This weekend I actually had stuff to do! Hell hath frozen over...well,it WAS freakin cold this weekend, afterall.
The kids spent the weekend with family and I was suddenly gifted with this rare commodity called free time.
Friday night was awesome! For the first time in forever, I actually got to go on a date. Say whaat?!
I was able to eat Italian food,drink wine slowly, and go see a completely inappropriate movie! Woo hoo!!
I had to photograph the wine because it is such a rare occurrence...kind of like seeing a bald eagle in the wild. You photograph that shit!
After dinner, was Deadpool! This movie is just awesome. I don't think I have seen a movie this funny in a long time. It was really dirty though--joke wise. I mean, hell, even the end credits had sex jokes. It did not hurt that viewers were able to see Ryan Reynolds' butt on multiple occasions. All kidding aside though, such a fun movie! Go see it! DO NOT take children! I was appalled at the amount of children I saw leaving this movie when it was over.
No Valentine's gift for me -- which is not a huge deal. It did, however, give me the perfect opportunity and excuse to buy some gifts from myself. Charming Charlie was having BOGO on their clearance jewelry. I got 4 new necklaces for under $20!! Score. If you haven't learned this about me already, I NEVER buy anything for full price. I am a well-trained bargain shopper. Thanks, mom!
All these new necklaces paired with the ones I had before, necessitated something to hang them on. I just had this little basket I put them in where they got all tangled. I intended to get all Pinteresty and make my own little jewelry hanging shelf, but a friend gave me a tip that Hobby Lobby had theirs at 50% off. The bargain shopper strikes again! Reality is that it was cheaper to just buy one at this price than make my own.
I also bought a journal for myself this weekend. Sure, this blog counts as a type of journal, but there are just some things that I am not going to write about for anyone on the interwebs to see. I have a private life. I keep it private. I also have a lot to say about said private life. I have always meant to start journaling and Barnes and Noble had these journals, you guessed it, ON SALE! I am two very long entries in so far. I should have bought a few!
We got quite a bit of snow on Sunday afternoon/evening. It was actually quite pleasant and peaceful to watch. I like a good snow when I don't have anywhere I have to be. I ran the snow blower for the first time on my own the next day. Woo hoo!
Best for last! This is my favorite picture because this is my favorite thing to do. Since my dear son has taken permanent possession of my Kindle, I guess I am back to reading paper books. I thoroughly enjoyed reading a good book in front of the fire while watching the snow fall outside. Perfection. The best part is that I had my kiddos back home. You can't see it in the picture, but my little Darcy (aka Derby) was snuggled up right next to me here. As much as it is nice to have some kid-free time. I always ALWAYS miss them to pieces.
