another weekend has come and gone.

This weekend has been a lot like the past few weekends: TOO SHORT!
I ended up staying in Friday and writing a blog post, then studied a bit for my midterm for my Human Resource Management class *groan*.  I volunteered to work the Hazardous Waste event with a few of my coworkers on Saturday and we had a great turnout.  This was my second year working the paint section and we stayed busy the entire 4 hours I was there.  Then I squeezed in a hair appointment before doing an early dinner with my friend Mary.  We had to catch up on the season finale of "The Walking Dead" and what's to become of our beloved characters.  We're seriously in love with that cast and the infatuation became worse when we met a few of them at Wizard Con in New Orleans.

 Aren't these flowers gorgeous?  I saw them and became even more anxious for spring to hurry up and get here.  We've had a pretty dreary weekend with all of this rain.  So with my little free time I had Saturday night I cleaned my bathroom and rewatched old movies I've seen a hundred times waiting for Andrew to come over.  

We had a low key Sunday.  We went to church with my family and I loved that my priest referenced "What About Bob?" in his homily, haha. Then we had lunch with my Dad and Mom before we went and saw "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".  I won't give anything away, but I will say I enjoyed it more than the first one.  The rest of the evening was spent doing laundry and hanging out with Andrew before he left me to do my midterm online.  I feel like I did a good job on it so now it's time to enjoy my clean sheets below and mentally prepare for another work week.

I met up with my book buddies two weekends ago.  I'm just now posting cause school has been a little hectic.  I should be studying, but here I am blogging instead... cause let's be honest, blogging is way more fun. Chelsea came down and we had a lovely start to the day by eating at this cute restaurant in downtown Ocean Springs that she had suggested called Bayview Gourmet Restaurant.  The weather was on our side so we were able to eat outside and watch the festival that was going on also.  
Isn't this couple holding hands adorable?  I couldn't resist getting a snapshot.  Anyways, back to our girls day... After brunch we went and saw Divergent with Shailene Woodley and Theo James.  Oh my, did I love it!  There was lots of fangirling going on whenever Theo came onscreen, and man that Shailene Woodley can act with her eyes.  She's becoming one of my favorite actresses.  It stayed pretty true to the book in my opinion so I always like that.  Us book readers hate when important parts of the book get changed during the adaptation of the screenplay.

Later in the evening we had dinner with our guys at Buffalo Wild Wings, where I kicked butt at their trivia game (at least for a good portion of the night).  Me and Mary's husband (Matt) got pretty competitive with each other, haha.  We ended the night with a few hours of neon light laser tag and goofy golf.  I haven't had that much fun in awhile and I always have a good time when me and Andrew (the boyfriend) do couple dates.  There were some annoying middle school kids there who parents left them for a fun night out themselves I'm guessing, but we didn't let that spoil our fun. Can't wait to for us to all meet up again soon and relive our favorite books.
