Not Me Monday - Holiday Weekend Edition

In case you haven't been introduced to Not Me Monday, here is the gist: This fun game originated with Mckmama, while LittleSack introduced it to me. you just list a lot of things you "didn't" (read: actually did) do this weekend/past week. All in the name of admitting that we all make mistakes and aren't perfect.

Not a thing here. We spent half a day at Mr. Potts' boss' pool with everyone he works with. I was still only day two into recovering from a sinus infection, so just some sunshine for me. Mr. Potts, however, could stand to write a few of these. So from his perspective - Thursday.

Mr. Potts - I did not become a little inebriated on Thursday and smear cupcake frosting on my friend - a la a wedding cake smear. Not me!

Mr. Potts - I was not so schnockered that when Mrs. Potts got us home I stood in our courtyard and talked to one of our neighbors about getting drinks. I was not so schnockered that I looked aghast at her when she shot that idea down! Not me!

Mr. Potts - I did not fall asleep (read: pass out) Thursday night with the alarm clock cuddled up tight to me, wrapped in both arms like a baby. Uh uh. Not me!

Mr. Potts was on quite a roll Thursday night. Which made Friday an easy fix. We hung out with my niece & nephew & my mom and took them to a rec park with a really big pool. He made up for his showing the night before by riding down the water slide with my niece over and over.
The rest of the weekend was not really "Not Me" worthy, but to recap, we had about 20 people over on Saturday night and barbecued. We live just off of a bridge which provides us a great view of the fireworks. Great times had by all & we were able to see some people we hadn't seen in a while.
Last night, two of our neighbors invited us over for dinner. It was really good, even though I'm not a fan of mushrooms. They were part of the chicken, so I gamely tried to eat some. Ick.

How was your holiday weekend?

And curiously, any of you have food that you just can't eat? Whether it is a texture thing, you're allergic, etc.

The countdown is ON!!! In 5 days Mr. Potts and I will be leaving for the Outer Banks! Vacation - I can seeeeeeee you!!!

Pretty much, as long as food hasn't been sitting out with flies all over it, I'll probably eat it. Sounds like a great weekend. yay! You only have a few days until you're in the OBX. My HB and I stayed in the Nothern Shores at Duck just a few weeks ago. It was so gorgeous. I love it there! Don't forget to roll down the sand dunes at Jockey's Ridge for fun! :)
