A New Obsession

So for various reasons, I ended up making a last minute decision and not trekking up to NYC this weekend with the roommates, which left me with an empty house and no plans.  At least that meant I didn’t have to miss kickball now!

Unfortunately, the weekend got off to a rough start because as I was heading home from Maryland and into Virginia, the traffic reports told me this: “If you’re going into Virginia, you’re basically screwed.”  Wonderful, fantastic, just what I like to hear on a Friday afternoon.  So I did what any normal 25 year-old girl would do, and pulled out my GPS to locate the nearest mall.

Lucky for me, it was only 2 miles away, even if going that two miles did take almost a half an hour.  Even luckier for me was that it was a nice mall, with some of my favorite stores, like Apple, and JCrew.  Which is how I ended up with this little baby.

What can I say, I’m an emotional and impulsive shopper.  I’m also now obsessed with my pretty, new, iPhone.  So what apps do I need?  I’ve already got Words With Friends, Angry Birds, Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Four Square, Wikipedia, Hipstamatic.  Come on people, gimme some good ones!

Saturday’s kickball double header ended up being rained out, but that doesn’t mean our flip cup matches couldn’t be played.  So I pulled out my rain boots, and hiked on into DC to meet up with the rest of my team around 1.  My team pretty much kicks ass and went 10-0 in flip cup matches, which is pretty damn impressive.  Apparently while we were crammed into a basement bar all day there were some pretty nasty storms going on outside.  I was completely oblivious, and almost surprised it was still daylight out when I made the walk back to the metro to go home.

Unfortunately I left my camera at work, so I have no pictures to share, and I wish I could direct you to the leagues Flikr stream, but it is password protected for a reason :).  I spent the rest of my Saturday with a pizza, and watching Country Strong for the 3rd time.  Yes, 3rd.  I liked it that much, although it was NOT what I was expecting at all.

Sunday was pretty much spent on the couch, until I finally managed to drag myself to the grocery store around 7 pm.  I’m hoping I stocked up on just enough to get me through the week, since I’m heading home to PA on Friday after work.  I played a lot of Angry Birds on Sunday kids, it’s as addicting as Darren said it was.  I also watched the latest Harry Potter movie, it was interesting.

The Boston Marathon is about to kick off, and you bet your ass I paid the $4.99 to get the live stream from Universal Sports.  Good luck to everyone running!

It’s a Holiday Party!

So, four days until Christmas Eve!  Who’s ready?!  Surprisingly I pretty much am.  I only have one more present to wrap, and I am good to go!  I am very much looking forward to the short work week, rumor has it that we’ll be let out early on Thursday and then I am off to PA until the 27th.

This past weekend was a blast, my sister came down on Friday night and the two roommates, her and myself took it easy Friday in order to be well rested for Saturday nights party.  First on the agenda was dinner out and then over to a late showing of Black Swan.

Crazy good, I really loved it, and never have I felt more sane in my life than after leaving that movie theater.  It’s a really intense movie, one that definitely leaves you thinking, and sometimes uncomfortable and covering your eyes.  I really recommended it, and wouldn’t mind going to see it again.

Saturday started bright and early with a trip to the gym, where I got in 50 minutes of cardio alternating between the treadmill, elliptical, and some other cardio machine kind of like the elliptical, and some weighted lunges.  Then it was to the grocery store to pick up some things for the night’s party, I was making a buffalo chicken dip.  Before long, all the ladies were ready and it was time for people to arrive.

Thanks to everyone who came, I hope you all had as much fun as we did!  With a bed time of around 5 am, I was slow to start moving on Sunday morning.  When I finally did, I made it about as far as the big comfy chair in the living room where I stayed until hunger drove me to Moe’s around 7:00.  There was some excitement in the day when a log exploded in the fireplace and sent embers and pieces of wood flying across the living room landing on the couch and carpet.  The couch was only on fire for a minute before we were able to move and throw the burning wood back into the fireplace.  Way too much excitement if you ask me.

Alright everyone, enjoy your Monday!
