I want to write about my weekend, because I had an awesome time Friday night, and I don’t want to forget about it.
A local triplet mom friend invited me and two other moms from our group to a Hornets game. Her husband is one of the coaches, so we were going to be watching in style! It was very exciting. I’ve never been to a professional basketball game before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I mean, you know I’m not a huge sports fan. But I’ve decided if I’m going to watch a sport, let’s make it basketball. It’s fast-paced and not too complicated. (Though I don’t mind watching a football game, as long as it’s the Saints and the Superbowl. So a rare game.)
Anyway, the game was really awesome because a) we won, and b) we got to meet a player afterwards. The best part was while we were standing in awe of this huge young man who just scored a bunch of points in a winning game, he was in awe of us for having triplets. A mutual admiration society, if you will.
So that was fun. I love girls’ nights out! So fun.
Saturday morning was spent hanging out with the boys before I brought them to Granny & Grandpa’s.
When I dropped them off I got my birthday gifts from them – a boatload of Vera Bradley accessories including a very handy lunch bag.
After that, I went with my friend Steph and her daughter to take senior pictures. It was fun, and Madison was a great model. She’s normally pretty quiet and shy, but she is extremely photogenic and seemed quite comfortable. I’m so thrilled with some of the shots we got, but this is one of my favorites:
After we got back to Steph’s house, I kind of sat on the sofa and never left. We drank some wine, watched a bunch of old episodes of Downton Abbey, and just hung out. That was nice.
And that was about it for our weekend. The weather has been so gross (thank goodness we got a break from the rain and mist and fog on Saturday for Madi’s pics) that a friend commented this morning that it was like living in Forks, minus the vampires. I’m ready for some sun again, please!
