Weekend with the Phillips

This last weekend some of the Phillips were in town for various things. Dixie and KD had a Heritage Makers convention. Marti was going on a tour of LDS Business College. Taylor had a meeting for his work (he sells pest control in the summer). And Martha had a Stella and Dots party. Of course Corbyn had a cold, so he wasn't being his best self. (He didn't have a single cold in January, so I guess it was time.) I don't have a single picture from the weekend, so this will kind of be a loser post. But I wanted to remember it nonetheless.

Everyone came over for dinner on Friday night. I made funeral potatoes, rolls, and jello. And Dixie brought BYU mint brownies. We played a little on the Wii (which we haven't done since Corbyn was born) and just hung out. Taylor and Martha stayed the night with us.

On Saturday morning practically everyone had something, so Corbyn and I decided to get out as well. I had $10 to spend at Kohl's, so we went there. Corbyn played in the toys area while I looked at clothes for him and Peyton. {On a side note, I'm having a hard time shopping for Peyton because I don't know exactly what season it will be when she gets here. It will probably still be pretty cold, but then it could warm up pretty fast. And I don't know if people will buy her clothes, so I don't want to go too crazy just yet. If anyone has a magic ball and can tell me the answers to those things, that would be much appreciated!} We were the only ones there, so I could just listen for the music coming from the toys and I knew he was still in the area. And of course I checked on him about every 3 minutes - doesn't make for the most efficient shopping trip, but it works. I got a St. Patrick's Day shirt for Corbyn and a Valentine's Day towel for the kitchen and I didn't pay a penny! (It came to like $9.96 - Woot!)

Then we met everyone for lunch at Olive Garden. We had coupons and gift cards (which we almost forgot to use), so it ended up being a free lunch for us. Although I'm pretty sure Rog tipped the waiter twice. I think it was included in the check and then he added a tip on top of that, but I can't be sure because he didn't bring home the receipt. That's what I get for letting him pay! (It was Corbyn's nap time and we had driven separately, so I rushed out of there. Of course Corbyn fell asleep on the way home and refused to go back to sleep when I put him in his crib, so that backfired on us!)

I made everyone dinner again that night - tostadas, Spanish rice, and Malt Shoppe Memories Ice Cream Cookie Cake. And we played Wii again.

Everyone had gone by Sunday night, so we watched the Super Bowl at Bill and Mariah's. I made Bacon-Wrapped Teriyaki Chicken Skewers. And they also had a ton of other really yummy food. KD and Phat Tony came down after they dropped Dixie and Marti off at the airport, so we watched the end of the game with them.

All in all it was a fun weekend. It was nice to spend time with some of the Phillips because we don't get to see them all that often.

I tipped the waiter twice because he was so good. Ok, that is a big lie. I just didn't look. It is a good thing a married an accountant.
