This past weekend was of course too short but - was so happy to have a weekend home with no set plans! Here was Saturday morning....ahhhhh :) Lazy day! Something about a lazy Saturday morning on the couch with coffee, pj's and a snoozing Honeybee - love!
Saturday night we tried a new restaurant in Benton Park - right near our hood called Peacemaker - it is a lobster/seafood place where the old Niche used to be - it was SO good! We got lobster rolls with hushpuppies (not in the pic) and while it was a bit pricey - was really delish. Fun atmosphere and really amazing food - loved it, we will be back for sure!
After dinner we hung out at Erin & Alan's for awhile - had my first pumpkin beer of the season (a bit early i know!) and wow - this Imperial Pumpkin Smash from Crown Valley was super tasty. Erin and I may have been sneaking these behind the boys' backs as we didn't want to share :)
Cards Against Humanity ensued.... lots of laughing also. Had some of the best cards ever this night -ha!
So I downloaded the timehop app to my phone - it is kinda cool to see things you were up to or posting about one year/two years/five years ago.... Erin and I were laughing as apparently I posted on FB two years ago about my love of gingerbread iced hand soap - ummmm ok thanks I am sure FB-land really cared about that! This one from six years ago made me sad a little as holy wow - look how skinny I used to be - boooooo :( headed in that direction again but...day-um! Got a-ways to go yet!
And awwww - how cute - this was Chad and me back in the day - I remember this was his first night back after a six month deployment - and this was our first night out on the town together. Good times and good memories! We look so cute!!
Today was a good day at work - my boss gave me a new pullover hoodie with our logo on it - it is really warm and soft & has the awesome thumbholes that I love on shirts like this! Gotta love free swag. I was happy - not sure why my face looks so glum
Now time to hit the hay - i have not been sleeping really well the past week- I think all of the chaos in Ferguson has me stressed a little at night. It is such a terrible situation - my heart goes out to the families involved. It is also a shame all the people that are not protesting peacefully and are rioting/looting instead. I can't understand the thought process behind the anarchy & chaos - what positive strides can that behavior accomplish? I know it is a byproduct of frustration and anger but - makes me so very sad for the community there. Ferguson is only about 20 miles from us but - it is still very very close to home. I hope that all of this resolves soon although - it does not look promising. Last night I finally took something to help me sleep :( But for those people that are emailing and calling/texting - yes we are safe and not in danger. I always feel very safe with Chad near me and - very very happy he is not working nights anymore! I am hopeful that Ferguson finds peace very soon.
