Over the Weekend

I had such a fabulous weekend, although most if it is stuff that you probably wouldn't care about.

On Friday, I had the opportunity to hear my cousin speak to a crowd of about 10,000 people.  It was such a neat experience!  I drove my Grandpa to the event and enjoyed getting to listen to him talk for hours on end.  I learned a lot about my family heritage.  My great-great uncle immigrated to this country because he was hiding from the German army.  Soldiers came on the boat looking for him.  But he was hiding behind the large hoop skirts of two women.  How interesting is that?

I saw so many friends on Friday and got to have lunch with a cousin from another state.  We ate here, a place I had never heard of.  They send you home with a free muffin!  How awesome is that?

On Saturday, I went shopping for $10.00 jeans.  How cheap is that?  We ate at our favorite pizza place and acted goofy with the kids.  The kids and I waited outside the restaurant with a piece of paper and Sharpie in hand.  When Hubby exited with aviators and an iPhone, the boys swarmed him, asking for his autograph.  He obliged and patted them on the heads, never putting down his phone.  Then I snapped a picture of them together and Hubby walked away.  A woman dining on the patio yelled for my attention, "Ma'am, ma'am!  Who was that?"  I answered honestly and gave her Hubby's real name.  "Wow, how awesome!  Congratulations, little man!"  Still laughing, I rounded up the kids and hurried to the car.  Just then, I realized that Hubby was the one with the keys!  Son #1 ran around to the side of the restaurant to get the keys.  The kids and I drove around the building and quickly picked him up.  He hid on the floor of the van until we cleared the restaurant.  It was one of the funniest things I've done in a long time!  How goofy is that?

On Sunday, I met my little cousin's new boyfriend.  He was adorable and full of personality.  I am so happy for her and hope he is The One.  I got to eat at Chipotle for lunch and you all know how awesome that is for me!  Also on Sunday, Son #1 officially joined the youth group at church.  He now sits with the other kids instead of with me.  On Friday, he will attend his first youth service.  The youth staff will load the kids up on vans after service and take them out to eat.  It seems like I was just in the youth group a couple years ago.  Now my kid is so grown up!  How crazy is that?

Today, I got to have lunch with a new friend.  You guessed it, Chipotle again.  I know, I have a serious problem.  It was really nice getting to know one another.

So, that's what I've been up to.  It may not have been interesting enough to blog about but it was perfect for me.  What's the best thing from your weekend?
