Old cards, Wednesday eats and bonding

Howdy do, all!

Yesterday I made a breakfast of 1 egg, 2 white omelet with 1/2 ounce of balsamic cheddar and a banana.  (Forgot to take a pic)  I made some homemade pumpkin butter with coconut sugar.  It'll be a nice change from jelly for PB&J's and the Mr can add some to his oatmeal too.

I went through a bin in the office and found some old cards.  I'm glad I kept them, especially the ones from Grandma.  

I tried to thin the herd but I think I only got rid of about 10 cards and most from a friend who signed her ex-boyfriends name.  It was nice to see cards from our first anniversary and lists from my bridal shower and gifts from our wedding to put in our wedding time capsule.

Before I knew it, it was time for lunch.  The usual freggies and a slice of toast with peanut and pumpkin butter.  Yum!

It was time for a strength workout.  We did some torturous Fitness Blender workout that handed us our butts and then I did some foam rolling.  I've been trying to get in the habit of rolling after every workout to help my hips not feel like I'm 80 years old.  So far this week, its helped.

Then time for dinner.  Smoky BBQ chicken breast and an ear of corn with herb butter.

I love sweet corn season!

After dinner it was time to watch Spaceballs(affiliate link)  I can (did) recite dialogue.  I think as a kid it was one of the few movies my dad and I bonded over.  Well, that, The Terminator and Real Genius.  (affiliate links) Not bad movies to bond over.  It seriously sucks we are now a society that won't allow movies like Spaceballs to be made without protests, boycotts and demands for public apologies.  If you don't like something, don't see it but leave it for the rest of us who just want to have a good laugh, dammit!

Sorry...little tangent there.

What movies did you bond over with your parents?

  1. It was nice looking through old cards with you. It's a good reminder of all the good friends and family you have. The only thing is that we'll really need to start writing the dates on the backs of cards that we keep so we'll know which event they were for in the future.

    1. We do need to write dates on the cards especially when we refer to something going on currently and have no freaking clue what we're referring to 5 years later.

  2. Haha Blazing Saddles. I think my mom felt bad enjoying it with me. Well, maybe not so much enjoying it with me but wasn't sure if she should be laughing at the dirty jokes and then realizing her daughter understood where to laugh. Isn't that just it though; that we could laugh at our dumb selfs, together?!

  3. I love old cards and try to remember to date them, even the ones I send out to others. Right now I have four cards on display, long past the current month or so that I usually leave out cards I get. One is a really sweet Christmas card from my youngest son (he was planning to move out and I think realizing how much he was going to miss us), one from old friends who are also fighting cancer, and it is especially meaningful as it talks about how old friendships are something to be treasured, a lovely birthday card from my husband (my BD is 1/1), and a Valentine's card I got for hubs. Eventually they will all go in my "treasure chest," but for now I can't bring myself to put them away.

    Movies my parents and I bonded over? Hmmm, old westerns with my Dad probably, but with my Mom it was, Gone With the Wind and South Pacific.

    1. Good, then I don't feel so bad about just now putting away my V-day cards. ;-) We were going through some cards that cracked us up that our friends gave us, one written from their now deceased pup's perspective. I'm glad I kept them.

      Those are good movies to bond over!

  4. Where does one get balsamic cheddar?

  5. Mom and I have always bonded Disney cartoon movies. We both have a thing for mice and we've always gotten a kick out of the mice from Cinderella. And Aladdin is one of her favorites because of Robin Williams.

    1. I was just looking at my copy of Cinderella the other day and thinking "did I ever watch this??" I need to rectify that! Anything with Robin Williams is awesome! (Would you believe we haven't seen Aladdin? *ducking*)

  6. I love Spaceballs. Always one of my favorites. When I was a kid my folks and I watched Blazing Saddles. The first time I was too young to get most of it, but as an adult it is still one of my favorites.
