Anniversary Vacation Recap

 OK, so I think I left off with Sunday.  We slept in (and skipped church) and then went out to breakfast at I-Hop.  They were celebrating an anniversary too!  I had pancakes & Tim had an omolette as usual.  After breakfast, we swung by the pharmacy & got my Rx for the 1500 mg of Metformin.  (I had already been taking 1500 mg for about a week.)  We also got the Sunday paper, 6 Composition Notebooks (50 cents each!), and a People.  Then we went to the mall to take in a movie, but nothing was playing yet & the tickets weren’t even on sale!  So we stepped RIGHT next door to Pearle Vision.  Their eye exam center was open & so Tim made an appointment to get his exam.  Yay!  While he was being seen, I checked out the glasses & narrowed my selection down to 2 or 3 pairs.  When Tim came out, we found some glasses for him too.  We ended up buying his right then & there!  They should be here by next Friday.  Then we high tailed it back to Cinema Café for Indiana Jones @ 3:45.  That was OK.  Tim says I need to see the other Indie movies to see that this one kind of sucked.  I enjoyed it though.  Then we ran to Wal-Mart for milk & butter, and what the heck, they had school supplies on sale, so I stocked up on Crayola goods for 88 cents each!  (25 boxes of crayons & then a handful of markers & colored pencils).  Then we went home, I did some chores around the house, Tim fixed the lawnmower & cut a tiny bit of the grass & we generally putzed around, being lazy.  After that, we headed out with the doggies to take the truck over to the dealership for our drop off appointment.  (Tim’s stereo is broken, in his 2 month old truck!)   When we got home, we went to bed.


Monday was a lazy day.  We tried to go to DMV, but there was a line, so we skipped it.  Then we went to the bank & got the paperwork signed for our now 2 year missing Savings Bond.  Then we mailed it at the post office.  After that we went to Pearle Vision and asked my eye doctor to fax my Rx to them.  Then we went up in the mall for some lunch.  I had Chick Fil A, Tim had Sarku Japan.  Then we wandered a bit, we even ran into Tim’s friend Nick from work.  (His wife is expecting in 5 weeks!)  After we got my eye glasses we left & headed home.  Tim cut the grass & I helped pick up sticks & debris.  Then I came in and did some dishes & started dinner.  We had left over spaghetti for dinner.  It was good.  I also got a call from my good friend at school who is 25 weeks pregnant. (are you seeing a pattern here?)  We are going to “do” lunch on Friday!  We were pretty lazy Monday night & I don’t have anything else on my notes. 


Tuesday was our actual anniversary.  We have been married for 2 years & together for almost 5.  Tim went out & got a dozen Dunkin Donuts for breakfast.  I had 1 and then we started to get ready to go to DMV to get Tim’s name put on my registration, only to find out that you need the Title to get that done.  So we got the paperwork, but didn’t get it taken care of.  We need his name on my registration so that he can get Base stickers for my car, so we can carpool.  After that we went to Kohl’s to get Tim’s shirts off of hold.  Only when we got there, we decided to just buy him some full priced shirts because they are his favorite.  He ALMOST bought a purple one, but put it back at the last minute.  I LOVE purple & I would LOVE to see my man rock a purple dress shirt.  Maybe, for Easter.  After that, we ran to Wal-Mart for a pregnancy test, which you know was negative.  After Wal-Mart we went to Cinema Cafe for  Iron Man at 12:45, because Tuesday is their dollar day.  We got 2 movie tickets a bucket of popcorn & a pitcher of coke for $10.50 with tip!  We both thoroughly enjoyed the movie.  I think we might buy it.   I had a RAGING migraine by that point, so we headed home after the movie.  When we got home, I went to bed.  Tim woke me up around 5 & we started getting ready to go to Captain George’s.  We both got all spiffed up (I even wore make-up!) and left around 6:30.  We had the buffet & both ate until we were stuffed.  Mmm mmm…crab legs!  and mmm..mmmm….fried clam strips.  Oh, I love that place!  I had a strawberry daquiri while we were there & it was worth every penny we paid for it!  After that, we went to Applebee’s for dessert & drinks.  We got a Blondie to share.  Tim got a Mudslide & I tried a Long Island Iced Tea for the first time.  The first few sips made me crinkle my face, but after that I was a-ok.  We had a nice long, relaxing time together.  Then we headed home & went to bed!


I REALLY enjoyed our “lazy” week together.  We ended up not saving any money, over what it would have cost to go out of town, but we did a LOT more than we would have if we had gone away!  I saved tid bits from here & there & had a hostess take our picture while we were out to dinner, so I plan on making a collage frame from this week for our walls. 


Today was back to business as usual.  I picked up the chillens & Chrissy & we had a good day.

I played Easy Bake Oven & the girls swam in the pool.  I got some cute pics, but WordPress is a pain to upload pics to.  So, you’ll have to see the prints! 


Tim and I went to Moe’s for dinner!  We had to try it, after all the hype Melanie gives the place!  It was OK, but not as good as Qdoba in my opinion.  It does help that it is only 10 minutes away & not 30 though!  They also have $1 kids’ meals on Sunday, which is good to keep in mind. 


Now, its time for bed I think!

Anni. Vaca is over

Too tired/drunk to blog.  More another day.  Preg. test = negative. Cry with me.  Tim said he is ready for me to go to the fertility specialist though & he’ll even get tested if he needs to.  As long as I am CAPABLE of getting pregnant we will try…we aren’t going to go so far as artificial insem or any other drastic means though.  If we can’t get pregnant the “old fashioned way” (with the helps of meds) we’ll adopt.  That’s the reality of it for us. 

We had an awesome anniversary vacation, as you can tell by my lack of blogging over the last 3 days…I’ve been to busy!

Anniversary Vacation Day 3

Well today was a good day! I started off with a nightmare about returning to work.  Basically, the kids came back on the same day as my first day back & I had 0 time to set up my classroom!  (These are the WIERD things teachers have nightmares about!)  I had to scramble to get things CLEAN (dusty) and organized enough for the kids…I was wearing jeans & sneakers…and not my pretty NEW outfit…I was SO bummed/stressed/upset/tired/sad about it.  It woke me up WAY early & I couldn’t go back to sleep. 

Tim slept in & then we spent the entire morning & early afternoon bumming on our computers & in bed.  I reheated last nights left overs for lunch & then we got moving.  Around 3ish we got to Busch Gardens.  I think we rode like 3 things while we were there.  We met up with Tim’s parents & sister.  We had a snack in Italy & then dinner in Italy too!  I got a HUGE cotton candy (like a foot and a half square!) for $4.  I swear that’s the only thing in the park where you get what you pay for. 

Around 8:30 we decided to leave the park, so we trekked back to “Bavaria” which is where we parked (yes the auxilliary to the auxilliary!) and headed homeward.  We decided to go see a movie so our first stop was Cinema Cafe.  Nothing good was playing there, so we headed to Regal Cinemas.  It was 9:30, and Wall-E was scheduled to play at 9:25.  The clerk said it hadn’t started yet & only 13 people bought tickets so we jumped in! 

I was disapointed.  I LOVE the premise of the movie (basically TRASH killed Earth & all the humans have been living in outer space for 700 years on a spaceship.  They have gotten fat & lazy.  Then they realize that there’s life on Earth & head back to make a better world.)  BUT, it was seriously lacking.  I am not even sure we’ll BUY this one.  This is major–our DOG’s name is WAZOWSKI.  As in, Mike from Monster’s Inc.  We generally love all things Pixar/Disney.  We were pretty psyched about this movie & it flopped pretty big time for us.  I do not recommend you spend the money to see it in theaters.  Wait for the video! 

Next up.  Tim and I are going to start looking into the “Get Paid to Drive” gimmicks going on.  I would totally advertise for someone else for free gas + cash each month!  If you know anything about it, please post & let me know!  Thanks! 

Well, I think we’re off to bed!

Anniversary Vacation: Day 2

Well, today was a pretty good day.  Tim & I slept in until 11 & 10:30 respectively.  Then we spent a lot of time doing nothing & laying in bed.  I think it was around 3 when we headed to Toyota.  I told Tim we should call first but he wanted to drive out there.  They weren’t able to take the truck today, so we’ll bring it back for service on Monday.  After that we stopped by the library to return & renew my books on our way home.  We spent some time on our computers & then I did my call-ahead for my Mystery Shop at Texas Roadhouse.  Then it was time to head out to dinner.  We had a LOVELY dinner.  We pretended we’d never been there before & got a free sampler.  After dinner, Tim dropped me off at Kohl’s so I could do our anniversary gift shopping.  He went to Best Buy, Lowe’s and Wal-Mart.  He bought The Sword in the Stone’s 45th anniversary edition while he was at Best Buy.  Then he came back to Kohl’s.  We both tried on clothes for a long time before we finished at 9:30. 

When we got home I tried on all my new outfits (and some old mixtures for Tim). 

I got new Avia Sneakers and a new bra.  I also got a purple dress, a teal tank top and a teal/brown paisley print skirt, a purple sleeveless button down collar shirt & a purple & black skirt, a lt. blue or periwinkle tank top with a collar, a purple striped sweater, a salmon & brown skirt, a brown pullover dress top, and brown dot skirt.  All together I got 13 things.  Which can be combined with what I own to make more than 12 outfits for work! Yay! I should be able to go at least 2 weeks without repeating an outfit now!  Yay!  I also feel & look good in everything I bought.  I still need a new pair of black pumps (got any recomendations?) and a pair of slightly dressy brown sandals. 

Tim got a pair of black pleated Docker’s golf pants, a black short sleeve shirt, a black Docker’s golf polo, and a blue/beige long sleeve button down. 

We put 3 shirts on hold for him as well.  I think they were all black with stripes.  We’ll use our $50 in Kohl’s cash to go get those on Monday. 

After I showed off my clothes, Tim modeled his.  Then we watched The Sword in the Stone while I did my report & Tim played on the computer. 

Now, I think it’s bedtime!
