adventures in weekending

I desperately needed to get some serious spring cleaning done last weekend.  Clothes needed to be given away, magazines needed to be recycled, junk needed to be thrown out.  But of course, that didn’t happen.  Instead, here are a few bits of what did happen:

Downing a few happy hour beers before going to see Wonderland on Broadway (amazing show!)

Fun with my loving nephew.  We played “Floaty Balloon”, which is just a fun way of saying we bounced the balloon in the air for as long as we could!
I’m just now getting into Harry Potter.  I bought the first 3 books at a flea market last summer for under $1 each!  At the moment, I’m reading the third book, Prisoner of Azkaban.
My neighbor’s dog, Lucky is the most affectionate and loveable little thing (he even gives me hugs!).  He makes these cute grunty noises that I just adore. 

My current addiction: kale chips.  I’ve been making these every Sunday.

Get anything done this weekend (unlike me)?

    I had big plans for the weekend, I was going to rescue the plants that I am slowly killing (not on purpose), clear out cupboards, clean fridge (oh the glamour) etc but ended up doing nothing! It was kinda nice but now I am feeling the guilt! I love the floaty balloon game, the bf and I play it often (although we are in our mid twenties…)!

    What a wonderful weekend-sometimes you just need to enjoy the days off! I celebrated a bride to be and attending a recital or two John played on Saturday, but Sunday was pure, unadulterated laziness, and neither of us could get enough!

    Can we talk about how Mason need his own TV show because he is just so cute?

    It looks so fun!! Your nephew is just the cutest :) And Harry Potter is the best, I'm so glad you have started reading it!! Hmm…I'm still too scared to try kale chips, they look so wrong!

    Meghan – Haha, it's totally okay! I only used my nephew as an excuse to play "Floaty Balloon"!

    Lena – Sundays are perfect for laziness. I'm overdue for a lazy Sunday.

    Valerie – I completely agree! You should hear some of the stuff this kid says. He's like like a wise crackin' old man.

    Kaylia – I'm loving the books so far! And don't be afraid to try kale chips–they're delicious (and very addictive). They're not at all bitter like you may think.

    Everyone – thank you for saying such nice things about my nephew. He's such a sweetie pie.
    And it looks like a ton of people share my love for kale chips. Gotta' love those greens!
