On Friday night, I went out with a bunch of girlfriends to see the movie "Valentine's Day." It was very funny, and I would definitely recommend it.
Saturday morning, my husband and I picked up my 6 year old nephew and we took him snowtubing. Here are some pictures:
After tubing, Justin slept over. We ordered pizza and watched "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs."
On Sunday morning, my husband cooked us breakfast. Justin and I baked and decorated Valentine cupcakes and then my brother came to pick him up.
That's when the weekend started to go downhill... My husband and I decided to go out to dinner at Red Lobster for Valentine's day. We called at 5:45 and they said there was only a 45 minute wait. We got in the car and started driving just before 6:00... only to get STUCK in the snow in the alley behind our house! (All of the driveways of my street and the street behind me connect in the alley). At the top of the alley, some of the houses had never shoveled the 40+" of snow we've received in the past week. SO, we got STUCK! My husband tried for over an hour to get my car out. The guy whose house we were behind came out to help too. Nothing worked - salt, shoveling, putting matts under the tires for traction. I walked back down to my house and recruited the two men that live on either side of my house. With 4 guys pushing, and my driving, we FINALLY got the car out. It was 8:00 by the time we got to Red Lobster!!!!! And they had a two hour wait for seating. We were tired, wet, and starving, so we decided not to wait. We went to ACME to get seafood instead. We had our hearts set on scallops - only to find out that the seafood counter was SOLD OUT! We ended up with crab legs and crab cakes - it was 9:00 by the time we finally ate!
And then this morning, the heater made an awful noise and water started spewing all over the place... My husband is in night school for HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), so he will talk to his teacher tonight to find out how to fix it. Until then, we have NO HEAT!
