We had a very pleasant weekend. For me the weekend started Friday evening and it started off great. I was glad to hear that one of my blog friends is preggers. Congrats to TOI formerly known as MsBabyPlan. Hooray!
On Friday night hubby and I had Italian at one of our favorite restaurants then saw the movie Sucker Punch. Overall it was a great night with tons of silliness (like we usually do). The movie was pretty good--had an interesting concept. I did a lot of "girl power" cheering while hubby stared at me.
We had breakfast with a couple friend on Saturday morning. We invited them over to our house. Hubby made Belgian waffles (Liege type--see below) from scratch. Yes, he used flour, yeast and a ton of other stuff that I don't normally cook with. I usually cook waffles or pancakes out of the box (Just Add Water). Ha! He also made eggs and sausage. I'm not a fan of breakfast meat but the eggs were so delicious and the waffles were to die for. I think he makes the best eggs out of anyone I know.
After breakfast we went to a park with our couple friend and took our dogs. It was great just enjoying nature on a beautiful sunny day. After lunch we went to a birthday party for a 1 year old. She is the daughter of one's of my husband's coworkers. She was so adorable. In my usual style, I had a "open mouth insert foot moment" after I asked my husband's coworker if the interesting man that I was talking was her grandfather. She nicely said that it was her father and that "he didn't age too well." Errr...needless to say I felt horrible and my husband could not stop laughing at my blunder.
Saturday evening we had dinner with another couple (friend and fellow blogger), D. We brought over pizza from Sal and Mookies and watched the VCU vs. Butler basketball game. They have an adorable almost 2 year old son (if you check out her blog there's the cutest video of him saying "praise the Lord.") I must admit that I wasn't interested in the game at all but enjoyed the time chatting it up and playing with their son.
Today I went to church (the early service) and did a bunch of stuff after. I went shopping for household items then came home and did some Spring cleaning. I did a little packing in preparation for our BIG move in less than 3 months. I got rid of a bunch of clothes that I plan to donate. I have to go through shoes next weekend. I rearranged the attic and got rid of a bunch of stuff that I don't want to take with us to NC.
I should be embarrassed to say this but I had tons of wedding stuff from 3 years ago (left over favors, programs, disposable cameras, bubbles, gifts, etc) that were just thrown in the attic. I finally went through the stuff today. I was hoping to find money but I had no such luck. There were tons of wedding gifts that has never been used and some have duplicates. Now the attic is organized which should make it easier on us when it's time to move.
I also co-sewed a patch on my neighbor's nursing uniform. This was an interesting little adventure--the patch is on fine but the bobbing thread was doing something funky so the underside looks
a little very erratic. That's alright, we got the job done. Finally, I spoke with an old friend today and it was so refreshing.
Ok, maybe this was not such a quick rundown. How was your weekend?
