Last Weekend

So there we were reveling in the afterglow of graduation (I know how many times can I bring it up?) and the beginning of a long weekend…

Oh what to do; go somewhere? Sure why not, on Friday once all the sleepy heads got up and I had put a layer of stuff on a WIP (work in progress) I convinced them we simply had to go to the Fine Arts Museum. I had a free ticket for two and we weren’t doing anything else. Come let’s go fill our eyes with some culture. Bless their (& mine) poor ol’ tuckered out legs, oh but wow my head was filled with eye candy.

On Saturday we lounged and I made my little family accompany me on a trip to Michaels…I had a coupon for 20% off and they were having their canvas sale of 50% off. Bam ah Lam my dear internets what a savings.

On Sunday we lounged and then went over for a BBQ at a young friend’s home, he had just gotten married on the prior Monday. I took a pot of beans and it was hot and it was fun and it was HOT. The BBQ turned into a Crawfish boil (el yuck-o) So I ate beans…my family is still laughing their crazy a$$es off. Okay so maybe it is funny’ish.

On Monday we didn’t have cable TV so my Beloved was a bit bored and we lounged a bit then headed out in the heat to goof around. Went to the movies and saw the new Pirates in 3D. It was okay’ish. What I mean to say it is NOT horrible. Umm 3 thumbs up (outta 6)

A week or so ago we went and saw Priest, save your monies it wasn’t so good…maybe 1 thumb up because it got us outta the house.

And that’s it for today. How are things at your house? I hope y’all are doing well and enjoying your beginning of summer or for those down under the beginning of fall / winter.

Stay happy & live well take a minute to stop and smell the roses and if you don’t have any you can smell mine…

PS - I have been unable to leave comments on some of y'all's blogs. I hope the issue will be fixed soon. I'm reading y'all my dear internets even if I can't say so. {hugs}

so you did a little lounging...and you have 6 thumbs?

Deanna Schrayer said...

Why am I not surprised you can do a 6 thumbs up Paige? :) Sounds like you had a relaxing weekend. We did too, went to a family reunion Saturday that was much fun, and then the boys went to the pool Sunday so I got to lounge and write for hours! WOOT!
But then....Monday we discovered my car was dead, and I mean dead, it wouldn't move. So we get it to the shop, get it fixed, and empty our pockets of nearly $600! That was my vacation money dang it! So I reckon when we go on vacation in a couple of weeks we'll just have to make do with no more activity than lounging on the beach and in the condo. Oh well.

Sounds like a very nice and varied holiday weekend.

You got caught in the can't-comment-issue too.. -sigh-

Me, I'm having issues with my pics posting, as I want them.

Oh well, guess all these little "nit-picks" keep us on our toes.<--I know. Me too. I hate "Polly-Anna-ish" sayings. Bleahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... LOL.

So, you're not a crayfish lover apparently?
The museum and movies adventures sound like a lot of fun plus learning to me -best kind of entertainment that way in my book!

Jai Joshi said...

Your weekend sounds like heaven to me, Paige. What I wouldn't give just to go see a movie.

But I'm not planning on seeing the latest Pirates movie. It looks like just another round of the same jokes. Johnny Depp is great but I'm starting to get tired of Captain Jack.

Glad you guys had a good time, at the graduation and after.

Tim said...

Sounds like you did a number of fun activities! And I love the roses!

Daisy said...

I smelled your roses. Thanks for sharing them because I don't have any here.

Sounds like you had a nice few days. I like lounging. It's something I'm very good at doing. ;)

Thanks for the review of Priest Paige. We were thinking of going to see it, but i was feeling like it was going to be a flop. You saved us some pennies :)

Yep, it's the beginning of summer. It took us over an hour to get into town today because of all the unexpected early summer traffic that came to South Padre Island. And it's so hot you can feel the burn as soon as you step out of the house. So I'll be looking for more indoor entertainments like that lovely museum you mentioned.

School is out now. Not even 3 days into the summer and we are already bored. I think I will looking into discount tickets to some of the local museums.

Im hoping to be in your position on Sunday. Our party is Saturday. I wanna know who's dumb idea it was to have it at the house, lol.

I never have eaten a crawdad, cause a lobster almost killed me once, sick for 2 weeks! I'm told to never eat shrimp either...

Wish I had free tix to anything. Love Micheals shopping! Get folks presents there often. Got tons of paint n canvas just need time to play someday.

Want to see pirates anyway- Don't care about 3d really-

Blogger has been a pain lately! i'm trying a new little blog on tumblr, but don't know what I'm doing yet! (in ESR sidebar)
