It's Monday. Yuck.

I've been buying a lot of Groupon, Living Social & Bargain Bee deals since we like to eat out. Lately, that's how we decide where we're going. Friday night Dean & I had dinner at Couyons BBQ. I had a loaded baked potato stuffed with pulled pork. It was delish!!! I hadn't been to Couyons before but I'll definitely go back.

Saturday, my parents, Dean's parents & our niece Camille came over to swim. Dean grilled hot dogs & we had all the fixings & chips. The whole alien invading my body concept is looking more & more real everyday. That was the 2nd time last week that I had a hot dog!! We had a nice afternoon with everyone.

Our plan was to go to Mass Saturday afternoon but we'd also talked about going to the movie. The times didn't really work for us if we went to Mass too so we decided on the movie & went to Mass Sunday morning. We went & saw
It was funny! I've always really liked Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds was funny too. I did like Friends With Benefits better though. After the movie we headed over to Borders to check out their going out of business sale. I found several books in their bargain book area which is a good deal in itself but then they were an additional 25% off. I got a couple of hardback books for $3.00. We ended up with 7 or 8 books for $33 with tax. I thought it was a good deal. Of course we had to have dinner. We were having a hard time deciding what we wanted so we ended up at our old faithful, La Caretta. For those of you that know me in real life, I've never liked Mexican. This is another one of those times where our tastes change. For the last couple of years I've really started eating it. I had Flautas for the first time Sat. night & I think they may be my new Mexican fave. Soooo good!!!

Sunday I spent some time in the pool & I read. Has anyone read this book?
I've been wanting to read it & Borders had it on sale. I read it yesterday. It was very interesting & I really enjoyed it.  

Yesterday afternoon I decided that instead of lounging around in the pool or lounging around on the sofa I'd go to Yogalates. I'm so glad I did. Sometimes it's hard to make myself go but I'm always really glad afterwards. How was everyone's weekend?



  1. I have read that book! I read the one he wrote before it - Tuesdays With Morrie - because a friend said, "Oh read this you will love it!" SADDEST BOOK EVER. I was SO depressed! Then I picked up this one and it was very interesting. There was a made for TV movie of it too. As usual, the movie wasn't as good as the book, but having read the book, I could like the movie a little more. When he meets the little child he burned at the end I LOST it!

  2. I have heard about that book, sounds like a great read. The movie looks great too.

  3. We haven't seen that movie yet thanks for the review.

  4. i've been wanting to see that movie! it looks hilarious :)

  5. Oh, Groupon!! I have bought a few food deals with it. My downfall is accessories. So fun. I have a beading class coupon that needs to be used. Love that site.

    Glad Camille came to visit you. Hope she was on her best behavior this weekend.

  6. Tuesday is feeling like Monday...HA!

  7. Sounds like you had a great weekend. We went to church on Sat. afternoon and swimming on Sunday. It was fun....Christine

  8. I love Groupon and I cant wait to see that movie!!
