weekend recap

This weekend was mostly busy & definitely wonderful.

Friday evening Jboy had another TBall game. He’s doing so well & really learning how to play. I think at the next game the coaches may start actually telling them when they’re out. So far they haven’t gone over that at all, but it’s time. This game may have been played in April but, boy, was it cold out there. The wind didn’t help matters at all. Chris has been so cold natured lately & he was freezing. He made good use of his mom’s About Town Blanket from Thirty-One.

We’ll definitely need to be getting one of these soon. I have several items from Thirty-One & love them all. Have you heard of them?

Jboy spent Friday night with Chris’ parents, so we had a little mini-date. Every day that I take Jboy to school I pass a little Japanese restaurant called Sake Express. We decided to give it a try that night & it was good! I think next time I’ll ask for some teriyaki sauce for my chicken, but overall we were both very pleased.

After searching on Netflix we started watching a really lame horror movie, The Legend of Bloody Mary. About ten minutes into it we decided to turn it off & find something better to watch. Haha. We finally decided on Black Swan.

What an interesting movie. Natalie Portman definitely deserved her Best Actress Oscar for this role. The movie is very dark, and not one that I’d recommend watching in mixed company or with your parents. LOL

Saturday morning we slept in a bit & then Chris’ parents picked us up at around noon. We went to lunch at one of Chris & his mom’s favorite wings places & then headed to a cemetery. Wait, what? Ha. Chris’ dad is really into the Civil War, and for his birthday last week we had given him a picture of his great-grandfather we’d found on Ancestry.com. He had fought in the Civil War & turns out he’s buried not too far from where we live. It was a beautiful day {really windy, though} and it was interesting to visit where some of Chris’ relatives are buried.

We came home & had some time to kill before heading over to the Clavell’s house for dinner & games. I’d been working on reorganizing the pantry {yes, again}, and needed a few more baskets so I made a quick run to The Dollar Tree to pick them up. I don’t go in there too often, and hadn’t paid much attention to their baskets, etc, but they have a lot to choose from. Here are the one’s I chose.

The pantry’s all organized now & I love it.

I bought a shelf for our canned good & it’s the best thing ever. My OCD self hated just having the cans in there all willy nilly. Much better. And, now it’s easier to see what we have & will need to shop for.

After my {kinda} quick pantry re-do it was time to head to Michael & Lisa’s. We enjoyed a tasty dinner of turkey burgers, chips & dip! I discovered something that may sound redundant, but boy was it delicious; dipping sour cream & onion potato chips in french onion dip. Oh. Em. Gee. Probably not a good thing for me to know because I love me some french onion dip & chips.

After dinner we played one of our new favorite games, The Game of Things. Such a simple concept but, oh, the hilarity that ensues.

Today was a pretty low key day, which was nice. This week is Jboy’s Spring Break, so hopefully the weather will be nice & we can get together with friends a day or two.

What did you do this weekend?
