First things first: I have lost my keys. Well, misplaced my keys. The word "misplaced" makes me feel a lot better about it, like I just haven't been able to put my eye on them yet. Versus the connotation that comes along with "lost." Ugh.
I know for sure we had them Saturday, and then poof! Gone.
Ian refers to it as my janitor keyring because of the plethora of keys on it. It's huge. Probably seven or eight keys, four or five scan cards, mace, and a caribiner (had to look up the spelling of that one). So for it to go hiding is not the easiest thing. I even went through our entire kitchen trashcan this morning, which was gross, but necessary. Don't you hate it when things go missing?!
Besides the missing keys fiasco, we had a great weekend. I picked Camille up from daycare Friday afternoon and we had some good family time together before it was time for her bath and bedtime. Ian and I snuggled on the couch with takeout burgers and fries while we watched American Horror Story from this past Wednesday night. So gory, so creepy, but we love it. After it ended I spent some time doing a major closet purge. I was so tired of my closet being overstuffed with clothes. I am paring it down big-time.
Saturday after Camille's morning nap, we took a 40-minute trip to Crowder's Mountain for a little family hike. We originally planned to go to the mountainhouse this weekend but then decided to stay at home, so this was a fun way to get the feel of the mountains without having to pack for ourselves, the baby, and the dog for an entire weekend. That, my friends, is no easy task.
Crowder's was lovely and there is just something so nice about hearing the leaves crunch under your feet and feeling the brisk air. All of the other hikers we passed were so nice and almost everyone will say hello to you as you pass by them.
Later that evening we went to our friends' house and hung out with them before it was time to get Camille home for her nightly routine. Ian and I had a really good dinner, buffalo chicken sliders. I just used this recipe and subbed in crockpot shredded chicken tossed in buffalo sauce for the beef and used regular mayo instead of horseradish mayo.
Sunday was pretty relaxed for us and we just did the normal ritual -- grocery store, drugstore, laundry. We did spend some time with friends in the late afternoon which was a nice way to bring the weekend to a close.
And just like that, another work week begins.
Now, if I could just find that janitor keyring I'd be a happy camper. Any ideas or suggestions?!
