This was quite the exhaustive weekend for us. Well for me mostly because I'm just not as capable of handling big weekends like this anymore. But we started our weekend with tailgating on Saturday.
We went to Harry's after this but I didn't take many pictures. Probably because I was too focused on finding a lost credit card.
Wanna hear the story?
Andrew told me to remind him to close his tab before we left so I did. He went up to the bar to close it and came back. I said, "Did you close your tab?"
"Did you get your credit card?"
He stares at me blankly and then gets his wallet out. He doesn't have his credit card. "She didn't give it to me!!!"
I said, "Go back and get it from her." He goes back up to the bar and she doesn't have it. She feels terrible. She's apologizing all over the place. We've got people in the bar looking for this credit card. It is no where to be found. We looked all through Andrew's wallet, didn't find it. Looked in his pockets, didn't find it.
We finally leave Harry's and I make him call Chase and cancel his card because I'm sure the card is stolen. He calls Chase Customer Service and being that the call centers are usually located in middle east and the fact that he has had too much to drink, he can't understand what they are saying. He tries two or three different times to talk to a person he can understand. Finally, he is able to cancel his card.
We were meeting Andrew's aunt, uncle and cousin that night for dinner. We get to the restaurant and as we are walking in the door, he sticks his hands in his pockets.
LO AND FREAKING BEHOLD, there's his credit card in front left pocket.
Did he check that pocket???? I GUESS NOT.
So now he has to switch over everything that was automatically set up for that card. Sweet. Good times.
So anyway, on to the rest of the weekend.
The shower was in Lafayette at the Rush Pavillion which is a wonderful place to have things, by the way. It's a gorgeous building with a wrap-around porch. So cool.
My mom and her friend Sue and my sis-in-law Erin all helped put together quite a fabulous event. It was awesome!
The theme was "the little pumpkin".
You can see everyone hard at work on their pumpkin trivia.
brazillion pictures if my mom took pictures of every one but here are some gift opening highlights. These pictures were taken after I had to pull my hair back because I was sweating like a cat in a China Garden restaurant. Ridic! It got really hot in that room because it was 80 degrees outside. I gotta say- I would've really liked to be one of those polar bears on that onesie at the time.
Funny enough, Purdue Pete HAS the hammer in his hand on the cover. How did he lose it? Did he STICK IT IN HIS FRONT LEFT POCKET?????
"Hail, Hail to Old Purdue....")
I think he married me because I often laughed at this jokes. I'm not sure why I laugh though. Maybe it's because he looks like he does in the picture.
Another Andrew Story from the day of the shower:
Andrew and the other men in the family went out to eat at Scotty's while we were busy with the shower. Andrew drove and parked in the lot. It took them about 2 hours to eat and when they came out to the car, Andrew couldn't find his keys. They all look at our Equinox and realize it's running... unlocked... with valuables inside... FOR THE ENTIRE TWO HOURS THEY WERE IN SCOTTY'S. How lucky did Andrew get on THIS one?? No one stole the car or anything inside. But we are getting really crappy gas mileage on that tank of gas.
I think Andrew must be having Pregnant Brain Empathy or something. I hope one of us becomes less of a moron soon because someone has to be the non-nincompoop for poor Baby T!
So after the shower, everyone helped load our car with the gifts...
Even Brian was cashed from his weekend of being boarded at the vet.
Right now, he's snoring loudly in that exact position with his eyes flickering.
