Memorial Day Weekend

Gosh, the week got away from me. Obviously, considering I’m just now writing about Memorial Day Weekend, which was LAST weekend.

It was a crazy busy weekend!!! But tons of fun. Started Friday night and didn’t even end until Tuesday night because of out-of-town family in town.

Friday night started with a work “party” at the Grizzlies Game. We had a ton of fun. Didn’t take too many photos that night, I was too busy socializing. Here is one that I took. Co-worker Amanda, co-worker Sara and I. We’re great co-worker/friends. πŸ™‚

Saturday was my cousin’s wedding – all day and all night.

Sunday we spent the day at Mom and Dad’s house. My Aunt, Uncle and two cousins were in town from Colorado, as well as my big Bro. πŸ™‚ I LOVE family time! Around 4:00 Aunt, Uncle an cousins started their drive back to CO. (Bro flew back to CO on Monday morning.) The rest of Sunday evening Mom, Grandma and I took a little drive and went to get Tropical Snos. YUM! πŸ™‚ No pictures from Sunday.

Monday I was a COMPLETE bum. Switched out my Winter shoes with my Summer shoes. I will be SO glad when I have a house with a Winter and Summer closet. haha πŸ™‚ The “switching out Summer and Winter clothes every season” is “for the birds” (as Gma would say). πŸ˜‰ I am not too proud to admit that I didn’t even get out of my PJs on Monday. What a great feeling! πŸ˜€

Tuesday after work we headed to Des Peres. Ric and I LIVE for Uncle Mark’s BBQ Ribs. Since Uncle Mark and Aunt Corrie were in town for my cousin’s wedding (from Switzerland), we were invited to their house in Des Peres (yes, they have a house here and there) for some BBQ ribs and more family time! πŸ˜€ SWEET.

(Sorry for the awful point & shoot quality photos.)
Mom showed up with this. YUMMMMY!

Mom also showed up with this. I’m sure you have already met Cupcake, but if you haven’t, she is Mom and Dad’s brat dog. My “Sis”, as I like to call her.

UM & AC have little “neighborhood friends”. They came out to play towards the end of the night.

And Grandma gave Cupcake some love! πŸ™‚

The red face is a combination of being in the sun for a while that afternoon and the wine that Grandma was drinking. I wonder what the dialysis doctors thought the next day! πŸ˜‰ ha

Beautiful sunset!

That night, on our way home, we had to stop and get gas. Ric has a tendency to find THE most inconvenient times to go through the car wash. 1) It was raining all day and they were calling for storms all night. 2) I was flippin’ tired from the busy weekend and just wanted to get home and get in bed. ha Oh well, at least we had a clean car for approximately 2 hours (before the storm rolled in). “But it only cost $1.00.” blah blah blah hahaha

Thankfully, this weekend we don’t have a lot going on. I’m going to be spending time photo editing (story of my life, which is okay), we have an event on Saturday evening (more on that later, can’t tell you right now), and Sunday is going to be a relaxful day at home (I hope).

Hope everyone has a great weekend! πŸ˜€
