And here it is Monday, a day late on posting.. and I am tired. Oh so tired.
Because our weekend was JAM packed. Much to my surprise.
Friday was pretty much a HUGE deal. It was my first evening out without the baby AND my husband since little miss made her debut. Which I was excited, maybe a bit guilty and above all else - ready.
A little over a year ago, my cousin (who at the time was in the Navy, stationed here at Fort Gordon) and I created a military spouse page on Facebook with the sole purpose of organizing get togethers for local spouses. I personally have met some great people and Friday was another successful Gordon Gals evening.
My friend Rachel hosted a Murder Mystery Party for the group. Thirteen lovely military spouses came out to get into character. I've never been to one of these parties.. and it was super fun. But I had a horrible time staying in my character as a medium. Regardless, it was great. (Rachel found her scripts on the internet and tweaked them just a bit.. she did awesome!)
HELLO-Summer Bucket List-Check mark.
The rodeo itself was kind of disappointing. As in - half the riders didn't even qualify because more than likely it was their absolute first time in the ring. You gotta start somewhere though. And Abby had never even been to the rodeo (which we will forgive her, because she is from the Boston area... where apparently they don't do rodeos..), so it was fun to show her the ropes. Literally. Haha.
After a fun car ride, we got ice cream and called it a night. A perfectly random, fun night.
Then we had more company, in the form of Grace's great-grandparents. They brought over chicken, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and rice. We fired up the grill for some BBQ chicken and watched the crazy USA soccer game. (Crazy.. did anyone else see it?!)
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend as well!
