Well, this weekend was much needed but can I say it did not start out the best way. I headed to Target on Friday night for some cleaning supplies and I couldn’t find my wallet so I knew I left it at work in my desk. I luckily had other cash on me or that would have been really embarrassing. So I headed home and had a movie night. I watched Dead Man Down with Colin Farrell (who is serious in my top 5 hottest male actors) and it was really good. I originally was going to watch Only God Forgives since it has Ryan Gosling but it was horrible!! It was so weird, artsy and trip-y I ended up turning it off after 30 minutes.
Saturday: I headed to my work to pickup my wallet fairly early, and since I was on the road I stopped at the fabric store on the way home. My friend Heather had been not so subtly hinting that she wanted a make-up bag since I made one for their Mom so I decided to make one as a gift for her and her sister Lynn (my other best friend – her twin) since I was going to be seeing them later for Girls night. So when I got home I did some errands and then got to sewing. Here is the finished projects.
Since we were all getting together with both girls and my second Mom (their Mom) I showered and got ready. A girls night means dressing up and taking selfies of course.
Then I realized the lighting was a little harsh, so of course I had to take another one. Duh! Haha! I really don’t like taking my picture, but you gotta document a good hair day.
So we headed out to a place called Ward Eight and I had a Moscow Mule which was really good and then I had a Stella Artois Cider. We shared some pretzel sticks with this cheese dip which was so good.
Then Lynn and I shared a Ward 8 Salad (which we sent back since the chicken was undercooked) and the Funky Apple Grilled Cheese. It had green apple, gorganzola, and caramelized onion with a balsamic drizzle. The menu was amazing and all the food was really good. The service was pretty terrible though. The waitress was alone on a Saturday night and it was a packed night so I feel bad for her but she
forgot to put our order in said the computer ate our order and then it took forever for it to come out after she placed it again.
We then hit the movie theater to see August: Osage County. This movie was brilliantly acted (Meryl Streep, and Julia Roberts most notably) and it was a very hard look at a dysfunctional family and how they cope. It touched a little too close to home and I ended up bawling at one point. It was amazing though and I totally recommend seeing it. This movie did make me realize how lucky (not that I don’t always) that I had those 3 women in my life. They helped mold me into the person I am and not let my childhood break me and make me mean and bitter. Having positive and kind people as a reference really helped make me into a better person. My Dad and brother too (can’t forget them).
Sunday: I didn’t really do much other then finish up some chores around the house, started the matching hat that I finished last week, and finished up the last season of White Collar on Netflix. I went grocery shopping and then made a new recipe that I will be sharing soon for a Breakfast Quesadilla. I also put some Valentines decorations out. I downloaded this album but this song really pushed me through my workout.
The rest of the night was pretty boring, watching TV, and doing bloggy things. I am looking forward to not having plans next weekend so I can really get some things done around the house.
How was your weekend?
Have you see August Osage County yet?
