Ugh, y’all. It’s definitely Monday. I had a doctor’s appt this morning (always fun… nope), so I dropped the kids off at my mom’s, headed to the doctor and was sitting in the waiting room reading my book and enjoying a few rare minutes of quiet, when I felt something in my mouth. OH HEY, THAT’S A TOOTH. My tooth literally fell out of my head in the waiting room. It was a crown that was drilled for a root canal last summer, and I’d been putting off going to the dentist to get it permanently filled (the endodontist used a temporary filling). So then it fell out. Awesome. And I looked like a complete hillbilly at the doctor.
Back to more pleasant topics, this weekend was fun!! On Friday we headed to Oak Highlands Brewery for Family Night. We’ve been to a few of these in the past and the kids LOVE them. They get their faces painted, play air hockey, watch movies and eat pizza (food trucks!) with their friends while we get to hang out with the parents. It’s a win-win, really. Love having that in our neighborhood!
Saturday was our anniversary, so my parents watched the kids while we went out to dinner to celebrate. We headed to The Grape, our favorite, and it was fabulous as always. We split the jalapeno grits-stuffed agnolotti with peach relish for an app (amazing), then I had the gulf shrimp “tom kha gai.” I can’t resist anything Thai-inspired.
And blueberry-lime tart for dessert.
After dinner we met up with friends and ended up at our neighborhood dive bar, which just happens to have some pretty amazing karaoke on the weekends. You couldn’t PAY me to sing in front of people, but Brian just hopped right up there and serenaded us with some Merle Haggard (Mama Tried!).
We had a pretty low-key Father’s Day. Slept in since my parents still had the kids (thanks Mom & Dad!!), had an early dinner at Babe’s, then capped off the evening with a family movie night on the couch. Just a great day celebrating our favorite dads!
Ok I’m off to make a dentist appointment… because this is not a good look.
