Girl Friday

I have not done a post in months talking about my weekend.  I am finally posting about my weekend, and it really will not be that exciting.

Tonight it is ladies night, I am meeting a friend for a girls only, let's catch up meal

plus I get to cross off a restaurant that has been on my "must try" list

The rest of my weekend will be all about my kids.  
Saturday, I am taking my 6 year old downtown for the Pumpkin Express
it's like the Polar Express but for Halloween

Then it is all about my oldest son.  He is a sophomore in high school and it's homecoming weekend, and he is not old enough to drive and the hubs is out of town (wow the stars aligned on that one)

First I will be running all over town getting him ready

then we are hosting the pre dance dinner

then it's off to the dance

and then there is the after party.
He is a little bit of wisdom I have learned....Always host the pre dance events.  As an adult I don't want to be involved in the after party shenanigans and be responsible for a pack of teenagers late night.

I will be picking him and his date up at the end of the night.  He is too young to drive, to young to uber it home (and that would be weird with the whole date thing)  so it will be me.

I feel like Morgan Freeman

and Sunday the weekend of my son continues as we go to a college fair. (eek)  Here is what I am discovering....
Being a sophomore is NOT to early to start looking, actually it is time to get on the ball

You have to have so much more then grades on your side, you need sports, you need clubs, you need to volunteer, you need a job, you need lots and lots of extra curricular activities

Getting into a college is MUCH MUCH more difficult then when I went.  Again, in addition to a high GPA you basically need to find a cure for cancer, plus wipe out world hunger.

oy vey!!


  1. You are scaring me about college applications and my kids are in 1st and 2nd!! Lordy it's going to be even worse when they are old enough.

    You are indeed the driver extraordinaire! You'll have to set an alarm so you wake up to get Matt! lol (Or I would because I pass out around 10:00). Ha!

    To answer your question I've been using Redeken the So Soft line for a couple years now and it's really helped my hair. I have to use the deep conditioner as a daily one to hydrate my mop though. ;-)

    We are heading to our friend's house with the mini BB court in their back yard tonight. I wish it was 20 degrees warmer! Have a good weekend Jill! Miss you!

  2. How fun!! You're always up on new restaurants in STL! And with the college thing he will be fine!! He goes to an incredible school that colleges know! College visits are fun though my dad loved college visits my mom not as much ha!
