The Weekend

This weekend FLEW by!

It started early for me since I was taking the hubs on a Mystery Date.  Before our date began, we stopped at the hospital to see his friend who was injured last week. He is doing FANTASTIC! So, so, so much better than anyone anticipated! While he still has a very long road to recovery, the swelling in his face has gone down, he can SEE (mostly just shapes, nothing too detailed though) and will have a second surgery this morning. He has found his humorous side and has jokingly thrown things at his girlfriend and even rubbed Danny's belly when the nurse told him to find his inner Buddha. Like I said, him and his family still have a long road ahead of them, but things could have turned out a whole lot worse! Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers!

After our visit, we headed to check in at our hotel and then beat feet to meet the bus for the Mystery Date, which was a brewery tour! Something we've never done before. We aren't huge craft beer people, but we do enjoy beer and a good time. Which is exactly what we had! $30 got us driven around to 4 different Indy breweries, a ton of samples, and a very good buzz.  Before the first stop, the bus was quiet. After the first stop, all the passengers were old friends! We visited Sun King (my fave), Flat 12, Indiana City(they have a seasonal winter brew that was so good!), and Two Deep. If you live in the Indy area, or an hour away and don't mind springing for a hotel (because you WILL be too intoxicated to drive home), it is so worth the money! I went through Brewery Tours of Indianapolis for ours. It is perfect for a birthday party (which there were 2 on our bus), an out of the box date night, or just a reason to get together with friends. We started planning our next tour before we visited the first brewery.

And this is the only picture I have. I failed to bring my car charger and the hospital ate my battery up.

Saturday morning we got woken up by the fire/emergency alarm at the hotel at 6:30. Yes, the one day I could sleep until my body woke me up, I get woke up 30 minutes past normal time. They were investigating. An hour and a half later, they came back over the intercom to let us know it was a false alarm. I'm sorry, but if its been an hour and a half and you haven't told me to evacuate yet, I'm gonna go ahead and assume all is okay. While I appreciate the caution, I appreciate sleep a little more at this point in my life. After a yummy breakfast at Another Broken Egg Café (we went to one on vacation in Alabama, and as soon as I saw one in Indy we had to go), we picked Tucker up from my moms and headed home. Danny went to work and Tucker and I played and went to Hobby Lobby. Once Tuck went to bed that night I folded some laundry and went to bed. I was TIRED and had a long Sunday ahead of me.
He's too cute for his teeth to hurt so bad!

When Danny got home from work, we loaded up and headed to drop Tuck off at my mom's so we could finish up Tuck's birthday shopping and go to Sam's Club. We got out of there for less than $300 so that was pretty impressive for us. We picked the boy up and headed home to relax for a bit before Danny's grandpa's Christmas. He gets it out of the way early and its lovely. After dinner, I was just ready to be home. Tuck was tired and grumpy, I was tired and still had to work out. All got done and I was in bed by 10:30 which is pretty good for a busy day/night!

Now, we are at the start of a 3 day work week and the official beginning of the holidays!


  1. You are celebrating Christmas already? I have a feeling we are going to have to start celebrating Christmas early too... there isn't enough time to visit 3 sets of parents Christmas, then their sides of the family and then have our own. I am not a fan of Christmas. The brewery tour sounded fun... I think I may have to take a trip to Indy, Illinois is close.

  2. I'm so glad you're friend is feeling better, been praying! I have never heard of a brewery tour like that, how neat. The hubs and I need to get away for a night....

  3. That mystery date tour sounds like lots of fun! What a unique idea! :)
