Ways in which I injured myself this weekend?  Three.  After suspecting all last week that my quad may be slightly injured, I got confirmation of that when I was up to bat at kickball on Saturday and the minute I kicked/tried to run down the baseline it felt like someone stabbed me in the thigh.  I limped off the field and spent the rest of the game laying on the sidelines.  At least the roommates were nice enough to walk slowly with me to the bar after.  Oh wait, they weren’t, the abandoned me on the streets of DC to walk alone. 😉

After numbing the pain in my leg with Miller Light all afternoon, I tried to come home and get myself cleaned up for the kickball mid season party Saturday night.  PSA: chugging Red Bull, while already slightly drunk, and operating a curling iron will result in this.

I don’t even know, one minute it was twirled up in my hair, and the next it was burning me on the chest.  It hurt.  Especially now when my bra strap rubs against it.  Sigh, at least it’s not on my neck?  Then yesterday while attempting to carry in three bags of groceries, a bag of cat food, and a box of cat litter, I managed to catch my left foot in the screen door as it slammed closed.  My shoe fell off, as did some skin on my foot.  Maybe Friday the 13th attacked me early this year?

Despite those three events, the weekend was fantastically fun.  Friday night was really low key, I spent it curled up in the chair reading a trashy James Patterson book and drinking some vodka.  Saturday was spent with my amazingly fun kickball team.

and night

dance off

I spent most of my time on that chair in the corner resting my injured leg, although I’m thinking observing the dance party from the outskirts may have been just as enjoyable.  Yesterday Adrienne and I enjoyed a nice lunch outside at Front Page in Ballston surrounded by families enjoying Mother’s Day brunch.  I also managed to find Kacy’s future place of residence and send some pictures to her, yes I am a creep.

I also finally made it to the grocery store for the first time since, oh before Easter, which means I also finally had a home cooked meal.  Andrea’s  Gooey Three Cheese Lasagna.

I messed up the sauce and added way too much Oregano, but it is still delicious, and since I made a giant casserole of  it, I’ll be eating it all week.  Unless someone wants to come over for dinner?  Oh I also added ground Turkey to mine, because that’s how I roll.

It’s Monday again, and that’s really all I have to say about that.  Try to get through it.

  1. I’m the queen of burning myself with my straightener. I think I don’t have fingerprints on two fingers anymore after using it to curl my hair. I also remember in college when I burned my forehead really bad. I couldn’t raise my eyebrow for almost a month.

  2. ouch! That’s one hell of a burn.

    Love your hair in those last pictures! So cute.

  3. 1. I’ve burned myself too many times and that one you got looks like a bad one 😦
    2. You look beautiful (BEAUTIFUL) in the photos of you when you went out.
    3. Lasagnaaaa!!

  4. Yikes! That’s a bad burn 😦 My suggestion for alleviating some of the bra strap issue is vaseline…it cures everything! (Along with having some other valuable uses 😉

  5. I have a scar on my forehead from a curling iron. Oh, and a flat iron. I got myself in the same spot like a week after it healed. This is why I refuse to style my hair ever again. 🙂

  6. I say we wrap you in bubble wrap and let you roam the town. 🙂

  7. oh dang! I hate when I operate hot tools whilst or after drinking – danger. I usually burn my arms though – like outer/tricep area. LOL

    That lasanga looks awesome – going to check out the recipe!

  8. That is a large part of the reason why I never curl my hair anymore. I’m a burner.
    Sorry about your leg! Hope it feels better.
    That pics made my day yesterday. I can’t wait to move it!
    I wish I was there – I love lasagna. I would be all about that.

  9. You weren’t kidding about that burn! Wow.

    Lasagna… oh man. I’ve never worked up the energy to make it on my own, but mostly because my mom sends up frozen ones she makes for me when I go home to visit… another reason she’s awesome. 🙂

  10. You look so pretty! Sorry about the burn 😦

  11. Sorry to hear about your mishaps over the weekend! If it makes you feel better, I routinely smash my toes into things and fall up the stairs. 🙂 Hope the quad heals fast! Again, your hair looks fantastic!

  12. WOW!!! That is a hell of a burn!!! OUCH!
