What the [BLANK] happened this weekend?

Does this blog post title look familiar? I’m trying to build or create a posting routine. Since I’m generally not in the writing mood on the weekends, I decide that this title would be my weekend update. I might change it later on but for now, it’s staying. Haha.

On Saturday I spent the morning at Maker’s Mercantile, I seriously love this place. I enjoyed their Saturday morning breakfast, a cup of coffee and knitted for a while. After that I finally gave the dog a bath. She hides from me after every bath, I just don’t get it. She needed it pretty bad though and as much as she hates it, she stunk!

Saturday was also the Sounders game against the Whitecaps. I was looking forward to the game. We COULD have taken home the Cascadia cup. The majority of our starters were back, things were looking up. Apparently the team did not get that memo. We have been on a losing streak, I think in the last 8 games we have won 1. The games we do lose, we lose it in the last 5+ mins of the game. It’s tough to watch your team lose but even worse when you know they are great players that are playing like shit. I’d like to pick on our midfield, because they really are playing the worst but it’s a team effort and they need to get back into fighting form. To make things worse, every time the Whitecaps scored, they would run over to their sideline and take a quick water break. How rude is that??? I get celebrating and encourage it, but what they did was a time waster and uncalled for. If I was a sounder player I would be fired up for the Concacaf game we have against them on Wednesday. Okay now I’m riled up again, MOVING ON!

Sunday was a slow day. I played some DragonAge and The Sims 4. I received an email about 7 free days for my World of Warcraft account. Contemplating doing that just to play my beloved character again for 7 days. I raided M-Th for about 4 years and the end of Wrath and beginning of Cata killed my love of the game. I would play that game casually if there was no sub but I just don’t have the same time or money like I used to.

After breaking from computer games, I did some spot cleaning in the dining room. It’s looking nice and clear. I did a Harry Potter marathon on Sunday as I played games and cleaned. I really need to read those books. My book club has told me in the past  they are thinking of giving me the boot because I have NOT read them yet. They are on my list…..so let me stayyyy. Plus who would lead if I was gone!

Sunday night I went over my planning. I was getting stuff together for my book club meeting on Friday and realized that this Friday is the last meeting one our members will be going to. She has this fabulous opportunity and will be moving away and I really want to do something nice for her. Turns out she’s going to miss the meetup but I think my idea is easier if she is not there anyways. I’m planning on getting a farewell card for the group to sign and then taking a group picture. Just something for her to remember us by. I also wanted to do a farewell package from us. I sent an email to my book club members asking for their help in filling out and coming up with Open When letter ideas. I have a few ideas but I’m excited to see if anyone else came up with something.

TBD

You read that right and no it’s not a typo. I almost failed my journalism class in college because of my lack of attention grabbing headlines! I have a hard time coming up with appropriate titles and headlines but that’s not the main reason I almost failed that class, but I digress. This weekend turned out to be very productive and awesome, for a lot of different reasons but mostly because this is how I kicked it off!

I spent most of the weekend getting ready for a party, cooking rice, taco meat, mexican brownies and cutting up all the veggies. My plan this weekend was to get out of the house at least once a day. If I don’t, I’ll just lay on the couch watching Netflix all weekend and that will make me feel horrible come Monday. Saturday was a no-brainer since I had to go to my friend’s house but Sunday, well I planned on sleeping in. I had some items to return from the party so that gave me a great reason to get dressed and head out into the world!

Have you ever returned groceries? It’s a pretty weird feeling walking back into the store with shopping bags. People look at you funny and you know they are silently judging you. After making all my returns I headed home for some relaxation and chilling with the dog. Got bored so I started reading Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. This is book two, and I’ll do a book review soon but I’m excited to see what problems they cause in the past! To finish off the weekend I played a few hours of DragonAge Inquisition, LOVE this game.

SEA-HAWKS! 

Oh yeah, the Seahawks kicked the Panthers asses this last Saturday and at the end of the week, the Packers are coming to town. It was a great game and pretty sure Bam Bam Kam showed up to a track meet instead of a football game (hurdles and long distance running). Just as an FYI, I’m not a huge football fan and you can call me a bandwagon fan all you want, I just like supporting my hometown teams (except the Huskies). Who the F cares how long you have been a fan as long as you are one. Anyways my friend is a huge fan and I was worried the party I was throwing for her would be ruined if the Seahawks lost, good thing they didn’t.

A’s 30th Party

My friend takes her age pretty seriously and was feeling the grumps from turning 30 in December. I know woman think turning 30 is bad, I don’t get it but someone like my friend doesn’t feel that great about it. To help cheer her up I planned a Fiesta Bday party for her and friends. Hence the fiesta in a cart picture above. My idea was to let the emotional burn of turning 30 cool down a little before we celebrated her big day. It’s really hard to have a birthday party at the end of December so, January works just fine. I’d started planning this at the end on November and the day I picked just happened to be set as the first playoff game for the Seahawks. Not as many people showed up as we had hoped due to football parties and the game but we still had a blast. I do have leftover taco meat that will last me a month, the bright side, I know!

That’s a wrap for my TBD weekend report and this week promises to be even more exciting! No, I’m kidding I live a relatively boring life but we will see what I can squeeze out of this week.
