My Unexpected Weekend

In my office area, I can't see who walks in the door from my cubicle but two of my coworkers can. Therefore when people walk in, I don't even bother to look up from my cubicle because I know that my coworkers will talk to whomever comes through that door and usually I am not the one needed so it just saves everyone time if I continue to work on my projects in my cubicle. Well, on Friday at 4:15 the door opened and some people walked in. 

Kelly: Could I help you with something?
Them: Yeah, we're looking for DJ.

This piqued my interest since no one knows me as DJ here. I popped up from my chair and to my surprise saw my brother walk from behind the half wall and then behind him was my dad. I was so surprised and absolutely confused how they were at my work that I was speechless. How did they find my office? How did they trick me and somehow drive 9 hours without me knowing they were coming at all? They mentioned meeting my roommate whom I had just asked to move in with me 3 days before and had seen my newish car and house all before coming over to my office. No one in my family has seen my car, Leighann is the only one who has seen my house, and I hadn't had a chance to tell many people that I had a new roommate because it had happened so fast. It was crazy! 

Needless to say it was an unexpected surprise. Seriously I couldn't wrap my mind around it all haha They probably thought I was happy to see them but in reality I was just so confused haha

We had a great weekend. The weekend before had been crazy, intense, and very short so I felt like I didn't get to talk to everyone as much as I wanted to. I also hadn't had time to see my dad but I had really wanted to see him so it was great to see my brother and have more one-one time with him and get to hang out with my dad more than a lunch or a couple hours here and there. We didn't do much because they had driven a lot, nothing is really close and the weather was pretty crappy but it was a very chill weekend, which was sorely needed.

We went out to a local spot to eat that I had heard about but hadn't had a chance to try. It was decent but I think our waitress was having a rough day because she was not so nice. Oh well, it happens to the best of us. Then we decided to watch a movie because they were exhausted (my dad had gone to bed at 1 and gotten up at 4:30 to start the journey; my brother went to bed at 2 and got up at 6). They had then traveled all day, which always takes it out of me. They said they wouldn't stay up unless it was a comedy. We walked around the whole movie store (they still have those around here, crazy huh?) and couldn't agree on something. My dad kept picking up dramas and saying they were hilarious. When my brother and I wouldn't question him on that he would then admit they just had a couple, really good one-liners. Finally, I suggested Modern Family because although it's not a movie, it's hilarious and you don't have to make a 2 hour commitment. You can watch as few or many episodes you want.
We watched the entire first season this weekend and all were rolling at points. It was so fun and chill.

We also did some updating to my furniture and appliances. 

My dad decided I needed a bigger tv. I decided I liked that idea.

New tv vs old tv

furniture pieces that John put together

We might have overcommitted John on the projects to make. He put together a tv cabinet and a side table. He wanted to get the projects done but also wanted to talk to his girl. Dad helped him out by holding the phone up to his ear so John could still work.

These are from Wal-mart. Can you believe it? Look nice to me

John did such a good job. This would have taken me forever (if I even ever would have finished it) Now I just need a lamp ;)

Just chilling.

 Dad brought his friends dog who he was watching for the week haha She was so good.

The note I found on Monday on my whiteboard to remind me of a good weekend with family ;)
