A weekend review in bullet points and crappy Blackberry pictures.
(and completely out of sequence)
*Apparently, I thought I was Martha flippin' Stewart this weekend. I hit up the Home Depot garden center and came home with a trunk full of flowers. I should mention that I haven't the first clue about gardening. I planted the flowers in pots and if I can brag on myself a little, I think they look pretty great. Now let's hope they live longer than a week.
* On Friday night, I stayed in while B was out watching basketball with his buddies. I watched countless episodes of West Wing and made paper flowers for the Fiesta we're throwing this weekend. I had cereal for dinner, followed by a big bowl of ice cream. Basically, it was an awesome night.
*On Saturday, we had brunch at my favorite spot (Dexter's) with my sister and her boyfriend, then I dragged** B all over creation running errands for the party. We made a trip to Total Wine (torture), Party City, Sonic for a Strawberry Limeade (heaven) and the Hispanic grocery for fiesta necessities.
Poor boy was beat by the end of the day. (He may have been a wee bit hungover from the basketball watching festivities. He's not as young as he once was.) As a reward for his productive day, I let him make me dinner. ;) We had cheeseburgers and fries on the couch while we watched The Fighter. (I thought the movie was great. Christian Bale earned his Oscar. Not sure why Melissa Leo won though. She was good but for me it was not a particularly memorable performance.)
* On Sunday, I hit the mall, armed with determination and coupons. Gap was running its 30% off Give and Get promotion and this girl is quickly outgrowing her regular clothes. I scored some decent finds in the Gap maternity section (decent so far as maternity clothes go). I also had the famous Anthropologie birthday coupon to use. With my rapidly expanding waistline, I figured I'd find some jewelry or housewares to pick up. Well, I hit the jackpot. I found clothes to fit my preggo body - at Anthro! Happy day! I'm pretty sure I hugged the fitting room attendant on the way out.
I picked up this maxi dress
Surprisingly, I think they'll work for the duration of the pregnancy as I have room to grow in both.
*On Sunday night, Kate at Elefantitas Alegres posted a recipe for soft pretzels. I saw them and it was over. I had to make them. They weren't done until after 10pm but I ate 1 1/2 anyway. SO GOOD. Thanks Kate! If you make these, don't repeat my mistake and halve the recipe - I'm missing the extra pretzels terribly. Though that rapidly expanding waistline I mentioned isn't.
And there it is - a weekend in bullet points and cell phone pictures. Happy Monday!
**Past tense of "drag" is "dragged" right? Spell check flagged it. Can't be "drug" can it? I'm having major grammar doubt right now. I'm sticking with "dragged."
