So, this is what happens when you have a 3 year old and you can't use the bathroom or take a shower by yourself. Does this look familiar to anyone?

James and I have been planning a day together for almost 2 months. Well, Friday was the day. We took off work to spend all day together. Nolan went to the sitters, so it was just the two of us. We slept in late, he woke me up and we went to Denny's for brunch. Had some fab french toast (Denny's has the best,) then he told me he had a surprise for me. Well, he took me to Healing Water's Spa for a couples massage. I'm such a lucky girl. It was wonderful. If you know anything about us, you know that my husband suffers from back spasms and just had an MRI done today. Well, I think this massage (and anyone that he has had so far) was a mugging to him. I find his tattoo in this picture rather fitting, don't ya think? They told him he would feel so much better in a day or two, well it is Wednesday and he is still sore as can be. We will see what the MRI says hopefully tomorrow. Cross your fingers for something physical. You're probably wondering why we are hoping that. Well, if it isn't, then why is he having such debilitating pain? It literally brings him to his knees. Okay, on with the story!

So, we get home and we decide to take Nolan to Red Robin. Yum. The bird gave him a high five, and he said. "That's a cool bird." So adorable. I didn't get a picture with him and the bird, but hey, I'm trying to get more pictures of us, so I'm happy. Red Robin had a free car show that night, so here are a couple of awesome cars we seen.

Can anyone say, "Bumblebee?" Ya know, from Transformers, which happens to be one of my movies I thoroughly enjoy.

Love this interior. Orange rocks. Oh, the orange is really orange, not a red orange. Such a cool print.

A car after my own heart. Need I say more?

Love, Love, Love the paint job!

Me and Nolan goofing around. Yeah, another picture of us.

This weekend's project was to paint the laundry room, put a clothes folding table and a couple of shelves. Here is the awesome color we picked. We bought a black granite style (laminate) counter top and Lowes for my folding table. We are going to replace the trim with white trim and still have to put some vinyl flooring in.
From the hail storm yesterday. OMG. We got caught driving in it. That is pretty scary. The hail is the size of ping pong balls.

Those are just a couple of pictures from the past week. Well, from Friday on. Everyone enjoy their week and wohoo, it's a short work week.

Time to update

So, I got to sleep in a little this morning. James and Nolan fixed me some pancakes and turkey bacon for breakfast. Super Yummy!! Katrina had to work today, so we were on sitting duty. It wasn't a very laid back day, but it was beautiful none the less. Nolan and I napped together, played together and then James grilled out for us. We had some yummy bbq chicken, corn on the cob and watermelon.
Not much else has been happening. I haven't been able to scrap in awhile. I really need to. I could use the therapy. I bought the Pagemaps book and the new Lisa Bearnson book out at the Attic on Saturday.
I went to my sister-in-laws baby shower. Kinda uncomfortable since my mom and I were the only people we knew. Everyone else is super tight, so we stayed just long enough and we were out! Don't get me wrong, we like Jessica, but when you don't know anyone else, you feel very uncomfortable.
Really folks, there isn't much else going on. Have a great week!
