Saturday Classes

So do any of you out there have significant others or spouses in school?  I have probably mentioned in past posts that the Husband is currently back in school working on his degree.  This semester he has been taking an online class and now he has just started a Saturday class that lasts for 8 weeks.  The Saturday class he attends is all day and is about 2 hrs. and 15 min. away from where we live.  Poor guy!

So since he has this class on Saturday I have been trying to find things to do to keep me occupied.  Not that I need the Husband to entertain me but the weekends are when we get to spend time together and since I am cooped up in the house all week, working from home, I like to get out and do things.

I have found some Groupon, LivingSocial deals, ect. that I have been purchasing so that I can schedule some appointments for some pampering.  A nice way to have some me time!

So what have I been doing to keep myself busy?  As you saw in a previous post, one Saturday my mom came over to hang out and help me get some things done around our place.  This Saturday though I took myself out on a date!

I started the morning off with a massage (unfortunately no Groupon was used for this, I bit the bullet and paid full price).  I really needed one, I was getting cranky and it had been awhile since I had one.  Then it was back home to drop off a diet coke for Turtle and talk for a few minutes.  Then I was off again to take myself out to lunch.  Destination Buffalo Wild Wings, I was craving some of their popcorn shrimp.  The Husband is not a huge fan, kind of messes with his stomach, so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to go.  Then it was off to Kohl's to spend some Kohl's cash (Shout out to Turtle for giving me the Kohl's cash to use).

After all of that I was going to come home and work on some laundry, I heard it screaming my name, instead I plopped down on the couch with a good book to read and relax.  Then I thought about working around the house some more, I mean really why can't this stuff get done on its own?  However, the Husband called and was on his way home, so he wanted me to meet him about 1/2 way to have a dinner date at Olive Garden.  How could I refuse the man I love right?  My hottie husband wanted to have a date night and tell me about his day at class.  Off to Olive Garden I went, dang GPS system got me lost too but that is okay I finally found my way to the Husband.

I guess I did not get much down around the house but I did have a great day by myself!  Now just to figure out what I am going to do for the next six Saturdays that he has class.

No plans yet for next Saturday.  Any ideas or suggestions?

Things That Go Bump In The Night

Are you afraid of the dark?  Boo!

As Halloween is fast approaching there are so many activities and things that you can go and do.  Have you visited a haunted house this year?  I did.  My friend  Turtle and I went to visit one on Friday.

I saw a deal on MyPerks for multiple haunted houses one day and asked the Husband if he wanted to go and he said no, why don't you ask Turtle.  So I asked Turtle and she was in!

Friday we decided to have a girl's night out and go and visit FEARgrounds.  It is located at the Hendricks County 4-H fairgrounds in Danville, IN.  Now I was not sure how scary or great this haunted house would be but I figured why not give it a try.  Turtle and I were not disappointed!  This thing was huge and was scary.  They did an awesome job!  There was some hand holding, some screaming and a little dance (sorry Turtle).

So are you up to the challenge?  Are you afraid of things that go bump in the night?  Will you be visiting a haunted house this season?  I dare you!

Awesome Weekend

This weekend was awesome!  I really had a great weekend!  Lately I have been feeling stressed with work, things that I need to get done and just life in general.  I am not sure why I have been feeling this way but this weekend I enjoyed myself and tried to relax.

It was a busy and fulfilling weekend.  I will break it down for you.

Friday - My parents and I bought a DealChicken for $23.00 per person to go and see the Fever (Indiana's WNBA team) play at Conseco Field house in their third game of the playoffs against the Lynx.  The deal included tickets, a hot dog, Pepsi and a t-shirt.  Not a bad deal!  The Husband is not really a basketball fan and since he had an all day class the next day, which was a 2 1/2 hr. drive away, he decided not to join us.  So off my parents and I went on Friday night to attend the game.  And what an awesome game it was.  The Fever slaughtered the Lynx!  Our seats were fantastic!  I really enjoyed going to the game.  If you have never been to a Fever game or a WNBA game, I suggest you go.  These ladies are really good and I think I enjoy watching them more then I do the men!  Since I knew the game would end late I had already decided that I would stay at my parents house that night.  After the game we headed home to their house and then watched and episode of Law and Order: SVU.

Saturday:  Since the Husband had class on Saturday and my mom was off of work we had decided to have a mother/daughter day.  Originally we had thought about going to one of the covered bridge festivals but since the weather was crummy and we knew that it would be super busy on Saturday we decided to forgo that plan.  Instead we went to a small craft fair (it was not that great) and then headed to my place to work on some things.  Yes, I am still unpacking some boxes!  We got a couple of misc. boxes unpacked and some stuff put away.  We actually had a very productive day and I felt so much better about getting some things done.

Sunday:  Originally I was going to babysit for some friend's two little girls but they ended up not needing me to watch them.  So I ended up making spaghetti with my husband for lunch and watching a bit of tv with him. I was going to do some more housework but since he was working on some homework I actually ended up falling asleep and taking a nap.  It was nice to be able to relax and do that!  When I woke up he was still working on homework so I decided to leave him in peace and head over to my friend's house (where I was originally going to babysit) and hand out with her and Ladybug (her three year old daughter).  Ladybug is so adorable and entertaining.  We planted rocks, yes I typed rocks, drew on the driveway with chalk and blew bubbles.  After that I met the Husband at my parents house and we went with my parents to dinner at Apezza, we had purchased a Groupon. The food was excellent there, no complaints.  It is somewhere that we would go back to.  Then it was back to my parents house.  The Husband headed home and I stayed to watch the fourth fever game with my parents.  Hoping that they would win.  It was a close game, I think my blood pressure spiked but the ladies did not disappoint and it was a win!  They won the playoffs.  Then it was back home.

So I am glad that I am feeling very relaxed, even though it was a busy weekend!  Of course I am sure you noticed there were some deals in there.  You know how I love my deal sites!

Watch for a post soon about our Cincinnati trip from a couple of weekends ago.  I am falling a bit behind on my blog posts. :-)

Hope that everyone else had a wonderful weekend!
