Be to the Yonce

I'd be lying if I told you I'm a football fan.

It wouldn't even be a little white lie- it'd be a big ole honking lie. 

Now please don't get me wrong- I have nothing against football; I don't dislike it, you're just not apt to see me watching a game in my free time. 

I did watch the Super Bowl yesterday.  (and by watch I really mean drink a lot of wine, eat a lot of finger food and spend the entire evening talking to the large group of people my parents had at their house to watch the game).

Me, via Instagram, on Super Bowl Sunday- probably one bottle of wine in by this point.
The only time you could find me with my butt on the floor in front of the tv was when Destiny's Child was on- woot woot I loved it!!! I didn't think all three would be there- so it was so much fun to relive my high school years with watching them perform!  (I'm sure the fourth member and other former members are kicking themselves right about now!)

Anyone else wish they had a chance to jump out of the floor like Kelly and Michelle did?  Consider that the newest addition to my bucket list- so if anyone can help a girl out, I'd be much obliged :)

Hubby drove us home because I was drunkenly passed out serenely napping for the hour ride- very grateful to him for that :)  It's unreal to believe that it's already Monday, and I did a horrible job at taking pictures of the weekend, but besides the Super Bowl yesterday, here's how I filled up the rest of my weekend:

Friday:

Hubby and I saw Silver Linings Playbook.  Even though we got to the theater a bit late and the only open spots were in the second row, which left me with a major headache from craning my neck back for 2 hours, I loved it!!  It was funny, realistic and just all around charming!  I don't think it'll win for Best Picture, but it was definitely worth the fifteen bucks and headache.


Saturday I went shopping for some art materials for my latest craft- when that's completed I'll be showing it on here!  I also went grocery shopping for the various things we made Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday night my mother-in-law came over and we tried our hand at home-made pizza.  I made the dough earlier in the day, so hubby and his mama only had to worry about putting the toppings on their pizzas!  I must say, they turned out really well!

I have to admit, I'm a bit impressed that I made those :)

After she left we thought about going to a neighboring town's bar/festival, but decided we were just not in the mood, so we stayed in and watched Do No Harm that we had dvr'd and some random Big Bang Theory episodes that were on.  Do No Harm was pretty interesting- a bit out there, but fun to watch.  And let's be honest- The Big Bang Theory never disappoints!  (Does anyone else agree that they have the BEST theme song?  I love it!)



Sunday hubby and I got to see my brother & his girlfriend & their son's new house- GORGEOUS!!!  I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved it- there's so much space and it'll be so fun to see how they make it their own!!  I wish I had taken a picture of the windows in their house- love love love them!

After that, we headed to my parent's house for my monthly book club, and then Super Bowl festivities began!  I made this Funfetti Cake Dip for the book club, and this lightened-up version of spinach and artichoke dip.  Both were really good and super easy to make! 

The Funfetti Cake Dip was much sweeter than I imagined, but yummy all the same, and I think with the spinach & artichoke dip I would use a bit less spinach next time.  But still oh-so-good!

Now it's Monday, which means the weekend's over- but only 5 days left until the next one :)

How was your weekend?  I'm linking up with Sami for the weekend update- you should too :)
