10/29/12 - Weekend Highlights

I'm in recovery today...
recovering from my birthday weekend!
It was great but I'm tired!
wow! I can barely write this blog post! IDK how I'm going to make it through my work day!
Let me share my weekend:
On Friday, we were all off - the kids from school and me and my husband from work.
So we decided to go to the pumpkin patch and try out the corn maze they have.  The maze consisted of well, a maze of corn... and hidden posts in that maze that included numbers that we had to write down and use later on as a code to unlock the door to go into another maze. Then in that other maze we had to do the same thing, figure out the code in order to unlock the door to the get out of the maze. It was hard!  We were in there for about an hour and we only made it out because we started working w/ other people in the maze to get the codes.  There was a total of 8 hidden posts and we only actually found 4!!! Yikes! But we made it out and as our prize for doing so we received these:

Bracelets that say "I Conquered the Maze"

On Friday night me and my hubby went to LA to have dinner and drinks and then to see "Lucha VaVoom".
We had dinner at Trader Vic's a Hawaiian Themed restaurant which was pretty darn good! I had a couple of Mai Tai's and I was feeling pretty "happy"...(I'm a total lightweight BTW)
Then we went to the show.
For those who don't know, "Lucha VaVoom" is a show w/ a combo of Mexican Wrestling(Luchadores) and burlesque dancing. I know, I know it sounds weird but the shows are fun! We went to our first one for Valentines day and when we received an e-mail about this show, which was Halloween themed, we decided to go again. Again, it was really good! The show was sold-out, that's how popular it is! I only had one complaint... they were running hour late!  I hate waiting so by the time the show started I was a bit upset! But I got over it.

Here's 2 pics from the event:

On Saturday, My actual birthday, my hubby had to work and my son was at his dad's.  So while my daughter was hanging out with her cousin, who we had over the night before to babysit her, I cleaned. I have been really tired lately so my house was being neglected. I know cleaning on your birthday does not sound fun but it had to be done and I felt accomplished after so really it was okay! What I didn't want to do was cook though! So we went out to dinner to one of my favorite restaurants - Outback. Again, delicious food!!!! I had a crab avocado appetizer that was to die for! We were going to order dessert so that it could be my "birthday cake" since I don't really celebrate my birthday...but we didn't wind up actually ordering dessert because when my daughter and I took a bathroom break, my sneaky husband called our waitress over and informed her it was my birthday and they brought over a complimentary dessert: an ice cream sundae big enough for the 3 of us to share! It was yummy! The hot fudge was sooo good! I could have eaten a bowlful of just the hot fudge and been a happy camper!
Finally, Saturday night, we went over to our friends' house to enjoy some drinks and late night snacks. It was a quiet affair but I like quiet. I tried a new drink called a "cactus cooler" and I loved it! (I also enjoyed a few shots) But as I stated erlier I am a lightweight. So on Sunday I was so tired and dehydrated and just didn't want to do anything! So other than a few loads of laundry, I vegged in bed and caught up on my shows: "Private Practice", "Grey's Anatomy", The Mindy Kaling Project", "The B in Apt 13"...yes lots of TV watching! Oh and I completed a layout but I can't share it just yet because it's a DT project!
Despite my vegative state of yesterday I am still so tired! Uggghhh!
Getting old stinks, LOL!

BTW - in case you're wondering I am now 37.
