Labor Day!

Well we have nothing too exciting going on for the weekend. We went to Kris' cousin Daniel's wedding on Saturday. It was a small backyard wedding, and the rain held out. It was much different from our own wedding, but it seemed to fit them so that is what matters. They had a port-a-potty set up behind a shed (creepy!), they had karaoke, it was a potluck meal and everyone except Kris' family was walking around smoking and drinking beer from the cans. Very down home. The colors were pretty I thought, white, burgundy and a chocolate brown, very fall like. Oh and I ran into a groomsmen right away who was the roommate of this loser I dated 2 years ago. That was awkward. I mean he was nice and all and actually helped me ditch the loser, but still weird to run into someone like that. I did enjoy introducing him to my husband and telling him I was due in 4 weeks. :) We learned that he is related to my husband, he is a cousin on the other side of the family. Small world... I just enjoyed being able to dress up a little and go somewhere with my handsome husband.

Yesterday Kris had to work and I stayed home and got some stuff accomplished. I got a load of baby laundry done, all his baby shower clothes and blankets and his coming home outfit. Got his coming home and hospital stuff packed up too. I cried a bit while folding it all. It's all soo tiny and it just hit me how quickly this pregnancy has gone and how soon he will be wearing those tiny clothes. I just got a bit overwhelmed I guess with all sorts of emotions. I am going to do his bedding and the few dark pieces of clothes today and then I will be all done and will have all the clothes organized! Yay!

Today Kris started working on his car, it for some reason wouldn't start when we tried the other day, and he had no luck. He doesn't have his tools here so it's gonna be towed today to his parents where he can properly fix it. AAA was super confused when Kris was telling them he didn't want it towed to a shop he was gonna fix it himself. It makes me laugh. We seriously will never have to go to a mechanic again, I love having a husband who can fix all things cars and can do our monthly checks. He even rotates my tires with the electric thingy that race car pits use. It's fun to time him. It was however very sad to see "Scoobie" on a flat bed tow truck.

This afternoon Kris, dad and I are going to the cheap theater (only $3ea) to see Night at the Museum 2. I'm kinda excited, I enjoyed the first one and at least it will get us out of the house. After the movie we are going to just grill some hot dogs and polish dogs. I made this very yummy pasta salad too. It was raditore pasta, black beans, garbanzo beans, corn and this Mediterranean dressing I made. The dressing was one of those dry packet mixes I have had in my cupboard for honestly a few years. I mixed it up with mayo, water, olive oil, lemon juice and some salt and pepper. It turned out much better than I thought. I hope the salad is a hit, I may even take a picture of it because it looks so pretty. I really just needed a side dish that used up stuff I had sitting around! Who knew throw it together would turn out so well!

That's about all for now. Nothing too exciting going on, just life.

Must be nice having a handy hubby. When our car breaks mine does one of two things: asks me what I think is wrong with it (although I never ever have any idea), or asks me to ask my dad what's wrong with it (which he can often accurately speculate about from a distance). My dad's advice helps b/c otherwise, my husband is duped as easily as a woman when he goes into the mechanic. At least w/my dad's speculation he can toss around a few catch phrases and fancy "car" words to make them think he has an idea what he's talking about. It's all a facade; he is clueless! Thanks for stopping by PBD so much, love you comments:)
