Not Me Monday-Weekend Edition

Mckmama- Not Me Monday

It was a fun, family filled weekend. Julio and Bethanie came to visit us for another semi long weekend. We all just had a great time. 

Friday night my Mom and brother, Will, came over. Will made a Chicken Curry that was one of the best I had ever had. I am already craving some more. We had a bit of wine and hung out on my porch for a pretty long evening that actually flew by. I did NOT drink more wine than I can remember in a very long time. Oh no! NOT ME!  I would not do such a thing!  I did not progressively talk louder with each glass of wine consumed, nope, again, NOT ME!  I especially did NOT drunk tweet some of the evening, nope, I would never do anything like that.

Saturday morning I woke up with a little bit of a headache for some strange reason. Haven't quite figured that one out, yet. Huh. Anyway, I was treated like a queen with Julio getting up and making the kids breakfast and bringing me breakfast in bed. Wow. I cannot tell you the last time someone brought me breakfast in bed. (I am NOT getting spoiled by this, oh no!)

We took the kids to the pool on Saturday and Sunday and really had a great time. 

One of the nicest things about taking the kids to the pool is that it slap wears them out. They came back and took a nice nap on Sunday afternoon. It allowed for a very relaxing afternoon for all of us. 

Julio then cooked dinner as well (again, I will say I am not getting spoiled, oh no, NOT ME!).  He made us a wonderful homemade spaghetti. It was loved by all.  The kids were all asleep and peaceful pretty early on Saturday night. It was, again, a nice treat! Hey, when you have 4 kids under the same roof it can get crazy!  All in all they get along quite well and allow for some really fun, family times.

Sunday was pretty much a repeat of Saturday, complete with pool, naps and early bedtimes. By Monday morning we were all pretty worn out from the weekend but really dreading our goodbyes.  A few more weeks and we'll all be together again, so I will just focus on that for now.

Now...if only we could work on that Georgia Bulldog fan thing that he has going on...any advice on how to deal with that?? Help me out here, folks!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to < target="_blank" href="">her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

They have these doormats that have one college team on one side and another college team on another and it says "a house divided".

I tried to find a Bulldog/Gamecock one but I couldn't.

Anyway, I'm glad you had a great weekend!



Mandy said...

aww...thanks for looking Kim! That would be awesome to have!

Jay said...

I think maybe you should both do something about this Gamecock and Bulldog fandom thing. Let's all just be Razorbacks fans, mmkay? LOL ;-)

I love making breakfast. I rarely do, but it's fun to cook. Aside from the headache, I'm glad you had fun. Cheers Mandy!!

It was one of the most amazing weekends of my life...a reminder of what is truly important...and one constant wonderful moment after another. I really lack the words to express what a truly magical time I had with you and the kids this week...all I can say is I can't wait till next month!
