listening to: Erasure - Take Me Back
(please forgive the poor writing in this entry as I am not yet awake. last nite was the second nite in a row that i did not sleep well).
Friday night we went to dinner with Ari and Jeff at one of the Mexican food places in Leander. It was the yum. We all had quite a bit of margarita, but Saffi didn't feel it the next day like the rest of them did. ;)
Saturday I went shopping with Mom. I have been needing new clothes for a while...most of mine are too big now. We hit the Foley's Red Apple sale (where I got several tops and some cute Dockers capris...all on sale). Then it was off to JC Penney where I found this. The last stop was Dillards to pick up the Clarks sandals I have been wanting. That was the only thing I paid full price for. :) I was quite proud of myself. I got a LOT of clothes for very little money. I then came home and finally got to sit down and watch a Ewan performance I hadn't seen. He was in the first episode of a British TV series called "Kavanagh QC" about a British public defender. Ewan was great of course, but I really liked the show as well. I will probably end up adding that to my collection. :)
Sunday morning D and I ended up sleeping in til 9:30. I haven't been able to sleep that late in months. We got up and went to church, then came home. He did some yard work while I bummed in the house. We watched "Ray" together. About 5:00 I finally got up the energy to vacuum and clean the floors. We then watched "Friday Night Lights". I recommend both movies.
Oooo...last night I made Dustin and I some homemade alfredo with angel hair pasta. I took a recipe I got from Rachel Ray on 30 Minute Meals and tweaked it. Her's calls for half and half, butter, nutmeg, and parmesan, and I added a little sour cream and cremini mushrooms that I had sauteéd with garlic and cooking sherry. I rarely like my own cooking very much, but this was so good.
BTW, if you love to cook, check out Rachel's shows on Food TV. 30 Minute Meals, $40 A Day, and Inside Dish. I have seen at least one episode of all 3 and love them. She is too adorable and an excellent chef. :)
