Sweet & Sour

Ok, well, the pictures fell through on Saturday when Mike's entire family (with the exception of his mother) got sick...very sick. We all thought they had the swine flu!!! They are much better now, but since we didn't get our pics taken, Mike and I met my parents at the lake to cruise on my dad's boat and ride their jet-ski. It was really fun and the best way to spend the day in the sun!!! Afterwards, we rushed home to get ready for an upsetting night at my parents' house to watch the UFC 100. Brock Lesnar BEAT the heck outta Frank Mir & created a mockery of the sport. It was awful and the whole night was off. Sunday was a relaxation day for Mike & I. We met his parents for brunch at O'Charleys and then went home where we didn't come out of reclusion until we woke up this morning to go to work.

UFC 100

Another busy busy weekend ahead...

I have an important meeting at work on a SATURDAY at 10am...YIKES!! :) I have to head home directly afterwards to get ready for family portraits that afternoon with UFC 100 following that night!!!!!!! Mike has been talking about this since March when we went to Columbus, OH to watch it live. He has been so psyched and can hardly stand to sit for 5 minutes without discussing some extent of Ultimate Fighting; this is supposed to be the best card of the year (or so I've heard). I must say I am looking forward to it as's a great time hanging out with my family which we hardly get to be with my parents due to dad's work schedule (he's on swing shift) and Joey's busy extracurriculars.

Independence Day Weekend

Wow! What a weekend! Mike and I had his nephey, Payton, this weekend from Thursday night thru Saturday night. We woke up early on Friday morning to take Payton & Joey to Stone Mountain where Mike & Joe waited for 90 minutes to do the SkyHike where it was supposed to take another 2 hours to complete. In the meantime, Payton & I went to climb logs & play in the small creek after we watched the Journey to the Center of the Earth in 4D (Which he LOVED). Afterwards, we decided to take the Scenic Railroad (Thomas the Train's Friend ;) ) while Payton napped. We spent the rest of the day on the lawn waiting on the laser show to begin with fireworks following.

Saturday was just as busy (if not busier) with a Marta ride to the zoo and back to Centennial Olympic park to watch the fireworks there. We took Payton down to the ring of fountains to play and it was PACKED OUT! We were a little nervous since we didn't want to get wet & we were having to watch Payton with 100s of other children without doing so. :) The fireworks were a little bit of a letdown from Stone Mountain's firework show, but it was fun nonetheless. After the show ended, a drunk & stoned-out-of-her-mind woman came up to use our cell phone because she had lost her husband. We had to wait with this 40-something year old woman while she found him. Needless to say, we didn't get out of the park until just about everyone else had left...bummer! We dropped Payton off with his parents & went home to sleep until noon.

Sunday was a day of relaxation! We did some laundry, watched 2 movies & I never even came out of my pajamas. MUCH NEEDED!
