A Weekend to Remember!

Ah, this weekend was filled with a whole lot of nothingness that meant a whole lot of somethingness! Do you ever have one of those weekends where you have nothing on the calendar...but then it turns into lots of fun little events that make it really special??


Friday evening, we joined some of Matt's work friends at Bubba's! It's a BBQ joint here in Cleveland that is owned by a former Cleveland Browns football player. We actually got to see Bubba when we were there...so it was kinda cool :) Afterwards Matt and I headed out to try to find a movie to rent...but to no avail. We checked out the on demand channels when we got home...and discovered this!

I am by no means ashamed to say that this was one of my favorite movies growing up! I love me some John Candy! And who doesn't love The Old 96er??


We started Saturday out right with a trip to Chick-Fil-A for breakfast. This was my first breakfast venture there and my chicken biscuit was quite good. We stopped by several garage sales on the way home but left empty handed.

Later on, I started to make a real dent in my new read, The Time Travelers Wife, as Matt whipped up some blueberry fried pies! I'm usually not one for cooked fruit...but I guess I'll eat anything that's fried! These babies were delicious!






Since I had already blown the day on such great food, I decided to host an impromptu fondue party for two! We made the Fiesta Cheese from the Melting Pot (which we get every single time we go) and had french loaf and tortilla chips as dippers! What a great dinner!



Sunday was filled with some serious cleaning and more reading. At first the book was REALLY confusing...but it's starting to flow a little more now and I am putting things together slowly but surely. Hopefully I can finish it this weekend when we are out of town...but more on that to come later...

I love those kinds of weekends, and I have a serious love for John Candy and "the great outdoors", that is one of my most favorite movies (along with Uncle Buck and Planes, Trains and Automobiles)!

aw, those are my favorite kinds of weekends!! and who doesn't love John Candy!? Hubs and I stumbled across Uncle Buck a few weeks ago and found ourselves reciting the lines left and right! It was hilarious! And fondue for two?! How romantical! :)

Aww.. a carpet picnic. I love those! :) As far as the book goes, my Big Sis said the same thing about it. She finished it yesterday and loved it. Let us know what you think of it.

MLD said...

Sounds like a wonderful time! My dad is a DIE HARD Cleveland Browns fan. The strange part is that he is from Upstate NY. Hmm..

I just saw the preview again for The Time Traveler's Wife and it looks SO good. I adore Rachel McAdams. Perhaps I will try to read the book before I see the movie.
