I'm sure you guys get tired of reading blogger excuses. Like, "I didn't take any photos this weekend" and I really don't have a lot of new content other than what I posted on Instagram already.. but that's all I got for you today. I took a FEW photos with the fancy camera this weekend, mostly of the cat (who's surprised!?)... but I just feel weird about bringing out my camera. I feel like it has to be a legit/important event to haul out the "big" camera. It just feels different than carrying around a little point and shoot. I need to get over that, I bought the damn thing to take nice photos!
This weekend though, I think I have a decent excuse. M came down with the plague sometime late last week and this weekend involved a lot of couch and sweatpants. This doesn't differ from other weekends in many respects but I felt the need to mention that.
This Friday ... my friend Molly came over for a few hours and we chatted and I made dinner. After she left, M and I split some ice cream under the assumption that it'd help his throat. I instagrammed the following photo, with a caption indicating that M and I had created an ice cream wall between the healthy side of the pint and the plagued side:
You guys had a lot to say about that, and Syndal even suggested that germs could JUMP from side to side. PREPOSTEROUS! What, like she's a doctor or something. (;-)).
This weekend (Saturday).. I cleaned the house and M laid in the man-cave.. alternating between blowing his nose, chewing on ice cubes, and sleeping. I went over to my dad's Saturday night to watch the Vikings game (which we won't discuss after this point) and M went to watch with some of his guy friends. I could've gone with M and the guys, but my dad loves when I come over for this kind of stuff (I think he misses having me around the house) so I went over there. He was also having some of his friends over, and I've known those guys my whole life too.. so it's always a good time.
I tweeted the other day that my dad texted about beanie babies (he's trying to declutter before the wedding) and I howled that he better not throw out the Princess Di one. I'm a child of the 90s, what can I say? Mostly, I'm not crazy, but I got this beanie baby from a pen pal (from LONDON) so it seemed extra special. I'm also curious if it's worth any money, since I was smart and I kept its tag in a protective case.
Also, it's hard to not be a pack rat with some of my old things (not necessarily just the beanie babies), but when I see adorable nurseries pimped out with vintage toys it makes me want to save ALL THE THINGS.
I spent the morning Sunday chasing TJ around the house and blowing on his pooch. He HATED it and retreated to the highest point in the house.. the fridge:
Then he decided to help me with my brief...
And when he got tired of that, and decided the desk was not a suitable place to nap, he crawled his uncoordinated ass onto my lap. TJ isn't a HUGE cat, but it's a tight fit.
Annnyway, that was pretty much our weekend. I started rounding up addresses for save the dates. I have my entire side of the list finalized (dad was easier than I imagined!) and have all but a handful of my side addressed. Just need M to wrangle his side and we'll be good to go! We don't plan on sending them out until March.. but, I'm a Type A. So, that's that.
Hope you all had a good weekend! M and I have some dinner plans this week, I have that hearing Wednesday, and then my work party this weekend, so hopefully I'll have some better blog fodder ;)
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post.. the alternate title is: The Wedding Registry: WTF.
