A weekend so full of estrogen it will be scary

The boys are leaving this weekend to go and watch themselves a little college football game. Live and in-person, in the great state of Texas. (Which hopefully won't leave them too disappointed when if the Cougs lose.)

Ha. I say that as if I know what I'm talking about. Implying that I honestly care about college football.

I slay myself.

Anyhoo, the little Princess and I are on our own for the next few days, and, boy, has she ever got plans. She brought up a large stack of DVDs last night, informing me that THIS is what we'd be watching. I smiled as I noticed that my all-time favorite was at the top of the pile. Though she's tried many times to make it the whole five hours, she has never yet managed to stay awake long enough to meet the entertaining Mr. Collins, let alone see the love story through to the end. Something tells me this could be the time. FINALLY she will see Pemberly and understand why I swoon at the thought of Mr. Darcy jumping all sweaty and such into the water.

Her wanting to watch it also tells me that I am absolutely raising that girl right.

She also made a lengthy list of things she and I are to do while the boys are gone. Top of her list is shopping for clothes at the mall, shopping at the scrapbook store, actual scrapbooking, manicures & pedicures, and watching a lot of "girl movies."

I am pretty sure this will be the best weekend. EVER. Hope yours is, too.

P.S. Did you know a while back my brother Dan created a blog whose sole purpose is mocking me? Please pay him a visit and tell him how much you love me. That would tick him off something awful. While you're there, you can have a good laugh at what I looked like in sixth grade.

Yes, I know. Some things are just that frightening.

We're going camping this weekend but right about now, your weekend sounds A LOT better. I've been procrastinating all week so my to-do list is about a mile long.

Go cougars!

Lauren in GA said...

That weekend sounds great!!

Why is it that I never get to the actual scrapbooking? I love the buying stuff part...my husband calls me a, "collector", rather than a scrapbooker.

Now, I wanna watch P&P.

I can't wait for a girl's weekend that doesn't involve Dora or Strawberry Shortcake...
You two will have a blast.

The Cougars probably will lose, but that's ok, they will still have a great season. (spoken by another who doesn't really care, either but does her best)

What will happen when she turns preteen and REALLY gets a shot of estrogen? Oh, the blogs you'll be writing then!

Woman Interrupted said...

That little girl and her lists...she's something else!

Have fun.

You could do facial masks and put cucumbers on your eyes too. Have fun!

The fact that your brother spends so much time and energy mocking you just shows how enthralled he is with you.

I'm sitting here wondering why my husband is going on the same weekend, but I'm left here with ALL FOUR CHILDREN!!! I think I need to have a talk with him.

My girlie and I just happen to be watching Anne of Green Gables this weekend. Ahh, Gilbert Blithe! BTW, I did check out your bro's site. You've come along way baby!

Christie in Dallas, TX said...

Sounds like a fabulous weekend, Christie, although I wish you had come with the boys -- am just 30 minutes from the Cowboys Stadium! Have a blast with your sweet girl, these times are precious and few! (Can't wait to see pictures of your feet after the pedicure!) ;-)

Tristan said...

Um...the Cougars are gonna win!! Silly fair weathered fans!! ;)

Have so much fun!!

Note from Ben- New meaning to slay: Make-out

Michael said...

That pic with you and grandma J is priceless. Did he go to your parents for that one? Or does he keep it on hand for whenever he needs to embarrass you?

Robyn said...

Our husbands would be best friends. Now would be a good time to get ANYTHING you want out of Josh...I've honestly NEVER seen Joe happier than he is at this moment, less than an hour after BYU's victory. I seriously know what he would be like on Speed. He's that crazy-happy. I'm glad you got a girly weekend, because I just spent my evening in a testosterone-filled basement, cheering on the Cougs. I need to go watch Pride and Prejudice!

Meg said...

I can't wait to have a weekend like that with my daughter!

Did you ever see the video Ilene put on her blog about Mr Darcy? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aw7_UM
So funny.

I wish I had a brother to tease me. SO funny.

Terra said...

Oh poor Dan, though his intentions my be funny - the blog just will NEVER live up to Sties!

Kimberly said...

I'm sure your boys are SOOOOOoooooo glad they went to that game...woo-hoo...Go Cougs! As for you girls...sounds like your weekend is full of fun and tons of mommy daughter bonding time. Have fun!

Anna said...

Wew saw your fine-looking men at the game. Seeing them was almost as fun as witnessing the Cougars' victory. I promise to provide the proof when I get a minute and upload pics.

♥Maren said...

Oma's comment made me laugh! I am dying to know... did she make it thru P&P?!?

shilo said...

GO COUGARS!!! I am actually jealous of your boys getting to be in Texas to watch the cougs pull out a major upset. It was a good one. Very intense. I love me some quality girly time, but I am so excited to have a little boy!
