Weekend Shenanigans & a BLATE :)

I am loving this monday because this is the beginning of my WHOLE week
off for Spring Break! I sitting at home in Saint Louis
at my parents' house enjoying my time off.
it is SO nice to be at home with my parents for more than a weekend!

Anyways this was a pretty fab weekend!!
I am linking up with my lady Sami
to share all my fun.

Friday I subbed in the afternoon for a fourth grade class. NOW let's just
say it was a friday, in the afternoon the day before spring break...let that sink in for a second
23 nine year olds...and it was party day! Thank God parents came in
and pretty much did the whole party. As the mom's were setting up i noticed a
certain cup arrangement on the side table
and when I asked she said...
"don't judge me but I was playing beer pong the other
night & thought of this..."
they set up solo cups in a beer pong formation & filled the cups with candy. the kiddos
then threw the ball & when they made into a cup they got to keep that candy!

they are getting ready for college early! BAHA loved this mom!
after the candy pong shenanigans I drove the 3.5 lovely hours back to STL
and walked into one of my fave meals cooked by my mom waiting on the table.
I spent the evening on the couch. 

Saturday I was up & at em'. It was raining..gah. But i did get to wear my cutise
rainboots. they are not hunter boots...just target brand...but they do the job!

Me & the parents went to the farmers market in soulard...its downtown STL.
I am obsessed with this place. They have venders galore with produce on produce
and they have meats and tons and tons of other stuff. If you ever come to STL
i would recommend going. I really enjoyed it.

Fresh made MINI doughnuts :) They made them right in 
front of you. YUMO.

Then mom & I did some resale shopping. I got a little shirt & a candle stick.
oooh and these FAB Wedges & children books to use in my classroom.
saturday night was my VERY FIRST BLATE :)

Now I have followed Cassie & Steph forever. They are two of my most favorite bloggers.
I had never heard of Katie's blog before but Cassie brought her along & I am so glad she did!
They were amazing and drove ALL the way out to St. Charles and we ate at 
this little irish pub and had a few adult bevvys & wonderful conversation!
I am so glad we met up! They are pretty fabulous :)
I stole these pictures from the ladies!

I have a LOT of hair...

The girls :)

I cannot wait to have another meet up NEXT time i am in town!!

Sunday it rained all day & was quite gloomy gloom gloom. Since
the weather was yucky & we lost an hour of sleep I just laid around
and watched tv. I am not even ashamed I did get out of my pjs.
It was lovely.
I literally have so much hair..

Well that was my weekend & it was one of the best ones in a while!
