Paintings and A Party

I have had a terrible cold all weekend. I am thankful that Christine left me a comment about Breathe Right strips! Marcus got me some and they worked great! I love all you blog friends that take care of me! 

Marcus also got me some other medicines and a Coke Slurpee! Those can cure anything! 

He is STILL in paramedic school and now has to work at 5 different hospitals for a month. So he was working most of the weekend. 

We had plans to go on a date Friday  night, but I was pretty pathetic. We still dropped Katie off at his mom's house and just went for a drive. 
We ended up at Sonic to sample 2 of their 25 flavors of shakes. 
I got peanut butter fudge! Yum! I have a feeling we will be meeting again sometime soon. Marcus got chocolate covered strawberry, but he wasn't in love with it. 
 I was practically in my PJs, with no make up AND I had a roll of TP on my lap. So romantic! The roll of TP was for my runny nose, NOT the other end. For some reason I never buy tissues? I guess because a tissue box doesn't go with my decor. Not that TP does, but it's kind of a necessity and it can do double duty. (there's a joke in there, that I will ignore)
Anyway, we think dates are important and try to go on them at least twice a month. Next time I will leave the toilet paper at home!
On Saturday I had to try to entertain Katie while on my death bed. (dramatic?)
She's been hooked on painting ever since I let her paint pumpkins in October. So I got her some canvases and let her make some art work for me.
I needed to fill a space on this wall, so I just chose the colors I wanted her to use.
I gave her one color at a time, dried it with a hair dryer, then she started with the next color.
If you are OCD, this project might put you in the loony bin. I am not OCD at all and there were times I wanted to be the boss of her painting, but I refrained. 

I'm glad I did, because I love how they turned out!

I also got out of bed to go to my nieces' birthday party! 
Melissa is 14 and Jennifer is 19.
They are the sweetest girls!

Here they are with all their cousins! Katie was WOUND up and had a great time. She loves a good birthday party!
Jennifer, Jeddy, Tessa, Melissa, Silly Katie
Jesse, and Sophie

I am hoping for a healthier week, with less snot, and less toilet paper rolls in my life!

You crack me up :-) Loved y'alls romantic date. Jealous of the sonic.

Feel better!!!

Oh and I don't buy tissues either. Kindred spirits.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who refuses to buy tissue boxes since they don't go with my decor! Thanks for making me feel a little less abnormal. :)

Hope you're feeling better! And LOVE Katie's paintings! And we are the same way with the TP for Kleenex.

I tried the Peanut Butter Fudge shake last week and it was pretty good. I think I'll try the Peanut Butter Banana next time, but definately not Peanut Butter Bacon. Yuck! I like them separate, but I don't know about together.

I am dead set on trying the chocolate cream pie shake from Sonic. I swear I heard it whisper my name the other day straight off the menu.
