The Quinceanera was fun. We sat at a table with friends so that made the evening enjoyable. We had a nice dinner. The honoree and her court performed some dances which were quite impressive and then cake was served. DS and I took a turn on the dance floor. We left the place around 11. The music was way too loud for us and it wasn't our taste in music either so we said our goodbyes and headed home.
Have a relaxing day!

These were the two colors I picked today. I got Sweet Heart, the one on the left, for my nails and California Raspberry on my toes. I love this color. I also got a chair massage while there today. It felt so good. Now my friend and I are all ready for tomorrow night. We have been invited to a Quinceanera. This is the second one I have ever been invited too. We are going and it should be lots of fun with food and dancing. More about it later this weekend. Most of my girlfriends will be there as well. Angie, the honoree, is the daughter of a friend at work, so it will be nice to see familiar faces since we have been off for the summer. Later in the day we ran some errands and then made a stop at Baskin Robbins. I think we will have to make this a weekly visit. There were some interesting flavors that I want to try. The rain came again today. I think we may be all starting to grow web feet. This has been the wettest summer that I can ever remember. I will have to look this information up! So not much time outside or swimming.
Have a great weekend!

The above blue top and skirt is so comfortable. The skirt has a ruffle hem so it swings when you walk. Now I need to get shoes and a new purse and I'll be set.
The green dress I'm going to use as a swimsuit cover up. It's the perfect summer green and has a palm tree embroidered and beaded up at the top. It has an attached hood and a kangaroo pocket on front. And the bonus beach bag will look great toting around all summer.
Both items were purchased from QVC when they were the Today Special Offer.
Today we are spending time doing some projects around the house. Cleaning out DS's room and closet. Getting ready to paint next week. Later this evening we are having dinner with my folks at a new steak house.
Hope your day is off to a great start!

This bride is a special one. Her family and mine have been friends for quite a long time. The shower is this Saturday and there wasn't a whole lot left on her registry. My mom and I are throwing the shower but I am doing nothing. How great is that? Mom insists on doing all the food because she wants it a certain way. I couldn't be happier. But I know that I will be the one washing all the crystal afterwards. Thanks mom! We meet DH for lunch and then ran DS to tutoring. While he was getting smarter, I finished up my book, Bright Lights, Big Ass. I thought this book was so funny. I laughed out loud while reading many times. I can't decide what to start next. Have you read anything good lately?
After tutoring, we hit the market. I have been meaning to go grocery shopping for 3 days but kept putting it off. DH raved about my meals I cooked last week and wanted a repeat so I made this long list and we shopped until we dropped. It started to rain as we pulled into the parking lot so we gathered my bag, umbrella, Sonic drinks and list and made our way into the store. This particular store has the shopping carts on the outside and partly under cover. We were trying to find one that wasn't soaking wet and littered with trash. Finally we found one. I put the umbrella in, sit my bag on the child seat area and we place our drinks in the cup holders. Next I start digging in my bag for the list. The one with all the ingredients for the fabulous meals I am going to make this week. We can't find it! We look all around the carts, the entrance area to the store, in the cart. I call to DS to look and see if you can see it in the parking lot in the sea of trash that is blowing around from the rain and wind. He thinks he sees it. I have him guard our cart, bag and umbrella and I run out into the parking lot looking at each piece of paper to see if I can find it. I didn't take the umbrella because the wind was picking up and didn't want to look like an idiot with my umbrella turned inside out. Finally found the list near our car, soaking wet and fasted walked back to the store entrance. Now my feet are wet and cold and I'm not happy. We wonder all over that store, up and down each aisle looking for all the ingredients. I am no cook so it takes me awhile to locate things in the store which is OK since its pouring outside. We did have one ingredient that stumped us-dark corn syrup. We walked that store twice looking for that bottle. By the time we finished the rain was slowing down and we were able to get it all packed into the car and home to unload with out getting soaked. After all that, I was exhausted and didn't want to cook so we had pita sandwiches for dinner. DH was not too pleased but it was hard work pushing that cart full of food and then having to put it all up. So tomorrow I have to cook something good. I need to find that list that had all the entrees I was going to make!
Hope your day went smoother than mine!

Sunday was church and lunch with my parents afterwards. After lunch DH took a nap and DS and I went to World Market and Goodwill before going to get his haircut. No purchasing at either one of those places, just looking! After haircut we went to Walmart. I really hate shopping here. DS was on the prowl for a new Lego's set which costs around $5. We left Walmart with $100 of stuff! DS didn't find his Lego set but he has new bedding and I have some cute headbands and magazines and painting supplies(brushes, rollers, pan and that blue tape). I am going to attempt to paint his room. Now I have to figure out how much paint to purchase and what color. I see a trip to Home Depot later this week! We arrived home as DH was waking up so we got ready for dinner. But first we were stopping at Target. I really love this store! Purchased new mattress cover for DS new bedding, Lego set and hairspray. Dinner was at another place we enjoy, La Madeleine French Bakery. I think I could eat here everyday.
Today, Monday, we got up and went straight to the Y. I completed my workout and then DS wanted to go swimming, but of course the warm pool was closed due to lessons and water aerobics so he had to swim in the lap pool, which is cold and he hates it. We came back home to get ready for the day. We went out for lunch at Subway. DS wants to try each daily special. I don't know why. I agreed but not all during the same week! Then we went to Best Buy. I am still looking for a new computer. I think I found one but I just need to run it by DH again before I purchase and schedule Geek Squad to come hook it all up. Oh, how I wished I knew more about technology! DS had tutoring and I had a parent teacher conference. Then we came home to gather our grocery list to head to the market. Maybe I can get out of cooking again tonight, crossing my fingers!
Hope your week is off to a great start!

I did the above while DS was in tutoring. When he was finished, we went to the YMCA so that he could swim. Today the lifeguards were very whistle friendly. They kept blowing those dang whistle while I was reading and it was very annoying! I had a run in with one of the lifeguards awhile back and she walks way around me or doesn't even look at me now. She tried to tell me that I was doing something wrong when I wasn't and I had to go complain at the front desk so now she knows not to mess with me!
Hope your week is going well!
