Catching up...

I haven't posted in a few days...since J arrived I have been super busy! He and Bella came in right on time on Thursday night. We were thrilled that there were no delays or travel snafus...especially given the weather in Texas, where he connected. He managed to miss it, which was awesome! As soon as we got home I had to get ready for bed, since Friday I had our big board meeting. I was there all day!

The meeting went really well and I finally met all of the "movers and shakers" of our organization. They were all super funny, intelligent and outgoing. And most of all they seemed to like me too, which is great! I was nervous coming into it, but at the end of the day, I was sure that they liked me and I liked them.

I got home and changed clothes and we went to dinner at IHOP. We got home and walked the dogs and met some of our neighbors. There are a lot of young families in this neighborhood. We got home and I was exhausted and fell into bed around 9 pm. J stayed up a while, I think he's still on California time.

Saturday, I had to be at work by 9 am for more meetings. J slept in and I came home around 1 pm. We headed to the Brookside neighborhood for lunch at Oliver's Twist, a little bistro. We had the black and blue fries, which are to die for! They are french fries smothered with blackened chicken and blue cheese. YUMMY! After that we headed to Sears. We were looking for a treadmill. We found a great deal on one with a built in TV...marked down significantly since it was the last one in stock! It will be delivered on Wednesday! YAY! No excuses not to use it, with all of its convenient features and it being right in our house!

Then we headed to the Home Decorator's store to buy a rug for the living room. After looking at each and EVERY rug they had in store (over 100) we settled on this one:

It's a little dark in this photo, but it has beige, red, gold, navy, tan, sage and teal green in it. Perfect for our decor. And the price was right since it was also the last one in stock, in this size. So we scored!

After a day full of shopping we had a little nosh at TGIFridays and headed home. I was pretty tired and again fell asleep around 9 pm. J stayed up surfing the net and watching SNL, which comes on at 10:30 pm here.

Today, we'll take it easy, do some laundry and vacuum and get ready for the work week all over again.
