I love weekends at home!
Last night we had pizza and watched Julie & Julia since Nate had not seen it yet. I still loved it the second time around, but I do have a minor crush on Julia Child. Nate liked it as well.
Today we "TCB" - took care of business. (Or "bidness" if you are a fan of Stringer Bell on The Wire). Elvis Presley used to wear a gold ring with TCB on it. How do I know this? Because my mom, sister and I took a detour through Graceland on our way back to WI after touring my grad school in Atlanta. But I digress...
Nate usually does breakfast on Saturday mornings. Today was homemade bacon, egg & cheese sandwiches on english muffins with coffee. After that, I finished up a care package for a family that just had a recent addition. (Pics will be forthcoming once I know they received and opened it.) Nate also built another shelf for our office/craft room closet since it was again getting a little out of control. The extra shelf definitely made room for my growing fabric collection. Our house had not been cleaned in over a month so we got that done, laundry is almost done and the outdoor Christmas lights are officially packed up.
We finished off the night going out for sushi! I haven't had sushi since NYC so it was really great. I also made red velvet cupcakes. I used a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook since hardly any of my cookbooks had a recipe (and I have a lot of cookbooks). I made them with cream cheese frosting. They were good, but a little on the dry side in my opinion. Nate thought they were really good. I think I am going to try to find a different recipe - if anyone has any recommendations, please let me know. I keep tasting the Magnolia Bakery ones in my mind....mmmmm! Oh and I beat Nate at Phase 10. I also kicked his butt on the 60 second plank position on Wii Fit, MWAH-AH-AH.
Tomorrow I have to suck it up and prepare for class which starts Tuesday. I am sort of regretting that I agreed to teach another semester...mostly because I feel lazy.
