VERY Interesting Weekend...INDEED!

Our weekend was a bit more eventful than we had planned or expected.
Friday we both got off work a early so we changed clothes, put Shelby in the stroller and walked to a local restaurant for happy hour.
BTW - I'm really loving my short hair!
When we got home we kicked it before putting Shelby to bed.
Hers and Buddy are just loving each other these days!

Then, I started on laundry.
Three loads Friday night.
It was when the last load started buzzing in the dryer that I started running up the stairs(the laundry area is right next to Shelby's room and we are always afraid of it waking her).
That's when I tripped and stubbed my big toe.
It didn't hurt at first even though half of the nail was ripped off the nail bed.
But, I knew I was SCREWED.
I'll spare you all the details except that I was the first at Urgent Care the next morning and they had to take the entire nail off!!!!!!!!
I just kept telling myself that I have been through labor and delivering a baby and this should be nothing.
That really didn't help though.
It hurt like no tomorrow and I'm still dealing with some pain.
Let's hope it doesn't last long.
After my trip to Urgent Care Shelby and I headed out to do some errands.
Farmer's market was first.
They had real, raw honeycomb for sale.
I came real close to buying it but this tray was $28 and I chickened out when it was all said and done.
Our next stop was the grocery store where I decided to have Shelby ride in the cart for the first time ever!
Girlfriend LOVED IT!!
It totally made my day, especially giving how my day started.
While Shelbs and I were out running errands Brad was over putting a down payment on the newest addition to the Stephens fam.
A pull camper!!!!!!!!!
We are so excited!
I know it's not every one's thing but we are SUPER excited to be able to start using this and visit all of the beautiful areas and state parks here in the Carolinas and surrounding states.
More on it in another post!
Later in the evening, we got dressed up and got Shelby settled with a sitter so we could go to my BIL's 40th surprise birthday party!
To say he was surprised is an understatement.
I don't think he had a clue!
I love my SIL's reaction behind him.
She worked super hard to put this whole thing together!
I think he had a fabulous time being with all his friends and family!
I know we did.
Despite my bummed toe.
I just wore one of my trusty maxi dresses to hide my ugly bandage.
Good times for all!
Today was low-key.
We needed it.
We ran errands, got things ready for the work week and played with this cutie.
She played so much today that she was in bed snoozing by 6:45pm.
So we went from good, to bad, back to good this weekend.
This week involves a lot of preparation for Shelby's baptism and baptism celebration brunch this coming weekend
Lots of family and friends!
Happy Monday!

Sorry about your toe..ouch! Y'all will love the camper. I grew up camping with my parents starting out with a pop up to a pull behind. Looking back those are some of my favorite memories!

And I know I've said this a million times, but I cannot get over how adorable Shelby is, just the cutest!!

Hope your toe heals fast. My in laws are big campers and have really enjoyed it. My SIL always take their camper to Disney and stay at Ft. Wilderness Campground. It's gorgeous! They book way in advance coz evidently it fills up fast.

Oh my god. That is horrible about your toe. So sorry. I have a split toenail, and it's a pain in the rear. YOu poor thing...I'm cringing.

Congrats on the new addition.
