Weekend Things

Hi and how was your Valentine’s weekend??  Ours started with a house viewing, included three movies at home and ended with buffalo chicken tacos, so I am not complaining!

We saw a BEAUTIFUL house on Friday and it even had this J+L sign in the backyard!!!  We put in a really strong offer, but we didn’t get it 😦 so the search continues!

I had made us a dinner reservation at Annette (we’ve been for brunch, but never for dinner) and though it was good, I was sort of put off by how small the “share” plates were and how long the gap between our first two dishes and our entree was.  We contemplated dessert, but decided to ditch out and head to Sweet Cow for ice cream instead ♥

Saturday started with chocolate chip pumpkin pancakes and later on, I had a manicure.  I’ve basically spent a lifetime having manicurists chastise me for not taking better care of my cuticles and it takes all my patience not to be like “YES, I KNOW!”  Anyway, my color is called Terra and I’m loving it!  We also maybe looked at four houses, but none of them were “the one.”

Back at home, we watched The Host — now that Parasite has won Best Picture, we must watch all Bong Joon-Ho’s other movies, though we can’t find Memories of Murder anywhere!! — and I thought it was great!  I’m just saying, that movie came out in 2006 and that CGI monster really holds up, plus that ending duel scene was pretty badass.  After that, we ate leftover soup and watched The Departed.  Leo was amazing, Matt Damon’s Boston accent is truly what I live for and I did not see that ending coming, but sort of feels like Martin Scorsese makes movies for and about men, you know?

Sunday started at a very busy Onefold — I won’t subject you to another photo of their breakfast burrito 😛 — and then we jumped right into our Sunday chores, including salads for the week and I made granola and roasted a beet (for beet brioche burger buns later this week!) while Joey did laundry and worked for a bit.  I hit up yoga later on and then we made Buffalo Chicken Tacos (from a recipe my sister gave me ♥) and watched Mother.  I thought Kim Hye-ja, who played the titular character was AMAZING!!!  We only have Snowpiercer and Okja left!

Please tell me what you did this weekend, I’d love to hear 🙂

Despite how it may seem from my lack of pictures — let’s talk about my dwindling photographic documentation soon, okay? — this weekend was a real good one!  I think I was twirling in our hallway yesterday, telling Joey “doesn’t it feel good when everything is taken care of and it feels so Christmas-y in here??” so yeah, that’s my mood right now 🙂

Hannah and Josh asked us to babysit Mason on Friday night and YES PLEASE!  Hannah cooked us all a delicious dinner and then they headed out and we put Mason directly to bed so we could watch six episodes of The Mandalorian since they have Disney+ played with trucks and stuffed animals and watched a little bit of Aladdin before putting him to bed.  He was NOT into that part of the evening but was more cooperative once Joey had been banished to the living room, ha ha!  We got to catch up with Hannah and Josh once they got home and I loved that part too ♥

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed on Saturday but felt better later on when we were crafting snow globes and watching The Santa Clause!  We also had our groceries delivered, made cookie dough, I read while Joey took a nap and caught several pieces of different Hallmark holiday movies and wow are those dorky.

That night, we grabbed dinner at Chow Morso (good but not great) and hit the Nuggets game.  We were both physically there but only one of us was mentally there and guess who it was!  Meanwhile I was doing things like asking Joey his top five Adam Sandler movies, ha!  The Nuggets won though and MORGXN (which is apparently “Morgan with an X”??) performed during halftime and was actually really good!  Back at home, we watch SNL and we thought that episode was amazing!!!  From the cold open to the monologue to that Macy’s commercial.  We were laughing so hard!

We didn’t wake up till 9 AM on Sunday (unheard of!) and decided to take ourselves to breakfast at The Wooden Spoon.  It was pretty busy in there but the food was amazing, as always!  After, Joey had had too much coffee and cleaned our house (yes please!) while I made salads and then when he left to go watch football I read, did laundry and walked our pup.  We had dinner at my parents’ as a celebration of their anniversary.  30 years!!!  Wow!  There were margs, apps, tacos and ice cream sundaes so it was wonderful and I only forgot to take a picture of ANYTHING, including my parents.  Fail!!!

Please tell me what you did this weekend! 😛
