On Friday, L and I went to a movie: Australia. GO SEE IT. We loved it. We also (while waiting for the movie to start) whizzed through a Target (Black Friday crowds and all!) and took a short trip through Pier One. Bought a DVD player for the TV downstairs at $10 off. Pier One was disappointing this time around.
Saturday we actually did go shopping (after L hung the Christmas lights up on the house), and I actually finished my shopping for LaMar - I'm so excited about his gift! He knows one part of it, (I mean, I needed him to try it on) but part of it will be a complete surprise. I love surprising him... Mostly, though, I'm just stoked to cross one person off my list as *Done*. So much still to do... That evening, L's parents took us out to dinner at Maggiano's for his birthday. Yum, yum, yum!
And finally Sunday. Sat through the 1st hour of church. Realized it was the fifth Sunday, which means combined RS/Priesthood meetings. Those are always a bit funky in my book. We looked at each other and booked out of there to the doughnut shop. Sat under the trees at a little park eating a doughnut and me drinking chocolate milk, L drinking (what else?) a Diet Coke. Sat there for 2 hours, just talking and solving everyone's problems - we are geniuses. It was quiet and heavenly. Headed home, cleaned the house, did the wash, grabbed Scott and went out for pizza (seeing as how we'd already done wrong by buying doughnuts and drinks). No one really felt like cooking anyway, and so we kept up the weekend food fest tradition.
To atone, l and I took ourselves over to East Lake, and hiked around the lake homes to burn some calories. There were lots of Christmas lights up, and we got some good ideas for our own house. Maybe we'll implement them next weekend. The lights were beautiful, and reflected off the water. So peaceful.
Tomorrow starts the diet. Again.
