fun weekend

well aside from a few meltdowns from the girls...anyone interested in a couple of cute, but "spirited" girls???

Saturday, we went to the Dallas Zoo ~ yes, it was freezing cold and windy! Ava has wanted to ride the train (DART rail) and it stops right across the street from the zoo. We met Karri and Imogene there and had a nice time. Unfortunately because of the cold, there were not many animals out. But they have a fun children's area and we spent most of our time there.
I am going to see about getting a family membership to the zoo and other local venues - I would rather put money into that than another damn Barbie! LOL

Saturday night, Bridget came home and I was able to go pick up a couple of things that I bought from a DAMer. I decided not to rush back home - I needed some time to breathe. But it was too late to call anyone to meet for dinner or drinks, so I just went to Target and walked up and down all the aisles, looking at clearance stuff! HA HA! Yeah, I am pretty wild!! The good news is I only left there with a couple of packs of marked down notecards ($7) and got a few ideas for decorating the new house.

Sunday, we got free tickets to see Sesame Street Live at Nokia. It was pretty cool - we had suite tickets and VIP parking. But for this kind of show, it is better to be closer. The characters were walking the aisles and talking with the audience. Ava LOVED Prairie Dawn and was so sad that she couldn't hug her :( Ava and Zoe both loved the show - and I was just as excited when I saw the same "people" that I grew up with on the stage!
And FYI, the money we saved on tickets and parking were well spent on $10 Elmo balloons and overpriced chicken fingers :) But it was a fun time...

After a nice 2 hour nap with Zoe, I got motivated to clean. I am going through the toys and stuff and getting rid of what I can. I want to start fresh in the new place...everything in it's place kind of thing! Wish me luck!!

Computer is still off being repaired - so still no internet at home. But I should get it back this week with a new hard drive. It has actually been a nice break and I am trying to be more productive.


  1. fun and eventful weekend! Next time you go to the zoo, we want to join:)

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun :) I go to Target for my free time too - it is pretty wild! lol Still haven't seen any pics - I can't wait!

  3. we have a zoo membership, and I LOVE it!

  4. Fresh starts are good sometimes. :) It's one of my favorite things about moving- getting rid of unneeded items.
    Good luck with your move!

  5. Sounds like a good weekend to me! (yousuck) ;) Glad the girls enjoyed Sesame Street!
