My weekend in a nutshell

Sunday, April 03, 2011

Last Friday was my last day at work!! It was a great day, though I did have some April Fool's pranks played on me! I sat down in my chair and it wobbled all over the place, I thought it was busted! I was trying so hard to figure out what was wrong with it, come to find out someone had taken all the wheels off of it and hidden them! Then my phone was unplugged and my pen was taped to the desk, LOL. When I left to go to the bathroom I came back and there was a "stripper pole" put up for me! See for yourself:



And a pill bottle next to it because apparently strippers are heavy pill users? LOL



There was a little story behind it. The day before this stripper pole I was leaving work for the day and my co worker ask what I was going to do that night. Well I said I was going to go to my step class and she was like what???? My other co worker pipes in and jokingly says "She's going to strip class". So then they ask if I will give them a demonstration tomorrow and I say sure as long as I have a pole. Then another girl pipes in and says "I'll be your pole!". Oh boy, that was my queue to leave! Lol so lo and behold they got me a pole! I just really have to laugh at that, it was so creative! Too bad the money on the pole wasn't real! They threw an ice cream party for my leaving and Chad brought me pizza at lunch time to celebrate my last day. So this weekend hasn't been so great as far as eating, but I've been trying to keep portions in check! :)

It was definitely weird cleaning out my desk and saying goodbye to everyone. I've worked there the last 5 years, ever since finishing high school and it's been the only "real job" I've had. But I'm really excited to focus on my health and school in the meantime! Even though I had a decent job, I wasn't happy doing it and it doesn't matter how good the benefits are if you're not happy. I'll be going to school for medical assisting which I think will be a lot better fit for me.



So my husband was supposed to be working Friday and Saturday nights but he ended up being off work, which turned out to be a lot of fun! Friday night we worked on the yard for a little but, he would rake up leaves and leftover dead stuff and I would come around on the 4 wheeler and put it in a box and drive it back to the fire pit. I didn't need to do that and it was silly but I was having so much fun! Then we went to the store and rented Tangled!



I was REALLY tired throughout some of it and ended up falling asleep but what I saw of it was very cute! I love the animation on it. I'm sure I will see the rest of it sometime this week since my niece and nephew are coming over tonight and staying for the week! My lucky sister gets to go to Mexico for like the FIFTH time, wish I could go even once!

On Saturday Hubby and I did some more yardwork. I mowed the lawn while he trimmed and got some other things done. We decided to have ribs and apple cobbler made in the dutch ovens and it turned out to be really good! It was actually a lot of work and ended up taking us longer than we thought but that's okay, maybe I burned off some extra calories!

Here's my hubby and his dessert:



Doesn't this look delicious? We put cake batter ice cream with it instead of vanilla and it was soo yummy! We have TONS of leftovers so if anyone wants some, come get it! lol ;)



Now with all these scrumptious pictures, it should be said that we did do SOMETHING healthy this weekend! We went to IFA and picked out seeds for our garden, as well as some tomato, jalapeno, and strawberry plants! I can't wait to make some canned salsa this year!



On the agenda today before Hubby went to work was a cermony to rid the shoes that I've been wearing to work! They had holes in the bottom where everytime it rained or snowed cold water would seep up and make me socks all wet, it was a long winter! :( I didn't want to buy new shoes because I knew I'd be quitting one of these days. So long ya junkie shoes!


Showing off the bottom holes:


Drop kicking them:


Stomping the crap outta them:






Lol can ya tell I didn't like those shoes???!!??

So long!!



Anyway there is my weekend in a nutshell so far! I need to head to the store today to get some supplies for crafts and such with the kiddos, I'm sure that blogs will follow through the week!
:)
Hope you are all having a great weekend!

I'll end off with a most recent picture of yours truly! :)

    Cute! I'm so glad you had a lovely weekend with your hubby! Time together is the absolute best- never take that for granted! I'm so glad you are making a change and doing medical assisting instead, I'm sure you'll be great at it!
