Weekend Recap

It's Monday again! Funny how the weekend never seems to last long enough...

Chris & I had a great weekend! On Friday, we had a surprise package in the mail. Chris' parents sent us the cutest Valentine's cards and a gift card for each of us! They are so nice to us, and I can't wait to use my gift card for something fun.


On Saturday, we went to see The Vow and I loved it! I wasn't too fond of the ending, but now that I've had time to think about it, I guess I didn't mind it as much as I thought. Rachel McAdams was darling but her character was a bit frustrating at times, and I thought Channing Tatum was as complete an actor as I've ever seen him up to this point in his acting career. Chris said that it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good...so there is a guy's opinion for you! I thought he was a good sport for taking me in the first place! And I only had to demand ask once :)

I think I have become addicted to Oreo cookies. I LOVE them and Chris surprised me with Oreo ice cream on Saturday night! Yum yum yum!


I've started reading The Girl Who Played with Fire so I spent a majority of my weekend with my Nook in hand. After I saw the movie, I read summaries of all of the books in the trilogy. I already have a basic idea of what is going to happen in this book so I'm not enjoying it as much as I probably should be. I think I'm still going to finish it, we'll see.


I love doing magazine crossword puzzles, but this one was all Miley Cyrus clues and I don't really know anything about her career except for the Party in the USA song...I actually like that one.You don't even want to see my Sudoku puzzle attempt. If I learned anything this weekend, it's not to use a pen when filling in the squares because you're bound to make mistakes!


Chris & I broke out his backgammon board and played a few rounds on Sunday night during the Grammy's. We both play on our phones, but he is much better than I am. I lost 4 straight games but finally won a couple. He says he wasn't letting me win but I'm pretty sure he was sick of listening to me whine. FYI - I don't take losing very well. It's all about strategy and luck. You can be the best at the game, but if the die don't roll the numbers you need, then you're pretty much SOL.


So the petit fours didn't work. I got through the first step of making the cakes, but I realized I didn't have a lot of the ingredients I'd need for the rest of the steps. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on an experiment so I'll have to give it a try some other time.

I did make some chocolate cut-out cookies and I plan on decorating them tonight. Here is a sneak peek! I'll share the finished product next.


Throw in a couple of afternoon naps, a delicious lobster roll from the Let's Roll It food truck, and a couple of OnDemand movies (Eat Pray Love - which I thought was TERRIBLE and Something Borrowed), and you have our weekend in a nutshell. Good times, but I wish it hadn't ended so quickly! Only 5 more days until the next one........

I also wasn't too fond of the The Vow's ending.. my boyfriend thought it was terrible so I guess I kind of owe him haha Safe House is next on our movie going list! And also- I can't believe you didn't like Eat Pray Love.. I didn't either! I think we are the only 2 girls in the world that didn't like it! haha cheers to the same taste in movies and to sweet boyfriends that allow us to drag them to them!
