I had Monday off for Columbus Day :) Ever since I read A People's History of the United States I have NOT been a fan of Christopher Columbus. However, if my company wants to give me a day off...I'll take it!
Friday night I saw The Social Network.
I highly recommend that you see it, but I wouldn't say it has to be seen in the theater. The first 1/2 to 3/4 of the movie were FANTASTIC. In truth, I didn't know the story of how Facebook came to be. I had heard rumors, of course, but I didn't KNOW know. Now I do :) I like to know things. However, I was ready for it to be over before it was. Never a good sign :( BUT....it is definitely a must see....when it comes out on DVD. Or, if you can't stand to wait to see it (as I couldn't), have at it. I don't think you will be too disappointed.
We went to dinner at a local Mediterranean restaurant, where I had Chicken Souvlaki.
Then, we walked over to a historic theater in town to see the movie. Dinner was delish, and as I said...I did enjoy the movie. Then it was off to a local dive bar for a few cocktails before heading home!
Saturday Daisy and I took our pups to a local farm to pick out our pumpkins!
I got a regular sized pumpkin for me, and a mini pumpkin for Louis. Louis was given the assignment of sniffing out the very best pumpkins for us to bring home:
He took his job very seriously, and in the end we were both very pleased with the pumpkins he chose! More on our visit to the farm AND our day at the dog park tomorrow for Westie Wednesdsay....
Saturday night was The Voice of Reason and Mr. Swiss' wedding reception!! As I mentioned before, they were married a few weeks ago in Barbados:
Lucky girl got to wear her wedding gown a SECOND time when she celebrated with all of us over the weekend :)
(Mr. Swiss and The Voice of Reason having their "second" First Dance)
(TVoR asked her besties to wear red shoes to the reception, to serve as non-bridesmaids. I was so honored to be included!)
(we had a good time Saturday night. i'm pretty sure this picture speaks for itself.)
(please don't ask why i have leaves sticking out of my dress. but, here's an "up close" of the jewels and color of my dress. it's photographs terribly! )
Sunday I was feeling under the weather. It had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the fact that I had a few cocktails on Saturday night. Nothing I tell you!
BFF and her husband stayed the night at my house Saturday night. They live out in the "country", so they cabbed it downtown and then back to my house with me. We all slept in, and then they headed home and left me on the couch. Saturday I watched 27 episodes of NCIS and 14 episodes of Criminal Minds. Okay, okay...perhaps I'm exaggerating. But it was close! I also discovered Lifetime Movies free OnDemand. Great. I plan to see a lot of Tori Spelling in the near future.
Monday was laundry and dishes and Kroger and dog park and reading and more TV.
I have zero excuse to not be 100% rested and ready for the week! Which is a good thing. Because I've got a VERY exciting and busy week ahead :) My week may, or may not, even include a cooking class :-o
More on that later.
