Friday evening we stayed in, I cooked dinner, and we watched the Opening Ceremony for the London Olympics. I have to admit, after the whole Industrial Revolution I kind of lost interest...I fell asleep on the couch and Hubby woke me up as the parade of nations began. We headed to bed basically right after the US entered the arena...just wasn't all that impressed with the production.
Saturday Hubby & I both had the day off and I was desperately needing a Momma Morning. I headed out leaving Hubby at home with Elyse & went shopping all by myself. I bought Elyse a few new board books at Barnes & Noble, went to Hobby Lobby and picked up a few things for a quick Pinterest craft, and went to Banana Republic to window shop. I got home around lunchtime and honestly felt so refreshed. It was amazing what a couple of hours did for me when I didn't have to worry about Elyse's nap time, or when she needed to eat, or what I was going to do to entertain her.
I'm so stinkin' grateful for my amazing hubby!

One of the glorious things about Hubby's parents being so close now is that we have a second set of "free" babysitters! We dropped her off about 4:30 and headed off to run a few errands before catching a movie. We watched the Dark Knight Rises and both really enjoyed it. It wasn't your typical movie-going experience either...we watched it from comfortable recliners were waitresses brought our dinner and waited on us hand & foot! One of the new local theaters has 2 suite-style theaters that are reserved for 21+, have about 50 seats per theater, and include in-theater dining. It was such a fun experience and we'll definitely be going back!

Sunday was reserved for church & relaxation at home. After church we headed to Target for a few Elyse-related items, and then grabbed lunch at Houlihan's. That is seriously one of our favorite local chain-restaurants. They have so much yummy stuff to eat!
