Monday Mayhem - Cookout

Friday afternoon, 4:59 pm, I was sitting on the edge of my seat, purse on my shoulder, keys in my hand, counting down the seconds to clock out for Friday evening. I had a reason to be excited and dart out as fast as possible. I had DATE NITE :)

I rush home, thinking I had a few minutes to freshen up and look "hott" for my husband when he walked in the door. I put on some good music in the bathroom, touched up my make-up, recurled my hair, and was feelin' goooood.

By the time I finish, I start to realize that Husband should have already been home by now. He was supposed to be home at 5:30, and it was almost six. I whip out the cell phone and see "2 missed calls" and "1 voicemail". Ohhhhh noooo....

I listen to the voicemail from 5:45 and it says, "Hey Allie, I need you to come get us. My truck broke down on the interstate." click.

To make a long story short, we were supposed to be at our special date nite at 6 pm. We got there at 8 pm. After getting the voicemail, I hopped into the jeep, noticed it was on E and the boys were about 20-30 min. away on the side of the southbound interstate. So SUPERWIFE was on her way! Here's a pic of my Husband's lovely truck that stranded the manly working men:


Anyways, Saturday was much better. We hosted a cookout at our house for the college class from church. Here are some fun pics of the evening! And I also learned that adding pretzels to candy corn and peanuts is a brilliant combination!!! :)

It looks like you had a great weekend in spite of the glitch with the truck.

Your fall decor with the bowl of candy corn looks cute.

That looks like a fun night (Saturday, not Friday!)
I just tried the whole candy corn/peanut combo this weekend and it was so yummy. And it is funny you mentioned the pretzels, because I almost did that! Now that I hear you say it was good, I will have to try it!

Oh that stinks your date night wasn't what it should have been - doesn't it always seem to happen that way... Something always comes up or goes wrong etc... Atleast you had a good attitude!
