Really I do, which is why I didn’t have a chance to blog all weekend.
Please excuse the Christmas themed notepad, they were on sale at AC Moore last year and I went a little crazy. We had a LOT to do this weekend. And to top it off Erik had two football games and two softball games. But more on that later.
Friday night we went over to Hyojon’s house for a turkey fry and outdoor movie. I told him I would make some potato salad and a bean salad. I used this recipe, for my potato salad, but instead of TWO CUPS of mayo I used two cups of Trader Joe’s Greek yogurt! Oh man it was so good. I also only had russet potatoes which I think made the texture of the salad a bit mealy, but other than that it was amazing. When I make it again for Sunny’s birthday party I will use red skinned potatoes.
For the bean salad I used this recipe, and it was also amazing. Our friend Sarah made the most amazing Thai pasta salad (I am pretty sure it was Thai), oh man so good! I hate that I didn’t take any pictures of the wonderful spread of food we had, I blame it on the deep fried turkey (food coma). It was a great night with some pretty amazing friends.
Saturday morning we got up and started tackling our list. We headed over to Costco for our monthly run. We obviously bought more than what was on our list, but that always happens when we go to Costco. By the time we got back, Erik had to rush out the door to his football game. Sadly, I can not participate in either football or softball this season, which really hit me hard at the softball game last night… arg….
While he was gone, I managed to knock off most of the items on my list and helped out a bit with Erik’s list by mowing the back yard. Even with a self propelled lawn mower, it is quite difficult to mow the lawn with one fully functional arm. But I did it and I am so glad I did, because Erik was very grateful when he got back from his game! The rest of our day was spent watching UVA/UNC and VT/ASU games. Unfortunately UVA lost their game, but at least one of our teams one GO HOKIES!
Sunday morning we woke up and both had a major craving for waffles! They were fantastic as usual. Erik was supposed to have another football game in the morning but had hurt his back at Saturday’s football game, and he decided it was better if he sat this one out. Insert more list tackling here…..
For the remainder of the day we headed down to Haymarket to help Hyojon’s dad move stuff out of his storage unit. Three light boxes into the move, and I was done. Worthless…
Our efforts were greatly rewarded with a fabulous Mexican Linner (lunch/dinner in case you missed that). I got the California Burrito which was in fact the size of a newborn. I could only manage to eat half, sorry again no pictures. We headed home with our bellies stuffed, and decided that we were going to clean the inside of our cars before watching the recorded Redskins game. I vacuumed and Erik detailed the inside of both of our cars. Then I finished putting out the rest of my fall decorations:
The skins game was awesome to watch, and we WON! HAIL!!!!
As I mentioned before, Erik had two softball games last night. We could only stay for one of them because the games started so late, but I really had a hard time watching knowing I wouldn’t be able to play this year…I will just leave it at that, I think you know how frustrated I have been lately.
I woke up this morning determined to make this a good week! So hopefully I will get the call from my doctor’s office soon to schedule my surgery and move on with my life! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
