Apparently I'm Married to a Cute Doctor....

This weekend was simply wonderful. Our usual routine was interrupted by some plans both Saturday and Sunday and it was so nice just to do something different!

Saturday we woke up and headed out to an Assisted Living facility on the east side of Cleveland for a volunteer event for the Junior League...my first one! Both Matt and I had volunteered to help out with an Easter Egg Hunt they were hosting for the kids in the community and the staff's children. Unfortunately because of the weather, the hunt was moved indoors. Although the hiding of the eggs was totally lame seeing as they were just sitting there in plain view, the kids seemed to have a great time! They all came away with a TON of candy.


The woman in charge gave a few of us a tour of the facility when we arrived. We met a lot of the residents and assisted in bringing them down to the Easter Egg Hunt so they could see all of the kids. Although there were definitely people living there that were not really coherent and didn't know what the heck we were doing there, there were also those who were so happy to see us and talked out ears off. We walked through a common area where some of the residents were watching TV...and as Matt walked by...one little old lady said, "Cute!" It was hilarious! Matt fit in very well with the elderly. They think he is very handsome...one lady tried to sell him her "apartment"...AND he loves to sit around all day and do nothing but watch TV. I think he was ready to move in :)

Next we took on the role of passing out refreshments. I have to say, we ran a very well organized station! No one can pass out animal crackers and HUGS like the two of us!


We did some grocery shopping and headed home so Matt could do some work. I actually DID clean the closet! I will post more about that later this week. It was an adventure!

Sunday we went to a church service near home because one of our good friends was singing. It was such a nice time and we enjoyed a meal out with friends after the service at IHOP! (Last time we went to her service, we had to go to Bob Evans for breakfast....which I absolutely hate!! Home fries make me want to puke. Matt stepped in and suggested IHOP...one point for him.)

So after brunch, we did the whole let's get a million separate checks thing. Well the waitress called out a name and neither Matt or I understood, but Matt could see it was his credit card so he raised his hand. Then when she gave him the bill she said, "You are a doctor, right?" Um, what? Matt's initials on his card are M.D. (insert last name here). She thought because his initials were M.D. that he was a doctor! It turns out that's what she had said when she called out his name...Doctor! Ha! And Matt raised his hand like, yep, that's me :) I personally got a kick out of it. MAYBE if the M.D. was after his last name...okay...but hello?? Not before! Oh that made my morning :)

Happy Monday!

Hahaha, you don't need Noah Wylie when you're married to a doctor :) That story is hysterical. And it sounds like your Junior League excursion was a success. It also sounds like you were lucky to bring Matt home...seems like he might've thought about staying!
