weekend shenanigans

this weekend absolutely flew by.

last week was pretty rough for me, and i'm so glad it's over! i'm done with my first semester of grad classes {go me!} and now i just have 2 undergrad classes. i graduate in a little over a month! yay!

i got to celebrate the end of my horrible week by going to see the hunger games with friends.

let me tell you...i'm obsessed. i read all 3 books in 3 days. i would stay up until the wee hours of the morning reading.

i got all of my friends hooked on the books, too. we were all SO excited for the movie. we bought our tickets well in advance, and made a girls date for the premiere night. we had dinner and drinks, and then went to the movie!

it was packed. we had to stand in line to get in. we did get to sit together, so that was a plus!

the movie was good. i hyped it up a lot because i was so excited, so it didn't exactly live up to my expectations. but it was still good and i'd definitely go {and probably will} see it again!

saturday morning we had plans to go to a birthday party. it was about an hour away, so we hitched a ride with mary and gavin who were also going.

addison loves gavin. and he's at the age where he can play with her now. he took a little while to warm up to the fact that another kid was in the car with him, but once he did warm up, they chatted and laughed the rest of the way.

the party was outside, and it ended up being a chilly, rainy morning. being the great mom that i am, i didn't bring addison a jacket because i thought it would be warm. she was a little cold, but she warmed up when she ran around. the kids had lots of fun! and they got cute dinosaur masks.

we had lunch and then ran by mary's in laws, then headed home. we were all exhausted, especially the kiddos. gavin passed out pretty much as soon as we headed home, but it took addison a while to give in and sleep. but once she did, she was out.

saturday night, my mom and i had a girls night at mexican. it's kind of sad that they know us there.

one of the manager's saw us and asked if i had seen the pictures of my daughter on the wall. i was really confused at first, but then remembered that the balloon lady had taken pictures of the kids with their balloons to put on the wall. addison had her picture up there twice. we may need an intervention.

sunday i went to breakfast with family and then did some group stuff for school. and then i made a bazillion cake pops.

our weekend wasn't exactly relaxing, but it was a lot of fun! we were busy pretty much every second. needless to say, i'm still exhausted. and i don't see that going away any time soon.

more coffee, please!
