Pennyroyal Tea by Nirvana
Yea, Pennyroyal Tea. It was a Nirvana themed weekend thanks to my cousin, GD. His birthday party on Friday night was Nirvana themed - I'm really glad that I went with my gut & got him the Nirvana record instead of The Beatles one. I love fitting into themes. Ha!
I cannot believe that he's fifteen already. Where the heck has the time gone?! This is the same child that used to climb on my parents' coffee table to lay down. Ha, ha! He's a good kid & pretty dang talented - he plays the trumpet, drums & guitar. He's my NOM - Number One Man. :)
Saturday morning, Paul & I left for LaCrosse to do some boating & then meet up with my cousin, Scott, that night. The boating was something. We were boating on the Black River/Mississippi & it was wavy! It was horrible! My body still hurts from all the bouncing around. At one point, a wave went completely over the boat & soaked us. At that point, we decided to turn it around. But then we just got to hang out for about an hour & a half as a barge went through the lock.
Once we got to the hotel, we got the river smell off of us - I had to get in the water twice to pee. Yes, I am not ashamed, I peed in the river! Tee hee! But we got all cleaned up, my cousin met us & we went out to dinner at this nice place called Piggy's (the name still makes me giggle) & then we went out to the 70's themed martini bar. It was amazing! We had some good Nerd Talk & I enjoyed one too many martinis - one Snickers & two Chocolate Monkeys. Yum!
Sunday, we drove to Albert Lea to meet to pick up Sunshine. The ride back home was horrible, we were all so tired & just wanted to be home. Plus, after listening to the Packers not only lose the game but Jordy Nelson for the season, it was a tough four hour ride home. But all in all, a pretty good weekend. I enjoyed immensely! :)
