This Weekend I...

... wished it was longer.  The weekend absolutely flew by.  Which is not to say that we were very busy because we weren't.  At all.  Thursday afternoon, I left work about 45 minutes early and came home just as Donny was finishing up his scavenger hunt.  We hadn't made any plans for the evening, but Donny decided that he wanted to out to dinner then come home and watch When Harry Met Sally.  He's not really a planner, so when he actually makes a plan does, I make it a point to go with it!  :)

We went to eat at a restaurant that NEVER has a wait to get in even on the busiest Saturday night.  However, Valentine's Day is another story apparently.  We got there right before 6, and there was already a 45 minute wait.  So, we hovered over some people in the booths in the bar and sat down after only about 15 minutes.  Win.

... got a conversation heart cake!  After we came home from dinner, Donny brought out this ice cream cake for me!  I love these candies, so this was an awesome surprise.  :)
And some beautiful roses.  :) 
Then we settled in for the evening to watch When Harry Met Sally, Parks & Rec, and Big Bang Theory.  It was the perfect Valentine's Day.  :)

... made this Bacon & Pea Mac & Cheese for dinner on Friday night.  Donny absolutely loved it.  I, however, thought it was gross and ate cereal for dinner.  But then again, I don't love cheese, and this was very much cheese-flavored.  Blech...  I didn't even take a picture because it wasn't worth it for me.  Ha.

... slept in.  On Saturday morning, I slept until about 9:30, which I haven't done in forever.  It was heavenly.  (Sunday beat that-- it was 10:05 before I woke up to get ready for church!)

... watched curling.  For some reason, Donny is obsessed with curling.  I don't really understand a lot of what happens during a curling match, but I'm learning.  The US Championships were Saturday, so we watched them on tv.

... ate Chipotle.  So I didn't have to leave my nice, warm house in the snow, Donny went and got us Chipotle for lunch.  :)

... saw Safe Haven. We decided later to brave the snow flurries and went to the theater.  I loved the movie even though there were some significant story changes from the book.  After the movie, we went to dinner and then to Barnes & Noble for a bit.  I think I only added about 10 books to my goodreads to-read list while we were there, so I'll call that a victory.

... finally finished Natalie.  After church, lunch at my grandma's house, some shopping for baby gifts for babies we will be seeing this weekend, we finally made it home where this quickly became the scene:
Yep, we're reading machines.  I wasn't loving the book I was reading, so it took me over a week to finish even though it was only 240 pages.  But I finally powered through on Sunday and got it done!  We also watched Killing Lincoln on National Geographic last night, and I was slightly disappointed with it.

... woke up before the sun this morning.  And just like that, my relaxing weekend came to a screeching halt when the alarm went off at 5:45 am.  I managed to drag myself out of bed and to the gym after an extended hiatus. It felt good to get up and get going, but I could definitely tell that I forgot my Advocare Spark.  It's an absolute requirement for those 6am workouts!

How was your weekend??

  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! Your Valentine's Day especially sounded like a good time -- I want that ice cream cake! Thanks for blogging about Chipotle. (NOT) Now I want some, but the closest one is over an hour away. How does Louisville not have a Chipotle!?!?

  2. Dude. RP3 used to curl. On a team. He even, has a curling broom in his room, with the name "Sweeping Beauty" on it. I'm not even kidding.

  3. A man who goes out for Chipotle is a keeper - Can he train Nate?

    Good job getting up at 6 for a workout!

  4. I'm so confused!!! It looks like Donny in the photo but where I expect to see burnt orange and Texas I see baby blue & NC!?!? If that child starts wearing Yankee caps I am going to think he is a Stepford husband! :-)

  5. What in this world is curling?! I'm intrigued!!!

    I'm DYING to go see Safe Haven! My family went without me this weekend when I was sick...heffers, ha!

  6. Sorry you didn't get Mon off from work. I didn't get to start reading Safe Haven yet but will soon. Glad you liked the movie.
