Weekend Recap: Getting Dirty

Getting Dirty was kinda the theme of this past weekend...

On Friday, the girls and I met up for some Mexican food and a night at the theater...and by theater I mean "Dirty Dancing" On Stage! It was pretty much identical to the movie, but something about it being on stage made it extremely a bit more comical. I may or may not have let out a LOUD giggle snort during one of the scenes. Speaking of snorts, I do it all the time now. Is that something that just gets worse with age?

Soooo good but nothing is better than the classic. Patrick Swayze will always be the hottest!
And, of course, we bought souviners #icarriedawatermelon #nobodyputsbabyinacorner

The next morning got started with an early WOD. My MUPs (Muscle Ups) are a work in progress so I substituted transition work for them in the WOD. Finished in 25:14. It was a grinder. 

Following my sweat session, I finally unpacked from the wedding and honeymoon much to Josh's amazement. I am pretty sure he had already decided that he was going to have to live with my suitcase in the bedroom forever. It is so nice to be organized again. I am usually a neat freak, but since I didn't have any place for my stuff to go it made unpacking more difficult.

After a quick breakfast, Josh, Walter and I loaded up the car and made our way to House Softball League Tournament. The second we got to the field it started to rain. Walter didn't care (and neither did the tournament organizers). He played in the mud, ran in the wet grass, and enjoyed getting lots of attention from all of the players. After Josh's first game (which they won), we decided to take home our wet and dirty Corgi.
After I forewarned him that a bath was in his future...he was not pleased.
Walter did not love his bath but he his coat was so shiny after!
After Walter's sink bath, Josh went back to the tournament while the pup and I took naps. After an afternoon of playing, Walter was exhausted and so was I!

That night our Aggie friends and Josh's Softball Team came over for the Aggie Game. During the game we took breaks to hop in the hot tub, devour some pizza, and visit. It was a great night with great friends and an Aggie Victory made it even better!

On Sunday we slept in and then embarked on a marathon of errand running which included trips to: Petco, Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Goods (love that place), William Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and the Container Store. Phew! 80% of our errands revolved around returning damaged wedding gifts. Everyone was so great to work with and made the exchange process a piece of cake. Holla!
Walter would love all of these!

Our final errand was at Eastern Market to pick up some money I had made selling my old clothes at the resale boutique. We were 52 dollars richer and celebrated with homemade ice cream. It was the bomb dot com. 

Coffee Oreo

After Mass, we were finally able to go home and give Walter his new toy. Every time I walk into the pet store I want to get him everything something new. 

We spent our evening working on thank you notes while watching the Miss America Pageant. After the interview portion, I knew that Miss New York was going to win. Back when we were in NYC in July, we saw Miss New York. I thought about asking her to take a picture with us and then decided against it. I have been kicking myself ever since she won last night. Lesson Learned: always get the picture with the pageant girl in front of you!
