My Weekend Recap

Hello my lovely readers! I hope that you had a great weekend! Sorry this post is a day late, but seeing as how I didn't have to work yesterday, it was still technically my weekend. But I promise you shouldn't be jealous of why I didn't have to work, but I will get to that in a little bit. 

Friday I got off work about an hour early. My boss told us all that we could leave early if we wanted, so of course we were all running out the door. I went and did a little bit of shopping before I had to go pick up the Husband. Oh, which reminds me, I never told you guys that my car has officially taken a crap, so we are down to one vehicle until we can come up with the rest of our down payment for a new car. But anywho, I picked up the Husband, we ran a few errands to Petsmart, World Market and King Soopers and then headed home to make dinner. 

We made some delicious grilled chicken with grilled portabella mushrooms and grilled veggies. It was soooo good. Then we just sat around and watched TV and some movies for the rest of the night. 

Saturday morning I slept in til about 11, which felt amazing. And then after spending the rest of the morning and part of the afternoon watching nothing but Harry Potter on ABC Family, Aran and I headed out to run a few more errands. We went to Petco where we bought Louie and our kitties some awesome Star Wars toys! And then we headed to Target where I spent at least an hour in the dressing room trying on shorts and swim suites(gah!) because I am in desperate need of a few more pairs of shorts and new suite to take to Hawaii in a few weeks. 

After about an hour and a zillion items of clothing later, I found a few that I was comfortable with and called it good. After we went through the checkout, we stopped and grabbed some food and then headed home. As soon as I got home I decided it was time for a nap. So I proceeded to pass the eff out for a few hours and then woke up around 7 pm. 

After waking up I got ready to head downtown to meet my friend KB to go watch the Rapids play the L. A. Galaxy. It was a great game and we won 1-0. After that I went home and headed to bed. 

Sunday was a somewhat lazy day for us. We got up and ran to the grocery store to do our grocery shopping for the week. After that we sat around the house. We watched some more Harry Potter along with some football. Even though the Broncos played on Thursday and whooped some Raven ass, we watched more for our fantasy players. Eli Manning was giving me a damn heart attack! Three interceptions! Three! But I guess I can't be too mad because I still got almost 44 points out of him. But, I digress.

I also made a couple of batches of Rhubarb Rhumble Sunday night and it turned out so so so so good! And of course I cleaned up the kitchen and did a few other things around the house. 

Monday morning I got to sleep in a little bit later than usual. Not much, but a little. And then I had to get up and get ready to head to the Oral Surgeon. A little bit of a back story, last year I had to have a tooth pulled because of some issues with a root canal that I had when I was in High School. Because of where the tooth was and the type of issues it could cause if we didn't put anything in it's place, I elected to get a dental implant. So Monday was the day that I was scheduled for it. 

I got to the office about fifteen minutes before my appt, got checked in, paid an outrageous amount of money and then waited for my name to be called. Once I got back there they put an IV in my hand and started the meds to get me sedated. I wasn't looking forward to this part. But honestly within five minutes of that IV being in, I was out! I don't remember anything until I started waking up about an hour later.

Well come to find out, they weren't able to do the implant. When they got in there, the bone graft that was done on my jaw last year when my tooth was pulled wasn't in the proper shape to be able to do the implant. So the oral surgeon had to re-do the bone graft, stitch me back up and call it good. So now, I have to wait another four months before they will be able to see if the bone graft healed correctly so that I can go ahead and get the implant done.

This whole process has been a long and frustrating process and I thought I was going to be one step closer to being done with this, but nope. I have to wait longer. Oh well, I would rather it be done correctly than not done at all. So I spent the rest of my Monday coming out of the anesthesia, sleeping, trying to eat and being in pain. Thank goodness for pain meds or omg I would be in a world of hurt. 

So that was my weekend. Some fun and some relaxation along with some not so much fun, but overall it was a good weekend. It was way too hot here, but that looks to be changing this week. Eeeek!!! Fall weather is coming. How was everyone else's weekend? Do anything fun?



  1. Ouch! Hope everything heals up well. That chicken looks delicious, by the way!

  2. Ugh to anything involving the dentist, or worse - an oral surgeon! Hope everything heals well and you're feeling better. Your dinner picture reminds me to email you some recipes! I've got to get on that!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
