Weekend Wrap-Up

Worn to work Friday, July 22



Friday was a very long day...
Driving to camp drop-off, the sky was dark...on the verge of storming.  I got to my office right before the big storm hit...
I had to sit in the car for 1/2 hour waiting for the downpour to stop...

About noon, I got a call from hubs that the power is out in the house...the storm knocked down a power line by our house.  Com Ed said they should have the electricity up by 7pm.  But, by 3pm, without air conditioning the house had reached a balmy 91 degrees...ahhhh...so glad i was at work with the air conditioning on high...plus the basement was flooding! Then hubs calls, he was on his way to the urgent care center...he stepped on an nail and had to go get a tetanus shot.  He had to go buy a cane yesterday because he is having trouble walking...Then, Friday night, Jack had his final game and awards ceremony.  Nothing like watching a t-ball game in the 90 degree heat... He was very proud of his medal...



On Sunday, I went to brunch with my friend Missy.
 As I took this photos, Alex proceeded to lean against the gate and fall backwards into the mud...he was not very happy!

I was so excited to see my friend Missy today.  We have been friends for about ten years.  She is the kind of friend that you can go without talking to for a year and then pick up like not time has gone by.  I was on the phone with her the day I had my first date with hubs...I talked to her for hours as I went from store to store trying on clothes to wear to dinner.  Our first "over night" date was a St. Patrick's day pub crawl organized by her.  She stood up at my wedding and was there after my boys were born.  Now she is pregnant,  i am so happy for her, I cannot even express my joy!

Hope everyone is having a very relaxing weekend!

Catching up with longtime friends is the best! I did the very same thing this week--it's great to have friends you can just pick up with no matter how long it's been since you've talked. And I love that animal print top--it makes a t-shirt so much more fun!

I hate days like Friday! Our power was out for a couple hours, but it went out at 4pm. When it was nice and sunny. Go figure. Hope yours wasn't out too long. And yay for sunday brunch!

I really like your Friday outfit! That shade of green looks great on you!

Your coral nailpolish is so pretty! I have a friend just like that. We live on separate sides of the country but when we see each other it's like no time has passed at all.

You look great in both pics. I love the orange handbag though;)
Man, when I lived in Florida I remember hating having to drive in the rain...

Many Layers Monday

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your little boy is so cute. And love that rainy picture! I'm a winter girl, so this summer heat has me cranky and wishing for rain. ; )
