G’Mornin’ Folks! It’s the weekend!!!! WOOT WOOT!
Can I just tell you how psyched I was about my Friday evening?
You may or may not be aware of the fact that I am obsessed with scary movies. Give me suspense, blood, gore, horror, terror…I love ‘em all. So it should be no surprise that I have been anxiously awaiting the release of Paranormal Activity 2!
Jay, on the other hand, could take or leave (preferably leave) scary movies, so it’s usually a bit of a process to get him to agree to watch one. Luckily for me, asking friends to join us in our trip to the movie was one easy way to coerce him. So we met up with Brian & Mal to tackle the spooks, and I must say, I definitely enjoyed the movie! I haven’t decided if it’s as good as the first one, but it was still really good. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sitting with my hands half covering my face for a good portion of the movie.
After the movie, Jay and I were in need of some dinner, so we stopped and grabbed a quick piece of pizza – white broccoli & tomato for me. Yumm!
Dinner had to be quick since we needed to be somewhere to celebrate a very special occasion…
It was our friend Kate’s Birthday!
Jay and I met up with Kate, Joe, and a few others at a local bar that I had actually never tried, Wollf’s Biergarten in Albany.
This is the front of the building…it’s actually an old fire house! Cool, right?
So if you go to the Biergarten on your birthday, they have what they call “Das Boot” – a gigantic boot of beer, which you have the pleasure of sipping on for the evening. Even though Jay and I didn’t stay for the entire evening, Kate was definitely holding her own with this monster. Way to go, Kate!
I, on the other hand, wasn’t really in the mood for beer, so I sipped on a nice glass of Riesling while chatting away…
…and munching on some peanuts. (No, those were not all mine! I don’t like them that much!)
So I couldn’t stay out too late last night, since I have big things happening today. I’m tellin’ you…I am absolutely giddy with excitement right now!
Yes my friends, I am about to embark on my first trip EVER to both Trader Joe’s AND Whole Foods!! Now how’s THAT for a Saturday day trip?!?
I’ve got my coolers packed, my wallet ready, and my game face on.
Question for the Morning:
HELP!! What recommendations do you have for a first timer at Trader Joe’s & Whole Foods?!? I need some suggestions!
