This Week


It was really snowy and really cold.

Monday: snow, Tuesday: snow, Wednesday: high of nine degrees, Thursday: high of 19 degrees and Friday: finally heating up to 42 degrees.  We watched a car spin out on the highway and smash into the concrete guardrail on Wednesday morning and it was terrifying!

I watched a video of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Oscar Acceptance Speech.

Also nominated that year was Heath Ledger.  So sad that we have lost both of those amazing actors.

Joey made parmesan crisps!

Which basically means melting a little pile of parmesan cheese in a pan until it gets all delicious and crispy.  Joey decided the smell of melting parmesan was gross but he is dead wrong because I wanted to bottle that smell and use it as perfume.  So delicious.

I stocked up on Hempz.

I was almost out of lotion and definitely out of conditioner so I hopped on the Beauty Brands website and they happened to be having a half off sale on Hempz products.  If that isn’t perfect timing, I don’t know what is.

I watched the season finale of The Biggest Loser.

I’ve never watched a single episode of this show but I couldn’t find anything better on TV so I watched.  I’m not sure how I feel about how it ended/I don’t feel comfortable declaring someone else’s weight healthy or unhealthy but Twitter sure had a lot to say about it!

I decided “Flappy Bird” is the funniest game name ever.

No desire to play it or even know what it’s about, I just like to say the name 😛

We watched Mud.

I had heard that this movie marked the beginning of Matthew McConaughey’s  “acting overhaul” (which I assume means when he decided to stop portraying himself in a bunch of Rom-Coms) that culminated this year with Dallas Buyers Club.  True Story: It sucked.  So boring, so pointless.

We taste-tested our newest homebrew.

It’s not quite ready carbonation-wise, but the stout flavor is spot on!


What do you have on tap for this weekend?  We’ve got another cake tasting tomorrow morning plus picking up our Save the Dates and catching the Olympic Opening Ceremony tonight.
