.My weekend.

I am interrupting my Vegas recapping (I am aware that I am doing a horrible job) to discuss my weekend.

On Saturday, Sean had a rugby game. It was the most intense game this season! You can tell each team gave their all. In the end, the hubs team won and this was the game to win. This weekend, we head to NYC because they won the one last weekend. (For those of you who don't have any idea about rugby, this game is like the one leading to the Superbowl. If they win the game this weekend they get to play in the Superbowl) It is a huge accomplishment and I am so excited. They move up a division regardless but it would be HUGE if they win this weekend! Crossing my fingers, toes and praying!

Any who, Saturday evening we headed up to my parent's house. They took us out for delicious sushi to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. They are so sweet! They talked to us about marriage and gave us keys to being happily married for years to come. God is #1. I asked them to bring my little sister and nephew along because I want to be with my nephew at all times. After throwing a tantrum (didn't know that 11 month olds could do that) he passed out during dinner.

On Sunday, I went to the mall with my other little sister. We bought a few things and I picked up some Christmas decor. After some delicious Taco Bell, we decided to see Due Date. I wasn't a fan.

I am one of those people who is in love with The Hangover. I can watch it at anytime. I know the lines and I'm not afraid to watch it with you and show you my memorizing skills. It is slightly ridiculous. I've watched it so much that I pointed out 3 different people in Due Date that had tiny, tiny parts in The Hangover that also had tiny, tiny parts in Due Date. It was funny but just not that funny. I expected more and well, I didn't get it. I left thinking that I missed something and that spending $10.75 on a movie is highway robbery.

{Taking pictures at the movie theatre. All smiles before I realized it wasn't going to be all that great}


All in all, it was a really good weekend. Weekends with family are truly the best weekends. I promise to finish recapping Vegas! I don't know what Vegas did but ever since that trip, I haven't wanted to blog. I still like reading all of your blogs but just haven't had the desire to do anything to mine. I hope this is just a very short phase because I have so much to blog about!

Hope you all had great weekends too!

Hope you get your blog mojo back. I think it happens to everyone at some point. Happy 1 yr anni again...if I didn't say so before.

Oh Faith, you are like my hubs for remembering people with tiny roles here and there. Congrats for your hubs' rugby team. I love your parents' smiles.

Melissa said...

I saw Due Date to and HATED it! It really wasn't funny at all!

Congrats to your husband and his team for winning! Fingers crossed that they win again this week! :)

Happy Anniversary. Woohoo! You better get back into the swing of things young lady because I'm waiting for the full Vegas update. LOL. Kidding. Did you go to Vegas and get baby brain by any chance? Hmmm...

So great that you guys spent some time with your parents (and they do have beautiful smiles). BTW...I love your nephew. He is so freaking cute.

About the recipe, I'll try to write it down and send it to you. I'm so bad at knowing exactly what proportions of stuff I put in food because I don't measure it usually. But I'll try my best.

I love your family. Esp. your nephew for his 'tude. I had a lot of 'tude when I was a kid so I can appreciate that. And rock on to Seans rugby game: fingers & toes crossed.

And don't worry about no blogging for a bit. Everyone needs a vacation. We'll be here when you come back. I love you honey-bunny!

I've been debating on seeing Due date and I just made up my mind!
I'm so jealous that you can just hop into new york for the weekend!
I have to take a 30minute flight to get there just to enjoy the weekend without half of it driving!!

Sounds like a nice weekend, such cute photos of the fam!

I'm with ya on the prices of movies- back when we were younger, it was less than that to get a tix, a popcorn, drink, and candy. UGH- am I really getting THAT old!!?

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! =) Your parents are too cute! I have heard a lot of mixed reviews on Due Date -- I think that's going ot be a Netflix movie for us.

My Dream Ring said...

Your parents seems so sweet!! And yes movie prices are out of control! Unless its something super fantastic or something our daughters want to see, we wait until we can add to it to our Netflix Queue, lol!

Awww HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I wish you to a lifetime of many more. You have a beautiful family and it definitely looks as though a good time was had by all. Nothing is better than chillin' with family. And yes, 11mos olds DO have tantrums...lol.

Sommer J said...

Best of luck with your husband's next rugby match!

What a great weekend! How sweet of your parents to treat you guys to dinner.

And yes, 11 month-olds definitely can have tantrums!!

Soooo I am one of the only people in the world who is not a fan of The Hangover. I watched it at least 5 times and really tried. Hope this doesn't come between us hehe.

Sometimes you just don't feel like blogging it happens to everyone. Hopefully you'll feel up to it again. I love reading about your life.

Your family is beautiful! Do you remember back in the day when movies were about $5 a pop? Sigh. Inflation is awful!

Jenni said...

Wonderful pics of your family!!! And hmmm. Me and Matthew want to go see Due Date, but now I don't know!! But I am EXREMELY easily amused, so I would probably love it! Hehe!!
