After the movie Mom and I went to my grandmother's house and Forrest and Davis (who had ridden to Bham with Forrest to mountain bike while Forrest was at the conference) were there too. While we picked up my grandmother and headed to Mass, Forrest and Davis got ready to meet Jonathan and Denise at J. Clydes for dinner. When we were at Supper Club a week or so ago, J and D mentioned that they wanted to go see Ira Glass in Birmingham at UAB. As luck would have it, Forrest and Davis already had tickets for the show, and even better than that, Forrest gets discounts tickets since he is a UAB student. The date was set after that! They all had a great time at the show and said Ira Glass was really humorous. Now we are itching to see David Sedaris later this spring! While they were at the show, I went back to Gadsden with my mom and then went to meet Farrah for dinner at El Tapatio. Other than the fact that we really wanted a girls' night, we needed to get together to discuss our table for the Girlfriend Gala later this spring. We had so much fun brainstorming! I can't wait to see our ideas come to life! We stayed at the restaurant for 2 1/2 hours, just laughing and having a ball!
On Sunday, I didn't get out of bed until 1pm!! This was not because I wasn't awake, it was just because I had nothing better to do! I loved every minute of it! Forrest got up and worked out and even took Sonny on a run before I woke up, but once I was awake I wanted him to come hang with me! We ate lunch in bed and just lounged around until we couldn't lounge any more! When we decided we were being too lazy, I dropped Forrest off at a bike race that was going on near the park and I went to the office to work on a photo book that I got free from Shutterfly. We got back home and decided it was too pretty a day to stay indoors, so we took the dogs on a walk, something we haven't done in so long (well, I guess except our walk in the snow). The weather was great and it felt so nice to do something active outside for a change. Now we are all spoiled and have already started to discuss trips to the lake! Come on warm weather, head our way!!
Later that night, we went to my mom and dad's for dinner to celebrate my cousin Sara's 16th birthday! We always call her "Super Bowl" Sara because she was born right in the middle of the ballgame! It was great to spend time with the "other" McCords, especially since we got to have cake and ice cream! :) She also told us that because she took and passed driver's ed, she doesn't even have to take the driving test! Now this is a new rule!! I remember driving out to take the test on the little course---SCARY! Now they have taken the fun out of it!! :) Apparently all you have to worry about on the day you get your license is what you are going to wear for the picture. I am not sure what I think about this new rule at all!!!
Anyway, hope you all have a great week!
