It finally snowed here in NC! I was so excited. I did have to chuckle a little when on friday as the forecasters were predicting snow everyone was sent into a frenzy. Even though it was 46 degrees Friday afternoon, they let the schools release the kids 2 hours early, and told everyone to stock up on water and milk. I guess Walmart ran out of bread, water and milk early friday afternoon. This Wisconsite had to leave. 46 degrees in WI is a heat wave but since snow isn't exactly common around here I understood and I was looking forward to a snow day off!
By Friday night, I was convinced it wasn't going to snow. At midnight the hubs and I took the dogs out and it was still 40 some degrees, no sign of flurries or anything. Waking up Saturday morning I was surprised to open my windows and see snow on the ground. Normally I work on Saturday's but I was not going to risk driving in this weather. Even though I am used to driving in the snow, most people around here are not and since I totaled my car in September and had to get a new one, I couldn't afford for that to happen again. So I gladly canceled my kiddo's and crawled back under the covers to get some sleep
This weekend has been probably one of the best weekends I had in a long time. Usually we have something planned on Saturday nights. The past few weekends we've had people over, birthday parties to attend and so forth. Friday's I work until 7 and since I have to work at 8am Saturday morning we don't really do much. Quality time spent with the hubby and I have been lacking lately. Our busy schedule's don't allow us much time together and when we are off, we are usually catching up on cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping or even just sleeping.
This weekend we had the luxury of doing nothing. I had rented a ton of movies on Thursday night and we spent the majority of our day laying around and watching movies. Today we got up, I had class and then we headed to the mall and did a little bit of shopping. Now we are back at home and are about to pop in another movie before watching the Grammy's.
I also used the weekend to catch up on some of my tv shows. Here are my thoughts on some of my favorite shows..
The Real Housewives of OC-I couldn't help but laugh as Lynn started crying about her daughter. Not because of the situation but because of watching her plastic face move as she cried. It really didn't move! I personally think plastic surgery makes people look worse than they did or did not before and this just confirmed my beliefs. I couldn't stand watching her fake face as she cried. But I do feel for her in her situation. I remember giving my mom such problems as a teenager but I do believe that Lynn needs to toughen up and be a stricter parent
Teen Mom-I feel so bad for Maci. Her boyfriend is such a jerk. I did tear up a little when Catelynn and her bf went out to dinner and he proposed. I hope they make it. Farrah is growing on me. I feel like she is really trying to be a good mom and did y'all hear that her mom choked her out during an argument. There has always been something off about her mom. I am looking forward to the show this week
Giuiliana and Bill-My heart goes out to them as they are trying to conceive. I truly love them as a couple and their show is my guilty pleasure on sunday nights!
The Bachelor-I am getting sick of this show. There is something a little odd about Jake. At first he seemed like such a great guy, but now I can't put my finger on it but he is weird. And so are most of the girls this season. And what are with the previews showing some big dramatic event which never airs on the episode. I think this will be my last season of watching the Bachelor, though I will tune in for Molly and Jason's wedding
What else..I can't believe Heidi and all her plastic surgery. That poor girl now looks like a fake barbie. She to me is not even pretty any more.
The hubby and I went to Barnes and Nobles this weekend and I picked up two new books. The Help which everyone says is amazing and Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert who wrote Eat Pray Love. I have never read that, it is currently on my reading list but Committed is pretty good so far. It's a very interesting book about marriage in today's society as compared to marriage in other places around the world. I'm not done with it yet but will give a book review when finished
And finally, the movies the hubs and I watched this week are as follows
The Hurt Locker-An amazing movie. Not recommended for people who don't like war movies though
Gamer-Sooo stupid. Interesting concept but that was about it
Whiteout-It was pretty good I thought. A mindless suspense set in the North Pole
Halloween 2-I love Rob Zombie movies. I am a horror movie junkie and love his remake on the Halloween series
Stop Loss-I rented it only because Channing Tatum is in it. Another good war movie. It helps that Channing is shown in a scene in only his boxer briefs. Yummy! The hubby wasn't as excited as I was about it. In fact he acted a little jealous
So that about sums it up. I hope you all had a great weekend!!
