all over the floor. This was the first time he’s been left alone without humans or another cat around over night so we think stress might have caused it…
Slightly panicked, we called the vet the next morning and made an appointment…he said it was an allergy…to what, no one knows. A shot, a bottle of pills and $120 later we were all back home. How one feeds a cat pills is beyond my comprehension…but I guess we’ll find out tonight. Side note: the turkey gained over a pound since his last visit in Jan! Thats 20.6 lbs of cat hiding between the boy’s legs!
We must have brought home at least 30 fish from this weekend’s trip! I decided to try to cook one up for dinner last night Chinese style…it came out pretty good for a first time try! I probably could have stopped cooking it a few minutes earlier…it was a little overdone and the oil that I put over it could have been a little hotter. At least we have plenty more for me to practice on!
