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!

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 🙂
