The weekend recap

Have you ever had a weekend that would be considered completely amazing if not marred by one thing? Yep. So check it out...

Friday night we watched the Jazz pull off a pretty sweet victory and then watched Moulin Rouge which is a favorite I haven't seen in a while. I decided I too need a projector in my life because basketball (and other things) are even better when they take up a whole wall. Also, I was accosted by a friend, who I will never call old again, wielding a pillow. She apparently hit my face so hard it bled. Which is actually hilarious to me. We checked the pillow out later and found nothing that you would think could cause such damage.
This is a few days after the "incident." I swear I'm not trying to be dramatic. Just think about it, a pillow did this to me. Or Melissa. But I think she prefers to blame the pillow.

Saturday was sleeping in, a fast and really random trip to my new favorite burger place, Fats Grill, in Salt Lake. (Please don't think I've just tossed out In-N-Out, I decided I have different categories of burgers.) If you're in Salt Lake I definitely suggest trying it out. Plus if you go during lunch and buy food you can play pool for free. I recommend the Blue Cheese Bacon Burger and my compadre said the Pastrami Burger was really good. Also, the fries that come with it have just enough cayenne pepper on them to make your lips tingle. Mmm. Anyway, Saturday continued with a manicure, some guitar hero, and then Iron Man. While I really liked it, my friend Austin reviewed it here and is better at reviewing movies than I am.

On our way to the movie. Some how I got shafted and stuck in the backseat.
Me and my permanently damaged face in the backseat. Yes, I realize you can't really see it in this picture but pretend with me.

Sunday I gave up my sleeping in to see my awesome friend Mallory who was in town for a quick visit. She brought the hubster and the mini man and it was really good to see them all. I love seeing my friends happy in their lives after we've kind of spread over a few hundred miles and years. Mal's mom made us cinnamon and orange rolls and her mini man played us some tunes on the baby baby grand.

So did her not so mini man.

These girls mean so much to me, I can't believe we're so far apart now!

Sunday continued with church, a lovely dinner of chicken Parmesan cooked by someone other than me, a hilarious game night with friends and I rounded it off with a chat in the car, which I love.

I really couldn't have asked for a better weekend except for that one little thing I mentioned. Someone close to me told me they're moving away for the summer, possibly longer. I wasn't really ready to hear that but it's going to be okay. (I know this all seems very vague and that's intentional. If you want the details call me or shoot me an email.)


  1. First and foremost: I am sorry your friend is moving away.
    Second: thank you for the "Schroeder" picture.
    Third: I am terribly sorry about the injury to your face.
    Which brings me to: good heavens, you have fabulous lashes!

  2. oh i'm glad you had a good weekend amidst bad news. i loved seeing you on sunday of course, it reminded me of the old days. yesterday was fun too, maybe too much fun. key words: J C DANCING. you know what i'm talking about

  3. Your weekend sounded so fun and full of drama.

    PS If I were to rate this, I'd give it five stars...;)
