We slept in, and it was SO nice. Captain America hopped out of bed at 8:38am, realizing that his alarm didn't go off, and that he needed to have Tom to the football game by 9am. Yeah, they were gonna be a bit late. Luckily, Tom was up and mostly ready. They headed out at 9:05am. The game didn't start till 10am, but coach wanted them there at 9am. So it wasn't too bad.
Me? What did I do? I got my shopping list together, and headed out to the commissary. I think it was almost 10am when I left. I was wearing army sweat pants, an oversized hoodie, a teal bandana, zebra striped flip flops, and no make up. Yeah, I was beautiful :) And Hilary came too! In her work out clothes. We're quite the pair - LOL!
I got all the food that I needed for the week, AND some household stuff. Like deodorant and room spray and spray cleaner and tooth paste and such. AND, I still came in almost $20 under budget. Sa-weet!
While shopping, Hilary said how Paul (her hubby) was going stir crazy being stuck in the house. He'd had major knee surgery last week, and hadn't really left the house much. I invited them to go out with Captain America and I for lunch! It would be a fun thing for us to do, I thought.
So, we went home, I put my groceries away (with the help of Joe, Jim, and Jake), and got ready for lunch. I showered, and got all ready. Captain America and Tom got home shortly after that. We decided on 2pm at Cheddars. Captain America had time to go run sprints, and take a shower. So he was happy.
Emeline was still at Veronicas house, so we left the boys at home with Jake, and headed to the restaurant. We pulled into the parking lot same time as Hilary and Paul. Good timing, right?
It was a pretty fun and enjoyable lunch. The guys talked, the girls talked, we ate, we laughed, they watched sports on the TV's. hehehe. Captain America ordered Salmon, with 2 veggie sides and a salad. Paul got chicken fingers, with a salad. Hilary and I both got creamy potato soup, a salad, and 1/2 a sandwich. It was pretty tasty. I'd come back to Cheddars.
After lunch, Captain America and I headed back home. We swung by a "Cowboy" store to check it out, called "Cowtown". We were there FOREVER, but Captain America was having fun. I was snapping photos with my cell phone, and texting my friends.
He tried on SO many pairs of boots. Really, they had a HUGE selection.
So after the boots, we went and looked at the hats for a long time. Captain America wanted to get a cowboy hat, but not an expensive one. He settled on this one. It's made of palm leaves, or something like that. Cant remember. It's not straw, though. He liked it :)
And I tried one on, but, um, yeah, I'm not a hat person...... AT ALL! hehehe
I'm gonna start my diet up again on Monday (I know, you don't believe me - hehehe), so we decided to go to Cold Stone. Cause I like it :) Captain America got a blueberry smoothie, and I got a "Signature Berry Cheesecake" ice cream. OMGosh, it was divine. We got a big one, and Captain America and I shared. I'm not big on blueberry, so I didn't want any of his shake. We sat outside in the sunshine and ate our snack. It was fun :)
We headed home, and hung with the kids. We made dinner (if you count pouring Captain Crunch into a bowl "making"), and all sat together at the table and ate. Then Captain America went to wash the car, and I went in the backyard with a few kids to pull the weeds. The back sprinkler is broken, so the ground is VERY wet. Perfect for pulling weeds, you know :) Joe and Jim and Eme and I had a lot of fun pulling weeds together.
Jake and Tom worked on their inside chores, and played with the neighbor kid for a while. At around 8pm, we sent the extra kids home, and had people get ready for bed. Baths and such. It's 8:38pm, and I'm blogging, and I can hear Captain America in the living room, reading night time stories to the kids. Life is good :)
