Home Bodies

Happy Monday! 

Our weekend really got kicked off Thursday night when we went to the Civil Twilight and Young the Giant show. Fred is a fan of both and I somehow won us backstage passes after the show via Twitter. But what we didn't know was that we actually got to get on their tour bus. Young the Giant was super cool and it was an experience.
On the bus:
 The rest of the weekend certainly didn't match the excitement of Thursday night.  We still have repair people coming in and out constantly and it feels like we're always waiting in a 4-hour call window.

But to pre-occupy my time, my books came in and I got a head start.
When someone wasn't here, we were lazy! And if you know us, you know lazy days around the Smithwick house are far and few between.  We're always up to something.

Here's proof (love this pic because this is how we wake up every morning):
In the middle of all of our home repairs from the lightning, we decided to switch from cable to satellite.  So the majority of Saturday afternoon was spent catching up on all of the Real Housewives episodes I've missed since for some reason we didn't get Bravo. 

And Saturday night, I had to do something I'd never done.  We watched Fried Green Tomatoes.  I feel like I was cheated out of my Southern girl heritage by not watching this.  You definitely must watch!  It's a great movie!
And what better way to end a lazy weekend than to catch the first episode of True Blood (season 5)? Oh, how I've missed it!

So, what did you do this weekend?

Sounds like a fun weekend, minus the house repair things. I had no idea True Blood was back on, we just got rid of HBO and hubs isn't too happy with me! Love, Fried Green Tomatoes, big props to Fred for watching it with you! Hope you have a good day love!

Lazy weekends are the best! I'm sorry you're still dealing with repairs but I'm glad you were able to take a load off and relax this weekend! :)

I never have watched Fried Green Tomotoes and probably should. I know my parents watched it when I was little but I was sent to the room to play and not allowed to come out into the living room because it was inappropriate for me at that time - strange the things we remember.

Fried Green Tomatoes is a classic movie (and awesome book too!). I always have to watch it when it's on TV!
