Saturday morning I was up with the sun to get ready to head to Ardmore to see my mother, have a spa day with the girls and then a 40th birthday celebration for my very first BFF Carrie. My little sidekick decided that he was going to his Mimi’s too and packed up some of his things and ran to the car before I could say yes or no. Next thing I knew he was honking at me!!
It has been years since I have had a massage and I will just say that is way too long!! I felt like I was floating by the time I was done. Having a spa party is a must from now on,every birthday must be celebrated in this way! Tuesday was mine and my husband’s birthday…we are both born on Valentines day AND we were born in the same hospital one year apart, cool huh?. Jerome and I stayed up until 2 am that morning wrapping 50 potatoes, packing up the goodies, and then spent the rest of the day fixing and serving Kaytie’s Junior class baked potatoes and treats for lunch, then Cord’s class party, and then dinner with the family after that. I was very thankful that he was able to take time to go to Walmart and shop for me, then help all that morning, I couldn’t have done it without him!! By 8pm…I was feeling my age. So when the time came for me to spend Saturday at the spa with my friends from way back, well…I jumped on it!! Next year I am NOT helping with any parties…maybe.

Cord and I kept my Mom up until the wee hours of the morning talking…I hate that we sometimes go so long without seeing each other!! The ninety mile drive, and crazy schedules sometimes makes it hard for us to get together! Anyway, we left Sunday morning and as we pulled out of the drive Cord yells out “I love ya kiddo” which cracked us both up. We decided about 20 miles into our trek home to take a detour and do some scouting in Davis…and we used our indian names…Cordtacketto and Nataliescarletto, our horse(car) was bullseye and we had a blast. I was so glad it was so pretty outside so that we could really enjoy our day out. He fell asleep on the way home, so I think I wore him out walking everywhere.
I love going on little adventures…sometimes it might take me an extra hour or two to get home, but I always make it back. In fact…I once tried to turn a 10 hour drive to Denver into a 15 hour one by stopping and shooting cool stuff and taking detours, but at a stop just inside of Colorado my husband jumped in the driver seat and wouldn’t let me drive again…funhater haha!
Oh…I also got me some cool new bowls from my favorite gift store in Ardmore The Brown Paper Bag, Happy Birthday to ME! Since school started I make the big kids lunches almost every day, Cord’s is made every day with the exception of a few lunchable days and I always cut his sandwiches into shapes because he HATES the crust. So every month we find a new cutter to use, and this month I found this little frog cutter. He LOVE LOVE LOVED it!! Frog sandwiches for lunch in the morning…ewwwwww!!!
I loved the four day weekend…and instead of being ready for Tuesday I want another day to relax and enjoy my family. But, it is not happening!!
