Let's Check out the Highs & Lows

Ah Saturday.
A relaxing day, right?
Sure.
A day for yard saling, yes?
Right.
So that's what I did.
I grabbed Cheeks & went yardsaling or should I say just yardsale.
We only made it to one because Cheeks was having none of it.
The real reason, well, read on:
Cheeks decided to flip out in his "I am almost 2 years old self" at said yardsale.
Sooooo I had to pick him up.
He was in one arm, my new bundt cake pan in the other.
I don't know how I did it but I lost my footing, fell & rolled down these people's front lawn.
It was like Shamu flopping on the shore!
Not pretty.
I mean I fell, kept Cheeks from getting hurt, but rolled & took out their "For Sale" sign on their lawn.
Of course, they jumped up, I made sure Cheeks was ok, then I got up.
Tears sprang to my eyes but I kept them in.
I apologized profusely. So did they.
I quickly put him in his car seat & left.
I will NOT be returning to that neighborhood anytime soon.
Talk about mortifying.
Thankful I just got a lil scrape on my right leg.....the babe, totally unharmed!



On a high....Bobster & I went to the
Collingswood Farmer's Market today, So we are walking along, checking it out (buying some herbs, squash, ya know supporting local farmers) when I hear someone & see someone. So I saunter over to see what this person is demonstrating & then I realize who it is.
It's my boy!
My boy from The Next Food Network star.
Aaron!




I got so excited.
I mean like my stomach did a little dance & I grabbed Bobster's arm & was like:
OMG! That's Aaron, Bobster, that's Aaron.
I am so pulling for him.
Bobster thought I was nuts.
I managed to get a pic on my cell but it's not the greatest.
There he was.
In the next town over from mine.
Literally 6 minutes from my house.
He is a local boy.
From Camden...which is close to where I live....about 10 minutes away.
Not the best town but Aaron is from there so who cares!
Bobster is also from Camden but got out when the getting was good.


Anywho, I am just so darn excited.
So there is my highs & lows for the weekend.


Woops out!

OMG! So sorry about your fall! It happens to us all at one time or another... So don't feel bad... I am glad everyone is uninjured. {{{hugs}}}

Ouch Meghan! I am glad that you and Cheeks are fine. Sorry, but I had to laugh at the whale comment. YOU NOT a whale.

Oh wow! How exciting! Glad that you had some high to go with your low today.

Sorry about your boo-boo (to the leg and the pride!) but I'm glad you got to see Aaron!

Hugs!

Meghan,
I have fallen before with the baby in my arms, so I understand completely. Glad you weren't hurt.

How is that farmers market? I want to go but the kids activities always got in the way. Now it's finally over so my first venture will be next weekend!!!
