A Whrrl of a Weekend!

Last weekend was crazy for us!

The hubs headed off for a fun guys weekend, I was working day shift and the kids and I had serious plans in the evenings.

On Saturday after getting off work and picking up the kids from the grandparents we headed over to McDonalds to pick up dinner for us and 10 of our friends. We were hosting a House Party courtesy of McDonalds and Shrek. There were goodie boxes galore! It was so cool to see all the different Happy Meal toys that are going to be offered in promotion of the new Shrek: The Final Chapter movie that just came out on the 21st. The party box also included Shrek The Third so we were able to partake in dinner AND a movie!

We had a really good time. A little crazy with all the kids but it was fun and I would definitely do it again.

Then on Sunday the kids and I were invited to birthday party at Bullwinkles! The kicker.. it was for the daughter of one of my bloggy friends Kristin who is over at Our Ordinary Life. Even though we only live about 40 minutes from each other we had yet to meet in person. It was SO cool to finally be able to meet her and a couple other ladies that I have been chatting with on Twitter. I definitely found a couple of cool K’s to hang out with this summer. I’m thinking I’ll be spending a lot of time around Portland-Beaverton. 🙂

And now it’s Memorial Day weekend. It will be a bit crazy too I’m sure. I’ll be working and enjoying some time with family. What are your plans?


  1. Kristen says:

    Oh vey! So many K’s so little time! I was über thrilled to meet you and the fam! Hopefully next time we can find a quieter spot and finally get to talk!

    The Shrek party sounded like a hoot! I can’t imagine kids having more fun than eating Mickey Dees and watching the greatest green guy!

  2. I think Shrek is a bit over Abbys head for the theater, but it looks like a fun movie!

    So fun to meet up with online friends! We did a Buddy Walk with someone I only knew online last fall. Incredible fun abounded, even in the pouring, bitter cold rain.
