{out & about}

Whew! I've had quite a day. I was a bit grumpy this morning after the kids left for school. I was grumpy to my hubby and my mom over the phone. I didn't want to be, but I was. Sorry guys. Anyway, my mom decided to come kidnap me in order to change my surroundings. That was a great idea. Since I was actually leaving the house, I begged her to take me to the Goodwill. My dad ended up coming along as well. I love a good outing with my parents.

I got my husband some clothes since he's dropping pounds like crazy. I also found some plates to spray paint. Don't worry...I'll post before and afters once I get it done...hopefully this week.

After Goodwill, my mom needed to go home for a while, so Dad took me to lunch. It was so good to be out and I love going to lunch with my Daddy. I guess I'm still a kid at heart. In a grown-up's body. With a broken ankle.

My hubby worked from home the second half of the day so I didn't even have to be home in time for the school bus. Mom, Dad & I watched my new movie obsession, Across the Universe. Then my friend Amy came to pick me up.

Amy is the only friend from high school that I still keep in touch with. I love me some Amy, that's for sure. No matter how long it has been since we've talked, it is always exactly the same. Just like we've talked everyday. We had a yummy take out dinner and she showed me her cute new rental house. We did a lot of catch-up talking and watched a little DVR'ed Oprah. What a great night.

All in all, I had a wonderful day! I'm so glad I am not grumpy anymore. I'm too tired to be grumpy anyway. I've done more moving and shaking today than I've done since I broke that darn ankle.

Thanks everyone for helping me have a great, fun day! Especially hubby for coming home so I could go out. That guy really rocks and I love him tons!

8 love notes to me!:

I love when my husband comes home early so I can do some things I need to do! Just getting out for a couple of hours can renew a spirit to take on the next day!

Have a great day!

That sounds like fun. Dave just kidnapped the kids for me, so what am I doing in my alone time? Blogging UNINTERRUPTED! (of course:) Our husbands must know when we need that time away. It must be genetic! A lunch with dad, I would love that too!

Hey, Jen! I just got home from shopping for my hubby who has been losing lots of weight, too. His pants are threatening to fall down any day now. Ha.

I was an English major, too, and they never covered any Jane Austen books at my school, either. I read P&P on my own. I'm a total Austen nerd. I've read all of her books 2 or 3 times and have lots of the movie versions on DVD.

Have a great weekend! -Julia :-)

You are right, there are a lot of similarities in our blog headers, and our names (cool name by the way!) Our heads must be in the same place! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Your hubby is a keeper, especially since he's agreeing to 2 GNOs in one week! :)
