Weekend wrap-up

Last weekend was my last weekend as a single woman! WooHoo!!

Friday night Jamie and I just relaxed and had our own little happy hour on our back deck even though it was still hot as all get up!

Saturday I picked the kiddos up from their dad's and we had a quick breakfast at Panera before they went out of town for a couple of days. We also stopped at Five Below and I picked up oodles of new chapsticks. I may be slightly addicted to Blistex.When I got back home I tried a couple of the new Bud Light LimeARitas Jamie had brought home - pretty tasty!

We finally headed out and and our 1st stop was the wedding cake baker to bring directions to the boat and then we went a few doors down to Hobby Lobby. THAT is the coolest store. Right up there with Ikea in my book! We wandered around and around. We came out with the picture frames we were looking for and the cake knife and the unity candle for the wedding but we also came out with other cool stuff! We found our place cards, a really cool picture/sign for our home we plan to put up sometime after our wedding, some make-up bags for the bridesmaids gifts and other stuff I can't remember now. That's definitely a store I want to return to when I have more money and time! We were starving by the time we finished there so we stopped at McD's for a cheeseburger and fries before we hit the CASINO!!

We went to the new Maryland Live Casino at Arundel Mills. Luckily they built a parking garage with the casino because parking at that mall already sucked but they've only completed one set of elevators. The line for the elevator wasn't organized at all so we just ended up taking the stairs down and then back up later the 5 flights in 100+ degree heat. Yuck.

The casino was fun. I usually play the penny slots and there were tons to choose from. The penny slots there are set up with a minimum 30 cent bid and go up in increments of 30 cents - unlike Vegas and Atlantic City where you truly can gamble one penny and pretty much any other increment you want per game. We had a couple of drinks there while we lost some/won some. We wanted to go to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner but at 9:30 pm the hostess said there was a waiting list with 20 people already on it and people probably wouldn't begin leaving until after some 10:00 UFC fight. So we wandered next door to the old standby Chevys. We paced ourselves on the chips and salsa so we wouldn't be too stuffed for dinner. I had the fish tacos and chose the salmon instead of tilapia. They were good and I was stuffed!

Sunday Jamie & I went to the nail salon for pedis (getting honeymoon ready) and I wanted a new full set (getting my fingers camera ready for our big day). Then we went back to Arundel Mills Mall. We used a giftcard for lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse. I had a skinny blackberry sangria that was yummy and a raspberry pecan salad with a loaded baked potato.

We split an appetizer of firecracker chicken. We wanted the bacon wrapped potato wedges but they were out of bacon. After we ate we headed to the mall to get some "honeymoon clothes". On the way home we stopped at Redbox and got "One for the Money" with Katherine Heigl.  It was pretty cute. We also stopped at Dairy Queen and got blizzards... that was basically my dinner.
Monday was back-to-work as usual for me. It's going to be a fast, short week. My mom flies in from Seattle on Wednesday night and I'm off Friday for wedding prep and then the wedding is on SATURDAY!!
