Janette and the EVERYTHING weekend!

This weekend was EVERYTHING! Yes. EVERYTHING! I was busy...I was lazy...I relaxed... I stressed... I lounged....I worked...I did it all!  Here's how it started....Friday I was off of work and babysat my two nieces... I decided to take them to Chuck-E-Cheese cause it was hot as a muffin inside my house and I needed a kid-friendly air-conditioned facility, stat! So I whisked the babies (ages 3 & 6) away for an afternoon of over-priced pizza and games... I spent $40 there. Why and how?!!? I'm not sure. I'm blaming the glow-in-the-dark hand stamp they put on me at the entrance. I was very unreasonable and extravagant after that. At least the girls had fun, so I guess it was worth it.

After the cheesy pizza place, I met up with Lovey and his coworkers for some tacos. Me meeting Lovey's coworkers=Inner turmoil, stress, and anxiety. The situation felt super awkward on many levels,  Mainly, Lovey can't stop talking about me at work...So these strangers know everything about me. As a result,  I really felt like they had one-up on me. They know everything about me, but I'm meeting them for the first time (and I know very little about them)...Weird, right? All I can really say about the evening is that they were nice people and it wasn't as bad as I had envisioned... Take it as you will..

Saturday, after another afternoon at the library, Lovey and I went swimming at a friends' house. This friend (our newest fave person EVER!) was out of town and let us borrow his pool. It was the best pool-side experience of the summer! I mean... The whole place to ourselves? WOW! It was FANTASTIC! Well that is until we discovered paint coming off the sides and bottom of the pool creating a murky substance that left our feet white and cakey. Yuuuummy... Nothing like taking a dip in milky lead water,eh... As is expected,  we left soon after.  Day ruined??? NOT A CHANCE! That evening we took my parents out to a legit Persian restaurant, complete with live music, belly dancing, and Koobideh! You know what weirds me out a little though? Koobideh looks like poopy. It tastes the opposite of poopy(Not that I know what poopy tastes like) But for real.. Why can't they shape the beef differently? I'd take a kidney-shaped meat slab over a poopy-shaped one ANY DAY!

WOW! I said "poopy" like 10 times in the last paragraph. Sorry that won't happen again.. Okay.. Onward and forward...So Sunday was my lounging/work day. I pretty much started editing my last wedding shoot as soon as I woke up. Yeah. That picture that looks like I just rolled out of bed???? I took that at 3PM. I didn't even fix my bedhead until about 5 when I had to go run an errand. Raar! Poor Lovey who had to look at my lazy woman face all day. Sorry Lovey!:-/
