Jimmy Fallon and a Weekend Update. How Fitting.

LAAAADIEEEES! It's been a long day. But now I'm home. On the couch. With wine. And ice cream. 

Is there anything better? 

Tomorrow there will be a crock pot recipe coming your way, so stay tuned if you're interested! (It was a fail for me, but boyfriend LOVED it. And I think I know how to fix what went wrong, so special notes will be involved.)

As for today, it's time for a weekend update. (See what I did there? Heh.)

Friday: Sat around most of the day, finally got around to grooming my eyebrows (which means I paid someone to wax them), and cleaned. Super fun, right? BUT! At about 2:00 I got a text from a friend asking if boyfriend and I wanted to double date with him and a giiiiiirl! This wouldn't be so awesome, except that this is a girl we've never met, and frankly, it's surprising. Soooo, we ended up going to some super hipster restaurant in Old Town. The girl was really nice, I'm happy to say. After that, they split, but E and I went down the street to our favorite bar. Hey! The night was still young, and so are we! Anyway, three drinks and a shot later... that's all I remember. 

Saturday: Woke up with the headache to match my lost memories. We sat around most of the day before we finally decided to DO STUFF. We went to IKEA! If you know me well, you know that IKEA can be more dangerous to me than Target (gasp!). I know, but it's true. So a massive amount of money later, we have a new rug and lots of little things that we didn't really need. And we're going back next weekend to get the stuff we do need. Since we were up in that direction, we spent our evening DUCK PIN BOWLING! If you have never done this, please GO. NOW. It is SO fun. There's something about using a bowling ball that resembles a shot put that makes bowling so much more awesome. 

Teeny tiny!

We always play two games. And we almost always tie. Here's the proof that this time was no different:

I'm GEM (obv). I lost the first game.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

 That was our Saturday. I think boyfriend had a couple extra hours than I did because I totally zonked on the way home, and then transplanted to the couch and fell immediately asleep again. I didn't wake up until he woke me up at 1:00 a.m. to go to bed! Busy days are too much for me!

Sunday: Brunch with our friend and his lady friend at one of our favorite restaurants -- always fun. Then more shopping. You're probably asking yourself, "How can she shop so much?!" Well, it's easy. I just can. Plus, sometimes I'm egged on by the boy. (He likes loves to shop so much.) So after adventure number three for the weekend (can you keep up?), I DISCOVERED THE BEST ICE CREAM IN THE WORLD. I'm not exaggerating. And really, that's saying something because I'm not so much a fan of ice cream; I'd rather eat ice of some sort or sorbet. Okay, so ohmygoshbesticecreamever. It's Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack. It was inspired by Jimmy Fallon. (Now you get it, right?) Let me quickly tell you about this ice cream. I say quickly because it's siren-calling me from the freezer right now and I MUST HAVE IT. It's vanilla bean ice cream with salted (salted!) caramel swirls and clusters of chocolate-covered potato chips. Okay, now if you've never had chocolate covered potato chips by themselves, you need to try them. But in ice cream, they are even. better.

So that was my weekend. Oh, and I made potato soup. But more about that tomorrow. Now go enjoy what's left of your Monday night! Oh, who am I kidding? Just go grab a glass of wine and put your feet up.
