The Story of Why I am a bad Camera Owner (Weekend Recap)

Hello Folks! I am back to tell you about my weekend but before I do let me tell you something. I am a bad camera owner. Not because I broke my camera or anything but because I hardly use it.  I havent had a camera for so long that I don't think to take it out of my purse and actually use it. How am I suppose to be a good blogger if I don't have pictures that document everything that I do. I am going to add that to my growing list of things that I need to improve. Onto my weekend recap.

Oh before I begin I am participating in Mingle Monday over at Life of Meg and you all should check it out. It is a great way to discover new blogs and gain new followers. I know I have a couple of folks on here that found me through there.

Friday: Hookah Time with the Girls

So as some of my followers have discovered, I am a bit of a Hookah addict. I have gotten better and have cut down  my hookah trips to usually just once a week. But it is oh so good and a lot of fun!

Anyway, on Friday I met up with L&C over at hookah and we had a pretty good time. L brought a date so me and C were each others' dates for the night. It was nice to catch up with C again because I hadn't seen her in a while. I also got some yummy grub from this mediterreanean grill next door. I am even more so addicted to hummus and pita (chips and bread). All in all it was a great evening and I came home to a clean house. I have the best boyfriend (well sometimes)

Saturday: Couples Retreat

No we did not go to some island and partake in weird couples therapy. During the day Kevin and I lounged around the house. We had some college football games on in the background but mostly I was being lazy and reading all day long.

I am currently reading The Pact  by Jodi Picoult. I am really liking it. Book Summary: It is a book about these 2 teens that grew up together and then ended up being in a relationship. One night their parents were called to the hospital where they were told that the girl, Emily, died from a gun wound and her boyfriend, Chris, had several stiches. It was a botched suicide pact. The book goes back and forth between past and present and does a great job of capuring the grieving process along with Chris struggles because he is being tried for murder. When they are flipping back and forth between the different time periods it flows really nicely and fits in with the story line.I recommend it.

That evening we went out with D-Lo and Chris and James and Annel for some couples fun time. We went bowling where I was a little bit crazy and pissed off because I wasn't bowling well competitive and bummed super angry that I got the lowest score because  I am a sore sport not use to losing at bowling. All in all it was fun. We then went out to Mimi's after and had a good and healthy dinner. I had French Onion Soup and Salmon with spinach, asparagus, and fruit. Finally Kev and I went over to chris and d-lo's to watch The Goods  which ended up being a stupidly good movies. You know those movies that you feel bad for liking? But come on its Ari Gold!!

So we have no pictures whatsoever with D-lo and Chris so maybe it might have been a great idea to actually take some this evening. ESPECIALLY since I had the camera on me the whole time. Seriously...what is the point of the flipping thing if I am not going to use it?

Sunday: Duh Football!!

All day Sunday I watched Football and read and ate. No joke. That is what I was doing from 10 am- 9 pm. We had some yummy, healthy football treats too. Fruit & veggie platters, pita chips and hummus, triscuts and low fat dip... Yummyness!!

So I am getting my butt kicked in all of my fantasy football leagues. Like I am for serious!! It really does suck but my teams are just mediocre. Gosh darn it! I don't have beginners luck and I haven't been playing fantasy football long enough to be good at it. I guess I at least have good excuses but it doesn't make me feel any better. I was very happy with the results of most of the games yesterday. There were some good ones. I will wrap all my thoughts up in my sports thursday posts which are going to turn into 100% football recaps and predictions. I know you are all excited!!

I had a fun and relaxing weekend and I hope you all did too
