Idle hands do the Devil's work

Forgive me.  I have sinned.  No one should ever cut their own bangs.  I'm walking proof.  I just got my hair cut but the change wasn't dramatic enough to satisfy me.  Now the change is so dramatic that I think I regret it.  What do you think?

Alex's face kind of says it all
It's been a crazy but fun weekend.  I'm so exhausted!  Alex and I started our weekend off with our TGIF bowling league.  I bowled a 131, 166 and 87 because consistency is not my strong suit.  You would think coming from a family of bowlers, I would do better but I still suck. 

The next morning, Alex and I went to Howl-o-scream at Busch Gardens.  It was freezing.  The haunted houses didn't start until 6pm and it was waaaay too cold for roller coasters so we started out with our favorite meal at the Festhaus!

I tried sauerkraut for the first time this summer at the Festhaus and it was love at first bite.  It is totally normal for me to get just a side of sauerkraut and devour it.  And yeah, that's a giant dill pickle on our tray too. 

After lunch, we decided to try out the Mach Tower.  I had no idea how windy and how much colder it was going to be at the top of the tower.  It would have been a great ride if my teeth weren't chattering the whole time.    It was the epitome of your stomach being in your throat feeling!  I loved it.  After being up in the frigid air, it was time for some apple cider....mmmmm.....

The clown scare zone
Howl-o-Scream was overall a lot of fun.  It was perfect that it was just Alex and me.  I don't think I will take my daughter until she is much, much older.  They don't start the really scary stuff until 6pm but even the shows were a different caliber for Howl-o-Scream.  The actors were much more scantily clad and the dancing was more provocative too.  It's not for kids but it's a good time for adults.

Julia's party, however, was a blast for the kiddos :)  Sunday was full of kids, sweets and fun (in that order).  I made a dirt cake for Julia.  I was supposed to make cake pops to go on top of the cake but I didn't have any sticks and I didn't feel like driving to the store to get some either.  I like to call them cake truffles.

The party was a hit!  I got the kids all sugared up and sent them home to the parents ;)  

What was the highlight of your weekend?

  1. I kind of like the bangs! You're brave for cutting your own hair. At least it's hair and the great thing about hair grows! :)


I love, love, love comments :) Let me know what you think!
