Weekend Recap

Well there really isn't a whole lot to recap but it sounded like a nice title! Since I worked on Friday I was pretty tired by the time Deaner got home from work. We knew we were going to have a low key weekend and decided to head back to our old stomping grounds for dinner on Friday night. That is right, we VOLUNTARILY went back to the hotel where we lived for five months and had dinner at Little Italy. I'm not going to lie, we always liked the food, it was just the amount of time that we spent there when we were too lazy to walk out to dinner each night! I never thought I would say this but it was actually sort of a fun summer living in that hotel and venturing out on foot each night to find a place to enjoy dinner. It at least got us familiar with our new city. I am counting down the days until Day Light Savings time kicks in again and it is light here until 10:30pm and the sun is up at 4:30pm. I know it is going to be a hot summer, being grossly fat and all, but I am in desperate need of the sun. Anyways, I digress.

When Deaner and I got in the car to go to dinner on Friday night he broke the news to me that he didn't think that he was going to be able to travel home with me to Atlanta at the end of April. I sort of knew that this could happen but I was just waiting to find out for sure. I was hoping that I could go home for a week and a half and the he would then join me for another week. No such luck. When I asked him why he was so sure at this point he handed me a piece of paper with a flight itinerary on it. I didn't even really look at it closely before expressing my opinion on the fact that he had to go to England AGAIN. He sort of laughed and told me to LOOK at the ticket. Imagine my surprise when I realized that it was TWO plane tickets leaving from Frankfurt and taking us BOTH to GREECE!!! This is something that I was not expecting at all! Deaner explained that he thought we should take a big trip together before the baby gets here and we have both been wanting to go to Greece. We are spending two nights in Athens and then flying to Santorini for 5 nights. I could not be more excited (ok, well maybe I would be a little more excited if I knew I was going to be skinny in a bathing suit instead of super fat but I totally don't care)!! Since he decided to book us this trip he didn't think he should come to Atlanta with me just because it would be a lot of time away from the office. SO, I am heading home alone April 29th thru May 11th and then when I return, we will be leaving for Greece May 28th and staying until June 4th. It is going to be a GREAT Spring/Summer! I can't wait to be enjoying the views above this summer!!

Saturday was less eventful. In fact, I am trying to even remember what we did on Saturday. It sure wasn't much! We made homemade pizzas for dinner and watched TV. FUN! Sunday was a sad day because Deaner had to pack for England. I drove him to the airport at 3:00pm and he was on his way. Of course, it was sad. I wouldn't do well having a husband who travelled all the time when I couldn't go along! I hit up the commissary for the week on the way home and ate spaghetti for one last night. I actually stayed up and watched the first quarter of the Super Bowl but fell asleep shortly after that. Today has not been very eventful either! I have a big pot of soup simmering on the stove right now and I can't wait to eat it for dinner!! Is 5:35pm too early to eat!? I have also found a new drink that I love. People who know me know how much I hate to drink water. Gross. Don't ask me why, just don't like it. Yesterday I recieved a tip from Steph and ran with it. I put 2 crystal lite packets into a 1.5 liter bottle of sparkling water. YUM! The best way to drink water ever!

Tomorrow I am having dinner with a friend, Wednesday dinner with Steph and Jon and Thurday hanging out with another friend. I am surprised my week filled up like that but perhaps it will make it go by quickly! Deaner returns Friday night and we are leaving Saturday for Prague until Monday. I have never been to Prague so I am really excited. For now I think that I am going to go ahead and eat my dinner. I am single this week after all!! I can eat when I want!! Happy Monday!

Oh my goodness! I am so jealous! Greece is my number one place I want to visit in my life! You are going to have such a great time! I know you will take lots of pictures to share with us right?!?!

Have fun visiting with your friends this week and soon your husband will be home. :)

I know what you mean about the Husband leaving is hard. I am lucky that my husband does not have to travel too much.
And let me say that I am extremely jealous that you are going to Greece. And you will love Prauge. I adored my quick visit there a long time ago. (I had just finished 3rd grade when I was last there...)

THAT IS AMAZING NEWS...I am so happy for you and Deaner (and a tad, ok a LOT jealous). Major brownie points to Deaner for planning and getting the trip together. Your trip to Greece sounds amazing and I can't wait to see the pictures and hear all about it.

Glad you survived your time subbing last week (I know I am behind.)
