Weekend Things

Oh my god, the return of the Weekend Things post!  Because real life exciting things actually happened this weekend, not just me laying on the couch because we have nothing to do 😛

My sister graduated from nursing school!!!!  I’m so proud of her ♥  It went by so quickly… for me, a person who didn’t have to do any of the hard work she did 🙂  Her pinning ceremony was cancelled and rescheduled as a Zoom call.  It was my first one and I found it highly entertaining.  The best was when someone didn’t have their microphone muted, so any time they made noise, the camera would jump to them!  Andi was less invested, apparently.

Saturday morning, we had to make ourselves scarce for a few hours because we are renting out our house once we move and we had a whole bunch of showings.  Only slightly freaked me out to think of strangers walking around my home, but masks were required and they weren’t allowed to touch anything.  First, we headed to the Wooden Spoon for breakfast sandwiches!  I forgot my mask, so Joey went up to place our order and I attempted to walk Andi in the neighborhood but he acted like separating from Joey was a death sentence and threw a huge barking fit the entire time, probably waking up every living soul in the vicinity….  After we ate our sandwiches, we took a stroll through our new neighborhood (we even discovered a little cottage bakery!) and I can’t wait to live in it!  We did some packing and grocery pick up during the day, then made this delicious dinner and watched Blow the Man Down, which we both really enjoyed.

Sunday, I woke up to pancakes (joy of all joys!) and we did a bit more packing but also stopped to 1. take a walk, 2. do some yoga and 3. watch episodes 7 & 8 of The Last Dance (yes, even I am watching).  Around 5, my mom, dad, sister and Wayne came over and look, please don’t judge me.  I don’t know what the rules are any more and it is shockingly easy to talk yourself into seeing your family.  We sat outside, at separate tables and each had our own box of take out food from La Loma.  We did a margarita cheers to my sister because graduating nursing school is a big deal and we couldn’t leave it at a Zoom call only!  My mom made a batch of virgin margs for me that had pickle juice in it, which must be why it tasted so good 🙂  I even let my mom and sis touch my bump (masks on!), but this bathroom selfie I snapped shows the bump a bit more clearly.

After everyone left, we watched the last two episodes of The Last Dance.  That part about Steve Kerr and his father though 😦  I have now gone from a person who’s only Michael Jordan knowledge came from Space Jam, to liking tweets about “the poison pizza.”  This is who I am now.  I hope you all had a good weekend 🙂

Weekend Things

Hi!  I hope you had a nice weekend.  Spring was in the air here, which means it was in the 70s and lunch was eaten outside and our little pup* just kept wanting to go sniff around in the backyard.  Joey was gone Friday and most of Saturday to go skiing so I hung out by myself and then we made the most of the time we had left when he got back.

*By the way, that little pup is feeling much better and must have just strained a muscle.  He’s hesitant to jump up onto the porch or the couch, but is otherwise back to his normal barky self.

I straight chilled by myself on Friday and it was lovely.  It’s always really hard to pick a movie to watch on my own because, if it’s any good, I’ll just want Joey to have seen it too and we can never think of things he’s already seen that I haven’t.  I went with Do the Right Thing (BlacKkKlansman is actually the only Spike Lee I’ve ever seen!) and I thought it was amazing!  What a distinct style Spike has.  Now I need Joey to watch it 😛

Saturday’s weather was soooo nice!  I relaxed until just after noon, then headed into Louisville to see my mom for a massage.  I was supposed to have a facial too, but she wasn’t feeling well and had to cancel.  I hadn’t had a massage in so long, so it felt extra nice!  Back at home, I read in the backyard until Joey got home.  We kept it chill that night by eating leftovers and watching Horse Girl (I’d actually watched the trailer for it the night before but it looked sort of creepy and I can’t do creepy when I’m home alone) and wow, I really liked it!  It was really interesting and sort of sad at the same time.  Alison Brie was so good and as soon as it flashed that Duplass Brothers Productions title card, we knew we were in for something weird but in a good way.

We also maybe Postmated ice cream, don’t judge us!

Sunday started with pancakes (it is so not strawberry season yet, but I must eat fresh fruits now or I will never actually make it through winter) and then we made plans with my mom to see Emma later that afternoon.  Got through Sunday chores before picking her up and look, I was sort of bored in the beginning because I was expecting more of a parody, I guess (the trailer made it look funny!) but then it turned out to just be an adaptation of the book.  Once I readjusted my expectations, I liked it a lot more.  And there are still some funny parts (Bill Nighy and his recurring bit about drafts and screens was so great), so overall we all liked it!  My mom invited us over for dinner afterward and even though we are usually Sunday night homebodies, not having to cook for ourselves sounded pretty nice.  I don’t love a pork chop, but these were amazing!

I hope you had some sunshine in your part of the world.  Happy Monday!
