Weekend

by Ally- Life as I know it, 9:28 PM
If I didn't do anything else this weekend that would have been fine because I finally accomplished two things I had been putting off for far too long, got my oil changed and finished The Girl on the Train. No more praying I'll get to work safely without my car breaking down. I know that most everyone loved The Girl on the Train but honestly the ending was kind of lame in my opinion. Not that I expected it, because I didn't at all, I just thought it was going to have this crazy twist and it really didn't. 


Friday I was at work late, story of my life, so I came home and went straight to bed. Fun stuff. Saturday, Theo and I had brunch at one of our favorite little local joints, Livelihood Cafe. I got their sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit, so good. You can tell everything is so fresh. Plus I love supporting local restaurants.


We came home and watched Whiplash. Theo had been begging me to watch it with him, he saw it in the theaters and kept raving about it ever since. Let me just say it was hard to watch at times. J.K. Simmons plays a crazy music teacher who has the mentality of you never tell someone they've done a good job. He thinks nothing is ever good and you have to always work harder. He did an awesome job though and the young guy in the movie did as well. 


I've jumped on the Noosa yogurt train this week. My favorite thing to eat for breakfast now is Noosa and Ezekiel bread with butter. It's the creamiest yogurt and all the flavors I've tried have been excellent. It's a shame it's so expensive, but I have found it at Target for about 30 cents less than Harris Teeter.


We finished the weekend with Sunday dinner at my parents'. It used to be our weekly tradition but we kind of stopped going over there for a weeks. With the weather being so nice and the sun staying out later we're going to start having dinner over there again. My mom made her delicious homemade lasagna. 


And I made some yummy No Bake Peanut Butter Bars. Oh man they're good. I'm talking better than a Reese's. 


Positive thoughts for the start of a new week:

  2. Glad you finally got your oil changed so it doesn't hang over you anymore! Trey tried to get me to watch Whiplash but I'd heard how intense it was and just disn't think I could handle the psychological abuse. Love noosa yogurt but agree that I wish it wasn't so expensive (I purposely won't share it with my kids because I don't want them to love it too!).

  7. I've never tried Noosa, but it looks good. Sometimes I get a liiiiitttle sick of plain, nonfat greek yogurt with berries. Don't tell George ;)

  10. I'm so glad you didn't like the ending of The Girl on the Train! I felt like I was the only person that didn't love it. I also think that the book may have gotten too much hype before I read it so I was really expecting more of out it. It didn't think it was awful I just found it really predictable, I think like you I was expecting a better twist.
