Friday, Sheff came home with his Valentine’s box from school – the weekend before, Sheff and I went traipsing around town finding stuff to make his box. It was his favorite – those Italian plumbers we all know and love – The Mario Bros! Check out how great it turned out – we were proud!
Saturday I met up with my sister for some shopping and a late birthday lunch. We hadn’t hung out in the longest time, and pretty much spent the entire day out. We got some lunch at Beef O’Brady’s in Helena and some margs, and it was perfect. We shared the steak nachos and the spinach dip – and both were delicious.
Sunday we got up, did our Valentine’s swap and headed to Dunkin for some hearts doughnuts and the pink velvet macchiato. Neither B nor I liked the macchiato much, but the doughnuts were amazing. For dinner B had gotten filets and twice-baked potatoes and the “nice” bottle of wine (nice meaning cost more than like $15, but not much more), and we had a nice Valentine’s dinner. We followed that up with watching Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel before bed. A rare steak and true crime = definitely the way to my heart.
But the real fun of Sunday was Sheff’s bball team being in the playoffs! They were the number 1 seed going into the tournament – and had an undefeated regular season at 8-0. When I tell you that sports mom anxiety is real, oh it is real. I wasn’t hungry, my heart rate was above 100 the whole time – it was insane. But they won their first game, so I could breathe for an hour. The sweet coaches handed out individual trophies and medals with the kids names on them for their undefeated season, and after that, we headed out to find food. Bennett is the only one that really ate – I think Sheff was really feeling the nerves, and I definitely was. Sheff was not on his A-game, and even attempted a shot at the wrong goal (luckily he missed, but only barely). But the eeked out the win in the championship game and are 2021 Hoover Kindergarten champs! It was really fun to watch them all come together and pull it out. I don’t know if basketball is in Sheff’s future, but this season sure was fun.
We are supposed to be getting some freezing rain today – schools were canceled today and will most likely be canceled tomorrow. B and I had taken the day off work for Mardi Gras, but at this point seems pretty useless, so I’ll end up working anyway. I hope you guys had a great weekend and are staying safe and warm!
