Don’t you hate when you write out a word and it looks TOTALLY wrong, like reenactment in the title, looks like a hot mess of a word but according to the red squiggly master that resides over all of the spelling land i typed it correctly!
Sydney would like it to be known she is against the whole using "gnomes" as stand ins but did allow this one photo to be taken to appease me, treats might also have come into play
Okay so lets get to the meaning behind the title, i was still sick this weekend – oh so sick, hacking my lungs up and there is a possibility i might need CPR sick so not a lot happened , luon was definitely worn and me and the blow dryer were no longer besties – and i have to say what did go down was not photographed (the horror!)
So what does a blogger do when she has no photo evidence of the weekend?
Why reenact it with Gnomes! (still looks wrong)
I know, i know, i’m weird and quirky but i swear to the iPhone gods, i didn’t take a single photo this weekend, not even of the dirty popsicle eating variety
Before we begin, no i didn’t clone Rome the Gnome, Rome was actually our second gnome, our first one turned out to be a little vertically challenged so we are always looking for, erm, taller gnomes to answer our dream of running around with a full sized gnome like they do on The Amazing Race, Rome won’t be our last, much to Sydneys disapointment
Okay lets get down to it shall we?
See the gnome on the right, she is UBER ticked her hubby gnome is fast asleep 5 minutes into the movie and date night at home is RUINED, ruined i tell you (she was a little dramatic as sick people gnomes tend to be)
The movie we were watching? Contagion, just an FYI to all currently sick hypochondriacs out there – DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE! Lol, lots of stars, interesting subject matter, but i had more questions then answers at the end and i really convinced myself i had a much worse disease then a head cold!
Saturday pretty much consisted of grocery store shopping and then forcing my parents to start watching Game of Thrones and obnoxiously interupting every 5 minutes to point out who we felt were important characters and whispering to each other loudly annoying things like “hahaaa famous last words”, and “ohhhh talk about foreshadowing!” then i developed a little quirky issue come bed time
This is a shot of when i, the silent sleeper, developed a grunt in my sleep! After my 12th grunt Dave woke me up to ask if i was okay - it took 10 minutes and doing it again to realize i was indeed grunting when i relaxed to enter sleep and then it just became funny, dave however didn't think it was so cute after the 30th grunt and this photo is of him contemplating jumping out of bed head first (i'm quite sure his first idea was too push me out!)
Sunday was an epic verbal match over who would walk Sydney in the -16 weather and in the end we both went and she was a happy fluffy doodle rolling in the snow and then pathetically putting up her paws for us to clean the snow out then acting spastic in the snow again thus restarting the cycle :) Then i found a visitor….
Sunday Afternoon: Dave trying to kill our first spider with a paper towel (stupidest idea ever, everyone knows you use multiple tissues as there are less gaps for the spider to escape (which happened... 3 times), i am the gnome hiding in the laundry
Friends came for dinner and for the first time i did make your own gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, soooo much fun! and i even made Tomato soup from scratch, shockingly tasty!!!
Then Dave and i curled up in front of the fire watching the Golden Globes, anyone watch? I”m hoping to do a fashion recap tomorrow!
Before i go i HAVE to share this photo of our breakfast on Saturday – super simple and tasted “JUST LIKE APPLE PIE” according to Dave – sorry the recipe is vague buts its kind of a bit of this, bit of that recipe
APPLE NAAN PIE
I lied, i did take one photo
1. chop an apple or two and throw it in a pot
2. cook it on medium with a little vegan margarine or butter
3. sprinkle it with cinnamon and add in some raisins
4. towards the end throw in a dollop of apple butter and cook till warm and apples are soft
5. while the apples are cooking, spread some vegan marg or butter on one side of a piece of whole wheat naan bread and broil it until the butter has dried up
6. spread the apple mixture onto the naan
7. die from the deliciousness that is apple naan pie
Well thats all for me, i think i’m finally coming out of the worst of this cold, either that or experiencing an incubation period before the onslaught of worse symptoms that originated with a bat and pig…. oh wait… that was the movie!
What did yo get up to this weekend? I hope you left the house more times then i did! LOL
