Weekend Wrap-up

This past weekend was such a relaxing weekend for Will and I.  He had Friday night off, so we had the first “date night” we’ve had in a really long time.  We went out for sushi and split three different rolls along with some edamameand soup.  It was really delicious and long overdue.  Then, we went and saw Pineapple Express which was very funny.  Kinda gross and violent at times, but funny none-the-less.  I recommend it.  Not so much as a romantic date movie, but more of a ‘bromance’ movie with the guys/girls.  Anyhow, Saturday marks the first day in OVER A FREAKIN’ MONTH that we’ve gotten to sleep in until we couldn’t sleep no more.  We made it until about 11 a.m. and then I’d had enough.  Will had to work SB that night, so we just kinda hung around and relaxed.  We made breakfast and watched some stuff that was on the DVR (Psych, Monk) and then he went to work (BOO!).  When he came home from work, he brought me a couple of surprises – first being a berry stella (a pastry thing w/ oats and dried fruit shaped like a star. Very yummy)  the second being that he got his shift covered for Sunday and we had AN. ENTIRE. DAY. OFF. TOGETHER!!  I was beyond excited.  That meant TWO days in a freakin’ row to sleep in and an entire day of Will and I together.  Of course, we slept in again, until about 10:30, then we went to Einstein’s Bros. Bagels  for breakfast and then went grocery shopping (yawn! I know, but it’s gotta be done) where we bought vacuum bags (my carpet was turning black from the thick coat of Guinness hair that had over run it) and stuff to make home made pizza later this week (YUM!!)  Then we came home and cleaned house (and by that I mean Will vacuumed and I put away groceries and Windexed all the glass tables.)  Somehow we got it into our brains that taking the dogs to the beach would be a really good idea, so we packed up a gallon of water that we keep in the fridge just for this occasion, dog toys, towels, changed into our swimsuits, ran the dogs around outside first to wear them out a little so they aren’t so nuts by the time we get to the beach, and made the 5 minute drive over there.  Of course, we were INSANE when we made this decision because Mia started growling at the first dog who came over to greet them (another female, of course) and when we decided that Guinness was being good and should be let off the leash, he ran off after another dog (ugh!) and so then we put them back on their leashes and walked them down the shore line a little while.  I have to say, the ocean after a tropical storm/hurricane is pretty gross.  The water was so brown it actually looked like lake water and most of the shore had been washed away because of the large waves crashing the sand, so there were HUGE ‘hills’ in the sand to get down to the water.  Anywho, we had a really hard time keeping the dogs in check and with the gross water, we didn’t really want to stay too long, so after about an hour or so, we packed up and headed home.

After bathing the dogs and showering ourselves, we ordered a greek pizza for dinner (Yum-O!) and settled in to watch tv where we napped on the couch for about an hour.  When we woke up, we boiled some edamame and watched the Roast of Bob Saget that we had recorded and then flipped over to see that Gene Simmons was also getting roasted on A&E.  Both were very funny, but Gene Simmons had Lisa Lampanelli at his roast, and she is Hil-ar-ious!!  Don’t believe me?? Go check her out on YouTube.  She is kinda vulgar, so if you’re not into that kind of stuff, I would recommend that you stay put.  Anyhow, that is my weekend wrap-up.  I actually started this post on Monday, got busy and forgot it, so I’m finishing it today and voila!
