Weekend Snapshots {10/24/11}

You know those weekends that leave you completely exhausted and feeling like you got run over by a semi? Yeah, this was one of those weekends. Oooft, I'm exhausted. I feel like I could spend all week sleeping and still be tired. The weirdest part is that I didn't even stay up that late. It's perplexing, indeed. All I know is I'm going to try to get to sleep before 1am every night this week. I would say before midnight, but that's just inhumane. What am I, a nun?

Friday night, my friend and I went up to Ann Arbor to go rock climbing with my brother.  I wouldn't say I'm "getting the hang of it" just yet, but I'm trying. I get points for that, right? We stayed up there for the night and played board games. For some reason, the words "board" and "games" are the two dorkiest words ever when put together. They have zero cool factor. When someone asks you what you did on your Friday night and your answer is "played board games" it's safe to say they now think of you as one of those kids who eats their own hair in the back of class. No one wants to hang out with that kid. But I don't care. I'm a board game fan, no matter now dorky they make me. Wholesome can be fun, too!

I really think Saturday was what killed me this weekend. First, I had to drive back from Ann Arbor. Then my Mom and I went down to Perrysburg for a little shopping. No better way to kick off a Saturday. Originally, we were supposed to go to Cedar Point (the happiest place on Earth) on Saturday but plans ended up changing so we went to Wiard's Orchard & County Fair in Ypsilanti. My Mom and I went and met our family friends, the Rowe's, there who all have kids, and my brother Shane and his wife Diane met us there. We were a big group, for sure. No joke- this place was HUGE. They had everything. Apple picking, a pumpkin patch, bouncy houses, haunted houses, hay rides, a Cider Mill, a maze- the place was insane. We did as much as we could before my legs wanted to give out on me. I (of course) had a caramel apple before we left. I think I've had 3 caramel apples over the past two weekends. That has to be some sort of record.

From Wiard's, we went over to my Mom's BFF (yeah, they're still called BFFs when you're 50) Susie's house for a cookout and bonfire. First, my Mom and I stopped by the grocery store to pick up the ingredients for my Dad's world famous guacamole. Since he wasn't with us, I was in charge of making it. I've made it a few times before, but never for more than like 3 people. This time, it was for roughly 10 people, plus a few adventurous kids. I was a little nervous, but the guac came out perfect. So yummy! I haven't been to a bonfire in years. It definitely took me back to high school. I have to say, my smore making abilities were a little rusty. I'm in need of a little practice, for sure. I mean, they tasted delicious, but they looked absolutely hideous. I like for my smores to be well balanced and pretty. Mine this past weekend looked more like a deep sea creature foaming at the mouth. Whatever, at least they tasted yummy.

My utter exhaustion from Saturday left me with a very lazy Sunday. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, so I spent most of the day trying to get in a good mood. When that failed, I resigned myself to working on my switch over to Blogger, and TV watching. Oh, and cookie eating. Definitely regretting that. Can I make a life rule that sugar doesn't come within 20 feet of me? I would definitely be much more depressed, but also way skinnier. Maybe not worth the trade off.

Time to get back to regular life and working out. I went all weekend without getting my sweat on. Working out tonight is not going to feel good.
