Shopping

After work, I drove to Robinson to meet my mom at Old Navy. I had some money on my gift cards and she had a credit she needed to spend. I wanted to pick up a pair of Pixie pants. They are so cute and the perfect pair of dress pants, skinny-legged, and they come up at the ankle a little.

Once the offer letter comes through for this new opportunity, which I know it will once my background check clears, I will need some new outfits. The dress code in the office is business professional and jean days on Fridays!

After Old Navy, we met up with my dad at Max and Erma’s. I haven’t been there in forever and the menu has really slipped down. It is a shame, they have such good food there.

After dinner, I went home to my husband and showed him my new outfit and he liked it. I got a pair of pixie pants and a top. He had to work from home a little bit this evening. I gave him the rest of my burger that I brought home from the restaurant. Then I took my clothes upstairs and put them in the closet. I was slowly getting ready.

Sunday, Drew’s Parents for Dinner

This morning, we took it easy. We drank some coffee and watched Smallville. We are on season 3 now, Clark meets Lois for the first time. I am such a sucker for Superman, especially Tom Welling. After Smallville, we got ready and went to the gym. I was going to try to get a really good work out in and run again. I am really trying to get back into it, without thinking about it too much.
The gym was a bit packed, I wasn’t sure how long I was going to stay, but whatever. I went to it. I got on a treadmill started out at a 3.5 speed on a 3.5 incline for about 10 mins, then I turned the incline down to 0.0 and increased the speed to 4.5 and started to run for at least 4 mins. I used to be able to run for 7 mins, but it’s not happening as of late. I can’t wait to get back to that. I did another walking session back at 3.5 speed and a 3.5 incline and walked for 10 mins, before kicking it back up again and running again. I did this for about 30 mins, and then I got off the treadmill. I used to do an hour of cardio, but I have been talking to a few people and they said, that all you need is at least 20-30 mins of cardio anymore than that is ridiculous.
After the treadmill, I did some weights. I did the lat machine three sets of 20. I was sore the last time I did this, and I like that feeling. After the lat machine, I did the hip abductor. I looked over and saw Drew in the weight room lifting weights, he looks so in his zone. I am struggling so bad getting back into this.
After the strength training machines, I went home to get a shower and get ready to go to his parents. I put on some comfy beach pants that I got at Old Navy. I am so in love with that store. I paired the striped blue and white pants with a white tank top. I was just going comfy. When Drew got home, he got showed and then we were on our way to his parents.
When we arrived, his dad was already cooking on the grill and the dinner was almost ready. It has been a while since we were over there for dinner. His dad made steaks, potatoes, hot dogs, hamburgers, salad, some cheese spread with cut up pastrami over peppers, baked potatoes, and sweet potatoes. I was ready for a steak. I was so sick of hamburgers and hot dogs. We talked about work, school, grandma, Tommy and Megan’s new dog waffles; I can’t wait to meet him. For dessert, we sang happy birthday and had cake, chocolate covered pretzels, and because they know I am not a fan of chocolate cake they bought me a piece of vanilla cheesecake. I am so hormonal and thanked them for the cheesecake, but told them I am going to have a small piece of cake today.
After cake, Drew opened the gift he got Bose wireless headphones. We are not too sure what happened to his other headphones. The cake was so good. It had pieces of chocolate chips in it, so yummy. I got up and went into the living room and laid on the couch. I was so full. I ended up falling asleep.
While I napped, Drew helped his mom set up her Fitbit. We gave her his old one. After he finished setting it up, Drew came over and kissed my cheek to wake me up. He is so sweet. He said, “Want to go soon?” I said, “Okay.” I smiled and got up from the couch. His mom packed us up at a doggie bag to take home. I love when they do that, because it is helpful to us. The leftover food will help with his lunches and dinners for a couple of days. It seems like Drew had a great birthday weekend, now to get home and start a new week again.

Hair Appt/Deadpool 2

This morning, I got up around 7:15am and got a shower. I got dressed and went downstairs. I made some coffee and ate some cereal. My mom got up and had some coffee with me. My dad was already downstairs in the living room sitting in his chair with the dogs. Things were already back to normal. I missed my husband. I am glad I get to see him today.

When I arrived at the salon, Kim was there and she was the only one there. It is always nice when she is the only one there and not the other ladies. I can’t stand the drama that this place produces. I told Kim I wanted to do the same thing with my hair, darker at the roots and light at the ends. I love the dark rooty look. When she put my color on, she asked all about the trip to Europe, and what it was like. We talked about the protesters and all that is happening in Pittsburgh. She kind of feels the same way I do.
After she dried my hair and styled it, I was out the door. I drove home. When I walked in, I had another cup of coffee and then started packing up my stuff. It was going to rain soon, and I wanted to get the car packed up before the rain hit, but that was going to happen.
My dad helped me load up my car, in between breaks in the rain. I could already feel it was going to be an off day. Drew was going to the chiropractor and was home by the time I walked in the door. When I walked into our house, he had just finished vacuuming and mostly everything was in its place. I was so glad to be home. Drew gave me the biggest hug and kiss. He missed me so much. It was nice to kind of step back and miss each other for a bit. It reminded me of when were dating, only seeing each other on the weekends.
After we brought my stuff inside, I made us avocado egg wraps with bacon. It is my new specialty. The weather was too terrible to go to the pool, so we just did housework and cleaned all day.
After breakfast, I went to Old Navy for the $1 flip flop sale.  I ended up leaving my phone in the car by accident (I swear). They were having a huge summer sale. I did buy 6 pairs of flip flops, 2 pair of comfy beach pants (one pair is green and the other is a blue and white stripe), a top, and a pair of PJ pants. I know I was only supposed to buy flip flops, but I hope this was okay.
When I got home, he was getting ready to go to the store. I told him how much I spent at Old Navy and he was okay with it, but that was it for a while. I understood. I only spent $68.00. I asked if he wanted me to go to the store with him. He said if I wanted to, but I didn’t have to. I put my old navy bag in the house and then got in the car with him. I hadn’t seen him in a while, and was looking forward to getting out, even if it was to the store. I didn’t want to be inside all day.
After the grocery store, we went home and unloaded the groceries and then we went to the mall. He wanted to stop in at LensCrafters to inquire about glasses. He wants a new pair of Sunglasses and eliminates his Ray Bans. I wasn’t sure how I felt about that. I am so used to his Raybans. He tried on Oakley’s and Raybans. He wants something different, but I only like a few of them. I am a sucker for the classic black frame and black lens sunglasses look. Something simple and chic is what I like.
After lens crafters, we went to the Cadillac Ranch for a drink. He dropped me off at the front. I took a seat at the bar. I was going to sit outside, but I opted for inside instead. The bartender approached me and smiled. I smiled back, just trying to be friendly. I said, “Don’t worry I am not going to drink by myself.” he said, “I am not judging” and laughed a little.  I said, “Mama said, you never sit at a bar by yourself and drink.” He laughed again and asked me what he can get me? I smiled and said, “Vodka tonic, please.” he said, “what kind of vodka.” I said, “Anything but Smirnoff.” He laughed. I said, “Smirnoff and sunny D have terrible memories for me.” He laughed and so did another bartender, and she said, “Girl it was anything peach for me. I can’t drink anything peach to this day.” I laughed. He looked at me and said, “Goose? Stoli?” I said, “Goose, please.” He set the drink on the counter and I said, “Thank you, Sir.” He smiled and said, “Don’t call me Sir. You can call me Zach.” I smiled and said, “Thanks, Zach.”
Finally, Drew walked in and took a seat next to me. I said, “Hey babe, meet Zach our bartender.” He looked up at Zach and said, “Hey man.” He said, “Hey, what can I get you?” Drew said, “Crown on the rocks please.” There we were drinking together at a bar. Something we hadn’t done in so long. We told Zach we were going to see Dead Pool 2. He said, “You will love it. It is better than the first.” We were pretty excited to see it.
After our drink, we cashed out, said bye to Zach, and headed to the movie theater. It wasn’t all that packed. We have been prebuying our tickets lately with the reserved seating, so after we got our popcorn and drink, we walked up to the usher stand and he scanned our tickets.
On our way to the theater room, I passed the Halloween movie poster. I was so excited for that movie to come out. I wanted to take a selfie with the poster, perhaps on the way out, when we leave. We walked into the theater room, and found our seats and got settled.
After the movie started, a random strange couple took a seat next to us, but they turned out to be in the wrong seat. Theresa my friend, who works at Cinemark told them they were in the wrong seat and had to move. Their seats were in the very front row in, in row A, not row D. When the couple left, another couple took their seats next to us. The movie was alright, sure it had its funny parts, but I liked the first one better. The best is the opening credits. They aren’t your traditional opening credits. Typically opening  credits read “Executive Producer:: then the persona’s name.” Well in Dead Pool 2 they read, “Executive Producer: Who the hell cares?” etc.
