This weekend - not my best yet.

It should have been pretty awesome though. It was my husband's birthday on Saturday (he and I are the same age for 3 weeks, until I turn one year older than him, so I love when his birthday finally comes around), and then it was our 6th wedding anniversary today. How did we spend both? This is where the "meh" comes in.

Friday: cute halloween party and parade at daycare. My kid was the cutest Tigger that school - nah, this town - has ever seen. Hands down. Mel's book reading in NJ was cancelled (poor Mel & her family, suffering from H1N1 flu), so we decided we'd do my husband's birthday that night. With kid in tow, we went to a super classy dinner at Friendly's, where we celebrated (aka embarrassed the shit out of my husband) with the singing waitstaff. (Seriously, who is still embarrassed by that stuff??) Gave my husband his birthday present ... a Yankees jersey, because on ...

Saturday: he had tickets to the (hopefully final) Yankees game (until they make the World Series that is). Except, if you're from the NY metro area, you're probably still drying off after the downpour yesterday afternoon and evening. But they had no way of knowing if it would be postponed for sure, so he left in the afternoon for the game that evening, just in case. And of course the game was postponed. Until today, our anniversary.

Those bastards.

We had lunch reservations (at a non-kid friendly place), a movie picked out, and a babysitter lined up for this afternoon. All cancelled.

Here's the bright side. Cause I'm a bright side kind of gal. I got some great quality mommy-kiddo time in this weekend, and I also got to rent a movie that I thought my husband would hate. I always do that when he is out or away. This time it was 17 Again, and it was freaking awesome. I'm trying to figure out why I liked it so much - you'd think it was because Chandler Bing was in it (huge crush), but he was barely in it. And I tend to like slightly edgier movies than this one. I guess I just thought it was really funny and touching, and in my old age I'm appreciating the family dynamic movie thing more.

Plus I got to take a nap today, and my husband was around for most of the day.

Hopefully we'll have a do-over of our anniversary next weekend. We held back our presents to each other in hopes that we can align the lunch/movie/babysitter thing for Sunday.


  1. Ahh yes, living in Seattle I can sympathize with how ANNOYING the rain can be. But here we are used to it and don't bother making plans expecting weather to cooperate. I'm sorry your anniversary was rained out, but now at least you still get to look forward to celebrating!

  2. I'm glad you had good parts to your weekend even if it wasn't as you had planned! Good job on looking at the bright side!

  3. Sorry your weekend didn't turn out the way you had hoped, but it sounds like you made the best of it!

  4. Sounds like a full weekend! And it may not have been what you planned, but just as good.

  5. Bummer on the rain!!! I am sure the make-up celebration will be fantastic though! Happy Anniversary!
