My Friday night was spent alone. But only in the physical human-being context since Tony was out of town for work. Not only was I accompanied by great wine and the Olympics...
Then, I received this picture from her:
And immediately followed was this conversation:
(There was a lot more "bubby" madness that I couldn't include in the screen shot)
But to say we are obsessed with our dogs is an understatement...
...or maybe we just really are that lame. Meh. No outside opinions are needed.
But needless to say, my Friday night wasn't a complete bust. Sometimes a relaxing night, with a glass of wine, catching up on your cell phone games and admitting to yourself that the only reason you stayed in wasn't by choice is exactly what you need. ...Right?
Anyways. Saturday was a bit more social for me. My friend Ashley graduated from her nursing program and finally put her big girl pants on a got a full-time job! I'd say that calls for a celebration. (Hooray for human interaction!!)
Kiley, Ashley and Me having some friend time! :o)
Congrats Nurse Ashley!
Sunday was a much needed lazy day. Although Tony and I had a lot on our "to do" list for Sunday, laying on the couch, working out and eating good food sounded a lot better. When does it not?
One may say that a good meal is made from love, but if you ask me, a good meal is made by a man! Tony is quite the chef and as for me, well, I am quite talented when it comes to doing dishes and setting the table.

(Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana)
What a handsome chef :o)
The finished product!
What a delicious, healthy, AND Weight Watcher friendly meal. Chicken Rollatini = 5pts, 1 cup of cooked white rice = 5pts and cooked broccoli = 0pts. Total points = 10!

But Jo(W)anna know what? To end a relaxing and enjoyable weekend, Tony and I, again, found ourselves glued to the couches watching the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics. I have found these summer Olympics to be addicting to watch and now I am just lost as to what to watch when I turn on the TV this evening. Maybe this calls for a good new book. I'm not sure if my interest in the Olympics increased with age, or if it was due to all the hype via social media. Either way, my eyes were glued to the tube and USA dominated. I couldn't be more proud of the athletes and their great representation of our country.
The entertainment for the closing ceremonies was, well, entertaining. Every thing from honoring John Lennon to hearing the overplayed, yet catchy song, "Wonderwall" by Oasis had me tappin my foot and singin along. However, being a Monty Python fan, I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated Eric Idles rendition of Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. And also, being a teeny bop who grew up in the 80's and 90's, I truly rocked out to the reunion of the Spice Girls. Honestly, who didn't love this group of fashionista's? But seriously... is it just me or did the Spice Girls get more attractive with age?
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend full of fun, food, drinks, relaxation and a lot more human interaction! Happy Monday and hurry up Friday!
