Here We Are Now, Entertain Us

It's time for the mostly photo Sunday post. This weekend, was all about home and getting sick (again) and hanging with my girls.

On Friday night, Stinky had some friends come over and watch movies, and also take bizarre photos in our front yard. Now, that's something I could totally support. Coadster and I watched In Bruges. We both loved it. It was a little on the violent side, but what movie isn't these days? Thank god, I'm desensitized to it. Everyone on Facebook got me all excited about the coke sniffing dwarf, and he so didn't disappoint.

This was also a weekend of me missing out of town guests. My girlcrush came to town with her hubby, but it was Friday when I had the girls. Plus, I developed yet another nasty cold and had to stay home and blow my nose about 5,142 times instead. Pretty.

Saturday night, I got texts from several different friends about going out opportunities. Although I had slept most of the day and felt a lot better, I didn't want to tempt the fates by going out, so I missed a friend of mine in town from Ames, and the guy I dated this time last year. The guy hasn't really been much of a friend to me since we split-up, so I wouldn't have made an effort there, but if I hadn't been sick, I probably would have tried to show up down at the Dublin Underground for some other friends.

I stayed home and watched the movie Australia. I was in the mood for a sweeping epic adventure, and I thought Australia delivered.

The good thing about staying home on Saturday night, was feeling well enough on Sunday very late morning to make brunch. We had hash browns, eggs, toast, tea and fruit. This first fruit plate photo was done in color.

And this second one was done in mostly black and white with just a splash of color. I love it when the food I eat is really pretty.

Sunday afternoon was spent at Coadster's last show choir event - the Spring show. Here is Coadster singing in jazz choir. It's mostly bee-boppy kind of music, but she loves it and it is a lot of fun to listen to.

Here she is in some dramatic pose at the end of one of their inspirational show choir numbers.

And finally, here's another one of my most favoritest "frustrated, mom will you please stop taking photos of me, I'm done humoring you" poses, while her friend laugh in the background. God, I love being a parent of teenage girls. I am never, ever bored.

Your daughter is a beauty! What a nice weekend. Except for the sick part... ick. Feel better.

Who is that bending backwards like that?

I will be renting "Australia" and I'm looking forward to checking out "Rachel Getting Married". This weekend I saw "Burn After Reading". It kept my attention, but it was a weird movie.

You also have pictures of her hunching so you could blow them up to poster size, and then give a seminar on how not to sit. I'm sure she'd love that.

In spite of not feeling well, you managed a very nice weekend!
I love your pretty food and pretty daughter photos.

I have that weird cold thing twice in a damn row. It just went away about a week ago and now I am cold and sick feeling and blowing my nose. I hate it!

Thanks. I did have a nice weekend. Hopefully, next weekend will be even better, because I won't be sick.


That's Stinky.

I've heard that about Burn After Reading. I want to see Rachel Getting married too.


That whole slouching/hunching is a family disease. I have no room to talk. She could do the same thing to me. And as we all know, it's only funny when I do it to her.


Thank you. I definitely love my weekends...I just wish I had more of them.


Doesn't it suck? I just got some Zicam and you should get some too. It worked for me last year, I just forgot to get more this year until Pamela reminded me.
