Ok so clearly I am still very much a big slacker. It really wasn't always like this. Crazy! This post is just for you Georgette so you don't complain about having to see Chris's sexy swollen lip anymore.

I thought Chris would have blogged about his weekend in Seattle last weekend but he has not not gotten around to it. So I will give you the quick synopsis.

His best friend Shawn turns 30 this coming week. But with a baby on the way his wife Celeste decided to have a surprise birthday party for him a week early. She also flew Chris out there as Shawn's big surprise. Chris flew out to Seattle Friday (the 14th). He spent the afternoon with his mom before heading out to Bellevue Friday evening. Celeste sent Chris a text to let him know they were all there at the billiard place and that they had already done the big surprise. So Chris called Shawn from outside just to chat. Shawn told him he was at a surprise birthday party Celeste had planned. Chris was like oh ok well I will let you go and talk to you later this weekend. Then he hung up, went inside. Luckily Shawn had his back to Chris and Chris walked up behind him and said "Or maybe I will talk to you right now." Shawn was very shocked. Fun times. Chris spent the night and all day Saturday at their house. Then Saturday night he went to meet his family at a restaurant for a birthday dinner for his brother Bryan. Bryan also did not know that Chris was in town. So he was also very shocked when Chris walked in. Chris spent that night at his parents. Sunday afternoon he went golfing with his friends Shawn, Brad and Travis. He had a great time. Chris only goes golfing once in a while out here so he was happy to be able to go golfing with friends. He flew home on the a red eye Sunday night. It was a quick trip but he had a great time.

I enjoyed the quiet weekend. Friday night I went out with a girlfriend and a few of her friends. We went to an Irish Pub downtown Boston and had a great time. Saturday and Sunday I just enjoyed being able to catch up on my tv shows Chris doesn't like, watched some movies Chris didn't care to watch. Drank some wine and watched some hockey with my doggie. I LOVED it.

That being said I was happy when Chris got home. As much as I enjoy my "me" time I did miss him.

I don't have any pics of Shawns suprise party cause Chris didn't take any pics. But I do have a couple from when he showed up for Bryan's birthday.

That was so awesome! And great pics! They really capture the excitment and surprise of the moment! I will eventually get around to uploading my pics and actually blogging again...

It was about time! Thanks for not grossing me out every time I try to check out your blog for the latest McClees news. What are you up to this weekend? Want to do chips and salsa and a movie. Tyrone is studying so it will just be me.
