Dueling seasons weekend recap
The weekend got off on the right foot when I had my boobs smashed Friday morning and by the time I got home from Hobby Lobby there was an email saying all was good and no cancer or abnormalities! Can I get a halleluyer for not having to wait 2 weeks for a callback, a snot filled ugly cry of relief and having $300 in my pocket since they don't cover diagnostic mammograms? So yeah, I was a happy girl with happy girls. If you haven't scheduled your mammogram, DO IT! Early detection is where it's at.
Saturday we were going to go try this new restaurant but the hipsters swarmed it and it was a 30 minute wait and so ungodly loud that we couldn't even think so yeah, no thanks. We walked a few blocks and went to a different place for lunch with the same general theme and they were much less crowded. Of course we had to wade through throngs of d-bags getting to and fro and basically all day long. It was like because there was a day over 60 degrees, all of the nimrods decided to spring forth.
We decided we should probably do Target and TJ's so we got those done at the worst possible times (midday) and somehow managed to not need bail money. I decided if winter was going to skip us that I was just going to wave the white flag and get some tulips...
...you know, to go with my Christmas tree from Vermont that's still on the wall?
Don't judge me.
We had a nice evening in Saturday and I made dinner despite a headache. We rented this movie called The Hollars because once I saw Margo Martindale and Richard Jenkins were in it, I was sold. It was very good and the hair scene had me in tears because I thought of when I did the same for my aunt. Then Margo just before surgery and her kick you in the teeth raw emotion was just like "holy hell, this woman better win an award for this!" There were a few casting choices I would've made (brother for sure) but if you want a good emotional rollercoaster with some fine actors, it's worth a rent.
Sunday brunch was delish...
Omelet (red peppers, onions, spinach and cheese, organic kielbasa, baked home fries and toast.
We did our final grocery run for the produce and then home to do a lower body strength session. Then it was dinner time and settled in to watch Army Of One with Russell Brand and Nic Cage. I know, right? The trailer was just too intriguing to pass it up. I also had to look up the real guy this was based on to see that Nic Cage TOTALLY overacted and sounds and acts nothing like the real guy. However, the Mr and I cracked up at the absurdity of it all. So if you want something completely weird, go for it.
What did you guys do this weekend?
