Sorry. I know the title is seriously random, but isn't that what this blog is about anyway? J and I watched SuperBad again this weekend and I can't stop throwing the lines out. Samesies!! We also trekked over to a nearby city to watch Cloverfield in the theatre. I'll rate this movie 7 out of 10. The pros? The unique angle of the filming (unless you consider BlareWitch on the same level, which I don't). The cons? If you are prone to anxiety attacks then this movie is not for you. It. Is. Tense.

A few photos from the weekend:

I love old broken down sheds. They make the best still life. Eerie moment of the weekend below. Driving down the highway with J, saw this amazing site. Not sure if you can see them well enough but that's thousands of birds flocking above this lake in the middle of a field. That shot only captured about a third of the birds.

And now for my favorite photo of the weekend, Baber's delicious grilled redfish with spicy corn and mushrooms. I can't tell you how yum this meal was. I think he purposely fed this to me right before I had to hit the road back to home, maybe an attempt to make me stay?

As usual, we had an awesome time. While J was grilling the fish I was playing with the fire. I'm obsessed now I think. I really hated to leave him.

Well, since this has obviously become a photo post, I figure I'll throw in a couple more. Below is a set I just made for an order. What? Oh yes, I know I need to vacuum, shut it!

And a couple of other pieces I did.

I have so much more to post including an award I received (thanks Claudia!) but I have really got to catch up on housework and laundry. I'm taking advantage of being off today by getting my life back in order. I was up at 7:30 am and its gone a little something like this: Same Walton's House of Horrors (as Papa calls it) for healty food like brown rice, shrimp, Lean Cuisines and flavored water. Check. To the tailors for slacks. Check. To Hobby Lobby for some crafties. Check. Visited the fruit stand for fresh pineapple, edamame, bell peppers and mushrooms to name a few items. Check. Back in time for some homemade fish tacos. This hardly feels like a diet. *rubbing happy belly*

Oh yeah, blog post. Check.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

I'm delighted you had such a nice weekend - hurray! I bet you didn't want to leave him. This is getting kind of old. I would totally hate it - but.... he's also totally worth it.

Glad you had a good time - lovely pictures.

Have you done anything about Etsy yet? If you have, and you can work out how it all works, could you drop me an email and explain it to me? Thanks! x

I love those abandoned factory pix, I actually dig them up from time to time on flickr. There's something about them that's just cool.

Good 2CU guys had fun over there Jillie.

Great photos, I dig the silo. I also Cloverfield, but didn't like the ending. :(

Simply Curious said...

I always thought my diet would go SO much better if I enjoyed seafood. I can't do it! I do the chicken breast thing instead...

I *so* want to see Cloverfield. I did get an invite for this Sunday, so I might just check it out...

I love your photos of the old buildings! I've been thinking a lot about architecture this morning (which you can see here if you like), so to come across these was just great. Don't you just love synchronicity!

Tex's Missus said...

Great photos and more jewellery for me to covet :)

Doc said...

- an OK movie
- over hyped
- glad I only spend 7.50 per ticket for the matinee
- the leaning/collapsed building part really annoyed me
