The Champ is Here!

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Okay, so we only ended up playing 5 games, here is the breakdown:

Yahtzee (6 rounds). Brad: 1682, Grace: 1381. Okay, he kicked my arse.

Monopoly Deal: Brad won 1 hand, I won 2. Burn, sucka!

Dominos: (scores like golf) Brad: 49, Grace: 37. Take that!

Life: Brad: 1,585,000 Grace: 1,680,000. Oooooohhhh, SNAP!

Rummy: Brad: 720, Grace: 1030. *does the Chandler dance*

That means I won 4/5 games. THE CHAMP IS HERE!!

Actually, we had a really nice night. We declared it at-home date night, so Brad actually changed out of PJs into my favorite t-shirt and shorts combo he has (I was already in tank and shorts). We hid our cell phones, played a few games, made dinner together (alright, roast pork, mashed potatoes and boiled carrots is a weird summer dinner, but it was tasty!!), played more games, and then made dessert (apples baked with brown sugar and granola, served with peanut butter gelato). I was only allowed to go on Spark for 2 seconds just to track food. We were going to watch a movie before bed, but I was way too tired (having only had 3 hours of sleep after a night shift that morning).

Today, Brad has been working, and I spent my day shopping! (Literally from 8am-4pm, minus 1 hour for Zumba class, 15 minutes for an eyebrow wax, and a half hour to shower). Brad approved me $30 to buy a new sundress or skirt (remember, we do all planned budgeting together, when I want an impulse item or a "just because" we hash out an amount to spend before taxes).

I found two I LOVE at Old Navy, each $25. And I can't decide. Honestly I started crying and had to leave the mall (that's for you Erin, Winnie-the-Pooh whaaa???). Brad is out of cell range today for work, so I couldn't try to suck up over texting. Soooo he'll be off work in a half hour or so, I'll pick him up and force him to come to the mall to choose one. Or see how redonculously hot I look in both of them and maybe change his mind. emoticon

After all, we are taking a vacation in September I will want breezy dresses for *and* dresses are the most versatile clothing item that will expand pretty well all the way to full-term. Just add a cardi in the winter!

... think these arguments will fly with Brad? Bwa-hahahahah!!

Have a BEAUTIFUL weekend, my awesomes!

    Hahaha, those evil hormones and awesome dresses, what to do!

Now I've got to check your other blog to see how you made out with them -- I'm a little behind in my Sparking! Love the date night you had too. Sometimes we need to turn off the technology and just enjoy being together!

    I knew you were going to win, I could feel it! Yahtzee was a game of a chance, those others were pure skill. ;) I saw in your status he let you get both dresses, I'm so glad. :D Your date night seriously was just so super cute. It gives me hope that maybe one day I will find a nice guy and have an awesome relationship! :D ;)

    Yahtzee is my favorite game ever! I am so in love with it and everyone thinks I'm crazy for it. I also like specialty card games, like Skip-Bo and Phase 10. With only my mom and I playing, our gaming options are limited. We do a lot of puzzles in my house though (sometimes so much I close my eyes and I see puzzle pieces).

That gelato sounds great. But I have been craving some Ben and Jerry's magic lately. Aka, Chubby Hubby! Or I could go to an actual ice cream place, like Marble Slab, but that's such a big portion and can't track!

Sounds like your hormones are starting to get the best of you! And I mean that in the best way possible! Hope you finalize which dress you want.

Good luck and have a great Sunday!!!
