This weekend was awesome with a capital A! Friday we had a down night, we just watch some movies and relaxed at home, it was a lot of fun.
Saturday we drove over to TX (which was quite an adventure in itself) and went to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival. We had an absolute blast! I think the kids had the most fun though. We watched a jousting segment that was really intense, a comedy show that had us rolling, and a guy play the glass harmonica. We ate a lot and drank some too. All in all a very good afternoon.
While at the festival I received a phone call that I completely wasn't expecting. It hit me so hard I started crying before I answered. It was my best friend Danielle. OMG! was my first thought. Please God no was my second, then I heard the sweetest sound ever! My friend was on the phone talking to me as if nothing was wrong with her! I was in shock. The world stop spinning for a moment and I was completely in awe. My friend was on the phone, talking, laughing, and tell me how much she loved and missed me. She wanted me to come see her, but I was in TX and she was in Shreveport. :-( I asked to visit her on Sunday and she said okay! More on that later...
Saturday night we met up with an friend from online that I've known about 5 years and we caught up with her for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory! Let me tell ya that driving in Dallas was crazy, it reminded us of being on the beltway in DC for a minute. When we arrived we were glad to be in park and I ready for a martini of any kind! I also was praying to God, Baby Jesus, and Tom Cruise that my children would behave. LOL, thankfully they did pretty good. They got crazy a few times but all in all hit it off with my friend's son and had an awesome time playing with him. I think we may have even arranged a marriage... Ha!
I didn't know what to expect meeting my up with my friend, but I was thrilled and thankful that we did. She is the absolute cutest thing in TX and I am so happy to call her friend. She is like the big sister I always wanted and in my world I've finally got her! We'll be going over to Dallas again in a couple of weeks to see her and the family this time. We're also going to watch my Tampa Bay Rays beat up on the Texas Rangers too, but I'll save that post for another time. LOL
After dinner, I passed out along with the kids and Mr. Sergeant drove back to Louisiana. I think about an hour into the drive I heard him say I was right and that we should have gotten a hotel... but I may have been dreaming. LOL Who knows... All that matters is we made it home in one piece; right or not.
Let's see... Hmmm. Oh okay. Sunday!
Sunday I rose with the sun... For some reason Babe Boy didn't want to sleep in, and I was okay with that. I got up made breakfast, caught up on blogs, and spent some serious and snuggly quality time with my boy. The rest of the family woke up a couple of hours later, then I got ready and headed to the hospital to see my beautiful friend.
I arrived at the hospital around 10:30 and I wasn't sure what I expected to see. I knew I wasn't going to cry, I promised myself that, and I knew crying wouldn't have done either of us any good. So I didn't. I went up to the floor she was on, asked a nurse for her room, found it and stood outside for a good 30 seconds before going in. As I opened the door; I looked to my right to see the most beautiful sight I'd seen in a while. My best friend sitting up with color in her cheeks and a big smile on her face, with her brown eyes shining. I was in heaven and my best friend was with me!
I instantly washed up and ran over to give her a big hug! I didn't want to let go, it didn't feel real! I was just so freaking happy. We laughed, talked, played games, and caught up for the next 6 hours. We had seriously lost track of time, but it was worth every second spent there. I was so happy. She was happy and healing! I couldn't have asked for a better Sunday, even her reaction when I surprised her with a necklace from the Ren Fest was perfect.
I left the hospital, I cried tears of joy, today she even got a little bit better. Thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts for her. You guys rock!
Well, I went home after that and relaxed.
Today has been good, but I can hardly wait for Thursday! SEX AND THE CITY 2!!!!! How were your weekends? You know I want to know! LOL
