The 3 day weekend that got away from me

Being snowed in on Friday was fun. You see, when I have a day off of work, I have a tendency to want to leave the house and run errands or shop.

Since our area got hit with about 5 inches of snow, I stayed indoors and cleaned, baked apple pie, read magazines and a book, watched One Day and drank a beer.






On Saturday, I went to the gym, cleaned and played WAY too many games of Angry Birds. I'm at level 5 and did get there with the help of Craig sometimes. He's kind of shocked I got addicted to it because I am more of a Words with Friends type of girl. :)

I had dinner plans with my friend Danielle to celebrate her birthday. We had plans for another restaurant originally, but we changed our mind and went to Maggiano's instead. It was my first time eating there, believe it or not.

Danielle and I shared the Marco's meal for two and got bruschetta, Eggplant Parmesan, Bowtie Aglio, and creme brulee for dessert. All were so delicious! The bonus was that I got to bring home a portion of Mom's Lasagna for Craig too.


Danielle and I both love creme brulee! Yum!


We stopped at Bath and Body Works and both got a small bottle of the new scent there, Pink Chiffon, for free. It was a Facebook promotion. I tried it out today and it smells pretty good, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.


Today was definitely the day that got away from me and I feel the same way about the weekend. It went by way too fast!

Craig and I always go to the gym on Sunday mornings, so today was no different. I had half of this bar before we left. It was my fourth day in a row getting to the gym and it feels so good to go consistently.


I was starving when we got home and I couldn't wait for my leftovers of Maggiano's and apple pie with ice cream for dessert.


After a nap with the kitties in bed, we got up and out of the house. We stopped at Starbucks first for a strawberry smoothie. We discovered something new by the sugars and creamers. The little gems pictured below. Usually they're free songs and now they have ones for free apps and books from the iTunes store. Love me some Tetris and I've already played it once today. Craig also downloaded it for the iPad. Can't wait to see what other little freebies they have to offer in the future.


Well, after meditating, I felt a bit funky and like I was starting to get sick, so I better go and relax. I am watching and listening to the Adele Live DVD while I blog. It's so good. I hope I can see her live someday. Her voice is just amazing, don't you agree?

Hope your weekend was fab!


  1. How did you like One Day? It's the book for my book club this next month, I haven't started it yet, but it sounds really good!

    And, yes, I love Adele's voice!!

  2. The movie was just ok. I tried to get into the book, but I couldn't. I hope you can and that you enjoy it enough to finish it for your book club! I did read online though that the book is better than the movie.
