Good Morning! I hope you had an awesome weekend. We had snow again, and it's supposed to get even colder here this week. How do you get colder than a polar votex?
Anyway, here it what I was up to this weekend!
Friday after work, Paul and I headed to Wal Mart to pick up some essentials. You know, like chocolate...
What's your favorite candy pictured?
They are all so good!!
I don't know why, but I have really been enjoying miniature chocolates lately. And by lately, I mean for the past two months!
Wal Mart was a shit show. We even went to the "nice" one. I made the mistake of going there without grabbing a snack first. I was getting very hangry, and determined there should be a law against using your cell phone pushing using a grocery cart, but that's just me.
You may have remembered me telling you how our heat went out on Thursday. When we got home from Wal Mart, Secco came to try to fix it, and fix it they did. You can read about the horrible, expensive, stupid reason our heat stopped working here. Thank you to my readers who pointed out it was similar to an AWESOME episode of Friends where Monica couldn't figure out what the light switch controlled!
Her switch ended up controlling the TV across the hall.
Mine controlled the furnace.
I drowned my Secco sorrows in carrot cake... and with some Jelly cuddles...
I freaking love carrot cake.
90% of the time, if I'm on the couch, Jelly is on my lap.
I don't know why, but apparently I am exhausted by the weekend and need to sleep in. On Saturday, I didn't get out of bed until 1:15pm. (I know, it is shameful!) This made for a very strange day. I didn't work out until 5pm, and dinner wasn't until 8:30pm!
I didn't feel like going to the gym, so I did a really weird workout at home. It was a combination of spinning and circuits in my living room.
I did the circuit 4 times.
The good part about working out at home is I can wear my ugly workout clothes without any judgement!
That night, we used a gift card from Christmas and got sushi!
My sideways sushi. I'm a blogger, not a photographer.
Paul's shrimp tempura! Why did this come out right side up?
After dinner, we picked up some stuff at Target and Wegman's. By now, it was almost 9:30pm, and both stores were dead!
This was Wegman's. I know, I can hardly believe it!
I also tried my first scotch! It smelled like tequila, which worried me,
but the taste was much better. I enjoy a strong drink.
Paul whooped my ass in Monopoly Deal as we drank our scotch.
A high class Saturday night!
** FUNNY STORY: The next day, my mom told me that on Saturday night, my dad tried his first scotch at a buddy's birthday party. WHAT ARE THE ODDS!? Father and daughter try their first scotch ever on the same night!!! We're two of a kind! (He liked it, too!)
Sunday turned into "Get Shit Done Day". I had a long to-do list and I got it all done! It included a cold workout in my carport. It was 21 degrees, but I bundled up. I really could not stand one more trip to the gym or a boring spin bike workout, so this is what I did...
Another thing on my to-do list was a quick trip to Aldi.
This is why I love Aldi: I got everything pictured for $10.74.
That's strawberry jelly, sandwich thins, deli turkey, chocolate truffles, and
two medium sized bags of sweet peppers!
This order would have cost me twice as much at Giant!
I finished the evening sipping some scotch, icing my knee, and watching Dateline and the Grammy Red Carpet on E!. You know, it would be so fun to be a celebrity. You could travel, wear gorgeous clothes, go to cool events... sigh.
Oh well, my life ain't so bad as it is. As long as I quit turning my furnace off, things should be fine!
Tell me a highlight from your weekend!
Did you watch the red carpet?
Have you ever had scotch?
What's your favorite drink?
