Hi, all! Since I’m at a loss as to what to write about today, I leave you with this weekend recap.
On Saturday morning I woke up earlier than I had planned. Since I was up so early I orderd myself, “Off to the gym!” Of course, a few episodes of ” The Real Housewives of New York” later, I was like, “Nah.”
J had to work (I know! On a Saturday!) so I made plans to have brunch with C Money. I ordered a beer, chatted with him about his dating life, and laughed my ass off. C Money has this knack for making everyone (or, um, most people) laugh their asses off in his presence. He also got into this discussion with me that I best be investing my money every month into something called a “QQQQ.” After hearing about all the mula I’d be saving, I thought I better just do it like Nike.
Work wasn’t the greatest last Friday. I didn’t even get a chance to post it was THAT bad, yes. My blood pressure was up way high by the time I dragged my tired body to my car at the end of the day. That’s why my mani/pedi, as well as haircut and hi-lites on Saturday was much needed R&R. I also feel prettier now!
By the time J got home from work, I was preparing to make Mushroom Chicken Marsala. I wish I could say that it came out tender and perfect. Alas, it was too tough and chewy and I wasn’t happy with my efforts. J, because he’s J, praised my dish anyway. After chatting with my mom about the unfortunate meal yesterday, she told me that I was supposed to “cut” the chicken breast into filets, not try to cook the thick meat whole. Also, I mistakenly used Marsala sauce, not Marsala wine. I capitalize “Marsala” because it was my dinner’s downfall. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
The weekend was capped off with a Sunday visit to J’s sick grandmother, (she was so cute & fiesty!) a visit to J’s fam (we passed out watching Mission Impossible III & had to take a nap in the guest room), and giant margaritas at Dun Cuco’s. All in all, a pretty sweet weekend. Now if only it was already the weekend once again and not Monday. Boo.
