Happy Monday, Internet!
I know you are anxiously awaiting (HA) my Super-de-Duper Vacation Post all about Asheville. But it is LONG. With many many photos. So it is taking me ten years to write.
Also, I have work to do.
Plus, this weekend was my husband’s Great Big 30th Birthday Celebration: Part Two. We spent Friday partying with about 20 medical residents. (Who was at the hospital, is my question?)
Then on Saturday, we went to Ikea (prounounced “eye-key” by our navigator) and spent hours wandering through neatly arranged rooms full of furniture we don’t need… searching for the perfect BILLY bookcase with the matching OLSBO door… sitting in fifty different desk chairs until we picked the VERNER option… deciding for, then against, the FIGGJO, DROMMAR, KONCIS, and more… realizing that it was suddenly an hour later than we thought it was and we were about to be late for dinner… getting right to the warehouse portion of the store and discovering that the BILLY bookcase in white was not in stock… and leaving with thirty assorted odds and ends that we didn’t need in the first place.
But then… Sunday…
Sunday, we went here:
With these (please excuse the hang-nailed thumb):
We wore our team colors. Only a few people booed at us (and no one spit on us!).
We sat in great seats with this fabulous view:
And watched some of this:
We were shocked and delighted when we were ahead (it was short-lived):
We ate stadium food and sunburned only the left sides of our faces.
After we left, we ate one of these (okay, only my husband ate one of those – I had a much healthier meals of chicken wings and curly fries):
Yes, there are fries IN the sandwich.
It was a great time.
But now we are home for longer than three days, and I am Getting Serious about not only eating better (see: no more sandwiches with fries in them) but about exercising as well. (I think I may rescue my old nemesis Jillian Michaels from her dusty shelf.)
Because after Asheville and this little football weekend? My scale HATES me.
By the way? We went back to “Eye-Key” after the game to pick up our BILLY bookcase. My husband will put it together today. (I know you were super worried.) We also managed to pick up some of these:
And some of these:
And some of these:
I promise that a really long, possibly horrifically boring Asheville Recap with lots of pretty pictures is coming soon.
How was your weekend?
