Is it really Monday already? Boy that weekend went by in a flash. It must be because it was such a good one. Here’s my recap.
Friday night snacks. You know the drill.
Friday night Mexican Train game. It’s quite addicting, I must say. We played again on Saturday night with Jo-Ann and Shawn.
And speaking of Jo-Ann and Shawn, we spent the better part of Saturday together and had a blast. We went back to the brewery and sampled more beer. Once again Jo-Ann and I were fans of the stouts while Dale and Shawn liked the hoppier varieties. They also had a saison this week that was delish.
And then we went to our high school cafeteria to check out the mattress sale. Their daughter was there working on behalf of the music program and we had no intention of buying a mattress. And yet – we did. We’ve needed a new one for a while but hadn’t really done much research on it so we figured we’d just test some out. Turns out testing some out was all we needed to do. We quickly realized that neither of us liked the memory foam ones and went with a traditional Beautyrest something-something. All I know is it’s being delivered in a couple of weeks. Shawn, as you can see, was a huge help with this. And, as Jo-Ann said, you know you live in a small town if you’re testing out mattresses in your high school cafeteria on a Saturday afternoon.
We spent the rest of the evening at our house, swapping stories and laughs, eating chicken wings (so good!) and playing Mexican Train. And maybe drinking some more beer. Only maybe, though.
On Sunday, after a morning of puttering and chores, we headed out to get some oysters. When we got home Dale shucked ’em and I prepped our other snacks – some cheese and crackers and shrimp.
It was a great Sunday dinner and a really excellent way to finish up a really excellent weekend.
What did you do this weekend?
