For those that like getting a glimpse of every day life around here, this one’s for you…
The three day weekend was just what I needed. While I spent a lot of time doing some great things, it definitely wasn’t a sit on my duff kind of weekend.
Friday Scott’s nephew’s girlfriend had a baby so we got to go see her Friday evening. We went out afterwards with Scott’s family and then ended the evening by watching another disc of Lost DVDs after the girls went to Scott’s parents for the night.
Saturday we…um…I don’t recall Saturday morning. Oh! I do recall that I got up really early and was ready by 9am. I cleaned up, did some laundry and worked on the new site. In the afternoon Jill and I went to see Sherlock Holmes. Great, great movie. I was a little hesitant throughout because they were showing so much sorcery but *SPOILER* it turned out to NOT be sorcery and Sherlock Holmes figured out by the end of the movie how it all happened. Saturday evening we stayed in and did breakfast for dinner. I made The Pioneer Woman’s sour pancakes and marmalade muffins (along with eggs and bacon of course). Scott and I ended the night with Dollhouse on DVR and the Suze Orman show.
Sunday we had a great morning at North Rock Hill. Definitely check out the podcast if you are interested. It’s one of those sermons that I think everyone can take something from. We had my family over for lunch instead of going out. Scott and I went on a run together in the park in the afternoon. I realized just how slow I was running…Scott walked with me at one point. But that’s ok! I can get faster later. Last night I made The Pioneer Woman’s biscuits and ranch dressing…but not together! The biscuits are actually on my do not make again list 🙁 They just weren’t the type I like. The ranch dressing is not the one I’ve been searching for but it’s good and I expect to make it again. Beyond that, we ate in and just spent time together.
This morning after getting up and around, the girls and I headed to the store. We got back and made mocha brownies and chicken pot pie (Do I even need to mention they are The Pioneer Woman’s?) in between getting some much needed outside play time. My family ended up coming over just because we had a half a pie left over and I had to get someone else to taste it because it all was SO good. It’s been a busy evening with One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected (WATCH THAT SHOW! IT WAS FABULOUS!) and unfortunately I’m ending the weekend on a very tired note! Very tired but very good!
On a side note I just have to mention how much I’ve enjoyed cooking lately if you can’t tell. Scott and I both agreed to quit eating out so much in the new year and normally it is so tough for me to cook. Not that I can’t, I just usually am not enthused about what I’m cooking. Since finding The Pioneer Woman’s cookbook though I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process. Finally I don’t mind eating what I’ve cooked. The recipes have very normal ingredients, the steps are easy to follow and the book itself is just fun to look at and pick recipes from. The food is rich and just GOOD. I really think Ree and I have the same taste buds! The book is only so big so I don’t know how soon I’ll tire of the recipes but it sure is fun taste testing so much great stuff in the mean time.
Anyway, I guess it’s back to school and work tomorrow. Hopefully I won’t be dragging too much considering how late it is right now!
