My ideal weekend would be...

Well, if I was able to plan a weekend, and I could choose any activities that I would want, I think the one we just had would be it.

So, what would the ideal weekend include?

Well, I'd leave work a little early on Friday. I'd pick Allyson up from daycare and head home where my husband would be waiting already showered and dressed to take us out for the evening.

Then, we'd head out to dinner. Anywhere is fine, as long as I'm not cooking! Then, we would take our little girl to a show.

We would have good seats!



Allyson would look really cute all dressed up like Minnie Mouse!


She would get to see all her favorite characters. We told her that Daisy was out sick. She wouldn't let it go until she got a reasonable answer!




All of us being together makes the evening so special!


Handy Manny

Pooh & Tigger

Allyson and her Prince Charming

She insisted on having a nose colored on!


And, on Saturday, we would spend the whole day shopping at Tanger Outlets in Locust Grove.

We would go to lunch. Shop. Shop for Allyson. Shop for me. (Mike didn't want anything. Curazy!) Shop for shoes. Shop. And, shop!


And, then, we'd go home and once again, we'd eat out (My ideal weekend does not include cooking!!)


On the way home we stopped at Buckner's in Jackson for dinner. Buckner's is an experience. You sit with strangers at a large round table with a lazy susan in the middle. You are served fried chicken, bar b que, rolls, cornbread, southern-style vegetables, and peach cobbler for dessert.
The food is delicious!
***************************************
Yep, that would be my ideal weekend. But, things don't always go so ideally!
A girl that worked at the show asked Allyson to come on stage with her to do the Hot Dog Dance. Allyson said no. Her daddy had just given her a box of popcorn. Of course the girl found someone else. Allyson bawled buckets of tears when she realized what she had said no to!
When we go to Tanger, I spent way too much money at the Gymboree Outlet store. I spent all of the money that I was supposed to spend for Allyson's Fall/Winter wardrobe and only bought TWO outfits. Ugh. I really need supervision in that store!!
At Buckner's, Mike almost walked out when he saw how much dinner was going to be. $13.95/person is kinda high. Bucker's should not have raised their prices!! Even if they do have AWESOME fried chicken!
So, what is on he agenda for the upcoming weekend? A two-day camping trip. Yes, in a tent. Please pray for good weather!
OH, AND BY THE WAY! Please pray for Mike's job situation. He has an interview on Thursday for a contractor job for technical writing. An office job!!! Oh, please pray and cross your fingers!!

That does sound like a perfect weekend!

She really did look cute all dressed up and the nose was the perfect touch.

I sure hope things work out with your hubby and the job situation!
