Lazy Sunday Random Bits

May 27th, 2007

It's been a busy, but nice weekend with the fiansor. Friday night we were out for dinner and a movie (Pirates of the Carribean - it was fun, much better than the 2nd movie, not as good as the 1st) and yesterday we walked around a bit and later drove to Rhode Island to see a childhood friend of the fiansor's new house. The friend and his wife are both cooks and she was baking dozens and dozens of cookies for a party the next day, so we got to sample and take home some delicious cookies. The gingersnap chocolate ones were SO good! Today was a trip into town to get lunch and some errands and then driving around historic Concord. We've been visiting various towns to get a feel for where we'd like to live. Concord is beautiful, but not quite right. We walked around town a bit, peering into little shops and walked around in an old, old graveyard. I love the artwork on old gravestones from the 1700's. And now, I'm feeling totally wiped. I think a nap is in my future. I've been meaning to do this meme that I was tagged for at YogaGlamGirl's blog, so here we go:

I always enjoy getting a glimpse into favorite bloggers thru a good meme. I hope the rest of your long weekend is good!

Joshua Tree! You weren’t that far away from me then – about an hour or so away.

Sounds like you’re having a great weekend – enjoy!

Ohhhh… your mention of sushi makes me want some! It has been so long since I’ve had any. Sounds like you had a really good weekend. That is great! Hope your holiday is fun too! :)

Husband and I saw Pirates 3 too! You’re right, much better than 2 (not hard) but not as good as one which was witty and twisty and all good things.

Wow, what varied jobs you’ve held! And I am right with you on Project Runway and ANTM! Did you know that Tim Gunn has a book out?

An exchange student at 15!? How cool! I hope my boys will want to do that when they are older. Was it a good experience? How cool.

i love goonies too :) must be the adventurer in me!
