Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I don't own anything green that I could wear to work today, so no green for me. This past Friday we had our friends Mel & Sean over for dinner. AC made a roast chicken with potatoes & baby bellas. We had a great meal and fun catching up with friends we haven't seen in almost a year.
I really think the excuse "We are so busy" is over used. The bottom line is that we make time for what we want to do. I really need to make it a point to call friends and set up get togethers or time slips away and we don't see them. Especially since we do not have children, we should be using this time to visit our friends.

On Saturday night we went to Tin Fish to celebrate Tracy's 30th Birthday!

We had a really fun night. The guys were there too, just didn't make the photos!

On Sunday we celebrated my Mother-in-law's birthday. We went to her favorite Mexican restaurant.

Gosh, I am glad that I don't stick out in family photos, I mean you hardly notice me! Being sarcastic is one of my hobbies.

We had a gift card, so we used it last night and had dinner with the Maguet's! Little TJ is getting so big! We love him!

As for exciting news today... We got our new trash & recycle bins! Our city is going to a one-hauler trash pick up. Now the cost is going to be part of our taxes. We will now have a special recycling program that weighs the recycling we put out every week and we earn credits that can be turned into gift cards for local restaurants! That's exciting, especially since all of my office recycling gets brought to my house.

Have a great week:)

Looks like you had a great weekend at all of your events. Wish our city would do that with the recycling!

Glad you had a great weekend. I need to be better about making time for my friends too.

I didn't wear green on Tuesday either - none of my green tops cover my belly now. LOL

How cool about the recycling! Our town picks up ours along with trash once a week, but no reward for doing it other than personal satisfaction.

Did anyone pinch you for not wearing green? :) Great news about the recycling - what a terrific idea they have for their system :)
