I Heart Weekends

We had such a lovely little weekend!

Friday evening we watched Gran Torino. Have you seen it yet? Excellent flick. That Clint Eastwood sure is a talented man. Those kind of movies always make me a litty edgy but I thought overall it was really great. And hubs liked it too...which is always a plus.




On Saturday, we headed out with the intention of simply going to the post office, but ended but driving all over the city hitting up little shops and department stores along the way that we have been meaning to go to. Ha! We didn't even buy anything!! It was just wonderful to be outside in the nice weather. And we lunched at Chick-fil-a which is always a treat. They seriously have the best chicken sandwiches on the planet, don't you think?? They were also giving out samples of their new peach milkshakes, which I must say, were simply delicious. And this is saying a lot coming from a girl who really doesn't like fruit in things. By itself...great! In stuff...ick!




That evening I began the dreaded task of updating my iPod. All of my music was on my old laptop which is a huge piece of poop. My dog jumped on it so the monitor will not stay up on its own and it is SO slow! It took me about 90 minutes to finally get to the point where it was transferring songs to my flash drive! Nuts, I know. But I finally got everything transferred and it was such a feeling of accomplishment!

Sunday morning, I copied a few CDs into my iTunes and now I am all set! I even made a workout mix which I have desperately been in need of for months! Let me tell you, it is not fun hitting a wall in your running and then hearing Tim McGraw and Faith Hill belting out "Let's Make Love." Not really a big motivator if you know what I mean.

I went for a little run and spent the rest of the day reading. I finished Something Borrowed! Again, bloggy buddies and their reading suggestions come through. I really enjoyed the book and I am looking forward to beginning Something Blue soon!

Hope everyone's weekend was fantastic! Can't wait to hear about them!

Sounds like a great weekend. We don't have chick-fil-a here but after all the raving I've heard about it through other bloggers, I'm thinking I'm going to have to take a trip to the states just to try it :D

1. Gran Torino is AMAZING! Plus, it was filmed - and takes place - in my home state of Michigan. Score!

2. Chick-Fil-A really DOES have the best chicken sandwiches known to man. I'm convinced. I'm also a huge fan of the morning chicken biscuit and the chicken minis with honey. DELICIOUS!

Oh my gosh! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie! Is it out on video? I've been waiting for that so I can buy it! Also, 72 year old dad won't go to the movie house so I want to bring it to hime...I think he'd enjoy it cause Clint Eastwood just reminds me of my dad in it:p My mom is forever trying to get a hold of his potty mouth:p

We met my dad at Chick Fil-A for shakes! I had the cookies in cream. I didn't have enough guts to try the Peach, because I don't usually care for fruit in my ice cream...lol.

We loved Gran Torino. (Had no idea it was going in the direction it did.)

And, a peach milkshake sounds yummy!

I loved Gran Torino! It's hard to believe Clint Eastwood is my grandparent's age. I never thought of senior citizens as intimidating till I saw it.

I just tried the peach milkshake at Chik-Fil-A on Friday, sooo good!

Lindsey said...

Emily said...

I want that milkshake! like right now:)

I loved Gran Torino, what a good movie! I was talking about this movie with a friend yesterday...Chick-fil-a is simply magical - we don't have that chain in Toronto, it's a shame really. I did try it a couple of times while in FL, it's a blessing that we don't have any around I guess or I would be there all the time!

I always procrastinate in updating my workout music. You are so right. It can be a huge pain!

Clint Eastwood is amazing in everything he does though!

My man watched Gran Tourino while I was out with the girls and proclaimed it "probably the best movie he has seen... EVER." Guess I gotta watch it, now... ;-)

lola said...

I started to watch Gran Torino this weekend, but I got distracted and never finished it. What I saw was amazing. Now that I've been reminded that I need to finish this, I certainly will! Thanks for the reminder. :)
