Friday night I had a girl's night to go to. I haven't had a girl's night since college I don't thing (mom's and sisters don't count) and obviously I have no mom friends (except you L). So I had to go. It was one of those bittersweet things. Like bitterly, I would have to be really outgoing and probably kind of awkward sometimes, but sweet because maybe I would make friends. But I was off-and-on about it all day. But by the time McKay got home, I was whining and saying McKay...I really just want to go get dessert. So he made a Melting Pot reservation. But the next minute, I was thinking enough of having no friends! So I went upstairs, got dressed and got in the car. Off to my girls night. But THEN, due to the obnoxious fog, I couldn't find the house, soooo
OFF TO THE MELTING POT.
Which was awesome! The perfect family Friday. It was McKay's first time. And Jax looooved it.
And for the millionth time in my life I had an epiphany: all I really need is chocolate.
(just kidding, if you're reading this girls...pleaseinvitemenexttime)
Okay, on to the next thing.
Thursday I was in Seattle with my mom for my Mammogram (for the BRCA 2 stuff, no big deal). BUT, I had a few returns from Christmas for Anthro, so we ran in really quick. Sadly, we had no time- so we had to rush in and rush out, leaving me with Anthro cravings. So naturally, I wanted to go on Saturday. Plus I had giftcards.
On Saturday McKay said he would take me to Anthro. The problem is, every time we go there, we get in a fight, so I always have a tinge of worry along with the excitement. Usually we fight because I am in my zone, and McKay is dragging himself behind me, groaning. So I turn to him and I say, McKay, do you like this? (to get him involved). And he says, I don't know, just get it. And I say, but I really want to know what you think. And then he says, I don't know Ali, you handle the money. And I say, McKay, I'm not asking if I can get it, I'm asking if you like it. And to that he says, I DON'T CARE ALI. I'M HUNGRY AND WE HAVE BEEN IN HERE FOR THREE HOURS. And then I calmly tell him to go to the Mac store.
But THIS time. No fight. We got there, I shopped a little, he got a little bored, he went to the Mac store on his own, I shopped a little more, we met up when I was done, then we ate. That's the key everyone. Then we ate. You have to feed the boys. Afterward, we left happy. We turned on our new CD and embarked on the journey home. As we were leaving the parking lot, McKay said the tires felt a little weird. I didn't feel anything. Then we got on the freeway, and
We looked at each other and both said what the?!?!?! And then McKay stopped the car in the space by the exit in the middle of the road and calmly changed our tire. He smiled and gave me the "thumbs up" as he was doing it to make me feel okay. And luckily, Jax just slept! McKay got the donut on and hit the hazard lights and then we drove home going 40mph on the freeway.
When we got home, I took Jax downstairs to make cookies so McKay could have a break. I was also kind of happy that we had a shopping day that didn't end in negativity because of Anthro.
But then McKay posted this.
Thanks a lot for the flat tire, Anthropologie.
