Alise and I had the evening to ourselves, so we cuddled up on the couch with sandwiches - and soup! - and watched a few episodes of Gilmore Girls! I swear, season five will never end! But we had a great time just hanging out together.
It was killing my soul that I was missing Steph's game in Mississippi! This was the weekend we had promised we would be in Oxford for her game and of course we had a conflict because Alise was playing. I was looking forward to going back to John Grisham's home town, but Steph understood, and the game was actually on the SEC Network. So while Alise was playing "live," I was watching ULM play on my phone. It was the first time I had ever watched my girls at the same time and it was a little weird, but fun!
Alise's BFF came home with us after the game and after getting the girls something to eat, Wayne and I spent the rest of the afternoon Christmas shopping. Three schools in our area were at the state championship football games in NOLA and the stores were still cray-zee!! Wayne was a good sport, though, and carried my bags for me! I think I'll keep him! After shopping, we ran home, got our fancy clothes on and went out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants!
On Sunday, I didn't even get out of my pajamas until 4:00! That's when I carried a lasagna I had made earlier in the day to Dani for her and her family. Alise and I studied for her math final, watched Gilmore Girls, and napped most of the day. I couldn't believe how much the weather had changed! Friday and Saturday was oh-so cold and yesterday I think it was in the high 60's. We're all going to be sick in time for Christmas!
I saw this on social media this weekend and it made me smile. Y'all know how much I admired Princess Diana and to see Kate wear her favorite tiara made me smile.
Welp! This is the first year of mid-terms/finals for Baby Girl! Luckily, most of hers are not comprehensive and her grades are good enough that I'm not overly worried. Except math, so we'll be working hot and heavy on that subject until the exam on Wednesday! That is also our last day of school for the year, so y'all know that it can't get here quick enough for me!
Bring on Christmas!
