Weekend recap & Giveaway Winner

This past weekend can be summed up in one word…lazy. That’s usually how weekends after a vacation are spent and this one was no different. Friday, I convinced Geof to download some Lady Gaga for Rock Band and he obliged. I rocked out on the guitar and he played the drums. We relaxed the rest of the night catching up on TV and called it a night.

Saturday, we went to the mall to make some returns and went to Gamer Doc so that he could get a new video game. We also hit DQ and treated ourselves to a Blizzard. It was so good, but heavy. Once we came home, we got Up in the Air OnDemand and watched it for the first time. It was really good and I thought the cast was perfect. I also thought it was interesting that they used some people that had truly been let go from their jobs and told them to either act as they did when it happened or to act how they wish they would have acted.



Sunday, I slept in way late and caught up on some Jerseylicious. I know that it’s a ridiculous show, but it’s a definite guilty pleasure of mine. My mom stopped over for a bit and we caught some of Sweet Home Alabama and Runaway Bride. She left and Geof made his infamous tacos for dinner. We spent the rest of the night relaxing.

This week it’s definitely time to get back to reality (and the gym).

My hubby and I also saw Up in the Air on Saturday night. I thought it was really good too. I had no idea they cast people that had actually just lost their jobs. I was wondering why they were such good actors. :)

Oh I'm glad to hear you liked Up in the air!! I wanted to see it but I wasn't sure. I'll definitely check it out now! :)

Trish said...

Congratulations to your lucky winner! :)

Glad you had such an enjoyable, relaxing weekend. I really liked "Up in the Air" too, fun fact about some of those actors being real life ex-employees.

What is your favorite DQ Blizzard flavor? I LOVE the Reese's and the Oreo! Matt and I split a hot fudge sundae over the weekend just for giggles - it was so good but SO RICH! I think my body was in shock afterwards, so I know how you feel.

Talk soon! xox

What did you think of the ending of Up in the Air? My sister and I have debated over the ending and I think it is open to interpretation!
