Weekend Things

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 🙂

Weekend Things

Well, I took a total of four pictures this weekend and three of them are food, so an F for me on life documentation, but this weekend was pretty chill and I think we needed it.

Seems like we’ve gone to the movie theater every Friday for as long as I can remember but there wasn’t anything we really wanted to see and my at-home movie list grows longer by the day, so we opted to stay home, cook ramen and watch something on our own TV.  Ugh, that ramen may look okay, but I found it so flavorless and I overcooked that egg TWICE!  Also, we watched The Master and… yeah, it’s unique and the performances are interesting, but I don’t know that I liked it really.  Do I not like Paul Thomas Anderson??  We made up for it all with a piece of the King Cake Emily sent us this week ♥

We hadn’t made waffles in a few weeks so it was time and Joey picked a recipe for lemon poppy seed that turned out so good!  The best things are made with buttermilk, okay??  I don’t know what we spent the rest of the day doing except maybe binge-watching Unbelievable.  Added interest because it takes place in Colorado!  Oh and I also cleaned our fridge, while Joey did some outdoor clean up and then we headed to Lafayette for dinner with Hannah, Josh and Mason.  They are looking at preschools, can you even believe it???  I cannot!  We had dinner at Teocalli and I really really like that place and it’s always good to see our best friends ♥

When we got home, we finished Unbelievable and I really loved it!  I think the world of Toni Collette, Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever sooo I was basically guaranteed to like it, but what a scary story that thankfully had a satisfying ending.  We watched all of SNL afterward and Adam Driver is my favorite weirdo!

Sunday morning at my favorite place ♥  Afterward, we made lunch salads (well Joey did most of the work) and I cooked some chickpeas, cleaned the bathroom and actually read for a few hours.  Joey was out in the living room watching a movie when I saw the news about Kobe Bryant on Twitter.  I was really shocked.  So sad that his daughter and seven other people also died.  I can’t even imagine that heartbreak those families are going through right now 😦

I went to yoga later that afternoon, then came home and we made dinner and watched the Grammys.  Now I remember why we stopped watching the Grammys but I really do love Billie Eilish, okay??  I hope you had a nice weekend.  It’s the last week of January 2020, let’s do this!
