Weekend Recap: It was all fun + games till I had to go to the bathroom

I know it's human nature, but it seems like no matter how much I get, I always want more - more chocolate, more wine, and more time on my weekends! Especially this fabulous birthday weekend of me turning the big 2-5. I'm halfway to 50 now (my young hubby keeps reminding me). We finally had beautiful springtime weather so we wanted to be outside as much as possible. The weekend was truly perfect... until I had to go to the bathroom.

But let's start at the beginning...

Woke up to this on Saturday, my birthday morning.

Parks made me breakfast - whole grain eggos + a sliced orange and kiwi.

He took me shopping for my present (sunglasses) because he wanted to let me pick the style.

After a workout and relaxing outside we went to our favorite place for birthday dinner.

[It wasn't until the next day that I realized my flash was off so sorry about the fuzzy iphone-with-no-flash pictures.]

I even let myself have dessert (We shared it. Although I probably could easily eat that whole sundae myself, I didn't.)

Sunday: we packed a cooler, threw on some sunscreen, and headed out to a nearby lake to enjoy the sunshine, 65-degree weather, and drop a line. {That's outdoorsy lingo for 'going fishing'.}

And when I say we go fishing, I mean Parks goes fishing. What, you may ask, is the reason why I choose to join?

This is the reason, right here.

Sometimes I hold the rod and pretend to like it just to make him happy :)

So when did things take a turn for the worst? About 2 hours into the afternoon. I had consumed 2 bottles of water, a salad, and a bud light. I've been on this new healthy kick and have been drinking tons of water, which results in using the little girl's room often. Well, what do you think? Does it look like there's a little girl's room around the corner at the end of the rolling hills?

In fact, there was! I would tell you all about it but I feel dirty just thinking about it. So I told P there was no way I could use that 'bathroom'. Ok, so we drove to another fishing hole and found another little girl's room. Yay! It was just as nasty and had no toilet paper. So, naturally, I told P we were just going to have to leave, because what is a pretty-little-non-outdoorsy gal to do when nature calls and there's no recently-cleaned facility to be used? And what do you think he said? He told me I was being ridiculous and that I'd have to find a place to squat. Do you think I look like the type of girl who finds a place to squat? 

I told him no way, jose and explained the state of the public bathroom. Long story short, he remembered he had a roll of toilet paper in the back of his truck, because who doesn't carry an extra roll of toilet paper in their vehicle?! I chose to leave that as 'don't ask, don't tell' because, honestly, I really needed that toilet paper roll. After pouting for a good 4 minutes I put on my big-girl pants and, I will spare you the gory details, but I did use the bathroom. I also left the roll of toilet paper there for the next troubled woman who comes along. However disgusted I may be, I did live to tell the tale and, honestly, I learned that one should always pack toilet paper for an afternoon excursion.

I even enjoyed the rest of the afternoon. I just didn't have anything else to drink.
