Weekend Recap and GTKYS.

This weekend, I dog-sat for my parents and stayed at their house.  It was a perfectly lovely weekend, but I really don't like not being at my own place with my own stuff, food, and DirecTV instead of cable.  But, I did get to hang out with my two favorite girls, Maggie and Emma:

Last night, Sarah and Emily came over for dinner.  Sarah made her famous guacamole, and I grilled turkey burgers.  Yes, I grilled on an actual grill for the very first time!  The turkey burgers turned out SO GOOD.  We used the Lipton onion soup mix with 99% fat free turkey, and they had a ton of flavor.  Topped with the guacamole, they were perfect.

Oh, and if for some reason you feel the need to watch the movie The Cry of the Owl with Julia Stiles, DON'T.  We really got it as a joke because Emily HATES Julia Stiles.  But it turned out to be worse than we could've possibly imagined.  

And, today the weekend officially comes to a close.  Sad.  But Sunday also means that it's GTKYS time!

Getting to know YOU

1. If you could have one of Superman's, powers which one would you want? Superhuman strength..Flight..Superhuman speed..X-Ray vision..etc Flight or speed-- definitely not X-Ray vision.

2. The best thing I ever won is....? A spelling bee when I was in the first grade.  Plus a some scholarships, especially for law school.

3. Have you ever skyped with a bloggy friend?

Never skyped period. 

4. What is your favorite Summer month?
June.  It's not so hot yet and I can anticipate all the fun things summer will bring. 

5. Pool, Lake, or Ocean?
Definitely the ocean.  I love the beach and the ocean.  

6. One of my favorite Summer memories is.....? The summer after my freshman year of college, I went on a mission trip to Ukraine, Moldova, and the Netherlands.  It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

7. What's your favorite secret bargain?
It's not really a secret, but I use a redbox code every time I get a movie from them.  Haven't paid for a redbox rental in over a year.  It just saves a dollar each time, but who doesn't love getting things for free?

8. Do you plan on or have you been watching the World Cup?
Definitely.  I'm not a big soccer fan even though I love sports.  But the World Cup is like the Olympics-- it only comes around every four years, it's a HUGE event worldwide, and I can root for my country.


  1. Do you know I've never used a redbox, much less the free code...but I've heard of them. I think there is one in my small town. I should check it out...

  2. Thanks for coming to my blog off of GTKY :)

    That Julia Stiles movie just LOOKS awful! But I like RedBox, too.
