Weekend Recap

What an amazing weekend it was!  Why, you ask?  Because I had no plans.  Yup, a weekend free from responsibilities and commitments.  And it was A-MA-ZING!  I've been exhausted by managing the politics at work, so this weekend was SOOO welcome.

In my ultra-relaxing weekend, I did get a few things accomplished:
  • Watched MSU whomp Indiana in college football and made some totally delish football food -- parmesan burgers and warm crab dip
  • Ordered my Christmas cards from Shutterfly - we got cute photo cards this year!
  • Bought Pete's first Christmas present
  • Baked pumpkin spice kiss cookies
  • Baked a Pumpkin Ooey Gooey Cake, one of Paula Deen's recipes that took my breath away (and I'm sure added an inch to my waistline)
  • Ordered a wedding photo album for my parents from Mixbook - thank you, Groupon!
  • Ordered my photo canvas from Canvas on Demand - thanks again, Groupon!
  • Went with Pete and our friends to watch the WWE pay-per-view at a local sportsbar.  Thank God Jess was there to keep me company!
Can you tell I love Groupon??  Also, let me explain the WWE thing.  I'm NOT a fan.  However, I married a wrestling fan, so I get to watch wrestling far more than I ever dreamed I would.  Wrestling was just one of the things I had to accept when I fell in love with Pete, and the more I watch it, the more I can see why a guy would like it.  It's the ultimate male soap opera, combining lame drama with athleticism. And only in wrestling can men wear so little clothing and not be considered a girly-man or a swimmer.  Anyway, Jess (one of my awesome bridesmaids) comes to watch with the guys, so she and I always have a lot to chat about.

The good news is that this is a super short workweek.  Work for 3 days and I'm off for 4--can't beat that.  And now for the downward slide into the long holiday weekend.  Bring it on!
