This weekend felt perfectly balanced between entertainment and R&R. The aching brain feeling I had by Friday, combined with unusually sore leg muscles, indicated I spent too much time last week studying and climbing stairs.
Luckily, tasty food and a good movie can cure anything.
Spring rolls - via
On Friday night, Jords and I splurged a bit at Thaifoon, a delicious “Taste of Asia” restaurant in Gateway. We ordered spring rolls, crispy coconut shrimp AND jasmine fried rice with chicken and pork. Even though we could only stuff ourselves with about half the meal, every bite was delicious. And still delicious for dinner last night. And for lunch today. Leftovers are practically heaven-sent in our busy, college kids’ perspectives.
After dinner, we definitely watched some “Storage Wars: Texas” and laughed a lot.
Here's an oldie, since we managed to spend more than four hours together without taking a picture.
On Saturday, I had a breakfast/shopping date with my bestie Kaila. We ate at IHOP (an ancient tradition) and bought the same polka dotted skirt. The matching thing seems to be a pattern. Observe:
Little freshies with matching scarves -- looks like we haven't changed much
After spending some much-needed time with Kaila (we hadn’t seen each other in at least three months and it might be that long again or longer!), I went to a darling baby shower for my sister-in-law and brand new niece! Such fun to spend time with fam.
Meanwhile, Jords was busy fleshing out his acting portfolio with a role as a Japanese game show host. He’s a natural. I so wish I had a picture of this one, for me and for you.
Saturday night, we hit the gym (just for a little bit) and rented a red box. Jords suggested The Help, which I somehow managed to not see in theaters (a total shame), and it was amazing! I probably gagged for ten full minutes surrounding the “terrible awful” part, but it was so good I loved it anyway. I don’t know how I’m so behind on movies, we’re usually pretty on top of those.
Goes to show how busy we are, I guess.
