Weekend Fun

Considering we didn't have any plans this weekend we ended up being kinda busy. We did our usual Friday night dinner out. This week it was Mike Anderson's. This has always been my favorite seafood restaurant in town. I was disappointed & so was Dean. Everything was good just not great like it normally is. When we got home we bought this on pay per view.
I wanted to see it when it was at the movies but we never got around to it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE McConaughey & this movie was great!! Dean really liked it too. I highly recommend it.

I've mentioned how much it's been raining at out house. Saturday morning the sun was out so we were out too. Dean finally got the grass cut & I pulled weeds.  Between being on vacation & it raining everyday since they were a little out of control. It was soooo HOT!!! The heat index was 101 but it felt hotter than that. We ended up going to Mass & then to the movies to see
Again, I LOVED this movie. I'm NOT a fan of Justin Timberlake but he was really good in the movie. It had a lot of really funny parts too. I'm not giving anything away but there was one scene at the end that I thought was GREATNESS & is, in my opinion, one of the greatest movie scenes ever!  Now I want to see Crazy Stupid Love. Has anyone seen it? After the movie we had dinner at Portobello's. It was so good. I had lasagna.

Yesterday was our low key day. We went to Fresh Market for the first time. We wanted to get some blue cheese stuffed burgers that our neighbors told us about. We're going to cook them tonight. I was surprised at the store because I was expecting it to be big like Whole Foods but it reminded me more of just a small, local market. Then it was home to do laundry. I ironed & caught up on all my shows on the DVR. Seriously, I can't believe I'm still watching RHONY. Those women drive me crazy. Thankfully, the season's over.

Last night we went to our neighbors for dinner. They grilled burgers & hot dogs. It was to celebrate their daughter, Anna  & our other neighbor, Suzy for completing their first triathlons. Suzy won her age group. I was talked into doing a 5K. I mentioned that Lydia talked me into one in Dec. Well, my neighbor Sheri talked me into one in Nov. She's been doing C25K & is very excited about it. I'm waiting on the date so I can figure out when I need to start training. I really can't believe I'm doing this. Wendy & I were talking about it this morning. She says she wants to do a 5K & finish but she doesn't care how long it takes her. I want to finish but if it looks like I'm going to be last I'm baling! She says that's an epic fail. I see it as keeping myself from being totally embarrassed.



  1. Sounds like a great weekend! You will rock that 5K! I am excited for you :)

  2. I really liked McConaughey in that movie as well. Please send your our way. It's 108 and I can't take it anymore!!!

  3. So funny that we rented the same flick this weekend!

  4. Awesome that you're doing the 5k! Sounds like a great weekend--I haven't seen the movie but hope to!

  5. Sounds fun! I've been meaning to rent Lincoln Lawyer! Thanks for helping me decide what to rent this weekend! ;)
