This was a super Valentine weekend because my brother drove down from Idaho to spend it with me. Whoo hoo! I haven’t seen him since early January and now that I’m moving I’m not sure when we’ll be able to hang out again so I was glad he was able to make the drive down. Here he is:
Since he got here we’ve been mostly just hanging out, not doing too much. He brought Rock Band which I’ve always wanted to play but until this weekend had never done so. My inner rock goddess emerged and I’m quite certain the block will be lined up with people just itching to get into my band that I form when I get to Mesa. Just kidding – I totally SUCK!! My version of drum playing resembled a toddler sitting on the kitchen floor banging on pots and pans. As long as I kept the level on easy I was pretty so so on the guitar. Once I switched to medium the only song I didn’t fail and get booted off the stage on was Eye of the Tiger, and that’s only because even on the second level you only had to play one note at a time. My singing scores were the highest but before you start clearing your TV schedule to watch me on American Idol next year, you should know that as long as I was making noise when the notes came up I got points.
Since it was Valentine’s Day we had to do our part to celebrate. So, we made heart shaped sugar cookies:
Yummy! Now it’s not that I have anything against Valentine’s Day, I just thought these cookies would be a little more fun to have if they looked like this:
Double yummy! What could look better than grimmy, grody, gray colored heart cookies with special, personalized messages written on them?
We also went to the movies and saw Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Kind of lame but it had a couple of funny moments. Basically that’s been the weekend so far and I’m lovin it. Hope you all had a great Valentine weekend!
