Wicky, wicky weekend recap

That was my attempt at rapping.. moving on!

This past weekend was the weekend that Nate's parents moved to Montana. To say it was tough to say goodbye is an understatement. They left early Saturday morning, so we (me, Nate, his step-brother and Nate's BFF) stayed at the hotel they stayed in on Friday night.

When I got to the hotel on Friday after work, our good friends were there with their 5 month old baby, and she is SO sweet. She's gotten so big since we saw her back in February right after she was born.

Such a happy baby, and she loved Nate!

Friday night, we went out to dinner with lots of their close friends from the neighborhood and we had a good time. Until it came time to leave and everyone was saying goodbye. The tears started coming from everyone, and it made me sad to see the group telling them how much they'd miss them.

We headed back to the hotel to have some drinks, talk, laugh, take pictures and just hang out for the last night we'd be all together in Texas. I also loved on JJ a lot. She's their yorkie who I'm going to miss SO much!

Is she not the cutest thing?

We called it an early night since they were going to be leaving bright and early Saturday morning, and we were getting up to help them get stuff outta the hotel room and say goodbye ourselves.

Saturday morning was so surreal. There were plenty of tears shed from all of us. Nate's mom said she didn't even have to ask me to take care of him for her because she knows that I already do a good job. :)

We headed back to the room and tried to get in a little more sleep before we had to leave.

None of us were sleeping that good, so we got up to take in my favorite part of staying in a hotel.. the continental breakfast! :)

The waffle maker was in the shape of Texas. Loved it!

After check out, we headed back to Nate's place to chill and watch TV for a little bit. Around lunchtime, we decided to head out to Fuzzy Tacos (so yummy!) They have tables with tops on them that you can slide business cards into. Pretty cool.

I did a little advertising ;)

After we ate, Nate and Chris decided they wanted to go by Best Buy. (I've realized this is like man heaven) Nate has been going back and forth on whether or not he should get a PS3, and he finally decided he was going to do it. However, we soon found out that this Best Buy was out of stock. The closest one was a good 20 minutes away.

I had him drop me off at the apartment (it was on the way) because I was tired and didn't feel like making the trek to go buy something that isn't going to benefit me anyway. I dropped plenty of hints that I still want a kindle though. ;)

He described his excitement as "it's like bringing home a newborn from the hospital"... MEN! ;)

Since I knew that I was going to be ignored for the rest of the night, I took it upon myself to get a little crafty. I had a lot of fun, and I'll blog more on that later this week.

I also watched the "My Strange Addiction" marathon that was on TLC. Have any of you watched this show? It's ri-damn-diculous, but I can't stop watching.

We woke up yesterday and grabbed lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings, where it was insanely packed due to the fact that everyone was there to watch the World Cup. We stayed until half time, then headed back to Nate's apartment to finish the game.

I guess we got bored, because we decided to count all of the beer caps that Nate has in this canister. I don't know why, but we always save them when we drink a beer.

I'm going to have to find something creative to do for him with all these.

Final count was 155.

That was our weekend in a wrap! How was yours?

I love anything Texas shaped. I bought TX shaped tortilla chips just because of that reason. Sounds like it was a fantastic weekend, despite having to say goodbye to Nate's parents. I LOLed at Nate's comment about bringing home his PS3.
