Thelma & Louise and Vera

Had another great weekend!  One of those relaxing weekends where we didn't have too terribly much to do but still got a lot done. 

Friday night we had a movie night.  We had pizza and rented the Hunger Games.  I read all 3 books and liked the movie, too.  Saturday night we watched Thelma & Louise.  I am embarrassed to admit I had never, ever seen it! 

KJ had a vball tournament Saturday.  Actually, it was an 8th grade tournament and the 7th grade girls had to pitch in, take care of trash, keep the school clean, etc.  I helped out in the hospitality room and was at the school from 7:30 AM until about 3 PM.  KJ ended up going home with a friend after the tournament (shooting off BB guns) and then they came back to our house for a sleepover.  KJ's room was an absolute mess and her sweet friend helped her clean and organize.  I am SO over her bedroom and just don't have the energy to fight with her about it anymore. 

Cosmo made us breakfast this morning (and lunch and dinner!).  Honestly, if it was up to me, we'd eat cereal every night.  I absolutely, positively HATE to cook.  He also went grocery shopping this afternoon while I dismantled my beach-themed dining room table and foyer table and started my football theme.  It's still a work in progress but looks really great so far!

Spoke to T-bone a couple of times this weekend.  Friday she went to a party and the weather was kind of crappy in Oxford Saturday afternoon so she & a couple of girls walked to the Square and did some shopping.  From there they took the bus to Wal-mart and back.  She said she's barely used her car since move-in.  Today they had water parties which sounded interesting.  Some houses she felt extremely welcome, other gave off a different vibe.  Not bad, just different.  She's having a good time meeting people and really likes her classes so far.  It's all good!

I think it's time for her to start to think about a new Vera Bradley pattern.  LCM bought her a Java Blue bag for her 12th or 13th birthday.  She has a lot pieces -- large duffel, small duffel, ditty bag, etc.  I noticed at move-in her large duffel was getting a hole in the side and she said her ditty bag has a tear in the plastic liner.  Those bags have a lot of mileage on them and have taken her, literally, around the world.
