Weekend on the Town...

I finally got to go into Columbus for the first time in over 3 weeks. That is pretty sad, I know. I drive to Aberdeen and back everyday, so by the time I get home, I don't want to drive anywhere else. And for the last 3 weekends, we have been at home sick or just resting. Lazy? Yes. Much needed? Yes. But this weekend was different. D and I actually went out to eat! YEAH! We went to The Grill. A usual place for us in Columbus. We got appetizer, main course, AND dessert! :) That is big timing for us! It was so good, too. I forgot what restaurant food tasted like. Ha. Then we did a Wal-Mart and Kroger run. We went to bed early and slept in late. As in 10 a.m. late. How heavenly it was, too. We did a little yard work and let the kiddos play in their bounce house. They played outside for at least 2 hours, if not more. It was so pretty outside today and we were all soaking it up! This weather is completely random in the middle of our "winter," but it is so nice! We all got dressed and went into town to meet my mom and grandmother at... wait for it.... our newest addition to Columbus... CHICK-FIL-A! YES! We finally got one! :) And it has been PACKED since it opened. I mean, wrapped around the building, can't get in the door packed. But, we waited in line and it was totally worth it. This girl LOVES their chicken. And, they are a Christian based company! So Christian chicken! What could be better! :) :) After our savory chicken sandwiches... K asked to go to Smackers. Can't go eat with the kiddos and not go to Smackers! So off we went! I got my usual white chocolate with coffee beans and heath bar pieces. YUM. YUM. YUM. Everytime. K got something strange I am sure. It was my grandmother's first Smackers experience, to which she was excited and overly pleased. Strawberry with banana pudding. Oh ya. It was good.
Getting ready for another week, getting clothes laid out, lunches planned, dinner planned, and schedules set. I am FINALLY getting my hair done this week! It is desperate for a highlight and a cut. Still debating on whether to chop it off or leave it long. Hmmmm... We'll see. H has her one year appt. for her tubes in her ears. Hoping all goes well with that! I can't ever tell if they are still in there or not! And they are so little, we wouldn't see them even if they did fall out!
BTW.... only 15 weeks of school in the school year. Amen. Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. And all the other praises I can think of. Whew. This year has done it in for me, and I am marking my days down until May 25th. Seriously. I mark an "X" on the calendar everyday when I get home. Whoever is reading this.. y'all just pray that opportunities and doors are opened and God's will is and will be done as far as my career goes. And D's career. He is thinking and contemplating a lot these days, and we need some clarity as to what path he needs to take and how to take it! We know God is working, but some signs sometimes wouldn't hurt! :) Oh ya, I found the cutest valentine's to make for the kids' classes this year! Can't wait to make and show them! Thanks, Pinterest! (totally addictive and bad for your job and home life ;)
Here's the only picture from this weekend. Yes, I know. I am totally slacking. One thing at a time...

 And this is just because I like it. Really... Pretty cool!
