Whatever Works

Kurt and I watched Woody Allen's Whatever Works today with Larry David. I loved it! It has my two new favorite movie quotes. Kurt says Larry makes him nervous (he said that when we watched Curb, too). I smiled through the whole thing. It reminded me that we need to get the next season of Curb that we need to watch.

Yesterday we when bowling for someting different to do. It wasn't as fun as I would have hoped. I whacked the ball into my knee on one of the releases, my underwire was poking me in the upper arm (now i have a bruise), and our lane didn't work well so I ended up getting screwed out of a frame.

I've made some kick butt chicken and noodles for supper. I used no yolks to keep it healthy (ha!).

We're doing Lighten up Iowa again. One week is down and I'm down 2#. Yesterday it seems like all we did was eat.

The Blind Side

Kurt and I went to The Blind Side tonight. It is a TERRIFIC movie! I can't believe how good it was! As a side note...the real life guy has got to be impressed that Tim McGraw was playing him.

Today is Day 2 of the lifestyle change/shift. I'm kinda hungry but feeling good! We only got water at the movies tonight.

I did the dreaded grocery shopping today. I came in under budget at WM but went over budget (since there wasn't one) at Targucci. I think tomorrow is going to include some house cleaning. I got a sewing machine for Christmas. I need to get it out of the box and attempt to fix my swishy pants pocket.

So another exciting weekend around here.

Long Time No Blog

Wow I can't believe it's been so long.

Happy New Year!~

Kurt and I stayed in last night. We played with the Pooper dog and watched 6 or so episodes of Big Bang Theory. Love that show! We were supposed to go to a wedding reception but we were tired and felt a little under the weather. Then -10 degree weather wasn't much of an incentive to go back outside either.

Today we went to OG and had soup, salad and bread sticks (with $2 off thanks to my coupon!) and then we went and saw It's Complicated. It was great! I found myself smiling thorough out and having some deep belly laughs. I just love Meryl Streep. She seems like a nice lady. I'm not a huge fan of Alec Baldwin but he was good too. Plus how can you not like Steve Martin? We really enjoyed it. The theater was packed (with middle aged people). We quickly walked over to the mall and bought some 50% off calendars and then went and looked at diamonds. Now it's 5:30 pm and we're in for the night and we're perfectly happy!

We had a lovely Christmas. We had Eve Eve at Mom and Dad's with the Steins. We had a special visit from Santa in miniature. The 24th I made shrimp cocktail, shrimp scampi, and lobster tails for the four of us. I have some leftover lobster so I'm going to attempt lobster pot pie. The 25th Mom and Dad and all the kids came here. We had a lovely ham lunch, then presents and a movie in the afternoon. That evening Kurt and I went and saw Sherlock Holmes. It was fun. RD Jr is HOT. I didn't follow all of it and thought it was a little long but it was worth the $5.

A Christmas bonus was seeing/lunching/hanging with an old friend (who is new again). We reconnected on FB and have picked up where we left off. Tara was home from San Francisco so we had lunch. Then she and the fam were at the movies and then I ran into her the next day at Walmart (the center of the smalltown universe doncha know!)

The 26th we left for 3 days in South Dakota with Kurt's side of the family. South Dakota was in the middle of blizzard of a century. We made it out there just fine. We had 4/6 meals the were frozen pizzas, $2.99 lunch of 15 at Long John Silvers, another ham dinner and much snacking, laughing, and game playing. All in All it was a great holiday. As was 2009 a great year!
