We ended up having both a relaxing and productive holiday weekend, and really the only thing that could be better would be if every weekend was 3 days long. After a crazy windy storm on Friday night, we got up Saturday morning to drive to IKEA to pick up a buffet/sideboard/whatever you wish to call it. As much as I hate how busy IKEA always is, I love it so. Josh and I walk around and pick out the styles we like and plan our next house out. I like a decent mix of modern and traditional, whereas Josh is usually more traditional. Anyway, we managed to get a buffet and a new coffee table to boot (no more banged knees)! We also got a couple of pans and some mice for the cats… because why not?
And an awesome rug that may or may not be for small children… hey, we’re having kids one of these days, and now our hot wheels have a place to race. :p
Sunday we decided to start the day off right with breakfast! I have never made biscuits and gravy from scratch, and it’s so easy! Plus, we got to break in our new table outside! Exclamation points!!
After that it was movie time, and we decided our theme would be movies that we hadn’t seen in a really long time or not at all, and so it went: Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Akira, Caddy Shack and Penn & Teller Get Killed. We also watched some X-Files and Game of Thrones – how can there be so few likeable characters? Ugh.
Monday was more of the same, starting with breakfast – you can never go wrong with Eggs in a Basket.
We hung pictures from our honeymoon road trip and then it was time for kebabs and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, because what better way to finish up a long weekend?
At least it’s a short work week, right? Then it’s just counting down the days for the next 3-day weekend. 😉
