good thing the rest of my weekend was fulfilling enough to negate the browns.
friday right after work seanski, nugget and i hopped in the yuppie mobile and headed to cedar point for halloweekends where we, as well as AJP, JV, hartzell, timmybennett, colleen, katie, and julie had a blast running around sandusky, ohio.
we couldn't have picked a better night to go. the weather was perfection, the ride lines were minimal, the funnel cakes were delicious, but the fright zone was horrible, horrible!
full disclosure: the fright zone was only horrible because it scared the crap out of me. between the fog so thick you couldn't see in front of you and the scary people in masks that upon hearing my "oh my god!" yelps told me that "jesus can't help you here, sweetheart", i was freaked out. but if you like haunted houses, you'll love it though, fact.
i actually went on a couple of new rides this trip my favorite being the maverick where hartzell and i rode in the first car thelma and louise style - go big or go home. but my least favorite being the power tower, because waiting on the top of the tower before the drop was pure torture for me - felt like years.
all in all it was a great experience going through cedar point at night and personally i think the coasters were cooler in the dark. the cherry on top was that by going on halloweekends on a friday night it meant that it was only a 1/2 hour wait for millennium force.... awesome.
i can't wait to go to halloweekends again next year!

saturday was a whirlwind of shopping with my mom - from arhaus clearance center to crate&barrel, to arhaus, to restoration hardware, to world market, back to crate&barrel, to pier 1 and finally to tj maxx and more.
after all that shopping i came home with a lot more decorating ideas plus the items below:
4 malia woven chairs from world market (to go with my new valeta dining room table from arhaus) and with the 25% friends and family coupon it was buy 3 get 1 free!
the faulkner 62" media console from crate&barrel
a vintage dowry chest to be used as my coffee table, also from crate&barrel
by the time shopping saturday with stepho was complete it had been almost 10 hours and i was exhausted - straight to bed for me.
sunday brought tailgating in the pit, with no $5 cover charge mind you, but lots of gorgeous weather and fun with friends. i ended up not going to the game this time but headed to barley house with addison montgomery, mike, muffin, MOB, liz, megan, john, erin and brandon to watch the game and eat some grub.
even though we were watching the game we still had time to make fun of addison montgomery and her sweet sak purse and pumas.

as a new week begins i can't help but start to freak out over the fact that i desperately need to start parking for my move.
i should probably be doing that now instead of blogging....
have a good week, kids!
