Friday night, my sister and mom spontaneously asked me to go and see The Wizard of Oz in IMAX. We even had 3-D glasses. I'm not sure if I would recommend the IMAX experience on this particular film, but I enjoyed myself. I like this classic film and had forgotten all the details of the story. It was fun to do something different. I think the rest of the audience liked it too as they exploded in applause at the end. The theater was in a very charming outdoor mall that I simply haven't visited in a while as it a bit farther afield.
I took a picture of the poster they gave away with my phone.
After work Saturday, I made spaghetti and homemade meatballs for dinner. Even though I do not make them often, the meatballs turned out pretty well. They were delicious. This combination is Italian-American. Pasta would be a first course and meatballs would be part of the second in Italy. Spicy meatballs, in fact, were a specialty of the region I studied abroad in, Abruzzo.
Sunday and Monday make up my weekend. On Sunday, I had a cappuccino and chocolate croissant at my favorite coffee shop a couple towns over. They are slammed busy on Sunday mornings and so I prefer to patronize them on a more quiet Monday morning, but alas, I still haven't taken my car in anywhere and I only had my dad's vehicle late Friday night through Sunday evening. I purchased spray paint for my balcony chairs that morning as well. My neighbor S gave me a thank you gift for watering her plants while she was away. The paperweight is beautiful and I am touched.
I had my friend J over for three hours Sunday afternoon. I told her about all my research for her 30th birthday trip to New York. She is so excited. My two travel companions are not travelers (yet) so I am planning so our fun that day seems effortless. We also talked shop since we're both in property management and our lives. I learned my godson (and her oldest son) finally cut his long hair. We gabbed over a late lunch on my balcony, in beautiful fall weather. Last night, I blogged about style, a bigger post on this season's capsule wardrobe.
I want to say that I will be finishing up my weekend watching How I Met Your Mother tonight at 8, but I think I'll have to catch it on my computer tomorrow. Perhaps over breakfast before my shift starts?
This was a pretty good low-key weekend. I did much more than the highlights I mentioned, but I'd prefer not to bore you with a play-by-play. I'm sure you guys don't wanna read about the details of my dental appointment. Even though it's been over a month, I'm still not used to having all the free time now that I'm only working one job! I am figuring it out though. I love to read and travel, so I am planning multiple books and daytrips over the next four weeks! I am also pushing myself to publish here more often. I even started this post unsure of how much I could say about my weekend highlights ...and just look at it now!
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend as well!
