The title has nothing to do with this post. I always have a hard time coming up with my titles because I don't want to just put "Weekend" or whatever. So, I asked Nate to give me the first one-liner that popped into his head. And obviously, he said "That's what she said!"
This weekend was very eventful & went by entirely too fast. (I say that every Monday.)
Nate and I headed to dinner at Genghis' Grill with our sweet friends, Chriz. They just started the Advocare challenge last week & we stayed at the table after dinner way too long discussing it. They have me THIIIIS close to joining myself, but I'm still a little iffy about it. Also, I kept complaining about the storage space on my phone since I got an alert that it was full. They asked what size I had, and I had no idea. I know nothing about technology. After checking it out, we learned that I only had 8G of space. Apparently that's not a lot. Boo.
We woke up pretty early, as usual. We had some errands to run, so we were getting ready for the day. As Nate was showering, I was perusing twitter, as usual - and I saw a pic where someone said that Best Buy was doing a one-day only promotion where you get a free iPhone 5 if you trade in your iPhone 4 or 4s. At first glance, I thought it was a spam or gimmick. Then I thought, if this is legit - I could get an upgrade to more space on my phone! So, I told Nate we needed to make a stop at Best Buy along with the rest of our errands & he didn't argue. It's his fave place.
I got to Best Buy & learned that it was in fact true. They checked to see if I was eligible for an upgrade & I was! I had no idea. So, I got a new phone. This one has 16G of space. Double what I did have! So now I can actually have more than a few apps & pics before my phone starts yelling at me. I also got a cute navy & coral Speck case on clearance. Holla! I couldn't believe how much lighter the 5 is than the 4. I love it so far.
After we did our damage there, we headed out to get wedding & baby gifts for a couple of friends. We grabbed lunch & got back home before the rain started.
Luckily, it didn't rain too long & the sun came out quick. My sister & her BFF came to see me & we all hung out by the pool 'til we got hungry for dinner.
Nate was down for fending for himself, so Dani, Casey & I had Fuddruckers for dinner. Followed by Baskin Robbins' for dessert with lots of girl talk. It was a blast. It had been a while since I saw Dani, so we got to catch up.

Once we got back to the apartment, it was getting late and we were all having so much fun watching stand up comics on Netflix, that the girls just crashed here & we had a little slumber party. :)
Woke up about an hour earlier than I normally do, and was surprised to see that the girls were already up. I had to make a run to the bank and gas station, so the girls tagged along & we stopped at Krispy Kreme for breakfast to take back to Nate at the apartment.
Enjoyed our coffee & donuts before they left. My sister asked if Binky could stay with her overnight. I thought about it, and we were going to be leaving him alone that night anyway & on Monday while we were at work, he would have 2 other dogs to chill with if my sister took him. So, I agreed. Bink went home with his Auntie Casey. :)
Once they were gone, we started to get ready for a co-ed baby shower for our friends. They're having a little boy, so the baby shower was in a suite at the Rangers game. Genius, no?!
We had a blast. The weather was 100% perfect, the view was wonderful, the food was good & visiting with our sweet friends we don't get to see all that often was just fabulous.
Once we made it back home, we had the cleaning itch. So, Nate and I cleaned the apartment like it needed it badly. We dusted all of the furniture & picture frames, etc. We vacuumed, swiffered, took out trash, the works. Feels good to start the new week fresh with a clean apartment.
Afterwards, I made us breakfast for dinner, (our fave) and I was talking about how much I missed Binky. I felt ridiculous, but I couldn't help it. He's my little baby who cuddles on the couch with me, or barks when he is done eating, and I got sad. Don't judge me. HAHA.
So, my sister and I downloaded the Tango app (because she's lame and doesn't have an iPhone, so we couldn't FaceTime) to video chat with each other & so I could tell Binky good night.
It was pretty funny. Binky didn't know what to think, my sisters' dog was all over the place & whining, but my dad's dog sat and stared dead on at the camera. It was hilarious. Then Casey put the phone in front of my dad. I started talking & he looked shocked. He said, "Bam, can you hear me? Wait, can you see me? I can see you!" Yes Dad, you adorable man you.
I couldn't resist getting a screen shot of my dad's first video chat experience
He couldn't believe it. He said, "Well I just had no idea a phone could actually do this." If you know my dad, you know how old school hickabilly he is. It's hilariously adorable.
Now, I have showered and am blogging. It's only 9:30pm & I can feel my eyes getting heavy already. I may lay down earlier than normal & read until I can't hold my eyes open anymore.
