Caught up? Great. Moving on. So this weekend was Hubs' birthday-he is the Big 31! We celebrated on Saturday, even though his real birthday was Sunday.
We kicked off the weekend by attending yet another, Charleston Riverdogs' baseball game, though this week, the tickets were given out through Hubs' work so I really didn't know too many people there-well you know, other than the ones we brought...Our group consisted of Hubs, Hannah, My mom and dad, Hayley, Ashley, and Hubs' Mom and Step dad (Ray-or Gramps if you are Hans). I should note that this baseball game was Ray's very first baseball game he has ever attended-did I just hear you gasp? I felt the same way-he really just isn't into sports-so we were very excited the he came out to spend some time with us! We had another picnic before the game-same hot dog/hamburger mix, though I will say that the lemonade was a little better this week than it was last week so that was a plus!

|Ray's first Riverdogs' game!|

|Hubs and Hans really only like to go to the game to eat peanuts...can't tell they are related can you?|
|Mom and Ashley|
|Hubs and Me|
|Chelsea is her favorite so we have to find her first|
|But we can't leave without giving Charlie a Huggie too!|
|And what is a baseball game without Italian ice-and when you are Hannah, of course you need every flavor-Blue Raspberry, Lemonade, Mango and Tangerine!|
|I actually beat him on this hole...|
|I am happy here because I was actually winning...|
|Hamming it up for the camera|
|Seriously, I used to be a pretty good bowler...|
|Best game of Hubs' Life...not so much for me|
|THANK YOU COSMIC BOWLING FOR GIVING ME A CHANCE!|
So I paint my toe and fingernails purple-and for those of you who know me, you are aware that I NEVER paint my finger nails ANY color other than a neutral or clear coat because I don't want to draw attention to my fingers due to my nail biting issue, but I was so excited about the silver shatter that I didn't care! (and I also figured that if the polish chipped while the shatter was on, it would be less noticeable right?) I wait for the purple to dry and I apply the Shatter-and wait...and wait...and wait some more...seriously people, it looked awful, I was so disappointed by the lackluster performance that I took it all off immediately-and started fresh with the purple again...but I couldn't get all of the stupid purple off of my finger nails-I am in serious need of some nail polish remover- so I had to repaint my fingers purple as well...so even though I hate that the shatter failed, and that my finger nails are now a rather loud purple, I am going to make a conscious effort to make my nails look nice and not bite them...we will see how long that lasts....
After Hubs' nap, we both got ready for the evening events-I made reservations on the Spirit of Charleston for a dinner cruise. I was particularly excited about this because a) it was a complete surprise and b) neither Hubs nor I have ever done that before. The cruise was supposed to begin boarding at 6:30, so we got there a bit early to make sure we had enough time to find it (we RARELY visit mt. Pleasant-so there was a very good chance I was going to get us lost, even with map quest-you know I am navigationally challenged people!) and get our boarding passes. I opted to wear a strapless denim dress and Hubs wore a button up with the sleeves rolled up and some khakis...I also decided (for God only knows what reason) that it would be a great idea to wear my hair DOWN (another Rare occurrence) and curl it...I paid for this later while we waited in the line to board the boat-it was approximately 1 BILLION degrees...okay so maybe not 1 BILLION but it was hot, REALLY REALLY HOT and I thought I was going to melt before we were able to board-so just in case you are considering going on a cruise yourself, please do yourself a favor and don't get there early, just wait so you don't have to wait in line and hear the CRAZIES that are waiting to get on the boat with you...for example (come on you knew there would be a for example!) there was a class reunion from 1976 that was on our boat-and there were so many of them-all dressed in Orange-that everyone behind Hubs and I were trying to see where they were seated to make sure it wasn't with them-they were THAT loud and obnoxious...so we asked the people when we boarded where that group was seated-and we were told 'The Middle Deck."-Phew! Hubs and I were on the Upper deck-no worries for us-until we realized that by Middle-he meant Upper-and they were, in fact, on our level...joy...OR for another example-I am pretty sure that 1 of the 2 couples in front of me -who did not look a day over 18, consisted of a young desperate boy and his escort, her dress was so short, I think it was actually a tank top that she stretched below (and I mean JUST BELOW) her butt cheeks...it was bad...
|I had no idea we were putting ourselves in danger by heading to Mount Pleasant! Watch out for the Coyotes!|
|Waiting to board the boat|
|The view while we were waiting in line|
|Tina & Richard...who may or may not have been drinking heavily when this was taken|
|In case you wondered what our menu options were...|
|And we are off!|
|Photo Opportunity! This is also proof that I wore my hair down...take it in people take it in...|
|Hubs and I hanging out Topside (Don't I sound like real boat people?)|
|This was during dinner-it was super chilly inside so I was happy I grabbed a sweater before we left the house!|
|The bridge all lit up-Hubs took this picture...|
|Right before we docked|
|This was my attempt at taking a picture of the bridge...I am just going to blame the fact that we were moving and that's why it is blurry...|
|getting the after party started!|
|Travie had a little bit of Drink envy...HEY! You can see my purple nails in this one!|
|I love a Woodchuck-especially when it is draft!|
|Hubs and Nick...|
|I was trying to get them all to give a thumbs up but clearly Travie was not participating|
|Travie and Me|
We headed out to Sonic to get some food to put in our stomachs-with the hope of helping us to feel better...I opted for a diet cherry limeade as my choice in beverage, and I have to say, I wish I opted for the undiet...oh well...then we headed over to my parents' house to pick up Hans and the dogs, by this time it was about 1:30, and I was certainly ready for a nap. When we got home, Hans announced that she was ready for a nap as well, so we all took a nap...a 4 hour nap to be exact-and it was AWESOME! Sunday was Hubs' actual birthday, and we really didn't do anything but sleep. When we woke up, Hubs decided he wanted Chinese food, so we went to dinner, came home and watched Mickey's Adventures in Wonderland (again...jealous?) and then Hannah went to bed and so did I...like I said, all we did was sleep Sunday, and yet, I was still so tired Sunday night! It was ridiculous! Hubs made us make a pact that we would never try to party like we were young ever again-I agreed-seriously people, I am too old to be hanging out with the young pups!
That was our weekend-Happy Birthday Hubs I hope this year is even better than last year! I will probably spend the rest of this week (through the weekend) recovering from all of the excitement! That reminds me, Sunday is Father's Day-what are you guys getting the Father's in your life?
