Our Weekend

This weekend, the 2WO off-campus girls had a retreat. We left Friday evening. It was such a great time to just be able to catch up with all of those girls. I took my camera, but forgot to take pictures while I was there. We ate Pizza Hut for dinner and just hung out all night. We finally all went to bed around 2 a.m. This was the first night that Zach and I weren't together since we've been married. It was pretty hard, but I'm glad I was able to spend time with the girls. We woke up on Saturday morning and had a HUGE breakfast and then came back to Upland.

When I got back, Zach had gone over to Lauren Vriezema's house to do homework, so I packed up some homework and walked over to her house. She took care of Zach and made him chocolate chip pancakes that morning. Thanks Lauren!!!

After that, we ate a quick lunch and headed to Walmart. I was excited because I was able to buy curtains. They are really simple, but I like them.

After Walmart, we ate dinner. Man that was an experience. We made chicken quesadillas with onion and green peppers. We decided to fry them. So, we heated the oil up and cooked them almost perfectly. And then, without either of us really thinking, Zach decided to start soaking the pan in the sink while we ate. Hot oil and water... TONS of steam. Thank God no one got burned... but the whole apartment got steamed up, so we quick turned on a bunch of fans and opened all of the windows and doors. We ate a yummy dinner anyways.

Zach had to work on homework last night, and Emily came over to make cookies... YAY! That was so much fun.

Once Emily left, Zach wanted me to cut his hair. So, I got out the clippers that my mom gave me, and grabbed the 3/8" guard. I tried to get all of the hair the same length and then I trimmed up his sideburns and neck. It looked great, but I was still expecting to find a couple long hairs that I'd have to fix; but for the night, we decided that we were tired so if we needed to fix anything we'd just do it after church.

This morning, Zach and I tried out a new church called New Life Presbyterian Church... we LOVED it. It's a church in Muncie, IN. Zach and I really enjoyed the sermon a lot, and the Pastor was very biblically focused. We also enjoyed the liturgy and mix of hymns and praise songs. We were both very blessed by the service. On our way back home, Zach pointed out the couple long hairs that I was expecting to see. I had an education lunch to go to at Dr. Quinn's house... it was soo good (and they told me to bring Zach next time... yay)... so I told Zach I'd trim his hair after that. We did a little bit of homework when I came home and then I trimmed Zach's hair.

*Let me just preface this story by saying that the clippers can charge and be used cordless. I had to use the cord last night to cut Zach's hair because I hadn't charged them in few months.*
I grabbed the clippers. I grabbed the guard. I turned on the clippers to see if they had enough juice to get through the trim. Zach said to just go for it. So I did. OOPS! I forgot to put the guard on the clippers. *Picture a bald patch in the middle of Zach's head*

Me: Oh my Gosh! *ran out of the bathroom and started crying on the couch... HAHA*
Zach: *Laughing* Cass are you laughing or crying?
Me: *crying*
Zach: Don't worry. I'm not mad. It's fine.
Me: Did you SEE it? I feel stupid.
Zach: Yeah... I'm bald. It's fine.

So... now I'm over it. I think it's funny. We laughed about it really hard, especially when we both remembered that I was holding both the clippers and the guard in my hands when I cut it.

So... Here it is.

It doesn't look that bad. I'm getting used to it now. I love him and he was very good about not being upset.

The rest of the day has been eating and homework.

What a great weekend.

Thank you God for so many memories is such a short time.

Well, if nothing else, it's short enough now that you'll be able to wait a while before you need to cut it again! One less thing to worry about for a while...maybe a blessing in disguise :)

It's great that Zach is such a good sport, and always has been, when it comes to haircuts! He looks fine! You guys are great. And Helen has a very good point...won't need to cut it again real soon :) Thanks for sharing. XO Mom

Zach, your head is real nice and round.

Chip and Dani Brown said...

Haha...I just like the fact that we both had haircut mess ups in the same week :) Chip was really good about my mess up too....but he wasn't bald....I wonder if he would have handled it as well as Zach. Oh Helen said...we get to wait longer before we have to cut their hair again!! YAY for that!
