More of the Weekend

So at the end of the lovely street with the red leafed trees, there was a Honda dealership.  I suggested that we stop by to look because

1.  we are never in the area of that particular dealership (with a huge inventory)
2.  we are never in the area without children

And so we stopped.  And found a perfect 2007 Pilot...one owner...not too terrible on miles...and the payment would be almost $200 lower a month than the van.

Sold.

I mean, it wasn't quite that easy, but it kind of was.  We looked.  We talked to someone.  We went home.  We looked a few things up, got a few opinions, discussed.  And then went back up there...test drove a few vehicles, made decisions, signed a billion papers, and then went to On the Border for a celebratory dinner.  At 9:30pm.

I had the avocado fries and a skinny margarita.  Kind of like ordering a diet coke with mcdonald's, I think.  But oh so good.

When we pulled into the driveway we realized that we did not have a garage door opener with us.  Or house keys.

I'm not gonna lie.  That kind of sucked.

We drove the twenty minutes to Chris's parents' house to get a key and then the twenty minutes home and I think we were both ready to collapse.

Saturday I went to the bead show with my bead show partner, Erin, and her mother (also my friend), Omie.  We had such fun!  I can't wait for you to see all of the fantastic things that I bought at the show.  I want to stay home all week and play with beads.

And then had lunch at Mellow Mushroom.  Hooray!  I had the avocado hoagie.  {Are you noticing a pattern???}

********

Chris ran some errands in Athens (aka, went to the growler) and brought home Inoko (hibachi) for dinner.  We caught up on some Jimmy Fallon.  I love him.  Just in case you were wondering about that.  Now you know...and you don't have to wonder any more.

I am so jealous of your childless weekend. I mean, you got to eat what you wanted and drink and be merry and all that stuff. Ugh. Will Mimi take my kids too?
