I'm Married to Popeye

You know the song that came out a long time ago (and wasn't good), "Where have all the cowboys gone?" Change the word "cowboys" to "weekends" and you have the question I keep asking myself.

We were blessed with a 3-day weekend so Michael and I decided we'd spend Friday in our pajamas cleaning the house and being lazy. Michael called his parents to find out when they'd be arriving on Saturday and was surprised with the news that they were already on the road driving to Tulsa. He quickly got off the phone and the laidback day of cleaning turned into a frantic rush to get everything ready (including ourselves) before they arrived. We were able to clean up before they arrived and even had a few minutes to spare. After hanging around the house, the 4 of us went to dinner at Gina and Guiseppe's and had a nice time catching up.

Can we talk about March Madness for a second? And how Michael and I both filled out a bracket? And how I am beating him at the moment? Ok, the moment has passed...

Saturday morning my parents joined the festivities and the 6 of us tried a hole-in-the-wall bbq place for lunch. It was fantastic! I can't even remember how the bbq tasted but the fried okra was delicious! It is good to know I have an okra fix less than 5 miles from my house. The girls split up for a bit and went to Utica to pick out a baby gift for Leah's shower and then joined the boys for an afternoon of, you guessed it, basketball. Michael and I wanted to prove to our parents that we do actually use the wedding gifts we were given so we made dinner for the parents. It was a mexican fiesta with tacos, refried beans, cheese and guacamole dip, etc. We had a nice time cooking it and then Michael ran off to a surprise birthday party.

Sunday morning (Hoppy Easter!) we went to the 9:30a service and enjoyed a great sermon. Afterwards we had a nice brunch at Red Rock Canyon. My parents are like us and enjoy having Sunday afternoon to relax before the week begins so they left pretty early (around 1p). Michael's parents watched the Texas game and then took off as well. And then Michael and I watched 4 (yes, 4) episodes of Lost from season 1. What a great show! We have several friends who bring up events from the show so we finally decided it was time to join the rest of the world and find out what we'd been missing. I really like the show, Michael LOVES the show. It is a great conversation piece--we have brought it up amongst ourselves several times and have had some great discussions.

Before I forget, Dad took our annual outdoor Easter pictures. I do believe mom, Michael, and I have the 3 most sensitive sets of eyes this side of the Atlantic ocean (ha) so the pictures turned out, once again, dreadful. Mom's and my eyes were non-existent but Michael's face was classic. Please see below (I realize it is not him, nor was he punching the camera, but the eyes are identical):

And that is all I have for today. Should be a pretty laidback week and then I have a leadership retreat all weekend. I know it will be good for me to attend but I can't say I'm too excited about it now. Actually my excitement level is at a 1 (on a scale from 1 to 93). At least I have a positive attitude, right? HA!
