Weekend Updates

Blogger World, its Tuesday. Another weekend has come and gone, which means it’s time for my Weekend Updates. I tried to think of something witty and cleaver for my opening paragraph, but I got nothing. Call it lack of creativity juices this morning. I guess I’ll just jump into the Weekend Updates.

Friday night was a relaxing evening. By the time Friday rolled around I was pretty worn out, but my plans were prefect for the way I was feeling. I spent my Friday evening drinking orange tea and catching up with a friend. You know, it’s nice to just sit down and have a catch up secession. This friend and I have seen each other around town, but never had the chance to just sit down to talk. Sadly, I was so tired I might have been worthless. But I think we both had fun. Who knows, maybe it will become a monthly thing.

Saturday started off right. Every year my church host Day in the City. This is a chance for church members to go out into the city and participate in improving our community appearance while showing God’s love. My first time to participate in Day in the City turned out great! I had a blast. My friend Jessica and I joined another Singles Class in some heavy duty yard work for a Maternity Home. Man, after three hours of pulling weeds, picking up limbs, trimming bushing, and eating two pigs in a blanket I was beat! It was hard work. After Jessica and I were done with our work we left to go eat lunch. I was so tired I could barely eat my salad. Needless to say, when I got home from Day in the City I took a two hour nap.
Saturday night I had an excellent dinner with some college/post college friends. Big thanks for Holly inviting us over for dinner. Again, it was nice to sit down for dinner and catch up with old friends.

Sunday was normal- church, read the paper, and cut out coupons. You know, I wish I was making up my Sunday route but I’m not. But I did watch a horrible movie after I read the paper. I do not recommend Third Wish. HORRIBLE! Sister #1 said it best…you usually don’t pick out bad movies but crap Ok Chick that was horrible. Please just take my advice and don’t waste your money on the flick.
Saturday night Sister #1 and I went to Hometown, USA to attend my parents and Sister #2’s block party. I love block parties! My parents have the coolest neighbors and I always enjoy seeing them. Mostly, because they tell me how good I look. Hey, who doesn’t like a good compliment? One neighbor of my parent’s recently lost some weight and looks awesome. When Sister #1 and I asked how she lost weight she replied…well, I just don’t eat. She went on to inform us that a week ago she had a small whole wheat snicker doodle cookie and gained three pounds, which made us laugh so hard. She said after the cookie weight gain she just stopped eating. Of course she was kidding, but she did cut back on her carbs. I could never give up carbs so I will not be going that route.

So that’s my weekend in a nutshell. I guess it was a pretty relaxed weekend. But I would like to leave you with this….today is International Very Good Looking Damn Smart Women’s Day. Please go celebrate!

3 pounds from a cookie?!?! Yikes! I gained six on vacation when I was on the west coast and I thought that was bad!!! (It was, but returning to the "real world" helped.)

I think I need to get a paper so I can clip coupons. I'm poor and need to figure out how to save money at the grocery store because food costs me too much money. I have to be able to have money to travel you know!

I haven't posted anything cuz my weekend was pretty boring after my Saturday. Sunday we went to Church and that was pretty much it.

And I still feel like I could use more sleep, but my body just refuses to lay there...maybe I just need to go exercise and get it out of my system.

Have you tried those coupons that you get online and they're loaded on your grocery card? I'm signed up for two different accounts and most of the coupons are for stuff I wouldn't ever use, but I figure for little to no effort it's worth it.
