The beautiful weather this weekend & early release from work on Friday allowed the mister and I to get alot of the things on our to-do list complete plus a few fun little bonuses.
My tax return was deposited to my bank account Friday, which was an extremely nice surprise for the week. I know most people think getting money back on taxes is not good, but hey I like to think of it as a little bonus every year, so please don't rain on my fun. :) And with my return, I like to buy one fun item and then the rest goes to whatever like bills, weddings, etc. So this year, we got a Wii.
I know people, I'm a little behind on the times.. What can I say? I still have a free cell phone - I refuse to upgrade to anything thats fancy and high tech. As I'm still getting the hang of the Wii, and all of its amazingness, I can say I thoroughly enjoy it and am glad we finally got one. My game of choice - Just Dance 2. It has been kicking my butt since we got it, but thats a good thing - any exercise is good exercise, plus I'm hoping it gets me into a bit better shape before the big day...
Besides the Wii, the mister and I decided to go baby shopping for some friends of ours (The Mister's Best Man) who have a baby due right around our wedding day. Now wouldn't that be a crazy mess if baby was born at our wedding. We stuck with the registry to ensure they got some of the things they were wanting, plus a few extra items just for fun. Shopping for babies is so much fun, as long as its not my baby. :)
The remainder of our weekend was spent relaxing, catching up on household chores, and of course football - well for the mister it was. I'm not as big into football as he is, but he grew up playing football through school and I was just a book nerd, so go figure. I watched long enough to watch Glee's Lea Michelle excel at America the Beautiful, Christina butcher the National Anthem, nasty Ben throw some interceptions, the Black-Eyed Peas rock it (well for what we could hear), Slash make a surprise entrance, and Usher dance without words; then I went to the other room & watched random shows like My Fair Wedding & Kim and Kourtney Take NYC. Yea I'm lame. But its better than watching nasty Ben get pummeled by what I think is Jake Gyllenhal's lookalike. I'm so glad Ben didn't win!!
Anyway, I'm glad its Monday. I'm glad the Super Bowl is over & we can get our metroplex back. I'm glad all the Packers & Steelers along with their nasty attitudes went back to their respective places. And I'm definetely glad we have our sun and we're above freezing temps. Well until tomorrow.
Have a Happy Monday Friends!
