Hi! How was your weekend? Did you eat ice cream with your best friends, take yourself to a matinee, binge-watch Shrill and make pasta from scratch? Same!
Friday night, we met Hannah, Josh and Mason at Community, where we proceeded to wait 45 minutes for a table. I guess people like that place and I can’t blame them, because ME TOO! Afterward, we grabbed ice cream and instead of remembering to take a picture of Mason’s face covered in chocolate, I took a picture of my own cup?? What is wrong with me! Anyway, I’m forever blown away by how smart and sweet that boy is ♥
Saturday started with whole wheat banana waffles and maybe a few episodes of Shrill before we hit up an open house in our neighborhood. It was nice, but just a tad small, plus Joey literally hit his head on the basement ceiling, ha! Later that afternoon, we went to see Portrait of a Lady on Fire (finally!!!!) and wow, it was really beautiful. I could have done without the girl next to me taking through THE ENTIRE MOVIE, though…
Joey was going to the Dashboard Confessional concert that night, but my family invited me to dinner to celebrate Wayne’s summer internship, so we spent like 40 minutes in highway traffic on our way to Chook (ugh!) but dinner was good, so it was all okay. I think Joey got home some time after midnight, when I was definitely already tucked into bed.
We super slept in on Sunday then lazed on the couch, watching Shrill for hours and hours. Felt real good, to be honest! We rallied later and did our usual Sunday chores, plus I made some treats for our cuddly pup and even took him on a walk, which was nice for both of us, seeing as I’d yet to go outside 😛
It’d been too long since we’d made pasta so we fixed that. While the dough was resting, we watched the last episode of Shrill and gosh that show is so so good!!! I really love Aidy Bryant and I thought she knocked it out of the park with this show ♥ A special thanks to my sister for not only recommending it to us, but for letting us use her Hulu account to watch it!
Can you even believe how pretty that pasta is?? I think it was our best yet! However, I sort of messed up the sauce by adding way too much pasta water and was disappointed. The leftovers are gonna soak it all up though, so I know the second go-around will be much better. During dinner, we watched our last Bong Joon Ho film (until Memories of Murder is available somewhere) and uh, I kinda really liked Okja! I’m never sure if Tilda is doing a good performance or just a weird performance, but I really enjoyed Paul Dano, Steven Yeun and that brief appearance by Choi Woo-shik.
I hope you had a nice weekend! It’s the last week of February, let’s enjoy it 🙂
