Weekend Recap

This weekend has been pretty chill and plan free as far as weekends go. Usually my weekends are jam-packed with plans and I never get anything done around the house, which makes my work week more relaxing than the weekend.

Well, this weekend I feel like I got a lot of stuff done around the house including making my flower bed go from this:

To this:

I think those new plants get fairly big, so I didn’t want to crowd it with more plants until I know for sure. It’s not done, but it’s much better.

This weekend, I also finished the book I started on the flight out to California last weekend, Unwind by Neal Shusterman. Michelle recommended this one to me a long time ago.

Unwind was awesome. I loved it! It’s a young adult book along the lines of The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner and it’s a super fast read. There was one scene in the book that I thought was seriously disturbing, and I don’t often think that with books. I think it’s because I don’t really have that great of an imagination and a lot of times books are what your mind makes of them.

Next up on my read list:

Master your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels. I’ve been wanting to read this one forever.

Book 10 of the Sookie Stackhouse Series. I bought this one awhile ago and it’s been waiting patiently on my Nook.

Bossypants by Tina Fey

That cover seriously creeps me out. Am I the only one? I’m not much of a reader so it usually takes long plane rides or chemical peels, that make me stay in all weekend because I look like Goldmember, to actually pick up a book.

Speaking of books, Michelle started a virtual book club. If you’re interested in joining, head on over to her blog. She just picked the first book for June.

Lastly, I just got back from seeing Bridesmaids.

EVERYONE is saying this movie is crazy hilarious. While I thought it was very funny and cute, I didn’t think it was hilarious. (Although, there was one scene that I laughed so hard I cried.) Honestly, I was tearing up most of the movie because I felt so bad for Kristin Wiig’s character. So, I thought the movie had more heart than being drop-dead funny.

Also, it was awesome to see Kristen Wiig play normal instead of one of her whacky SNL characters. She’s a really great actress in this movie, which I didn’t expect. So, go see it. You’ll love it if you’re a man or a woman.  Or a man-woman. They’ll love it too.

  1. Um, yeah. Totally teared up during Bridesmaids because I could identify so much with Kristin Wiig’s character. Loser.com over here!

  2. i got to do some reading-for-fun books this weekend and it was gloooooooooooorious.

  3. Which scene was it?

    Maybe it’s because I haven’t laughed at a move like that in a looooong time, but I definitely thought it was hilarious! And man — who HASN’T felt like her in the bridal shower scene — just didn’t have the balls to say it.

    On of my favorite lines? “I can’t believe I just took a shit in the street.” Maya Rudolph KILLED that scene.

  4. I read Unwind… within 1 second of reading the first few pages, I was hooked. Crazy disturbing book!

  5. Your post reminded me to finally order that Jillian Michael kindle book for my trip this weekend. I’ll be reading that as I pound drinks on the plan to Vegas. ;-)

  6. The Tina Fey cover always messes with me. I always have to take a double take when I see it. Might have to get the wifey to download it to her Kindle.

    “Sshmoke and a Pancack?”

  7. I LOVED Unwind. It was disturbing, but in a brilliant way. I also love what I’ve heard of Bossypants (we got the audio book) and I love Sookie Stackhouse. I would invite you to my book club if you lived near me, I think you’d love it!

    • Yes! Hard to believe it was a young adult book. I never know what to read so I usually just read what Michelle tells me to and I end up liking it. :-)
