Weekend Rewind

What a fab weekend starting off a wonderful week! Friday night we just fixed dinner at home, I worked on "decking our halls" & Hubby did some work around the house. I'll take pictures once I get everything together, but decorating has been more of a process this year than it has in the past--I get tired of working and unpacking so I just abandon it for awhile and come back later. Oh well, I am getting closer!!!

Saturday morning I had to work & then Hubby & I grabbed a quick lunch at our local burger joint...it's your typical local dairy queen & they have the best fried okra & cajun q's! I think I could go there and just order a bunch of sides...but I'm not sure MY sides would benefit from that! ;o) Hubby & I originally had plans to go see a basketball game at my college alma mater, but after lunch those plans were quickly altered! My friend Andrea called & wanted to know if I was available for a date to New Moon with her and her sister! Of course!!! So...I ditched Hubby & he took Derek, Andrea's husband to the game instead. We had a great dinner at Maria's, a local Mexican place, and then the girls went to the movie while the boys headed to the game. It was a GREAT compromise since Hubby has no interest in Twilight at all!!!

Quick sidenote for movie review: It was fantastic! So much better than Twilight but still had some of the corny romantic scenes between Bella & Edward. Andrea & I decided you just can't properly portray human/vampire passion on the big screen! Overall, it was just what I was expecting & I was impressed with the action sequences for the werewolves! I can't wait for the next movie...it'll be here in June 2010.

So today we had church & then I spent most of the afternoon in the kitchen. We had a Thanksgiving dinner tonight with our small group & I was in charge of apple pie ala mode & cornflake potatoes (which some people call hashbrown casserole, but in my opinion it's not really a casserole at all). We had SOOOO much food and it was great to just fellowship with such a great group of people. We have already planned a night out for Christmas & I'm definitely already looking forward to it. I was also able to finish up most of the decorating this afternoon except for the tree...that will be waiting until after Thanksgiving.

I have a super short week...only 1 work day! We leave for Michigan on Tuesday to visit Hubby's family. It will be great to getaway but each year I certainly miss spending Thanksgiving with my family. Hopefully Hubby's parents will be able to move back soon & we can manage to have Thanksgiving with both families. We'll be back on Sunday so posts will be very limited....Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I too thought the movie was fab! They did a great job, it was wayyyy better than the way that they did Twilight! So glad you agree! I can't wait for Eclipse!
