St. Patty's Day Shenanigans & Weekend Recap

The weekends go by entirely too fast.  Who's with me?  This weekend turned out to be great even though we really didn't have much planned.

Friday night we ordered a pizza, had a few drinks, & called it an early night.  I took the afternoon off from work and went grocery shopping and picked up the new Raz-ber-Rita's.  They're pretty good.  Definitely not as sweet as the original and the strawberry, more like the cranberry which I really liked.  They also have a mango one, has anyone tried it yet?

Saturday we bummed around the house all morning.  Joe started a new batch of homemade strawberry wine, and a new batch of beer, a copper ale.  I relaxed until about 3 when we left for the Will Call event at August Hill. I love being in the wine club, we have so much fun every time we go.  This time was even more fun since Paddy's Favorite Sons was playing.  We had a blast laughing, dancing, and drinking entirely too much wine.  Our friends from out of town joined us, I was determined to drink a few green beers so we ended up taking them out to another bar in town to see Paddy's Favorite Sons play their second set. 

Sunday I had brunch with one of my favorite ladies of all time, Alicia.  Her and I go way back and the story of how our friendship blossomed is one I hold near and dear to my heart.  We were at a stage in life that we aren't too proud of, but because of it, we are still great friends!  We went to Brandy's which is one of my favorite places in town to eat.  St. Patty's is my favorite time to go because they have Scottish eggs as a special.  If you've never had them before I highly suggest trying them if you ever see them on a menu. Brandy's is the only place I've ever had them.  Basically it's a hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage battered, and deep fried.  So unbelievable!  

We also showed the house Sunday afternoon and we are pretty positive we have a buyer!  Nothing is set in stone yet, but he liked it a lot, so did his mom!  I would be so happy to sell it to a local person that I know will take good care of it.  Fingers crossed that it all works out!

On the forefront of fertility, AF finally showed!  I read online that a natural way to induce a period is by taking an increased dose of Vitamin C.  I already am taking 2000mg per day, 1000 in the morning and 1000 at night so I took one more dose in the afternoon and I guess it worked.  We will be having our baseline ultrasound done this week and should be starting injections too!  Finally we can move forward!
