i have lots of excuses for not blogging last week.
i really was super busy.
but i still probably had time to write a post or two.
the truth is, i started reading a book series and
i spent all my free time trying to get through the next chapter.
i even talked brette into reading to herself for story-time
so we could both read.
worked like a charm.
if you like divergent or the hunger games,
you'll probably like these too.
the first book is called Red Queen and the second
is Glass Sword, but unfortunately book three and four
don't come out for another YEAR.
so now i hate life and i'm stuck waiting,
which means i'm back to blogging.
let's recap last week.
saturday ronnie and i took the girls to the
st. patty's day parade in lee's summit and then
i stayed back for the pub crawl.
ronnie took one for the team and spent the rest of the
day with the girls, while i was out with all my
friends from the bank.
so. much. fun.
too. much. beer.
there are a lot of pictures like this:
sunday was a recovery day.
ronnie was out shopping for fishing crap and took brette with him.
i stayed back with reid and debated how cheeseburgers i should eat.
cale sent me a pic of ronnie and b while they were out shopping.
i guess this place had a ferris wheel inside.
and brette loved the fishing poles.
she's her daddy's girl.
monday i worked and then we had our weekly family dinner.
tuesday my college roomie, marge, came into town so
i invited dana, kass and shannon to hang out with us for the day.
the kids played.
the mom's took care of the babies.
and we tried not to eat too much chinese food.
shan, marge and i had to get a roomie picture with our new girls.
we've all had baby girls this year.
marge spent the night so wednesday we got
up and spent the morning with shannon.
after marge left wednesday afternoon
i finally got around to doing laundry and cleaning.
hanging out with friends is so much better.
thursday i spent my whole day running errands.
literally hauled both girls to six different places.
it sucked but it needed to be done.
here is brette at target "nursing" my wallet.
it was so weird i had to take a picture.
thursday night we had a small sprinkle for baby wilders on the plaza.
dana is adding a third little chick to her crew.
i can't wait to meet this little boy.
if he's anything like her other two
he'll have plenty of hair and be completely adorable.
friday i worked and ronnie left for his annual trout fishing trip
so the girls in my family decided to get together for a little dinner.
my mom, my aunt, my cousin and her daughter all came over.
we ordered in food and played some games after i put my girls to bed.
it was a nice way to spend the evening instead of hanging out by myself.
saturday i worked so my mom watched the girls for part of the morning and
then kassie came over and watched them the other
half since her husband was gone with ronnie on the fishing trip.
she hung out all day while the boys sent us pictures from their trip.
they took a selfie stick with them, so
i thought the pictures were hilarious.
three men and their selfie stick.
(and no, ronnie had no clue what that was)
and now here it is - - sunday.
we just did a lot of lounging and hanging on ronnie.
it was nice to have him back.
he brought brette a little fishing rod home so
i think a few afternoons at the lake are in my future.
and we managed to make it out of the house to run up the road
to buy a new sofa sleeper for our front room...
coming this april.
i'm excited to move my old college couch back down to the basement.
my whole busy week.
can you believe i managed to read two books too?!
so now you know why i had no time for this ol' blog.
have a great week!
