Night Out

With Waylon and I working so much during the evenings and weekends, it is hard to get time away with our friends or to ourselves. So Friday night, Waylon went with his buddies to a live NFL draft and Saturday night, I went to dinner with my girls, the Pink Ladies. The Pink Ladies are my friends that I worked with at Papa's on the Lake many moons ago. I have to say that college was awesome but my Papa's days were the very best! Over the last 8 years, our dinners started out monthly and have drifted to a few times a year. The majority of us are married or have kids so it is difficult to get us all together. We missed you Cassie and Eva!

I love you girls!!!!!

I knew the day would come when Austin wanted to pick out his own clothes or shoes. The day has come! There is a little boy in his class, Braydon, who Austin calls "Draydon". He recently got some new Sketchers. Some how or another, Austin has been calling them "bysketchers". If If I call them Sketchers or shoes, he corrects me and says they are bysketchers. He has been talking about these for over a week. I recently took him shopping for shoes and he wanted nothing but bysketchers. It was frustrating because I had no idea what these darn things looked like. He did say that they had a "number" on them.

I was dropping him off at school on Monday and he said, "Mom, member to look at Draydon's bysketchers." I hunted Braydon down and took a good look at his shoes. I am not really fond of black tennis shoes or shoes with characters on them but these aren't that bad. After looking on the Internet, I found them on sale at Sears and sure enough there is a big "S" on the side of them. We went that afternoon (I had to give in because it was so freaking cute and he really needed a pair of shoes for school!) I have never seen him so excited! When you child tries on a pair of shoes and screams, "YEAHHHH!" in the middle of the store, you know you made the right decision. As soon as we got home, he put them on, wore them with his PJ's and to bed. He woke up not long after falling asleep and said that his feet were hot. I took off the shoes but he wanted them to lay right next to him. He is so proud of his bysketchers.

Quick Update

Things have been pretty busy around the here. Waylon has been working really long hours and I also have been working more nights. Our weekends are also jam-packed with tons of stuff. This weekend we had two birthday parties. One was for my nephew, Anthony and the other was for Austin's friend, Daniella. Austin geared up early for Daniella's party which was at Chuck E Cheese on Sunday.

This cup is a genius idea

Samantha, Daniella and Austin

Daniella and Samantha will be moving to Canada in a few days. They are the daughters of my friend and co-worker, Kerri. Austin has become so close with these girls as they have been around him since he was a baby. He calls them his sisters.
Fernandez Girls, we love you and are going to miss you so very much!
