How was your weekend?

Not much exciting going on this weekend at our house.

Xander had soccer out of town on Saturday and in town on Sunday but he couldn't play on Sunday due to a stomach bug.

This week is the start of our Indiana standardized testing (ISTEP) so I decided to get me some candy to keep in my pocket to keep me entertained during the test. I will be in a computer lab Monday - NEXT Tuesday 8:30-2:45 monitoring testing. Because of this I figured I might as well eat some candy. I was craving Runts bananas last week so that explains those, the Gobstoppers are just an old fav.

We did some shopping this weekend and, of course, being the mom means that I didn't get much for myself. I did get this awesome pack of erasers to help fill my students appetite for erasers, haha.  Winner winner chicken dinner!

I spent most of my time on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday catching up on laundry from last weekend while we were away.

On a good note, I got to start making our Disney dining reservations for our trip to Disney World on fall break. We have decided to do a "best of" restaurant theme this time. I chose 1 new restaurant and the kids told me their favorites and we are eating at those. These include O'Hana, Chef Mickey, ESPN, Whispering Canyon, and Coral Reef. I am so excited. My phone says we have 175 days left!!

Friday was our big excitement. We had Xander's 13th birthday party in Buffalo Wild Wing's party room. If you have a BWW in your area I highly recommend this room. We have had parties here before, the best part about it is that it is free to use this room, you only pay for any food/drinks you order. There are several big screen TV's in there to watch. We took 2 of our PS3's and hooked them up so the kids could play video games with each other. Being an awesome parent means that I didn't bother the kids with an abundant of pics (meaning NONE) but oh well we had fun and that's all that matters :)

Sadly, Eve's hermit crab died. Unfortunately for Mr. Krabs, no tears were shed in this house. R.I.P. Mr. Krabs, you probably won't be missed!

How did you spend your weekend?

  1. What a good idea about a birthday party at BWW. I'm not sure if ours has a private room though. I'm jealous of your fall Disney trip! O'hauna was one of my favorites, we didn't make it to Chef Mickeys but plan to next time. We are planning a trip for 2014 but doing the cruise. Have you ever been?! Sorry to hear about Mr. hermit crab:(

    1. We did Chef Mickey dinner last time and it was fun. This time we are doing breakfast.

      Never been on one of their cruises. Everytime I price them they are out of my price range :( Maybe someday.

  2. I found your blog on the Collective and just started following on GFC. I had to smile when I saw the Everlasting Gobstoppers. I used to love them growing up!

    1. I ate so much candy today that I now have a headache from all of the sugar. I guess it was a bad idea, but they taste so good and were only $1 per box.

      Welcome to the crazy daisy.
