weekend round-up

Friday Friday do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Headed out to my brother's place for a family Wii party. And did we ever Wii!! Marc and I don't have a video game system so it's always fun (and still a novelty) to spend an entire evening playing silly games. And I gotta say, the Wii canoeing kicked my butt! It's so hard!! Of course as soon as I started playing I started giggling which likely didn't help my game any. But fun nonetheless.

Saturday guess what?? We had one of THE most miserable days yet. Freezing cold, rain and wind. Awesome. As a result, we hid from it all at the movies with our friend Dennis (full movie reviews were posted earlier) and ate snacks. Post-movies we picked up my folks and went for a comfort food dinner at Ripe and headed home to finish off our season of Dexter.

Sunday we woke up and almost almost put on a fire in our fireplace. In August. It was sad. Thankfully it warmed up eventually and I was able to at least hang out some laundry and meet up with a friend to run the puppies. In the sun no less!!! Wha??? Off to return Dexter and pick up the 2nd season of Mad Men and home to one of Marc's top meals ever. Perfectly cooked and encrusted rib roast, roasted potatoes, roasted carrots, roasted shallots and lovely sauteed red and white swiss chard. Seriously, best meal ever. If only there had been brownies. Oh wait, I was too lazy to make any! I did make hot chocolate from scratch though so that's gotta count for something. I even threw in some Fireball for good measure. chocolate and cinnamon booze.....
